Simply the best must see & eat destination – Most authentic Italian atmosphere -- great food to enjoy and lots of socialness/activity to observe and to partake in (for the latter, sit at the oven-side counters at either side). For the most part, the help gets it too -- outgoing, fun and attractive contributes to the engaging have-it-your-way and feel-good experience. You can conveniently shop or drink when waiting for a table.
Great location, good food – Brio is a good, solid establishment. The food is quite good, the flatbread is delicious, the location is great, the service is average. Furthermore, the prices are so reasonable, that it's so easy to just pop in for a casual dinner.
We've had both dinner parties and dinner catered from this restaurant and the ingredients are consistently fresh, the dishes are to be expected for a good italian place. My only gripe is that we know quite a bit about wines that I don't need my underaged server making his commentaries.
I also very much disagree with the "new yorker" that first posted; we're new yorkers with good taste and frequent brio for what it is: a good, casual restaurant. Obviously, since your employer didn't pick up the tab for one of the top restaurants in the city, that's just indicative of the value of your opinion.
Brio service was very good. All food arrived hot and fresh. Wine recommendation from Server Mark was excellant.
Favorite place at Easton! – I have to strongly disagree with that last review: Brio is an excellent restaurant in both quality of food and service. Steaks are always excellent, pasta simple and delicious, and the garlic mashed potatoes are to die for. Great wine selection and each waiter I've encountered (three different ones at the time of this review) has been pleasant, quite accomodating (if I can substitute potatoes for soup, you can sub anything) and knowledgable. I highly recommend Brio!
fantastico! – when Brio first opened, I was not overly impressed with the restaurant. new managers came in, and what a difference. the food is outstanding, however, what I find truly outstanding about this restaurant is that all of the staff work together. Everyone busses tables, refills drinks and the manger on the floor remebers us by our first names, and always stops by our table to say hello, see how our food is and always sincerely thanks us for coming in to dine. now that is true Italian hospitality.
This Northern Italian eatery delivers delicious fare in an elegant setting, complete with a lovely outdoor patio. – The Scene
Brio's interior is all earthy shades of ochre and bright creams, like a Tuscan afternoon. Cushy booths and oversized palms lend some intimacy to this big place, which seats 300 patrons inside and on its outdoor patios.
The approach is Northern Italian, but it's as much a steak and seafood house as a purveyor of pastas. Meat and fish are seared over an open oak fire that enfuses the food with rich, woody flavors. The rare filet mignon is charred just right on the outside and served atop a thick slice of tomato, fried crisp with a Parmesan crust and a heap of shaved onion rings on the side. The appetizer of roasted clams in an iron skillet is loaded with garlic and oregano. Use the house bread to sop up the rich clam broth.
Great Eats – excellent food, excellent service, and a fun time watching all the hustle and bustle
Love it! – Great! I eat there whenever I stay overnight in the city.
Worth the wait – Beautiful atmosphere, great food, excellent service. Any restaurant owned by the Doody family can be trusted to have it all and this is no exception. The tournedos are fantastic and the veal is as tender as could be. The pasta dishes are very tasty and the staff is willing to substitute just about anything to suit your desire. There can often be a long wait so it is worth getting your name on the list early, but off peak hours provides no seating problem whatsoever. Not cheap but not overly expensive either. Price is suitable for the experience. Warm chocolate cake is fantastic.
Great service and atmosphere – I loved this place! The entire shopping center is chic! Children play in a unique fountain outside, which you can watch from the patio setting area! Oh, and the food is amazing! It is a place for trendy shopping and eating! Has a great crowd!
