Terrible service. It was a Wednesday night and the dining room was half full. Service was the worst I have had in a very long time. Manager was awesome and he apologized and did the work the server couldn’t seem to do with having only two tables

Drinks was on point! Food was delicious! The most important thing of our evening was the Waitress we had. She was phenomenal! Crystal is probably one of the best waitresses we ever had. She checked on us so many times I can remember when she didn’t. She definitely a great part of the restaurant! We’ll be back again because of her Awesome Customer Servicr🙂

Have not been to Bravo for some time due to Covid. It was a pleasurable experience with good food, nice atmosphere, and our server Nate was excellent. By coincidence he was the same server we had in the past. We will look for his area to sit the next time we are there.

Came here for my birthday lunch with family. The waitress was HORRIBLE! You can easily tell she did not want to be there. We informed her that we were there for a birthday. No effort to make the lunch memorable.

Food: the food was good but downside, there was hair in my food so I sent it back.

The food and old fashion drink saved the meal but overall, very disappointed.

Great, tried and true place, but our last visit was about Tinesha. She was relatively busy, but let us know she would be with us ASAP. That never happens anymore. I guess she didn't get the memo about mediocre service being acceptable. We ordered our usual bottle of cabernet, but were informed they were out...supply chain issues??? Whatever! Tinesha to the rescue; she recommended the Chloe merlot. I was skeptical, but said okay. It was great! It had deep fruit overtones and was much more complex than most mid-priced merlots. Our food was prepared perfectly and Tinesha made sure I had pasta instead of mashed potatoes with my steak. My wife and I were very impressed by our last visit and hope we see this wonderful lady again when we stop by. THANK YOU, Tinesha!

We ate outside. Our server was definitely more focused on her indoor tables. But the bugs were more focused on us. So many small gnat-like insects that kept landing on everything. The food was amazing; the overall experience, not so much.

We had a birthday celebration and our waiter was amazing. He took all of our orders without writing them down and everything was correct. He made sure we were always well taken care of and even helped with the cake part. He alone made our experience amazing. I cannot recall his name but we were the large group in the private area. This will definitely be a new spot for our celebrations.

7:15 reservation was on-time, there was no wait for our table. Dining Caption chose a large booth for us which was backed by a service station, with linens and silverware bins and squirrel machine directly adjacent from the open kitchen. The kitchens expeditor was loud and conversation interrupting. Occasionally we had to stop talking in order to not be drowned out.
The elephant in the room was not the decor, or seating position, or even the food....Service at Bravo would be somewhat of an oxymoron. Saying the serviced was not up to par would be a kind statement. We felt like it was a service training dinner for the benefit of staff to get use to how to speak to and answer questions for there Waiter 101 class. Drinks "yes please, I'll have a double Grey Goose and Tonic with lime". 10 minute later my drink came.....without the limes. "Excuse me, could you get the limes...."? 8 minute later they came. Based on getting our drink order slowly we thought to order our starters and entrees right away. Chicken Park and Shrimp/Lobster Linguini. Calamari was on-time and serviced with two sauces. It tasted great, was very hot and the sauces were better than expected, worth the $12.50. I was out of drink looking for the waiter again for a refill. I finally caught him and he returned with the correct drink in good time. "...would you like bread and oil...."? "yes Please".....another 10 minutes and nothing, I finally caught our waiter walking by and asked him for the bread which came in a few more minutes. Our Entrees were served by an expeditor and on initial review the portions were generous and piping hot. My entree was good. Shrimp is always tough and easy to over cook. This was done very well and not cooked to death. My partners Chicken Parm was good and plentiful. We ordered two Creme Brûlée ramekins. It was sweet and had a little bit of a crust on it, nothing to write home about but I think it would be worth $7.95.

Service was poor, food was decent.

Not the Bravo of years ago. The server was a bit scattered, rushed, and forgetful. My wife’s Marsala tasted a little off.
The interior is starting to look aged. Not the vibe and atmosphere of 10yrs ago.

Positives-
They honored our request to move to a different table.
My Chicken Parmesan was very good.
The head of the kitchen came out and talked to my wife’s friend when the dish she ordered wasn’t quite right.

My friend and I started out with a great cocktail. We then both had one of the combos. My friend had a salad and I the lobster bisque which both were very good. We each chose the shrimp scampi which was a sufficient portion for lunch. All in all our lunch was very good as was our server Gloria.

The food was good, our waiter was very attentive and I came with a friend and we were able to talk easily without any disturbances.
The only thing that I was disappointed in was the menu choices. The choices have been reduced considerably since Covid-19.

We went for my birthday, told server and others and there was no birthday celebration (with covid it’s whatever) salad came out wrong the first time but when it was right it was delicious. The rest of our food was great. Took 20 minutes to get a drink from the bar once we sat at our table. Our server had a great personality just poor service. Multiple times within the meal we had empty drink glasses (soda/water) for 5+ minutes

Alyssa or Alecia was our waitress. Was rude to us from the start, and rude to the two ladies who were sitting next to us. We had heard her reply to them “what do you need” and ran off from the table. It was my birthday she had asked for my ID and refused to believe it was me at first till I thoroughly explained it was me and was willing to show a picture of it since it was my 21st birthday. The Food was excellent except we had placed an order for extra bread and never received that. Thankyou for taking the time to read this.

This is my favorite salad at Bravo! Delicious salmon, but unfortunately it was rare in the middle at this visit and the asparagus was thick and woody in places. I was quite disappointed since I was introducing a new potential customer to Bravo.
Our service was okay, but our server didn’t smile and seemed rather grumpy. He must have been having a bad day.

Food was very good. Service was awful. In his defense, our waiter seemed to have a lot of tables. He was extremely busy. I’m sure the restaurant is understaffed as most places are right now. However, it ruined our experience. We were dining for my son’s birthday. Our waiter didn’t greet us or introduce himself, barely spoke to us, and it was extremely uncomfortable. Felt like we were bothering him by being there. Food came out quickly, but everything else took a very long time- putting in orders, getting our bill, etc.
