This place is awesome. It's a little pricey, but the food was worth it.

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.

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.

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 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.

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!!!

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.

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.
