Have always loved this place. Gave lower marks because my spaghetti was lukewarm, not hot. Service and ambiance are excellent.

They have THE BEST Peach Bellinis that I’ve ever tasted...the PERFECT SUMMER DRINK!
Food is always good quality. We’ll be back when we go back to visit our son at OSU.

The food was terrific as always, we had a short wait after we sat down, but Crystal came over and took excellent care of us. We had a great time with her. Definitely would recommend Bravo, it was top notch as always.

Three main issues - they didn’t have our table ready when we went upstairs, we weren’t offered bread/service was average and then the elevator wasn’t working and two elderly people had to manage the stairs. Food was good and the staff besides our waiter were helpful but it wasn’t our best trip to Bravo. I’d probably recommend another Bravo location over this one.

Delicious food and fabulous, friendly service. Very accommodating and accurate with our many requests. Only small critique would be more notice of coffee refills and more dipping oil brought with bread refreshes. (“We lika da sauce!”) That said, our server was very busy. Overall great experience for a wonderful Mother’s Day meal!

We were heading to an event at the Schottenstein Arena and this was perfect. Everyone could find something easily on the menu, it was priced great and we were in and out. It's a big restaurant, loud and VERY busy.

Had a lovely dinner with our families the evening before our wedding. Our server was very nice and helped keep the wine flowing and the bread baskets full. The pesto spaghetti I ordered was delicious, and everyone was very happy with their entrees. Lovely space, great for a large group or date night.

There website was great and was very easy to make a reservation on. We where able to get our table right as we arrived.
The server was not the greatest; he was serving tables that came in after us and not us. Anyone we needed anything we had to stop him as he was checking on the other table.
The food was ok. I had the spaghetti which was dry and the sauce was on the bottom and way to much for such little pasta given. The steak my friend was also dry and not cooked right.

This was our first experience @ Bravo. We really liked all of our meals and desserts. (Party of 6). This was an excellent choice and close to the OSU campus. We will return again. Great food and service. Highly recommend.

16 of us had a family gathering for Easter. Since our parents died we do not get together as much as we use to. So around the holidays we enjoy going out and having a nice dining experience. Our dinner reservations were at 5:30 and we all arrived in a timely manner at the Lennox location. We had finished eating was having dessert when they brought us the bill. Our table paid a minimum of $800-$1000(includes 3 kids). We paid our bill along with good size tips. Then our “to go” order came. We had not been there 2 hours at that time. It was a little after 7:00. Then the general manager, Autumn, came and asked us to leave because they needed the table for another party. We were told we were welcome to move to the bar. I had made those reservations over a week ago and confirmed by phone yesterday that we would still be there. This is totally unacceptable given, the amount of money we spent and we had reservations. Perhaps Autumn could use some customer service training. I do not believe she is quite ready to be a GM. I always enjoyed this restaurant. However she certainly ruined my family’s experience. We were devastated. None of us have ever been asked to leave a restaurant. They just lost 16 future patrons and any of their guests. This is where I like to dine when I have large groups. Never again!
