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.

Not much on chains but we really like Bravo for the quality of the food and the price especially at this location! Always good.They also do a great job of adapting to less capacity, and cleanliness. Remember folks they are doing the best they can with the circumstances they are forced to deal with and we think they do a great job!

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.

Once again...cold food !! It's inexcusable to service food that is lukewarm at best. 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 !!

In the past we always enjoyed our visits to Bravo. Not this time. Our server seemed disinterested and unavailable.
My shrimp scampi was served on a bed of semi cooked spaghetti with little sauce My chopped salad was tired and soupy with dressing. Two pork chop orders were alright while the chicken Marsala was more gravy than sauce.

We had a reservation but didn't get food for over an hour.
Worse waitress we ever had and we are very easy customers. She barely said anything to us. Not friendly at all.
Never given a tip less than 15% but just couldn't give her even that. Don't even know her name. One of her other tables got up and left before even ordering.

Beware Open Table Users! The Bravo staff will not notify Open Table when you honor your reservation and you will get flagged as a degenerate and forced to explain yourself! This has happened more than once at Bravo. Also, we ordered coffee at the end of our meal and 20 minutes later we had to find Ashley our server who claimed the 1/2 full restaurant was out of clean coffee cups. She returned within minutes with our coffee, clearly she forgot and lied.
