We loved the Organic Chicken Meatballs over Pasta! My husband wanted a Chopped Salad which was not on the Menu but they happily made it for him! A great atmosphere & a great experience!

We always enjoy Bravo with it's great bar and very good appetizers, entrees and desserts. The restaurant is pleasant for conversation, yet lots of filled tables surround us.

The menu has changed is intended to be healthier. Therefore some cheeses & pastas that were originally in some of the traditional entrees have been removed. The chicken parmesan no longer the same taste

Good but the menu has changed and apparently the head corporate chef has too. Not as good as it used to be IMO.

Service was excellent. Never had to ask once for refills a plus in my book. George the manager stopped by our table and asked if everything was good, nice to see that concern for service and food quality.

Menu has shrunk to the point that there are very few choices anymore
Used to be we could ask for the Misti salad even though it wasn't on the menu. Now we were told no. Chopped salad also removed from menu.
Waitress disappeared for long periods of time and we were not offered fresh grated parmesan for our food.

My husband and I went for dinner and found the restaurant full with guests and especially
young people dressed to the 9's for their proms. We had no wait for our table and
service was great for our entire stay. My husband truly enjoyed his veal parmigiana and I
enjoyed the lobster ravioli. We used a very tattered, and probably very old gift certificate toward our tab and it was accepted without reservation. Overall, we had a lovely evening and will certainly go again.

I showed up to the restaurant on my Prom night, I gave my name to the hostess and she dropped everything to find me a table. They found us a wonderful table, the server came up after a few minutes and was very polite and fast. As the food tasted amazing, my girlfriend and I tried the Calamari and it tasted amazing with an amazing plate of eggplant parm. The environment had a very formal vibe, great place for a date.

We’d only been here once before after wanting to try it for months, (we’re fairly new to NM) and enjoyed it so much that we brought our daughter here to celebrate her birthday. She was just as impressed. Probably our favorite Italian restaurant that we’ve tried here so far.

We took my sister in law to dinner here and, while the ambience is great, the food and service was not too great. My husband got the wrong dish and had to wait for the kitchen to deliver what he really ordered. Meanwhile my sister in law and I finished our meals while he waited on his. My Caesar salad was okay but the bolognese spaghetti was disappointing—about a heaping tablespoon of meat. Spaghetti with meatball dish ordered by my husband had 3 small meatballs. My sister in law enjoyed her chicken Marsala dish. We ordered desserts, tiramisu and the special berry cake—both average. Tiramisu was soggy. Service was poor. Drink refills only happened when I asked. The last time I had dinner here I had the same disappointing experience.

We were a bit disappointed this time. The food was OK and the wonderful bread they usually have was definitely over baked - hard and dry. Our server was lovely - no complaints there. Hoping for more flavorful food next time.

The service was good from the very start and continued throughout our meal. We stayed and chatted a bit and hoped our water would be topped but it didn’t happen. I thought my Patsa Woozie was a bit dry but the lobster bisque hit the mark. My dates meal Shrimp Fra Diavolo was very good.

We enjoyed our appetizer of spinach-artichoke dip and the pizza crust bread that comes with it. The other bread for the table to go with the olive oil had too much seasoning for our tastes. The shrimp scampi entree was rather bland for that type of dish, but the grilled shrimp was well seasoned. I only wish that the aioli that goes with the grilled shrimp had been served on the side instead of on top of the shrimp because I wasn't a big fan of that particular sauce. Service and atmosphere were excellent.

Had reservations at 5pm and initially was seated in a corner, hostess saw my displeasure and quickly seated us in a booth. That is what I call a customer focused hostess. I will definitely return.
Food, service, was superior and at a good price!

I had dinner at BRAVO on Saturday with my granddaughters. The food was delicious and our server was outstanding. All of us loved the experience. One highlight: we were served a free sample of their chicken meatballs with pesto on polenta from the appetizer menu. They are amazing!
