Had a great dinner the other night. Two of us loved the lobster and shrimp ravioli (perfect amount of spice). The crab cakes were average, as they were not traditional Maryland crab cakes. The atmosphere was perfect for a small group conversation, with not too much noise.
They handled our nut allergy perfectly (peanuts &tree nuts). No dessert though, as most were brought in and had warnings.
Parking was free in the garage across the street. Will go again.

Thank Harriet T

3 of us went to the Brio Tuscan Grille for Easter brunch and all were delighted with the meal. Two had the Sicilian Omelette and the other had the Grilled Salmon Fresca. The omelette was very large (half the plate) and contained ham, bacon, sausage, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, mozzarella and served with brunch potatoes. It was outstanding and very filling. the Grilled Salmon Fresca was served with grilled asparagus, roasted sweet potatoes, spinach, red peppers, pesto, feta wit a balsamic glaze. It too was outstanding. For dessert we had the Dolchino Trio with Creme brulee, caramel mascarpone cheesecake and something with fresh strawberries.

We've eaten here 3x - 4x when we're in town. Unfortunately, the food here is not the same quality as the food in the (now closed-for-good) Bethesda location. We raved about the food in the Bethesda location, every time we went there. This time, we shared the Pizza Margherita. My wife had the lamb chops, and I had the pasta with pesto. For dessert, we shared the caramel cheesecake. I felt the pizza margarita was made as cheaply as possible: The tomatoes were so thin you could see through them, and the pesto sauce was so liquid, it was like soup. Remember that commercial, "Where's the Beef?", Well, this time, it's, "Where's the Basil, parm & garlic?" The pesto needs a LOT more Basil, parmesan cheese & garlic - at least for my taste. We were greeted very warmly at the front door, and kudos to our waitress who gave me extra pesto sauce. I'm sure we'll return, but not with great expectations. The valet parking is only $2, and it's right outside the restaurant. There's also a Sur La Table store across the street. Both of these are pluses.

Friday evening at about 7:00 PM (02-23-18) I was a party of 2 and we entered Brio. The Hostess politely greeted us upon entering. The dining room and bar area appeared to be rather busy, you know how Friday evenings can be. I told the hostess we would like to get a table. She asked if we had reservations which we did not. She told us it would be about a 15-minute wait but told us there was a table for two available in the bar. That was perfect! We were going to sit at the bar initially, but the bar looked full of the Happy Hour patrons.

She showed us to the available table and provided us with menus. She told us our waitress would be with us shortly. She was correct. Our waitress appeared moments later and introduced herself as Leslie. Leslie took our drink orders and asked us if we would like water as well. I mention this because these days I frequently must ask for water. These days it is an afterthought for servers. A few years ago, a glass of water was a standard like eating utensils. You get seated at your table, and each diner is provided and menu and a glass of water. Kudos to Leslie for offering us water!

Leslie was personable, professional and well informed about the menu. We had questions about some of the specialty cocktails as well as some of the details of the menu options. Leslie was able to share with us the details of the cocktails and the food. Leslie checked on us at reasonable intervals and was very pleasant each time. I frequently write that my money will spend anywhere, but the customer service is what really makes the difference. Kudos to Leslie for making the difference! Bistro should be proud to have Leslie as an Ambassador representing the company! Thank you, Leslie! You Rock!
