For an evening when there were few tables occupied we got no attention. Had to track our server down more than once to order, to get our bill, etc.
Food was so-so; chicken was tough and the wine mediocre.
Lots of other Italian restaurants to choose from - it'll be a while before we return

It took more than an 1.5 hrs to get our food and when we did two people still had to wait and all one ordered was soup. We left 3 hrs after our arrival and we did nit sit around and chit chat after dinner. Pork Chop was not cooked well, meat was still semi done. I have always been a Bravos fan since they were at the original place on Montgomery Road not too far from Sans Club. I am not sure i will be returning. I was disappointed and so was my family.

Mother’s Day was a Zoo. Fifteen minute for table. Waitress was terrible or exhausted. Not the norm for sure as I have been there numerous times.

We diner at Bravo frequently but this trip was on Mothers Day. Of course it was packed and of course it was very loud. You have to expect that. But considering the day, our server was better than outstanding. The food was good but the kitchen was slow.

The food was tasty but our food took over one hour plus to get to table. Our waiter was avoiding us and we were without drinks for a long while. We were told our order was coming out by one of the managers but no apology or explanation why it took that long. I would not recommend and would not go there again. Our experience was very negative and a nice family dinner was ruined

Brunch is back at Bravo and we happy to try it. I had the eggs and bacon, and when I ask for over easy I was told the eggs could only be scrambled. They were good eggs, but I have to say I would really prefer to order. The bacon, which I asked to be crispy fell short of really crisp. The plate came with toast but when I asked for jelly, someone had to run to the store for it.
Service was great, iced tea was very nice. My husband loved the coffee. Overall a great breakfast at a lovely restaurant.

Service was good. It seems like quality has gone down. I ordered an espresso and it was served as a small cup of coffee. Also not sure if there was an issue with the dishwasher but the server tried to hand me back the cutlery used for an appetizer to reuse. Maybe the didn’t have enough clean forks. Very strange

We had a fantastic visit for happy hour, then to dinner. The food was very, very good -- especially the steak. We had a service issue with getting and paying our check, but the manager followed up with a phone call, to get additional information. I have edited my initial review, after speaking with the concerned manager.

This is one of our favorite places to visit. Consistently excellent food and service. For a chain operation their pastas are the closest to all of my experiences on 48 business trips to Italy. Al Dente pasta with relatively light sauces, not burden with tomato sauce.

Brought a group of 12 for lunch, and was given a private room. Server was very attentive and food service was excellent. All the appetizers and entrees were served promptly to keep us within our alloted lunch time. Having dined at this Bravo many times, I can say this was the best service and food combination in a while, and I hope to see this continue, as prior experiences have not been as good. Great job team, would highly recommend for a business or family lunch time with this staff and chefs.

Bravo was ONCE one of my favorite go-to places. The food quality was poor and the one child's plate ordered, came 15 minutes after the rest of us were served. The bill was almost $300 with tip added. Sadly, we will not be coming back. VERY disappointed!!!!

The food is good, but some food selections have been modified. For example, we were told (after the fact) that the chopped salad is not on the menu any longer but still available. I like the chopped salad and would have preferred it over the Caesar salad. Also, the chicken scallopini doesn't come with the feta any longer but for a 75 cent upcharge, you can still get it. Also, something we weren't told at the time of ordering.
