We had dinner here last night. They have a gluten free menu. At first, we were concerned at the server’s casual attitude. However, my gluten free pasta and wedge salad were fantastic. Then, our server brought us a Creme Brulee (the only gf dessert on the menu) on the house. I felt fine after and today as well. Highly recommend Brio.

Great gluten free dining experience! I loved eating here! Ate here twice so far. They have a gluten free menu. The first time I tried the gluten free pasta. The pasta had a great consistency and the sauce was very flavorful and delicious. The second visit I had the grilled salmon salad. The salmon was grilled on a wood smoke grill which gave it a wonderful flavor and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The salad was the freshest salad I have had at a restaurant in ages. The balsamic dressing was perfect with the salad and I enjoyed my meal so much. I was with two other people, one ordered angel hair pasta with chicken and raved about how flavorful it was. The other had the regular version of the salmon salad (which came with some crispy cracker-like strips so be sure to order the gluten free version if you get the salad) and she loved it also. I want to mention the ambiance. It was bright, roomy, relaxing and nicely decorated. It reminded me of being at a Disney resort (which is a great thing for me). I will definitely be going back soon! They have one gluten free dessert, Creme Brûlée, which was very creamy and delicious.

Separate GFree menu has somewhat limited selections. GFree pasta was more chewy than expected. Full bar. Ok for a chain but not anything special. Staff aware is a plus.

Nice chain restaurant that does have a separate gluten free menu. Not extensive, but enough to give you a choice. There are items on regular menu that can be modified as well.

I had the GF pasta carbonara and thought it was really good. I did not get sick and I have celiac disease

Enjoyed my pasta here, was clearly gluten free noodles when compared to others at my table which made me feel safe. I don’t know if separate area is used for prep but I had not negative reaction.

The menu was small but sufficient. I can not eat sea food, taking at least half of the menu out, so the choices were limited. I wasn't that impressed for the cost. But, I didn't get sick, which is always great. My meal arrived correctly, without issues (on a busy Saturday evening) and my waiter knew exactly what to expect with my questions.

While Brio has. GF menu, they seem not to understand the concept. I was there on a not-so-busy Wednesday night. I asked for the GF menu and explained to the waiter I was celiac. I asked if there was a separate prep area and if gloves were changed. He looked at me as if I was speaking Klingon. He had no idea. And his reassurance of "If I mark it gluten free, it'll be fine" was really not assuring. Once my salmon salad came out, it had fried potato strings on it. I asked if those were prepared in a GF fryer and they were not. So, I had to wait another 25 minutes for my salad. Luckily, I did not get sick, but I have no confidence in this restaurant.

They have a GF menu with GF options (salads, chicken, steak, fish, pasta). The pasta dishes are just ok and very pricey for what you get ($19). There wasn't much chicken in either of our pastas, and the sauces were excessively salty. The waiter was simply mediocre, rushing us through our meal. It's nice to have this option, but it's expensive chain restaurant food. Disappointing.

There was a fairly long gluten free menu. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful. It was also reasonably priced which is nice.

Terrible gf options. Always get sick cross contamination constantly. I don't feel like anyone cares about medical issues at this particular Brio.

Gf options but I have a secondary food allergy that was also acknowledged by the server and then ignored by the kitchen - the item showed up on my plate. Manager and server were very apologetic and remade the dish but imo if one allergy warning is missed it may not be safe to order expecting gf here either.

Gluten free menu (available online) I have tried the gluten free pasta carbonara, grilled salmon and chocolate mousse for dessert! All were super delicious!

They handed me a gluten free menu, but after ordering a chicken dish from this menu I got very sick. Won't chance it by returning.

Had a really delicious lobster tail risotto here, the wait staff chatted with me extensively about how they would accommodate me (celiacs) and made me feel really comfortable and confident that I was eating safely. I'm fairly sensitive and had no issues whatsoever after the meal!

I've been here a couple of times. The salads were fine, but I wouldn't trust the GF pasta. Maybe the kitchen just didn't take care, but life was not pleasant afterwards.

Disappointing. Ordered gluten free pasta and asked if it would be separate. My food arrived with regular pasta mixed in! Avoid

Recently diagnosed with a severe gluten and wheat allergy. I was finally feeling better and ate from their gluten free menu, was severely sick! Diarrhea within hours, stomach pain and bloating and skin rash later that night! Very disappointed but the good was delicious.

Our server was amazing and considerate, which is not always the case when your eating in a restaurant that automatically brings complimentary bread to the table :) I was pleased with the number of options on the GF menu; even includes dessert!

They have a GF symbol next to all gluten-free menu items. I ordered their gluten- free pasta which tasted great, but made me extremely sick afterwards. Do not recommend to anyone with Celiac Disease.

Best GF pasta in a restaurant. Excellent food, service. Good prices. Not oversized portions. Frequently have flour-less chocolate cake on the dessert tray. Update - no separate GF menu anymore. Fewer GF dishes and hard to find. Downgrading to 4 stars.

They did have a celiac menu although limited. Remains to be seen if cross contamination becomes an issue.

The food was cold on top and hot on bottom, like it was microwaved. The food had no flavor and the salmon and pasta were both over cooked. They did have a gluten menu but all the food we ate was awful.

Gluten free menu. Grilled Salmon, roasted veggies, and mashed potatoes was very good. The lady who took my order understood my needs as she said she had a close relative with Celiac. Very nice and understanding staff member.

I've eaten here three times since I found out about their gluten free menu.. 2 times with no issues, 1 time where I found a stray gluteny noodle mixed in with my gluten free pasta. I hate to ban Brio if it was just a one time mistake, but they need to be cautious about cross-contamination in their kitchen. I'd suggest getting something other than the pasta to be extra safe

Small Gluten free menu, but the food is very tasty. I had grilled Salmon, roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes. They offer the same dish with chicken. I saw 3 gluten free pastas and 3 salads on the menu as well. I wanted to update this review because I've been to Brio multiple times since & have not had any problems with food. I consider them as one of my "go to" safe restaurants.

They have a dedicated GF menu but do recommend that you shouldn't eat there if you have celiac because of the shared kitchen. I had a pasta from the GF menu with red pepper sauce, chicken and mushrooms, it was lovely.

Their GF pasta is good and doesn't make me sick, however I had the worst experience of having my waitress bring out my salad and pasta in gluten form. I would've been sick as a dog if my GF buddy hadn't of stopped me. Their noodles have to be a certain shape to be gluten free. She then asked if I was just "on one of those new diets" and if I could "just eat it anyways". I'm 5'9 and 130 pounds, no I don't need to diet. I need better costumer service! We had her bring the manager. I still go there now, but I'm always more cautious.

Called to make a res and they informed me they are "gluten friendly" but not gluten free. Straight up advised me not to eat there if I have celiac. I appreciated their honesty!

We got off to a poor start when, after I asked for their gf menu, the waitress returned without it and asked us if we were ready to order. The menu does caution that this is not a dedicated gf kitchen. That said, there were I believe three salads, three pasta dishes, two chicken dishes, a salmon dish, and creme brûlée on the gf menu. I chose a pasta, which for gf was quite good.

After a terrible attempt at The Cheesecake Factory across the street (even their salads aren't GF! And the staff was clueless), I walked into Brio with tears streaming down my face, figuring that an Italian restaurant would be the very last place I'd be able to find something to eat. Boy was I wrong! Not only did they have a dedicated GF menu, the manager quickly recognized my hunger-induced panic and did an amazing job at helping me choose something to eat and personally ensured that it would be prepared GF. My experience here made my whole day. I would highly recommend.

The manager Jeff is awesome. Chef always takes care of you. They can make you a good gluten free pasta or alter the meals to be gluten free. Even when I go here for a mixer on the patio they treat me well.

Great pasta! The Alfredo is not gf and they mix it with the bolognese so ask for plain bolognese - which is delicious.
