    Service was on point, I had the mediteranean salad with a salmon filet and it tasted fresh and crisp. I was on my lunch hour for work and was in and out within 52 minutes.

    The drinks were good, as was the table bread and appetizer. My wife's Chicken Parm...I could tell the pasta had been around awhile, it looked dry and was rubbery. The Chicken itself I know was made fresh. My Pasta Bravo was good. For a $98 bill, I would have expected better.

    I was expecting much more and was very disappointed. Food was, at best, comparable with Italian fast food chain Olive Garden. Waitress was forgetful and inconsiderate. Food was mediocre to poor .. certainly not authentic Italian. Table was dirty and sticky. Prices way too high for such a poor eatery. Never again. Terrible experience.

    Our hand-crafted cocktails were excellent as were the crisp Chopped Salad and Lobster Bisque. Their Eggplant Parmesan is excellent as was the Salmon entree. The booths look to be tired and in need of updating.

    Had a great time with my date but waited almost 10min for a server to stop at the table. Lousy beer list, bread was left on the table with no utensils. Shallow menu and the chicken was dry and fatty. Never again.

    Lasagna was terrible: warm at best, hardly any ricotta or meat sauce as advertised. Served within 5 minutes of ordering. Had to ask for grated cheese and some marinara sauce. Waitress was incompetent: never checked on us. Had to ask for her 4 times. Put take home boxes on floor and then denied it when we told her we wanted clean boxes. Never conversed with us again. No thank you, nothing. We will NEVER eat there again and suggest noone else eat there.

    Family of 8 ordered, 1 persons order was not placed, another persons was taken by another waitress. The 2 family members plates were delayed 23 minutes from everyone else’s. When the plates arrived, the chicken parm plate had the chicken parm burned. Notvto mention the fact that the rest of us waited to eat until the other 2 plates arrive which we then ate our meals very cold. The sad thing about the situation is that the manager never came over to apologize for the mistakes, delay or condition of the burned chicken parm plate.

    My guests arrived before me so they were seated at a table. We asked to be seated at a booth for more comfort and they were happy to please. My husband didn't care for the salad dressing on his house salad, and my guest had requested dressing on the side which didn't happen. My husbands salad was returned and we weren't charged for it. I had the Italian wedding soup and it was delicious. The dinners overall were good and enjoyed by all. I also had a discount coupon for dinner which our server forgot to include on the bill so he had to redo it and give credit to the charge. I would definitely return to try again.

    The server was either new or distracted. He had to be reminded several times for things we'd asked for. He was very pleasant, but not the "together" "on his game" kind of server I would expect at this price point. The food was exceptional. It was lovely!

    Selected this place as we felt like having an Italian dinner for a change. We’ve been on a road trip for several weeks and just wanted something that was familiar to us. Bravo’s decor pays tribute to old Rome. The menu is your regular Italian fare. A little higher priced than what we see in NY. I ordered the veal parmigiana. I was surprised and very pleased with both the portion size and taste. The veal was extremely tender. My wife ordered the eggplant parmigiana and said it was delicious. The sauce was delicious as well. We felt like we were in a fine Italian restaurant back home in NY. If you’re looking for a fine Italian dinner, this is the place to go in Albuquerque.

    For Mother’s Day, we had a reservation for dinner and we were seated within 15 minutes of our reserved time. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive despite being busy and overwhelmed. The kitchen had a melt down and our food was late coming out. The chicken was dry and the sauce has started to separate, it looked like the dish had been sitting under the heat lamp for a while before it was presented. Several dishes of pasta were either over or undercooked and even after being sent back were still meh at best. The waitress offered a complimentary dessert which we took her up on but the manager never came by to address the shortcomings from the kitchen. It was a really big disappointment for dinner. I was very surprised because this location has in the past had excellent service and food.

    We waited 45 minutes before waitress took our order. Waitress was distracted by visiting with another table. We waited 15 minutes after our appetizer was delivered for napkins and silverware. She was sarcastically nice after I got up and approached her at the table she keep visiting, to ask for napkins. The experience was not good. I hate to complain, but I’m not sure how we should have handled the situation. At the very least, waitress needs additional training.

    Busy day. Food prep backed up. No AC. Doors open. Restaurant way too warm. Temperature issues with martinis and espresso. On the bright side, all dishes ordered were extremely tasty! Staff were really professional under difficult circumstances. And comps were made for items that did not meet Bravo's standards.

    It's really great to see Bravo opening the south, east and patio areas. We were seated with 5 min of arriving and 10 minutes before our reservation, made while walking to the entrance. We had French toast & the Fra Diavolo with shrimp. The fresh fruit was a nice compliment to the French toast, which was cooked to crunchy perfection. The spicy red sauce was excellent, in the pasta entree, just enough to not need to add red chile flakes, although sufficient to get my sinuses running. Great service, hot bread, frequent beverage refills. Top notch experience today!

    Reservations were not honored upon arrival. We were seated 50 minutes after our reservation. The host who rolled her eyes and sayed “ummmm ummmm I don’t know what to tell you” when she was asked about approximent wait time… Sadly that attitude and rude behavior will be the number one reason we will not be returning. We then had to rush to eat to make a prior engagement!!!!!

    Our waiter was awesome! I didn’t catch his name but it’s the best service we have had in a long wild. Kept us stocked up on bread, salads came out fast, entree’s came out fast, we had coffee and dessert after. I was so happy to have this experience. Thank you Bravo! We will be back next weekend. :)
