We have Enjoyed going to Bravo in Mentor For a long time. Unfortunately this location is closed as of yesterday.
Our server was less than adequate. The customer should not have to ask for water or bread and oil. Our server did ask if we wanted a cocktail but never asked if we cared for appetizers. I told him I had a free appetizer card and he said ~ ok . He later came back and took our drink order. I paused and waited to see if he was going to ask us if we wanted anything else but instead I needed to tell him what we wanted to order for appetizers. He left us alone for a while as we were expecting someone else. Our other guest did not come unfortunately. Our server did not even ask if you were ready to order. We told him our requests for dinner.
It’s unfortunate he wasn’t very good but we will go back to another Bravo because we like their food selection.

We were there at 5pm on a Saturday and it was noticeably empty. Business picked up a bit by the time we left, but it was still quiet. Had a great, attentive server who hit that balance of being helpful but not in the way. Everyone had good food and was satisfied. The Mediterranean Veg salad is tremendous and, along with the bread for everyone at the table, was a fantastic meal. I'm actually craving it again, and look forward to going back for it in the future. Including a 20% tip for the great service, we spent about $90 for three adults and three kids.

Capreze salad was awesome. Although the lobster bisque was good it really wasn’t what I would like expect. There was no actual left buster in it & a few tiny shrimp.

Bravo is a reliable chain for Italian cuisine. My wife and I eat there with some regularity and have preferred dishes. We both really enjoy their eggplant parmesan and some of their salads.

First visit to Bravo. Our waiter, Clint was awesome. We got a flatbread and caprese salad for an appetizer. Both were delicious. My son and I got the chicken parm. My wife got spaghetti and meatballs. We all enjoyed our entrees. Definitely going back.

The menu was substantial and our server worked with us for several modifications. Nice, natural light came through the windows at the end of the day which was very pleasant. Food was good - although the side salad was a bit small for the price we paid. Other than that, no complaints.

We ordered ravioli as an appetizer that never came. The chicken parm tasted pretty salty. I haven't been to Bravo in a while but expected better.

Portions were small. Wasn’t keen on the sauce from my chicken parmigiana. Thought the sauce was a little too sweet for my palate. It remind me of tomato soup. Other than that, the service was awesome. The interior of the restaurant was beautiful and relaxing. The value of the food and drinks were pretty reasonable.

I went with a small group of ladies for a Mother’s Day brunch. I had suggested Bravo because my husband and I have dinner there. I was very disappointed and embarrassed that the menu was very limited with only three breakfast choices. I understand that Bravo may limit their menu on special occasions but it should have been noted on the website. Our reservation was for 10:00 am so we fully expected to eat breakfast. Three of the ladies ordered the French toast and it was cold. Cold French is not very good. A lady came to our table and asked how everything was and we mentioned the disappointment with the limited menu and that the French toast was very cold. She said that she would mention it to the chef. That may have helped the next person but not me. The lady did discount our check but I’m used to leaving Bravo very satisfied but I was definitely not this time.

Love the atmosphere here. Our food took a long time to arrive, but the manager comped us desserts before we even brought it to their attention. Food was delicious, and our server was very attentive, but not overbearing.

I used to really like Bravo - much more than that "other" Italian chain. But I have to say, the quality of their food has really gone down. We went there for my birthday dinner, and we were very disappointed.

Our waitress was outstanding. Unfortunately the kitchen staff was horrible!! The food arrived WAYYYYYY late. But the waitress kept us informed and checked in frequently to apologize so we remained patient. After our meals finally arrived, the manager came over to address the situation. Kudos to her and the waitress because I hadn't raised a fuss yet - maybe our body language tipped them off. We were pleased that they recognized a problem and acted. The manager treated us to desserts - yea. However one of the "Hot" chocolate cakes was still frozen! See kitchen staff again! I feel sorry for the waitress - she deserves a better team. The Manager did the the right thing, only to be undermined by the flunkies in the kitchen. I don't know what's going on there. But she'd be wise to fire them all.

This was a Birthday Celebration for 12 people for my Dad's 80th Birthday. Service was slow. I believe our Waitress had to many tables. The food was cold. My meal was ordered incorrectly and I had to wait for my food. This was unusual since we have dined here many times before. The manager did give us 20% off our our bill and did not charge for my meal which was nice. This was a nice compensation. But overall was disappointed since it was a special occasion. Was hoping everything to be perfect since I chose the location for dinner after much debate with my family.

I was a regular customer for 10 years at this location, but avoided going there the past 6 months due to poor service (even when the restaurant was empty). However, this time I was very pleasantly surprised with outstanding service from Ryan and a very nice introduction the the general manager. I will be back as a regular! An overall great experience.
