Loving the Cacio e Pepe, my new go to light pasta entree, adding sausage & red chile pepper flakes.

Unfortunately our server was terrible. She took 15 minutes to take our order, we had to wait another 10 minutes for our drinks and then we finally placed our food order around 7:20. Our food finally came out 50 minutes later. We all had pasta dishes so it shouldn’t have taken that long and and the restaurant was not super busy at the time. Our reservation was at 6:45, we ended up being there until 8:45.

Too much dressing on grilled chicken salad. Will order it on the side next time.

Bravo is one of those dependable restaurants that always seem to have good food, good service and the ambiance is pleasant. It's true that I am a senior citizen and tend to visit during off hours but I still cannot ever remember going to Bravo and being disappointed.

I love the atmosphere at Bravo and the fact that it's quiet. One can hear each other talk. It's elegant, but the booth tables are very shabby. They need refinishing badly. It really detracts from the rest of the restaurant. I ordered the entree of salmon and salad. The salad was drenched in dressing. too much. I wish I had ordered it on the side. The salmon was raw and not enough to be served as an entree. I had to send the salmon back for more grilling and it still came back raw. I prefer my salmon rare, but not raw. I was not asked how I wanted it cooked. The others in my party said the food was "ok." I'm sure I'll try it again.

While the waitress was trying hard to accommodate us, the rest of the service was horrible! The meal that was supposed to come with meatballs, didn’t. The meal that was supposed to come with shrimp, didn’t! The Bolognese sauce on the spaghetti was extremely limited! We would not go back again!

Service was very good. The food was good but not outstanding. The quality of the food at Trombinos is more to my taste

We are in town for the Balloon Fiesta and Bravo is near our hotel. Everyone thought the food was good and reliable. While nothing special, everything was well done and the service and ambiance made for a pleasant meal. A solid B.

We had a party of 8 for my daughter’s birthday. It was crowded due to homecoming but we had made reservations and were seated right away. It was about a half hour before they took our dinner order. The food did not arrive for over an hour. People we knew in another section of the restaurant arrived after we did with no reservation and were served and finished eating before we were served our food. Bravo is my daughter’s favorite restaurant which is why she picked it for her birthday. I was disappointed!

We had an awesome time. We were seated in a private alcove so were able to talk without shouting. Our server, Sam was the absolute best and the food was delicious!

No broccoli, couldn't substitute asparagus, no blue cheese dressing either? The pesto pasta dish was dry, and average at best, as was the lobster ravioli. The fillet minion was excellent, and the only plate worth having at this table, we thought.

It was good for a business meal with work associates. The food was not spectacular - with exception if the calamari which was excellent - just average. The service was very good and the atmosphere was nice.
