There isn't much I can say about this place outside of the fact it is amazing! I go there so often that the staff knows my name, and drink order as soon as they see me walking into the restaurant. A must GO!

This little, unassuming place grabbed our attention last summer and we've been stopping in regularly since then. Whether with friends or as a couple, EVERY time has been spectacular. The bartenders (Felicia and Tom) are amazingly knowledgeable and helpful in helping to pair a beer or wine with some of their fantastically interesting food. Last visit we enjoyed a potato... More

Usual explanation applies - in my book three stars means good, not average. The Brava is a good tapas bar, but you have to know exactly what you're in for. It is not a restaurant where you would go for a quiet or intimate meal. Primarily it serves beer and it serves tapas. The portion sizes are as small as... More

Congenial place in the middle of Lenox ...my wife and i loved being at the bar and enjoy the company of the bartenders. The food may not be enough for hungry folks but is certainly of trusted quality (if not so gluten free friendly) The wine as recommended was excellent. This establishment serves until the midnight hour and I am... More

Our party of four went here on a Saturday night in late October. Arrived at 6:05 pm and had to wait for a table to be cleaned off. it stayed busy for the next two hours...contrary to what we observed in other restaurants in town. Now we know why! Three of us enjoyed our Southern Tier Pumpkin ales, while one... More

Good range of innovative tapas-style food in a really good atmosphere. No reservations accepted, so take your chances or turn up later in the evening when it seemed to get quieter. Good range of beers and very good service. Not cheap though.

Staff was soooo kind and the bottle of wine we chose was very good. The small tapa's such as the bruschetta's were delicious. Do not know all the small meals we ate but it was tasty!!!! In the end the price was a little high but we had a feest night.

We went here for drinks before going to Alta for dinner. We wished we had spent 2 nights in Lenox, as we could have eaten here the next night. We ordered wine by the glass but the best value is to order a flight of 3 wines for about $15 - three really large pours of either red or whites... More

This place abounds with great food and service. It's open late too. We had several of the Tapa's. Wasn't sold on the"Greek Salad" but everything else was fantastic.
