    Was travelling to Des Moines and booked it for the night before my son's gymnastics meet. Arrived at the restaurant to find that the restaurant was closed for the night due to some snow. No communication was received from the restaurant putting us in a precarious position with many hungry gymnasts and having to scramble at the last second to find food for our large group.

    This used to be our go to place many years ago. It's ok but has become somewhat run down. Food was fair. Not as good as we remember years ago. I think there's many more choices now in the area.

    I was extremely disappointed in our experience here. We've eaten at Bravo in the past but this was the absolute worst service ever. The manager or front desk hostess seemed angry and the staff was either very new or untrained. Our bar drinks were inconsistent and some not even good, as if they had soap in them or something. :( The food, however, was good. But I would not go back there again due to the service. I didn't even feel as if there was someone there to talk to about it and our server was MIA whenever we needed her. So strange.

    The food was very good. Service was ok. We had a reservation. It took a little longer to be waited on than usual, a little longer to order, little too long for water, etc. Our entrees were quickly brought out after we ordered. We had to ask to order desert, waiter forgot my coffee so I skipped it after dinner. Server was very nice, possibly overwhelmed in their service area. Still a nice place to go have a nice meal.

    Table near window overlooking lake and fall colors were beautiful! Waitress was attentive; service was quick; food was hot. Lasagne tasted great but seemed to be more of a cheese dish as it lacked enough meat filling for the best flavor and texture. Will choose another option next time. Spaghetti & meatballs did not disappoint, esp with extra sauce.

    We’ve dined here often and this time, we walked out without eating, after sitting in our booth for a very long time unattended. We were warned by the hostess it was a busy night when she sat us. We could see the many plates of prepared food done and waiting to be served all along the prep area! Seeing this was our red flag to leave. The front reception area and floor needs a good cleaning, too. The place looked dirty and so was our booth and table. Disappointing for a restaurant that has always been one of our favorites. Someone needs to rescue it.

    Do not go to Bravo on National Lasagna Day. The lasagna was sold out and we were grudgingly offered a substitute but only when pressed; no bread (first we were told it would be 5 minutes, then mysteriously it was all out); no drink refills; waited at table 15 minutes for server who then disappeared for another long stretch later; server would not let us use $20 off coupon since it was Nat'l Lasagna Day even though we couldn't get the lasanga (!); server vaguely apologized numerous times but wouldn't do anything to make the experience passable; we left without even mentioning it was a birthday celebration as there was no point. We're loyal, longtime customers but it was a very bad experience.

    Service was horrible. Bartender was waiting tables in bar and doing poor job as trying to take care of bar as well. This place unfortunately has really gone down hill service wise. Food was OK though. Will not be back for awhile, if ever, not the first time we had such terrible service here.

    We ate with all of our family for Mother’s Day at Bravo. The ceiling was leaking above our table,the waitress never came back to fill our glasses or give us bread and we had to ask the hostess. The food was really bland and didn’t get a lot of sauce on our food. A lot if the food seemed bland. My wife and I really enjoyed eating here in the past, but this place has gone downhill. I would not recommend at this time.

    Nice place a good meal, great service, and good value. Despite the large capacity and many other diners nearby, I enjoyed sitting and conversing comfortably with the dining party without background noise being a problem. I had Mother's Day lunch with Mom, who normally has difficulty hearing and being heard in a public space, especially a busy restaurant, but not an issue here- great environment. Bright, well-lit, busy, but not overwhelming.

    Went for a mother's day lunch. No reservation would have been needed as we were a few weeks before the actual day and plenty of empty seats. Restaurant was very cold and a lingering smell of sewer gas which can happen anywhere so I don't blame them but a little off putting. The food was good but some was a little undercooked - pizza, green beans. The chicken marsala was tasty. Service was good. Love the ciabatta bread.
