It had been several years since my last dining experience at Brave New Restaurant, and all had been impeccably impressive and delicious.

Was in town for business and looking for something besides fast food close to the hotel. Brave New World looked perfect so we took off and boy were we glad we chose it. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous and immediately sat us down. I chose the special, scallops, and my coworker the veal and both meals were excellent,... More

First of all, I want to say that I love Brave New - there isn't a dinner entrée that I've ordered that I haven't liked. My lunch experience was much different. The seating outside is beautiful and would be great for a business lunch or for someone that is visiting - the view on the water is beautiful! I found... More

The food is delicious here. The walleye is always a treat. All fish is flown in fresh daily since Arkansas is landlocked. This awarded chef is always creative with specials. You can't go wrong with the pork chops or any of the meat dishes. A little hard to find on the second floor of an office building but once you're... More

Peter Brave is 100% involved in the decisions of what food he brings into his restaurant. He works very closely with fruit and vegetable farmers, some of his ingredients coming from areas in Arkansas. He's very particular on the quality of seafood he prepares and serves. I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal here, and I've been... More

This is an excellent location overlooking the Arkansas River. A formal setting that is perfect for business lunch or a nice date. The menu offerings present a display of locally gathered produce and meats in a nice presentation. I highly recommend the non traditional grilled cheese sandwich. There is an excellent wine list.

On business in Little Rock and was looking for local flavor. After site search I found Braves. The food was excellent and the service spot on. It is a little hard to find because it is nestled within an office park but please give this gem a try. Option to dine inside or on the terrace with great view. The... More

Outstanding quality and impeccable service. Also the freshest fish. Absolutely wonderful atmosphere although it may seem a little awkward to get to if you are not from here. It is well worth the effort. Call for reservations. It Is a perfect place for a romantic dinner or an upscale business dinner. Everything is top notch. Also if weather permits nice... More
