Mostly good food, but my veggie burger was pretty unimpressive. Great spot to go before a show at Trinity Rep, though!

What a wonderful meal in the beautiful upstairs room at Bravo Bistro! Started with poached pear salad. Beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. Hubby had steak bearnaise. I had scallops. Both were excellent! Sweet succulent scallops. Tender steak. Perfect sides. Amazing key lime pie and cappuccino to finish up. Although menu and wine list are a wee bit basic, everything is excellently prepared and presented. Bravo to Bravo. Definitely will be back!

We usually go here for Pre-Trinity Rep dinners - the service and food have always been good. This time I took friends (not pre theater) and the service was terrible. There were 5 or so empty tables but everyone was waiting an inordinate amount of time just to get seen. We had to wait at least 5-10 minutes between times the waitress arrived. (A simple glass of wine took 10 minutes) I don't know if they were short handed or what was the issue but it was embarrassing to have to wait so long.

Been to Bravo a few times but this time we were bringing out of town guests for a pre-theater dinner. Our server was quick and attentive. Food was delicious. They even let us keep our leftovers in their fridge until after the show!

It was my aunt’s 87 th birthday. We took her to the Christmas Carol. When I made the reservation at Bravo I asked if they would have valet service since walking is an issue for an 87 year old. I was assured that it would be available. It was not! The restaurant was very crowdeded in and noisy. We were squished in a table in the middle of the restaurant. The waiter was excellent. The food, not so good. Everyone was served except me. I waited for my chicken and the mashed potatoes were cold.
Couldn’t wait to get out of there. It was unlike experiences I have had in the past when I was a regular customer and a subscriber to Trinity.

Here for pre dinner theater: chose for closeness to theater and valet parking. Bonus : excellent food - salmon and salad were outstanding. Waitress was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Excellent service !
Valet parking polite and fast.
Overall a very positive experience!

My first visit to Bravo- excellent service and food. The ONLY thing I would suggest to the management is to have cleaners do a more thorough job on the walls, baseboards, and inside stall doors in the ladies room.
Valet service that allows you to leave your car after your meal until a show you are attending is over is outstanding!

Bravo never disappoints (although the busy-ness of the restaurant on this particular Saturday night did increase the noise level to a bit beyond comfortable). However, the food and the service were, as always, outstanding. Add to these positives that fact that free valet parking is offered and that your car can remain with the valet while you enjoy Providence events is simply the icing on the wonderful cake that is Bravo.

Had 4:00pm reservation for Thanksgiving dinner. The dinning room was so cold we had to keep our coats on the entire meal. Wait person was very pleasant and apologetic for the cold temperature. She was also an outstanding server. Turkey dinner was fair. Bill without tip was $70 for 2 classes of wine and a fair tasting turkey dinner. Not a bad price if surroundings were comfortable but they were not.
The downstairs was warm but we were not given that option. Very disappointed.

We were running late due to traffic, but they held our table for us and knew we were going to the theater so made sure our food came out quickly. Everything was wonderful as usual. It's my go-to restaurant when we have tickets to the theater.

I have never had a bad meal here. I sometimes dine here when I see a show at PPAC or Trinity Rep. I think it is great they allow you to come back after the show to get the dessert special on show nights. It is a nice way to break up your dining and have a place to discuss the show we saw after with coffee and dessert.
