Bravo! Restaurant and Cafe Ratings and Reviews
This was my husbands and I first experience at bravos and it was delicious! The service was excellent, speedy, never had to ask for a refill, food arrived in a timely manner, and was by far the best steak medallions we have ever had! Can not wait to come back to celebrate again on our upcoming anniversary! Thank you so much for a beautiful dinning experience! It was a much needed night out with my husband.
I always like bringing my wife here when we want to slow down and have a nice meal. The service is great and the food is tasty. I like that we have a nice place to come to for our Valentine's Day date. Even after 19 years of marriage, Bravos adds to our love for each other and willingness to experience nice things. Well done.
Everything was great! Didn’t care for the cucumber in our water and our first orange juice of the Sunday brunch was warm. Swatting at nats here I know. This place is wonderful to dine at and they are very accommodating. Food is the best in Kalamazoo! We love coming here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fine dinner or brunch experience.
Celebrated a 25th wedding anniversary with family. Sunday brunch is our favorite and selection and variety is great. Everything from breakfast selections including fantastic custom made omelets, waffles with fruit topping, variety of rolls etc. Everything else, in addition to breakfast, included beef, fish, pork and chicken. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. And the desserts were yummy. Price is great. Can’t wait to go again.
We decided to go to the Brunch on Sun the 26h of Nov, as it was our 46th Wedding Ann and we hadn't been to Bravo for years. Easy to make a reservation this time and the food and service was great. Surprisingly reasonable cost. We'll be sure to go again the the future.
So nice to have a dining experience that clicked on "all cylinders". Server (Anna1) was fantastic. Both attentive and accurate. Mushroom soup was delicious as usual. Duck was tasty and well prepared. Surf and Turf was also very good. We will definitely return.
Bravo's Sunday brunch is still one of the best around. They've held the line on pricing for years now, and the value is still substantial. They've made some changes recently which aren't the greatest--muffins and the like replaced with some kind of pull-apart monkey bread analog, and the fruit is no longer individual slices but rather one big bowl of chunks--but the value is still more than sound for what you'll pay. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with a constantly-burning fireplace as the room's centerpiece. Your view of it, of course, may vary. A recent change featured cucumber slices in the water, which turns out to be a lot tastier than you may expect and turns even city water into an experience. I tend to prefer lime in the water, but cucumber worked quite well.
Loved that we could make reservations through Open Table for a large group on relatively short notice. Excellent food- everyone ate something different and everyone satisfied at the end of the meal. Couldn't resist sharing several of the desserts- again delicious! Definitely worth driving across town to get there.
The cost of the food was not as good as it should have been for the price, it was only mediocre. Our water glasses were constantly being refilled, so much that we felt we were drowning. Unfortunately, our waitress was not as attentive. She was not available to wait on us when we needed anything, refill on coffee, dessert menu, etc. One of our party asked for the dessert menu when we first sat down but we never did get it until we asked TWO more times at the end of our meal! And it was not because the place was busy, there were only two or three other tables occupied. Will probably never go back unless I am forced.
