I choose this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor ratings and was I glad I did. Once you get past the building where the restaurant is located, a great dining experience is at hand. My wife and I sat on the outside patio and had a great view of the river and downtown Little Rock. We shared the Mushroom Tart... More

We found this restaurant from trip advisor recommendations. We were visiting Little Rock and wanted a good patio lunch dining experience. It was perfect. Our server, Gordy was great. I had the chicken spinach dinner...very good and the BLT was awesome. I will return when I am back in Little Rock!

I recently enjoyed celebrating an anniversary with a group of friends at Brave New. I must say that despite missing months in between, the dining experience was just as pleasant as the last time and the food no less delicious. For a Summer dinner, I decided to have the grilled romaine salad with chicken and enjoyed every bite. The salad... More

Awesome deck overlooking Arkansas River and watching hummingbirds is usually comfort enough on a cool evening, but the food was better than the ambiance! The specials were delicious! And dark chocolate Crete brûlée was excellent! A great evening!

Great for couples and to entertain visiting family and friends. This is also a great place for a business lunch. Tables are spaced well, so you may have private conversations with clients. They need to add white anchovies to the Caesar Salad and lose the salt. Everything else is a great treat for the traveling foodie! Service is very personal,... More

The food here by Chef Peter Brave has been consistently great for 25 years. When its beautiful weather there's nothing more glorious then eating outside one the deck with a view of the Arkansas River facing downtown Little Rock. Most folks order the fish, but I love the avocado and shrimp salad. Shrimp are always large and tasty and the... More

I have been dining with Peter Brave for 25 years. The food has been just about perfect this entire time. My go to meal when they have it is the walleye fish - just perfect. I love the mixed grill, their salads and deserts. After hundreds of visits, I think it is one of the best.

We decided at the last minute to go out to dinner at Brave New, knowing that reservations are usually made much sooner than an hour before you want to go eat! But, we did it anyway and actually got one for 8:00 that evening. We were able to sit out on their beautiful porch and it was a gorgeous night... More
