This is by far the best brunch in the area.. Many “breakfast options”, carved roast beef and ham. Chicken. Extensive choices in side dishes. Many beautiful desserts that tast as good as they look.

Our family go to place for holidays, parties and a fantastic meal. It’s like home to us. Nicest bridal shower we hosted there.

Bravo is our favorite Italian restaurant in the Kalamazoo area. It is reliably good and the best of the few upscale Italian. The Caesar salad (yes to anchovies!) is excellent as are the thin crust pizzas. On Thursday nights, pizzas, pastas, and pints are half-price...More

Their Lobster Ravioli is Great! And they will make as a dinner plate instead of an entree, just ask for it. It's my favorite meal!

This is a very high quality, consistently reliable, locally owned restaurant. Everything is excellent. The mushroom soup is made in house, as are a variety of other specialties. This is fine dining for a very reasonable price. Service is always friendly and efficient. Highly recommended...More
