    We loooove several of their dishes but it's getting harder and harder to deal with the terrible service. We went back after two years away because they were a nightmare in the latter part of the Covod years. Gave them time to regroup and tried again. The place was packed, haven't seen that in awhile, and plenty of servers. But still, somehow, we got the worst one. She had such an awful attitude and when she made mistakes, she just nodding and said okay, okay... and walked away. She got out order wrong and then argued with us about what we ordered. It was close to 15 mins before we.were first greeted and another 30 before our cocktails arrived, totally watered down with melted ice and then completely filled to overflowing with more ice. And it was downhill from there. But dang, the shrimp Napoli and lasagna are awesome.

    Let me say first that I have always enjoyed Bravo over the years for the good food that they prepare and present. But the last few times our meals were less than adequate. Last night, he food was just OK, with the pasta bravo, and spaghetti Bolognese being the best. But overall the food was bland. The menu has been modified and exorcised so that there are a few really interesting dishes. Our server was less than adequate too. She took our orders first and then had to come back to the table with a pad to confirm and write down the orders. Twice we had different waiters present food to our table that was not the food that we ordered. And the restaurant just seemed shorthanded. I’m afraid what this bodes for Bravo‘s future.

    The food was good but not the best value for overall quality. The waiter brought us two wrong things, although corrected fairly quickly. There are other Italian options in Knoxville we would return to before coming back here. Nothing really wrong but nothing great. Oh, at the risk of sounding old, the music was uncomfortably loud.

    It was such a beautiful day that we decided to go to Bravo’s, sit on the patio and look out at the mountains in the distance, while we had wonderful Shrimp Napoli, insalata Della Casa and flatbread. Dane and Daniel did a wonderful job serving us. It made a special memory on a busy day.

    We have enjoyed Bravo many times, however when we arrived to check in there 12-15 standing around waiting for someone actually for anyone to ask if they could help. Servers and other personnel were walking around doing teething. Finally one young man, a server, not a receptionists took us to a table.

    I don't understand how this place has so many good reviews. The paper over our table cloth had grease on it, and the table cloth itself had red sauce on it. We didn't order starters, and it's a good thing because just getting our food took forever. The food is just ok--nothing delicious or special at all. Whatever is in the oil they serve with the bread has a terrible flavor. The portions of food are very large which may be what some people like about it, but I would never go back.

    1) Service slow even though the place was not even close to full. 2)Too long to get drinks, even water. 3) Bread placed on table w/o plates, napkins, or silverware. Had to ask for them. 4) Dipping sauce for bread was terrible. 5) Meals were dry. Not enough sauce on any of the entrees. Chicken overcooked. Lasagna had very little meat sauce. Barely any balsamic vinaigrette on Caprese salad.

    We like the atmosphere of Bravo as well as the food. What has drawn us to dine at Bravo on both Thanksgiving and Christmas is that the tables are fairly far apart (are not too crowded during this COVID, Flu, RSV, Norovirus season), most customers are not boisterous, the service is always excellent, with attentive, polite and knowledgable servers, and the interior decor is uplifting and positive rather than being dark.

    The waiter was nice but had never waited on tables before. We were in restaurant 30 minutes with drinks and appetizer when he came to take the order. Out of filets and veal. 3 of the 4 at the table were ordering these. We should have known this as we sat down. Food sat under the hot lamp until my shrimp fettuccine was dried out. 6 hours later I was sick. Salmon was also dried out. Steak was brought to the table without steak knife and NE NEVER NOTICED. This has-been a favorite of ours for 10 yrs. But we will never be back. Yes I tipped him 20% after all it was Christmas.

    Someday I hope I won’t hear that the kitchen is overwhelmed!! The four of us simply ordered salads and had to ask about when the order would be arriving and this isn’t the first time lunch has taken way longer than it should!!! Do not plan to be back anytime soon because of this problem being repeated over and over. Our waitress was nice but something needs to be done or limit how many customers you allow in at one time. Sorry for such a poor review but simply over the same excuses

    Bravo used to be one of our favorite restaurants. The food quality has declined. The house salad was barely dressed and the grilled chicken on top was thin and overcooked. The restaurant was not busy and yet there was trash in numerous places on the floor and the front entrance was also littered. Our server, who was new, was very nice and helpful. Hoping Bravo returns to its former, higher quality, days!

    Food was ok but not at the level we were expecting from past experience. Their lasagna has always been a favorite but they’ve changed the recipe and it’s now smothered in Alfredo sauce. Server was great but food was mediocre, particularly for fine dining prices. Restaurant was nearly empty at normally peak time.

    We went for my daughter’s birthday and had reservations. Our table was not cleaned and set for us when they tried to seat us so we had to head back to the front while they prepped the table. We ordered drinks, only to be told later they didn’t have the beer ordered. Drinks took awhile to come after that. Bread came quickly, which was nice. The food was mediocre. The chicken Parmesan was not fresh and tasted frost bitten. The Mediterranean vegetable salad didn’t have some of the ingredients described on the menu. The lobster bisque had very few lobster pieces in it. They normally offer gelato for a birthday dessert, but they were out of it so they let her select any dessert of her choice, which was very nice. She ordered the cheesecake, and it was delicious. Our server was very nice but our overall experience didn’t make us want to go back.

    Wonderful food, beautiful setting. Our waitress was new but took very good care of us. Thanksgiving Day and the manager was there and hustling out food and came to the tables to welcome the guest. She made us feel so welcome! It was a great meal and a wonderful choice of restaurant.

    This was a very slow (I.e. not many customers) Saturday lunch. The meal took over 90 minutes from sitting down to walking out. The restaurant was understaffed to be sure - but the staff that was there sat around talking to each other. Bread didn’t hit our table for 30 minutes. After almost 60 minutes, I walked to the kitchen and saw our dishes under the heat lamp, with no expo. Our waitress was also a bartender, so she had no idea what was happening in her section or in the kitchen. I had to grab the manager and tell him to bring our food to us immediately. I’d guess this location is circling the drain, given the lack of customers and the lack of care shown by the staff. Avoid at all costs.

    Lackluster service combined with one dish that was not served as requested and another that was VERY dry made for a forgettable evening.

    Our waiter Zack was very attentive. The calamari and eggplant parmesan were overdone. It seemed like the oil was too hot when they were cooked. Otherwise, everything else was good.
