Absolutely the worst meal I have ever had. – I can't say how bad this meal was.I Everything was heavily salted including the Cesar salad. I had the Chicken Lemone (they should add floated in oil in the menu's description). My wife had linguine with shrimp and scalops. She had the same problems I had, but her noodles were uncooked.
How can this guy call himself a chef?
Great Bar Drinks – Fantastic atmosphere and great Chocolate Martini's
Great Food, Awesome Bartender – The food is always incredible. After dining on the patio we went inside to have some after dinner drinks in the bar area. Jordan was working the bar and went the extra mile to make our difficult drink orders just the way we wanted them ...
The only con to our experience was Beth the bar manager who we found to be very unprofessional and rude.
Creative, delicious menu – Great service, especially friendly staff and greeted by the executive chef. I had goragonzola steak salad and steak was cooked perfectly. Great flavors. We topped it off with the cheesecake for dessert and it was better than the factory. The moulten chocolate cake is a favorite as well as the Sunday Brunch
Scott and Ben are the best bartenders ever!!!!! – Look..... the food is fantastic and the decor is second to none but the experience is not nearly complete unless you sit at the bar for about 30 minutes. The two best bartenders in houston are at the Brio and if you havent been served by Scott or Ben then your not living. These guys are fantastic!!! My wife cant stop laughing with them and the drinks they conjure up are fantastic!!!! If you do go be sure to order a drink called "frappe de l'arange" Scott hates to make it and its not even on the menu anymore but they will make it if you ask and it is mind blowingly delicious!!!
Dine Early – My girlfriend and I decided to have dinner here recently and found this place to be about average. The atmosphere is inviting and the lighting is great. The food we ordered, salmon & steak, tasted great. The complaint I have is with the staff. We had one of the later reservations of the night, and the hostess let it be known that she was unhappy about being there. I noticed a few open tables when we walked in, but yet we had to wait for over 15 minutes to get seated....with a reservation! Our server was not knowledgeable of the menu and that's always disappointing. Unfortunately, we decided not to order dessert since it was clear most of the staff was scurrying to close the place even though there were several parties still dining! As we were finishing up the main course, one of the servers came over and started with the vacuum cleaner under our table and under the feet of the people next to us. We might come back for lunch some time. My advice would be to get seated at the beginning of the lunch or dinner shifts if you're not looking to be rushed.
Great Ambiance, great food – This is possible one of the best Italian places you will eat. The inner decor is fantastic, very classy and elegant. The servers are prompt and attentive, and the bartenders make great drinks!
Despite being a chain, they provide some of the best tasting food I've ever had. The lasagna is second to none, and my father said his lamb was the best he's had in his life. The desserts are amazing. My only (slight) complaint is that there are not a lot of vegetarian options, and those that are available are good, but not spectacular as the rest of the food.
Very Pleasing – I've visited this establishment twice and enjoyed the experience on both occasions. The atmosphere is very soothing and inviting. A great place for a date or family meal. The prices are moderate and the drinks are rather good. I had a rasberry and apple martini and was very pleased. I would recommend the Lobster Paste. I would make reservations if dining on a friday or saturday evening.
Editorial Review – Upscale chain brings Tuscan countryside fare and lingering alfresco dining to the Woodlands.
