Brewery
Sanskrit for cultivating, the seed of Brewery Bhavana was born from within our community of makers and dreamers with a shared vision: to create community through our humble offerings.

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!

This restaurant/book store/flower shop is absolutely uniquely stunning!! The food, environment, and service are by far one of the best dining experiences I’ve had during my visit to NC. My friends and mine experience was punctuated with an extremely pleasant conversation with one the owners. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Lively, casual scene. Perhaps not the place to go if you're looking for a quiet, romantic meal...but great drinks, fantastic dim sum, and a very good vibe.

Jamie was amazing. She was super helpful, considerate, and went above and beyond to make sure that we were getting exactly what we wanted/needed. Plus, she was very friendly and sweet the entire evening. The food was delicious! As were the beverages. The atmosphere was energetic, sure, though borderline too loud for easy conversation to take place. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Brewery Bhavana to anyone and would come back in the future!

It's hard to find anything wrong with Brewery Bhavana...they are running on all cylinders, from ambiance, temperature, food quality, service and value. I personally have a thing for the beef and peppers dish....a great choice if you like "spicy" and meat. That said, BB is vegan-friendly as well!

Some nice dishes and food quality particularly for Raleigh. In a big foodie city e.g. NY it would just be good relatively speaking, but in Raleigh it’s definitely one of the top dining places. Their beer is very interesting and tasty.

I've been to Brewery Bhavana a dozen times at this point, and every subsequent visit exceeds the last. The food is always amazing, the beer list is ever-growing and phenomenal, and the service has never been less than excellent. I have had anniversaries there, business meetings, and client lunches. It's the best place in town, bar none!

Overall pretty underwhelming. Food was ordinary and prices were high. Expected much more as so difficult to get a reservation. Waitress asked if this was a special occasion and I said yes we just bought a house in Raleigh. She said nice. But that was it. No offer of a drink or appetizer. Plus the staff looking to push you out to free up table ASAP. Not much to feel good about for $140 for 2.

Perfect spot for an anniversary. We celebrated our 31st & were brought Champagne on the house. Food is awesome! & service is even better. I love their Grove IPA beer! Visit, browse the books, drink, eat and enjoy!!!

It is a very nice place for dinner or hangout especially for intellectuals and the younger crowd. The food is great and the presentation is greater.

I recently visited Brewery Bhavana for the second time in as many years and it's still as great as I remembered. The service, the quality of the food, and the ambiance all combined for a wonderful evening.

The food is wonderful, the service was good. The only things that could use some improvement was the ambient noise was a little loud and our table was pretty tiny, but with how busy the restaurant is I can understand why the tables are tightly packed.

Had the sweetest waitor, Daniel, who was extremely informative and attentive. We made reservations online and were thankfully sat down promptly. The food was amazing and came out very quickly. It was fun to shop around the retail space during our short wait. Will be coming back!

I have been here a few occasions and have always loved the food. This trip I wasn’t that impressed... I feel the quality of the flavors was not up to my experiences in the past. Maybe it was just an off day in the kitchen

Excellent all around. A special dining experience. It's our go to restaurant to bring out of town guests. Really enjoyed the pork sand chive shumai, the green beans, the gan lan and the Congee. Only gripe was the music - annoying selections - too much percussion and the acoustics are poor.

This was a great dining experience for my friend and me. Arriving early for our reservation, we bellied up to the bar, where the bartender offered helpful beer suggestions based on what each of us liked, and even poured samples to make sure his recommendations suited us. The personal touch extended to our server when we were seated: For me, the waiter pointed out his favorite vegetarian selections, and highlighted the best dishes with vegetarian options. He also drew attention to the best pescatarian choices for my friend. Everything we ordered was excellent. Having already had drinks at the bar, we decided to moderate and split a beer with dinner, which they happily accommodated with two glasses. Overall, an excellent experience!
