The flavor of the food was very good but we like our eggs a little better done. The waiter should have asked how we like our eggs runny, medium or well done. The food was served on warm plates and the coffee was hot. The restaurant is quiet and spread out. It was wonderful to be able to hear your table mates and not hear another table's conversation. One course was enough for me so I would prefer the option to have one course instead of two or three. I would recommend it for a special occasion.
We were extremely disappointed woth the service. The food was very expensive, stingy portions, and not good value.
We were then urged to leave so that they could prepare for a private party.
We loved our lunch. Thee Japanese eggplant waa especially delicious.
Very Nice dinner at the Boston Museum of art. I can’t complain about seeing van Goghs quotethe ravine“ and then having a wonderful dinner. I had swordfish and my wife scallops both which were delicious. The corn bread appetizer was also quite good
Great meal in a lovely setting. Private. Healthy.
I took my mom to the MFA for her birthday and Saturday brunch at Bravo. She said it was the best omelette she had ever had. I also enjoyed my meal of the chicken thigh with potato salad.
It was a great meal.
The food was very good and the atmosphere was lovely, but the service was terribly slow. We had tickets to an exhibit elsewhere in the museum and we thought we had left plenty of time (an hour and forty five minutes) but we had to ask the server to hurry things up so we could make it on time. We just did.
Dinner at Bravo is a superb way to end a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts. It's a lovely atmosphere with tolerable noise level and a reliable menu.
Quiet and attractive space with attentive service. Food was interesting and food we selected was quite good, especially the swordfish.
Fabulous food, great service, but very limited food options, they need to offer some lighter fare options
We enjoy going to Bravo following a visit to the MFA. We like the food and the ambiance. We also enjoy taking out of town visitors for lunch or dinner following a visit to the museum.
Great waiters. Very quiet place. Comfortable seating. QUIET!!!!
Ambiance is fantastic, the food could be better. Mix of French, American and middle Eastern it seems, but mixed up too much. Salad had unfortunately some sand in it. Service was good.
Best Sunday brunch with music. Never disappoints on the food
We've been to Bravo four or five times, always in connection with an MFA event. The service continues to be poor and the food mediocre. What recommends it is the spaciousness and pleasant ambience. On Sundays there is a piano/bass duo for quiet background music.
One of the best in Boston and That is saying a lot!
Quiet restaurant in the Museum of fine arts. I really enjoyed the low key atmosphere.
Have eaten at bravo dozens of times. It’s a lovely and quiet setting with nice staff . But the food, especially this last time, was mediocre at best . It’s more expensive than downstairs atrium cafe - which has far better food.
Love the setting. Food was solid. Service left much to be desired. Manager yelling to waitress in the dining room... felt in-fine dining.
Fantastic brunch, excellent service that didn’t bother us until we needed it and we had a leisurely meal - totally European style.
Great food and a great experience, just a bit pricey.
Terrific meal after visiting the MFA exhibits... A very nice ambience... excellent service, and delicious meal with good selection of innovative dishes.
For the price, the food must be outstanding. The food was average. Not flavorful or memorable.
Great warm rolls. Roasted beet salad was excellent. Grilled broccoli rabe was way too over-spiced; there's no need to add more intensity to an already intensely flavored veg. Squid-ink pasta was similarly over-flavored. More subtlety, please!
Had dinner before attending an event at the MFA. Ate at the bar. The bartender/server was very personable. I had the Artic Char, it was delicious!
The menu offered a number of unusual choices. The food was attractive and generally good. The Plantain Fritters were oily and overcooked. The Cacio E Pepe Cavatelli was very good, once you got past the odd color of the cavatelli. I guess it was spinach. The real problem with Bravo is the service. The wait staff all seem to be in low gear. You constantly have to try and get their attention. Wine came after the first course was served, even though we could see the bar and it was not busy. They cleared the first course and took the silverware. They then brought the main course, but we had to ask for silverware. They asked if we wanted more rolls, we said yes. When they didn't come we flagged down the server and reminded about the bread. One roll was delivered! I would have rated Bravo higher if they had more attentive wait staff.
Go to Bravo for lunch or dinner, not the overpriced Brunch with small quantities and a forced 2 or 3 course prix fix.
The food was very good and it’s a nice spot for a relaxing break from the museum. Our waiter started out fine and then as the meal went on, he was MIA. Dessert took awhile to arrive and we had to ask for the check three times. Eventually most of our group left because it took so long and left the payor behind.
It’s a nice restaurant for a special meal but given the other choices in the MFA, it won’t always be our first choice.
The service was professional and helpful, the ambience perfect, the food delicious. Absolutely nothing with which to find fault....
Amazing food and wine. The eggplant is to die for and the chicken was excellent too. Great wine list and great service.
We fave dined here many times and still one of our favorites. The food and service were excellent,.
It is a little more expensive that the other restaurants at the museum, but worth the splurge.
we out of towners were there once before and enjoyed enough to make it a destination from our cruise. Friendly professional service ad great food.
Added attraction is a tour of the museum, but would go for the restaurant alone.
We loved the beautiful and quiet atmosphere and the wait staff, to a person, were all exceptional. We both had fish, the mussels and a shrimp dish, which were disappointing-the fish were tired, did not taste fresh, and for the price it was both a surprise and a letdown. I would like to come again because the room and the atmosphere are wonderful, but not so sure about the quality of the food.
We've eaten here at corporate events and find it a nicely upscale place for dining while visiting the MFA. Both the salmon and crab cakes were tastily and beautifully presented, the blackberry cocktail refreshingly seasonal. As to price, with most museum restaurants, food and drink are a dollar or two above local restaurant prices. It is a lovely experience to take a relaxed time out during visiting the galleries in such a large museum. Fresh blossoms on each table, white tablecloths, a glass enclosed quiet location.
Lovely setting. Great for conversation. Food was tasty but portions are for one...don't try to share or you'll leave hungry. Servers are very sweet, but slow.
Small interesting plates beautifully presented.
Excellent food and service. Have been there twice in the last month to "treat" a friend and relative, and have been very pleased with the menu offerings, the quality and presentation of the food, the care and attention of the service, and the overall ambience.
Excellent dining before or after visit to the art galleries at the MFA
My friend and I used this spot for a business meeting and had a fantastic lunch. I had the salmon that was tasty and cooked well. She had the eggplant that she thoroughly enjoyed as well.
