This was not a good experience. We sat on the patio on a Saturday night. The server was rude in the way he greeted us. We ordered a few dishes and they were not tasty at all. Just spicy and pretty bad. The pork cheek sliders were recomended to us and they were also awful. We dine out often and the flavors just were not there. Save yourself and go to Bisto Ralph's. Or Chalk Board That's what we will do next trip.

Dinner for four. Saturday night during harvest. Wine tourists abound. One of the other highly rated restaurants in town was closed for a wedding. (Fewer seats available in town). Bravas was coming apart at the seams (with people), but they maintained their usual very good quality of food and superb service. Our guests had never enjoyed Bravas in the past and they were highly complimentary. We did the "one of each" from the menu (only slightly exaggerated) and at least one of us loved everything. I still can't get my head around fried pigs' ears, but sure enough, Mikey liked it!
Just go--you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I had lunch here last week and thoroughly enjoyed Bravas. The restaurant is quite pretty, has wonderful food and drink and is located in one of the trendiest restaurant and wine cities in the country. Plus the staff is lovely. What's not to love!

Friends took us to Bravas Bar De Tapas for lunch midweek. We ate out doors on the patio.We had good service and provided an unusual selection of food options not typically found in restaurants in the USA. They offered selections from Chilled Tapas, Bocadillos (little sandwiches), Warm Tapas, Paella and other such options. Most all the foods were designed to be shared. Waiter can provide recommendations on favorites and quantity to share. We were very pleased with our selections. Good wine selection of local wines and wines from Spain. Great experience that we would recommend.

Food is very tasty, especially scallops! I prefer my pig ears much crispier but still very delicious. In a sunny day, dining in their garden is so relaxing.
