I have dined with Brio Tuscan Grill in the past, but this time felt compelled to review.
I arrived at Brio Tuscan Grille just before noon on a Friday and to my surprise did not wait to be seated – the restaurant, albeit busy, provided immediate space. The restaurant is that of a large, open floor, high ceiling dining space. The “Tuscan” décor is immediately apparent and the high ceiling with streaming tapestry is a nice touch. Regretfully I felt as though I spent the entire meal yelling at my colleague as the roar of the patrons is stifling. The dining room rumbles with dialogue from the tables, each seemingly attempting to talk louder than the next. This may be the result of the large dome-like space.
The team serving us was friendly, not unlike the hosts, but did, unfortunately, need to be reminded of extra table flatware, indications for drink refills, and simple things like a spoon to stir my coffee, however, negating these oversights with accommodating pleasant demeanor.
I cannot speak on my friend, but I ordered the Mezza Chicken Limone and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys characteristic chicken. Aside from the elegant name, this lunch fare is simply Lemon Chicken with Campanelle Florentine. The chicken was flavorful, with lemon obvious with each bite, and the bed of greens accented the capers nicely; the portion size is perfect for a healthy lunch as well. I would also like to note the Campanelle Florentine was just a bit overcooked, but not enough for most to notice. Again, I recommend the Mezza Chicken Limone and Brio Tuscan Grille to all – we’ll see how things are next time: at dinner.
