The food was wonderful. Nice to go into a restaurant and not only have an attentive wait staff, but also good food. We were met at the front and courteously escorted to our seats. Our drink order was taken and brought to us quickly. I will definitely refer our friends to this restaurant.

We went to Bravo for an anniversary. My friend is unable to wear a mask for health reasons and they almost refused us entry. Meanwhile, the hostess’s mask wasn’t even covering her nose. The food was lackluster. It seems there may have been some menu changes. The bread for dipping had sun dried tomatoes and wasn’t very good. Our waitress took my water glass for a refill and then I watched her bus two tables before bringing me a glass. All in all, the evening left me wondering if Bonefish would have been the better choice.

Sat 25 minutes after our reservation time. Restaurant was overcrowded or understaffed. However everyone really tried to make it work. I felt sorry for the running going on with the staff. I am sure things will get better.

I know they just opened back up but after being shut down this long you would have thought they would have been a little better prepared. Appreciate their Covid-19 response and allowing customers to feel comfortable going back out to eat but their food and service need attention right now.

Service as just OK. Party of 7 took order of 6 and left. Appetizer plates dirty. Some meals OK, others not. Went thinking it would be an upgrade to Olive Garden. I have had better meals at Olive Garden.

Brandy, our server, was excellent. She had a great personality, made good recommendations yet wasn’t pushing. The food was very good and the berry cake with ice cream was amazing. All in all, a very good experience.

Had a flatbread appetizer and pasta entrees. The pasta entrees were perfectly prepared, perfect amount of sauce and pasta was prepared al dente. The Marguerite flatbread appetizer was also nicely prepared, as were our cocktails. Service was friendly, attentive but not overbearing. Would definitely go back.

Spinach dip was great. Crispy ravioli with dipping sauces need some work. Filled with air and very little cheese.

We had placed our reservation through Open Table for 6:45pm. We checked in as soon as we got there. We were told we would have a 30-40 minute wait. I said we did the reservation to avoid wait. The greeter turned his iPad around and "stated I can't create a space for you we are full see here" He then said I will seat you at the first available table. So we waited... 5 other parties were seated before we were. Only bc the manager came up and asked the guy if there were any reservations that need seated. The guy started to say no when I piped up and said yes our reservation was for 50 minutes earlier. I have never experienced a wait like this when using Open Table. The food and the service was just ok

Ordered grilled chicken with pasta meal, when meal was received there was no grilled chicken on the pasta meal. Waitress said she'd have them remake it, they added the grilled chicken to pasta meal, did not remake. Was not offered shredded parm. cheese after getting meal back, but was offered powdered parm cheese instead.

Well it was Valentine's day so it was busy they were 15 to 20 minutes behind on reservations understandably. The hostess was extremely polite and pleasant which made the wait tolerable. Food was amazing service was great even though they were slammed the were polite,pleasant, and fast to help their guest's.

Excellent place to enjoy a meal with family, excellent service and plenty of parking.
In addition, we have had two large family lunches (25-35)at this Bravo and the food and service were exceptional.

We had booked a table for 6.45 pm on February 7th. Upon arrival we were told that we would have to wait for a table.
It did not seem to matter that we reserved a table.
There was a table in the bar and we decided to take it.
Somewhat disappointed at the service

The food, service and atmosphere were fantastic! We did have an issue with the hosts. We checked in a few minutes before our reservation and waited 25 minutes while several other parties of the same size with later reservations were seated. I finally approached the host stand again and reminded them that we were still waiting for our table. They immediately seated us - I’m assuming they realized an error in their seating order. In any case, the service and food were exceptional and we will return!

It was New Years Eve so they were busy. I had chopped salad and Lobster Ravioli. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs.
Chopped salad and bread were delicious!
Lobster ravioli was good but not warm enough.
Spaghetti and meatballs also not warm enough and my husband said it was lacking in flavor.
Servers were great!

We waited for table tho we had reservation. Could not get bar service for the life of us, tho it was busy and New Years Eve. We waited at our table for over 40 min til someone even cleared our table from peeps before. We even walked around n looked for management or server. We finally got Jordan to take care of us and he was wonderful considering the stress he was under. Bottom line 6:00 reserv got home at 9. Totally not goid

So I've always been a big fan of the Salmon salad. Even as the price has gone up, it is still a great meal, particularly with the bread and oil always served. This restaurant can be very busy as times, so we usually go early or make a reservation on weekends. Give them a try.

Well, I was there with my family for a birthday. They were out of the beer that my son had ordered, out of ingredients for the dish my daughter ordered and my wife could not tolerate the mixed drink she ordered. So it was a lot more like going to Denny's where they are out of everything like in the movie, The Santa Cause.

I understand it’s 12/24 but when the manager admits that tables are sitting for 3-4 hours and not ordered food or drinks it’s time to ask them to leave. This is the norm i. Large cities and especially in highly popular restaurants.
Running 1.5 hours after a reservation is poor managment

We reserved a table for 11 in the weeks leading up to Christmas Eve. Our reservation was for 8:15. We were sat at 9:27. Totally get running behind a little for the holiday but this was a mistake by the hostess. She continued to seat tables of four at locations where you could only fit larger parties. Regardless, we were late to meet other family afterwards as we finished dinner near 11p. The manager was sympathetic to out plight and offer to comp. We were not looking for a handout but better planning and management. Many at the table have worked in the service industry and restaurants so we get it, but the lack of attention and training on a crucial night can only be pointed at management. Service after we were say was standard and the food was excellent. We still tipped the server 20% as it was not her fault the tables were not flipped in time.

Worst experience I ever had at a restaurant when I had a reservations. We waited for over an hour after our reservation time and then had to leave as we had our grandchildren with us and they needed to eat.

To make matters worse the bar ran out of bourbon, not sure how a bar can run out of bourbon.
