We ate here for lunch. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. I will dine here again. The place is older and could use a little sprucing up, but hey, surviving a pandemic is way more important than a little wear and tear on the facility.

Everything was good but the kitchen was a bit slow and my plate was only luke warm. Food was good none the less but could have been a bit better.

What a great hidden place. I meet a date here with reservation, and it was great from the moment I walked in. Staff was professional and welcoming. Our waiter was excellent, I never had to ask for refills, and he was on question every time. The setting was romantic, I did not have to yell, to talk with my date. The food and drink were fantastic! I a new fan!

Food tasted like it was cooked from frozen. Got seated in the corner by the bathroom and it seemed like we were forgotten about until I spoke up. Did not get service until about 20min of being there. Food was drastically overpriced and wine wasn’t even chilled and tasted old. Save your time and money and go somewhere else. Or don’t eat at all cause that would be better than going to this trash restaurant.

Restaurant ears only.....Have been to other restaurants over the pandemic and definitely believe Bravo has closed way, way to many tables. I feel bad that they are hurting their business with these spacing issues.

The atmosphere was low key~ not one person overly friendly or inviting. No music playing~ just didn’t feel they cared who was there. The food was great but a lot smaller portions

The "Veal Parmeson" was deep fried like fried chicken. It was lukewarm. when I sent it back to bring me another order they just put "?veal" in fryer. The pasta was actually cold And sent it out inedible It was horrible I ordered the lobster bisque , IT was hot delicious. wine was superb.

We celebrated my birthday at Bravo. My husband ordered the Lasagna and said it was the best he'd ever tasted. I had the Pasta Woozie. There was so much of it, I brought most of it home and enjoyed it twice for lunch. Be warned, though, that Pasta Woozie has a lot of garlic! There was a nice wine selection, and we shared a slice of Tiramisu for dessert. We loved the ambience, which made you feel as though you were dining in Italy. Our server was very good. Usually I visit this restaurant with girlfriends. My husband enjoyed it so much that he wants to return there soon.

Our food was excellent--well prepared with large portions. Our server was attentive and took care of our needs. The table location left a lot to be desired. We were seated in the back room for spacing reasons although there appeared to be several open tables in the main dining room. The room seems very worn. For two of us, our view was looking at the corner of the room with three missing ceiling tiles. I think they can do better than that!

The food was great! I always enjoy my dinner at Bravo; however, our server was not great: he lacked knowledge of the menu (could not offer me suggestions for a wine or an entree- when asked about a popular choice, merely stated he didn’t know) and acted completely disinterested in his job the entire visit. Poor customer service skills.

Since our girls were young, Bravo is the place we always go when we have a family celebration. A new job, milestone birthday, anniversary, etc. we are never disappointed. Our girls are now 21 and 18 , both away at college. We were pleased when they asked if we could go to Bravo on New Years Eve. I made a reservation right away!

Disappointed it was decorated for the Holidays......during these covid times I thought for sure they'd make it feel festive or warm and inviting. Also, the seating....they stuck all the parties in the back lower level of the restaurant. They had an entire restaurant to spread people out. Instead, they crammed us all in that dingy lower level and no ambiance.

I know it’s covid time but the place is tired and showing it’s age. Add to that dirty silverware and so so food quality and it was a lousy Bravo experience. There are far better options than this.

Bravo is doing everything to make diners feel safe. I had the salmon, perfectly cooked. other diner had the roasted vegetable salad with chicken-also excellent. Our favorite dish on the menu is the Bolognese. Hard to go and not have that every time it is that good. We went on Wednesday $5 martini night. Cosmos were spot on. Service is always top. The night we went you got to choose another entre' to take home if your meal was a certain amount and yes we both chose the Bolognese. It was excellent the next day. Pasta suberb.

The service wslow, it was obvious our waiter was not happy to be there. Some of the food was good, the lasagna tasted like it came from a box meal and the steak was ordered as medium well and was served charred and overdone. We requested steak sauce to make the steak edible but it was not delivered.

It was nice to sit outside, but strange to have tables and chairs stacked up in this COVID-19 nonsense. While service was slow, I know it’s because of the reduced kitchen staff...it actually created a really relaxed atmosphere and enjoyable meal. Food was great and our server did all he could.

Marsala was burned with no sauce. Took 10 minutes to get sauce, chicken cold. Server did his best but he was also manning the bar, short servers. Manager to busy to approach table and apologize for burned food. Price is reasonable, but not for poorly cooked meal.
