    Dinner was good. Had to send salmon back as not quite done. Steak salad always a favorite but a little overdressed this trip. Miss those flatbreads which are no longer an option. Would return though and would recommend.

    I've eaten at Brio many times, and always left happy. However, last night, my friend and I ordered the pork chops. They had a funny taste and were very dry. Also the mashed potatoes were horrible! The lobster bisque was amazing as usual! Very dissatisfied with our dinner, that we sent back.

    My meat was not cooked well done , when the waitress returned to the table to check on us she observed that it was not well done (Rani) without me even mentioning it. I had cut it into smaller pieces to eat. It was very salty ( over seasoned) We did not have time to return it and wait for a fresh cook order because we had driven 3 hours and was tired and needed to check into the hotel. We have eaten at the Restaurant before but I was very very dissatisfied this time.

    I believe the menu is very stale. We only eat there every 3 months, but the items never seem to change. The special was Lasagna. Really? Is that the best you can do with Italian cooking what it is today? Check out some cooking shows and see what you might be missing.

    We always eat at Brios when we visit Harrahs in Cherokee. The food is so amazing and delicious. The overall freshness of each of our orders cannot be compared to any other restaurant around. I’ve tried several different items on the menu and there’s not one negative comment to make. Service was just as excellent. My favorite is the pork chops and the mushroom ravioli.. sooooooo good!!

    Always a first night favorite. Close by in SOCO Tower, easy open table reservation and long term servers. Wonderful crusty bread with a nice crumb chew and butter. Had the lobster bisque (shredded lobster bits instead of usual pieces); mushroom ravioli and marinated pork chops (enough to serve two).

    > Nothing but plain butter with the bread...how about olive oil with cracked pepper? > Butter was cold and you could not spread it on the bread. > Wife had fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. Bird tasted like it was a day old & had been reheated. > Only 1 desert choice. > Prosecco was great.
