Bravas has turned into one of our favorite spots to dine in Healdsburg whether it be for a large family sized meal or for a simple/light meal. The menu has wonderful options to fit every palate and their soft serve dessert is to die for (especially the rhubarb crumble topping!). We highly recommend the Octopus and goat cheese/caramelized onion torte as well!

This was a fun and delicious place to enjoy a drink and tapas. We could have had dinner but found the setting to be better for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. The dates wrapped in bacon are the best ever!

Varied menu, service a little slow, but over all really good food. They need more umbrellas on the patio to shield diners from the sun. Plus, it's in Healdsburg, so close in.

We dined here following the recommendation of a host at one of the wine tastings we did earlier in the day. What a delicious and original selection of tapas! We enjoyed sharing a half-dozen small plates between two of us, plus a tasty soft-serve ice cream with goat milk caramel for dessert. We loved everything, but favorites included the bacon wrapped dates, the crispy pig ears (they really are delicious) and toast with goat cheese, golden onions and white truffle honey. Service was friendly and attentive. There was a nice selection of wines by the glass including a number of Spanish whites and reds that would have paired nicely with our plates had we been drinking wine with our meal. We dined inside but the outdoor patio in back looked very nice too. If you like this style of dining and sharing a variety of small dishes, you'll love Bravas.

We were a party of 6 and everyone was raving about the food when we left. Obviously this is tapas style, so we had to order many dishes. After the first round of ordering we actually reordered many items because they were so good. We were soo full after many, many dishes, but you must find room for the soft serve ice cream for dessert!

Stand outs for me were the poached duck egg, and the "grilled cheese"

It was a very relaxed environment outside and a fun bar as well. Crafty cocktails and a unique menu was everything we were looking for after a long day of wine tasting.

A must try when in Healdsburg.

Our server was great too. She was from Maui and so are we.
