My husband and I went to Bravo's for lunch- around 12:30-12:45. It was getting towards the end of the lunch crowd. We were seated right away, but there must have been a mix up with the servers because we waited several minutes and no one came to take our drink order or just say "Hey, I'm your server, I'll be...

We had a great meal there yesterday. The service was good and the food outstanding. The lobster bisque was outstanding. It was made the wart I thought it taste and one of the best I have ever had.

Yup Greg, the server, was nice, we came in 30 mins before closing. Food was ok, I had rigatoni. I heard the salmon was good and Cesar salad was great. I use to love the pork chops but they weren't good the last few times so I choose to forego them. I forgot, the cocktails there are overpriced for what... More

My friend and I always meet for lunch here. We sit at the bar and even if it's months since we have been there, the bartenders knows and remembers us. He makes us the best drinks and the service is great. We are served warm bread with dipping oil. I always get the same thing, Ceaser Salad and lobster bisque... More

Normally we love Bravo. I ordered the Wedding soup which I normally think is the best. Today mine was cold with all the pasta clumped together. Yes, I should have sent it back. My Antipasto salad was lacking in everything but lettuce. Hubby got lasagna which he said was cold and average in taste. I thought it was a large... More
