Excellent food, wine list and service. Excellent value for the quality.
This our third time meeting here for lunch. The food is always very good. And the service impeccable. We have already decided to come back for our next get together.
Great Caesar salad with chicken. Perfect. Great turkey sandwich. All really just right!!!
So disappointing. We eat lunch at Bravo often and always enjoy it. Dinner last night was a bomb. The chicken parm entirely ordinary— needs seasoning. Chicken cut too thick.
But the grilled salmon was the really big problem —awful. Had an odd taste and served over mushy sweet potatoes and red peppers with limp asparagus. Maybe the fish was wild salmon which I always dislike. It just had a bad taste.
The Caesar salad was excellent.
The help was running around and not making eye contact. I had a hard time getting the fish back for more time - it was raw on the first try .... and then they didn’t bring it back for so long my husband had his meal without me.
Just a bad night there. Sorry to say.
Greeted warmly and quickly and seated quickly. Chairs are wood; Waited brought comfortable chairs. Thank you. Took order for drinks. Took orders for apps and dinner. The hostess sat a family with a screaming baby directly behind us. We asked to be moved. She quickly agreed and sat us outside in the dining area. Appetizers arrived before wine which took forever; came with the meal? The waiter recommended zucchini strips. No salt or pepper on them; did not eat them. The wedding soup was very good. The pizza was very good but the soft crust in center needed to cook more (or oven hotter)? Salmon was cooked as directed but so encrusted with salty seasoning, I could not eat it. Left it on the plate. When the waiter finally returned to ask how things were, it was too late. No adjustments were offered for zucchini not eaten or half of the salmon. We told him the zucchini was not appetizing and the salmon was over seasoned. No comment from him. We paid for our bill. We had a better experience before with Jason, the waiter. Thanks for listening.
Jason is great
Service was awful
Fantastic service- everything from the host(s) to the waiter! Delish food that our server recommended as well!!! Will def come back.
Great service and great food. Kid friendly.
Excellent eggplant parm. Margarita flatbread was good, too. Service excellent
First time back since they did a little housekeeping and changed the menu a bit. The food is still good and the service was great. My husband had the shrimp scampi and I had the grilled Salmon. They were both very good. We also tried the fried zucchini as an appetizer which was delicious. Very thin strings quickly fried and not greasy at all. My peach Sangria was also very good
Food was very good, generous portions and very reasonably price. The service was disappointing because it was too slow. That is strange because less than a third of the tables were occupied and plenty of wait staff.
The service was great
Bravo is good for inexpensive Italian food. Very loud. Service was spotty. They did not have a table for us even though I made a reservation 2 days earlier. Tried to put us outside on a chilly night, then in a cold back conference room. Would recommend with warning.
Good place overall however drinks very slow to come out and dinner portion very small and somewhat pricey. Only have thick spaghetti, no angel hair
The food is really very good. We’ve been 4 times since the format and menu change each time people seem really eager to please but service is a beat slow and no matter what we order the food either cools down quickly or is tepid to start. Really want this place to succeed and hope for piping hot soup next time.
I will definitely be making another reservation in the near future. The food is really delicious and don't get me started on the tiramisu...
Great food & service. Staff was accommodating. We’ll be back!
Food is ok but not up to Brio level ambiance needs help lower ceiling increase and improve music get some atmosphere!!! Service was very good
Food is great....but alcohol is over priced! $5 for a bottle of domestic beer!
I called Bravo's the night before to confirm that our reservation for 8 people for 6:00 was confirmed and that we would have enough time to dine before leaving at 7:30. Although the food was very good the evening was a disaster! When 8 of us arrived (all there more than a few minutes early) we learned our reservation had been cancelled - certainly not by us. We informed the hostess that we must leave by 7:30 and waited about 10 minutes for a table where we immediately told our waitress that we had theater tickets and must leave by 7:30. We ordered drinks as soon as we were seated, asked for dinner menus and ordered our dinners when our drinks were served. Salads came around 7:00 and dinner at 7:10 at which time we asked for our checks so we could leave promptly at 7:30. We were forced to eat quickly so we could leave on time while several of the folks in our group searched for our waitress since checks had not arrived. At 7:30 some went out to drive the cars up while several of the men in our group talked with the manager and tried to speed up the process of paying. The stress was not worth the quality of the food and we all left angry at the restaurant staff. To make matters worse, when I arrived home I had an email that our reservation had been cancelled - time of email 5:27. We had left for the restaurant at 5:25.
Great attentive service, good food, nice ambiance. Will visit again
Food was fresh,delicious and varied. Great specials on drinks . Good live music
The service that we received was outstanding but I thought that the food quality and selection was mediocre at best.
This is a new restaurant that needs a little fine tuning. The food was enjoyable. Service while pleasant was a little lacking on communication. While one person takes your order another person brings the food. There has to be some system so that the person bringing the food knows to which person each order is delivered to. Bread was served mid way through the meal and parmesan was not offered. I have confidence that this restaurant will perfect the service with time.
Really nice ambiance ... open and very contemporary. Service was excellent. Seemed to have a very enthusiastic staff. Everyone was quite nice.
Ah, the food! For the value everything was pretty good. Nothing spectacular ... somewhat pedestrian, but decent. I guess my biggest gripe regarding Bravo as well as restaurants similar to Bravo, is they don't know how to properly cook pasta. It shouldn't be a lump of mushy noodles, but cooked "al dente."
I ordered Chicken Parm. It was good, not great. Same for the dish ordered by my wife; chicken marsalla.
Overall, Bravo was a positive experience.
Good food! Friendly servers, but the service was slow.
I would recommend although my experience wasn't great. My caesar salad was sloppy and overloaded with parmesan. My alfredo primavera was pretty buy overly dry and hard to eat and overseasoned. I don't like a lot of salt. Also there was something in there spicy hot that burned my tongue. The old Bravo's was better although your menu is much better. Hopefully it will be better next time and not so loud. I am bringing a party of 18 on Christmas Eve for a private room and have my reservation set.
Food was excellent! Mom had Shrimp Spiedini and I had the Veal Parmigiana. Both were fresh and very tasty. Kim was our server. She was very patient, polite, and attentitive making the dinner even more enjoyable. Hats off to Bravo!
Diversified and well priced menu. Staff was friendly and helpful with menu choices. We will definitely dine here again. Our food was good.
Recent change in menu has been favorable.
Lighting could be reduced for more relaxed feel.
Overall, was good to e joy food and service
The service was exceptional with managers coming to check on the service and a very attentive server. The food was prepared well, served hot and the portions were generous.
My first visit to Bravo with family. I can't say enough about our experience. Food was exceptional.
Waiter was prompt and very helpful on selection choices. We were ALL very pleased. Would highly recommend on our experience. We did go at a slower time, 4:00pm on a Saturday. Started to get busy as we were leaving. One final thing, their crispy shrimp appetizer was to die for.
Our waiter, Johnnie, is very attentive. The new management aims for perfection. It’s a real pleasure and the Halibut was delicious.
Much better than Coastal Bravo. Food and service was great! Great menu, many new things I want to try.
Chef does great job balancing decadent food without feeling like a gut-bomb. Loved the Alfredo with Chicken and Spinach. Bread service yeah! Only complaint - olives should have pits!
The food was nice, especially for a chain and fairly priced. What got my attention was the friendliness of all staff members we met and the extraordinary service. Everyone had smiles and were helpful. A great vibe in this place. Really great vibe.
Wonderful experience at this dog friendly establishment. Outside patio was comfortable and well staffed. John, our server, was attentive and professional. Very enjoyable evening.
This restaurant changed ownership and has an entirely new theme of Italian. I varied in my points given because it has a very different noise level and ambiance depending on where one sits. We sat on the outside patio where it is quieter but the inside is vibrant. Our waiter, Johnnie, was exceptional in his attention to details and his obvious desire to please us. He made the evening even more pleasurable. It was such a nice experience with quality food and service that we went back a second night and we experienced the same. We will definitely be going again and can recommend it.
We ate lunch at Bravo the day after it converted to the new format and menu. We had been avoiding this restaurant in its earlier style and found it to be a major improvement. Good new menu choices. We’ll be back. Keep up the improvement!
Took way to long to get our food. Soup was OK and flat bread was good. Everything else was too spicy.
