Nice place!

Came here after an exhilarating performance at Shakespeare and Company. Impeccable service, unparalleled wine and beer list. Small, handmade pizzas like few I've ever eaten. Small plate of chard, pine nuts and black garlic was superb. To top it all off, the lead actor in the play we'd... read more

We had an early dinner here before going to see The Capitol Steps at the Cranwell. The tapas selections were great. They were all delicious, but probably our favorites were the Garlic Shrimp and the Stuffed Mushrooms. Bread pudding for dessert was heavenly. Even the espresso was great! We highly recommend Brava for an excellently prepared tapas meal accompanied by... More

Brava continues to be a great spot for late night dining in Lenox, Mass. The selection of pizzas and small plates, craft beer and wine is excellent. The service is fine too.

Small plates are great. This place is quite small, and doesn't take reservations, so get there early to get a table. I've been several times and still haven't tried everything on the menu. Everything I've had has been excellent.

We love Brava! There are lots of terrific restaurants here in the Berkshires, but Brava has become one of our go-to spots especially for a light, early dinner before theater in Lenox or Pittsfield, or before a Tanglewood concert. I think we've gone back three times in just a few weeks--a record for us. No reservations and few tables, but... More

We love Brava- the only problem is getting a table. The small plates are excellent, varied, and interesting and the wines are good too. We don't eat meat or shellfish and there was plenty to keep us happy and full. The tables are quite close together in this small restaurant, but no one seems to mind. We sat at the... More

All the tapas were great, but the lamb chops were especially good, and the wine was wonderful. Nice ambience.

What a perfect place : foodwise, stunning, I tried almost everything since I'm spending a summer in Lenox, flatbreads are as amazing as the salads are singular and so tasty. I can't start speaking about the beers 'cause they have way too many choices, but I got to admit the hopstitution as a draft beer is my fav. Wines, the... More

I had read the reviews and was anxious to try this location - I was not disappointed!!!!! Everything we had to eat was delicious - a series of tappas-like plates accompanies by delicious wine. We started with Calimari, a bruscetta selection, a pizza and the urge to try their chicken drummettes. All tasted delicious!!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

Excellent food! Fun atmosphere! Great service! Don't miss the meatballs and the pizza. The wine list and beer choices are quite impressive. Serves food until midnight!
