Bar is quite large and when you don't want to wait for a table. I've never had a bad meal here...from their excellent salads to my fave appetizer...mussels. Excellent rendition which needs to be served with extra bread. So delish. Veal parm was perfectly cooked...

My wife and I decided to go to Bravo after some shopping. We had two "special deal" options and we had a miscommunication and had to have the waiter come back for our order. Instead of being frustrated or annoyed our waiter Steve Z was amazing and brought back bread dough for our 2 year old daugher to play with.... More

Tasted like normal. Usually good food at reasonable prices. Staff was good and checked back often. I especially liked the steak with shrimp. Very tasty and reasonable cost.

My boyfriend and I hit Bravo at the right time. They offer special prices on both their appetizer and drink menus, in the bar, from 330-630. It was a great way to sample some of their items, at a fraction of their regular prices. Everything we ordered was great. Mozz sticks, a shrimp dish, caprese salad and carpaccio! All great.... More

My husband and I were celebrating my "no more skin cancer" doctor visit earlier in the day with a celebratory lunch. We have always enjoyed lunch at Bravo, but today was not enjoyable at all. The greeting at the front was sweet and genuine and we were swiftly seated outside, after that...no such luck. It took approx 15 minutes to... More

We went here on a weekday for a nice quiet lunch. The outdoor seating is right next to the water which was peaceful and gorgeous, though, if you're going to order fruity drinks I would suggest sitting inside as the bee's can be annoying. The food is good quality and the menu has much to offer. I could eat lunch... More

Upscale Italian was just what we wanted and just what we received. Our wait for a table (fifteen minutes) was less than expected on a Friday night. Service was prompt, and the meal was very good.

Try to visit Bravo every time we are in the Des Moines area. Love their Insalata del Casa, their pasta, and their bread and oil. Have also had their crab cakes which were excellent, a lot of lump crab and not too much filling. Service has always been excellent.
