Great as always. Very consistent. Delicious.
My colleagues and I have travelled extensively and enjoyed meals at many restaurants and the Chilean Sea Bass was by far some of the best we have ever tasted. The lobster salad was amazing as were the raw oysters and scallops. The duck was a little raw but the beat tenderloin was cooked to perfection.
Made our reservations through OpenTable. Requested outdoor dining, weather permitting. Weather was fantastic but they did not reserve a table for us outdoors and we were extremely disappointed. We travelled from Ft Smith, our guests travelled from Memphis, all for the purpose of eating at Brave. Nothing was mentioned about "reservations are only available outdoors if it is not full" or outdoors not guaranteed. Brave never disappoints regarding food and ambiance, but we were extremely unhappy that we did not get to eat where we reserved.
Romantic atmosphere, great cocktails. and delicious food!!
Our party of 7 had a wonderful evening. The dinners were delicious. Peter Brave came by twice to check on us. Our waiter was fabulous he never missed a beat with our numerous changes when ordering. It was the first time we had been out in a year and we felt very safe. It was wonderful to know all that work there had been vaccinated.
I took my boyfriend here for a birthday present and this restaurant did not disappoint. The location was wonderful. The staff was extremely pleasant and the owner was so sweet and attentive. The food was delicious and my boyfriend enjoyed his “birthday crème brûlée” so much and he doesn’t even eat sweets often. We will definitely be going back.
We hadn’t been in a few years and it was AMAZING!!!!!
Great food and service in a riverside setting. Good menu. We went for lunch. Excellent kid’s menu.
The food and service were wonderful as always! Our new go to for lunch out!
As always, we had a lovely dining experience at Brave. The food and service are constantly good. Dining on the deck on a lovely evening was delight!
Food was excellent. We celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary and our granddaugters 11th birthday. We sat outside and watched the birds and the river. This is my wifes favorite restaurant and my granddaughters question when we left was "Grandpa when can we come back"!
Always a fine meal and great service.
Excellent experience with wonderful food. We ate on the deck and had excellent service and the food was wonderful. We would definitely eat here again. Everything we had was cooked to perfection and paired with a great wine.
Located in a Little Rock business office building, yes...a business office, Brave New Restaurant is a beautiful Arkansas gem. Outdoor dining offers a view of the flowing Arkansas River with a menu highlighted by local sourced fare as well as classics American cuisine. Our pecan encrusted trout, fresh from Minnesota was amazing and don’t forget their chocolate brûlée.
Excellent food, always consistently prepared. Casually elegant vibe. Great service over many years of returning to this restaurant. Great location for occasions, too.
We go there for my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary every year. It’s always great!
Thank you for a lovely lunch! Service was perfect as was the river view from the terrace.
Dated atmosphere full of plastic plants. Steak was ordered as medium but was well done. Many better restaurants at this price point. Will not return.
Great food and service!
Best Veal ever and Walleye was Great!
Love Brave New!
Everyone’s food was cooked awesome except mine. ☹️ Steak was over cooked. I don’t like sending food back so I ate it.
Owner was really cool and the ribeye was the best I’d ever had. Amazing restaurant. I wish it wasn’t 10 hours from home. I ate there passing through and I’m glad I found it!
Fabulous food. Best view in town from the patio. If you don’t try the chocolate creme brûlée, you will have missed one of the finest dessert experiences available to man.
Peter Brave owns and runs an e cells that restaurant. The food is always good especially any seafood. The service is excellent and there is staff who have been with him for a long time and speaks volumes as to the kind of boss he is. I would always recommend this restaurant. The outside dining is some of the best around.
Lovely time. Food was very good. We loved it but we’re not “blown away”
The food was OK. I ordered the beef tenderloin which was cooked perfectly, however my wife ordered the NY strip and it was overdone (ordered medium, but was pushing well done in most parts). My wife didn’t want me to say anything about it to the waiter since it was her birthday, so I obliged.
The music being played is the background was very dated and would be fine for a much older crowd (70s+)... maybe.
It was an average outing and not the great experience I remember from previous visits.
Found something in the salad that was not suppose to be there. The waiter apologized and offered a replacement salad, he then obviously removed the salad from the bill. As the owner was walking around the restaurant checking on other guest he never came to our table to apologize for the incident. I have been at many other places when the owner will fall over him/herself to come and make things better than right after an incident.
I had the fish special (that they are known for) and was not impressed. It was just a plain ole baked fish with simple seasoning. Desserts were very good! Really enjoyed the creme brülee.
We had an EXCELLENT experience and our waiter was very knowledgeable with the menu and helped my boyfriend pick out a wine he would like.
Everything was so good!
The food was excellent as always. we were glad that Peter is still practicing safe distancing of tables and still requiring masks to enter. We felt very safe.
The food is unbelievable! Cooked perfectly to the temperature I ordered.
The food and the service were both fantastic! Very quaint with a nice view!
Love going to Brave New for lunch with my friends!
Staff made sure everything was perfect for ur evening there. We love this place.
Food and service were excellent. Highly recommend !
Great food. My guests loved the scallops. My walleye was just right !
I wish we would've been out by the window. I thought when I requested the table an said that it was a "special night" they'd put us out by the window, but they stuck us in what seemed to be an old office room with tile ceiling and wall bumpers. It didn't feel as nice as I'd wanted it to. Me and my wife don't go out to nice dinners often because of kids and it was our one night out in over year, and the ambiance let me down. Peter Brave coming out and talking was nice,. My brother used to work there and he always said Peter was so nice and he was.
The food was good, but the restaurant needs updated. It felt very dated and had zero
The specials were delicious. I had the Oysters Bienville appetizer which was new to the menu since our last visit. They were as good as I’ve ever eaten. My companion had the Wagyu beef (also a special) which was cooked per his request to a perfect medium rare. The restaurant was as full as permitted under Covid restrictions but the noise level was comfortable for conversation. The service was excellent. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. All in all, it was a terrific experience.
