A gem of a find traveling north from one Berkshire town to another. This small restaurant belies it's size by offering a splendid selection of dishes to please any palate, superb service and a vast wine selection (even by the glass). We arrived after 9pm and happy to know that it's hours extended past the typical Berkshire eateries. Whether you... More

Small place, and we had no trouble getting a table for 6 at 6ish. We must have been ahead of the rush. Each of our dishes were decent, but the portions are definitely small and the price is large. Seemed as If it was that type of town though. Next time we will stop by a pizza place instead.

Brava is a great place to eat and drink. Their menu changes monthly and carries unique meals that will leave your taste buds satisfied. However, if you show up with a large group of people, you are unlikely to be able to get a table. It is a small establishment, best suited for 2-4 people. They also have a wide... More

Superb food, terrific service, and open late enough that I didn't have to try to cram in dinner and rush rush rush in between golf and Tanglewood. It's a small space-- some would say cramped, others would say intimate-- but if you really enjoy good food and drink it's totally worth being in close quarters with your other diners-- I... More

this restaurant had been mentioned in the New York Times article '36 hours in the Berkshires' a couple of weeks before we ate there. As a result it was jam packed!! We shared the Greek salad which consisted of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers with some feta cheese sprinkled on top and an outstanding balsamic vinaigrette - the best I have... More

We walked in a little after 5 pm and they had just seated everyone who had arrived in parties of 2 in tables scattered in the small space. No one was eating yet or even had menus. So when we asked if our party of four could be seated and they said it would be at least an hour wait... More

We had some great tasting tapas here which we had with their wine tasting selection, it was all excellent. It also had a nice cosy atmosphere and was open late.

They're open late so we were able to go after a show. Eclectic menu but plenty of choices. Each dish was different and very good. Swiss chard, which my husband was against ordering, was amazing...even he agreed to that. The boom boom shrimp was delicious and the meatballs were perfect. I'd skip the bruschetta but maybe we orders the wrong... More

While in Lenox for the day, we had an early dinner at Brava, a small tapas place with a great wine selection. I know that it gets crowded, so we went early. We had great service, a wonderful selection of small plates, and shared a bottle of wine that I am still thinking about. Try the tenderloin. . . yum.

Open late, which is a big virtue if you want to eat after going to Tanglewood. The food is good and the service is helpful.
