The quality of the food and the service.

Sep 21, 2014 Robert California, United States

Antipasto, Lobster/Crab Bisque, Spumoni desert. Staff was polite and friendly.

Service was very, extremely SLOW. Characteristic of a serious kitchen problem. Food varied. Rigatoni with creamy tomato sauce and gren peas was dull - not their usual fare - we left most of it on our plates. Maiin course, 1.: Veal Marsala - good, but half of the veal was so tough it was nearly impossible to cut. (the other piece was very tender). The Lobster/Crab Raviolli looked good, with creamy tomato sauce, but the pasta part was thick and gummy - stuck to my teeth, and the stuffing was virtually flavorless. Could not finish it. along with the interminable wait for it to arrive, it occured to me that they probably sent someon to the nearest Walmart to pick up a frozen ravioli diner, heating it when they got back to the kitchen. We have enjoyed Brio repeatedly in the past, but this time the food and service was not up to their past standards. Very unpleasant - return is unlikely. Staff was very nice and polite, but service was unbearably slow.
