Other menu items include Monterey Calamari served with salsa verde, blackened lamb porterhouse or the skirt steak with red onion marmalade and Valdeón Cheese.

My husband and I went to Bravas Bar to celebrate his Birthday. This was our 4th time at the restaurant. As usual, the food and service was excellent. No complaints whatsoever.

What an amazing lunch with friends from out of town! Every tapa ordered was excellent! We had Iberico Jabon, papas, both delicious breads that were offered, olives, eggplant chips with honey, skirt steak, chicken thighs with tapenade, Piccadillo peppers with crab, chicken croquettes, and finally dessert was chocolate mousse and hot rum balls. Nice selection of wines and expresso coffee ! Great service, plenty of water and an exceptional day outdoors!! Thank you for a delightful time!!

The tapas were mostly so-so. The only tapa that stood out was the crispy pork ears, which we ordered a second time. The boquerones were decent. Everything else, including the octopus was underwhelming in flavor.

Not sure if it's Covid related, but ambiance was lacking. Service was fine until our waiter brought something to us we did not order. She tried to convince us that we did and after we graciously declined that plate we did not order, she totally disappeared on us. Food presentation was not anything significant either. Quality of food was good, no concerns there, it's just that I guess I was expecting a different type of experience from this place comparing to how tapas places are done in Europe. In my book, this place is overrated for what it offers and how it operates.

Fantastic to be back and able to eat at Bravas. We were in the back porch. Open air seating. Enough distance to feel safe. Great food as always. New cocktails. Golden Snitch was great. White sangria yummy. The potatoes lamb burgers and skirt steak were amazing.

Excellent food, sometimes very surprising flavors.
Sitting outside and being served this spectacular food was such a pleasure after a year of hiding from the virus. Tables were far apart, everyone wore masks. It felt very safe and pleasant.

We have enjoyed eating at Bravas in the past - pre covid. The back patio is lovely and has a fun and festive feel to it. This time the experience was lacking. The person seating us through our menus on a chair and mumbled something about water. The wait staff while originally attentive, did not follow our orders in the kitchen and one of the first things we ordered did not come out. We kept seeing people who sat down after us getting their food. Finally, we asked about it and cancelled it because we were done with our meal. Then, the wait staff returned with our check and the order in a take out box saying the Chef wanted us to have the dish. Since we were leaving, we tasted the dish and then left it. Seemed like a waste of product. Our potatas order had a bad piece of potato in it. Overall just not as positive an experience as we have had in the past.
