We went for a Sunday brunch to celebrate my mom's birthday. Like every buffet, there's some winners and losers, but overall, it was very good! I recommend it FYI - they do have pizza, but it has many other items as well

Recently hosted a business dinner in the private room at Bravo. The set up was great for our group of 15 or so. The food was good quality and well prepared and the prices were very reasonable! I was a little surprised that we only had one server for the whole room, but she was a total pro so perhaps... More

Tried the lunch tuna sandwich which was excellent, sweet potato chips as a side were also great. Stop here at least 1 month for lunch, all meals have been great! Also greated quickly and waitstaff if always pleasant!

Excellent menu choices for everyone. Close to the airport. Reservation suggested as the place fills fast even during the week nights.

Bravo is locally owned, locally sourced, and while the tablecloths are white, it is a comfortable place for less formal gatherings as well as family celebrations and special events. The quality of the food and service never disappoints.

This is fine dining with reasonable prices. Their wood-fire pizza I'd to die for. The owners travel all through the world for unique foods. The atmosphere is very nice to have a "cold one" and dinner. The owners are very personable and will come around and make sure are happy with your meal. If you want to impress your guests... More

Visited the restaurant with a group of 8. Reservations fill up fast and we couldn't get in until 8:30pm so we knew it must be good. Friendly staff, good food. Most of us ordered steaks and they were all cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back!

As you enter the restaurant, you get a nice feeling of the ambience. I opted to sit on the patio, since it was nice out the day of my dinner at this place. But I was disappointed at the quality of the outdoor furniture. I ordered artichoke and angel hair pasta. Added shrimp to it. Another total disappointment. No special... More

Arrived in Kalamazoo and looked for a restaurant not too far from our hotel and chanced upon this one. What a good find. I like beer and the choice of craft beers was excellent - at least the one that was recommended by our server. We shared a pizza for one - quite enough - and a salad - that... More

We have been to Bravo many times and have always had great dinners. It continues to get better and better. The pizzas are creative and delicious. The same is true of the entrees and salads. The chef is innovative. The service is very friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is warm and inviting...particularly the booths. Portion sizes are large (except scallops)... More
