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

It's been a while since I've been to Brava, but this past Saturday evening, my craving for their lobster poutine got the best of me. Without a reservation, and a lively full house, we were lucky to be seated up at the bar and served by the nicest bartender! The lobster poutine was as good as anticipated and the service... More

My husband and I just walked up the menu looked good we had the tuna sandwich and the flat bread all was season very well and cooked to perfection! The server we had was funny and very attentive, there were not a lot of tables full. I would absolutely go back when I have the chance!

Lovely, informal restaurant, with relaxed atmosphere. Ordered the only soup available but it was too salty. No other soup to replace. The mussels were great and a reasonable size, enough for a main meal even though it was classified as one of the starter dishes. Service was efficient and friendly. May try another visit.

Wow I feel really bad , I recommended this to a fiend from out of town because the reviews looked good. The duck I had was under cooked and stone cold , the service was laughable as we had three different servers .
