Disappointed this time. Steak wasn’t good for the 2time we have chosen it. Service was ok. Our water glasses were empty for too long. We will give it another chance because we always enjoy a good bottle of wine with a great view and our past dinners have always been good but definitely different this time and for the cost of a dinner here......things should be close to perfect.

Really consistent. Have been eating here for years. The quality of the service and food prep remain wonderful.
The offerings have changed almost not at all for literally years. The specials have literally been the same for years. Why call them specials?
The sides, zucchini boat, pickled red cabbage, herb roasted potatoes also go on most all the entrees and have for years.
There are several things on the menu that I really like, so I can drive to Little Rock and eat here 2-3 times a year, but there are several other excellent restaurants where I can always count on being invited to a new flavor palate
.
I have loved this restaurant for years but it is getting tired.
Prices have jumped significantly in past couple of years.
Still offering primarily ice cream and chocolate creme brûlée’s year round too.

I think I’ll take a break for a year and see if something new might happen. In the meantime culinary adventure calls elsewhere.

We have eaten here a lot over the years. Great place for a nice lunch or dinner with a nice view. Parking can be a little tricky but worth it. All of the staff are always very nice. Warm bread served as soon as you are seated. Glasses kept full.

My wife & I always try to include Brave New in our plans when we travel thru Little Rock. BN has always been a great dining experience. The last visit included a nice table next to the river. Peter also stopped by our table and was very cordial and proud of his place, as he should be.

Great food, great experience. The Owner, Peter Grave actually mingled in the Dining area and talked with the patrons.
We’ll be back during the day to see the river view.

Avocado shrimp appetizer consistently good. Purple hull pea soup tasty. Mushroom Wellington beautiful. (Looked better than it tasted, I’m told.). We come to this restaurant whenever in Little Rock. Interesting location. Business park complex of sorts, but beautiful view of the river, especially in Spring, Summer and Fall when hummingbirds abound.~

I grew up in Little Rock and was so excited to revisit on of my favorite eateries. The chocolate creme brulee is legendary and is still perfection. Our server was a delight. Charming and knowledgeable. We sat next to the floor to ceiling windows with a gorgeous view of the Arkansas River. Just a wonderful lunch!

Peter Brave's restaurant never fails to please. The menu choices are always delicious and fresh. The wine selection is excellent. You just have to remember to save room for dessert; the chocolate creme brûlée is possibly the best in Little Rock.

We ventured out in the rain hoping for our certain tastes to be satisfied, as well they were. We went home with some fresh Brazilian Primevera coffee, roasted that day as Peter Brave expertly directs. It made for a nice morning dessert.

My husband found this restaurant for me to visit on a recent business trip... what a find! The food was delicious and beautifully presented/prepared. The staff was knowledgeable and provided just the right balance of attention. The owner came by to check on my meal, which is always a nice touch. Would recommend Brave to anyone visiting Little Rock or for those fortunate enough to have this gem in your backyard!

I found this little gem online to go for dinner before the theatre. The reviews were good so I decided to try it. We were first impressed by the ambiance and view. The service was great and the food... oh my goodness! The food was delicious and plenty of it. We loved the healthy creative menu options and were very pleased with our selections. For the ambiance, view, service and cuisine, Brave New Restaurant is a great value. Overall, the best restaurant I’ve been to in the Central United States. Thank you Mr. Brave.
