    Food was terrible. Ordered spaghetti with meat sauce & Shrimp Scampi. Just terrible. Server recommended we not order the dessert, as it was pre-packaged & frozen. Do NOT recommend.

    We went for thanksgiving, they were very organized and prompt with the reservation. My husband had the thanksgiving dinner, nice portion sizes were served, he liked his dinner. I had bravo pasta very good. The server was very friendly, I forgot her name, but she had lung blonde curly hair. We would definitely eat here again.

    Reservations for 6 were at 1:30pm for Thanksgiving Dinner. Food was average but the manager on duty created a bad experience for our family dinner by publicly criticizing the entire table with a verbal comment to all who could hear "we should be thankful he is working today". I have been in F&B 20 years. If this manager can not handle the early hour of a day like today perhaps he should be working away from your patrons?

    There was no mention online that the Thanksgiving Day menu would be very restricted. There were no vegan entrees available. My Thanksgiving Feast was a garden salad and a hard roll. Bon Appetit!

    We had a great time on Thanksgiving Day! It was nice that we could do either a traditional Thanksgiving meal or something on the Italian side from the curated traditional Italian menu. Kudos to Bravo for being open on Thanksgiving!

    We dine at Bravo often and always enjoy it. This was a disappointing experience. Our salads were great, but the meatball appetizer and flatbread were served medium warm at best. Apparently our food sat in the kitchen waiting to be brought to our table because the service was extremely slow. We understand restaurants are short staffed, but please at least serve hot foot. We asked that the flatbread be reheated and it came back very rubbery.

    We were pleased that our reservation was honored even though diners who had arrived before us were still waiting. Service was prompt, portions were more than adequate, food was tasty, and bill was moderate, given inflation pressures.

    Why do you use Open Table ???? They don’t honor the reservations if they are “busy “ , how do you know ??? That’s why we use Open Table , or used to ?? Bravo blamed Open Table usage on corporate, could careless about your experience !! Very disappointing that you think you are making a legitimate reservation 20 minutes ahead of time and then you drive there and are told “Sorry we are busy , so your 6:30reservation means nothing, we can seat you at 8pm !!!??? Used to be Regular s

    Was very disappointed in both the food and the waiter. Had to ask him more than once on 3 or 4 different things, and he acted like we expected too much. Even had to ask twice for silverware/napkin! (Even after our salads were served.) Have always had delicious meals and waiters; however, not the other night. It will be awhile before I return with guests - or recommend to someone.

    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.

    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.
