The food is always good. The pork chops are the best. My only complaint is that they don't have a non pork option for brunch. Our server was great and attentive.

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.

Felt hurried from the time we sat down. We could have been out of there in less than thirty minutes if we wanted too. Ordered our dinner with a side salad for me and my husband to split. I could see the salads sitting on the counter for at least ten min when a waiter other than our own brought our meals out to us. My biggest, I mean biggest, pet peeve of mine is not even given time to finish a salad before the meal arrives. The waiter could sense my frustration when I told him we ordered salads. Our original waitress then came up with them and told us that the staff making the salads were really slow tonight. They offered to keep our meals warm but I personally never send my food back to “keep warm”. Then She asked if we wanted our $7 salad in a to go box!!!! I’m like what??? It’s loaded with salad dressing! Told her I did not want it. The lasagna didn’t even resemble lasagna and we even had to ask if it was indeed what we ordered. Worst lasagna my husband ever had. Our original waitress consistently went to the table next to us but never approached our table again until the bill came. Never apologized until then, never tried to make it right. My chicken parmigiana was rubbery and literally no sauce on the pasta. Extremely poor customer service with not even mediocre food for what we paid for it. Will never go back.

Was seated across from a booth that had sanitary bucket, rag and hand sanitizer. Asked that it removed which server did. General Manager stopped by and we shared the fact that those items were very unappetizing and just didn't belong. She said they were there on purpose to show how clean they were. How silly.

When do you plan to have lobster ravioli back on the menu. It is my favorite entre' at Bravo. I checked on line before we decided to go to the Toledo Franklin Park location and it was on the menu. However, we got there and no they do not have it. Very disappointed. The waiter explained they do have it at other locations. John

We decided to dine at Bravo's for our anniversary and also since it changed ownership. We were hoping that the quality had not changed.
We were very pleased with every aspect of our dinner experience. The staff was very friendly and eager to please. The food was outstanding except for the flatbread which had no seasoning and was very bland. The Peach Sangria was so good that it was hard not to keep ordering except order it without ice and ask for ice on the side or you'll end up with half as much if you let them fo it.
Besides the flatbread and sangria the only tip I would give this restaurant is to teach your servers the two-minute rule - ask how everything is within two bites or two minutes!

Our food orders came out cold and incorrect. We also had to wait for long periods of time before our server could check on us. However they were short staffed and the manager did come over and apologize. Again, it was not server’s fault either-she was stretched way too thin. They need more waitstaff to ensure accurate, timely and good customer service.
