“Hidden Gem in Downtown Chilliwack”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Tucked away in the east side of Downtown Chilliwack is a delightful restaurant. Offering a true culinary experience, this spot is warm and inviting. The food is outstanding, the service efficient and the wine and martini list impressive. I enjoy the personal touch you receive from the owners who are most interested in making your time truly enjoyable. Their use of fresh herbs is notable and the unique presentation adds to the delectable offerings. The decor is modern and contemporary with soft romantic lighting. The recent addition of a lounge will make this a great spot for after work drinks.

“always great.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

happy to see the list of five stars. were there a couple of weeks ago, and it never fails to hit all the points. we're always concerned it might close as it's pretty high end and it's in a dying area of downtown and things are a bit slow in the "wack". it was about half full on a week night, so i hope that's enough for them to get by on. anyway, viva bravo - it's awesome. p.s., take your GPS, it's hard to spot from the street! cheers, bb.

“It was disappointing but I've had good meals here before”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Bravo has a lovely dining room. The tables are nicely set and well spaced so you can have a private conversation. The candles add a lovely ambiance to the room.

We have dined at Bravo on numerous occasions. This weekends dinner was somewhat disappointing compared to other experiences. The service was just a good as usual but I found some of the food somewhat disappointing. The bread that they served with dinner was not very interesting at all. I remember the bread being considerably better on previous visits. This weekend it was just like plain white and whole wheat bread that you buy at the store, not even a good quality bread. We started off with the chipotle mussels and they are amazing. We seem to always gravitate to this appetizer. It is nice and spicy and the sauce is fantastic. Too bad the bread wasn’t better. They were $14.00. For entrees my husband had the pork tenderloin and he just raved about it. I ordered the wild salmon with crab mash and lobster sauce. It sounds very good. I think I’ve had this dish before and I’ve found it to be very good. This last visit there was just not much flavour to the dish. It tasted like just regular mashed potatoes and the lobster sauce had no taste of lobster to it whatsoever. Hubby tried my dinner and his comment as well was that it was very bland. He was glad he ordered what he did. For dessert we shared a crème brulee. It was probably one of the most disappointing crème brulees that I’ve had. It was very heavy on the flour and had the texture more of a pudding cake than a crème brulee. There was also not much of a vanilla flavour to it. The prices here are very reasonable. Appetizers range in price from $11.00 - $19.00 and entrees range from $19.00 - $31.00.

We asked what the corkage fee on BYOW was going to be and we were told $19.95 for the first bottle and then you negotiate with the owner. I overheard them talking about bringing in some more reasonable wines for their wine list.

I would go back based on previous dining experiences that I’ve had here. I hope this weekends experience was just an off night for them.
