    I have been working at Brio Bravo Restaurant Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relatively good place to gain experience in a high volume casual fine dine restaurant environment. Previous restaurant experience preferred but not required. Plenty of latitude in the way of tableside styles or approaches.

    Cons

    Training is deficient with regard to practical server processes and techniques. Continuing education about the products available are virtually nonexistent. Work flow systems are inadequately designed and implemented making for a highly disorganized and chaotic environment. Quality of products are inconsistent and too often below guest expectations.

    Advice to Management

    A focus placed on the quality of food and service would go a long way. In particular a detailed look at the steps involved in the implementation of these to main areas with the goal of minimizing the most common problems associated with inadequate products and service. Emphasis on the training program is definitely much needed. With a great deal of latitude granted to the store level management it is imperative that said management have a strong ability to generate and implement standards of best practice while limiting the need for decisions to be made arbitrarily and with little consideration for the far reaching effects of those decisions. In other words it is preferable to avoid a fire than to put a fire out.
