Decent but slightly overpriced food. Food was quite slow the evening we went but perhaps they were having a bad night.

We have been to this Bravo on several occasions with friends and we are always overly delighted. The lobster bisque is the best we have ever had and your pasta dishes are exquisite. The service is outstanding and the atmosphere very comfortable and inviting Many thanks and see you again soon.

Took my wife and kids here for Valentine's day dinner. Very prompt seating with a reservation. Food was excellent like always. However,the server seemed to be over whelmed. The server could not keep up on drink refills and bread as well as she forgot several times the extra request I asked for.

Prompt service and the Waiter was very complimentary. The food could have been a little hotter temperature wise, but good nonetheless. Since the restaurant wasn’t crowded I should’ve been able to sit in a booth.

Food was delivered warm at best. Warm soup. Calamari appeared half cooked; definitely not fried enough, Flavorless. Glad I had a gift certificate. I would never go there again. So many better choices. Burger King would have tasted better!!

My husband and brother in law got the $29 steak. My husbands was supposed to be medium and was rare-medium rare. My brother in laws steak should have been medium rare and was so rare it was cold. Blue-rare for sure. No water refills, no pre-bus. Disappointed as the location is nice and atmosphere is great too. Much rather go across the street to Firebirds.

Our family ate at a different location a few months ago and my daughter has been asking to find a location close to our home. The closest one is 26 miles away and her request for her special birthday meal after looking at menus in Washington DC and NoVA was to drive to Fredericksburg to go to Bravo. She loved her fettuccini as much as she remembered and my chicken parmesan was very good. However, two of the meals at our table seemed to be put under a heat lamp for an extended time with all sauce at the bottom and the pasta hard to chew. The options for allergies is very limited. The amount of time we waited for our server initially and between the meal and dessert was extensive. There was also no celebration done for our daughter's birthday. Overall it was disappointing for the group. My daughter will definitely look for other locations to try when we travel but not worth the trip to this one.

All in our party were impressed with the food. My pork chop was the most tender pork chop that I have ever tasted. They take reservations, which was great on Christmas Eve (w/o reservations it was an hour and a half wait). Tables are far enough apart that you don't feel crowded.

Bravo is one of our family’s favorite restaurants. We go there often for special occasions and also just to enjoy a night out with our kids. We have never had a bad experience there. The food is always excellent, the service is always top notch and we always leave there full and happy. We hope Bravo stays in Fredericksburg for a very long time!

Although we've been to Bravo many times in the past and have always liked it this past Sunday night was definitely an exception. Our waitress seemed disinterested in checking on our table as she disappeared for long stretches of time to the point we had to ask another waiter to help us when there was a minor spill at the table. Additionally we had been there almost an hour by the time our appetizer salads finally made it to our table. The manager stopped by and apologized for the wait and explained they were short staffed in the kitchen and that our main courses were ready but they didn't want to serve them on top of the salads. We asked them to go ahead and serve them immediately but then had to wait over 15 additional minutes until they served our meals and most of them were lukewarm at best by that point.

Maybe it was on off night but this was very disappointing.

The food was delicious. Everyone at our table had something different. The pork chop was tender and juicy; the glaze was perfect. The salmon was also very good but the portion size was a little on the small side. The one thing we didn't care for was the meatball appetizer. It was slightly dry.

Great food, but I was VERY DISAPPOINTED to find there was no Brunch menu, when the Bravo website clearly shows one. Wait staff told me they haven't served brunch since October. That's fine, but the web site NEEDS to be updated. I scheduled this as a birthday brunch celebration for my wife, and it could have been a disaster if she weren't so understanding. You can't promise something on the internet and then not deliver !

I enjoy the entree of Grill Salmon! Excellently prepared "blacken". One issue--the 9 oz glass of wine was a bit pricey; while Kim Crawford's sauvignon blanc is super tasty for my palate; $17 a glass in my world is "over-the-top". You might consider adjusting the price during lunch.
