The food is ALWAYS good here. ALWAYS. The service is amazing. I usually come here for a sweet date with my sweetheart for some wine and delicious gingerbread cake dessert (which wasn't on the menu when we were there last week). Last week I went with my girlfriends and we shared a cheese (sheep and goat for me) plate and... More

One of the best meals I've had in Calgary in the 3 years I've lived here. Roasted mushroom and barley risotto is amazing, as is the lobster poutine. We also hard the herbed gnocchi to start which was delightful. This place has a fantastic atmosphere for a date or for dinner with friends. Service was wonderful - I was starting... More

Ventured out in the cold and snow to have a beautiful meal at Brava as it has been a while since I was last there. The restaurant was quiet for a Monday in minus 20 weather and we were early so we had a choice of seats. The service from Sara was outstanding! The food - lobster poutine, scallops, beef... More

My kids booked us a table for our wedding anniversary. Absolutely fantastic food and a great atmosphere. The pork plate is to die for.

Had a late lunch on a Tuesday with a friend from out of town to show her the lobster poutine which is definitely the crown jewel of this place. We sat for more than 10 minutes before being greeted by our server which is highly unacceptable especially when there were only 4 other tables being occupied at the time. After... More

My husband and I visited Brava Bistro for our anniversary. We had heard good things and read many fantastic reviews online, so we decided to check it out for ourselves! We were NOT disappointed. When we arrived at the restaurant, they were exceptionally warm and welcoming, seating us and offering to take our coats. Our server paid very close attention... More

Visited this restaurant a couple nights ago on a date and had a wonderful experience. We split an excellent flavourful bottle of Sangiovese then lingered over the Scallops on a bed of spaghetti squash, goat cheese, and chorizo. AMAZING. We then shared a farmstead salad (Brava's version of a Caesar salad) that was perfectly dressed along with some bread with... More

We dine out a lot. I used to visit Brava more often but in the past few years have been exploring some of the new and interesting restaurants opening in the city. What I am finding is that the 'new, cool' places could care less about my business and their service reflects it. How refreshing it was to visit Brava... More

I need to begin by saying I've eaten here a lot over the years. It always seemed like it was the place we ended up at because the food was good, the atmosphere busy and happy and you aren't gouged when the bill comes. But the menu never really changed and it got dull. They have a new chef and... More
