Bravas serves traditional Spanish dishes along with tapas-style dining and has been named in the Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by the San Francisco Chronicle. Sit out on the covered patio any time of the year and enjoy a chilled Tapa of Salmorejo soup or tuna belly salad. Join a group of friends indoors at Bravas while dining on a warm Tapa of bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese, warm bacalao on wood grilled flatbread or the Pocket Creak Duck Egg served sunnyside up with Chorizo cracklings and toast. Other menu items include Monterey Calamari served with salsa verde, blackened lamb porterhouse or the skirt steak with red onion marmalade and Valdeón Cheese. Bravas offers a large selection of local and Spanish wines, sangrias and Spain inspired cocktails that will not only quench your thirst but will complement your food perfectly and authentically.

    We were there to celebrate a birthday & graduation. We ordered 5 small plates to share which were very fresh & full of flavor. We had the paella & the pescatarian paella as our main courses. Both were very good. The service was good. There was a mixup on the pescatarian paella so that came out 10 minutes later than the other paella which was inconvenient but not the end of the world. We would definitely go back when we are in the area again.

    Patatas bravas and lamb burgers were outstanding! Beets were also delicious. Calamari is not deep fried, as at most places, so not what we expected, but still tasty. We will come back to try the sea scallops and many other tapas that sounded interesting.

    It is noisy and hard to hear conversations inside when it's busy. But the food is always excellent, with a wide variety of tapas and excellent drinks and wine list. Service is very good and attentive too.

    We had delicious food and GREAT service when we dined at Bravas Friday night. It was busy, but not crowded. We had just the right amount of attention from the waitstaff and great food and drink recommendations. In the end, we choose to have the roasted cauliflower as an appetizer and shared the crispy skin trout as our entrée. Both were AMAZING. Still dreaming about our meal...

    Wonderful tapas under the stars. I’ve been to Bravas Tapas for Mother’s Day brunch and several lunches with friends. Last was my first dinner on their wonderful back patio - the staff, service & cuisine never disappoint! The scallops, octopus, cauliflower and patatas were well timed and prepared to perfection.

    The croquettes are a must try. We probably over ordered because everything was so good. We went little heavy on the fried goodies but we will return and try to correct that!

    One of our favorite Healdsburg eateries. Sitting outside on a warm afternoon for lunch sipping Sangrias and noshing on delicious food, what more could one ask for? Hit some of our favorites, pan oliva, Duncan's mushrooms, and patatas bravas. Really enjoyed the new chicken thigh dish with olive tapenade, yum. I'd give them six stars if they brought back the duck sliders.

    Air conditioning was not working and it was about 102 degrees out that day. Worst part is the staff did not admit there was something wrong. We just left. Too bad because I heard the food was great.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Bravas and were pleasantly surprised by just how good everything was. There wasn't a single thing we didn't like, but standouts were the Ham & Truffle Bocadillo, the Crab-stuffed Piquillo peppers, the Eggplant w/ honey, and the Spanish Tortilla.

    We love the food so much we deliberately over-order! Four appetizers and paella for two… so lots of the paella came home for lunch. Yummy! Escarole salad is surprisingly good. Calamari was tender. Crab stuffed peppers were a knockout and the cauliflower dish was excellent.

    It was my 45th Birthday (again)!! Bravas was awesome!! We started with drinks…i had the Finkeldorf!!! Or whatever it was called!!! To die for! Perfectly refreshing, it was 90 degrees outside but very comfortable where we sat! Then I had the “gazpacho”. Wowzer, it was highly unusual and so fabulouso! My partner had the goat cheese with some freaky condiments!! He loved it. Then we shared the “Paella”!! OMG. It was incredible. Then…they surprised me with some soft serve Strauss vanilla ice cream with Meyer lemon oil and something else. I had an incredible Birthday week and I’m still going strong!! ETHAN our waiter was an absolute doll, not to mention gorgeous!!!

    The food was fun but seemed very over salted. I wish the gazpacho had been more traditional instead pureed to the texture of soft serve ice cream.

    Best tapas since Spain and Portugal. The selection was copious; Cole's (the server) suggestions were right on; the ambiance (we were on the patio) was wonderful. We had the mushrooms, roasted cauliflower, and crispy skinned chicken - all were wonderfully seasoned, tender, and delicious. We will definitely be back!

    First visit here and we were super pleased. Our group probably had a dozen different small plates (small sandwiches, octopus, pigs ears, clams, etc) which were all great and a paella for 2 that was outstanding. Our waiter did a great job considering the place was packed, all in all a 5 star evening. We will return

    Service was not so good, had to go looking for the server. Also, this place is know for its small plates and sad to say it also applies to that whiskey pour. Could not have been more than 1.5 ounces.

    We were visiting from out of town and, at the last minute, reached out to some friends that live nearby to join us for dinner. They were excited we had a reservation already at Bravas Bar de Tapas. Also, several other people on our wine stops that day said it was one of their favorites. I have to say they were right. enjoyed the extensive menu. Everything we had was fantastic. Also, being tapas, we got to try several different things at our table. The cocktails were also very good. Service was friendly and food delivery to our table was timed perfectly.
