I was surprised I’ve always loved the food and this time not so much. Got a simple house salad and soup. Soup was cold, salad was blend, I asked for no bacon but the. Got no tomatoes or cucumbers. Server didn’t check on us and when ordered desert (restaurant was empty) took a good 15 minutes to get l.

Our dinners looked great but were surprisingly a disappointment. Overpriced, bland, lacking seasoning and sauce, all three had problems. Basically too much money for underwhelming food and high priced wine. So sad.
The bread was delicious and the service was very good. At least that.

Food quality was underwhelming. We were so excited to eat there after the long COVID pause and the food quality was disappointing for the amount of the bill. Great and attentive waitress though.

We had a great dinner with friends. The food was excellent, portions were hearty and the service was excellent (thanks Josh!!). When we left we talked with our friends about how good the food was compared to other local Italian restaurants, and Bravo hits the nail on the head.

This restaurant was closed during Covid.
It has RE-opened under new owners and quality of food, mistakes with orders and just general atmosphere is unprofessional.
A big disappointment from previous levels. Will not go back.

This was the first time we at at Bravo since being under new ownership. We went there to sit outside and to eat our favorite dishes. Our favorites are no longer on the menu so we were very disappointed about that. They, like many restaurants are very understaffed. Our server was wonderful, as well as the manager; working with what they had. I was served the wrong salad and even though they tried to recreate my favorite, dish, they couldn't. It took a long to be served, even the traditional bread. We enjoyed eating outside at least, but won't be back until they are able to get more servers and kitchen help. The manager is doing her very best to do so. Just another sign of the times we are living in right now.

They've changed their menu recently and our waitress was not at all familiar with it. She couldn't make any suggestions, didn't know what drinks they had, didn't know about the food options. We went on a Friday night and the place was not busy at all, however our service was extremely slow. Our waters and drinks would stay empty for a while before anyone would come around to check on us. Sad, this restaurant used to be good. We love the outside dining area, but unfortunately the food and experience have just gone downhill.

No menus. Card on table said to get menus via QR code so, we had five people on their phones looking for menu. Beverage menu was on a different page. So much for ambiance. Food was so-so. There was a lot of it which was good and the desserts were good. Waiter was helpful.

It’s been better. The best restaurant outing combines food, service, ambience. Warm personal service and ambience were on target, but this time the food was just not up to the standard we have come to expect from our frequent visits. We will return, but 2 of our 4. Had meals significantly below par, lack of flavor and lack of consistency doomed them to below mediocre.

Restaurant was mildly busy. Seemed a little under staffed. We ordered a soup and a salad but they brought entrees and forgot about the soup and salad. Took off bill and brought salad after we started on entrees. Entree was good but service was slow and seemed disorganized. All in all was disappointed.

So glad to see the return of menus you can hold in your hand instead of the push to access the menu on smart phones. Menus on your smart phone not classy, not friendly and an insipid idea.

We went there on our wedding anniversary. We were seated in a corner/nook next to a door to outside dining. Had to use a qr reader to access menu. The veal parmigiana was almost tasteless. Bad choice on our part. Will avoid in the future.

The Eggplant Parmesan was delicious as always. Appetizer was served at the same time as the entree. It was cold and the food was hot so we had to eat it first. Tiramisu was wonderful as always. Coffee was barely warm and awful. I know they’re working with less staff but all in all it was disappointing. I’ve been there many times pre-pandemic and always had good experiences. I think I’ll wait for several months before trying it again.
