    Never any complaints at Bravos. The service was excellent, the hot bread, the house salad, both mine and my husbands meals and the caramel mascarpone cheesecake were all excellent.

    Usually the bread is one of my favorites but it was not even warm. Part of it was even cold like it came out of the refrigerator. I had a big chicken chopped salad which was huge, but mostly just lettuce with cold sliced chicken & candied pecans. My husband had margarita flatbread & he said it was okay. We also had a caprese salad but I got the end of the tomato I guess. The hard part was even hard to cut around. So, the food could definitely be improved. Service was good & attentive.

    My husband and I went for dinner. Service was excellent and the atmosphere is great- causal chic. It’s one of my favorite places to eat. However this time, my husband got the NY Strip and unfortunately it was overcooked-twice. But the manager made it right and was very apologetic. I highly recommend eating here, but maybe stick to the Italian dishes.

    The service was prompt and friendly, and the food was outstanding. Everyone in our group of four thought their dinners were very good. I was a little surprised how much wine by the glass prices increased - up to $24 for a nine ounce pour. Seems like it was much less than that not long ago.

    We had Sunday night dinner at Bravo's and it was so good. My husband had the wedding soup which he loves, then helped me with the spinach-artichoke dip which is amazing. Then we each had the lasagna, but were so full we could only eat half each. So we'll have another Bravo meal of leftovers soon. Our waiter Greg was very attentive - we'll definitely ask for him next time we go.

    Two friends and I had 5:30 Saturday reservations and it was perfect for us avoiding the crowd. We had excellent service from Amaya and were well-pleased with the attention we received. One friend ordered the bisque and meatballs with ricotta for her meal. The other companion ordered the chicken fettucine that was much to her liking. Portions were generous and we each enjoyed our meals and were happy with our choices. My pasta with the chicken scallopini was just warm, but I did not want to make my companions wait while I sent the pasta back because their meals were piping hot. I also did not mention it to Amaya. We experienced a pleasant dining experience and will definitely return. The drinks from the bar were a bit slow in coming.

    Worst experience (food was ok) Lazy servers. Lazier managers. Food sitting in window dying Was 15 minutes before we were greeted and there were only 5 small tables and one larger party in restaurant with 4 servers, 3 managers and a hostess. Mess. Used to be one of our weekly spots but post Covid it seems like there’s no hope. Will not be returning

    This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. However, the food quality has decreased. What’s disheartening is what they served was intended. The poor quality on the ingredients, lack of seasoning, change is preparation all have gone downhill. The meat lasagna could easily be mistaken as Vegetarian. The service was poor. I can generally excuse service but not the meal. Their cost savings efforts are apparent. Too bad,

    The exhaust system must have been bad, the smoke from cooking was overwhelming. They had taken a few great items off the menu, was disappointed. Just not quality standards as it use to be for the money. Our waiter was very nice and got our food in a timely manner.

    I went to Bravo two weeks before this, and everything was amazing. However, this night was horrid! We waited 20 min before any service after my husband had to ask who was serving us. The manager gave us a free appetizer, which was kind. The staff had good attitudes, they were just overwhelmed and discombobulated. No one knew what tables were theirs, table beside us waited on drinks forever, and were upset. Our food came out less than mediocre, chicken was tough, my son didn’t get fruit with his kids meal… they were 100% out of bread. Then the waitress charged us $300 from the table beside us. They reversed it, and didn’t charge us our meal because of the inconvenience. The manager was very kind and accommodating, but this store needs some serious help and more food!

    The restaurant was overbooked with large parties - a 60 top & a 25 top. Had to wait at the host stand for 15 minutes before being greeted. Styrofoam to-go cups were used for our drinks. The server was apologetic but was not able to give our table enough attention or proper service. Poor planing with reservations and smaller groups, like our party of 5, suffered big time. There was (minimal) compensation on our check, but only because they made the incorrect entree for my son.
