Chef's nightly choice of fish served with caperberries, topped with a sauce of horseradish and whole-grain mustard
The weather allowed us to sit outside on deck overlooking the River. A perfect lunch.
Great food and experience with excellent views of the river from a secluded location. It could be hard to find your first time there, but definitely worth it.
I had the seasonal heirloom tomato platter, which is always tasty. Then for my meal I had half dozen oysters - 3 Bienville and 3 Rockefeller. They do a nice job with oysters and cook them just right. For dessert: white Russian ice cream.
Excellent, as usual. Ricardo ensures we always have a wonderful experience!
Wow, the heirloom tomatoes and burrata ‘salad’ was the BEST I have ever had. The plate was filled with huge, juicy tomatoes - I said ‘salad’ - it could have been my entree. All our food was outstanding, and the service was great. The restaurant is quite pretty and has a lovely setting on the River, although a little hard to find - don’t give up
Excellent food, drinks, service, and view. Great Place!
Birthday celebration and Brian, our waiter, was much fun and very knowledgeable! Nice to meet the chef ad well
We love Brave New Restaurant! Food and service are always excellent.
Both seasonal offerings and menu regulars were delicious. Great flavor profiles. Lovely setting with attentive staff. Their attention to detail makes the difference. There are lots of restaurants in Little Rock but this is a consistent favorite.
We can to the restaurant for a bachelorette dinner. We had amazing food and service. We were greeted and checked on by many of the staff including the owner/chef. He was so kind and made sure we were having a wonderful time! This place is fantastic and I can’t wait to return!!
Peter Brave always comes thru with fabulous meals. It was wonderful.
LOVE this place!
Leo the dog chases geese off the lawn. Peter Brave is very present directing operations and chatting with guests. Love the heirloom tomatoes this time of year!…
One of the best restaurants in Little Rock!
Always excellent food
Great food, great service, great conversation. Will be back soon.
Had a wonderful experience. Food and service were excellent. We are not big muckety-mucks who go to fancy restaurants all the time, but the waitstaff (and the owner) made us feel welcome and valued. Our table had a beautiful view of the Arkansas River.
Just closed on our new home and wanted a special night out. I grew up with Peter Brave and would not go anywhere else. What he does good is fantastic!!!!
2 Had the walleye and it was excellent. 1 had duck and loved it. 1 had the pork and ate every bite. Such a pleasure to have such good food and service.
As always Great. Celebrating family tradition when anybody - children or grandchildren comes we Need to Eat at Brave
Fast service creme brûlée was amazing! Very nice water views, took our 2 children, family friendly and great service!
Wonderful evening with friends and family. Brave did a perfect meal for all on their new outdoor red table patio expansion. Service was great.
Excellent food and sevice. Always a pleasure to find here.
Loved being outside on the deck and looking at the water. And the food was excellent. Service was also exceptional
Another fabulous meal from Peter Brave and his staff. The wife and guest raved about his fabulous walleye with a special cranberry beurre blanc with glazed carrots, roasted potatoes and zucchini. My veal in lime sauce was simply delicious; the breading was crunchy and the meat fork tender. His chocolate creme brûlée could compete in ANY food competition and it didn’t disappoint.
Fabulous views of the river with lovely ambiance. What more could we look for?
Yummy....patio view of river was amazing!
Owner came to table and greeted us.
Best mixed grill ever. Service was superb, the kitchen may have lost our ticket but we were in no rush and it was a nice place to hang out and the food was well worth the wait
Brave New never disappoints. We have dined here for well over 20 years and never had a bad meal or experience. The Walleye and Scallop specials are always fresh and perfectly prepared! Two of our favorites. An adequate wine list to pair with anything on the menu and the Chocolate Creme Brule' is the best around. An evening sitting on the deck and watching the river makes for a most pleasant evening.
Service and food was OUTSTANDING!!!! I highly recommend
Ambiance is good on deck with fan on us, overlooking Arkansas River which was high, with a cute beaver in the yard, lots of birds, including hummingbirds and a flock of Canadian geese.
Waiters really on top of it all serving whatever you wanted: Before dinner drink, appatizers, bottle of wine, dinner, and of course there OUTSTANDING Chocolate Crème Brûlée, topped off with coffee and Drambuie.
Love the food and staff!
As always, our dining experience was wonderful. The "tomato plate special" is back and great. I always appreciate Peter's visit to each table to welcome customers and solicit feedback about the food and service. So glad to be able to return to a (fully vaccinated) favorite restaurant.
Service was poor & slow. Open seating in main area however was seated in the back. Requested to be sat outside once tables opened up but was not called for table. Food was sub par and overpriced for ratio of food. Overall not satisfied with this latest visit.
Amazing food, amazing and attentive service. A great experience. Will definitely be back!
Great food and location! Service was wonderful! Definitely recommend
I had the Oysters Bienville appetizer special. That was a tough choice between that and the seasonal heirloom tomato platter! But NOONE cooks oysters like BNR! Just right! I also had the ahi tuna entree. BNR has the BEST Ahi tuna!
Everything at this restaurant is always absolutely wonderful. I am a longtime fan of this place which, I believe is a Little Rock treasure.
Always consistent. Fresh delicious food at its best! Service is impeccable.
Great as always!! Great food. Great Staff.
All was wonderful. We ate outside and the only reason I marked the noise as moderate was because of the fans to keep us cool. The flowers, birds and view all went well with the excellent food.
Everything about our experience was wonderful! Be sure to give it a try if you are in the area!
