About

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.

We'd read great things in the SF Chronicle review, and it more that met our hopes! The back patio is lovely and it felt both relaxed and "happening". Especially loved the gazpacho, Duncan's mushrooms, escalivada and tuna belly salad.

We always love Bravas when we visit Healdsburg. The outdoor setting is wonderful, the food fantastics, the wine list is well chosen and reasonable, and the staff are knowledgable, friendly and fun.

It was a pretty good restaurant but we should have sat outside! And somehow we ordered wrong! So we will have to back and give it another try!

Very fun place to have dinner. We had a group of 8 and sat on the patio (which I would recommend, weather permitting). Lots of different plates to share. Paella was awesome.

We were there June 3 for a friend's wedding and decided to have dinner here. Now, yes there was a heat wave going on for this time of the year- but that is the standard average temp for July, Aug & Sept. It was about 95* outside and about 80-85* inside the restaurant. I made the mistake of ordering a glass of red wine- it was served at ~80*... in wine country they should know better. I switch to a cocktail next. Girlfriend was smart and stuck to the Cava Sangria. Food was good, but not amazing. Fried chicken with the garlic toast was the best dish. Some dishes were slightly over salted. The pig cheeks were not braised enough tonight. The heat really ruined the dinner- making me more judgmental. Again, a month later and that is the standard temp for the area. So really a shame that they can't keep the restaurant at a decent temp. And wine should never be served way over room temp. I couldn't recommend this place in the late spring through early fall... seriously it was that bad. Service was good, friendly and pretty attentive- a couple times we were with out water, but it wasn't long. But we were downing water like we were in the Sahara. Pace of the meal was good too. I would give them another shot, but never in the summer.

We came to Bravas when they were only a year or so old and it had the ambiance then and the great wait staff, but their food was hit or miss. We came again last year and it was much improved, except for a loud music speaker issue. We came this time with two dear friends and were treated very well, lovely table (no speaker in our ears as we had experienced last time, hard to hear the conversation), your Albariño was perfect with all the luscious food we ate. We'll be back!!!

We ate here over Memorial weekend when the restaurant was bustling. Most of the dishes we ordered were delicious - particularly the calamares, prawns, and chicken thighs. I was less sure about the mustard pork riblets and the patatas bravas were either way overcooked or were not cooked fresh. Service was patchy - we waited a while to order (drinks or food) and it was difficult to get our server's attention when we wanted to order dessert and digestifs. But then it was one of the busiest weekends and we were in no major rush.
