Great Food, Service was good, but not great.

Our first visit was out on the patio and our food and service was excellent. Our waiter recommended a wine to us and we have been drinking it ever since our visit. We then returned with a group of 16. Food was good, but service for our large group was not that great. We had to wait quite a... read more

My husband and I never ate here before and decided to check it out while out shopping. Food was very good, however, our service was not the greatest. Not the most friendly server. But I did notice that the other servers were very nice and attentive to the customers, so maybe ours was having a bad day. I will eat... More

this is a restaurant that gets it close to real italian food. It is Americanized and a chain, so if you want real Italian, ask them to reduce the cheese.

A wonderful dining experience that not only has a well rounded menu, however Staff that not only allows customization but excels in it. Great service is a mantra. Shout out Pamela and David. It is a "Gotta Go" kinda pkace. IHG, Rube

We recently hosted a large (35+ people) surprise birthday party for my father in the private room at Bravo. Long story short - the event could not have gone better! From the pre-event planning all of the way through execution, the Bravo team took the time to understand our needs and dedicate the necessary time and resources to ensure it... More

Very nice food for a chain restaurant. Went there with a party of 6 and we were seated quickly. Everyone found something they liked on the big menu. Waitress nice but tried to get us to order lots of extras which we didn't want.

I love Bravo! That's about all I can say. I've never had a bad experience there and the low- calorie/healthy menu items are delicious. Three of us went there a week ago and we all ordered off the " light" menu. All three entrées were wonderful and very satisfying. You didn't feel deprived eating healthy. At around 500 calories or...

Decent food, great service, and no corkage fee. If you can get a table outside on a nice day then even better.

Have you ever eaten cardboard? Well, here is your opportunity. Thank you suburban middle America for setting your standards so low that places like this can thrive. I went here based on reviews even though I should have known better. It's not that I expected top authentic Italian in a Des Moines suburb, but I know the difference between effort,... More

Well done! The chopped salad was delicious. The choices were outstanding. Not your run of the mill Italian food chain. Service was great. Afterward we enjoyed a walk around the lake!!
