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.

We are snowbirds fans of Brio since many years. We're missing the menu before this year change. We're missing the shrimp risotto. The mushroom ravioli was dry since any sauce... But the shrimp & lobster fettucine are great but the lobster is rare...

Valentine Day was very busy, but our hostess promptly seated us and our server quickly brought us our drinks and a tasty basket of bread, while we ordered and awaited our appetizers. Rachel and staff at Brio in Plantation were attentive to our needs, and the server politely checked on us until our food was served. He also knew exactly when to check on us, and didn't get in the way of table conversation. Great job! Even Rachel came by to check on everything and to make certain everything went well. We dine at Brio for the great flavors and consistency in their food, but its the people that work there, that make every visit not just a meal, but an experience. Well done!

First time we were ever disappointed at Brio. They took a fantastic sirloin steak off the menu and replaced it with a mushy steak half the size for the same money ($45). Boy, were we unhappy when this dinner showed up in place of the one we were expecting. Other than that, same Brio with great waitstaff who are stretched to thin but are pleasant and helpful. Explained steak switch after the fact when questioned. Wish he had said so before we ordered it.

we have been to Brio before but this was the worst experience-- the service was soooo SLOW that we spent nearly 3 hours having a meal--NOT dining! my partner ordered a house salad without onions-- it came without onions and other items, like olives. He ordered a lobster ravioli which came out after the salad and was cold-- as if sitting there for awhile. Our meals were luke warm and his fish special of mahi was dry and tasteless. We should have complained but after sitting there for nearly 3 hours to eat-- we just wanted to get out of there. Will not be going back!!

The food was OK. My wife’s pasta dish was very heavy with garlic. My two friend’s dishes were acceptable. My chowder was served cold and the replacement was only marginally warmer. My lemon chicken dish had potatoes that were one step above frozen. The chicken was hot and tasty. The replacement potatoes were warmer but tasted awful.
All in all, fair but I won’t be back

Brio has changed their menu and removed a few of our favorites - specifically the Lemon Chicken and the Seafood Risotto. The beer selection was dismal. Only 3 craft bottles to choose from and they were out of the one we wanted. Strawberry Pecan salad came with NO strawberries and just a few nuts that could be counted on one hand. The waiter noted that he saw that there were no strawberries - yet waited for us to complain about it before he brought us some! Overall the food was very good but this time we were a bit dissapointed in Brio.

We were seated right away since we had the reservation. The waiter was amazing and attentive. But it took an hour before the food came out our refill was put in a dirty glass (not our original glass but a glass from the kitchen ).

We have eaten at Brio’s in different cities for over 20 years. We ate at this location back in November and enjoyed it very much. They no longer offer the wedge salad we’ve always enjoyed. My husband ordered the pasta carbonara and our waiter advised against it. He said the recipe had changed and there was “no sauce.” My husband ordered something else. I had the pan seared salmon with sautéed spinach and fingerling potatoes. Both the salmon and potatoes were dry and tasteless. There are plenty of other options in Plantation; we won’t be back to Brio.

Service was terrible... waiter was rude, made no attempt to apologize for numerous problems, ignored us, and turned a special event into one of the most dissapointing meals we have ever had. The manager had to step in to get our food cooked, even though we had ordered more than an hour earlier...(we did not get drinks, just a salad appetizer, and pasta and chicken as main courses)... when the food came it was hot and very delicious..we had been there several times before.. the food and service were always fine... it will take a long while before we return again..

I held my daughters Baby Shower in Brio in Boca Raton.
There was quite a difference between the two.
Our waitress had a very large party and was so occupied with them we sat without anything at all for over 6 minutes.
Finally the person who seated us came, explained the situation and took out drink order. My husband received his Coke, I never received my Peach Sangria that I ordered until another waiter came over approximately close to a 12 min wait.

The waitresses assigned tables should have been reduced again due to the fact she had a very large party and they kept her extremely busy.

When our meals did arrive we were not asked if I needed grated cheese for my pasta dish.
Nor dud anyone check back on our beverages.
Very disappointing. It was not the waitresses fault but whomever did the table assignments.
I would not go back there for dinner

Service et repas excellents.
On était chanceux, car notre emplacement pas trop bruyant.
Pas le cas près du bar, ou s'il y a un gros groupe au milieu de la place, ce qui nous est déjà arrivé en 2 autres visites. La fois que nous étions près du bar, on a demandé d'être déplacés, car on ne s'entendait pas parler.
Les serveurs, très aimables, nous ont bien accomodés.

One of my favorite dishes was changed with the new menu. Pasta Pesto was a light dish with sundries tomatoes and spinach, a light pesto sauce and thin spaghetti. It s now made with thick spaghetti/linguini with gobs of pesto over chunks of chicken. Please bring back original recipe.

Upon arrival we were seated immediately. Our server was extremely pleasant & attentive. My husband enjoyed his pasta bolognese. My rosemary chicken was crispy and had both white & dark meat. It was a tad salty for me but mostly I enjoyed it. Our friends enjoyed their chicken & shrimp dishes. We had a leisurely dinner & were never rushed even though the restaurant was very busy. Nice evening.
