The reception desk has been underwhelming for quite some time. Just don’t expect anyone to greet you with much friendliness or enthusiasm and you’ll be fine. The servers are mostly all great and the bartenders are always super-friendly. The food is worth ignoring the consistently “frosty” reception.

It took 8 minutes from the time we were seated until our server came to us. The food was ok but the fra diavalo lacked flavor. For $60 including tip it was meh at best.

We wanted a later reservation time and were told it was very busy, they were booked solid. When we left (at the time I had requested) the restaurant was practically empty and they were telling a walk-in couple there were no available tables. It was evident they were very short staffed...so they should tell the truth. My salmon was just OK, not the usual.

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.

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!

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.

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.
