Bravo was the perfect place to celebrate a memorable milestone for our family. The staff was very warm and attentive, not to mention polite. Everyone in our party of 18 enjoyed their meal. The Veal parmigiana was spot on. we really enjoyed ourselves and Bravo helped make it a day to remember.

This last time we went was meh. We were celebrating our 6 year anniversary and the food was okay, the waiter was okay, no extra effort, it was a Saturday night and we had reservations at 730 PM, got our table right away, but it was all meh. The selection was limited and no coffee available. We are the parents of twin 4-year-olds so when we go out we like to be a bit pampered. Didn't get that feeling this time. We will try again next year, might have been just an off night.

In order to get the comment section I had to rate the restaurant, but there was nothing to rate... I made reservation and when we arrived at there, showed the host my phone with the open table reservation and she said - "oh, our website was messed up and it kept taking reservations when we had none, so this reservation is not valid"... If you would like to wait, we can seat you as soon as possible... So,, not at all a good experience, especially since this was first time using Open Table.... DISAPPOINTED IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT

This is the second time that we have dined at BRAVO. We had reservations and it still took us ~ an hour to get our food. Service was really poor, mixed up entrees.

We found Bravo online. We were unfamiliar with the area and were in search of a pre-race pasta dinner. We had reservations and were seated on time on a Friday night. The food was good. The wait staff was friendly and professional. The meal was timed nicely. It was a good experience and the athlete in our group had a great race the following morning.

We have eaten here multiple times. Best to go when there is no crowd. Late afternoon but before 6pm. Food quality is inconsistent but good when there is less pressure on the kitchen. Service is always polite but again suffers at peak times. We will go again with these things in mind.

Food and service were very good.....place was almost empty [a typical Tuesday eve?] Ordered Shrimp Scampi and salad...both were served as ordered. Minor point....bread accompanying Scampi dish was stale as was the bread served pre-meal.

The food we received was cold and one entree was incorrect. The steak was very salty and the other meals had little flavor. The desserts we received were still frozen and flavor was okay. Overall, there are other Italian places that have much better food for the price. The quality has gone down significantly downhill and we will not be planning to return. Our server was awesome.

Bravo's is one of our favorite restaurants in the Fredericksburg area. The food is always good and the serving staff friendly. The menu offers a wide variety of choices including pastas, pork chops, grilled salmon, and shrimp. Their loyalty program is very generous. We often receive $10 off or a free appetizer. Look forward to our next visit!

I made a reservation for a group of eight, and Bravo put us, unasked, in the private room. That was so perfect for us! The table in that room is round, so everyone could hear everyone else easily. The food selections, taste, appearance and value were spot on. Every time someone recommends a place to eat, I tell them to try Bravo.

Bravo used to be one of my favorite restaurants to come to. It seems like a totally different restaurant. The service isn’t the same. The cleanliness isn’t the same and the food isn’t prepared as well as it usually is.

We showed up with a party of 7 when we only scheduled for 6. The staff was very gracious about accommodating us to a larger table. Our server tried to keep up with everybody's initial orders and then changes. Unfortunately one of them was incorrectly taken and had to be sent back. It took a little longer than the three minutes the server said it would. Noise was Extremely Loud due to a table with three small children, all who were being very unruly. Not the restaurant's fault, but it made for a difficult to have conversation. We very much enjoy our meals at Bravo's and will always come back for another fine meal.
