Table was ready for us when we arrived. Server was very attentive to our needs. Food was outstanding as always.
Our server was attentive and personable. The meals were excellent. With friends and had dinner after theatre. Have been here before and certainly would go back.
they had a fantastic 3 course meal option for restaurant week! You could not beat the price.
We went before AND after Trinity. First time for both of us. We enjoyed ourselves and will return sometime.
Mostly good food, but my veggie burger was pretty unimpressive. Great spot to go before a show at Trinity Rep, though!
We like going to the Bravo. Good service and good food. A nice variety of everyday food.
Always great service, staff conscious of theater goers and will accommodate service to your preference
Food has always been good Chicken francais was very tasty & pork chop dish delicious.
Will return again soon
Perfect for brunch before a game at The Dunk! Great place to meet a group.
Went here for NYE with my boyfriend it was very cozy and the food was great
Great restaurant, we went there for New Year Eve and it was a great choice. The food was great and the prices were very correct. The wine list was diverse and very affordable. We will return
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.
Great menu with lots of options. Excellent service. Good value. Delicious bistro food.
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!
Waitress was so helpful and friendly. She settled a brotherly debate on particular liquors by presenting them with a shot of each.
I love the vibe of this place, very relaxing but also feels high end. Food was outstanding!
Good food and good service- thanks for a nice evening!
Great meal as always. Our waitress was a bit slow.
Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. Atmosphere was nice. Would definitely go again
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!
big family party handled well
Great service, food and very convenient for pre-theater!
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.
Restaurant was great but no points given for open table so beware!
I very much enjoy eating here before every play I go to see at PPAC. Good atmosphere. Great drinks. Food is always good. Bread is warm and delicious. They graciously valet your car for free and hold it for the play too.
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.
Fantastic service, food was excellent - I recommend this as a must go for PVD
Thanksgiving dinner....very good food, great service!! Loved the ambiance....could go either casual or a bit more dressed.
Had Bloody Mary, massive chunks of peppercorns in bottom ( and I love pepper) but this was over the top. Showed it to Chuck, our waiter who said he didn’t make the mix
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.
It was amazing! My boyfriend and I come in every once in a while and it’s always good, our server Emma is an absolute sweetheart, she’s so amazing and she helped make the experience even more amazing than it normally is
Great little gem of a pub with good food and delightful service. Our waitress, Emma, was wonderful. Although we were full, the chocolate cake was not to be missed so we ordered a piece to take with us. So glad we did; it was DELICIOUS!
Wonderful place before Trinity or other DT event. They will hold your "Doggy Bag" take home food until after the theater.
Delightful server, delicious food, chic atmosphere.
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.
First time there. Service was terrific and food really excellent too. Price was reasonable for the quality and we all enjoyed the experience and will go back.
We were headed to Trinity Rep and time limited. Service was prompt but did not feel rushed. Food was excellent. Will go again!
