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 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.
Wonderful as usual. The restaurant maintains required spacing between tables while making maintaining the ambience of comfort amd attractive design.
We love every dinner here! We can count on Peter Brave and his team .
Brave New Restaurant is the premier restaurant in Little Rock in terms of venue, service, and food quality. In addition, new electric overhead heaters have been installed over tables on the outdoor deck, which makes for a very comfortable outdoor dining experience, even in cool weather.
Went for lunch. Excellent food preparation, good medley of food options, very good salmon salad, meal served promptly. Recommend early arrival for the lunch meal window, late arrival may result in missing your preferred desert. Good coffee.
Understaffed after being closed for a week but the quality of food preparation, consistency of chef produced dishes and genius of Peter Brave in organizing outside and indoor dining makes this....THE place to go for lunch or dinner
I'm never disappointed in the food, atmosphere, and hospitality of this fine restaurant.
We have been several times in the last year it has always been a great dining experience.
Best Valentine dinner. The oysters were the best and so was the walleye. We could have made a meal out of the oysters they were sooooo good.
wonderful as always! amazing and perfect food
We went the night before Valentines. Food and service were great. They did a great job of spacing everyone out. While the restaurant was busy, it didn’t feel crowded.
We love Brave New Restaurant and go there especially when we have a special occasion. We went there for Valentines dinner and they did not disappoint! We had a great table with a view of the river and server was very attentive but inconspicuous. Food was outstanding as usual.
My favorite restaurant. Scallops wasi excellent (as usual).
Awesome!! The service was very professional, the food was awesome, and we felt comfortable during our dining experience.
Loved this restaurant
They make everything there including ice cream and roasting coffee.
This is a unique experience. They have a diverse menu and fly a lot of the items in fresh.
.......not cheap but very good
Had a beautiful family meal together to celebrate my birthday. It was a wonderful night!
A friend was in from out of town and chose Brave New. I had not had dinner there in a while, but knew it was a quality restaurant. The menu had a wide variety and there were also several specials that evening. Our food was excellent as was the service. And a chocolate creme brulee to end the evening - delicious!!
Great no problems
Good food, good company, good service, lovely surroundings. Perfect!
The food is always incredible. The service is always impeccable. Highly recommend.
Food is always good at Brave New. The seared tuna and walleye were outstanding!
It has been our favorite restaurant for the past ten years and we have never been disappointed with any food choice we made. I had the lobster roll for lunch yesterday and it was delicious. Can’t go wrong!,
This was our first time trying this restaurant and from the service to the food it was phenomenal! We will be back!
Our waiter was helpful and menu-knowledgeable. He made perfect recommendations and our dinner here was enough to make us want to return over and over.
Excellent service and food. This is one of our go to spots for a nice relaxing dinner
Wouldn’t go back. The atmosphere is terrible—looks like a Holiday Inn Lobby. The food was overpriced and mediocre at best.
Love the walleye excellent as always! The tuna was great too.
Always a good dining experience at Brave New. Friendly staff, good menu choices and an attentive waiter. Salads were fresh, inventive and palate pleasing and the atmosphere invited quiet conversation. A real gem of a restaurant that’s a little hard to find, but always worth the adventure. One of Little Rock’s best. Also a great place for celebrations.
Excellent in every way possible. The food has always been amazing. Peter and his staff make it worth the visit every time.
Brave New does an exceptional job with Oysters Bienville. First, nice-sized oysters. Cooked perfectly. Plump, juicy oysters beneath a broiled topping.
Secondly, I had the venison special. The venison was cooked to order, crusted with rosemary. A great flavor combo with Wye Mountain mushrooms, risotto cake, spaghetti squash, and sauteed spinach. I'm pleased to see Brave Bew branching out a bit on vegetable selections.
Great as always, food and service is always next level.
The waitress was super sweet and I believe either the owner or head chef came to our table to make sure everything tasted good! Will definitely be going back for another date night!
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!
