Our Ladies Lunch group meets here once a month. We love the private room we are given. The food satisfies every pallet. We love the desserts and enjoy our salads and seafood. The service is usually very good and the meals are well presented. I'd like a bit more variety, but on the whole the group leaves looking forward to... More

Bravo to Bravo For a chain and to be honest it's a chain restaurant it's very good. I'm born and raised from Ny living in Iowa for many years now. I will eat here if in DesMoines. I enjoyed the decor. The food is very nice. I left feeling complete and satisfied. Thank You and looking forward to yet another... More

Our dinner club again selected Bravo for our group of 6 for a low key but festive dinner on New Years Eve. What we all enjoy about this restaurant is the consistent service and quality of the food. The restaurant was full but once again the exceptional staff ( all are great- we had Alex L last night but Dee... More

I dined here with coworkers recently. I admit that I wasn't in favor of the choice, hoping for something non-chain. However, I was won over. I dined off of the lower calorie menu and enjoyed a good chicken pasta dish. My co-worker are semi-regulars and they claim that the restaurant is quite consistent and reliable. I now believe them. I... More

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
