Found chicken bones and old chicken in my chicken salad. Very disappointing. It’s a lot of money for how low amount of food you receive.

Interesting that we were told we could get half orders of an entree and then were charged full price. The noise level is rediculous,

Went for lunch when opened and the food was slow, cold and the waiter was non-existent to even tell him. I have never been to a resturant that tries to portray higher end that he doesn’t even ask us how the food was, especially when you don’t eat it all. Overall, disappoint and why we do not visit but once a year, or take business associates.

Service was slower than I would have anticipated for the price of the food. Menu was very limited, in my opinion. I get that it is Italian cuisine, but it was surprisingly without variation. No antipasti, way too much emphasis on pasta. Atmosphere was nice tho, for a Sunday evening.

Make sure the waiter can hear what you are ordering. I got the salmon diner instead of the salmon salad. I ate it just the same, it was just ok. The place really needs some fabric to quiet things down.

The new menu appears to have less items on it. The Chicken Parm was not crispy. We were not offered grated cheese with our meal.

The night we were there service was running a little behind but, nothing outrageous. Food is always good quality. My personal preference is that the noise level is turned down a notch or two.

Our server forgot about us once we paid our bills, e.g. we were still visiting but really wanted refills of our water glasses.

My family and I will definitely be back here. All of the workers were very kind, hostesses, servers, etc. The food came out very quickly for us going there at 6:30 on a Friday. The food was delicious!

The restaurant is visually appealing. The staff did their jobs well and were pleasant, couteous and helpful. But, the taste of the food was ok; not bad, not great, just ok.

As usual, good food and quick service at a reasonable price. Their gluten free offerings make our GF friends happy and I like seeing the calories on the menu.

We were greeted by the hostess and we were seated right away. Our waitress was outstanding. She kept an eye on our table to make sure we had bread, water, and lemonade until our food arrived. The food was hot and delicious. A great experience!

We made a reservation, for 5:30pm before a concert at 8:00 pm. Plenty of time, right? Wrong. We ordered grilled chicken salads, only 4 of us. Our food took over an hour, and then waited another hour for our bills. We didn’t leave until after 7:30. Salads! No drinks, no appetizers, nothing too difficult. No one refilled any of our drinks
, waitress struggled to even run our cards to check out. My chicken was extremely dry on my salad. Will never be going back or recommending them again.

Service was slow. Food was not real warm. We had 10 on our party. Everyone got their food but 1 and hers came when we were just about finished. Very disappointed.

We were there for an occasion, and some of our party was just dropping in, several others didn’t show up. The restaurant and our server was very accommodating to us. We were there on a weekday evening.

I was happy to see Bravo brought back a few popular menu items that were unwisely removed after the change in management. Now, if they’d only bring back their Prosciutto Burrata pizza!

We enjoyed truly outstanding service on this visit. Our waiter truly went beyond expectations. Our food arrived in a timely manner even though the restaurant was unusually busy for a Wednesday. Very happy with this visit!

Service was very slow. It was Red, White and Boom, not busy at all and it took 20 mins to get waters and tea. Kids were served adult sized drinks and charged for them, but got kids meals. We had to inquire about the $9 extra charged on the bill. Overall it took 2 hours and it shouldn’t have! Not impressed, will probably not return.

There was my husband, my son and myself. We had a gift certificate from Bravo’s that was sent to us due to a previous bad experience at the Lennox location on Olentangy Road. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs, which he said was good. Then my son and I ordered the filet mignon which came with a side of mash potatoes and a side of asparagus. I ordered my steak medium and my son’s was suppose to be rare. I also asked that my asparagus be cooked soft, not crunchy. Both steaks came to the table and they were well done and my asparagus was still crunchy. So the waitress took the steaks back to have them recooked. I did let the waitress know that I do always order a filet meal for my two dogs to go. I let her know she could use one of those steaks that we could not eat and wrap it up for me to take home for the dogs. Then both steaks came back. My son’s was fine. However mine was rare and my asparagus was crunchy. I let the waitress know. She took my plate back in hopes they might cook my steak medium on the third try. Then the waitress came back and said they could not cook asparagus soft. I asked hid she spoke to the sous-chef or the chef. She said they all said they could not. I let her know that they could. That I order it that way every time. Then the manager came. I explained to her that evidently her cooks could not cook vegetables soft. Then I was on my third time of having my steak cooked. I do have to say the waitress tried to make the best of a bad situation and was very sweet. When I got my third plate the steak was perfect and I actually got my asparagus soft. The food was excellent. I guess the third time is a charm. I just would have liked eating with my husband and son. Also they did not charge me for the first two steaks they incorrectly cooked and sent them home with me for my dogs. They said that was for all my troubles and apologized.

It was a lovely summer evening and we got to eat outside on the spacious patio. Service was excellent. I had my favorite salmon dish which was scrumptious. Very tasty bread with dipping sauce!
