BRAVO Cucina Italiana - Kansas City - Zona Rosa
the server was great and the food was also
As always the food was amazing however unfortunately our server was not. At first she seemed very nice but then apparently was double sat after we got there and it was all down hill from there. She would disappear for long periods of time leaving us with empty waters, voice her opinion about how annoyed she was that she was double sat, and then treated us as an inconvenience for the rest of the night. At one point she even rolled her eyes at my friends when they asked a question about the menu and then gave them an attitude when they took a second to decide. At the end she was annoyed when I asked her for our checks and asked if she could "keep the change" when we paid in cash that would result in her getting an almost 50% tip. We all work in the service industry so we know everyone has a bad night from time to time but our server clearly does not enjoy her job or making money. She truly missed out on some great tips that we gladly provide our fellow service industry people. Such a shame...
The new menu is wonderful. Everything we ordered came out perfect and tasted great. One of our favorite italian spots!
Great service and experience. Our server was polite and friendly, she even offered us a birthday treat on the house! The food was great but not actually hot when it came out.
It was a busy evening so food was uneven. Some food good, some not very tasty. Had to remind server to bring missing item from order. Spaghetti Pesto was so filled w pesto it was like a Christmas tree which made it pretty inedible. Did we complain? Nope. We could hear an angry exchange in the kitchen and I wasn’t about to send anything back!
We had lunch at Bravo the week before and it was delicious, so we’ll go back.... just not for awhile.
Well we love Italian food so a friend suggested we try it. The Fettuccine was excellent and the Veal Parmigiana was thin and tender so everything was delicious.
Daughter’s 16th birthday
First time being here and the meal as well as the service was some of the best!
Very good Italian cuisine with competitive prices. Staff was polite, professional and made very solid recommendations. Will definitely visit Bravo again to host guests!
Asked for lemon for water. Brought cut up lemon that was brown inside. Asked for new lemons, and brought more that didn’t look too much better. Otherwise the food was pretty good. A little pricey. Polite and professional staff.
Bravo meets and exceeds our expectations that are always at the high mark!
Great in every way.
The food is always good and our server did an excellent job. My only issue is with the paper tablecover. It's not a deal breaker, but I find it annoying since shirt sleeves often get caught on it.
Birthday celebration. Food and service were great!
Loved it about the birthday incentives the ice cream
And the $10 off for dinner!
Used to love getting the bottle of dipping oil as well!!!!!
Excellent service and food! Natalie was an excellent server and took great care of us. Our food arrived fresh and hot
I think it was over priced for the amount of food you got. also the flavors were not any better than olive garden. i was expecting much better tasting food. we also didn't get any bread sticks or other starters. i would go back but it won't be a place that i have to go to.
excellent service from waitress Kae. She was wonderful and showed lots of patience in explaining the specials as the menu changed the same day.
Pasta woozee very dry, 3 of 4 had it, it was not like I have had before.
Feel bad asi recommended it!
This was my first time at Bravo. I was very pleased from the first interaction with the hostess till the last. The entire staff, particularly our waitress Michaela, we're efficient and friendly without being intrusive. The food was wonderful. Our experience was extremely pleasurable. Definitely worth coming to again!
Started with a great merlot wine, good ceaser salad. Service was good. Entree rigatoni had very little chicken kind of disappointed with lack of protein.
Love the food and atmosphere. The waitress acted uninterested in serving us. Failed to refill our drinks when ran out. Did not offer grated cheese on top of entree which has happened in all previous visits. Did not box our leftovers or provide a bag to carry in as is customary there. Service has been very good in past, but last two have been less than stellar.
I was very happy with my experience here. We got seated right away, the waiter was so nice & respectful - always checking up on us, made jokes, very friendly. Our food was served very fast, overall just really nice
Great place with good ambience and food. Service was a bit slow at times but acceptable.
Will visit again based on my previous experience.
I indicated via the Open Table app that we were there celebrating a birthday, but it was not acknowledged by any of the staff.
It was delicious, and service was outstanding!
Our son received a free birthday dessert also
Shrimp Fra Diablo is a dish that should be a little on the spicy side. The last several times, it has no spice at all. Really disappointed... you have ruined a good dish for us that like our food on the spicy side.
Good food. Attentive Wait Staff. Met friends there and were able to converse, since noise level was very reasonable.
Had reservations yet they told us we had to sit outside because they were so busy. I was a parent to a kid going to a dance and was not happy with the fact they had a limited menu to order from and could not order off of the normal menu even after asking. I understand wanting to make sure the waiters are taken care of, but they should not be forced into a limited selection. And the waitress we had lacked any kind of respect on how you treat a customer. She definitely had no issue voicing her opinion on how you ordered your food. No bread until after we had our meals complete. Had to ask for lemons several times. Would not recommend.
I made reservation for a homecoming group. They asked me if I wanted a special menu and I said ok. However there were some kids that just wanted to order off the menu and they were not allowed to. The waitress was super rude to the kids the whole meal. We will not be using your restaurant ever again for upcoming events.
The server was outstanding by meeting everyone’s needs without hovering or rushing. The food was first class as usual.
The Marguerite pizza was divine! The service was excellent. Can't ask for more!
Over priced for what you get, won't go back we'll go to a real Italian restaurant next time
I'm saddened to say, the worst experience I have ever had at BRAVO. We made reservations for my mother inlaw's Birthday at 4:00. Restaurant was not busy at all. We were seated immediately however no one greeted us. After about 10 minutes, a gentleman came over and asked if anyone had taken our drink order. We replied no... He took our drink order, brought our drinks and took our order. Eventually, he brought over bread and oil. Dinner was lackluster. I ordered the cacio de Pepe which was dry and flavorless. Food and service were forgettable. We will not return.
Food was average. Vodka tonic was great, martini was OK, but service was extraordinary !
Service very slow. Server had tables outside and inside. Food warm, not hot. Won't return any time soon
We found the food to be delicious, however there was very little to choose from on the menu. An additional charge of $4.50 for a salad with a $18 pasta dish entree was too much.
Bravo does not disappoint, excellent food and service.
The menu has changed on some of favorites. The waiter we had did a great job of taking care of our group.
