I had the chicken with sundried tomato and goat cheese. It was excellent! I will say i don't like green beans and loved theirs. We also had their spinich and artichoke dip and i would suggest ordering it. We loved it. Our waiter wasn't the friendliest but he was fantastic at what he does. They forgot the roasted bell peppers... More

Found Bravo! On a ten best restaurants site and decided to try it out as it is very convenient to the highway. We were very glad we did as it did not disappoint in any way. To start with the service was excellent and prompt. They start off with their own homemade bread with both butter and olive oil which... More

From the moment we walked in we knew it was going to be a great meal. At 5:30 in the evening on a week night the place was packed! The chicken pesto pizza and the eggplant appetizer were delicious! Sarah was a great waitress and helped make it a great dining experiance.

It was a girls night out and we all had different dinners! Everything was very very good! Our wait staff was fantastic, as well. I like that it is a small restaurant ...very cozy for anniversaries or with family.

This has been a mainstay of Kalamazoo for special occasions. The mushroom soup is excellent. Love the Chicken-Apple salad. The pasta dishes are great. Ambiance is beautiful and relatively quiet place for being able to hear one another talk.

Bravo is one of our favorite restaurants. Great food, prepared fresh with local in season ingredients as well as long time regulars on the menu to offer an outstanding selection regardless of preferences. The food is well prepared and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is cozy, welcoming and the linens, silver, chargers and stemware are classy but not pretentious. The wine... More

We had eaten here before over a year ago. Apparently, there is new management and for sure a new chef. Wow! The food was fantastic. There were 3 of us with one being 16 years old. He is new to American food, so we were trying to steer him to mouth treats. We went on a Sunday evening. Caesar salad... More

Definitely a great time to enjoy Bravo. Thursday nights thru October 27th they have 1/2 off pasta, pizza & pints of beer. I had the roasted sweet red pepper sauce penne. It was very good. No one was disappointed!
