I lived 12 years in Barcelona and my husband is Spanish, so we usually avoid Spanish restaurants abroad. We made an exception today and didn't regret it. We had a great time and food at Bravas. Chorizo and pimientos del padrón (green peppers), clams al Cava, for starters and a very good paella. We had lunch in the patio, service... More

We loved the tapas arrangement and food was really good. If you can sit out back. The atmosphere is casual.

Very tasty Spanish tapas. Enjoyed everything that we tried, but the pork cheek sliders and tortilla were particularly good and we were thrilled to find padron peppers (too bad the serving size was so skimpy).

My husband & I would fully recommend dinner at Bravas. We were only staying in Healdsburg for 2 nights but we had an excellent meal. Food was fresh & some of the best tapas we have had (in comparison with the UK). Reasonably priced, good wine & really good service. We sat outside & there was a good atmosphere.

If you want to escape from the typical, this is your place! Not your average tapas, but truly delightful and a real destination restaurant! Sangria was the best I've ever had! Eat outside to enhance your experience!

We were quite thrilled to return, and enjoy as great a meal as on our 1st visit back in 2013. We loved the opportunity for dining outside on the patio. Menu items are so flavor-fully prepared. We had: watermelon salad, beets salad, the calamari, the scallops and the patatas bravas. Friendly and prompt service. Tasty albarino wine and red sangria... More

Unique menu, with more items I wanted to order than I could possibility eat, guess I'll have to go back sometime. I have a local tapas restaurant that is my favorite so there was stiff competition , they did not disappoint. My only suggestion is the Sangria, it needs some work. Nice outdoor seating made for an enjoyable evening.

We have been to Bravas at least 6 times. The food and the service are always outstanding. The marinated mushrooms and the quail are our favorite dishes. The bar is also excellent. Try their Sangria which is Cava based. There is nothing on the menu I would not recommend.

The most photogenic G&T. Sat down for a snack of pork cheek sliders and ended up staying through an amazing watermelon salad and lamb meatballs. Sweet outdoor area.

Bravas has good Spanish Tapas. The outdoor eating area is delightful. However, the serving staff is covered with Tattoos and frankly I find it ugly and wish that they would cover up while at work. Having their arms and backs covered with Tattoos is certainly their right, but not appropriate for an upscale restaurant and detracts from everything else.
