I am so very disappointed. A group of friends and I stopped in yesterday, for lunch. What a horrible experience. We all left frustrated. I had the Angus Burger. I ordered it medium, it came rare. My friend ordered the same except she

I've travelled all over North America and eaten at some of the finest restaurants ... this is a true find. The selection is varied with nightly specials and a creative chef. I've seldom had better food, this is a great restaurant that you

I only had a few minutes before my next meeting, but this was the perfect place to grab a quick lunch. The food was fantastic, the wait staff was friendly, although there could have been more of them... they were so busy, and the atmosphere was very fun. The decor is very rustic and slightly South American. I really enjoyed the homemade fries. I definitely plan on returning.

Pros: Great Food, Fun Atmosphere, Good Location

Cons: Slow Service

We were tourists in Springfield, and clearly it showed. After having a mediocre lunch here, we returned home several days later and found they had changed a 4 dollar tip to a 40 dollar one. This also resulted in 2 overdraft fees, which they refuse to pay! Basically, we spent 130 dollars for 2 forgettable sandwiches and a glass of iced tea.

Well, it might have been OK, but we didn't get a chance to eat. We got there at 10 minutes to 3:00PM today. A lunch was being served until 3, then they were to close and open back up for dinner at 5. Even though we got there before 3, the hostess/waitress said they stopped serving, "since it was 3." Guess they didn't need our business (or maybe she was off at 3), either way, we were turned away. The very next restaurant that we then went to, Galina's, we were welcomed, with a smile. Galina's has an excellent antipasta, fresh baked breads for sandwiches (meat ball is best), and great, great pizza. So thanks for nothing, Cafe Brio.

The worst experience ever in my life. I ordered a Chicken Cesar salad and they brought me a flat desert plate size with lettuce and tomatoes left over and I had to pay $9 for that.
I would close down this place and open a thrift store 'cause that's Springfield all about, lazy, ugly, weird peasants.
Don?t even think about going to that place! It?s very bad!

Justin Childs was the best server i ever came encounter with, he was very nice and pleasant with me and my family. He answered all of our questions we had about the place, he kept a smile everytime he came to our table. I've been to a lot of restaurants around the globe, and he is one of the greatest servers we ever had. Thanks for your service

Very pricey. Sub-standard food. Tiny portions. Ordered the steak tacos. Received 3 very small tacos along with a couple tablespoons of rice and beans. Steak was as tough and tasteless as shoe leather. Rice had no flavor at all. The only positive thing is there were only a few slivers of steak on each taco to have to get through. This lovely meal with one lemonade set me back $19.00 before tip. Biggest disappointment of my trip.

I liked Brio better when they didn't charge for the chips and salsa, but I still fork over the cash for the best homemade chips and salsa I've ever had. The eclectic Mexican-ish menu is full of fantastic items, such as their chimichangas and their blackened chicken salad. Yes, that sounds chain restaurant boring, but they do those dishes up great, and I'm just forgetting the more interesting ones. I moved to Chicago long ago and still call Brio my favorite restaurant.

Cons: Charging for chips and salsa now

I always have good food experiences at Brio. I would recommend lunch over dinner though, as dinner portions are not noticeably larger than lunch portions (it's the same menu at lunch and dinner) but prices are much higher at dinner. OVerall, the atmosphere is nice and kind of funky/hip. But the restaurant is quiet and groups or dates can easily converse. The menu includes blackened chicken salad and sandwiches, chicken tacos with black beans and rice, crab items, burgers, ... Typically something to fit each person's appetite as long as they do not require bland unseasoned foods. Brio packs lots of flavor into all of it's dishes and some can be a bit spicy (which I love)They have good strong margarita's but they're pricey as is the lemonade (fantastic but pricey). The restaurant is non-smoking which is nice. THere are high booths along the wstreet side of the restaurant so you can watch out the windows if you like to people watch.

Cafe Brio is a good place to go for lunch. The food is different and not for all - recipes border on the adventurous. (I recommend the black bean quesadilla.) However, expect to pay a bit more; it can be a little pricey, especially if you order a drink. Lunch service is par. Carry out is better. Still, the food is good and you get free chips and salsa when dining in.
