I made the reservations and my wife had a Groupon that she had paid for. When we got to the place the doors were locked and there was a sign on the door that they were no longer in business. That sucks.
Bravo is a neighborhood restaurant in a nice plaza in Ft. Lauderdale that has served consistent food in a nice setting for many years. It is a spacious restaurant where you always feel comfortable. This upscale yet approachable Italian restaurant has a vast array of dining options which I like, but they still offer classic Italian favorites that always include soup, salad and bread. You will enjoy the taste as well as the portions at Bravo.
We came from out of town, staying at Renaissance, meeting an old friend living in FL. Very convenient, walking distance from hotel, easy to find and park for the local. Food was OK Italian. Bonus points to the wait staff who let us sit and talk long after dinner was over - thanks for that opportunity. Not at all crowded on a Friday night in late May -- guess the snowbirds have gone home.
Always consistent, neighborhood gem
Lunch for four adults . Veg options were acceptable for our one non-carnivore. House salad was good with creamy Italian dressing. Chicken parmigiana was excellent. Service was friendly and prompt. We were not rushed in any way. Total price including 22% tip (which I added) was about $78.00. We did not have alcohol at lunch. Thanks.
Lovely service and food looks good. I brought my service dog we sit outside. They are dog friendly. Thank you
The food was delicious and the service exceptional. Our thanks to Tim for making our visit a memorable one.
Great food and happy atmosphere. This is consistently a good place for Happy Hour as well as dinner. I bring all my friends here for a comfortable, relaxed and always enjoyable dinner.
Bravo was recommended by my hotel. Amazing Italian food and great service. So good I went back twice during my stay! Highly recommended!
Drive right by the chain restaurant. Bravo is a Great locally owned and operated Itialian Restaurant. Absolutely stellar service (Anthony was our waiter) and amazing food. Probably the best Lasagna in South Florida. Very nice wine selection. Everything about this place is spot on!!
Been there many times. We sat outside and the waiter must have been very busy because the attention was not up to usual.
But those Garlic Rolls!!!
Although our server had two tables with large parties at the same time, she arranged to get our order in at strategic times so we would not need to wait for the kitchen to process big orders and have the timing of our meal erratic or delayed. Food was great, service was attentive and prompt despite the large groups, and we were pleased with the total experience.
Food and service was good
We come to this restaurant every year when visiting Fort Lauderdale and it is absolutely the best. The food is delicious and service is great. Reasonably priced as well
Just OK, would not rush back. The food is mediocre and the good runner was rude
Awesome food and service. Bravo never disappoints.
Food was very good
Wine choices were very good
Music was way too loud - I could hardly hear my out-of-town friend whom I met there.
Waiter was ok - not great at describing dinners, nor did he check back on us very often.
Last time I visited it was not so loud and better service.
We always enjoy Bravos Have been going there on and off for years.
A very pleasant evening while staying at a nearby hotel
Always a good experience!
Lasagna was hard. Service spotty.
Waitress was great and the food was plentiful and great
The first time I dined here it was wonderful. The second time was disappointing. The waiter was bizarre. He told us he toasted our garlic rolls. He ruined them. He put them on the table before we got our salads so they were close to cold once we ate them. I’ll come back but I’ll definitely be more observant about who’s station I am sitting.
The food was average and prices high. Good service and atmosphere.
If you plan to dine outside, and it gets busy, the service becomes very slow. Three times later this has happened to us. We didn’t get our wine with dinner. Pasta was delivered and by the time we finished, we finally got the cheese we asked for. They need more than one server outside. The server doesn’t seem able to serve everyone drinks and food in a timely manner. Spoke to the manager again about this. Maybe one time they will listen. Afraid to go back now.
Having moved away from Fort Lauderdale, it is a must for us to go back to Bravo when we return to visit south Florida.
Well run operation. Food came hot. Professional staff.
Our server, Justin, was excellent. The staff/ mgmt at Bravo always makes us feel welcome and the food is consistently good.
Very good value, excellent service and the meal was delicious!
Very good dressing! For the garden salad! The balsamic is delicious
Chicken parm with the garlic parm sauce was great!
Ice cream homemade taste
Been going there for 15 years, food and service has always been excellent.
The Garlic Rolls are out of this world!
We were unhappy that the pasta fazool had too much pasta and one bowl was not hot. The drink ordered was too strong. The main meals were very good as were the rolls. Service was okay but not great.
We tried Bravo for the first time. We dined from their 'happy hour' menu. It was great. We had sausage and pepper sliders for an appetizer and lasagna for the entrees. Our dinners came with garlic rolls and salad. Everything was delicious. Our server Tim was excellent. We are looking forward to going back to try some other menu items. All and all a terrific meal.
We have been going to Bravo for 20 plus years. It is a good place to take guests when visiting us, the menu has so many choices, it is always good. We love the salad and the rolls are so yummy!!!I asked for a "quiet" table or booth, and it was mentioned when we arrived. We will return!!!
Fantastic service, food, value and atmosphere! Always a treat Year after year. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Our favorite restaurant when we come to town. Huge menu and lots of great choices. Tim our server was very attentive and suggested menu items.
We ate at Bravo on New Year's eve and it was fantastic. Great menu options and the food was prepared perfectly. We had appetizers, dinner, and dessert. All four of us had a different dinner and thought it was excellent. Server was very attentive without being cloying and anticipated our needs. I would highly recommend this to everyone. One note, it is a little pricey so it might be reserved for a special occasion or business meal, but otherwise definitely a "must eat."
New Year’s Eve.
Food was just ok. Marinara sauce tasted like it came from a jar. Spaghetti was like mush. Portions were small for the price. Manicotti and filet were decent. Service was average.
