Carlos was our server and he is excellent in the service category. The food was very good and we will definitely be back. We were seated in an area that was large enough for the ten of us and was a nice place to be seated. The kids were very happy with their meals too.

Unfortunately the food was mediocre. My pizza was seriously underdone (gummy crust, etc) and the eggplant parmesan was not up to past quality. disappointing as we used to like this place.

While most often a Sunday lunch diner, I tried a Saturday lunch and was impressed how full the dining room was, although it was still relatively quiet. The service was great, frequent beverage refills and checking to see if we needed anything. We had the lasagna and tortellini bolognese. Both were adequate portions, served hot and flavorful, not the usual bland Italian dishes available at other restaurants.

Can't really rate food and value because we left before being served, actually before being acknowledged as being at a table. After 15 minutes watching multiple servers pass by our table without so much as a look in our direction, I sought out a manager and told him of our problem. He offered to bring us bread and water and said he would speak to the server. When he returned with the bread and water, he told us WE had made the server cry. We left. On our way out, we saw about 15 persons waiting to be seated, although the entire large center section of the restaurant was totally unoccupied. Bad service, bad management. Had a nice dinner, without reservations, at Seasons 52, five minutes away.

Carlos was excellent. Warm bread is the best!
Suggestion: Do think the wait staff could do better bring salads/ soup first and entree later. I prefer to eat them separately and not have my entree get cold while eating my salad or soup.

The two hostesses were too busy “discussing” who should be seated where and by whom, they neglected to greet the 10 customers waiting to be seated. Our server was distracted at best. One order wrong, but, after waiting 35 minutes for the food to be served, declined to send it back. The table next to us of 4 people, left as we ordered. Their table was never cleared our entire meal. Not pleasant eating next to a dirty table. The same held true for the booth across from us: dirty the entire meal. Had to repeatedly ask for drink refills.
I know times are tough with help BUT when bussers are standing around chatting and your waitress says it’s because we are busy(I counted 10 empty tables most dirty) to me this speaks of poor management.

We enjoyed the meal much better than the last time we went. I'm glad we gave them another try. Our server was Sarai and we couldn't say enough good things about her. She got everything in our order perfect and timing was spot on. We aren't much for chatty servers and small talk and she managed to hit the nail on the head with the perfect blend of friendly service without being intrusive. Will return because we love the food, too!

First time going to Bravo!! It was a great experience. The Shrimp App was excellent and I would have ordered it again if I had room in my tummy.. Taylor our server was excellent and the Manager interacted with my kid and treated her like an adult.. I was quite surprised that a restaurant of this caliber even had a kids menu.. This will go into our “we go back” jar of ABQ restaurants…

The service usually makes the experience but our server was inattentive and hard to find at times. She seemed to disappear. The manager walked by and didn’t even acknowledge our presence. He should have been introducing himself and checking on customers. The food was lackluster at best. It reminded me of the old Macaroni Grill just down the street. The veal parmigiana and the chicken parmigiana could have used a bit more flavor & sauce, it was a bit dry. We asked for some fresh bread but were given some excuse that they were making more and it’d be about 10 minutes, it never arrived at the table. Dirty utensils and dirty plates. The crème brûlée was probably the only saving grace of the meal. It was the first time and probably the last at this restaurant.

The service was really slow. We saw other waiters way more often than ours. There were multiple empty tables and we saw our server only waiting on one other table. Maybe he was in another area we could not see but he disappeared a lot and for long periods of time. Not certain if the bartender or our waiter were the issue but a couple of us had to order multiple times and it took 15 minutes to get my drink, we were almost done with dinner.

We have eaten there on many occasions and have always been impressed. However, the lettuce on my dinner salad was turning brown and seemed short of being fresh.

Our server asked us to pay as soon as we got our food so she could go home early. Unprofessional and ruined the meal. We had no service after that so we had to fetch our own boxes and were stuck with a pile of dirty dishes on the table. It's the first bad experience there but a memorable one. Food was decent and that was the up side.

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
