Service was very slow--our water glasses weren't refilled in a reasonable amount of time and our entrees took 30 minutes to come out.

I'm excited that Bravo is back in business. It seems like they're having a little trouble getting back in the swing of things, but the food was good. Our server was new, but very personable and enthusiastic.

Our server was excellent. Very attentive. This is our favorite Italian Restaurant in Louisville. So glad the dining room is reopened after such a long Covid closure.

Food was excellent. I had the Pork Chops and my wife had her favorite, the Chicken Marsala. We also tried the Flatbread appetizer. It was delicious! I highly recommend.

First time back since Covid... so glad to see Bravo’s has survived! We had our old standby caprese salad which was good, but could use some more balsamic glaze. My husband got the pepperoni pizza & I had chicken Marsala with green beans & mashed potatoes. I love their Marsala sauce. Service from Stephen was very good too.

Took my two elderly parents out to dinner. The staff was extremely helpful in helping us get seated. They were extremely patient and attentive throughout the meal. Ian did a wonderful job serving us.

Waiter was inattentive. Didn’t bring the correct amount of wine. When told about the error it took too long for it to be corrected. The manager did however give us a discount.

But call first to make sure they are fully staff. Otherwise I disagree with a waitress had 2 parties of 16 by herself. I had to address it politely and manger explained 3 ppl walked out. The compassionate person I am I helped and the manager made sure we was checked on and discounted us. Overall I am thankful.

If this was my first time here I wouldn’t be back. Had an 8:30 reservation and they were 45 minutes behind. When I asked about being seated the hostess informed me they were seating 8:00 reservations, it was 8:45. When I acted surprised she stated it wasn’t her fault. I don’t care who’s fault it is because I guarantee it’s not mine. Table cloths were dirty and the paper they lay over them did nothing to hide it. Bread and oil starter was delicious as always. Lettuce in the salad was limp and aging. Zucchini appetizer was very oily and had a burnt taste. Food sat under heat lamps long enough the pasta started to get crunchy. The building is starting to really show wear and lack of maintenance. Not sure we will return. Could’ve eaten at Fazolis and would have been just as satisfied for 1/3 of the cost.

Evening was great! Waiter was a know it all about Bourbon vs. whiskey and was very adamant about proving his alleged knowledge and point to a fault. Turned off my guest and me.

We ordered drinks at the bar, while waiting for the table, and did not get them. They were going to bring them to the table, and we canceled them for lasting so much. We ordered wine with the meal. The service at the table was very kind and complete. We had a good experience.

Our first dining experience here. Food was delicious. Started with spinach artichoke dip. Prefer chips instead of soft bread and $10.99 was a bit pricey but otherwise it was good. Lobster bisque was delicious. Wife had Lasagna (very good and large portion) and I had the shrimp and lobster fettucine (also delicious and well portioned). Service was more than adequate as it was Valentines Day. Server kept apologizing for what he considered delayed service but we were completely ok with it. Overall, we would eat there again.

Really good food & service, but was really loud. Hostess & waiter apologized in advance for a longer than normal wait for food but could not tell me what amount of time that meant.

We were able to get in, eat and leave in a very reasonable amount of time but they needed to be able to explain what they meant by the delay as we had another appointment we needed to make .. and did.

The food and service was exceptional. The noise was incredibly loud and made conversations difficult. My biggest complaint however is that apparently reservations mean nothing. We had to wait 15 minutes after our confirmed reservation time for a table. Last time was a 20 minute wait. It’s starting to become not worth coming.

Our food was delicious, as it most always is, but the entire experience was less than satisfactory due to the inattention of our waiter. Upon being seated I slipped out to the bathroom. While I was gone from the table the waiter came and refused to take my husband's order for a cocktail for me because I wasn't present. My husband is 69 years old !! After he came to take our food orders he said he would bring bread which we had to ask for again 10 minutes or more later, after we watched him bring a table seated after us their bread. Our entrees were unusually slow in coming out so we asked for more bread for our meal and he never brought that. When we brought this to his attention he was very flip and said he didn't multitask well. No joke!!! BRAVO is always a great place to go but even on what seemed like a slow night this guy make it less than satisfactory.
