    Excellent tapas…their small plates were easily shared between two and were delicious. Just like Spain! Our servers were lovely and we enjoyed sitting on the back patio on a hot day. Highly recommend the gazpacho, tomato toast, patatas brava, and dates wrapped with bacon. Everything was excellent as was the wine. Will definitely come back again when we are in town.

    Every visit to Bravas is a delight. We make sure to always enjoy a lunch or dinner with them when we're in wine country. The servers are friendly and helpful with suggestions of different tapas plates to try. The wine list is diverse and delightful with most wines available by the glass. The outdoor porch and patio are beautiful - with orange trees and lush vegetation as a backdrop.

    Braves Bar De Tapas is simply amazing! Great service, loved the fun atmosphere and we are still raving over the egg plant chips. Truffle honey is our new favorite. Defenitly a must stop if you are in Healdsburg.

    We (2 adults) had a nice dinner. They were out of the canned smoked trout which was disappointing. We had the marcona almonds, spanish and local cheese, baby kale salad, creamy chicken croquetas and the crispy skin chicken thighs. Everything was delicious.

    Our 4 dishes yesterday were excellent or good. We sat on patio where noise level is lower. Great wine selection by the glass. Loved escarole salad & Dungeness crab peppers; octopus cooked a bit too much. Server well-informed. lunch bill up there.

    We sat on the covered patio - clearly the nicest place to sit. Lovely view of the garden, without the glaring sun. The food was typical of tapas selections, but with a nice "Tapas Bravas" twist. Excellent tapas!

    Wanted to give 5 stars, but the service was poor. We ordered a couple of small plates (olives, etc - not even a small meal) and drinks, and no one came to check on us until 15+ minutes after both drinks and small plates were gone. Staff didn't seem concerned and never expressed any apology about our long waits. The restaurant was not full. The food was excellent, but after the same long wait/lack of acknowledgment happened again after we placed our next round of tapas orders, we decided to forego ordering more and left to go somewhere else for a little more food (we were both still very hungry). It's a shame. We love tapas (we live in Asheville, and regularly enjoy Curate) and had been very excited to go here. Excellent food, poor service, lack of awareness or concern that we sat for extended periods with no food or drink.

    The dishes are DELICIOUS! And unique.They have a cauliflower dish with bacon, blue cheese and more that is beyond excellent. A Eggplant chips that ended our meal — better than a dessert! Who knew! Scallops - perfectly cooked in a great sauce. Crispy chicken thighs with a green olive temperate that are to die for. I can’t say enough good things! WE go often and Weds was even better than usual!

    Disappointing - potatoes underdone, octopus fishy, artichoke to hard to eat (sent it back), ham and cheese sandwiches good, duck meatball sandwiches good, salad excellent. Couple of the special cocktails were underwhelming. It was a birthday and I noted to the server; he winked, but there was no acknowledgement. The best part is the ambience this time. Have been when it was much better for the cost.

    The only table available even 2 weeks out, was outside. Unfortunately, it was a very windy night and we were seated at a tippy table with wind blowing our menus off the table. That said, when we asked, we were move to a table in a protected corner and everything was great from then on. Service is very very good as are the tapas- we highly recommend their version of Creme Brulee- it was a super star, as was watching the man make paella outside - that was so entertaining! Recommended!!

    This is our second visit to Bravas and we loved it again! The food was excellent. Our server was able to provide detailed info on menu items so we could make decisions on what we'd like best. The drinks were great as well, especially the margarita. We'll definitely be back to enjoy dinner on the patio again!

    For a restaurant called Bravas, the one thing you would expect that would nailed down right is their patatas bravas dish. It wasn’t. Potato pieces should be bite sized (too large) and some of the pieces were overcooked to be inedible. The sauces also didn’t have any depth. Everything else was perfect including the service, but the one dish they needed to get right was actually below average, not even on par, for US Spanish restaurants.

    Food was fantastic. Our server was great, but he was way way too stretched. He didn’t have a lot of help handling his large load. We had a long stretch of time when we had food without beverages. I would hope that it was an isolated situation. We would certainly return.
