Have been to this location before and it was good but this time it was a total mess. Our waitress who began politely enough became angry at something that was going on at another table. It seemed like she was mad at one of the employees at the restaurant who was seating people. After a while she was okay but when she served food items instead of walking around the table she reached over and people on the other side had to reach for their food. It also took some time to get bread and oil. This would not have bothered us at all except another table who came in 10 minutes after us sat down and received the bread and oil before us.
When the food did come two of us had to send it back because it wasn't hot.
Another annoying thing was the person responsible for getting the orders ready in the kitchen area. She was shouting orders all night and instead of a nice relaxing dinner we had to hear her shouting all night.
The following morning I received an e-mail from Open Table stating that we didn't show up for the reservation so that was more time I had to take to send a response back with information from my receipt showing we were there. Just not a good experience!
I like Bravo restaurant and I would recommend it to people just not this location.

Five of us thought the food and the service (Larry) were excellent. We had to wait a bit past our reservation time but the host on duty comped us a couple of appetizers....not necessary but very much appreciated. Larry was attentive without hovering and seems to clearly enjoy his job, which was refreshing. Our only issue was the noise level....we were seated in front of the open kitchen where there was one particular very loud voice that was really distracting...enough to interfere with our conversation at the table. However, overall, the five of us left feeling very good about our dining experience. And again, five stars to Larry.

Other than the atmosphere not being the same as other Bravo restaurants, it was blatantly obvious that all black guests were seated in the back corner of the restaurant with the red carpet. The manager explained that that was the way the rotation fell, however, it was a painfully obvious observation that every black patron was seated in the back corner. The manager handled the complaint well when another guest brought it to her attention but perhaps the team at this location should engage in training on implicit bias.

We have had many very good experiences at the McKnight Road Bravo location. This unfortunately was not one of them. A always I made a reservation through Open Table. We arrived a few minutes before our 7pm reservation and checked in at the hostess station. After 25 minutes of waiting and noticing what seemed to be people arriving for later reservations being seated I went back to the hostess station to see what the delay was. I found out we had not been checked in properly and were not on the list to be seated. The error was corrected but we had to wait another 10 minutes to finally be seated. A 7pm reservation turned into a 7:35pm seating.

I liked the previous décor better. The food is about the same as before the reboot. It is good quality and you get a lot for the price. The bread is still awesome! Our server was friendly and pleasant but not attentive, we had to waive him down a couple of times for water refill, etc.

We planned to visit another restaurant to celebrate Valentine’s Day. However, we received an email from Bravo with your Valentine’s dinner specials, including the Chilean sea bass. . We decided to go there remembering that that option used to be part of your menu years ago. We ordered that selection for dinner, and it was outstanding. We asked to speak to the manager to express our gratitude for such a delicious meal, and we told her that it was perfection on a plate. Our overall experience was favorable and we plan to visit again.

Was nice as it usually is . But I told them of my shellfish allergy of course before touching anything. Dinner was fine, I didn’t seem to have an reaction to that. But we ordered a flatbread pizza to go, and as o ate that back at my hotel, I started having a reaction. Hank God it wasn’t real severe as they usually are, but you have got to stay up on top of this type of thing. I believe waitress didn’t tell them the second time when putting order in to go, neither did I tell the waitress, I assumed they would have recognized the table of which already noted shellfish allergy. So I would say to everyone, if you put to go order in, don’t just assume that any restaurant will use the noted allergy just because it came from same table with the noted allergies. Either I suffered for few days, but I’m here to tell story. Someone’s not telling it for me lol
