Hostess and server were pleasant, and our server was very attentive. The salads were great, but the bread, entrees and drinks were only ok. Bread was hard and seemed slightly stale. My lasagna was not cold but definitely not hot, and I didn’t care for the taste given the Alfredo-type sauce all over the top. My husband’s chicken parm was hot and tasty, but his mule drink from the bar was not well-made, could only taste the bourbon. He likes bourbon but ordered a mule because he enjoys the flavor of that drink. The restaurant was unfortunately freezing, with drafts from the front and back doors blowing through the dining room constantly. We didn’t send back any part of our meal because we were on a time crunch and the staff seemed to be trying their best, but we won’t return.

They are short staffed but you'd never know it because it flows well. Food is always good, ambience as well. Maybe some were new and they seemed overwhelmed but did a good job

Food was really disappointing especially pasta dishes (one was well undercooked and the other too cooked ) and very expensive for such dishes. Went before and enjoyed it but very disappointed last night. Not recommended.

Hadn’t been to Bravo in awhile. Service was good, but food wasn’t hot and noodles were gummy and not tossed with the Alfredo sauce. A real disappointment.

The meatballs with ricotta came out with lukewarm meatballs and ice cold Ricotta cheese. The salad was as good as I remembered. The main meals were ok but not great. This place has definitely gone downhill from the last time I ate there. Not worth the trek.

Just so sad as this restaurant was always so crisp,clean and really top notch. It was sad to see all of the carry out pins on the shelve where the food was coming out. Baby boosters seats on top of the counters. Glasses dirty.
Food was good. But as I say. Not the pristine place it use to be. Hope they can reclaim their greatness

As regulars, we always enjoyed our visits, the quality of food and exemplary service. However, for the last several months, our Bravo location has been disappointing with a months-long disruption to serving exceptional flatbreads and pizzas because of an oven issue and recertification by local authorities, outages of wine and, in one visit, not giving us requested seating because they were expecting large parties; we ate and left with all our preferred seating still empty.

Last night started with learning, once again, their premium cabernet sauvignon was not available, neither was their standard label. But, it was more disappointing to get a flatbread that seemed to be made of a different dough; it looked good but was not the same.

As always, our server did her very best to suggest alternatives and accommodate us. Ask for Taylor, she is very good.

Bravo was outstanding, from the friendly greeting from the hostess to the courteous, friendly waitress. The food (meatballs, lobster bisque, chicken caprese, chicken scallopini, and eggplant parmesan) was fabulously delicious. Ambience was great and we had a great time. Will be back.

The service was very slow. Took 10 mins for someone to come to our table after being seated. Then when she came to our table, she never introduced herself. She just said “oh there’s 5 of you”. I had to introduce myself to find out her name. Then I’m looking at the drink menu to see what I’d like and she kept saying I’ll be back. I told her I’m ready to order apps and drinks and again she says I’ll be back. Finally get our drink and there’s another 15 mins before she come back. She just says “ready to order?”. So we order and the food gets to the table. We tell her we need silverware. She says okay I will get it. She leaves and our food is in front of us. We see her 2 mins later delivery food to a table next to us and then walks to another table to get their order. My wife jumps up and says can we get silverware? I’m understand being under staffed or busy but they only had every other table open for Covid so it was at 50% capacity. She’s a nice person but needs better training.

Due to Covid the Restaurant is observing social distance seating and we were very comfortable. They are short staffed and our waitress was doing the best she could do. She was perpetually on the move. Since our table was meeting for the first time in a long time, we didn’t mind waiting for her attention.
Once ordered the food came quickly and was delicious! The mozzarella salad was first rate and we finished with the wonderful tiramisu dessert.
