    Had reservations and was seated right away. I had to ask for utensils, napkins and for bread. Waiter would bring food and then run away and never checked on us. Food was only OK. Pizza was doughy, calamari was greasy and limp. Chicken parmesan was decent but not enough sauce accompanied the dish. I would have like to ask for more sauce, but did not see the waiter again until he brought the check

    The food and service was quick! Our server was kind and attentive. We had the chicken parm, a capture salad, and two desserts. The cheesecake was really lovely, I’m not a cheesecake gal and I LOVED it! The tiramisu was also really yum!

    We “dined” at Bravo on Christmas Evening (5:00 pm). 1) when we were seated & greeted by waitress, I thanked her for working on the holiday. We had a nice chat about her 1 year old. 2) my husband & I told her another guest would be joining us; however we ordered drinks & an appetizer 3) the appetizer (calamari-listed as a bravo customer fav) arrived before our drinks, was cold & rubbery. 4) waitress returns to tell us there is a time limit on the table, not sure hostess told us; meanwhile place is 1/3 full but assures us it will fill up in the next hour 6) our guest arrived & barely hits the seat & is asked if ready to order & again mentions the time limit but has yet to tell us what it is 8) guest tells her we’ll talk to the manager & get that squared away 9) waitress proceeds to tell manager in kitchen as I observe when kitchen doors are open 10) husband jokes with waitress about her having time to help us. She apologizes but laughs w/us 11) our order is served by someone else. We ask for more bread & our guest asked for the same bread I got w/my shrimp scampi (which later I am told is crostini) 12) after digging in, we see our waitress & ask about our bread orders. She says she didn’t know. Husband says we told the person who delivered our food; exasperated look follows 13) manager comes over to ask about bread. We tell him we ordered table bread & the bread I had. He says oh, ciabatta.” We say “yes” 14) he comes back w/something that is neither table bread or the scampi bread that comes with the shrimp; I am assuming this is ciabatta 15) we politely tell him we asked for the bread sitting on my plate & he condescendingly says, “oh, you wanted the crostini” & retrieves it 16) next our table bread is delivered by yet another person who tells us b/c our waitress is so busy, he will be helping us. 17) we pay check; give good tip despite issues 18) when lvg @ 6:50 pm a was couple turned away & doors promptly locked. More happened but space limit.

    Oh wow, what can I say? This place is definitely not the restaurant it was when it first opened. The service staff was spread thin but understandable given that it was Christmas Eve. The menu is narrower and the pricing is decent given restaurant price inflation. There is significant deferred maintenance in the place. The tables are shabby and the restrooms haven't been cleaned in forever. The dust on top of the urinals and the broken paper towel dispenser said a lot about the decline of what was once a nice restaurant. Makes you wonder about the kitchen. Sure enough, one guest in my party got sick from the lasagna. It's unlikely we would ever return.

    We went for thanksgiving, they were very organized and prompt with the reservation. My husband had the thanksgiving dinner, nice portion sizes were served, he liked his dinner. I had bravo pasta very good. The server was very friendly, I forgot her name, but she had lung blonde curly hair. We would definitely eat here again.

    Reservations for 6 were at 1:30pm for Thanksgiving Dinner. Food was average but the manager on duty created a bad experience for our family dinner by publicly criticizing the entire table with a verbal comment to all who could hear "we should be thankful he is working today". I have been in F&B 20 years. If this manager can not handle the early hour of a day like today perhaps he should be working away from your patrons?

    There was no mention online that the Thanksgiving Day menu would be very restricted. There were no vegan entrees available. My Thanksgiving Feast was a garden salad and a hard roll. Bon Appetit!

    We dine at Bravo often and always enjoy it. This was a disappointing experience. Our salads were great, but the meatball appetizer and flatbread were served medium warm at best. Apparently our food sat in the kitchen waiting to be brought to our table because the service was extremely slow. We understand restaurants are short staffed, but please at least serve hot foot. We asked that the flatbread be reheated and it came back very rubbery.

    Why do you use Open Table ???? They don’t honor the reservations if they are “busy “ , how do you know ??? That’s why we use Open Table , or used to ?? Bravo blamed Open Table usage on corporate, could careless about your experience !! Very disappointing that you think you are making a legitimate reservation 20 minutes ahead of time and then you drive there and are told “Sorry we are busy , so your 6:30reservation means nothing, we can seat you at 8pm !!!???
