BRAVO Cucina Italiana - Greensboro - Friendly Center
Always a wonderful experience and great food and service was exceptional!
Bravo is getting more disappointing each time I go. It took almost 2 hours for us to complete our visit there and not by choice. It was not busy. Many empty tables, tons of staff but our server would disappear for 15-20 minutes at a time. When we finally received our meal, it was apparent it had been sitting under the heat lamps for a long time. All the sauce had dried up on my lobster ravioli, my friends scampi was dry and it took 10 minutes for my friend to get mayo for her very bland turkey sandwich. Even The hostesses have even become unfriendly. A previous visit at around 1pm I asked for a table for 2 and there was a wait. So I asked if I could sit at the bar (the actual bar) and she told me no. Found that odd. Has Bravo changed hands??
I am ever so grateful to the wonderful staff you assisted my peers and I in surprising our company Director of Operations for lunch. The staff was friendly and helpful, the restaurant was clean, and we didn't wait long for our food. Definitely worthy of the restaurants namesake, BRAVO!!! Thank you
Awesome service as usual. Was impressed on how clean the kitchen is and to see staff cleaning was refreshing.
Very nice place that we would eat at again. We liked the looks of restaurant and the food was good.
The service and food was great. Only issue I had was wait time. I got their 15mins before my time and the waitress told me she would get us back the time we schedule. But I didn’t go back until 15min AFTER my time. I understand that it was Mother’s Day and it’s busy but I scheduled a time for a reason and expected to be back on time.
Service was mediocre. Had reservations and still waited 30mins. but I do realize it was a holiday. Food was great, but menu is a little pricey. I will go back, but not frequently.
Restaurant was two thirds full when we were seated at 4pm Sunday, Mother's Day.
Waited over 10 minutes after being seated before asking a nearby waitress who handled our table. She came back and said she was told it was her table.
Asked for ice water with lemons, got water but had to ask again for lemons.
Was not offered bread. Had to ask for bread twice, showed up after our meals did.
Ordered soup and an entree, both showed up together, delivered by another waitress who claimed I requested both at the same time. I did not and was not asked if I wanted both together.
This is one of our favorite restaurants but this experience was the worst we've ever had there.
It seems to be experiencing a lot of wait staff turnover and new employees are not getting any customer service training including how to take and handle food and drink orders.
Still willing to recommend but not if this happens to us again.
Food was amazing and the ambiance was fantastic. However, the greeters did not know what to do where reservations where concerned. I had put in a reservation weeks ahead of Mother’s Day. We arrived ten minutes early and wound up waiting almost an hour to be seated. Other parties (same amount of people) who were not on the reservation list (drop ins) were seated faster than us. When I inquired, I was provided some aimless reason that was not coherent. Why even have a reservation list if they weren’t going to utilize it?
As usual the food was delicious and the service was great. Had the grilled shrimp which was outstanding. I can't wait to go again.
I have always been a loyal fan of Bravo's, but something has changed. It is either the new chef or new owners. The service is very slow and while pleasant, the wait staff does not seem well trained. Have to ask for bread, forget to bring all the drinks. The food has really gone down hill as the new chef has changed recipes on a number of items. The Salmon was overcooked and the chicken dishes lacked enough sauce and had a bland flavor. I use to love the bolanegese sauce, but it is now different, in a negative way. Please get the previous management and chef back, or I won't be back.
My biggest problem was the wait time for our table. We had a 1:00pm reservation on Mother’s Day and we were not seated until after 1:30pm. I assume the restaurant over booked.
We went on mother's day so factor that in. Food was good, service great. They are better on s regular night.
Exceptional service from Lana and authentic pasta that was out of this world! Tiramisu made to perfection, not dry like most other places when it is served like cake. It was perfect proportions of rum, coffee, and mascarpone cheese. My ONLY complaint is the spices they use to grill the salmon were too salty. I had to wipe it off. Awesome salmon though!!!
We were very disappointed when we went for Mother’s Day brunch. Last year they had a good selection of brunch items. This year it was mainly the regular menu which has changed and not for the better
Brunch was delicious and a great value. I’ve told at least 20 people how much I enjoyed it....
Atmosphere is wonderful. But offered a Mother’s Day brunch menu with only 5 items. They were good but more variety would have been appreciated.
Our service was excellent. The waitress was attentive without being annoying. The atmosphere was pleasant and the food was impeccable.
My group came for our Prom dinner, everyone was very kind and the service was fantastic! We had an amazing time, definitely recommend!!
The food was great!! Truly enjoyed our dinner and our server Taylor was spot on! Definitely will come back when in Greensboro
The food is excellent and our waiter was top notch! The restaurant had beautiful decor and great aviance.
Food was horrible - we were embarrassed to take our guest there - used to be one of our favorites - what in the world happened??? Have heard friends say similar things about their experiences. Our waitress was wonderful!!
Great experience! Great service and food. Server kept our drinks filled.
We went to Bravo for my daughter’s graduation dinner. The reservation was for 8, but we had a niece & her baby surprise us, which increased our number to 10. Bravo was very accommodating! We waited less than 5 minutes for them to rearrange our table. We would definitely dine at Bravo again!
Great spot for lunch. Service, food, and ambiance all very good.
The food was great, and so was the service
Food was excellent, however; our server was absent practically the whole time. It took 20 minutes just to get our drinks and she never came back to ask us for refills. The food was Luke warm instead of hot, which tells me someone did not get it out to us after it was prepared soon enough. The food however was good,poor service though for the price.
The food was great and the service was fast.
My friends and I had the best experience celebrating my birthday! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I wish I could remember the servers name. She gave exceptional service and we all had a wonderful time.
I really loved the scenery and the music they had playing. I appreciated the service and hospitality. I enjoyed my food , I got the chicken parmigiana. The service was great , we didn’t have to wait long for our food and the food was very fresh . I would definitely go back to try other dishes!
The staff was very professional and responsive when we asked to be seated in the outside section. Our lunch did not take long and cane out exactly how we wanted it. The atmosphere was calm and relaxed and provided for a great birthday lunch with my mother. She enjoyed the food, staff and quality of service. I have been going there for years and will continue to recommend and invite anyone who loves Italian cuisine to go there.
Yes, the food and service were wonderful!
The birthday ice cream was special.
Great place, food, atmosphere, staff. We like coming on regular days and special occasions.
We always have the BEST experiences at Bravo. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Our server was Laura and she was delightful and attentive. We will go back again soon!
Food served was not as described on menu. Chicken caprese had no mozzarella cheese in pasta but chef remade with the cheese.
Julian, our server, was cordial, friendly and knowledgeable. Our meal was delivered in about 7 minutes from time of ordering. The food was delicious. In/out in 45 minutes after arriving 5 minutes late for reservation.
Everything was excellent. We would recommend anyone to give it a try.
We love Bravo. My favorite place to eat. I love the food, great atmosphere and always great service.
