    I usually love the food at Bravas, but this time everything was way over sauced and not as good as usual. The skirt steak had a weird taste too. And the r balls dessert was way too greasy. It was disappointing:(

    This was my 2nd visit of the restaurant. 1st time was great experience so that I brought my newly married husband for celebrating our anniversary. Overall, this time experience was very disappointing. It might be because we arrived after 2pm but we didn’t have any service (we didn’t even know who was our server) and I wanted to have a little celebration but no once asked us any dessert we want to ordered. I am not sure if I would like to try it again …

    First time dining here and underwhelmed. Food wasn’t very exciting and wine list was limited. Best thing we ordered was the Brussel sprouts. Overall would give it a fair 3 star rating.

    I love love love this restaurant. We take all our out-of-town guests to this restaurant, and everyone always leaves happy. This last visit I was there with my Mom and sister. Out of all the food we ate over the three days they were visiting, this was their favorite restaurant. Our go-to items we order are Jamon Iberico, Patatas Bravas, and Paella. The last time we were there, we ordered Monterey Calamari and were licking the salsa verde off the plate. It was so good.

    This was about our fourth or fifth time dining at Bravas. We had a delicious lunch with croquettes, cider-braised chorizo and shishito peppers, the bacalao and cigarillos, and Danny's mushrooms. My only suggestion is one that has occurred to me before -- provide slices of bread with meals (or at least some dishes) so every last bit of the delicious sauces (e.g. in the mushroom dish) can be soaked up and enjoyed. As always, Frankie (and others) took excellent care of us!

    We had amazing food: Brussels sprouts, chorizo, crumbled goat cheese and balsamic vinegar dish and sea scallops with romesco and leeks. Also the eggplant chips with honey and rosemary must be experienced and my husband dislikes regular eggplant.

    SO and I came for dinner on Valentine’s Day. We sat outside on the covered porch which had heaters so the temperature was very comfortable despite the rain. Server was attentive with great customer service. We did not enjoy the dessert we initially ordered so the server swapped it out with no issues.

    We love Bravas! We ate dinner outside last night. It was a bit chilly so they moved us to a different table and turned on the gas heater, which made it perfect. Everything we ordered was delicious! Highlights were the Crab Stuffed Piquillo Peppers, the Crispy Bacalao Cigarillos, and the Crispy Skin Chicken Thighs. Service was attentive and good. Bravas never disappoints!

    Four of us for a birthday lunch enjoyed a variety of tapas. The white anchovies and crab-stuffed peppers were outstanding. As were the eggplant chips--highly recommended. Manchego cheese and serrano ham bocadillos were lovely, and the bacon-wrapped dates left us wanting more. The only disappointment was the 'soft'-serve ice cream:too soft, more drinkable than spoonable. Our waiter was perfect--attentive but unobtrusive, and we had all the time we wanted to enjoy excellent food and a special occasion.

    Cocktails and most dishes were very good. Inside was really noisy- if it had been better weather, outside by the bar would have been preferred. Our outside bartender prior to dinner was spot on, personable and really good service. Inside servers seemed to be having a rough day.
