Bravo is one of my favorite places for lunch with friends. They have added several new dishes - I had some great spaghetti bolognas (sp?) which was very good.

We had reservations for my husband's birthday which I told the restaurant about. Our waiter was inattentive and rushed. After he brought our pasta he never came back to offer us grated cheese. It was hard to get his attention. Our experience is usually good at Bravo this time it was not. Food was rushed out before our soup and salad was finished and the meal was lukewarm

We'd not been to Bravo in several years, felt like quality had slipped. Went tonight and found the food back to standard. Bread not top notch, but all starters including shrimp were well done. Mains were right sized and tasty. We all left full. Not 5 stars, but good solid execution and service.

This is my fourth visit to this restaurant in the last couple of years. Twice for our work holiday dinner and twice for special occasions with my wife. The food is excellent, as is the service. The value is also very good. We really enjoy the quiet atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant for good Italian dining.

Overall the dining experience was satisfactory. Waiter either was taking care of to many tables or easily distracted. We had a party of 7 and 2 ordered wine and we had to remind the waiter to bring the wine. Food was good.

It was nice to see Bravo so busy. Our server, Brendan or Brandon did a great job. The soup and entrees were hot and the salad great as usual. The manager came buy several times to fill our water glasses and ask us how every thing was. Our area was extremely busy with large groups and I could see how that extra help by the manager was appreciated by all of the servers. We try to eat at Bravo once a month!!

Save room for dessert! Pretty good portions for the cost. Accidentally knocked over my full wine glass while moving bread basket for server. While they brought extra napkins and helped clean up, i didn't get offered a partial refill or anything. Food was delicious though!

This is an excellent restaurant. Everything was done the way it should have been done, exceptional. All of the main categories (service, and the food) were excellent. I have been to this restaurant several times and I plan keep coming here many more times. I would highly recommend this excellent restaurant.

For a great evening of dining pleasure, you can't beat Bravos. The ambiance grabs your attention immediately and the prompt and friendly service complemented by excellent cuisine rounds out the package...and the cost won't bankrupt you.

The roasted vegetable salad was mostly chopped lettuce. The pesto pasta was pretty cold when it was delivered to the table, and the chicken I added was dry. The bread had definitely been reheated as it was pretty dried out. The mgr. did comp the chicken, but we felt the dinner was mediocre.

I go to the Leawood Bravo every year when I'm in KC. High ceilings and lots of windows make it open and inviting. The dining area is spacious enough that the tables aren't crowded together and you don't have to listen to a neighbor's conversation. The head chef is new since my visit last year but the quality of the food has not suffered at all. Check the menu on line before you go; it will save you time trying to make up your mind when you get there. And bring an appetite, portions are generous. All very reasonably priced. The wine list, while small, has a nice selection. Waiters are attentive and helpful. Definitely recommend.

Our poorest service experience ever at this location. Slow, inaccurate, sloppy. Quite sure it was an aberration. 90 minutes of astounding ineptitude.

I brought a friend for her birthday. I was sooooo disappointed that they were out of lobster bisque at 11:45am. I had really talked it up to my friend and they did not have it available. ( didn’t get a shipment in or something) I was really disappointed. The server did an excellent job.

Not good. I've given Bravo several good to excellent reviews. This by far was our worst experience. Something's changed and unfortunately we're going to find another Italian favorite.

The food was delicious. The lasagna and crispy ravioli were my favorites. One of my children’s orders was wrong...twice. They did eventually fix it but my daughter ate off of everyone else’s plates until they fixed it and then wasn’t hungry when food finally arrived. Waitress seemed to disappear frequently.
