Food was generally good, but on one trip the strip steak was perfect and the next trip, it was overcooked and had gristle. Service was good, and there was a view of the river.

Brave new restaurant serves only top notch food with excellent service. I had Sea Bass that night which is important not to overcook. It was perfect. I felt like the prices were a little overpriced but it was a great evening.
