Brio is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants, and this visit was no exception. The atmosphere was lovely and romantic, the food was delicious, and the service was wonderful and attentive. We will definitely be back!

We have lunch here often. It is usually awesome from the service to the food. Not sure what happened today but it was freezing inside and everyone had their coats on. The service was slow and the food finally getting out was even slower. Food was good, but all said not as great as in the past. Something has changed... More

I feel like access is weird, but I love this place. The food is delicious if understated. I have had mimosas here which vary depending on the bartender, but they are good to try each time. I think I'll return soon!

I have eaten at Brio quite a few times and always been pleased. On New Year's Day, however, it was another story. The service was not up to par, in that we were offered our drinks and bread, but no plates to put the bread on. Also, for the amount of people in the restaurant, the service was pretty slow....

I really enjoy going to BRIO. I've never been disappointed with their food, and they have a nice selection of entrees. Its not a cheap dinner, but every once in a while you need to treat yourself!

We have had dinner many times in the past at this restaurant and have been very pleased. This time it was totally different; the service was very slow and our drinks and dinner were not good at all. Based on this visit we don't plan to return. So sad. We ordered very, very dry gin martinis, and they were full... More

We went to Brio for lunch and were seated in a booth (by request) that was next to the bar area. After about 15 minutes, none of the waiters approached us, and we were discussing leaving when the bartender came over, profusely apologetic, and said he didn't realize we had been seated there & we were his responsibility. It was... More

It was a cold, snowy evening in Covington the night that I attended a Christmas dinner for our local team of seven fellow workers and their spouses. The first mistake of the evening was the placement of the series of tables for our party that was positioned in the middle of the restaurant not far from the front door so... More

The food was great and service was good. Atmosphere is nice. A little pricey but great for a special occasion.
