This somewhat unassuming cafe with exterior seating failed to impress despite the good food and coffe, both of which were overpriced. Much room for improvement in service quality and dining comfort provided.

Great staff, unique food, wonderful atmosphere! Be adventurous and try new things. Pear, blue cheese and shallots bruchetta - who'd have guessed that would be so delicious! Excellent wine selections

Brava opens at 5 pm. When we arrived at 5:05 pm, there was one open table and just a few seats at the bar. Word has gotten around that this place serves not only good food but interesting and different food. For example, how about mushrooms stuffed with a smooth mix of black beans and chorizo? Small plates include mini... More

Brava is a top restaurant in Lenox. Great beer and even better food. The portions are small yes, but the taste makes up for it. You don't go out to eat in Lenox to complain about the price. It's expected. No problem paying extra here, food is superb. Will be back again and again

Brava is a sophisticated little spot that's a nice break from the heritage or rumpys. The Crowd it mostly made up of late 20's something to early 40's. Great place to bring a date and chat. They offer late night menu and awesome beer and wine list

Stopped here before visiting Tanglewood for dinner and drinks. We had the goat cheese, mushroom, and fig jam bruschetta, shrimp tacos with mango salsa, and Swiss chard with black garlic and pine nuts. All were amazing, but the bruschetta was the highlight. So good! Service was attentive and polite (which feels weird to mention, but so often at places like... More

Ducked in to get out of the rain early evening, and the small restaurant was practically full. There was just one seat available at the bar and I grabbed it. This is a place you almost prefer to sit at the bar; it's tapas all the way, plus a tremendous offering of wine and beer. The vibe is welcoming and... More

Brava is a great place to spend an evening in Lenox. The wine and beer menu is extensive and the service is nothing short of fabulous. We especially want to give a shout out to Felicia, our server, for her fab personality and her great recommendations. We ordered a variety of tapas and would especially recommend the fried chick peas,... More

We liked the atmosphere, wine and beer list. Help was very cordial and we enjoyed sampling the wine and beer before ordering; however, when our appetizer arrived at the price of $17.95 we were amazed and disappointed to discover that there were only 2 scallops!!!! That means the price is $9.00 for one scallop. The pizza was very good but... More

We went to Brava this past weekend. We walked in on a Friday night at 8:30 and sat right down, but I venture a guess that once the Lenox theater/cultural season starts, that will be a dicey proposition. It is very small, only 6-7 tables, plus the bar. We had a great time sampling tapas and enjoyed our drinks. It... More
