The only concern ...we had looked at the menu beforehand & knew what we wanted to order but when we got there it wasn't on the menu other than that it was great!
My suggestion is to keep the Turkey and Chicken sandwiches on the menu they're delicious!!

The only thing I like was the reservations via Open Table. It took a while to get our drinks (2 waters and a child's milk). When our food came (arrival time was good), our son had a HAIR in his food. The server that was distributing the food apologized and took it back because the food hadn't even hit the table yet. Our 10 year old had to wait for what seemed like forever, which as parents we tried to wait to eat bc it didn't seem right eating when he had no food. Our waitress came back to apologize and said the food would be on the way. The food arrived, we all ate, and it was really good. However, we had to ask for refills after being empty for a while. In addition, a manager did not stop by and I'm just noticing that the kids meal was not discounted (we assumed it would be being that the food didn't hit the table so the hair clearly was in the food prior to its arrival). I wanted to enjoy a small celebration dinner for my new position, but I ended up just taking the food to go. I have never had a bad experience here, so I was really bummed at this point. I'm not sure that we'll return to this location.

I went for a business meeting and it was a great place to do just that. We were able to have great conversation, the food was wonderful, and service was great. I'm sure we will return for a future business meeting.

Maricia & her trainee, Ashton were absolutely phenomenal. Anytime they were within distance of our table they were willing to stop and make sure we were okay. The manager also came by our table to say hello and to ask if everything was okay. The young lady at the front as the hostess was wonderful and had such a vibrant and welcoming spirit. I love this restaurant and will be coming back!!

I ordered the pork chop. It was really good. They over seasoned the green beans. Too salty and I have high blood pressure. I had to force myself to eat them.

Our waitress did a good job. Could have been a little bit more cheery.

Overall, I will come back and recommend to others.

The front didn’t see my reservation and I had to reach out about my “no-show”. Opentable is a super easy platform. Host just have to pay attention.

We’ve eaten at this Bravo location several times and we’ve never been disappointed. On this particular visit our waitress Alisa was excellent- she was very cordial, professional, patient, checked in just the right amount of times and did not have to be reminded about anything. Our food came out super fast, was fresh and tasty. Bravo is always a staple!

Great food and great atmosphere. However, this was my one-off experience at BROVO my meal started excellent waiter was very attentive then once he was sat again and once and again it was like we didn't exist anymore. Food was not to my typical taste I'm not sure if its because I had reservations early, but it was just not the same. I will still return I'm just hoping for a better experience next time around.

My only complaint is that they changed their house Merlot. It used to be Parducci. This new one is ordinary to unpleasant. I love their organic beef/pork meatballs. You can taste the difference. I want to try the vegetarian version. I don’t do turkey or chicken in my meatballs. They give you a reasonable amount of pasta, but not excessive. I have a good appetite, and sharing a Caesar Salad was almost a push to finish my meal. Likewise,the bread isn’t worth the carb. I have to make a note of that.

We had a lovely evening. With our son from North Dakota and Greensboro friends who not eaten at your restaurant in several years. Our son had Lobster Ravioli, my husband had spaghetti and meatballs and the rest of us had the delicious grilled salmon salad. We were very pleased with the quality of food. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. Yup...can’t wait to come back.

Because we are Italian, friends give us gift certificates to BRAVO, thinking we would like it. We have only been there twice and have been extremely disappointed in the food. The ambience is wonderful, but the food has a long way to go to be quality Italian. The dipping bread was AWFUL, nothing more than gummy rolls and the calamari was nothing more than frozen strips taken out of a bag and undercooked. The waitress was very inexperienced and confused. She didn't even have the dessert menu on her person and couldn't remember all six desserts. Perhaps it is fine for American diners who don't know real Italian food, but nowhere near acceptable for those who know how this type of cuisine should taste.

All dishes served were well prepared and delicious. However, you would thing the servers would have some basic understanding of how to serve a bottle of wine - not the case for us.

It was great. However, our server forgot to bring us bread, refill our water or take dishes off the table. Normally I’d look over it but there weren’t that many folks in the restaurant so I’m not sure about the delay.

I am so impressed and excited! All of the pasta can be substituted for gluten free. They will also create any dish you ask. And they certainly know how to cook food well. It was so delicious. We agree to come back more often for a delicious pasta fix. Our waiter did an outstanding job, too. Thank you!

Went for my boyfriend's birthday. The waiter was a little dry and didn't attempt to connect. He did bring out dessert for my boyfriend's birthday--that was sweet.

Salad was weepy/soggy. Menu changed a while back and I think they made other changes at that time...not saying the menu is necessarily bad but that seems to be when something shifted. This was for a business lunch meeting...just ok. We used to come to Bravo often for their great Happy Hour...unfortunately they drastically changed that so it is not even on our radar for that anymore. Really not on our radar at all. Too many other GREAT restaurants in Greensboro to go to Bravo.

We could definitely tell the lasagna isn’t homemade anymore. What a shame when quality is lowered I would rather pay more to keep the great quality they used to have
