We have enjoyed Brave New Restaurant for about 17 years!! I try several menu options but my husband thinks about others but always comes back to the Mixed Grill. The owner, Peter Brave, is very personable and definitely wants to please.
One of the BEST in restaurants in Little Rock. Also consistently fantastic!!!
This place is awesome. It's a little pricey, but the food was worth it.
Staff were friendly, courteous, suggestive, informative, and attentive. Cuisine was delicious and done very elegantly! Very romantic and definitely worth a special occasion visit! Loved it and will be going back for sure!
Outstanding as always. Peter Brave is one of the World’s best Chef’s, and he continues to prove it. He also has a great Staff, Jeff is awesome.
Me and my wife went here for our date night and it was phenomenal! The waiter was extremely nice and helpful. The food was very delicious. I order the avocado shrimp appetizer and trout with crab meat; the combination of different flavors made you appreciate the dish even more. Can’t wait to go back.
Awesome as usual!
Excellent experience. Food is imaginative and well prepared. Service was seamless, professional and friendly. House roasted coffee was a special treat and expertly done. Unpretentious atmosphere. Would have loved to have a seat by the river but I didn’t request that in advance. Overall an enjoyable experience.
This was our first time at Brave New and we really liked it. The food and service were great. I’m sure we will visit again soon.
We love Brave New Restaurant, and are always blown away by the freshness of the ingredients, and the dessert is always the best in town! Our Valentine dessert was amazing!!!
The food was good, the wait service was good, but it was so noisy.
The biggest positive was that the staff was very friendly. However, service was a little slow. The food was alright, but not worth the price. Overall, it wasn’t a bad experience, but also not a good one. Unfortunately, doubt we come back for another try.
My only complaint: Although I made reservations for two almost six weeks in advance, there was no table when we arrived.
It felt like we were eating dinner in a footpath. We literally had people leaning against our chairs and table as they were waiting for their table! When we complained to the manager he treated us very disrespectfully. Two courses were brought to us with food items we told the waiter we could not eat. After we pointed this out to him he told us to just avoid eating them and made no offer to replate! Dirty dishes were not cleared. The scallops were not properly cleaned and still contained bits of sand and grit. I know we were there on a busy night but this service was inexcusable.
Overall, great meal. Everything about our meal was great.
I had the best salmon I think I've ever had followed by excellent cheesecake it was chocolate chip. The meal was served with red cabbage and red potatoes and it was delicious. The wife had pork tenderloin and it melted in her mouth. Lindsay was a great server!!!
Great loved everything , Ben has been our server both times we have been there , great , Peter you so personable loved the experience. Peace out
This was our 2nd visit. Both times were very good. We plan to go in the future when we are in Little Rock.
Even thought we are a blue collar working class family that can afford to eat at a place like this. I will admit that we kinda felt a little out of place by some of the patrons there. That will not prevent me from going again because I don't care what people think and the food was amazing. Keep up the good work from the servers to the food. Loved the whole experience.
Disappointing. A dog was in the dining room for about 30 seconds, I know that's not long... but still not appropriate for a restaurant claiming to be "casual fine dining".( I also love dogs, I have 3.... but this is a restaurant). Chef came by asking about our food and I politely said it was too cool for my tastes and he said it was chef's preference.
I understand chef's preferences for temperatures, but cool food tagged with $140 bill is not okay.
I also had a reservation and we were put in overflow seating next to a large business group.
Service was great and fast, but all in all the food and ambience was severely disappointing.
Always a great experience at Brave New!
We had a wonderful evening celebrating my mothers 89th birthday. The scallops were absolutely perfect and the steak was also. Our waiter pampered my mom and made her evening special.
Very nice we enjoyed our dinner. All 4 of us were pleased with our order. Our server was very good.
Wonderful food and friendly service! We will be back for more!
Incredible meal. Truly great coffee. Disappointing cosmopolitan out of the bar.
Brave New is one of my favorite restaurants but I wish the menu was more creative. It seems like the last few times we have been there the entrees and side dishes have been exactly the same with not a lot of flavor.
The food and the service was excellent. Our server explained all of the specials and was able to answer all of our questions about menu items. I had the Salmon which was the best I have had, it was perfect.
Only reason why I gave 4 stars on value was the price, but given the food and service I will still come back.
Dining at this restaurant was a pleasant surprise and experience. The food was prepared well and very delicious.
A hidden treasure. You'd never expect from the outside what you find inside. Amazing food, excellent service. Can't wait to go back
The service was impeccable. The food was, Eh. Maybe it's the building, maybe it's the way the dining room is set up, but the restaurant just lacks something.
