We frequently enjoy Bravo for a special occasion. The mushroom soup is a real treat, always excellent! Nice place for a family brunch too.

I dined here recently during a business trip to the area. The restaurant is quite nice especially in comparison to the other local choices. I ordered a salad with baked salmon and it was very well prepared. The staff appeared very friendly although perhaps over booked. This is not a place where you can get in and out quickly bit if you have time it is very nice. It is a bit pricy but you get what you pay for.

I was taken here by a company I was visiting in the area. The food was decent and everyone I was with was pleased with their meal as well. The price for the outing was a little pricey, however it seemed to be of better quality. So not really a downside. If you are looking for good food and don't mind to pay for it I would recommend trying Bravo out, you won't be disappointed.

Thank rob s

This was a bit of a disappointment. I like to try new restaurants while away on business and good soup and salad sounded good to me. The wait staff were very attentive- my water was filled every time I took 2 drinks. The food was not worth the price. The bread was served cold and soft- I was expecting done warm crusty Italian bread. I ordered tomato basil soup which was very plain and one step up from Campbell's. My $10 dinner salad- with no meat- was just lettuce, cranberries, and a little goat cheese. It was fine but not great. I would not eat here again.

Thank Gerdys

The Hagen brothers have created in Bravo an amazing dining experience. From their ever changing gourmet menu to their amazing pizza absolutely nothing on their menu ever disappoints. I have been dining at Bravo for 15 years and can honestly say every visit has been a delight. I highly recommend the small plates menu and my husband recommends the pizza and micro brew beer!
