The owner and his wife are so sweet and very personal. They make it a point to know their customers and the wife, if not making the food herself, is somehow directly involved in making sure the food is within her standards. Great family-owned restaurant. I go here every time I crave for Mediterranean food.

Bravo Avo looks like a fast food place from the outside but that all changes when you walk in the front door. All the food is prepared fresh on premises and you can tell a lot of love and pride go into it. I had the lamb combo which was absolutely delicious! The bread was good and was fresh as... More

hadn't been to Bravo Avo for probably 5 years or so and recently started working in the area again so I gave it a try for lunch. Just like I remember, tasty meat great flavors and seasoning and the Avo sauce is awesome

This place looks like it serves fast food but you are in for a pleasant surprise. The food is fresh, including the pita, and the babaganoush is fabulous. Go and enjoy! There is seating inside and the décor is pretty.

Stopped by Bravo Avo for some Greek food. The owner came to the table and chatted us up for a bit. Service was good. The food was delicious although the portions are on the smaller side. I'd go back, but I'd make sure to order an appetizer or dessert.

A group of co-workers and I went there for lunch. The food quality is really good, fresh ingredients, delicious food options but really pricey small portion. One would end up paying almost 10-12 bucks for a lunch. Owners are nice but a little bit rude (he asked us to leave once we finish our meal! even though we were still... More

Four of us, aged 8 to 66 had dinner here recently and then a few weeks later had take out, and in both cases the food was great. Among us we had a shrimp dish, tilapia, a kabob serving and a sampler, and they were all good. The layout is simple but comfortable, and the service was very friendly and... More

Bravo-Avo is smallish but immaculate and a consistently good family run venue. It is actually a hidden gem. The food is very well prepared and often creative. Mediterranean is the strongest influence. They have several wine choices and still have a self-serve glass door refrigerator with canned soft drinks. That feels eclectic to me. This visit we tried the daily... More
