“Tapas and Gourmet Beer”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Brava is a small place, about six tables, in the small Berkshire town of Lenox. The food is good and original. It serves 'tapas' style which, if you've never been to Spain, means small, appetizer sized portions. It would take about two portions to equal a medium meal, and three of four if you are a big eater. They range from about $6 to $12 dollars, so expect to spend about $25 to $30 each for a reasonably full stomach. They have a wonderful selection of beer, (a hundred choices?) and, just like in Spain, you can order by the half glass to increase your sample size.

“Great Beer and Fun Times”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We arrived into Lenox around 9 pm and decided to have a walk around to check out the local restaurant scene. We had done some research before hand and had read some reviews on Brava. Overall it is what it claims to be. An intimate pub style restaurant with a great atmosphere, friendly staff, and fantastic selection of beer. All of our tapas were exceptional (save one, the spicy pork tacos, which just didn't hit the mark for our us) especially the calamari. We both agreed it may just be the best calamari we have ever had!

If you want choices for drinks this is the place to go! I traditionally love German and Belgium style beers and came away with a new found favorite....Saison!!! I will be heading back again tonight for Saison and calamari!!!

“Great place, great service!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Were always looking for a place in the area thats open late. This cozy establishment serves food until midnight, drinks until 1am. The food is decent but we come back because of the cared for beer list and attentive service. Super friendly and observant staff. We've only been a handful of times but we are welcomed back like we are daily regulars. Knowledgable staff and dedication to their late hours. Will continue coming back.

“Excellent little place”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Food was superb. Staff was very nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend. But go earlier, as they tend to get very busy and it's a pretty small establishment.

“our go- to place”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

We live in the next town over, and come here often. The atmosphere is cozy, intimate & romantic. They will give you little tastes of wines you are interested in so you can really get what you want. Good sized wine list. You can also do wine flights, and they change the selections frequently. The menu is eclectic tapas. Everything we've had is delicious. They make a not to be missed version of the Alsace onion tart - a pizza with caramelized onion, bacon & creme fraiche that is ridiculous. Attentive service (by a very small staff), really good food & wine. Love it!
