Wow, great food
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!!
As always, the food was marvelous and the service was friendly yet not intrusive. Great experience.
What a great find in Healdsburg! Great food, ambiance, and tasty cocktails!
Awesome food and service Franklin was terrific
Other than Barcelona, best tapas ever!
Wonderful service, intriguing menu choices and relaxing patio filled with happy diners and a few happy, well-behaved dogs.
Can't wait to visit again, and our waiter was beyond accommodating!
My favorite place to eat when in Wine Country. Excellent and interesting food.
Great tapas. Good variety with traditional Spanish and unusual items excellently prepared, seasoned and presented using fresh local ingredients creatively. Something for every palate. Excellent service and attention to detail. Affordably priced. Highly recommend.
I enjoyed the new food items
our server was gracious and welcomed us with a smile
most people had masks
I did not enjoy having dogs near the table
I liked the dungeness crab and peppers the best!
Very fresh and flavorful food! Everyone was so kind and accommodating! Such a cute and cozy layout, but also spacious. I look forward to coming back!
LOVED IT AND WILL BE BACK!!!
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.
The food was AMAZING! Love love love true tapas. Wine was great, and our server was amazing, kind and super helpful.
Great grilled Serrano ham sandwich and cheese with truffle paste
I ate here about 4 years ago and loved it.
Now, back in the region, I had to go back.
Everything was lovely.
Delicious food and environment. Such a great place to celebrate a birthday. Thank you.
Worth the money, portions were generous for a tapas place. The cocktails were great as well!
Love the patio at Bravas. Great atmosphere and food.
Always a fun place to sit outside and enjoy good food and drinks. Backyard setting feels not too hectic even in midst of town.
Loved the food
Thank you for Bravas for attentive staff, yummy food, and casual dining al fresco!
Incredible tapas- took us right back to Spain and our server was so kind.
Service was very nice. Food was great.
Excellent food and wonderful menu that covers all of my favorites that I get when I’m visiting Spain.
Birthday lunch to one of my favorites. Everything was delicious. Bacalo cigarillos fantastic. Pigs Ears are a must.
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.
Quick, friendly service and very well prepared food. The baccala is the best version of the salt cod dish ever!
My husband I enjoyed lunch snd dinner at Bravas. Such a pleasure to share small plates and then finish off with soft serve sundae. Brilliant concept and comfortable ambience. Cocktails are creative, too. Bravo, Bravas!
Love love love this place. The best Tapas in a hundred miles.
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.
Fantastic Service, Food and Choices! Definitely a must visit every time in Healdsburg. Corina our server very helpful as to what to order, table was always neat and plates picked up after each serving of tapas finished.
Charred Octopus, Paella, Mushrooms, Pig Ears, Family Style coffee crusted Tomahawk
Waitperson was incredible! Suggestions on point. Food was simply delicious. Every dish!!!! Will come back!
We love this place and the food was great but we felt a bit rushed. I know things are bit strange right now so not a big deal. Still love it though and will definitely be back.
A great place for a touch of Spain from the Catalonia region, casual dinning great food
