Great service and wonderful food as usual. Bravo is a large restaurant but it still has the ability to make your dining experience more intimate. Highly recommend you try it soon.

Waiter did not know what he was doing. We were never asked what we would like to drink. My order came out wrong & the correct order was over cooked. We were never asked if we would like dessert. I did. We watched the waiter serve a couple other tables and he was getting their orders incorrect too. One couple were never waited on & ended up leaving. I will say, in the past we have always had great service & delicious meals.

Server was untrained and inattentive.
Restaurant was empty, yet kitchen was “overwhelmed”
Service was very slow.
Assuming this is typical of staffing shortage being experienced in many restaurants.

Food needed some help. Wife’s dish was super bland and yet was supposed to even have chili flakes. My dish was bland and lacking sauce. Half of my noodles didn’t even have sauce. Brighter side, tons of shrimp on my dish.

This place has gone WAY down hill unfortunately, went the other week night & had the worst service & experience I have ever had in a restaurant, short staffed & a manager who does not care to make your experience better … do not waste your time or money here considering it’s so expensive .. go to Biagis or Spezia :)

Omar, our server, had zero interest in providing service. The minute we sat at the table he asked if we were ready to order. We asked for a few minutes to have time to look at the menu and it took him 20 minutes to come back or even offer drinks. Terrible terrible service

When we arrived our server was very attentive. However when 2 or 3 more tables came we turned invisible. No replenished drinks, food served between room temperature to cold. No one came to check if we even had the correct orders let alone the food was cold. Could not get Antibes attention. Ended up eventually sending the food back and having it taken off the ticket and left hungry. Bad bad.

The service was average at best on a Friday night. We had to wait over 10 minutes before the server came to the table. The Chicken was supposed to be crisp and wasn’t. Too much cheese was placed on the dish. The server didn’t return to our table to check up on us until I waved him over and asked for the check and takeout container.

Always a lovely place to sit outside and have some apps. The Italian soup is perfect for light dinner. Wait staff is all new and seem to be trying hard, with minimal past experience, to meet the customer’s needs. Post Covid world…..I just appreciate effort. Thank you

Food was good, however we were first seated outside, waited for 20 minutes and never had a server come to our table. Then we moved inside due to bees, and waited another 10 minutes before having our drink orders taken. I’m not faulting anyone, they seemed to be short-staffed, only writing this as a heads up to anyone else that may be interested in going.

We sat on the patio, our waiter seemed overwhelmed, the waiter brought our first order of drinks and said are you ready to order dinner, we were not offered appetizers, no bread was ever brought to our table. Felt like the waiter was trying to rush us.

The restaurant was not busy at the time of our reservation 6pm Friday (more than 1/2 the tables empty). The service was horrible. It took over 1 hour to get our food with the appetizer arriving at the same time as the entree and it was cold. Refills on iced tea and wine were very slow. We had to ask for silverware multiple times.

As for noise? We sat outside. Every time someone opened the front door, it squeaked on closing. It could heard from the car 80 feet away.

I did approach the hostess to let her know we were still waiting for appetizers after 1 hour. Her response was unimpressive. The manager never did stop by to ask about our experience.

The mgmt team was clearly oblivious to any of the service issues. I would not recommend dining here until there is an overhaul of leadership with a focus that centers around guest experience. Oh, and oil the hinges on the door (right side).

Zero stars was not an option.

Order was incorrect for half of our group. I had to walk to a separate server to have our glasses refilled. Ordered deserts, but they never came after 15 min. Server said they were too busy to make them. Terrible experience tonight. Had positive ones before.

I can’t rate them in any of the categories because we weren’t able to eat there. We made a reservation on OpenTable for 6:00 on 8/1. It was my wife’s birthday and we drove 20 miles from our home to Bravo. When we arrived, a sign on the door said they were closed for maintenance. So why was I able to make a reservation on OpenTable? I called the next day and the man that answered said they had a broken pipe in the kitchen and that the hostess was supposed to contact everyone who made a reservation. That didn’t happen. Oh, and as a bonus, when we arrived there, a food delivery person was there to pick up an order for someone. That poor guy probably got yelled at by the customer and he didn’t have anything to do with their incompetence to notify customers making reservations and placing orders on line that they were closed.

The only problem was that the Marsala sauce and the linguine was overly salted. Permit was because it was rather late that we ate Abs I’m sure the sauces were prepared early in the day

Food is wonderful (especially the ravioli appetizer), but it was close to 2 hours from being seated until our check was brought. We have 2 small kids and service was too long at each step from getting our drink orders to bringing them out, to waiting 20 minutes for a water refill. They weren't especially packed, so I think it was just the pace in there. Their servers also didn't know much about the menu. We had kids meals and we're charged for kids milks. When I asked about it on the bill and said, it even says it's included on the kids menu, she argued with me that it wasn't even when I could physically show her the wording on their coloring sheets . By that point I think we were all frustrated and just wanted to get out of there. Food is worth it, but be prepared for a long evening.

Went to Bravo three days after reopening. Our waiter was good. Our drinks were very slow to arrive (bartenders are learning). The menu is small and the portions are bigger than previously. There was no calorie information and no "lite' menu. It was a 2 hour experience....but we will return.

given the circumstances during the coronavirus we had a very nice server and the food was good - whoever made our drinks needed more experience - i had to have my cosmopolitan remade because they used peach schnapps and then the second one was still not very good.
