A lot of care goes into your time spent here. Beautiful view while you dine and careful planning so they were not overbooked for the holiday. Knowledgeable, attentive wait staff. Food that is beautiful, vibrantly fresh and masterfully, artistically prepared. I felt like a queen, my hubby chose well! Can't wait to revisit someday.

Enjoyed the shrimp/avocado appetizer. My wife's pine nut crusted salmon was great! The walleye was good but a bit bland. The dessert sampler was wonderful but if I could pick one of the four desserts that came in the sampler I'd go with the chocolate creme brulé hands down.

We eat here frequently and have never been disappointed. Last night was no exception. My wife had the trout stuffed with crabmeat and spinach while I had the veal - lightly breaded and served in a lime beurre blanc sauce. Both were outstanding as were the accompanying vegetables - carrots, oven browned potatoes and a baked sliced green squash with... More

After reading a couple reviews thought wow a real restaurant with high quality dinning. After hours on the road I was looking forward to a culinary delight. However, what I got was a garden salad drowning in a vinaigrette, it was bitter and overwhelming not to mention soggy. I could not eat it. My fish (wall eye) did taste nice,... More

My wife and kids suppressed me with a special dinner for our 25 anniversary. The quail was wonderful. The staff shared our cake with us. Thanks

Overall, we had a lovely Saturday night dinner. I showed up without a reservation, and while they were certainly able to accommodate us, the house was about two-thirds full—a positive sign, especially since my No. 1 complaint is that the restaurant is completely hidden from society. Due to the location, there is absolutely zero chance you will happen by it... More

When our child was a baby, Peter Brave allowed us to change her diaper on the desk in his small office. We took the same daughter there last week before she left for her second semester of college. We have been there for many special event dinners between the two milestones! It hasn't changed, oh except for a new waiter... More

Convenient to the heights, as well as downtown, the brave new restaurant is located above the Arkansas River with a fantastic suspended outdoor eating area. While in a very unusual commercial location, some might venture to say in the suburbs, a brave new restaurant has a fantastic menu, lovingly prepared food, wonderful wine list, and knowledgeable staff. It is a... More
