    We went to Bravo! for casual dining. The place was quiet and not busy at that time. For starters I chose the Lobster Bisque. The bisque tasted well and was piping hot. I hardly found any lobster meat, so I assume a lobster swam through the pot on its way elsewhere. For my entree I chose the Eggplant Parmigiana, which the menu described as “crispy fried”. The eggplant was indeed crispy on the outside, but also oily-wet. The flavor was good, though. The pasta that came with it, an herb linguine, was drier than expected. My companion started with the chopped salad, which he enjoyed, followed by the chicken Alfredo. It was good, and plentiful enough to take home for another meal. Our server, David, did a great job.

    I have had a good dining experience at this restaurant in the past, but this meal was not good. The food was cold and not well prepared. It was a holiday; perhaps the kitchen was short-staffed.

    I would’ve given a 5-star review, but they were understaffed.. and the wait staff they had was waiting a lot on the food orders, but not taking care of the tables. Customers were putting their own dirty dishes on other dirty tables, and getting their own pitchers full of water, b/c wait staff wasn’t doing that. They were congregating around the kitchen warmer shelf.

    It was a really nice experience for Thanksgiving. Had the option of Thanksgiving turkey, potatoes, stuffing, green beans for or a limited menu of food; so we split and one had the Thanksgiving and other had off menu as this was our first time. It was really great, and appreciated the food and experience.

    I made Thanksgiving reservations 3+ weeks prior on Open Table. We arrived at 4:30 . The sevice was slow to say the least - granted it was probably a small crew for the day. However, the wait time was unbelieveable! The drinks we ordered took atleast 20 min to arrive. We ordered a dirty martina and a blackberry mojito. The martina looked like and tasted like it had one shot of vodaka (no olive), the mojito wasn't stirred, no taste of alcohol, no straw to stir the drink . Worse drinks we have ever had . The food was an epic failure. Out of alfredo sauce ( at 4:30) and no madera sauce ... Seven others in my party had their food finished by the time two of the chicken madera dinners came out!. The waitress said " the kitchen ran out of madera sauce and needs to make more"- unbelievable!!!.Our entree came - we asked to just box them up. When we arrived home to eat, the chicken was dried up, no madera sauce, and dried mushroom on the dried chicken. We gave the waitress some grace and a good tip , but such an epic failure on the food and wait time. The manager knew how many reservations he had for the day ! At 4:30 in the afternoon, how can you run out of alfredo and madera sauce? And who the hec did you have bartending ? We use to rely on good service and good food at Bravo, but after this experience on such a special holiday gathering , we won't ever be going back. If I had the email address of the CEO of Bravo I would be sending them the same reivew. Embarassed beyond belief that my family ( 9 guests) experienced this ...

    We reserved a table at Bravo in Leawood due to the great Open Table reviews. When we arrived, it was a tired and solemn atmosphere, with hardly anyone in the restaurant at a peak weekend time. The restaurant was dirty and worn, with an incredible amount of dust on the light fixtures, dirty mirrors, and an exit sign hanging from the ceiling by its electrical cords. My wine glass was dirty, and when our food came the experience was not much better. I ordered one of their signature pastas that had chicken, which tasted as though it had been cooked two days ago and reheated in a microwave. Our sons chicken tenders turned a weird grey color as our meal progressed, so we stopped him from finishing his meal. This meal was an extremely disappointing, highly overpriced dinner. There are much better restaurants in the nearby vicinity.

    We tried the $30 Prix Fix special; we both liked the salad and entree choices and of course, the bread is a bonus; also a glass of wine was part of the "deal". We ordered dessert as well, it was a very reasonably priced meal and we will be back! Also, the manager, Sam, was our server because they were short on staff (these nice days are hard on staffing for lots of companies) and he was wonderful! I recommend this Leawood location

    We usually like this restaurant but had a bad experience last evening. We waited at the check in desk before anyone came to seat us. The restaurant was less than half full, but we were seated right next to the door to the outside patio where servers and customers came in and out. We did ask to be moved. It took quite a few minutes before we even got water. We finally were able to order a glass of wine which took way to long to arrive. When it did, we thought we should go ahead and order dinner as everything seemed to take a long time. The meal did arrive promptly but we hadn’t even been served our salads yet. They took the main courses back to be kept warm. Although the food was good, the service did spoil our experience for a night out.

    Bravo has always been our go to restaurant, but it has really gone downhill. Our experience last night was not very good, though the food was good. There were 3 of us. One ordered a salad with chicken, one ordered shrimp diavlo, and one ordered salmon. As I said, the food tasted good once we got it. The first 2 dishes came out, but we waited 10-15 minutes for the salmon to be served. The two of us waited until the third one got served. We ordered drinks when we got there: a glass of white wine and a white peach sangria. The sangria tasted like water. Our waitress never came and asked if we wanted a refill. Nor did she fill our water glasses. We had to ask her for the bread basket. It was a very disappointing experience and not what we have experienced in the past. The restaurant was not crowded, so no good reason, other than lack of training.

    The bast part about our visit was the live jazz band. They were so good! And the water was ice cold. The food was not good. The bread service was bland the dip was bland. The caprese was ok but the tomatoes were not fresh- on par with what you’d get at a good McDonald’s. Our meals were bland! The wine I had was pretty good. I can think of 5 Italian places in this area that are better. Some might be cheaper. Save your money and just go to Olive Garden. Or splash out and go to Plate which is one of the best Italian places in town though we’ve only been to the one in brookside.

    It took nearly 10 minutes to be seated. Three groups came in and we were all waiting for a host/greeter while servers and the bartender just looked at us. Once seated we had a wonderful server! The food was good, drinks were just okay this time. Shrimp scampi was excellent. My daughter loved the pepperoni pizza but the lasagne was just okay (not as good as your store in Zona Rosa). Zona Rosa drinks are also better.

    We had a reservation for 5:30 pm on Saturday, which wasn’t necessary as most of the tables were available. With so many available options, the greeter sat us in the far back corner next to the bathrooms and the door leading to the patio seating, which wouldn’t stay closed and let all the hot air inside. The waitress was pleasant, but service seemed slow given the few guests she had to serve. My husband didn’t get the drink he ordered until after we had eaten all the bread and were halfway through our salads. He ordered the steak, which was very good. I ordered shrimp Alfredo and it was overly salty. The bread and salad were delicious! A live band came in to set up in our section halfway through our meal and it was very loud as they were warming up, so not great ambiance. We did have an email offer, so at least we did get a discount on our bill. Bravo’s used to be one of my favorites, but it’s definitely not what it used to be.

    Waitress was great. Only three for whole restaurant and she hustled. Martini w blue cheese olives came without because the bartender didn’t want to make more. Salads came out 30 seconds before entrees. 2/3 of the entrees had clearly been sitting since the Alfredo was solidified. Also, hood exhaust system wasn’t running great. All you could smell was charbroiled.

    We have always loved Bravo but it had been awhile since we were there. We were basically the only people there on a Tuesday night at 7:30. It was strange as it used to be very busy. It felt run down and seemed like our poor waitress did everything but cook our food. I hope they are not closing soon but that’s what it seemed like.
