This was my first visit. I opted for the New York Strip. It was cooked perfectly (medium rare) and delicious. One of the best steaks I’ve had in ABQ. Price was a little on the high side but didn’t mind do to the quality of the food and courteous and prompt service. Definitely will be going back.

I've been there several times in the past with a group and it was okay.
I haven't been for a couple of years and not much has changed my "ceasar salad" was just some romaine with some dressing. I also got grillrd chicken which was a small breast not cut up lying on the romaine, very disappointing for $11.00. I could have gone to Dions!8

All of our group enjoyed our dinner at Bravo. One of our delights besides the awesome cheesecake was our server Randi, who was attentive but not over-imposing. Thanks!

Out with husband and kids. We had a reservation and we were seated as soon as we walked in the door. Service was quick and our server was super sweet. Food was ok, def not worth what we paid. Will try somewhere else next time for Italian.

Made a reservation for outside on OpenTable. When we arrived the matradee said they didn't take reservations for outside as it was first come first serve. So she made us wait, even though there were two free tables outside. Then they seated two other people outside, who had just walked in without a reservation. UNSAT! Then, the logged us as a 'no-show' for our reservation. Sorry, but we're not accustomed to being treated like crap. And "restaurant management"... please don't explain your policy or what you 'think' went wrong in your reply. You have a disgruntled employee you need to deal with. I'm happy to provide you with the screenshot of the OpenTable reservation showing 'outside seating' as well as a copy of the bill to prove we were there. I just don't want to hear your lame excuses for why we were treated so badly.

Had reservations; first seated in area and told to pick a table. All tables were dirty with dust/dirt. We were only ones in area. No one came after we sat done and smelled like sewage! We got up and told hostess and she moved us to the side of restaurant with all other outside diners.

We weren’t offered anything for the 20 uncomfortable and smelly minutes of your.

Not enough servers. Only 1 for entire outside. Food was tasty; prep time was long but still very tasty.

Waited 15 mins with no service: we had to let them know we had not been helped. The food took a long time. My steak was over cooked, no flavor in my potatoes or fettuccine. They took along time for refills.

I have been here before and thought that the food was good. This time, it was not. My fettucine was bland and tasteless. My son's lasagna was not very hot or well cooked. Our waitress could not get us out of there fast enough and was glad when we left. Not a great experience. I see no reason to repeat it.
