Our favorite spot always! Great lunches, dinners, social hour treats. You can eat light, or you can go all out. Everything from pizza and pasta to seafood and steak, it's always beautiful and always delicious. As a vegan married to a gluten sensitive person, we...appreciate the choices that allow us to eat successfully and well here, appetizer to dessert.More

Bravo's Scarpetta Wine Dinner on Monday, July 17th was super . The pairing of the wines to the courses was bar-none. Chef Matt Mabry did an exceptional job, food was exquisite with great flavor and freshness. Jason Whitehead, Regional Sales Manager for Scarpetta, did a...subtle and informative presentation of their wines and history. He did not pontificate on their products. He was pretty direct and forward. His and Chuck's knowledge and expertise was apparent Chuck, Bravo's man of the hour, did exceptionally well. He circulated amongst the guests and left his personal touch and passion to everyone. The staff was very courteous and professional, and interacted amongst the guests, instilling a sense of ownership and pleasure as well. The event started within an acceptable few minutes of the 6:30 pm start time. The pairing and tasting lasted approximately 3 hours. Each wine and course pairings definitely complemented each other. The flow and timing of food and wine was seamless to the guests. If it lasted longer it would have been too much, 15-20 minutes less is my preference. But, due to the number of patrons, service and food prep it is totally acceptable. Unlike other restaurants and pairings, Bravos dining area absorbed sound and loud activity. You could socialize and or listen to the presentations with very little noise distraction. In addition, Bravo's took consideration of meeting any food requirements pr restrictions, and accommodated the patron. The flow of wine and food went smoothly on the receiving end. The atmosphere and tone was established upfront. Chucks dynamic personality brought everyone one together and each person felt appreciated and special. The only thing I would recommend is that when circulating with the guests, show off the label and bottle, or display it, during each course. We have been a fan of Bravos cuisine since they opened, and have enjoyed each visit. We are looking forward to future events.More

Used to love the Bravo’s in New Orleans but hadn’t been to one in many years. It’s a bit pricey but great ambience. Service was a bit slow but they were really busy and our server was very friendly. I had the fettuccine Alfredo combo...with Caesar salad while the hubby got lasagna. The red sauce was a bit sweet for his taste but he liked it. Mine was very good. We shared a banana crepe brûlée for dessert. I got iced tea while he just had water and the bill was $43 before tip.More

Where I live now we no longer have a Bravo’s. I purposely look for Bravo’s in this area to enjoy for my birthday. I enjoyed everything from the appetizer to the dessert.

Went here as a solo traveler, my ratings below Lasagna- 8.7/10, wood fired which was a really nice aspect, good flavor and not too dominant in any one area Bread-2.4/10, really lame. The foccia was flavorful but for such a good lasagna this pairing was...incredibly disappointingMore

Have been eating here for 15 years. Ordered two Southwest salads at $18.00 each. The oysters and bread were good but the salad portion was very small. I was very disappointed. We have ordered this salad before while dining in and usually never finish it....Our take out order was about a third of normal portion. Very disappointed.More

In town for the weekend for work and was craving some good Italian pizza and wine. Unfortunately the pizza did not satisfy my craving. The pizza was mediocre, didn’t taste bad or anything, but just didn’t scream Italian to me. The dough and crust reminded...of a cheap frozen pizza crust. Bland with no flavor or crispy bits. BUT, the lasagna was off the chain. Some of the best I’ve ever had. Bourbon selection at the bar is top notch too. Would visit again.More

Outstanding food and drink, great service and wonderful atmosphere! The bread is delicious - they make their own, . We had angel hair pasta with shrimp and scallops and it really good. I've had scallops with rice pilaf, I think they call it confetti rice,...and it is scrumptious. The fried polente with rosemary mushrooms is delicious. Check it out!!!More

One of our favorite places to eat when we drive to Jackson (from northeast Louisiana) to shop and dine. While the food was by no means "bad," it was not nearly as hot, fresh, tasty and unique as it's been when we've eaten at Bravo!...in the past. We dined outside, and that could have made a difference with regard to the food's temperature. We definitely will NOT have the bruschetta again, as it was very bland and not impressive. Our waitress seemed tired and not overly interested in working that evening. I still tipped her above average, as I have been doing since COVID began . . . as I know restaurants and their staff have struggled with this "new normal" in America. All-in-all, it was average.More
