Small restaurant hidden away on a side street

The place is on a side street, the bar is small but it is a real nice place to spend time in the middle of winter. We were there mid February 2015. Snow all over the place. Small place, holds about 30 people. Small plates and very good sangria. We stumbled upon it while walking down Church St. They have... More

Coming through town after a nighttime music event, we were glad to find Brava open and serving food. Service was quick, the choices of wine and beer were extensive, and the late supper was just what our party of 3 needed. We had the curry carrot soup, arugula salad, stuffed mushrooms and fennel and hot pepper pizza. Everything tasted excellent... More

We had a fantastic meal at Brava! I had a flight of white wines to drink, and my husband tried the extensive beer list. We had the spicy potatoes (can't remember the exact title) and they were delicious (spicy!). I also had the butternut squash risotto and my husband ate wings. Nice, tucked away location. No problems getting in and... More

The food was stupendous. Great service, excellent beer on tap and wonderfully delicious tapas. The restaurant is small so during peak season make sure you get there early.

Tourists may be disappointed with the atmosphere but will be delighted with the food, service, and friendly staff. The pizza baked to order and the calamari are worth weekly repetition. Lenox regulars are so happy to have Brava in the neighborhood.

Been here 3-4 times. Always wonderful. Great beer list ( and wine list, but that's not so unusual). Calamari (very good), scallops (excellent), chard salad (perfect) this time. We have never had a dud here. We try to eat at the bar, always fun.

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
