Nice GF menu. We had a great lunch experience here. The Pasta Pomodoro with grilled chicken was tender and tasty. My GF dining companion enjoyed the Pasta Brio. I think the pasta is Tinkyada. Waiter reassured me that the kitchen cleans the work space and utensils when preparing GF meals, minimzing the risk of cross contamination. I will definitely be back
Great dining experience and consistent quality and customer service we have come to know while dining at other Brio locations! We will be returning!
So glad to find Brio in Bham! This place is even better than the Houston location -- if you can imagine that. The hostess reassured me that they serve gluten-free meals all the time and take the same precautions as their other locations to avoid cross contamination. The waiter did offer bread, so I took 1 star off for that , but the kitchen handled the meal perfectly. I had the GF pasta pomodoro and my fellow GF dining companion had the GF pasta brio.
The chef was very understanding and came out without my asking him to. He brought out the ingredients list for the pasta to make sure I had no allergies to it. They let me make my own dish and were careful to double check that every last thing was definitely gluten free. I felt very safe and had a great meal!
It's just okay! Very limited choices! Special when you have multiples food limitation.
Horrible experience! My father and I went here for lunch. There were only about 10 customers in the restaurant total and it took almost 15 minutes for a waiter to take our drink order. The food we finally received was barely warm and completely bland. I have celiac and tried their "Gluten Free" pasta and immediately got sick. I will NEVER eat there again!
Simple GF menu- 3 salad options, 3 pasta options, 3 grilled entrées (steak, chicken and salmon). Cross contamination issues are evident and are disclosed on the menu. Waitress stated the crème brûlée was GF but went to double check. When she came back she did say it the crème brûlée was stored next to chocolate cake (and she did not recommend ordering it for that purpose). The restaurant is upfront and honest about CC. This is why they got 2 stars still not great.I had a horrible reaction to the "GF" Brio pasta. The worst part was it didn't even taste that great to begin with. Mediocre at best. I would not recommend this to Celiacs, it maybe OK for people who are not super sensitive and or gluten intolerant.
I would have given this restaurant 5 stars, but the last time I was there, they had changed GF pastas, and for the first time, I didn't like it. They have other great non-pasta GF options. You can read my full review here: http://www.gfinorlando.com/2013/10/brio-tuscan-grille-winter-park.html
Good gluten free options
Limited but delicious gluten free menu! Picked up dinner to go a few times without any issues! Staff is very knowledgeable and pleasant.
be afraid! be very afraid!
Got GF penne Brio. Found a piece of pasta in my dish that was not gluten free. That means they cross contaminated. Not good! Called Manager and he apologized and asked to bring me something else. I had to refuse. Sorry, can't trust them now.
Delightful ambiance accommodating
DO NOT eat here if you have celiac disease! The fact that there is a GF menu is misleading. Staff knows nothing about GF, what it means, how to order it or prepare it, and also do nothing to help with the process. I was given attitude because of my special needs ( despite going at a slow time: 4pm), offering to speak with the chef or to educate these people. The worst dining out experience I've ever had.
They DO have a gluten FRIENDLY menu which includes GF pasta. It is a beautiful restaurant ant the staff was wonderful but for the price I was not impressed at all with the meal.
No gf menu, but the chef comes out to accommodate gf needs. Very professional. Have gone back several times.
