Very good! 9/23/2008

When Brio 89 first opened, some friends and I went in to check it out. We were promptly greeted and went to the bar. The first thing we noticed was how nice the staff was and how excited they all seemed to be. After looking at an extensive wine list, the bartender offered to pour us a few samples. We sat at a table soon after and had a great meal. We all ordered pasta dishes and they were really good. The desserts were also fantastic- I recommend their chocolate cake. If you are looking for a friendly, warm environment with great comfort food, I highly recommend this place! more

Delectable Cuisine 5/29/2008

What a wonderful place! The food is out of this world! I ordered the sirloin steak with the shoestring fries and it was delicious... perfect! My friend ordered the two side dishes which was the polenta (unbelievable!) and the sauteed mushrooms and zucchini! Of course we ended up sharing everything and left satisfied. more

Just like Mama's 4/23/2008

I am a very picky eater, so when I saw Gnocchi on the menu - I had to try it. What a wonderful surprise - it tasted like what my mother use to make... The Gnoochi just melted in your mouth!! The portion was just the right amount too and they didn't smother it in sauce like some other places. Very nice place too, not overly decorated. Pros: Food, Service, Atmosphere more

Fantastic Specials!! 4/23/2008

I had a fantastic special the other night. The dish was with grilled chicken, eggplant, cherry tomatoes and arugula and what a treat it was!! Cooked just right and what a mix of flavor for the taste buds!! Will go back to enjoy the food and see what other specials they will delight us with! Pros: Food and Ambience more

Great place to dine in 4/18/2008

The ambience is great and so is the food. The wine list is amazing. I went there the other day and saw that the food was beautifully served. The amount of garlic that is put in the food is just the right amount. Pros: Food Cons: not much more

Hmmmmmmmmm 4/15/2008

What a great winebar! So many wines to chose from and the menu has many delights to indulge your tastebuds - the veal meatballs are delicious and the gnocchi was so filling. more

what a find 4/15/2008

walking down 2nd avenue found this really nice place... it was a bit crowded but we were able to get two seats at the bar... the bartendar was very helpful... we ordered a lot of the appetizers - two of our favorites was the rosemary goat cheese and the cured prosciutto... there is so much wine to chose from we will have to go back again and again and again.... more

Martini Delight 4/14/2008

What a cool place - the decor is warm and inviting. The hostess was very nice and our waiter was very attentive. The food was good ~ and the pomegranate martini was to die for... very affordable too. Parking can be sticky but you'll find a spot... Pros: Service, Food, Drinks more

Quality Stuff 4/14/2008

I'm new to the area and popped in to this place and am glad I did. Great service! Food was good and the bartendar was very attentive. The prices are reasonable too for quality food. Will definitely be going back. more

Wine Lovers Delight 4/14/2008

Exceptional place! Exactly what the UES needed. Food was great and came out fast! There is a large selection of wines to chose from too. Only problem is it gets crowded fast, but is worth the wait. Pros: Great Service Cons: Can Get Crowded Fast more

Unexperienced 4/12/2008

I went there for dinner a coupple of weeks ago and decided to give it another try, since the first time I thought it was a joke that such a young, unexperienced guy would be in charge of the whole place... This time was even worse. I've worked in the wine industry for over 30 years and was very excited they opened a new wine bar in the upper east side.. the wine list was quite remarkable, but like the first time I was there, the manager came to our table suggesting some wine that had nothing to do with what we were eating and after I asked him a coupple of questions about the wines on the list, I realized that he had absolutely no idea! No knoweledge once so ever about it and kept trying to fool us making up riciculous stuff about wines! That really did it for me, never going back there! Pros: wine list Cons: manager lack of knoweledge more

Terrible Service 4/4/2008

I stopped in for a drink after work and was excited by the decor. I thought just what the UES needs. Loved the tasty fried squash they serve with your drink. But I was never asked if I would like another drink nor could I get the bartender to acknowledge us. The manager was running around talking to his staff about personal issues instead of paying attention to the clients. Finally after 20 minutes my boyfriend got the bartenders attention and we got the check. more

Great Date Place 3/24/2008

Dining room is simply chic and has an intimate feel. The music tends to be a bit loud though. The food was exceptional and the prices are reasonable. A lot of wine to choose from but they also make great mixed drinks - the apple martini is a good choice. Pros: Food, Drinks Cons: Parking more

Nice New Place 3/11/2008

Just what the UES needed! This place is truly a nice change of pace. It is classy and chic and the selection of wine is superb. Went there with friends and we all shared something from the menu. We loved the crostino with goat cheese, the combination meat and cheese dish and the rice dish stuffed with cheese. Service was great and it's very reasonable on the wallet! Will definitely be going back. more

Worth the Trip 3/10/2008

Great place for a relaxing evening with friends. The atomosphere is calm and the place is very chic. You don't spend a fortune here like in some other places and the food is exceptional! I especially loved the calamari and zucchini dish and the sedona salad. Also, there is an array of wines for wine lovers! Pros: Wine, Food, Service etc. etc. more

Nice restaurent, terrible food 3/6/2008

Went there recently for a friend's 30th birthday. The service was good but the food was shite. The chicken and pork dishes were completely overcooked and dry. The linguini was terrible as well. None of us were satisfied with our meal. They also brought out a little chocolate soufle for my buddy's birthday, but then charged us for it...thought that was kinda cheap considering the bill was close to $500. more

for the love of cheese 3/3/2008

if it werent for the lovely cheeses offered here I would never return. the service (now 2 times) has been horrible. we sat down last night as one of two parties in the whole place and were not introduced to waiter until we sat 20 minutes. 3 of 4 wines we asked for were not available. finally, after a good meal, we sat for another 20 minutes for waiter to bring check. all in all 2 bad experiences with the service but again, great food. if you arent in a rush- perfect cheese and vino spot. nice decor, too- just too sloww for us. (totalling 2.5 hours) Pros: cheese Cons: service more
