Food was very good although not a great value - a bit pricy. Service was also very good, but noisy children dampened the whole experience. Also, no decaf coffee or tea? Ever? Maybe I'll go back for lunch.
The food at Bravo is wonderful and you get a lot for the money you pay. We did, however pick a strange night to eat there. There were about 30 people having a holiday party with several yelling at one another in Russian, drinking heavily, dancing wildly to the music, and going in and out to smoke. Although it was so noisy that we could not talk, it was fun watching everyone. Also the service was very slow. The entertainment was very good with the owners singing Russian songs. The restaurant owner was very nice and she put forth an extra effort to came over to our table to make sure we were OK. My friend left her hat at the restaurant, as well as her boxed leftovers. The next day the owner called to say that she had the hat and that they had also put her leftovers in the refrigerator. I plan to go to the restaurant often, but I will make sure that they are not having a private party when I go.
Disappointing. The only saving grace was the use of a groupon to save $15.00; a byob policy and the hunmms and pita (5 stars) and the Greek salad (4 stars), the wait staff when we were the only couple in the restaurant was wonderful, but apparently by himself as tables filled he was overmatched; a request for more onions went unheeded till i was 3/4 thru; the liver and onions was served with no gravy and cold onions and the fried chicken crushed to within an inch of its death (not as tall as a pancake)
As good a meal as we've had in quite some time... and, given its rather wide-ranging menu, definitely worth a return visit soon.
Service was slow. We waited about an hour to get served even though there were only two other tables occupied.
Very good dinner. I liked the croquettes and the chicken with cherry sauce. I'll be back.
Everything we ordered was very good. Authentic greek salad was very fresh. The whole Bronzino was so yummy. You just have to be willing to “fool” with the bones etc...lamb chops were tasty! BYOB!
The food was delicious. Prices very reasonable.
Loved the food. Problem with the rib eye steak. I asked for med rare. Sent back twice and settled on vreat
What a charming neighborhood gem. We were greeted warmly... our server Tim was perfect - attentive but not overbearing. And the food was different but delicious. The strawberry and cheese salad was light and refreshing. The puff pastries filled with minced lamb and spices - don’t miss these yummy bites!! For dinner I shared the Mitittea (?) - awesome flavor. A truly delightful experience. You can bring your own wine:) we look forward to returning very soon!
Halibut was awful!!!
Excellent lamb chops, blini with red salmon caviar. Delcious strudel. Lively music and good singing at 8pm. Nice, attentive waiters. Easy parking. A very nice experience. Great value. Will return and bring friends. BYOB.
It's a modest location, but the service was great. Thanks Dennis for your attentiveness. The menu isn't your run of the mill choices. It's Eastern European. We had some delicious apps and the main meal was also tasty. We will definitely go back to try some of the other different choices.
Great food, amazing service, nice ambiance - I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends
First visit tonight. Food and service were excellent. Starters were Olivier salad, herring & potatoes, poached egg & gravlax and green salad (spinach & avocado). Main courses- Mititei, lamb chops, pan fried chicken, chicken & cherry sauce. EVERYTHING was delicious. Our server Tim very friendly and attentive. Looking forward to returning.
This was our 2nd visit. The food was great as usual.
Impeccable service and delicious food. I can't wait to return.
We have dined at Bravo 3 times in the last 30 days and enjoyed each visit. We brought our own wine and no corkage fee! The lamb chops are outstanding, and the steak was just how I like it. The food quantity was such that we had doggie bags.
Neighborhood gem! This place just opened. The food is great and very reasonably priced. If you like authentic Russian food, then this is your spot. They have live music on Thursday nights too. We got the borscht soup (really good and a hefty serving!), the pickled vegetables, and the hummus to start. The hummus was exceptional and homemade! For our main course we got the Chicken Tabaka with buckwheat and pan fried potatoes as our sides. I would recommend getting a side of roasted vegetables to counter the butter in those sides :) For dessert, we got the apple strudel-- homemade and delicious-- with a pot of freshly steamed Earl Grey tea.
Server was very friendly and helpful too!
Bravo is fabulous and surprising. The menu is full of Eastern European goodies. My husband and I enjoyed Russian lemonade. The mushroom soup tasted wonderful. I enjoyed the cherry chicken as my entrée. Dennis, our server, answered all our questions about the menu. He made us feel welcome. Bravo has a cabaret vibe; there is a painted "stage" showcasing live performances. Bravo is a Pikesville neighborhood gem. Applause, applause.
My brother and I took our parents to a Mother's Day lunch. We ordered veal liver and lamb shank. Veal liver was almost prefect; two or three chewy bites. Would I order it again? Yes. Lamb shank was absolutely prefect; moist, with a mild aroma and taste. Would I order it again? Yes. I will be visiting Bravo again.
Love this place. It’s nice and cozy. Food is delicious, everything came on time. Personnel were very polite and knowledgeable. Will love to come back here again!
Our entrees came with lots of delicious grilled vegetables, but the server had told us that nothing came with the entrees, so we ordered sides. As a result, we ended up with a LOT of food, but it was all delicious and we took a lot home. They had apparently just opened, so this was one of the bugs. Also, they were not able to accept credit cards at that time.
