This restaurant continues to exceed all my expectations. Although its located in a very odd location, once you get inside the dining area and more so the outside deck provide a scenic view of the river. The menu is quite wide and varied with freshness and local being the key ingredients. I highly recommend this eatery as a must-go to... More

Good feel. Lots of regulars. Nice views of the river from the a lot of seats inside. Some balcony space. Parking is odd. Not hard or bad just odd. The menu doesn't really do a lot of changing. Wine list good.

I have been to Brave New several times now. We especially enjoy eating on the terrace overlooking the river and downtown Little Rock. The food is always exceptional and the service has been great. The strawberry shortcake (my favorite dessert) was the best by far I have ever had. This is a seasonal favorite when the Arkansas strawberries are in... More

I have dined there many times and have found it to be consistently very good. When the weather is good, dining on the deck is lovely.

This seems to be in an obscure location but is absolutely worth the hunt to find! We had an early seating on the porch and were able to watch the sunset over the Arkansas River as we dined on fabulous dishes! The goat cheese mousse was fun as an appetizer - we preferred using the incredible homemade bread to the... More

This restaurant is always consistent. Food is prepared perfectly. I wish they had a better wine list although they do have a decent list.

My companion and I dined here while passing through on a road trip. We arrived early and were seated immediately. Our martinis were some of the best we have had and our duck entrees delicious and abundant. Our server was friendly and efficient, checking on us just the right amount of times. The view of the river is nice and... More

We welcome you... Again! We're serious about quality dining, but in a relaxed atmosphere. We've won a lot of awards for best overall restaurant, best views, best servers, but we'll never rest on our laurels. The best compliment you can pay us is to come back, and bring your friends!

You can count on us to use the freshest and highest quality ingredients - always. We may occasionally improvise, or even run out of an item, but we will never offer you less than the best. Freshness also offers some flexibility to accommodate special health needs (check out the number of gluten-free items!), And we will do so to the best of our abilities.
