Food was good. We were seated in a row of tables. Both tables on either side of us were empty when seated. Towards the middle of our meal parties were sat at both tables. We decided to leave because we felt both parties were too close, not a 6 foot distance.

Services has certainly changed. Took a long time to find honey for my tea. No one asked if we needed more bread and dipping sauce. Every time we dine at Bravo, we ordered Lobster Bisque soup, they always came with small pieces of shrimp. NOT THIS TIME! Also, they have removed the Reward Points System without notifying the customers. So, all our reward points disappeared.

We ate here after receiving a gift card. We where told Bravo is under new ownership. We have been a long time customer of Bravo dating back to a week after they first opened under the previous ownership Still had many of the same servers there Had great service . We ate outdoors so a little more noise but great food and plenty of it. Hope the new owners come up with a bravo rewards card as under the previous ownership though Look forward to dining again as we are a once a month or more diners at the restaurant.

The dinner was great. My only complaint was when I made the reservation I had asked for outdoor seating for 6:30 PM.(Open Table) I was told when we arrived they can't honor that request.
We had to be seated inside. The people we were with preferred the outdoor space but we made the best of it.
I wish I had been informed about the seating because I chose this restaurant because I knew they have a nice outdoor patio. Next time I will reconsider making the reservation.
Yes and No would I recommend Bravo.

Service was great. Food was disappointing.
They have changed the menu and don’t offer as many choices.
Calamari looked like rubber that was breaded. No flavor.
They had to substitute a different noodle for the Shrimp Diablo
They said food supplier changed. There were very few shrimp in the dish. Sauce was over spiced with red pepper. Chopped salad looked tired. Lettuce was brown in places.
The waiter and manager were very nice. Food quality was poor.

The food is still tasty but selection is a lot less. They want you to download an app to view the menu on your phone. We asked for a menu which was one sheet and it could be used as a placemat. If I wanted to order from an app on my phone I could have stayed home and had it delivered. Completely ruined the dine in experience for me. People are on their phones too much in restaurants anyway and this is having them do it even more so.

Bravo's is a very nice place to go but the food was marginal for an Italian eatery. Typically Italian restaurants are excellent places to go an have great food. I was very much unimpressed with the quality of the food. We had not been there for many years. It also should be noted that we will never go to Bravo's again. It was not good at all.

Everything was great! Bread & Oil, delicious! My husband got the Filet Mignon, was convinced it wasn't as it didn't taste as great as they usually do when he gets them elsewhere. I ordered spaghetti and it was extremely dry, not a huge fan of the basically no sauce but a few tomato chunks. Other than that, drinks were good, bread/oil delicious, server was super friendly. We also got the aged cheese dip, would have been better with softer bread. We also loved the laid back feeling in such a high class restaurant.

We showed up 15 minutes before our reservation and they said they were setting the table and it would be ready in a few minutes. 35 minutes later (20 minutes past the reservation) it was ready. The food was not very good and in fact my food was barely warm and the potatoes were cold. Our server was fine. The restaurant appeared dirty and worn. I always kid people that Olive Garden is not real Italian...but it would have been better. Will likely not return.
