We enjoyed a simple dinner of the flatbread and the house salad along with the wonderfully made Manhattans by Justin. Service by Cat was great. We always enjoy dining at Bravo.

Service was great and they did a good job of keeping distance between the tables. Most of the food was good, I really did not like the lobster bisque but didn’t want to bother anyone about it at this time, everything else was delicious. Would definitely recommend for a nice meal.

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.

Our meals were great (Bravo Pasta and Shrimp Scampi). The table itself was in sad repair and in desparate need of a good cleaning or a table cloth! The server was very nice and efficient. We got there about 30 minutes after they opened for lunch and there was only one other table there.... And the bread wasn't available yet... Still in the oven. I think a lot of restaurants have let their standards slip throughout covid-19. This was a good lunch but I felt like the "B" team was in charge.

Always enjoy Bravo, consistently good food. I’m glad it’s open for indoor dining even if only partially because of New Mexico having an idiot for a governor.

I usually rate Bravo 5 stars all the way around. We had a group of 6 for indoor dining and this was shortly after New Mexico allowed for 25% indoor dining. Our meals tasted good but seemed like they had sat for awhile. Our chicken marsala was flavorful but the chicken was overcooked and the mashed potatoes were not warm. We were there at the restaurant for 2.5 hours. Luckily our group had a lot to catch up on. I think partly the restaurant was still getting back up to speed as they had been doing primarily takeout and very limited outdoor seating especially with the cold and windy weather.

We have gone to Bravo for years and have always been very satisfied with the staff, service, and food. We will be back. This visit was a rarity.

Did not enjoy my meal. Was tasteless. Sent back and was not going to order anything else since I ate some of my husband's. But decided to since they wouldn't take off the meal and the waitress did not come around often. Could've been a lot better service wise.

We were there almost an hour and never received our entree’s. We were told “sorry, you got stuck behind a bunch of togo orders.”

When we cancelled our entree’s and asked for the check, no manager visit, no offer of anything. Disappointed that you couldn’t execute at 5:30 on a Saturday. I understand we just opened back up but you should be able to forecast and prepare.

Down inside a restaurant in NM. We have been traveling to states that are open just to
Be able to go out and have some sense of normal. The menu is offered through a QR reader and some of the dishes are not traditionally prepared such as the chicken scallopine but the eggplant was good and service was good

Due to covid and Valentine’s Day, I’m super pleased we got a reservation! The food was good, service was excellent and my only bummer comment would be our table was close proximity to the kitchen so it was a little loud but not bad.
