I have been to Brio's before. Usually we went for the Early Bird Special and the food was worthy of the low price. The Early Bird has been discontinued and now we are unlikely to go back again. The service was poor; admittedly St. Patrick's Day is a busy restaurant night but this was really poor. Of the four of... More

My family enjoyed this restaurant immensely. The service was just downright spectacular. And the food was even better. A real homey sort of feel with some superb Italian eats.

Enjoyed a casual lunch here yesterday with friends. Good selection of appetisers, portions and reasonably priced. Service was brisk. Risotto with butternut squash had plenty of flavour. Worth a visit whilst out shopping.

My group held a lunch meeting at this restaurant and the food and staff were superb. They have a delicious chicken parm plate and great desserts. A great place for dinner or happy hour they open at 4pm daily.

This was definitely a solid Italian place in Dana Point. I took the kids here with me and overall, the pasta was fresh and delicious and the wine list was superb.

When visitors came this week we wanted a new restaurant and so I looked online for recommendations. This led us to Brio Tuscany Grille. We were wowed with the quality of the food and the very reasonable lunch prices. The pasta tasted freshly made, portions were generous, and everything was delicious. No wonder by the time we left the restaurant... More

Just returned from Tuscany and we wanted to extend the feeling of the trip.Thought this would do it as reviews were great, but it fell short for us. . Food was ok, but nothing spectacular. Think the thing that didn't work the most was the ambiance. Very open floor plan with room for music and dancing among the table area.... More

We had one of the most enjoyable meals we have had in a very long time with the staff of Brio. We selected our wine and then turned the dinner over to the service staff. They selected each course and it was delightful. Fantastic experience.

Nice place known for music and dancing and food. Also, over 45-70 year old singles place. Can get crowded but can be fun too. To bad the bar area is so small.
