What a fantastic restaurant that’s owned by a passionate and caring individual. By far the best dining experience we had during our visit in Little Rock.

Scallops were outstanding but, the salmon looked & tasted like a fried croquette. Service was very good.

Caesar salad was lettuce with Italian dressing (HORRIBLE) and I would not recommend the veal --was full of tendons which I could not cut thru and over breaded and the vegies were lupe warm Went for my wife's birthday and would NOT Recommend Brave New for anybody

We LOVED our dinner and the whole experience of dining at Brave New Restaurant. The food was exceptional and memorable. We particularly enjoyed meeting the restaurant owner/chef! Having Mr. Brave come to our table and all of the other tables was so special. We have told many of our friends about the Brave New Restaurant and will continue to recommend it highly!

Brave never disappoints! Once again, the food was amazing. We were still able to enjoy the seasonal heirloom tomatoes this late in the season. All of our meals were perfect. The service was exceptional. We will continue to return for any special occasions, or any other reason we can find!!

Brave New is our favorite restaurant in Little Rock. Everything that I have ordered there has been delicious and beautifully presented. The sushi grade tuna is incredible!!!! Our server was excellent, too. He was attentive but not hovering. We look forward to our next visit.

I can always count on a special meal at Brave. The setting is gorgeous, of course. The service friendly yet efficient and effortless. But it’s the food we come back for! Thanks again for helping me treat my friend to a fantastic birthday lunch!

This just may be the best upscale dining place in Central Arkansas. From the moment you arrive till you leave you are made to feel special. Not much I would change, except the Caesar salad, which did not taste like any Caesar I had ever had. Otherwise, a great experience.

Our favorite restaurant in Little Rock! It's a 3.5 hour drive from where we live, but we try to visit BNR whenever we are in town. The food is always good, and the service is outstanding. The waitstaff is well-trained, and the chef/owner is visible and tries to get to every table - sometimes more than once! There is a nice wine list with reasonable prices.

I had a special, which was a bone in lamb chop. It was mostly bone and very rare near the bone. My wife had a fish special which was good. The lamb was 45.00 and very little of it was edible. The drinks were good, but small. The service was very good. Atmosphere was very good. Desert, chocolate creme brulee was excellent. I should have ordered off the menu. I told the waiter about my lamb but he had no reply.

Excellent atmosphere; food was superb, but here’s a hint. They are a busy restaurant with food prepared once it’s ordered. When we go to Brave New we expect a beautiful long dinner date night. You should too. If you are hoping to stop in for a quick bite or if you have somewhere to go after dinner, you most likely will not be satisfied with the speed of the service. This is dining the way it should be- slow, relaxed, an experience. Dine outside by the River and take your time. Peter Brave will probably stop by to see how you are doing!

Great again. One of the best restaurants on a day in and day out basis in the United States. Consistent as a metronome. Rises to levels of greatness at times. I have experience food all over United States and always wow newcomers and out of town business guests with their food and service.

The duck and duck entree was excellent. The mushroom soup was very good. The weather was very nice for dining on the rear veranda overlook the Arkansas River and the evening lights of downtown Little Rock. I would recommend this place to anyone.
