Bravas Bar de Tapas
WowTop tier on all levels. Exciting plates and a great wine list with lots of locals. Attentive service with a sense of humor too. And three of us ate for what a great restaurant would often charge for two!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the driveVisiting Sonoma from the east bay we decided to cancel our 1st dining choice and drive 35 miles to check out Bravas Bar de Tapas instead. It was so worth the trip. I had read the reviews and couldn't have been more impressed. Don't expect to find paella on the menu, trust me you'll be satisfied without it. The peppers and chorizo where excellent as well as the cheese platter, jamon ibedico with toast, chicken croquettes, quail and octopus were superb. All very well presented in there own cup, bowl or on a platter. Great outside bar....very clean and cool decor. I loved the dish towel napkins and the use of the sardine can lid at the end of our meal. Great wine selection as well.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat selection of tapas withGreat selection of tapas with wait staff eager to provide suggestions. Some traditional and some adventurous selections. Lovely outdoor patio. Service was great. Only complaint is being served wine in a whisky tumbler (very strange for the center of the Sonoma wine district).4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group of six andWe had a group of six and ordered a wide variet of tapas items and all were excellent. The sardines and octopus were the best - perfectly prepared and the octopus was very tender.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food for sharing.Excellent food for sharing. We were outside and it was chilly even with heaters. Our table was on the side, so the sun shone in and made it hard to see until it went down. Inside might have been better.
Definately a place for small groups, tho the adjacent one was very noisy4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love all of the Stark'sWe love all of the Stark's restaurants, so we were anxious to try Bravas. We were not disappointed. We dined with an experienced Tapas diner who was able to help us navigate the menu. The food ans wine were wonderful and we will definitely be back!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Find In HealdsburgThe service and ambiance at Bravas Bar de Tapas was wonderful. The menu was fun, unique and interesting and the food did not disappoint. Some personal recommendations would be the creamy chicken croquetas - perfectly fried and full of flavor, fried duck egg (unique dish) and the cider braised chorizo (fabulous!). Definite must try in Sonoma County.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this place! The food,Loved this place! The food, wine, and service were fantastic!
