Service was a little slower than usual but you can’t blame them when our stupid government is keeping employable people home by giving them extra unemployment and not holding them to look for a job! The food was delicious and everyone was really nice. I wish them luck in employing more people.

No issues. Nice vibe, good service and food. It’s been years since I had eaten at this restaurant. College graduation was that day so everywhere was booked. Bravo was one of the few places available. I will definitely move this place up higher on my list of good eating.

Food was not hot (appetizers and entrees) and service was not attentive or available when needed. Maybe it was just a bad day for them, but they were not particularly busy on the Sunday afternoon when we stopped in as we were passing through Lansing. Food tasted good, so I would give them another chance.

Honestly, we were so happy you had a time slot available. We actually booked online 40 minutes prior to our reservation. How wonderful we were able to get in on Easter Sunday! The service was top notch! The food was excellent and as always, the portions were great!! We were overly pleased. Thank you!

The staff was thoughtful and attentive. Out waitstaff noticed immediately the pace we dined and matched out the timing we received our food with our pace. There was obvious concern about our health as I watched all the stay clean their hand between tables and the tables were excellently spaced.
The food was very good. All in all an excellent experience! Thanks for dinner!

Enjoyed our dinner and experience here. I didn’t feel the least bit fearful of catching covid! Place was clean and everyone was spaced out. Food was delicious and they offered some great incentives to dine here. Would come back in a heartbeat. People should not avoid dining inside, especially at this restaurant.

Hubby and I arrived 12 minutes after scheduled reservation, and were seated immediately. We ordered drinks and dinner at the same time. Service was very friendly and efficient, although there was a bit of a rush to remove plates between courses. As always, the ambiance was warm and inviting with a noise level that allowed us to easily talk to each other. We are regulars at Bravo's, and will return soon.

I normally enjoy my experience at BRAVO; however, this past experience was not one of the finest. Our server and drinks were wonderful; however, the Pasta Woozie (my go-to dish) was not so good. I ate maybe a 1/3 or it and left the rest which was unfortunate as it cost $15.99. My spouse indicated a similar experience with this dish previously. Not sure if something changed with the vendors and/or preparation but wish it tasted as good as it used to. I would recommend to others as we have had good past experiences but would definitely include a disclaimer.
