    We had an excellent waiter who was assigned to many tables and the tables were scattered throughout. The salad printer malfunctioned and as a result our salads and entrees all arrived at the same time and we could all tell that our dinners had been sitting on the warming shelf. When one books a table for eight and spends over $250 dollars not include gratuity, some type of compensation or at least a word from the manager on duty should be expect. My booking family events at Bravo is not likely to occur in the future.

    It was NY day...evening ...so expected to be crowded and staff busy. However, not that crowded , but staff seem too busy...not enough. In particular, our waiter. He was constantly rushing; seemed frustrated that we were taking too long to decide orders; forgot table was missing plates/silverware for 4; forgot what my wife ordered then said he'd get the salad, but it came late. He did agree to take it back or just not charge. Food was ok, but better Italian in other Dsm restaurants

    We enjoyed our food, but not our evening out. You're greeted at the front door by two faulty lights, one in the vestibule, the other at the host station. Then we were seated and greeted (?) by Kirk. This is someone who should not be working with the public. He seems as if he's jaded by the whole 'customer service thing' and so he's uncaring, uninterested, and downright rude. The restaurant was about 15% full, so it's not like he was rushed. Nonetheless, we got 2 'drive-bys' as he scurried past the table, slamming water glasses down without stopping, and then asking if everything was fine without stopping to hear the answer. My partner finished first, and while I was still eating (mouth full), Kirk buzzed by asking if we wanted dessert. I did. But I wasn't done eating. And my mouth was full. The check came immediately (and I still wasn't done). Maybe we both wanted coffee? Or an after dinner drink? Doesn't matter, Kirk wanted us out as quickly as possible. We went up the street to Cheesecake Factory for dessert and a bad taste in our mouths from the Bravo experience.

    Our server was really pleasant and did a good job at getting us our food and drinks. The food wasn't very good - Lobster bisque had cooled so the top layer was a bit congealed, the fresh oven baked rolls were warm but hard, and all the vegetable (asparagus and sweet potato) were really undercooked. The kids macaroni was a smashing hit, but the side of grilled chicken to go with it had "something minty in it". The salmon was pretty good. Other downside besides mediocre food was that a large drop of condensation dripped from a ceiling vent right down onto my hand, fork and food as I was eating. Gross.

    The quality has really gone downhill. I ordered the Chicken Caprese and it was the most unappealing plate when it arrived. The tomatoes didn't seem appropriate - two tomato SLICES instead of blistered cherry tomatoes. The chicken was grey. Others in my party voiced their disappointment in the meal as well. It's too bad...I had always liked the restaurant, but sadly, I don't plan on returning any time soon.

    My wife, my daughter and I enjoyed a great weekend lunch there. It was a pretty quiet time for Bravos which suited us just fine. We’ve also been to this restaurant on busy weekend nights when there’s a lot people and more energy and we like that even better. We have always gotten great food and service here.

    Used to be one of our favorite places. COVID seemed to affect it as it didn’t have one of my wife’s favorite dishes and (although minor) we didn’t get service for the bread at the beginning. Once we did, we only got three pieces and was not asked if we wanted more like others around us.

    Bravo has a great location, and even better if you can get an outdoor table on a nice day. We had an attentive and good waitress, but the food just average at full market prices. Calamari tasted like anything I could shake frozen out of a plastic bag at home. Salad entrees were not main dish size, but rather the size of a salad plate or side salad, over gooped with dressing. Not a negative experience, but for all of the restaurant options in the area, there are numerous other dining options that offer better value.
