Food was mediocre. Took a while to be seated even though we had reservations. Searing in the booth was uncomfortable.

Our meal pleased the foodies as well as there-must-always-be-meat diners in our group. Excellent service and ambience. It was my birthday and my choice, so I was happy that everyone agreed to a return visit in the near future!

Dined at Bravo many times. The food is consistent and the service better than average. Price points are good for the area. Our party was surprised by the seemingly heavy use of garlic in the entrees and two of us who had the petite tenderloin would have preferred a gravy that was far less salty. Overall a nice birthday meal and will return.

We have been to Bravo many times for lunch and dinner over the years. This is the first time we tried it for Sunday brunch. We should have done this much sooner! The French toast was absolutely unbelievable. Other than the vegetarian lasagna, all of the food was excellent. Myself and those in my party ate way too much. There was a large selection of both breakfast and lunch choices. I would highly recommend brunch or any meal at Bravo.

Always good food in a friendly, warm atmosphere. The Sunday Brunch has a large selection, with many "lunch" items as well as waffles, omelets, fruit and breakfast meats. And delicious desserts. The only thing missing is their delicious mushroom soup, which I always get if I'm there for lunch or dinner.

The mushroom soup should be illegal. It's that addicting. Great service, great venue with as good a chef as there is in the greater area (maybe more). My one knock is the pricey liquor. That's not enough to offset the rest.

There are quieter tables. We prefer those. Also had daughters rehearsal dinner here in the private dining room and have had class reunions, family parties and group presentations here. Do not like tables in the middle of a room . As we get older it is harder to hear.

Good food, excellent service. The one disappointment are the hot dishes, they are pretty uninspired. It would be nice to have more variety instead of always the same, and a bit more flavor rather than the bland offerings. Everything else is great, omelettes, salads, desserts, cheeses, just not the hot dishes. Luckily nobody leaves hungry, there are plenty of other good things to eat.

Bravo runs an amazing special on Thursday nights (about 6 months out of the year) where they have 1/2 price pizza, pasta, and beers they brew. It's an incredible value, and the servings are not smaller because of the sale. They have delicious brick oven pizza!

We had guests here from California and took them to bravo for a very lovely dinner question

As a matter of fact one of our guests owns restaurants in California and she was very impressed with Brabo

We had our reservation time mixed up and arrived 30 minutes before they opened . A manager insisted we come in and relax at the table until a server was ready ! Within 10 minutes a lovely young woman came with bread and water and was delightfully ready to serve us - before the restaurant was even open !!

We had a group of 10 and they provided excellent service throughout the entire evening.
Our group included a nonagenarians and two octogenarians, two of whom were hard-of -hearing; the wait staff were patient and kind to all. Thank you!
The food was excellent, especially the walleye, the morel mushroom pizza and the lemonade cake.

We had a reservation, however, we were finishing early so could arrive sooner than the reservation. A quick call confirmed that there would be no problem. We had a couple of early teens that were picky eaters. The requested changes to their orders were cheerfully accommodated. Everyone's meals made each person happy.

I haven't been to brunch here in several years and was disappointed. Everything tasted fine but nothing was special. There were less options than I remember and most of it was standard fare; like what you could get at a Big Boy buffet. I remember this buffet being over the top but my two other visits were Mother's Day so perhaps holidays are kicked up a notch. I also couldn't help but notice the casual attire that is allowed. Perhaps this is just the way of the world now but there were guests in cargo shorts and sports T-shirts. Really? I always think of Bravo as a fine dining but nothing made me feel that way on Sunday.
