when you advertise on open table that lunch starts at 11 am, service, ie tea and hot bread should be available at that time, not 10 minutes after the opening. Just a suggestion.

The food was very good. We had reservations, tables were empty and we still waited almost 30 minutes to be seated. I think they needed more help.

We reserved a table for a Mother’s Day lunch. It was crowded due to the occasion but, the crowd began to thin out around 2:00. Out reservation was for 1:00. The server took our beverage order, brought waters and bread. We ordered wine and salads. Our food arrived before our wine and salads which was awkward getting everything at once. We requested additional bread, that never happened. We ordered desert, coffee and cappuccino. The coffee arrived cold and I was brought a coffee to hold me over until the cappuccino arrived which was almost 10 minutes. I then asked for sugar, I was brought Splenda and other sugar substitutes. I asked if I could have “sugar” this took another 5 minutes. The server returns with a small container with sugar. Besides the poor service, the food is horrible for the price. We will never return.

Delicious food however we went during graduation/prom/mothers day season so it was very crowded and there is no where to sit and wait for your table. Plan ahead!

With a reservation we still had to wait. I was under the impression that we would have a table at the time we reserved it for.

The service was ok, i was offered cheese for my dish and the gentleman never returned and we had to ask for refills on our water .

The food was good especially the appetizers.

My family often gets together at Bravo because it is convenient, they take reservations, and the food is good. We were a little disappointed in the service this time, but it was "prom" night and our poor waiter just simply had too much to do to accommodate everyone. Seems like Bravo should have someone roaming around to make sure everyone has what they need? Will definitely be back.

Had the bartender for our waiter. He didn’t share specials of the day, but was attentive as he could be based on the fact that he seemed to be assigned a few tables in the dining area as well.

My only issue with this visit is the high cost of liquor. Just for “bottom “ shelf scotch (and not much of it) it was $7.50. Food and service however were excellent.

We are prior customers of Bravo and returned to see what new items were on the menu. The appetizer Shrmip Napoli is a tasty dish I would recommend. Our entree's were standard fare. I had Lobster Ravioli which seemed more like Shrimp Ravioli. Maybe the chef got my order confused?? My wife had spaghetti with meat balls. Unfortunately the meal had no special taste that would have me return to Bravo for another try, other than the appetizer.

Absolute worst service I've ever had. Restaurant was crowded or super busy when we got there. It took the server 20 minutes to get just glasses of water to the table. The order was wrong when we got food, but we didn't bother to comment because we didn't want to have to wait any longer than we did to finally eat.

Overall the meals were ok, despite being incorrect. Ambiance was nice, and the restaurant as a whole is great. But if we ever go again, we'll be on the look out for the server we had and avoid her like the plague

I have enjoyed going to Bravos for many years. We all truly enjoy our meals and will always come back. 3 of us had the awesome lasagna and the 4th had the steak and mashed potatoes. Again all four dinners were awesome and we have never had a bad meal at Bravos. Next time I will get the awesome Pork Chops I haven't had those for years and looking forward to them. I fully recommend Bravos!

Went on a BOGO Sunday night. Restaurant pleasantly full. Server took a while to greet us - was busy on computer. 'Fresh' foccacia bread was crisp and dry rather than soft and moist. Love their dipping oil! My wife had a specialty spaghetti which was tasty but small in portion size. I had their signature lasagna which seems heavier on the cheese and lighter on the beef than it used to be. Each of us had a glass of wine where their placido chianti was quite good. The server finally ran my club card at my seeming insistence. Including tip, $45 for a meal which I consider a moderate price for two. I will be back!

We were placed at a table right next to the serving station and couldn't hold any conversation over the noise. When asked to move our waitress walked away without a response. At which point we left and went to another restaurant. Overall it was a poor experience.

The food was good, service was very poor. Wait staff never came to the table. We received our appetizer and completely finished it before we got our first Bread Basket or drink refills. We had to stop another waiter waiting on another table and to assist us with drink refills and bread.
