Brave New Restaurant exceeded my expectations! The food was fabulous... cooked perfectly and tasty. The staff was upbeat and welcoming. Our waiter was engaging, helpful, and attentive. Overall, a wonderful experience and absolutely recommend!
I chose this restaurant to be EXTRA Special!!!!! I chose it for my birthday and at lunch so it wouldn’t be too busy seeing how reservations are required. The food was very delicious however, there were only 2 other tables occupied while we were there and it took 18 minutes before our waiter even came over after the hostess seated us. I also ordered the Chocolate Crème Brûlée for dessert and it was good.
I did appreciate him putting a candle in it, but “on the house” would have been even better. Over-all this was good lunch, but the inside atmosphere nor service seemed exceptional.
celebration lunch. chosen menu (pine nut encrusted salmon) item not available that day. Lobster roll replacement was all claw meat--delicious. Spouses lobster ravioli was perfect.
Our food and service was outstanding! The restaurant is located in a weird location-inside of an older building. But, the decor was beautiful inside. We were really blown away with how delicious the food was and how friendly and attentive our server was. We will definitely come back and recommend to others!
Throughly enjoyed everything!!!! Will be back!!!!!
My wife and I celebrated our 50th Wedding anniversary at Brave. We both were very impressed with the overall service and ambiance.
Great food, great staff and service. Great view of the river as well.
Excellent food, great specials, wonderful ambiance, price reasonable, only complain is the wait staff not having a uniformed appearance changes the atmosphere a bit.
Everything is wonderful at Brave New!!! We love to eat there!!! Can’t wait til the next time!!!!
Dined for New Years Eve dinner. Service was great, distancing appropriate, and wonderful wine list. Food was excellent as usual!
New Years tradition for us
We went for our anniversary. Everything was wonderful :-)
We tried this place for our anniversary because of the reviews we read. They did not disappoint! We made reservations and we're about 20 minutes early but we're seated immediately. The environment was phenomenal (located on the riverfront), the service was excellent, and the food was even better. I had the duck and my wife had the trout, both were good choices. We felt this place was definitely designed to accommodate couples, do to the environment and music selection. Will absolutely return
Outstanding service including a table visit by Chef Peter Brave.
Always a great place!!!! Food little off, but still overall awesome!
My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful lunch on the terrace of Brave New Restaurant. The service was above and beyond in attention to detail and pleasant attitude. The food was very good. I enjoyed a small caesar salad ( the dressing was homemade and delicious!) This was followed by the lobster ravioli that were good with real lobster pieces inside. The vegetables that accompanied were ok. My husband began his meal with an outstanding mushroom soup and the fish special which was a "whitefish" with ginger sauce that he enjoyed.
We finished our meal with amazing in house roasted coffee and a very shareable chocolate dessert which was called chocolate creme brûlée. It did have a nice cover of caramelized sugar, but other than that, it was nothing like creme brûlée- although it was a delicious chocolate confection.
I should mention that the accommodations on the terrace were outstanding, with various heaters to keep u s comfortable. Nature provided a beautiful and tranquil view of the Arkansas River and its surrounding environs!
The food was outstanding as was the service and the lovely view of the river. We had the chicken stuffed crepes and mushroom soup, delicious! We had not been here before but we will be back for certain!
Because of covid virus pandemic, we have not gone to a restaurant since last January. Our 56th anniversary was the 19th, and David finally agreed after I suggested Brave New Restaurant to go to LR. Everything was A+, once we got there.
We have been there for years, but always with another couple, but that night, we found the parking lot easily, but no cars and not the location. After driving around looking for a sign, I called. He talked us through it. The gentleman could tell I was upset because we were 15 minutes late. When we arrived, he was so congeal; the waitress we so pleasant, and the food was Devine!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you, and Merry Christmas
Peter has taken the outdoor dining experience to a new level. You can enjoy outdoor seating in cool temperatures with the comfort of overhead heaters and under table warmers. It was 40 degrees and I was able to sit out and enjoy a lovely meal with the view of the river and downtown lights very comfortably.
The food was delicious as always.
Best meal we’ve had in months! The staff and owner are outstanding. They are also taking Covid-19 measures that made us feel very safe.
The salmon was amazing and my new go to dish at Brave New!
Loved everything about this place, but it was a little bit hard to find, turns out a gracious Young man told us how to get there. Then he turned out to be our server! We loved Hugh.
A little surprised to see Leo the dog roaming about
Brave New never disappoints. Service and food are solid. My fish presentation with three broken pieces scattered around the plate was less than wonderful. However, it tasted delicious so no problem. A wonderful restaurant we highly recommend.
Everything is perfect!
Always enjoyable. Heaters added to extend outdoor dining.
Brave new has done a fantastic job with the deck. They have a ton of heaters to sit outside and be safe!
Perfect service and the food as usual was fantastic!
Brave is the best place in Little Rock. The food is great every time. You will not be disappointed.
Wonderful meal as usual! Took 4 friends who never experienced Brave New Restaurant before. We had an incredible meal. Quiet enough you can hear your friends and carry on conversations too. Thank you!
Really wanted to like this restaurant but unfortunately the food was average and below.
Been dining there for over 20 years. Service and food is always great!
Spacious. SafEveryone w masks. Never under the nose. Delicious good w full menu. One of the best restaurants in the USA. I have taken friends, colleagues, and family from other states who are all blown away. Recent meals have featured... Grilled Red Snapper... Rack of lamb.... Grilled AHI Tuna.... oysters Rockefeller....walleye....Antelope....pork Tenderloin. even the plain old Baked chicken is crazy delicious. All expertly served and prepared. Nearly always There is some special entrée, or some special soup.! there is some special entrée, or some special soup.! Homemade ice cream’s, great desserts……I just reread this… I think I’m going back tonight!!
Best meal I have had out in a long time!
Hands down the best high end restaurant in Little Rock. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor and go here for your next special occasion!
Another memorable meal at Brave New Restaurant, our favorite in Little Rock. There's no dining experience more enchanting than sitting on its balcony overlooking the Arkansas River and watching the birds winging across a blue blue sky while sipping a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail and enjoying a perfectly prepared meal. We love the fish—sushi-grade tuna, their signature walleye, scallops, or another special—as well as their excellent salads, crusty bread with fresh butter, baby pattypan squash and other good vegetables, and for dessert the irrresistibly divine chocolate creme brulee. Go!
Always a favorite ours. Food was great and so was the service.
I always eat the filet, but my date usually has a fish. Both are excellent. It is absolutely the best place in town to have dinner.
We had a wonderfully romantic quiet dinner on the outside patio!
Enjoyed lunch on the patio. The food and weather were awesome.
Great food, impeccable service—simple as that. (But apparently I have to lay down 50 characters...)
