    The food was mediocre as well as the service. The server almost spilled the tray of drinks three times while passing them out. We asked for water - she gave it to one person instead of the entire table. She was sweeping the floor instead of taking our credit cards up. We finally had to ask her to take care of it.

    First, they didn’t have us on the reservation list. Waitress took our order then disappeared. Salads didn’t arrive, drinks not replenished, bar order never arrived. No compensation from management. Thanksgiving dinner was awful—dry turkey, gravy on top that wasn’t requested, maybe a spoonful of cranberry sauce, had to remind them about dessert. Wasn’t offered coffee with dessert. This outing was a disaster. There were only three in our party. This restaurant was disorganized from the get go. Will not visit here again. Really disappointed that management didn’t offer to comp anything given the circumstances.

    It took a loooooooong time to get our drinks and place order for main course. They gave us our appetizers for free to make up for it. Two tables seated after us had food and drink way before us. We weren’t in a hurry but it did take a while. Waitress was very nice but maybe not trained very well or at all?????? Staffing seemed very light but it is known that it is a problem for all restaurants

    Overall average service, they pizza we ordered was burned. Staffing is scarce, with service quality being affected. Items were overpriced in my opinion.

    I went for the brunch. I ended up getting a kids meal because I wasn't very hungry. I explained to the waiter that I did not want any the meat because I don't eat meat. When he brought my plate it had bacon on it. I explained I requested no meat, he said "oh... that's just how it comes" and walked away 😲. I proceeded to try eat by removing the bacon and eating the portions of food that didn't touch the bacon, however the bacon grease was all over the plate so I could taste it. Which ruined my meal. He also never brought my fruit that came with the order. In addition I ordered a drink from the bar, which was phenomenal! However, when I requested a second drink the waiter brought me a completely different drink! As soon as I recieved it I was like wait..I didn't order this, he was like..."oh I thought you wanted that one" (I guess he got confused because upon ordering my initially drink I was wrestling between the one I ordered & a different one. So he did say when I ordered the first drink that I can have the second drink later. However, when I requested my second drink I had already told him I'm glad I ordered that one because it was delicious! He said you want another one? I happily said yes! But I guess he was still thinking about the original plan..🤷🏾‍♀️ Anywho to his defense he did say that was his first day, but I still won't be back no time soon. 😬

    I thought the good was solid, but we waited a long time for it. Our waitress even apologized for how long it took unprompted, but it wasn't that busy, and they had plenty of people working, so not sure what was going on....we waited about 35 minutes for our food...

    Our server did everything he could to try to take care of us, however, the restaurant is severely understaffed! Bravo needs to hire more people! Our server had far too much responsibility for one person. This is not the first time we have experienced this at Bravo. I will not return until this problem is resolved.

    My dinner was 20 minutes later than everyone else’s. It took 35 min to receive food even though other tables were getting theirs. I asked for no herbed pasta so they just dumped tomato sauce on it instead of spaghetti. Will not be back.

    Overall, the food seems to have gone downhill from the lastime we were there. We were both disappointed in what we got. Even my drink (a limonatta) was a letdown. It was overpriced, barely any alcohol, and pure syrup. Service was very good. We were seated right away and our server was friendly and attentive. Overall we felt it was overpriced, mediocre food. We won't go back. Too many other choices in the area.

    I was disappointed in both the bolognese sauce, which I have always loved, and the house salad. Neither was as tasty as in the past. The lobster bisque was too spicy and disguised the taste of the lobster. The service was good, we were seated promptly and the bread and dip were good as always.

    The kitchen was VERY slow and our service was lacking. After waiting an hour for our meal, I still had to send my filet back because it was undercooked. The atmosphere was lovely and the food, when it finally arrived and was cooked properly, was good. II understand these trying times related to staffing, etc. so I am quite patient but our meal was very late in the evening and the restaurant was pretty empty so at least our service could have been better.

    Salads are cold with crispy lettuce just as I like them. The shrimp was too crispy. Lobster Bisque is the best I’ve ever eaten. It was busy and the waitress was also busy although she made it a point to walk by the table to check on us when she could.

    They did not have enough staff. No bartender… 45 minutes and our drinks hadn’t been started. We had a sweet waitress… it wasn’t her fault. We talked to management 45 minutes in … voiced concerns about them being able to serve us… she said she understood… we told her we were going to go somewhere else and she agreed that was probably a good idea. Didn’t even try to talk us into staying. We had poor service the last time we were there but trying to give them another chance. Will never go back.

    Being a Saturday night there were a few large parties which made service a bit slow. Our waitress was great as she kept the bread, oil and drinks coming while waiting for food. Food was very good although not many shrimp were in the scampi. Have been going to Bravo for years and will continue to do so. Love the Open Table app !!

    We had a reservation at 6pm for 3 people. One of the members of our group arrived at 5:50 and the other 2 at 6:10. We didn’t get drinks until 7 after being asked by 3 different servers what we wanted. Did get bread to start. We were finally able to order an appetizer at 7:15, got the appetizer but we’re still missing bread and half of our drinks. Didn’t get our order taken until 7:45. Finally got our food, but still no bread, still missing drinks, and also no salads with our meals. The food was pretty good. The restaurant was not too busy for everything to take as long as it did. The workers were nice but had horrible communication with other coworkers as we were asked multiple times by multiple workers about items and still never received them. Other people who sat after us got served faster and even left before us. I am a server myself and try to be very understanding, but honestly the experience makes me question coming back.

    They were great. The Chef took care of us in addition to taking care of bar service, cooking and tables. We were grateful for the good service and food. There was a big golf tournament in town and clearly staffing was an issue. My husband is a Chef and I know it’s hard to hire people. But don’t burn out the current employees who are doing a good job.
