Side choices are lacking, bland chicken dish, steak was tough, charged for entree salad vs add on, server was defensive...bread and oil were good. Probabaly wont be back!! Too bad because bravo NY strip and crispy potatos used to be the BEST🙄

The floor was disgusting. We had bread pieces and crumbs underneath our table, as well as some silverware someone had dropped. Very clear they were not fully cleaning between tables. They quickly wiped the table down before we sat down, but it was with a very wet rag and I had to sit on a napkin to avoid my dress being wet. Very disappointed for this type of restaurant. My past experiences with bravo were much better.

Consistently great food at a good value. The reduced menu due to Covid is missing some of our favorites. Inside dining is socially distanced and service was satisfactory. Take out area was booming. Can't wait for June 2nd to arrive so Bravo, like so many other places can return to normal. I hope they can get appropriate staffing.

This is the third time in a row we’ve been to Bravo. Of course like everywhere they are short staffed and the service is HORRIBLE. We bused our win table and so did the others arrows us who had the same terrible waitress. We used a vacant table to pile dirty dishes and glasses. Food was served lukewarm again. Pasta was undercooked. It’s just not good !!

We have been to this location 12-15 times at least, but returned after pandemic sequestering for 15 months. There was good social distancing, every other table closed. Mostly older people there...we waited over 20 minutes to get our water, and the service was very slow the whole time. Food was served hot and delicious. Just may need more servers. We did not feel the attention we had on past visits.

Reservations on Mother's Day were running 45 min behind. I always remembered the portions as being fairly large however ours were all small. Really small. The food was also barely room temp when it was served to us. When I told the waitress she just said "ok." For a family of 5 we spent $105 plus tip and it was not worth it at all. We will not be back.

We went for Mother’s Day at 4. We’ve done this every year, except last, for several years. in the past there were always employees everywhere (in a good way- plates pre-bussed quickly, waters refilled right away, etc.). This year was a lot different due to staffing issues. The service was a little slower and our server had more tables to take care of. you could tell all of the employees were working extremely hard. The food came out a little bit later than it normally would, but it was delicious.

We made reservations for Mother's Day a month out and requested outdoor dining. Due to rain, outdoor dining wasn't available understandably. Our reservations were at 4 and we were told there was a wait when we arrived about 4:05. We waited for at least 30 minutes before we were seated. Some parties were seated immediately upon checking in. I ran into someone else that had reservations that day and they had to wait over 30 minutes for their table as well. It seems they were overwhelmed and overall we've had great experiences at Bravo's. Mother's Day was a bit disappointing due to the wait and disorganization.

Bravo is usually one of our favorite restaurants but was somewhat disappointed on Mother’s Day. Only 2 menu options for the brunch except for the regular lunch and dinner menu items. I Needed to request some items twice before they arrived. Food was still good, but wasn’t what I was hoping to order as I had seen another (must have been an old) brunch menu and was looking forward to something else. We’ll still be back in the future.

Good service and clean restaurant. Seems like the food quality in many restaurants has deteriorated in order to increase margins and also to keep costs in check. I would not be surprised if the food is ‘outsourced’ brought into the restaurant to be reheated or ‘cooked.’ However that is the story will almost all restaurants in suburbia today. Again, nothing to ‘wow’ me but great service with OK food. Even pre-pandemic I find myself cooking at home for great value and quality.

The problem was not enough help and too many customers AND...using the back door for carry out where the hot food is sitting and cold air blowing on it....we sent it back and 20 minutes later we had food that was warmer....still not hot..lukewarm pasty pasta is not a good thing !!
