This restaurant is open only before shows at the Arscht center in Miami and is a wonderful option. Delicious food (we've been there 3 times), high end sophisticated decor, overall a great experience, and a way to make going to a theater or music event at the center an all-around wonderful evening.

Convenient location (within Arsht Center), and highly accomodating staff. Food was outstanding, though advisable to call ahead to see what's on the menu in case you have dietary limitations.

The menu on online was not the menu presented to me at the restaurant. I had few choices that appealed to me there. For example they featured tile fish on the menu - a tasteless fish loaded with mercury. The main side dish for all dishes seemed to be potato’s. I finally chose a filet mignon that was small and tasteless. The service people were attentive and did their best but what can you do when what you deliver to the table had no eye appeal and tasted second rate? Stay far away.

Open only when there's a show/concert. We went before one and had a delicious leisurely dinner.

We arrived almost at their closing time (near 9:00pm) but service was outstanding. Food was impeccable, the restaurant should really look into opening for more than pre-theater dining because everything was superb!
We reserved for the Miami Spice, they call beforehand letting us know that they had opted out of Miami Spice, we decided to try the restaurant as it was one we wanted to try for a while now and they were kind enough to respected in their best way possible the Miami Spice deal by offering, with no necessity because everything was outstanding, dessert on the house!

I had made a reservation and when we arrived only about half the tables were full. We were sat next to two other tables in extremely close proximity. I asked if we could move to a table that was a little more private and was told originally we couldn't be moved because it's too difficult for the servers. (The table was right next to the bar where the servers had to go to get the drink orders anyway) finally we were allowed to move. The server we had kept saying a will be with you in two minutes, when in reality the wine sommelier ended up taken care of us. The original server was horrible. Actually spoke to us while he back was turned and he was at the bar getting other tables orders. He also was Stomping and running around, yelling "CORNER"loud enough for the whole restaurant to hear when going in the back of the house. It was really a shame. The food was amazing, great flavor and presentation and I love the design of the restaurant. I am not sure I would go back due to the horrible service.

I enjoyed the salmon and eggplant appetizers, homemade focaccia and butter...Yum! I also enjoyed the truffled artichokes, they hit the spot! My guest did not enjoy the strawberry grouper. It was very tough and stringy, not how fish should be prepared. The presentation was pretty though. And the succotash was very fresh. Bottom line I would go back.

I went to the restaurant to celebrate my best friend's birthday. We had a 5:45 p.m. reservation and tickets to see Diana Ross at 7:30 in the theater located in the very same building. Never did I expect to wait over an hour for the main course (steak) to be served. We had no time for dessert-even though I called the restaurant the arrange for a special dessert and to have happy birthday sung to her. The sad part is that the food was incredibly good---the service however was incredibly bad--in fact, I think it may have been the worse service I ever had. I complained to the manager--who was receiving complaints left and right-apparently the restaurant was understaffed that evening. My waitress was lovely but she was taking care of far too many tables at once. So even though I had a reservation for a time so much earlier than the concert that evening--we had to rush into the theater and find our seats in the dark since the show had already started. No matter how wonderful the food was--I will not be returning to this restaurant.

The food was simply delicious. The clam chowder was amazing as well as the chicken and the salmon. Did not like the Caesar salad as it was too citrusy. The goat cheese dessert was superb. Great waiter. The only downfall was the time it took for someone to come to the table and the too much time between the appetizers and the entree which made us anxious to make it late to the show. Other than that it's a great dining experience.

The very limited menu for pre theatre dull and uninspired. They could do better. The entrees seemed pre-cooked for rapid service pre theatre. Seemed more like banquet food that cooked to order.

Great meal prior to a show at the Arsht. The staff was very attentive to the timing and made sure the meal was served and check was on the table prior to showtime. Not inexpensive, but reasonably priced and no reason to have dinner anywhere else prior to an evening show.

We are regular attendees at the Arsht Center Broadway series and have wanted to dine at Brava for some time. We didn't really want to rush through a nice dinner to get to the performance on time. So, we attended the Friday night performance and went back to Brava for an eight PM dinner on Saturday night. At 8:00 PM, all the theater attendees have headed out to the show, so Brava is quietly ready for a very nice dinner without all the hustle and bustle of the theater crowd. The food, service and quiet ambiance of the dinning room were all great for two "mature" folks pleasure!
Planning to do it again!

Delicious food. Great for a special occasion a special it's an it pricey for an everyday meal. The whipped clam chowder (truffle addition and lighter texture were delightful) and risotto bouillabaisse (including lobster and a tart creamy flavor) were delicious. A great option before an Arsht opera house show since you're ready to head to your seats straight after dinner.

The lamb dish was sumptuous. Ambience is sophisticated and cozy. I found it overpriced though. Dinner for two easily can be $150.

My wife and I dined at Brava after the Yo-Yo Ma & Cleveland Orchestra concert, which ended at 8:45 PM. Brava would be a very good option for an after concert or opera dinner, however since it doesn't take reservations after 9 PM and most concerts won't end until 10 PM, the restaurant is missing out on catering to the concert-goers. Brava is an option for a pre-concert dinner, though I consider this a less attractive alternative. The food we had was excellent, the wine list is decent and the service, though very friendly, could have been more attentive. A couple of times we had to remind our server to pour us more wine.

A bit pricey. Alter is a better deal. They didn't have everything in the menu and I guess that's ok since it's not a traditional everyday restaurant.
