BRAVO Cucina Italiana - Omaha - Village Pointe
Our group had an enjoyable celebration! Our waiter was polite, food served in a timely manner and it was a nice environment!
The place seemed low staffed. Our server was also cleaning tables and hustling everywhere. Our bill was nearly $100 but we had empty drinks and the food was so-so. We had visited this place years ago when we were in town and loved it. However it seems management has either changed or it's gone downhill.
Had the fried Catfish, best I’ve had by far.
Service was excellent. No complaints.
Pricing is competitive with equal type restaurants. Wish they had more outdoor seating available. They have a very nice view of the pond but were seating very few people outside. I guess they don’t have enough wait staff for the huge outdoor patio. It was a very nice and pleasant day too.
Took my wife and son to Charlie’s for Mother’s Day. Had the prime rib and Ultimate dinner for two. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! The martinis were very good also!
The food was fabulous and our server was top notch (20 year old male and I wish I could remember his name as he was spectacular!) we were visiting Omaha from GA attending Berkshire Hathaway meeting. Our server was very knowledgable about the menu, both food and drink. He told us about the special which we shared as did our friends. All wonderful!
Good location, good food, great table service . reservations are iffy.
We eat here every 6-weeks or so and it's generally solid! Last Saturday, however, was a mess. We were seated at 6:15 and ordered at 6:30. Our entrée arrived (we did not order appetizers) at 7:10. Missed the first 5-minutes of our movie.
We ordered cod, steak and prime rib. I went to the restaurant because I had a desire for seafood. The cod was basically tasteless. Maybe they need to stop using parmesan crust and just broil it. Steak and prime rib were fine.
Our server was great, food was fast and delicious! It was the perfect ambiance to celebrate our Anniversary! We would definitely go back.
Had 8pm reservation but upon arrival 10 minutes before our reservation time we were informed it could be around a 30 minute wait because they were short staffed. Not off to a good start. However, once we were seated the server was good and the food was good, a bit pricey but that was expected.
Made a reservation and asked for outdoor seating but the hostess told us it would be an hour wait. So we settled for a crappy table
With no view. You’d think with a reservation you’d get priority of where to sit. Service was horrible,, had to ask for everything...
We had a wonderful new server who did a remarkable job for somebody who was training. We would have never known that had she not told us. Great meal, great service, and wonderful salads! I had requested a booth and we got a perfect one. Nice night!!!
Charlie's is a always a relaxing place for small groups to get together. The food has always been very good and the menu offers sufficient variety to satisfy most diners. The service was very good.
Our server was great, but the food was really bland and just not that great. For the price, I would have expected everything to be at least decent. I’m not really sure how this places has so many Best of Omaha awards.
I went here for a prom dinner and the food was amazing and the service was so good i would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good place for a nice dinner
We were scheduled to attend an event this evening and booked a reservation the youth open at table at this restaurant. When we arrived they said they were CLOSED!! Apparently the system allowed us to make a reservation during their CLOSED hours!! Needless to say we were late for our event due to having to find another OPEN restaurant!!! Hooray for technology....
Maybe syncing the system with the restaurants open and closed hours would be logical!!
We had a great time for a birthday gathering. I think the prices have gone up, but food was amazing!
Our server was extremely slow and unfortunately not because he was busy. I was very surprised that the food was mediocre as I was expecting a delicious meal. Our salads were made of ice berg lettuce and were not pleasing to the eye. All of our salads were drenched in dressing which pooled in the bottom and was literally soupy. I ordered blackened salmon and steamed veggies which included eggplant. The salmon spices were not cooked long enough and some were hard pieces and the veggies were bland, the eggplant was hard as a rock. Consensus from the group was for the price, the food was not worth it nor enjoyable.
Always enjoy Charlie’s! The martini’s are great and the shrimp cargot is outstanding. Plenty of menu options for all tastes.
As usual the food and service was amazing. Will definitely be back and will recommend Charlie's on the Lake to everyone.
We arrived and got a table right away (we had a reservation on a Friday night, and they were not very busy). Service was somewhat slow for having the place only 2/3 full.
The food was very good, although our entrees were only luke warm.
We did get a complimentary cheese cake sampler for our anniversary.
Overall, I give it only a fair rating.
The food is really good and the portions are very filling. It has a lot more to offer now that it's Charlie's Grill and Steaks. There was a bit of everything on the menu - chicken, prime rib, steaks, and of course seafood. I would eat at Charlie's again.
They definitely do seafood better than they do steak. I got the rib eye and they served it with gravy?! And the rib eye was lackluster. Ick. Seafood meals others got were good.
The food was pretty good. Our server really lacked any organization or common sense. We had to repeatedly ask for common service tasks, like water refills, bread service, and carry home boxes. He also had zero knowledge of the wine list or cocktail menu.
Very good meal we 'll enjoyed what we had. Just wish they offered a plain baked potato wasn't in mood for twice baked .they tend to be a little dry other than that excellent.
Dinner with friends. I’ve never had a bad meal at Charlie’s on the lake. Cajun stuffed prime rib is a must try entree.
Nice restaurant. They were out of a couple of my beer choices
Staff was very friendly. Neat place. Great food! The prime rib and ribeye steak you can about cut them with a fork.
We sat for about 10-15 min waiting for the waiter to come by for the first time. He apologized stating that he did not realize it was part of his station. He apologized several times and was very polite. Food was good. I am sure we will come back again for a special occasion.
We were for a date night. The service was great but the food was not. My prime rib was grey in color and so smothered with mushrooms and cheese I did not know what was supposed to be the feature. My wife and I used to go to Charlie’s when we first met but will not be back.
Had my Mom's 84th birthday here. My dad said it was the best prime Rib he has ever had.
Excellent food. Decent prices. Good atmosphere. Pretty good service.
We intended to celebrate a belated Valentine's dinner, and it started well enough. We ordered the seafood feast to share and we were enjoying our martini and appetizer when our meal arrived BEFORE our soup/salad course. The wait staff seemed perplexed as to what to do about it; we finally suggested that they keep it warming while we ate the salad course. I wasn't sure how this would play out as you certainly don't want seafood sitting under a heat lamp. Also for a $60 meal for two, I would have expected two crab legs rather than one. We felt that we needed to eat our salad and soup with some urgency so as not to completely ruin the main course, so our evening of a leisurely and fun meal was lost. Once we were served our entree, we had to remind our server to bring us some bread, which we did not receive with our salad. Full disclosure: the house manager was very nice and accommodating to us upon hearing of our dinner follies. We will probably try Charlie's again - maybe for drinks and appetizers on the patio or for lunch, but it'll be awhile if we ever go back for a nice dinner.
We were a group of 10, separate tickets was no problem. Ordered drinks and variety of food
All plates came out hot, rib eye steaks were excellent, prime rib out of this world. Lobster was huge and yummy! Variety of fish was ordered, all was cooked to perfection!
The waitress , I wish I had remembered her name, was very attentive, taking the teasing and giving it right back. This was a great choice for a birthday celebration! One more thing, gratuity was NOT added for large group
Thank You Staff at Charlie’s on the Lake! We will be back for sure!
We've been here before and felt it has been better in the past. Renee was our server and she was fantastic. The seafood enchiladas were good but pretty much a plate of cheese. Missing prime rib oscar -- what we usually come for. The desserts are always good.
The ribeye fell apart in my mouth, amazing! Our server just ok, forgot things twice and slow to refill. Inside it was very nice. We'll be back
Food was excellent and good quality and quantity. Service was very good. Prices were very competitive considering the amount of food that was offered. Will definitely eat here again!!
Outdated. Crab legs over cooked. Veggies over cooked. Slow service.
