Just an average at best meal. The server John wore his mask improperly, exposing his nose.

The service was slow, felt like they were understaffed. Overall just a drab fee to the place.

Excellent service from Jenny. Bravo needs to include more Italian entrees that are not pasta based.

The staff seemed untrained. The server kept promising bread and it was finally delivered after both the salad and entree. we ordered new drinks and when she delivered the drinks she left the empty glasses of wine on the table. They were not busy. 3pm on Valentine's day.

Busier than we expected, therefore we’re glad we made a reservation.

Gave one star for 'ambiance' as there was no other way to rate 'safety'. Tables were not suitably spaced for current COVID conditions. We had to find an isolated area at the end of the bar to find a location we felt was safe.

I haven't been to Bravo in a few years and of course, the food, service and everything else was very good. One item I will always order is their Salad Bella Casa.....so good it deserves to be a headliner. My server suggested I enjoy Pasta Woozie, a dish filled with fettucine alfredo with grilled chicken. Very rich and I would have to admit it's not on the "diet" menu. So glad we returned to enjoy a great mid afternoon lunch.

We had a GREAT time at Bravo celebrating New Years Eve with family. At the last minute, after being seated, we found out that another family member was joining us. They immediately made room for that 'extra' person. Our waitress was absolutely top notch! Very friendly and attentive even though the place was quite full. Any time we needed anything, she was right there for us. Everyone loved their food --- and desserts! Can't wait to go back! Can't remember for sure, but it seems like our waitresses name was something like 'Dey Lye' & she needs a raise for her outstanding service!

It was New Year’s Eve, so the place was packed. I can’t believe it was Covid appropriate, but the food was good the ambience was fine and the value is really good for the food. The service was a bit lacking,But in that kind of restaurant I imagine they have a lot of turnover of their staff. We will definitely go back again.

We were so happy they were open on Christmas Day. My brother and I snuck away for a nice little dinner. But the service from our waitress was almost nonexistent. Thank goodness the host was backup. The waitress took our order and the host did *everything* else. And they weren't very busy.

Recently recovered from COVID-19, we wanted a night out of the kitchen. The restaurant was lively and the entrees were tasty. Caesar salad was amazing! Wine list wasn’t 100%, but still had decent options. Took home bonus entrees. Such a delightful meal!

COVID - I think you should not go here. The service was not so good. I let the manager know nicely - He said "we have people out that have been affected with Covid which has made us really understaffed" - I said aren't you supposed to close, and he said they can't. We waited 20 mins to get drinks and I needed another fork, and our food was cold by the time we got it. Dishes were left on tables all around us along with our dishes. I still paid and tipped 20% - It was a stretch for me to even go out to eat and then I was told this - it was an awful experience. Sorry to say, but I wouldn't recommend it right now.
