BNR consistently serves outstanding food, often combining different flavors I would never have thought of being served together. I always look forward to dining there, especially for lunch.

Been going to Brave New for probably 15 years. This was the worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had in my life. Waiter was sarcastic, rude and argumentative. Asked to speak to manager. To my dismay, he was even worse. Basically called me and my date a liar. So embarrassing. Extremely disappointed. Can’t believe Peter (Brave) would tolerate this behavior. A heart breaker.

The food and service was excelent. Our bilingual waiter from Mexico city was very helpful and gracious.

From time to time we invite young people to join us for dinner as part of our mission to provide not only scholarships but personal development. Chef Peter Brave came to our table and made our experience even more meaningful.

Scallops were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Not rubbery or undone. A pleasure for sure. Husband was happy with his trout. Appetizer was heirloom tomatoes with balsamic, olive oil with a side of corn Salas. Very flavorful. We had no room for dessert! I was so full I forgot to buy a bag of coffee beans. Nice touch the Peter Brave comes around To chat with guests. We sat outside on the balcony over looking the river. Watched ducks and geese, hummingbirds and Chefeter play frisbee with his dog.

We always get the tomato salad and the smoked fish. Sometimes the shrimp and avocado or the mushroom tart. You can make a meal of the appetizers! We sometimes get the lobster salad and the duck plate. They are all consistently good. The setting is off the chart and we love the people there and the people we run into. The view of the river is unique in Little Rock. Sit outside if you can.

We have been to Brave New many times with Little Rock friends over the years. We were in town for business and brought colleagues. We are all in the restaurant business. The owner of one of our businesses voiced surprise at the crowd sans a store front. This is why i brought him. We ordered every appetizer. The table hummed and passed plates. So happy to have fresh tomatoes!!!!! Steak, fish, the potatoes and several visits from Chef Brave and his assistant, the beautiful puppy made for a lovely evening. Peach ice cream made my head spin. Eating is a chore. Our Brave New night made dining a delight.

We enjoyed dining at Brave New Restaurant on our 27th anniversary. The food was delicious. The waiter was very attentive, and the owner even checked in with us a couple of times to make sure everything was perfect. The outdoor seating by the river was really nice and peaceful.

Another outstanding dinner at Brave! My wife and I started with heirloom tomato and cheese appetizer and added one each scallop to complete our amazing appetizer selection. There were 5 very distinctly individual tomatoes and it was put together as a most incredible delight to the eyes as well as the taste buds. My wife had the salmon and I had the pork loin and they were both fabulously seasoned and cooked. We topped it off with some fresh strawberry sorbet and some of Peter's excellent fresh roasted and ground coffee. Truly and wonderful meal!

This was the first time my wife and I had eaten here. We’re fairly new to Little Rock and had heard great things about this place. It did not disappoint. The chocolate creme brûlée is worth the trip alone. Steaks were amazing. The chef was interacting with the diners. Great experience!

Really had a good time. The waiter was name "Jack" and he was very informative and accommodating.
The food was excellent. The owner came out and greeted us, which I thought was very nice.
We hadn't been in a while and decided to come back.
We will be back again with our friends because they deserve the "Brave New Restaurant."

Other than having a dog running around in the restaurant it was a very nice experience. We haven't been in awhile and decided to take my mother-in-law here for dinner. They did not disappoint. I had the walleye and it was excellent. My mother-in-law enjoyed her salmon and my wife her half chicken.

Alfred Brave always delivers; food quality, service, timing, and an ambiance that invites date night dress up to Dockers shorts and a polo. A special night restaurant and you can still pay the mortgage afterwards.

Wonderful atmosphere! Weather was nice the evening we went, so we ate on the balcony. Our food was great, we weren't crazy about the salads, though. Avocado Shrimp was our appetizer and it was so good! I had the pork loin and my husband had the trout for our entrees. Both very good! Peter Brave came by to visit and that was very nice! Great experience and I would highly recommend!

Our first time eating here and it was amazing! The food was cooked to perfection, I had the mixed grill, the beef just melted in your mouth and the wild game sausage was delicious! Spicy without being overpowering. The quail and the pork loin were also very delicious. My Fiance' had the Walleye dinner special and he said it was superb! Our host was quit friendly and courteous as well as our server Ben, he was nice and informative on everything, he was very prompt and quite professional. We will eat here again and recommend it to everyone!

Love, love, LOVE! This was my first time eating here and what an experience! Kind of a weird entrance but once you get into the restaurant there’s an excellent view of the Arkansas river. Our server was so knowledgeable and kind. We came here to celebrate a birthday with family I hadn’t seen in a while so there was a lot of catching up to do. She let us know of the specials but made sure our drinks were filled and we were taken care of the whole time while we were busy chatting and catching up. Not only was the service amazing but the food was phenomenal. We couldn’t decide on an appetizer so we picked a few. The local tomato appetizer was my favorite! We got the seafood mixed grill, mixed grill, and walleye for entrees which were all amazing. We finished off with their ice cream which they made in house and had several flavors. Will definitely be returning soon! :)

The food was pretty good but not for the price you pay. I had the mixed grill plate and it had zero to no flavor. The steak was seared on a grill and just tasted like burnt steak. The rest of the meat was tender but no flavor. Overall the food is decent but not even close to the price you pay.
