We sat outside, received fast and friendly service and felt it was a good value for the price. I love their ribs, fresh veggies and white chocolate mousse.

After a very busy day at the Gilmore Car Museum in nearby Hickory Corners I was looking for a quiet restaurant near my hotel. Using previous Trip Advisor reviews I decided to try it. I was greeted by the staff who noticed I was soaked from driving a Model T Ford, and quickly escorted me to a table. I found... More

I found Bravo! on a list of Kalamazoo brew pubs. Walking into the place I wondered if I had the wrong address. The decor looks more like a fine dining restaurant and the menu is upscale too. I had to ask for the beer list and it was wisked away after I ordered from it like the restaurant was ashamed... More

We came to Kalamazoo for a weekend getaway to take in the Airzoo, Gilmore car museum and the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary (all of which are first rate) and didn't expect to stumble across a gourmet dining experience. Everything was wonderful, from the warm bread to the (shared) Caesar salad, to the entrees (filet mignon for him, ravioli with sweet potato... More

Bravo serves first class meals with 5 star service. I appreciate the layout of the space to provide private small group gatherings. I highly recommend Bravo for both lunch and dinner for private meetings, date nights or just meeting up with family and friends.

Bravo is our go to place! Wonderful service, amazing food. We've had a rehearsal dinner, birthdays, Thanksgiving, numerous luncheons, moving away party - you name it and this is where we celebrate, or simply go to relax for a great meal. We love Bravo and you will too.

We just tried this restaurant for the first time and had Sunday Brunch. It was great! Lots of cold and hot food choices and a great dessert selection for after your meal. My daughter is 6 1/2 and really enjoyed the food too. The waiter we had was attentive and we were greeted by two different people when we walked... More

Had long time friends visiting and we had to take them to Bravo's and Bravo's showed why we chose to go there. The food was great, enjoyed it, it was fairly quiet and a great atmosphere. Unlike some of the more expensive restaurants in town, you feel like like you get your money's worth for the food you eat. I... More
