    Cooks walked out during dinner service, waitress had to get manager who then went back into kitchen. All very visible to guests. Long delays with receiving food because of all that. No apology. Also noticed increased prices especially in comparison to size of order. Ladies room had soap dispenser on counter and one stall out of order that continually flushed. Whole place kind of a mess.

    Calamari was inedible. Couldn’t even chew it; it was so tough. We told our server and it was removed from our bill. We waited 45 minutes after ordering before our server came over and said our food ticket was lost and our order was just now being made. The restaurant comped the food without us having to ask which was nice. Once we received our meals, they were excellent.

    Loved our dinner at Bravo's on a busy Friday evening! Ended up eating in the bar area of the restaurant (due to limited standard seating/server shortage/extended wait time), but glad that we did. Our server, David, was exceptional in terms of attentiveness and friendliness, and the food was delicious no matter where we sat in the restaurant. Great choice of menu items, all at very reasonable prices. Thanks for a great evening out - we will return soon!

    We went here to celebrate three birthdays last night. We had a reservation yet when we got there, they had to make up a table which was right by the front door and outdoor eating glass area. It was freezing! Chairs by the windows are freezing cold and every time the front door opened freezing cold air blew right on us. We got bread and water almost immediately but that was it. Another 30 minutes before the waitress came to take our order. She brought bread 4 times and never said anything about how long it was taking for the food to come out. Finally after listening to some customers that surrounded us waiting for their table played loud banging music for 15 minutes I asked her when our food was going to be ready because that table was freezing cold and we were ready to leave. She told us soon and brought more bread 🤦🏼. Finally 19-15 minutes later it arrived. Never got salads and my husband's meal was wrong. She only brought one refill the entire time but kept saying let me go get those Pepsi's. We were there for 2.5-3 hours. It took her 10-15 minutes to do everything, bring boxes, bring checks, pay check. Then she comes out and says I heard it's someone's birthday and brought one Ice cream out. So which one was supposed to eat it. Lol. As we were leaving my son's girlfriend says I wonder where those Pepsi's ran off to. It was a terrible night and we won't be back again for a very long time.

    We both ordered Chicken Marsala with some additional marsala sauce - and it was absolutely delicious! The chicken was tender and moist - and there were fresh - not canned - mushrooms. Our server was very attentive and our food was delivered very promptly. Our visit could not have been more enjoyable!

    The food and drinks were good. I wish our server had refilled our drinks at least once. Once we we received our food, she didn’t check on us again until it was time for the check. My date and I wanted to order more cocktails and couldn’t.

    The restaurant is nice, the service was amazing!!!! The food was just ok. I haven’t been in a while and I remember the dishes being more flavorful and better tasting. The salad was so good, but the pasta dishes everyone ordered were just ok. The bread service at the beginning was the best and the drinks were our favorite part!

    We made this reservation and the restaurant refused to honor it! The restaurant manager accused us of “gaming” the system because we had previously entered without a reservation. We were told they were reservation only that evening. We left and went back to the car and searched open table for nearby reservations. This restaurant came up so we made the earliest reservation. When we returned they refused to honor the reservation. Needless to say we are very disappointed and frankly offended by the accusation that we did anything wrong. We simply made a reservation that was open to anyone!

    Ate at Bar. Bartender was limited by staff support. Manager came over to help but seemed pretty useless and didn’t want to get his hands dirty to dig right in and support back up. He Did a few cashier items and collected Tim’s from bar. Dishes piled up all over the bar, long waits for folks to get follow up service and drinks. He had no interface with customers. About 80% capacity. Hopefully it can be improved. My wife and I are regulars and we hope our experience was an outlier with the newness of staff. Appears to be a lack of training and oversight by management. Wasn’t like this when Dylan worked there under previous management. Poor service will eventually close the doors.

    It's been awhile since I've been to Bravo, which I've always loved. We went in the middle of the afternoon and were one of maybe 4 or 5 tables full in the whole place. Our server obviously thought this was her break time between lunch and dinner rush and took the majority of our time there to sit at a table by the bar with other servers, play on her phone, and ignore us. She was nice when she was at the table, but we waited a very long time to order, didn't get checked on with our food until we were almost finished (we were hoping for more of a couple of things), and then to pay. The food was ok, but not as good as it used to be. To top our experience off, another server nearby was wearing a floor length bathrobe most of the time we were there. I've never experienced anything quite like this visit, which was very disappointing. I heard after the fact that the restaurant has really gone downhill and I can sadly agree.

    We made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner due to several of us had to work the holiday. We were not aware it was a very limited menu due to holiday or we would have went elsewhere. Very few options and almost none for our gluten free guest. Our server clearly did not want to be there and pretty much ignored us . While I appreciate them being open to those of us who also work holidays, we will not be back.
