Brave New is our favorite!!! The goat cheese mousse is delicious. I had ahi tuna steak that was cooked to perfection! Peter’s Coffee with your dessert is a must!
We've been dining here for decades and look forward to more.
The staff, food and experience is always great.
Second visit for us with friends who had never had the chance. Great place with a fantastic meal and we all enjoyed the fantastic service and the food was fabulous. Will definitely be returning again in the near future.
Excellent restaurant with some great views and even better food! Super friendly staff, will definitely be going back!
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The wait staff was friendly. The owner stopped by our table twice. We were able to enjoy a nice meal, wine, and dessert in a very quaint environment. I will definitely return and recommend to others.
Excellent experience all around. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return.
Brave New Restaurant is usually my first choice for eating out. The food is always delicious and the service is always impeccable. I can always count on the consistency of both.
We love Brave New! We were hoping to set out on the back deck, but tables were comfortably spaced far apart inside. We thought the Covid precautions were managed very well!
We had a wonderful experience at Brave New Restaurant celebrating my sister’s 50th birthday!
Thank you Hugh for taking amazing care of us! We will definitely be back!
Absolutely delicious and fresh. Chef Peter Brave visited our table on several occasions. His pride in his dishes was evident in the conversations we had in regard to our chosen dishes. The ribeye special was beautifully aged and cooked to perfection. I had the scallops and the capers in the sauce were roasted and slightly crunchy. Wonderful. Our friends had the pork loin and the salmon. I am a huge fan of sauces and each one of our dishes featured one of the restaurants many sauces. Definitely try the chocolate creme brulee. I know it is the signature dessert and often times this drives people to try something different, but don't! Treat your palette to all that is good! We will definitely be returning.
It was delicious as ever. Peter Brave and his staff are very friendly and professional.
We love it. Especially when Peter comes out and chats with us. One of our best evenings out. Oh yea, the food is awesome.
Local fish paired nicely with roasted potatoes and vegetables. Mushroom soup was excellent and salads were very good . Overall a great experience.
Great place for our anniversary dinner! Loved eating outside on the deck.
Food is always wonderful. Heirloom tomatoes along with cheese is an incredible appetizer. Peter Brave is the most amazing chef in all of Little Rock. Ricardo was our waiter for the evening and did a remarkable job. He kept our glasses full and attended to every need. Highly recommend this restaurant. Best in Little Rock!!!
Great appetizers of heirloom tomatoes and oysters on the half shell. Entrees were salmon and surf and turf. Only slight negative was surf portion was fairly small amount of crab sets, steak filet was spot on.
Our party of 3 each had a different special that was being offered - tuna, halibut and scallops and all 3 meals were excellent. Peter always does a great job with fish and seafood meals and he always makes it point to make the rounds during your meal to check on how things are. This extra effort by a chef/owner certainly makes you feel like an appreciated customer. The service and dining experience during this covid environment was the best it could have been.
Brave New never disappoints!! Perfect birthday celebration!
Great selection and fabulous food! The view is awesome. His scallops preparation is simple yet second to none.
Food is always excellent at Brave New. Staff are customer focused and with the pandemic, they follow the guidelines and we’re very satisfied
The food was tasty and creative, the service perfect and the ambiance was warm and welcoming.
Everything was great but the ribeye was only average. Rather noisy.
My wife's birthday our favorite in Little Rock. We celebrate our special occasions there. Tuna is to die for.
We love our date nights on the river! What a view! The food here is always fresh, fabulous and thoughtfully prepared. I’m a veggie girl and the Mushroom Wellington is simply out this world delicious. My husband had the Ahi tuna and it was cooked perfectly. We topped the night off with Tres Leches cake with grilled peaches. Staff is warm and welcoming and it was nice to really relax and enjoy a wonderful meal here.
All great, service a tad slow, but I think that is because it was very busy.
Amazing food & service as always! Our Anniversary spot every year and they have never disappointed. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the state of Arkansas, make sure you dine at Brave New Restaurant! Best in the state!
Brave New Restaurant has been a favorite of ours for many years. The entrees are always so delicious, and paired with equally delicious accompaniments.
We dine here as an occasional treat and the food and service are always so nice. Thank you Peter for your expertise and demeanor!
Brave New is set on the Arkansas River and a thunderstorm came through which cooled off the evening for a super nice patio dining experience. There were so many specials they needed a menu of their own! So many good choices and something for everyone’s palate. Overall it was outstanding, however it is pricey.
This is my and my wife's favorite place to go to celebrate special occasions.
As always, the food was a hit! Scallops in lemon beurre blanc were so delicious. Never had a bad experience at this lovely restaurant!
This place never disappoints. The food is always excellent and the view is great.
Absolutely wonderful dining experience. Great food and great service. Highly recommend dining here.
Wonderful evening on the porch. Fish was perfectly cooked; wine fine; service impeccable. Memorable start to finish.
We enjoyed our meal very much. The food was fabulous. We never felt rushed. The view was fun and The staff was wonderful. We will return!
Excellent*. My favorite restaurant in Little Rock AR.
One of the few restaurants that are as good as the gourmet meals that my lady prepares at home in Searcy AR.
Excellent service as always. Owner Peter Brave checked on my party re: food and service. Great attention to detail. Love this restaurant!
Always the best in town. Food has been consistently good for 25 years. The view of the Arkansas River and downtown is fabulous. Ask for an outside table if the weather is good but inside is great, too. The owner/chef is gracious to come around to every table and see how your food is. The wait staff is friendly to meet your needs but never intrusive.
