I worked here briefly. None of the "gluten free" options are safe. All of the "gluten free" pasta is cooked in the same water at the same time as the gluten pasta. The cook uses the same spatula all night on all dishes, so even the risotto is contaminated. There are no special protocols for gluten free meals at all, even if it is an allergy. Additionally, servers are supposed to know which items are gluten free/dairy free/peanut free and they just take a guess. I sent people away who asked for gluten free due to an allergy or Celiac because I knew nothing from the kitchen here was safe. As a Celicac, I never ate anything from the kitchen. The management will insist that their gluten free options are indeed gluten free because they don't know what gluten is. The grilled chicken is okay unless the grill cook uses the pasta spatula to flip it, which he often does. Even the strawberry salad uses contaminated candied pecans.

I ate dinner here and had no issue. The server was very knowledgeable about what is GF. I ordered a salad that was delicious. While I would have liked to enjoy something more than the salad I wasn’t very hungry. I will definitely return when I’m hungrier and try a different GF meal. Just note that Brio is expensive and that ordering an item with a diamond next to indicates it can be made gluten free. So you need to really speak up to the server and make sure they understand if you have Celiac.

Had a decent variety of options, but the gluten free noodles were not my favorite at all. Not many options in the casino for gluten free, so if desperate for something this is your place to go.

I ordered a salad gf. We saw it come out and then the waiter take it back because it had potato straws on top. Guess what I was finding in my salad?!? I asked the waiter (late 50's) if he knew what celiac was and he didn't. I educated him on it and encouraged him to google it. This was the first time I have never tipped. He was willing to make me sick w his ignorance! The manager never came out so I do not feel this is a company that cares about the safety of people.

Horrible. I made the server aware many times about my gluten allergy and he didn’t even let the kitchen staff know like I asked. We were literally right next to the kitchen. Everyone looked very upset to be there and it was so slow. I wouldn’t trust them as it doesn’t seem like any of them care. Even the manager looked pissed off. So we just left. Safely.

Experience may depend on what server you have. My first time going, I had the grilled chicken marsala and the server made me feel very protected, went through the whole menu with me, and there were no issues. The second time, the server simply pointed to the diamond marks on the menu and said that those were gluten-free. Imagine my surprise then, when we ordered the carpaccio appetizer that had a diamond mark only to have it brought with five pieces of bread on top so I couldn't have any of it. When we pointed it out, the waitress made no effort to remedy the situation except to agree that the bread had gluten and so the appetizer was not safe for me despite the black diamond on the menu, but assured the rest of the non-gf table that they would love it. Therefore, I am deducting a star for employee educational issues. This time I had the chicken limone entree and it was delicious with no gluten issues. Also, the supporting waitstaff who brought it to me verbally confirmed that it was made gluten free. So while there were many items on the menu that could be made gf, my advice about this place is to clearly communicate regarding gluten issues while ordering.

The menu states gluten friendly so not sure all the precautions they take. We have one child with celiacs and she got gluten free pasta with butter sauce. We personally didn’t think it tasted very good but she did only have butter on it. Food was expensive and service wasn’t great. Overall - we wouldn’t recommend this place

Ordered the pasta Brio, praise the Lord I have eaten here before and recognized that the pasta was not right. They gave me regular pasta when I made sure my server knew I was gluten free. Apologized about the pasta by bringing me a cheesecake with Graham cracker crust!

This place was HORRIBLE. They brought my chicken lemon out with breading on it, and the food runner assured me it was gluten free. The chef confirmed it had flour on it. Do not go here! Not safe for celiac.

Absolutely aweful! My food looked like it sat for a long time before serving. Sauce completely soaked into pasta and was mush. Had so much salt it burned my throat. Salmon was way over cooked, super dry. Nauseated and wondering if the pasta was gluten free. The woman’s bathroom was missing wood trim in spots, the sink and mirror area were super dirty and caked with dust, hate to see what the kitchen looks like. My husband had regular noodles and they were way undercooked. He had to cut them with a knife. Will never eat here again. I wish I could give all zeros. The waitress was fabulous!!!

I’ve gone to Brio for years because they have several GF entrees, including pasta. Recently we went there & I had a violent reaction to my food. It had to be cross contamination. Not certain if it was wait staff or in the kitchen. There’s so much new help since the pandemic. I’m sad as this was one of my go-to places. No more.

Not celiac friendly!!!

Service was not very good either. Our waiter seemed to have way too much going on to give the proper amount of attention. We were very clear that one of the four dishes we were ordering needed to be gluten free. He seemed to pass over it and not pay much attention to it. We had three orders of the Pasta Brio with one of them needing to be gluten free. My wife has celiac and had 5 bites and could already tell there was cross contamination. Would not recommend for anyone with any sort of gluten intolerance. Service was less than ideal as well. We will not be going back.

Delicious food! Items marked on menu that can be made GF. Asked server if GF pasta cooked separately from other pasta and it is. Only have GF rotini though. I ordered the Grilled Salmon Fresca and it was delicious. There were 6 adults in our group and I was only GF. Everyone got something different from the menu and all cleaned their plates. Our server Kat was wonderful and knowledgeable about GF items. Highly recommend!

The main menu has items marked that can be made GF. I had the steak salad and it was quite good (I'm not usually a salad guy). They marked the plate as GF to differentiate it from the others at the table that ordered the same thing. They do offer a pasta and salmon as well.

Sorry, but can’t recommend!! The menu marked things that could be made gluten free, but my stomach begs to differ. I confirmed three times that the pasta I was eating was GF, but maybe it was cross contaminated at the LEAST. My stomach and heart are throbbing!! At least avoid their pasta!

My friend is one of the managers here and he has told me all the steps they take to ensure there is no cross contamination. They offer salads, entree & pasta dishes. I had pasta brio and a Caesar salad for dinner. We started with a caprese salad app & finished with gelato for dessert. I wasn’t even slightly sick afterwards.

My daughter Ordered a salad with no Croutons and informed the waiter she is celiac. Waiter understood her condition, but didn’t write the order down. Salad came out with croutons. The waiter had the salad remade and my daughter believes they used the same chicken that was on the first salad. She has been sick the last few days after eating at Brio.

Maybe it’s due to COVID-19 that they had 90% of the gluten free menu crossed out...so I had a grand total of 4 options for food on the entire menu. I got the pasta brio and it wasn’t bad but wasn’t great. The waiter was awful though. Took forever to get to order and on top of that he kept looking around in a panic even though they weren’t very busy at all? 😂

I was originally supposed to go to Cheesecake Factory with friends for dinner, but the wait was 2.5 hours long, so we walked around and found this great place. I was so surprised at the plethora of options! From what I saw, they have special menus on request specifically for GF, vegan, vegetarian, and I think dairy free. They had starters, salads, a soup, 5-6 pasta options, steak, fish, and two desserts. I ordered the house salad plus carbonara with chicken added and loved it! I also highly recommend the peach bellini and peach sangria. Expect to pay around 14 (just pasta) to 40 (salad, pasta, and alcohol) a person for dinner.

I loved brio before I got celiacs and decided it was probably not an option anymore as restaurants aren’t usually good with cooking pasta separately, but, after I started working here I realized it is probably the safest Italian place to eat! They have an EXPANSIVE gluten free menu and almost all their pasta sauces are naturally gluten free (even cream sauces) and can be added even if not on the g free menu. They also cook the gluten free pasta separately and prepare your meal in a separate area of the kitchen. The managers are very knowledgeable and willing to help! I have had it a few times now and have not gotten sick.

I went to Brio for dinner last night. They provided me with a gluten free menu which I was excited about. I finally received my meal, took a bite and the manger came running over in a panic saying you were supposed to have GF right? Don’t eat that.... kinda to late I already had a bite. I was appreciative the manager came running over when they realized but I was disappointed the waiter was not trained properly on food allergies to the point where he ignored that I said Gluten free like 4 times when ordering, I even verified when the food came to the table... I’m really disappointed and will probably not go here again because of it.
