This was our first time at Brave New Restaurant. My wife and I were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful experience. Our server Lindsey was very professional and energetic and took great care of us. Head Chef/Owner, Peter Brave, was out making the rounds and checking on guests, which I always like to see. He checked in on us and we got to chat with him about how long he's had the restaurant...29 years! The food was excellent. My wife got the salmon and I got the duck. The portions are a good size too. We got the chocolate creme brulee and a scoop of the "White Russian" ice-cream. The ice-creams are made in house and are phenomenal! My only "complaint" is that the location is a bit weird; it's in an office building. We sat on the patio which was kind of nice having a view of the Arkansas River and the skyline of downtown Little Rock but I still wish it was in a better location. Oh well, Chef Peter Brave knows what he is doing and he is doing it very well! I recommend you check it out.

Our wait staff was most attentive and a delight to speak with. The food was fresh and very flavorful. Our wine was a new one for us but we made a great choice with the help of our server. The venue was also perfect. Everything was perfect!

Brave New is one our favorite date-night spots in LR. With all the flooding in the LR area we wanted to be sure they were OK. We sat out on the deck and it was like overlooking a lake. The river came right up to the deck! As usual, the service was prompt and efficient and the meal was scrumptious. My wife and I shared the brie (which came with crackers, grapes and walnuts ) and the pine-nut encrusted salmon. We each had a dinner salad which were both great. The entree was divine and more than we both could eat. It was moderately busy on a Wed night. Try it, you'll like it!

Lovely date night on the patio outside. Our waiter forgot a few times when we had ordered a drink and we would have to remind him. Food was absolutely amazing but took a while to prepare. Well worth the wait though. First time here and will come back again!

Service started a little slow. We were beginning to question if we had a server when the tables around us were getting bread and drinks and we were there before them and still not served. But after our server finally came to us, everything turned out excellent. The food is always perfection. Can’t beat the view. Perfect date night.

This is one of our two favorites in Little Rock and always our first choice for my partner's birthday dinner. It must be a favorite with a great many others as the two tables nearest us were also celebrating birthdays! Always good food in a lovely atmosphere. Be sure to ask for an outside table if the weather allows.

My salad had a very salty dressing (side salad) which I chose not to eat because of my diet restrictions. Perhaps I should have asked- but I’ve dined here 25 times or more in last few year and never experienced salt overload.

Brave New Restaurant is my go-to eatery for out-of-town visitors or guests who haven't been there yet, and they are always favorably impressed. The bread is great, the walleye wonderful, other entrees just as well prepared and attractively presented, I like the fact that the salad is included in the price of the entree, and the chocolate creme brulee is to die for! A good wine list and impeccable service round out the picture. In warm weather you can sit outside on the balcony and watch the hummingbirds and other feathered friends—once we saw a bald eagle swoop down on the river, catch a fish, and eat it sitting on the sandbar right in front of us. Five stars!

While visiting Little Rock we enjoyed an exemplary dinner at Brave New Restaurant. Appetizers, salads, entrees, desert & beverages were delicious and presented beautifully. Our server answered all questions well and offered insight about each course. Dining riverside was lovely despite rainy weather. If you live in Little Rock area or travel through, don’t miss the opportunity to dine here.
