    Great place to eat and hang out. Drinks and food are great. Service is wonderful... people were friendly and responsive to our needs. The only thing that needed work was the taste of the vegetables! Needed more flavor somehow. Too blah for me. Should have ordered the fries! 😬

    We chose Bravo Bistro because it is across the street from Trinity Rep. We informed the server that we had a showtime to meet. She made sure that we were not late. I would have rated the food good rather than very good had it not been for the seared tuna. It was outstanding. The mussels were good. Had the broth not been over salted, it would have also been very good to outstanding.

    Bravo Bistro is one of our favorite places to eat before a PPAC show. We let our server know we have the show and they always get us out on time. We enjoy the mussels, done either with a cream Dijon style or the Bravo mussels which is a tomato and chourice style. Both are delicious.

    Service was terrible. The restaurant was dirty and had a large puddle on the floor on the way to the bathroom that should have been mopped up. It was very dangerous having to walk through it to get to the restrooms. I had the cheese burger that was burned on the outside and less than pink on the inside. The people I dined with had the Ruben . The meat was extremely tough and chewy. Dirty glassware

    Brunch with friends before matinee at Trinity Rep. Service very slow; seemed to be short of staff. They had a special brunch going on upstairs which may have left fewer staff in dining room. Food was great, as it always is. The side of fruit accompanying our orders was slimmer than usual. We’ve been having brunch, or an early dinner, at Bravo Bistro around our Trinity subscription for many years! Food is always delicious!

    As usual, the pasta dishes were fantastic! The only disappointment is the Lobster Mac & Cheese is off the menu -- had to have Bacon Mac & Cheese, but it was also great. Had a unexpected add to the reservation (son's college buddy) and it was handled without a hitch. Bravo Bistro is an easy walk after an event at the Dunkin Donuts center.

    The food was good. I had a steak with broccoli. The steak was cooked to perfection (medium-rare) but the broccoli was lukewarm on the plate. My friends meals were all piping hot and delicious. The server was good, but swept away drinks before making sure we were finished.

    Three of our party enjoyed their omelettes and pancakes. Unfortunately, and egg white omelette came with a large partially cooked on beaten egg yolk, and extraordinarily runny egg yolk. The yellow part was hidden, and discovered about a third of the way through, when we were in too much of a hurry to send it back.

    Have eaten here several times without issue but was disappointed this time. Had seafood platter appetizer. Overdone bacon wrapped scallops, mini crab cakes but no crab, and 2 shrimp cocktail for 19.95? My burger was good. My husband had cajun Turkey burger but there was no cajun seasoning. Also sat upstairs which was cold and dark. So not sure we will be back.
