You may find it a little hard to find, but it's located where it is because of the lovely river view from the outside seating. Usually an older crowd, but not a stodgy place. Tastefully modern understated interior. Food is dependably very good with a very fresh fish selection daily. Chef Peter Brave is great at sauces and a warm... More

Brave New is definitely a favorite for any special occasion. Great food in a not-too-pretentious setting with attentive servers and an owner/chef who tries to visit all the tables. This is an easy pick for any time my spouse and I just need some "us" food pampering. Favorite dishes include halibut, sea scallops and pecan-encrusted trout. May be a little... More

Meals at our table ranged from quite good (pecan-encrusted trout) to outstanding (lobster ravioli). Side dishes of vegetable were well-presented and delicious. Service was attentive but not annoying.

After spending a day at the races, my friends and I had dinner and as always, we were pleased. We started off with the goat cheese mousse and it was divine. We each had different entrees and we could not come up with a concensus on who had the best meal. Looking forward to returning very soon!

Fantastic menu selection if fresh fish and seasonal sides prepared and presented perfectly. Lovely view of the river with a great overall atmosphere. Only downside is in finding it in its office complex looking parking garage building, but well worth overlooking.

I organized a class reunion dinner at Brave New Restaurant. We gathered in a private party room and were assigned a waiter named John. Twenty of us were served attentively and enthusiastically. He kept the drinks coming, served our courses efficiently, and was friendly and helpful to everyone. Everyone ordered from a small menu, which included beef tenderloin, pork tenderloin,... More

After a day of medical visits, we enjoyed a quiet lunch in this out of the way spot. I enjoyed the quiche and hubby liked the duck hot dog. Will be back.

I got the filet, and it was cooked perfectly. My husband got the sausage stuffed quail, was very dry, and strange mix of flavors on the plate.

Have been eating at Brave New since it was in the old Steak & Egg at the bottom of Cantrell Hill. That was years ago. Today Peter's got the same enthusiastic, inventive approach to fabulous dining. Daily specials reflect a commitment to local and fresh ingredients. You'll enjoy the Best walleye ever. Steaks are cooked perfectly. Savor the best in... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Little Rock and the view of the river is worth taking a little extra effort to find it. I've usually been there for business lunches and have never been disappointed. Fresh fish specials are outstanding.
