We like this place, but had made reservations specifically for the patio. It was closed because of temporary construction, but we were not notified in advance of arriving.

We had Alfredo and it tasted like homemade noodles on well something. Whoever made that sauce needs to know what Alfredo taste like. For the price and that taste, um no. Nothing like it should taste as NO Alfredo taste. The server was so very sweet and nice, but sadly had no clue. I had to ask him multiple times just for water and that was after he asked how our food was. Will not be going back.

The food was good and the service OK, but the timing of the food was unacceptable. We ordered drinks and a couple of appetizers intending to have a leisurely dinner before a show. Before our appetizers arrived we were encouraged to order our entrees. I'm uncomfortable doing this because it too often results in bad timing. One in our party also ordered a salad and another person a soup. We were almost finished with our appetizers when the soup and salads arrived. That was good timing, but within a minute of receiving the soup and salad our entries arrived. Way too soon for those to be brought to the table. When I mentioned to the young woman delivering the entrees that these arrived too quick she looked at me like a deer in headlights and didn't say a thing just hurried away. Several minutes later our waitress returned to our table and I nicely told her the entries arrived moments after the soup and salad. Again a deer in headlights look and she asked if we wanted them taken back. Too late, we were already eating. This is too nice a restaurant for a service error like that, or at least I thought it was.

A member of the staff asked how it was going. When I told him it had been better on previous visits, he said, “We’re struggling.” During our visit, this struggle manifested through very slow service, although the restaurant was no where full. The struggle was clear when our salads were warm - not room temp, but warm, indicating they had been setting, ready to be delivered for awhile - but no one came by to check, so we ate warm salads, since we had nothing else to eat. It also was evident when our children were finished before our adult entrees ever came. The server seemed to be working multiple areas, so getting simple things like bread or pepper was impossible. Not sure if/when we’ll go back, which is saying a lot, because Bravo is super convenient and we’ve eaten there many times.

Something is wrong at this restaurant. They were out of all but one type of white wine, The server said it was because they wanted to sell out as they were changing over their wine list. Food was good and service was good.

I can not recommend this restaurant at this time,

I am wondering if they are going to close.

Made a reservation so expected a decent table. There were plenty of open booths and tables, but they seated us right in front of the kitchen area. The way the table was placed we had our back to the restaurant, only looking at the cooks, waiters, etc.
The staff in the kitchen has their masks either totally down, or their nose showing, or adjusting them constantly and touching the food.
I’ve had great food here before, but this was definitely a letdown. The salads were totally tasteless, with large chucks of core in one. As for the entree, the salmon looked good but was over cooked, and the chicken Woozie again was tasteless and dry. So disappointed. The olive oil dip for the bread was basically that, olive oil with a few sprinkles of herbs. Barely a few.
The waiter was pretty good, but we had a long wait for our food. After the head Chef left, (not sure if he had a prolonged break or left) the food was extremely slow coming out.
We had a coupon, so it helped, but I won’t be back because of the food quality.

Very disappointing. Much of our food was cold. One of the four orders was wrong (ordered chicken parm and got eggplant parm) and had to be redone. One order (which was just a salad) showed up 10 minutes after all the other orders including the one that had to be redone, so almost 20 minutes after the first meals were served. The waitress did her best and was very nice and apologetic but it seemed obvious that the kitchen was either understaffed or just unorganized. I understand that these are challenging times but Bravo always excelled at their food and service and it was just sad to see where they are right now. I’m not sure we’ll go back.

We really enjoy eating here - visit it at least annually as it tends to be very busy. It has a completely open dining area, so it can be quite noisy. We got in at a time when it was not very busy this time. We definitely recommend it!

I was under-whelmed with the Pasta Weezie (it didn't have much flavor to it), but everything else, including the Basil Strawberry Limonata was DIVINE. Pro tip: get both the creme brulee AND the tiramisu. Your taste buds will thank you for it.

We went there for Valentine’s Day dinner and I ordered one of the entrees I normally like to order the Fra Diavolo with shrimp and the pasta was way overcooked. The portion was pretty small too. Our waitress never came back to check on us after delivering food and had to try and flag her down to get Parmesan. Everything was okay just nothing special that would make me want to go back for. I may have actually been happier eating at Olive Garden to be honest.

We had to wait a bit to meet our server, it seemed perhaps where we were seated was not assigned yet. We really dislike the fact that you cannot use the Bravo card anymore in your restaurant. When the pandemic happened we had points built up for a free meal and then the pandemic. We realize it is not your fault but do not understand why it is not being used. I really miss the lobster ravioli and a few other things. One night on a Friday night we came to eat with our friends and you were totally out of Lasagna at 5:30 pm.
That was not appropriate. These are just a few things that are noticeably missing. Thank you for bringing the bread back too. Our server was very good and it was not her fault to be waiting on us late. So it is not her fault. Thank you, Jerri & Dean
