Intimate inside dining or a beautiful patio. Service was great, thank you Shannon. Our group tried a variety of tapas and enjoyed them all. Favorites were the pork cheek and duck meatballs. They really do a nice job with the sauces. Lots of unique flavors. Will definitely go back

There were four of us that went to dinner and we all enjoyed it. We sat outside which was delightful, would recommend doing so if available. The service was very good and our waiter was attentive, informative and knowledgeable. We had several small plate items and shared. The best in our collective opinion was the octopus, much to my surprise.... More

We visited Bravas at the suggestion of a waiter and were not disappointed, we were discussing Spanish gin and tonics and he recommended Bravas as a place where they made great Gin and tonics and they did. We enjoyed the back patio a great deal. it was a great place to people watch and the weather was perfect, we would... More

We have visited Bravas twice now. We love the outdoor seating and bar area. This is a tapas style restaurant. Great for sharing. My favorite is the watermelon salad. This is with small tomatoes, shaved cheese, and vinaigrette. It is refreshing, especially with the other rich foods offered on the menu. We also enjoyed the charcuterie/cheese plate, scallops, and calamari.... More

At first glance Bravas’ extensive tapas menu may seem daunting, but as our server remarked, a diner could almost choose at random and make good selections. We enjoyed the sauteed calamari with salsa verde and lemon, blackened lamb with green olive tapenade, marinated grilled vegetables, chicken and gruyere croquettes, and tortilla espanola. Service was casual but attentive. We lunched outdoors... More

Great tapas restaurant. Unique offerings that all tasted great. The best part was the service. You can tell they take pride in providing top shelf service!

What a great find! I am so glad that we received this recommendation at an earlier wine tasting. The menu is extensive and it was so hard to pick only a few items. We finally decided on a Tortilla Española, Cheese Plate, Pan con Tomate, Patatas Bravas and Organic Frozen Yogurt with Toppings. I can't say enough about the perfect... More

The tapas at Bravas rivaled many that I have eaten in mainland Spain. Loved the scallops, calamari, pan de tomate and grilled corn! The atmosphere is so fun, with waiters bouncing around with new tapas every few minutes and a lovely outdoor patio. A must-visit in Healdsburg.

Finally made it in after all other restaurants hit in Healdsburg. This is one of the best. All 4 tapas style items were perfect. Beets, peaches, Calamari, and scallops all perfect and great backyard type atmosphere in back. A must visit!!!

We're almost reluctant to praise this place since we'd like to keep it to ourselves. Still, it's not that easy to find great food in Healdsburg if you want excellence in every way (food, atmosphere, service, comfort), but not pretension. The tapas do get expensive, but they're prepared with innovation that isn't overly proud of itself. Four of us ate... More
