Italian
BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

Brio had sent me a $10.00 certificate so I decided to take advantage of it. Last night my husband and I went for dinner and enjoyed it very much. We shared two dishes, the lasagna and the shrimp and lobster fettuccine. Both were delicious and one of the reasons we liked our dinner so much was because everything was homemade and made with quality ingredients. We were happy that we had a coupon because although the food was great, we felt that the shrimp and lobster entree was overpriced. We were disappointed because it came with only five shrimp and five small pieces of lobster. Aside from this, we loved Yadi, our server, who was pleasant, personable, and gave us exceptional service. We will definitely return, but next time, we will order some other entrees.

The food was very good. The server tried but, he seemed to have too many tables to take care of. We had to wait too long for our orders to be taken and, too long to receive them. The last few times this seemed to be the norm.

It took us over an hour after our Open Table reservation time to get seated. We were told we would be seated "next" while several other groups were seated next before us.
One of our guests entered was still frozen after two recooking attemps. They did remove the charge, but offered no other choice.
Not a very pleasant experience.

The receptionist as we walked in is in the wrong job. There was one that was nice (short and dark hair) but the other girl was rude and has a personality problem. I addressed this to the manager and all he said was "we are busy". I guess this girl never learned how to deal with the public or ever learned how to smile.

There were many times when our server was missing for a long time. Food we ordered wasn't delivered, some was overcooked, manager's response was to explain rather than apologize. All the service issues only made the mediocre food less acceptable. I really don't understand how this place is so popular.

It was a Wednesday evening and the place was slightly busy. They seated us right away. We ordered appetizers first and unfortunately it took 35 minutes to get them. The waiter served us our appetizer and salads at the same time instead of doing it one at a time.
The main meal then came very quickly after the appetizer. Would have preferred it to be spaced better.
I was surprised how small the calamari was. We get calamari almost everywhere we go and this was definitely the smallest portion we have seen at many many restaurants.
I was not over impressed with the service, good or quality.

The food was not outstanding good, certainly not worth the trip. The Bolognese pasta was dry and we had to ask for extra sauce....The lamb chops were overcooked but not badly seasoned. The wine selection was nice too. The waiter although nice, was not extra attentive or interested on providing an experience....
I'm glad we visited but with so many great restaurants in the Miami area, Brio was a miss...Maybe the big, bright, noise chain restaurants are not for me....

We felt, even though making reservations that we were not welcome as patrons. I asked with the reservation for somewhere a bit quiet. And they put us in front of the kitchen. Additionally we waited as significantly longer period of time for our waiter to acknowledge us being present, and it just wasn’t the usual visit that I am use to at Brio. Love going to Gulfstream, but next time will go elsewhere

My dinner at Brio was good but not great. My husband ordered the pasta with Bolognese sauce which he said was good but the portion was very skimpy. Pasta is very inexpensive and to have it skimpy is unacceptable. I ordered the roasted chicken which was way overcooked and therefore very dry. I had to order extra sauce just to make it easy to swallow.

While my drink was delicious and the service excellent, they need to fix the other issues mentioned above.

La calidad del servicio bajó mucho. Hubo demora para recibir la entrada y luego el principal. Entre un plato y otro, no reiraron los platos de la comida anterior. Lo mismo con los vasos. Eramos 7 y en un momento teniamos 20 vasos en la mesa.
La csrta cambió y por ejemplo la burrata no está mas.
Una pena.

We have come several times to this restaurant and it was great. Something changed and the menu is different and I would anticipate that is the first disappointment for returning customers. On our visit last Sunday Jan 13th, we went for my son's birthday and the food took almost an hour to arrive.
3 Children pizzas 45 min, the rest of the plates (Salmon Salad, Roasted Chicken and Pomodoro Pasta) took 60 minutes. I don't know if this was a one time issue but there were several customers complaining about. Waiter was courteous but the general experience was not good at all. Not coming back unless there is a formal confirmation this situation will change.

Horrible food and service. We have been coming here since it opened years ago. They changed the menu and options were horrible. Starting with white peach sangria, which was an extremely sweet pink drink, not like before. Sent it back and they would not remake. Food took forever to arrive even though the restaurant was half empty on a Saturday night. The pasta was so hard it couldn’t be chewed. No parmesan offered and had to wait 10 minutes to finally get someone to bring it. Asked to speak to manager, but was told no manager available because they were in a meeting?
After many years of loyalty, we will not be returning.
