Atlanta >Brio Tuscan Grille
“It's always a fun crowd and a good place to go with a group of singles.”
“Then we decided to do a Brio desert with cheesecake, creme brulee, and my favorite warm chocolate cake.”
“This so called "swanky" bar was nothing more than a room full of old unattractive workaholics who were looking to get lucky.”
“Our server was terrific, when we ordered two different pasta dishes, she said she would have the chef divide the two entrees for us.”
“In addition, their selections of martini's are great and delicious.”
“You can't beat this place for a great place to drink after work on a Wednesday.”
“We went for dinner on "Martini Wednesdays" - the drinks were strong, the inside and outdoor bars were packed with fun people, and the food was outstanding.”
“It's too bad the waiters are trained to upsell and oversell their already overpriced menu.”
“unhappy waiters, unfriendly receptionist who stood talking to the waitresses for several minutes while we waiting for a greeting.”
Great Food and Service. I have dined at the Ptree location a few times. Each time the food and service was great, especially the seafood dishes. I have also dined at the Ashford Dunwoody location. I wasn't impressed with the food, but the atmosphere was great.
Great Service, average food!. We went here for Valentines Day! The high ceilings give it a very spacious feel, which made it feel not so romantic. I don't have kids, but the kids around us were given balloons by the staff, which I thought was really cute. The food was a little salty for my taste, and my boyfriend and I ended up swapping the dishes we ordered. The Seafood Bruschetta was incredible--a really new take on your traditional bruschetta made with lobster and shrimp. Service was prompt even though the restaurant was crowded for Valentine's Day.
Overpriced.. Romantic!? do you want to dine with the peachtree "Highway" in front of you?. I went a few times there but the food have never been awesome especially the last time. I had this Tournedo : Just ridiculous, the meat was dry, cooked without ANYTHING (no seasoning at all) with some kind of artificial smashed potatoes straight from the frozen section of Kroger. That is definitively not Italian food. Completely over priced (I guess for the beautifull view). Lemonade oversweeted wich is actually not made from lemons but from concentrate (from Kroger too). Pizza are greasy...I am just wondering if the tenants have ever been in Italia.
Great Lunch, Brunch, and Patio.
Just had another wonderful lunch with a good friend at Brio. We arrived early, still cool outside, on the wonderful beautiful patio, facing world famous P'tree.
Our server was terrific, when we ordered two different pasta dishes, she said she would have the chef divide the two entrees for us. Pasta with Pesto, and the other with grilled chicken and bacon was wonderful. My friend took part of hers home for dinner, large portions. I know this is a chain, but it is very upscale, creative, and not for the Olive Garden crowd. For Italian-oAmerican cuisine, it can't be beat. The brunch serves some of the best frittata's in the city. Always good food and nice friendly servers. Weekend Brunch is also tasty!
The frozen bellinis are delicious!.
I have dreams at night about this place's pork tenderloin and wedge salads. The frozen bellinis are excellent, the waiters are always quick and curteous, the wait is usually fairly short.
I've always enjoyed my food and my experience at this restaurant.
High-end corporate Italian restaurant wins favor for its pastas, martinis and bustling patio..
Well-trained servers and familiar comforts are the hallmark of this high-end chain. By the looks of the patio crowd on Friday afternoons and packed bar on Wednesday martini nights, it's a big hit in Buckhead. The patio and a large bar serve as bookends for an airy, expansive dining room that's loosely accented with the themes of Tuscany. Brio's menu features a polished take on Italian cuisine with dishes like wild mushroom risotto.
Great choice for Italian.. If you're in the mood for Italian, I would definitely recommend Brio. The quality of the food is very good for a chain restaurant (I love the pasta with diavalo sauce). The dessets are well-presented and something you would normally see in a high-class restaurant. The prices are only a few dollars more than Olive Garden, but the value is much better.
Great atmposhere; not so great food. My Dad and I orderd the lamb. It was definately not the best I had ever had, but it was okay. I never had my drink glass refilled, and neither did my Dad. Towards the end of dinner, I was melting ice cubes in my mouth! The atmosphere was awesome. However, if you are looking for something quiet and romantic, this may not be your place. It was noisy, but we didn't mind. We also had the dessert trio. My favorite was the cheesecake, and then the crème brulee. The chocolate cake is dry and very dense. I am glad we tried it, but I will not go again.
it's ok. The food is bland and nothing special but the have quick service for lunch. Def. not impressive Italian. The lunch menu is priced OK but it is SO LOUD in there it can be hard to hear the person across the table.
You must try the Cheescake!. Ok, to be completely honest, the food is average. The lasagna is probably one of the best entrees on the menu. But you will be very surprised at how affordable this restaurant is! But what's absolutely to die for, the Cheesecake!!! Any time I'm visiting Atlanta, I always stop by and just order the cheesecake. It's is so creamy, made fresh in the restaurant. They place the cheesecake on it's side and place on the plate and somehow form a very very thin top layer of caramelized sugar on top of the cake and top it with a strawberry. Then they have this absolutely delicious raspberry sauce drizzled on the cake and plate to make it taste even better. I'm telling you, there is no cheesecake better than Brio's, I guarantee it!!! As a matter of fact, I'm leaving now to go get a piece.
