Tipp City
About the restaurant
This restaurant housed in a former bank building in the heart of downtown Tipp City offers quality dining in a small-town setting. The decor is warm and welcoming and is a delight for the senses. The fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere while the full bar allows patrons a relaxing stop while awaiting a fabulous meal. The inviting atmosphere encourages relaxed conversation. You may be surprised to find that a restaurant in such a small town has some rather sophisticated choices on the menu alongside your more normal fare, with entrees such as ostrich being offered. If you are looking for a decadent dessert, look no further than the butter-drenched English Tea Cake! An easy drive from all points in the Dayton area, words cannot do it justice. A visit is a must and will be the first of many.

About the restaurant
Fresh + Unexpected Dining
Serving up an eclectic mix of globally inspired cocktails, wine and chef-driven cuisine, one would never guess that the key ingredients to Silas's success are sourced from a farm just down the road.

A bright sunlit space by day and a cozy candlelit venue by night, our main dining room makes an impact with contemporary decor and comfortable seating that’s swanky and sophisticated yet approachable to all.

This place is outstanding. Farm to table done right! Our server was George and he did an excellent job but he was also surrounded by a whole team that made the experience incredible. It’s hard to find good food when traveling. But good food and creative food is a plus. Highly recommend.

I went there, hoping to find the previous managers, they were gone. I initially was a bit disappointed. But the new staff staff was just as good if not better. The only problem is the server did not know how to open a fine bottle of wine.

The food was excellent and service good, no complaints, but not top shelf. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we felt it was good value. Bravo’s looks very, very tired. Needs a really thorough cleaning of public areas.
