The restaurant has a nice look and style. Also, it's got enough room and space to not feel crowded even when it is.

Best time to visit
BRIO Tuscan Grille is a higher end Italian restaurant. There are two locations in the Dallas area and 37 overall in 17 states. The restaurant has a large and semi-partitioned dining room, a full-sized bar, a terrace with outdoor seating and an open kitchen. The main dishes include pastas, steaks and salads.
BRIO opened in 2009 and is located in the Watters Creek shopping center next to Interstate 75. It’s a fancier retail center and includes other restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory and P.F. Chang’s. BRIO’s décor and layout is tasteful. The dining room has a swank feel, with hardwood floors and marble accents. There is enough space around the tables and bar to provide some elbow room. Paper covers the tablecloths, which is a bit tacky. Overall, facilities are a point of distinction.
While the infrastructure makes the grade, the food failed to pass muster. The highlights of the brunch were a mushroom soup and a caprese salad. The soup was light and well seasoned and the caprese salad tomatoes and cheese blended well together from a taste and texture perspective. The field greens on the caprese salad though were drenched with a vinaigrette sauce. For a brunch to be high quality the omelet needs to be smoking and this one was definitely lukewarm, both literally and figuratively. Bland vegetables and some eggs accented with unsavory cheese were a poor combination that proved unappetizing. As for dessert, an apple turnover slice was excessively small and tasted somewhat stale. The ice-cream was not bad though. BRIO gets crowded on weekends and during prom season. Reservations are accepted but after this experience, a return visit is unlikely anytime soon. Another negative was that the restaurant added a sizable 20% tip to the bills for a group of 10 people.

Mushroom soup: Yummy, not the best; felt satisfied in my craving; very savory, the way mushroom soups should be; consistency almost perfect; could be a bit thicker for my taste; wish the mushrooms were bigger-too finely chopped; bold initial taste but died down; nice balance of cream to mushroom.
