An overall wonderful experience. Me and my 3 guests had great meals (2 pastas, 1 salad and 1 pizza), the beer selection was great, and the service was spot on. Two of us were in town on business, and on our next trip back this restaurant will be on our dining list!

Sunday Brunch, service was great, disappointed there was no Eggs Benedict, shrimp cocktail, or Smoked Salmon, bacon was burnt, cheap nasty breakfast sausage, Orange juice watered down, Pizza was really good, desserts were great. Prime rib or grilled sirloin would be much better than the dry crusty thin sliced beef in a warmer, yuck!!! Honestly one of the worse brunches I have ever been too.

I had the shrimp/artichoke/spinach special...it was wonderful. My husband has had your spaghetti in the past and loved it. There is no spaghetti on your menu! The waiter brought him pasta with a little meat sauce which he said "wasn't bad", but it wasn't spaghetti that you would expect from an upscale Italian restaurant.
Your menu is very vague and rather difficult to navigate, but your food, service and ambiance
is wonderful. I would recommend Bravo to friends.

It was my girlfriends birthday and I made the reservation very short notice. I appreciate the effort put in and the wait staff came around just the perfect amount. She had never been there and enjoyed herself quite a bit. Thank you for the lovely experience. Will come back again.

Bravo has been an excellent place to dine in the past. Their homemade bread has changed in flavor (not for the good,) their signature salad was small and not the fresh, tasty salad it once was and the pizza we ordered did not have the brick oven crispness it once had. The server
was not as attentive as we have had in the past, but adequate. All in all, we four diners were
not as happy as we had hoped to be.

We celebrated a family get together and enjoyed the opportunity to visit with one another. It was not too noisy. The food was delicious. The calamari appetizer was tender and not chewy. I enjoyed to the duck entree.

The food was delicious and the wine list had a great selection to accompany it. The service was a little slow compared to other places especially in fulfilling drink orders, however the server was very attentive and extremely personable. I will definitely be making a trip back here soon.

Their menu has a good variety including salads, pizza, pasta, meat, and seafood. Drinks and wines are reasonably priced. Most of us had pizza and we all loved it. It's a nicer atmosphere than most restaurants in Portage.

Food and service are among the best in the region. Classic American and Italian inspired menu that has an option for every taste. The attention to food quality and execution is obvious and a refreshing experience. The house made beer selection is also carefully selected with many interesting and delicious offerings. One of the best meals I've had in some time.

Thank you to Open Table for getting us a last minute 8-person table here on a Saturday night. The staff at Bravo was friendly and helpful, especially when we had a problem with one of the meals. Everyone was very attentive in trying to resolve the problem. Good food, great service. We couldn't have asked for more.

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.
