Bravas Bar de Tapas
Bravas serves traditional Spanish dishes along with tapas-style dining and has been named in the Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by the San Francisco Chronicle. Sit out on the covered patio any time of the year and enjoy a chilled Tapa of Salmorejo soup or tuna belly salad. Join a group of friends indoors at Bravas while dining on a warm Tapa of bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese, warm bacalao on wood grilled flatbread or the Pocket Creak Duck Egg served sunnyside up with Chorizo cracklings and toast. Other menu items include Monterey Calamari served with salsa verde, blackened lamb porterhouse or the skirt steak with red onion marmalade and Valdeón Cheese.
Bravas offers a large selection of local and Spanish wines, sangrias and Spain inspired cocktails that will not only quench your thirst but will complement your food perfectly and authentically.

Fried Potatoes, Spicy Tomato Sauce, Allioli

Birthday lunch, definitely not like the tapas you find in Spain/Barcelona but most certainly delicious. Might pass on the Iberico Jamon and the bread (more like bruschetta than the tomato bread that usually accompanies jamon). Octopus, roasted corn and mushrooms were all delicious, great cocktails.
Quick visit from FL to CA wine country. Recommended as a ‘must try’ by the vineyard we are staying. Did not disappoint. Great ambiance and outdoor setting. Great and attentive service from Taylor and team. Great food. Would recommend highly.
Food and drinks all delicious as usual. We go every time we’re in town. It’s impossible to have a bad experience.
Food not prepared well. Drinks were good!
We very much enjoyed our afternoon meal. The patio was lovely, and not too crowded. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the service was excellent. Mask protocol was followed. The food was excellent. We had the gazpacho (a favorite from our last visit) and also tried the tomato toast, steamed clams and grilled octopus. All were delicious, particularly the octopus, which I know can be tricky to prepare well. We shared a pitcher of the red sangria, which was the perfect accompaniment to the food. We will definitely be back.
First time here as we were passing through Healdsburg. Everything was great start to finish. We will definitely plan to go here again when we are in the area.
Fantastic food and excellent service. This place is amazing.
The food and service was incredible. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Our waiter didn’t touch our table for 20 minutes explaining he thought it was Frank’s table. One of my croquettes was cold in the middle. I couldn’t eat it.
Bravas is my favorite local go to restaurant. I often stop by solo when shopping in town or when I feel like a bowl of steamed clams with pan Olivio!! Staff is 100% amazing and attentive.
It appeared that lots of new servers were learning to care for the customers and mistakes concerning food and drink were made. Even the wrong bill was given to us. I enjoy Bravas and I am sure this will get better with more training and experience.
Interesting finds(fried pig ears), great atmosphere. I liked that they had half bottles of wine. Enjoyable experience.
Love love love this restaurant. Knowledgeable staff, fabulous menu and killer wines.
Amazing food, service and great vibe/ambiance and outdoors to boot!
We plan a stop here on our regular trips from Mendocino County. Love the vibe on the patio and outdoor bar. Relaxed, casual, fun, great food and great service. That’s what we are looking for in this new age of restaurant dining!
Terrific food. Will be back on a future visit to Healdsburg.
Excellent selection of food & wine. Attentive service and warm ambience. Thouroughly enjoyable experience
Great cocktails, a diverse menu of delicious tapas and small plates and attentive and helpful service.
Lots of confusion with the staff on getting us seated even though we had reservations and they didn’t seem to have a problem seating others. Food was fine but seemed to like a little spice and definitely salt. Scallops were the exception and seemed to be seasoned well. Outside patio has never atmosphere but overall I would skip it next time.
One of our favorite places in all of wine country.
Great food and drink options, nice setting and excellent service
Fantastic food! Very authentic Spanish tapas. Bartenders make cocktails to die for.
We had a great meal at Bravas and tried everything that we wanted, it is great fun to have plates coming one after another and to share with everyone at the table. The servers were very attentive and the drinks were perfect.
Outstanding experience. Food is fantastic, probably the best bar around.
Excellent choice for my birthday. Cauliflower with dares and almonds was fantastic!
Once again a great food experience. The paella is very good.
I brought some friends to Brava for lunch. We were seated outside, as requested, and loved the service and food! Thanks!
Great authentic meal.
Birthday lunch. Every tapas succeed our expectations
loved it and would go again! killer red sangria, very nice service
Delicious food and drinks! Really enjoyed the variety of menu items and pleasant service.
Nora gave us great service and food and drinks were amazing!
The food is fine. Not particularly traditional tapas nor particularly innovative. Service is spotty. Our food took forever to come, then arrived all in a pile, and the we were rushed out without a chance for dessert—mystifying because there were tons of open tables and we ha are w 30 min early and were seated early because our table was ready, so we should have been able to linger. Next time I am in Healdsburg, I won’t bother returning. There are too many other fantastic restaurants.
3rd time to Bravas and highly recommend it. Great selection of tasty tapas and even fried chicken was yummy. A must if visiting Healdsburg!
Overall a p
Amazing food and great atmosphere. Customer service was outstanding.
Bravos was great. We had a terrific table in their very beautiful outdoor space. We enjoyed the octopus, calamari, prawns, olives, garlic bread, gazpacho. I don’t think you can go wrong with any dining choice. Service was excellent.
