Food was generally good, but the soup appetizer was only warm. Waitress was pleasant and courteous but not very attentive. Probably the effects of the pandemic, but the restaurant seemed a little run down and unkempt.

We went for Mother's day and I ordered filet med well and it came rare. The mash potatoes were surrounded by a poll of blood. Our waitress was no where to be found. We asked the busboy for her, no reply. We asked the bartender for her, no reply. Finally the bartender came over himself after 25 minutes and asked if we needed boxes. He looked down at my plate and said, "Oh you need a steak, that's not cooked." By then we just wanted to go home. I told him two other tables by us left because no one waited on them since they were seated. Our waitress finally showed up after 35 minutes offered us free desert and told us she got pulled away by the manger. Needless to say this was not a good experience.

We attended the happy hour in the bar. It has been extended and runs 3pm-7pm weekdays to help alleviate crowding. The service was outstanding and the happy hour food has the same quality as the food during full price hours. Social distances were maintained. The wine selection is great. It’s my go to when the wife shops and we want to enjoy some time together.

Have dined here numerous times and have always had a great meal, along with exceptional service. Pasta and meatballs is my favorite and I had 2 more meals left to take home to enjoy. Music is always pleasant, as is the ambience. Easy parking and choice of indoor/outdoor. Our go to place for lunch or dinner. Try the tiramisu for dessert.

Bravo is always a fine place to eat. A couple of issues this time: I asked the waiter if the spaghetti Bolognese was spicy. He said no, but it was, and I had to trade meals with my husband so that I wouldn’t suffer from acid reflux at night. Also, the raspberry iced tea was very weak. He said that they couldn’t add more raspberry flavoring, and he didn’t offer an alternative. The waiter was very friendly and courteous, though. I have been to Bravo many times and recommend it to my friends.

Went out to Bravo @ the Waterfront for a birthday meal
Vickie waited on us and was terrific. The meals were great
Chicken Marsala was delicious and the grilled salmon outstanding. Meals were served hot and presentation perfect. The tiramisu desert was served with a side of ice cream.
We were impressed and will be back.

this was a first time at this location. We ordered the calamari to start. it was awful way over done, but we did not complain. I had the salmon it was delicious and my husband had the chicken pasta which was also very good. Service was adequate but not special. over all value was ok. Rethinking probably should have gone with 3 stars over all. but it is a tweezer. So maybe 3.5 :)

20 minutes to order.. 45 minutes to get salads, no bacon on salad once presented to us.. spaghetti came out cold and hard. For a chain restaurant that was empty (social distancing) with a lot of staff, poor experience. Never saw a manager. We complained to waitress with nothing more than a sorry it’s just not ready yet. Table next to us was seated after us, had their meals before we even had our salad. Customers are not idiots. Will not be back to this location.
