Great place to eat in Lenox. Restaurant is very small and they don't take reservations. Small plates were great. There was nothing we didn't enjoy. We loved their selection of specialty pizzas. Great wine list. Great energy in the restaurant.

A Saturday night with no dinner reservations during peak leaf season brought us to Brava where reservations are not accepted (so arrive early or plan to wait). We arrived a bit after 6 and waited about 20 min for a seat at the bar. I had an amazing fall sangria with hints of cinnamon and cayenne pepper. YUM! We picked... More

Great little tapas spot. Food was tasty and had a great selection of wine and beer. Go early or be prepared for a significant wait! Definitely would recommend to friends visiting Lenox and the surrounding area.

Fantastic place to eat in Lenox. We sat at the bar last night & enjoyed wine, beer for my husband & delicious tapas. Food came quickly & servers were v friendly.

The owner of at The Cornell Inn recommended Brava to us and we loved it! The menu had one page of great tapas and three pages of every wine and beer known to man. Crowded, but worth the wait.

We have been to Brava many times as we are local residents. The selection of wines and beers is amazing, in all price ranges. The food choices are wonderful, all very tasty. Yesterday I ordered the grilled sirloin steak with chimichurri sauce. It was excellent. However, I like meat with a spicy sauce, so I ordered hot sauce. I was... More

Went here before a Tanglewood event. Loved the small plates! Wine list was good, tho no Sauvignon Blanc. Can't remember what we ordered instead, but it was quite good along the SB lines. Will certainly go back as there was plenty on the menu to try. Very small place, cozy. Attentive wait staff.

Amazing wine and beer list. Fabulous, well-executed tapas and simple plates. What was great is the fun atmosphere--youthful and yet, relaxing. Loved this little spot!

We had heard tell of how great BRAVA was and finally decided to see for ourselves. Nice intimate and casual place, not fancy, but comfortable - reminded me of tapas places I had been in Europe. Service was great, with three very knowledgeable guys serving us and answering questions. The food was great. Modest sized portions, excellent sauces and presentations.... More

We had pizza, pasta, tomato soup, salad, and all were excellent. Service was excellent too. Definitely worth a stop if in the area. The only thing lacking is outdoor dining.
