We went here based upon tripadvisor ratings but were disappointed in both the food and service. There's a HUGE difference between #3 Baci and #5 Bravas. Bravas is a tapas restaurant, but the food came so fast that it is clearly not made to order---and it all came at once---anything but a leisurely meal. We were done in 10 minutes.... More

This is a fun place for Tapas. The front room has a fireplace for cold weather and there is a large patio in the back. Overall quality and service was really good. Lots of good choices -- II wanted to try everything. Especially good was the grilled squid and the chorizo and peppers.

For tapas fans, Bravas offers a wide variety of well-crafted and well-prepared dishes, delivered quickly despite Bravas' large number of tables. Also, a very nice, wide-ranging and fairly priced choice of sherries and wines. Service was quick, attentive and not cloying, prices for food and alcohols are moderate. Only criticisms would be lack of complexity to the paella and narrow... More

We had plans for dinner here, but ended up eating Tapas at the bar! It was sixth game of the World Series and we needed a TV. The bar was great, bartender really nice and interactive. Tapas were great - spent three hours there and loved every minute (of course, our team won) - that helped. We actually went back... More

The service & food were wonderful. This was a different take on tapas than what we are accustomed to in Chicago, however everything was good. The trout special with pickled vegetables, the grilled octopus & the small sandwiches were delicious. Great flavors & presentation. My only complaint is the wine glasses. I believe any restaurant in wine country should have... More

Good food, good atmosphere but one of the worst wine glasses I have ever seen! Am critical when it comes to how they serve me wine and cheap horrible wine glasses repels me! They do have amazing food - tapas style that you can enjoy while there - try everything on the menu! They are all good!

Went to Bravas after our wine walk and before dinner and just loved the light "appetizers" we had. The food was exceptional and fresh. We tried a variety of tapas and loved every one! Great wait staff and a beautiful patio for a late afternoon meal or pre-meal.

Lovely food. Surprisingly good spinach dish with pinenuts and raisins! A good local selection of wines. Fab cocktails! We paid about $200 for 7 tapas size dishes, 2 cocktails, 2 half bottles of wine and one dessert.

Bravas introduces Sonoma County's first "Ham and Cheese Bar," serving Spanish and local cheeses, Tortilla Espanola, and Iberico ham, sliced paper thin to order by a "Hamboner." Bravas offers a selection of local and Spanish wines, sangria and Spain-inspired cocktails. Dine indoors or out.

Happy Hour: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 5 pm
