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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
