Rooted in the historic Moore Square Park in downtown Raleigh, Brewery Bhavana is a gathering place celebrating communal beer experiences that exhibit the hand of the maker. Brewery, dim sum restaurant, flower shop, and bookstore, Bhavana is our love letter to a community that has given us so much.
We look forward to seeing you!
Simply the best meal I’ve ever had in Raleigh! Fabulous wait staff, beautiful ambiance. Creative, delicious food!
Great server! Already booked our next visit!
Wonderful and delicious.
It was just fantastic
Great beer, great scene, really interesting food, kind and generous wait staff, this place is a delight
This place never disappoints. Food, beer, and service are top notch.
Never write reviews but this place exceeded expectations. Food was awesome! Waiters were great!
Heard great things and it lived up to the hype. The General Tso’s chicken was excellent and the beer was excellent as well.
My wife is a vegetarian and there were very few options available. She ordered the crab croquettes, all three of them for $15; that is $5 per croquette with just a very light splattering of sauce rubbed on the small plate. Slightly overpriced??? Lacking value one can say. Need to broaden menu for gluten-free, vegetarian diners.
Very wonderful space! The waitress was very kind and helpful. For about $50, my sister and I got 2 glasses of wine, one appetizer, and one entree. We ate the food family style as it was recommended by the server and it was very filling. I would definitely go back again! The only downside is we could not get a reservation until 10 PM.
A birthday dinner for our daughter. Very well looked after, we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
our out of town guests loved it, and that is always fun
It was a 5 star experience. There was 4 of us for a pre symphony dinner. From the time I made the reservation online to receiving reminders to being seated in a perfect location to the incredible wait staff, Selma in particular...it was a perfect setting to kick off the holiday season for us. The food was flavorful and plentiful...well done.
Our waitress was fantastic. Wish it wasn’t quite so noisy.
Food was good but thought fish dish was little bland and chicken dumplings very pedestrian.
We absolutely love this restaurant - the food is always amazing:)
We loved the comfortable yet elegant atmosphere. The menus for both food and brewery had very helpful and accurate descriptions. The food and beer were excellent. The service was fantastic, warm and welcoming. A unique and wonderful experience.
Amazing food all the time!
I would have given service 5 stars except the restaurant doesn’t offer black table napkins. Petty I know, but if you’ve ever worn a black skirt or pants you know the white lint that’s left after you use a white napkin. I prefer not to have to use a lint brush after dining at a high end restaurant of Brewery Bhavana’s caliber.
This is such a special dining place. The food is so delicious and the service is great. This was my second time going but will go back again and again.
Excellent food and beer!
Wonderful atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, delicious beer and yummy food. I’m excited I was finally able to visit this place and plan to do it again soon!
This is the second time I have been here and it was just as amazing as the first! There are so many tasty items on the menu it’s hard to pick! Definitely suggested getting a few small plates and just 1/2 entrees depending on how many people you are. Well worth waiting the 4ish weeks you need to wait to get a reservation on the weekends!
Fantastic food and service! Love bringing out of town visitors here.
We went here for our engagement dinner. Service and food was amazing! They even gave us a flower and sparkling wine at the end of our meal. Highly recommend the Peking Duck! Well worth it! However it was a little dark for us in the restaurant.
I love everything about this establishment! The food is expensive, but the quality is there to justify it. Huge selection and variety of crafted beers. Service was EXCELLENT!!! Bar was crowded and everyone was vying for the bartenders attention. He made sure to acknowledge everyone and in time had everyone efficiently served. Also, we left our doggie bag and Craig chased us down the block to make sure we got it. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!
The food was delicious but most importantly, our server Savannah was excellent. She was patient with us as we took our time deciding. She had excellent suggestions, and she knew the menu front and back.
An delightful explosion of tastes and texture. Kenneth was first class as our server. Family from Vermont were pretty much blown away. Can't wait to go back.
Great service and great food!
The hospitality and the ambience at Brewery Bhavana elevate an every day dining experience. We weren’t celebrating a special occasion but just being there made the day special. Thank you for another lovely meal!
Great food and atmosphere!!
Hands down this place was phenomenal. The food was so excellent. I cannot stress enough that you should always get the pork/bone marrow small plate and the soup dumplings. Please just order them. The bone marrow was so decadent and rich and I could not get enough. I adored the soup dumplings as well. The broth that came pouring out once the dumpling was pierced was just exceptional. This was my best restaurant experience in quite some time. Fantastic and I will recommend this spot to anyone who will listen.
The ambiance is the best part of this place. Food was very good, a little on the pricey side for the portions.
Great staff that were super personable and thoughtful. Food was everything we’ve heard and more. 10/10.
Excellent as always. Absolutely LOVE this place. Asian food is not even my favorite type of food, but this is without a doubt one of my favorite restaurants ever. When you first go, it’s tough to decide what to get if your not overly familiar with Asian cuisine and flavors. Try new things is all I have to say. The dish I thought I like least is my absolute favorite; Shanghai mooncakes. GET THEM you will not be sorry. With that said I also love the general tso’s, green beans, noodles (with chicken 🤤) and others both those for me were all beyond exceptional. I had family in from out of town, some of whom can be picky eaters, they loved it all!
Thank you again a Bhavana for a delicious dinner. Are you again soon! 😊❤️🤤
It was fantastic
Amazing food, great beer. A must visit in Raleigh.
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday and had the best time. Hands down my favorite restaurant with the most flavorful food & perfect service
