Thank you to our gracious and competent waiter who had to deal with some challenging people. Greatly appreciated and admirably handled!
Delicious, fun lunch with interesting menu...great !
Excellent food but extremely slow service
Wonderful mussels and scallops, the museum is such an added plus
Wonderful 3 course food selection for brunch. Something for everyone. Steak, eggs, mussels, hash browns and infused pound cake. Great food preparation.
We went to Bravo to celebrate a birthday and then tour through the museum. Everything about the experience was great. The staff was attentive, but not overbearing. All of our starters and entrees were delicious. I had arranged to have a birthday cake made and they sang Happy Birthday as they delivered it. Kudos to the chef and waitstaff!
Excellent food in a Spectacular location (Museum of Fine Arts Boston). Best restaurant in the neighborhood between Longwood Medical Area and Symphony Hall.A pleasant walk from either.
We dined at Bravo before a lecture by Ted Stebbins and Matthew Teitelbaum.
I took my mother here for her 60th birthday. Perfect place to eat after wandering around the museum for a few hours. It IS incredibly expensive so be prepared for the big tab. The service and presentation was excellent, food was delicious, and waitstaff was attentive and efficient. The hostess even comped our parking ticket at the end of the night. Would recommend for special events or those who have the budget!
My date and I LOVED it! And, then we got to walk around the museum until closing time at 10 p.m. on a Friday evening. A wonderful night!
The food was delicious, the room spacious and quiet, and the service wonderful.
Bravo is an quiet gem of a restaurant! Tucked away at the MFA....
Food is always exquisite....
Can’t wait for another visit !
Not worth the price
One of the plates had an item not cooked properly and the kitchen quickly dealt with the problem. They also sent 2 extra desserts to make up for the error. Staff was amazing!
Extremely disappointing. The appetizer salad was good, but the roast chicken was the consistency of shoe leather and had little taste. The scallops also were disappointing. Service was deficient as well. The server tried to take my husband's plate before he'd finished his meal. She also forgot to bring bread and then asked us if we wanted bread. She eventually brought it, but it consisted of bland and tough rolls. Won't go back.
My husband and I had Sunday brunch during our visit to MFA. We liked the atmosphere. The restaurant is nicely decorated, has good service, and we especially enjoyed live music. The food was good and well presented but not great. A bit pricey.
I have been for lunch and was much more impressed. The server we had was either serving too many tables or just having a really off day. The salad I got was elegant and yummy Bloody Mary, but my eggs Benedict was served on a non toasted English muffin and the cheesecake we ordered for desert was bland and boring.
I love Bravo for its location inside the MFA and its interior design, but I really wish it would improve its service and value.
Too frequently the staff seems harried and is absent for long periods of time, the food feels as if has been prepared in advance, and, at their price point, I expect more.
Good stop during your museum tour
Great visit to MFA, relaxing area, quiet, away from crowded weekend throngs, two teenage boys enjoyed the food and dining with their grandparents who could hear and see. We all found the food to be excellent as well as the service.
Food is always good. Very convenient to have a nice dinner or lunch here while visiting the MFA.
Great ambience and service... food is usually fantastic but last night my swordfish was not cooked.
The food here is high quality to match the art! Martinis perfectly made; cold oysters perfectly shucked; the sauce for the mussels rich & creamy & swordfish entree was good sized & tasty. Server was knowledgeable & friendly & prompt. Great experience waiting out Storm Riley!
Good but really expensive. Decor has corporate feel. Could use plants and more coor.
The recorded background music was a bit annoying. I've been there in the past when a pianist was performing. It added considerably to the experience. Waiter was outstanding. Enjoyed the desert plate's being decorated to read, in chocolate, "Happy Birthday." Also appreciated the seating' complying with my request for a romantic setting. All in all, very nice place I will look forward to dining at again.
Bravo is a wonderful hideaway from the bustling museum crowd. The food and service are always great. Highly recommend this oasis in the the MFA.
I forgot how much I love this restaurant - we all did - we cleaned our plates from start to finish! The fact that it's in one of my favorite museums is just the icing on the cake (which reminds me - the dessert I had was the best I've had in a very long time)
We waited over 45 minutes for mediocre food. It's too bad...it's a wonderful space, quiet, comfortable, but the food should be better. And there should be salad options for lunch.
Perfect place to relax after (or during) taking in the MFA. Food was good, live piano and bass were enjoyable . We snuck brunch in right in the middle of our Museum tour. Perfect place to relax with a cocktail and reenergize for the second half of our visit. Pricey, but since we only make it to the MFA once or twice a year, well worth it.
Bravo is quiet, elegant and on the Saturday we went there was a two piece jazz ensemble with a wonderful repertoire. The food was delicious and the service was a good combination of solicitous but not intrusive. This is as good choice even if you are not planning a museum visit.
Wonderful restaurant! Great visiting MFA but lunch was delicious! Scallops, crabcake and salmon recommended . Lovely ambience
Food and the atmosphere met our expectations. There were insufficient numbers of waitstaff. Service was painfully slow waiting for our appetizer and then our main course.
Went for Valentine's Day. The food was outstanding. We ordered entree and one appetizer from the specials, and one appetizer from the regular menu. The tahini squash appetizer was wonderful. The foie gras Torchon was also fantastic. We ordered the beef for two special, and it was phenomenal. (Enough for four meals; glad to take half home!) The only downside was our server. She was sweet, but had problems keeping things on track. We sat for a long time before she took our order, then a long time for bread, etc. (Total time for meal was two hours) She forgot to bring the spinach we ordered, but it was not on the bill. We weren't terribly upset as we were having a wonderful conversation, but the people around us were. (And we could tell other servers were doing better) She comped an appetizer as an apology for the slowness. We will definitely go again, but recommend that if you dine here, be prepared for a longer meal.
Lovely meal and nice and quiet. Food was especially good.
Very good meal and great service. Good selection of meals. Will definitely return.
As usual, a delightful mid-day meal in the lovely setting of Boston’s MFA.
We were very pleased with the Japanese Special menu.
The only comment, ramen was a bit too salty.
Clams were fabulous and sweet potato was a combination of delicious umami and natural sweetness :)
The main virtue is the ambience. The restaurant is spacious, and the pleasant sounds of a piano and bass viol in one corner were relaxing. Service leaves much to be desired, and the food (Sunday brunch) is nothing to write home about. Recommended if you want quiet time before (or after) seeing an exhibit or a film.
Our brunch was wonderful. You have to order a two-course or three-course brunch. There is no ala carte. It was somewhat more expensive than we were expecting, however. The prices listed on OpenTable are out of date. I doubt we'll be going back because of the cost. Lovely food, though, and nice piano music during Sunday brunch.
