We visited Healdsburg in October and found this gem. We had a late start (8:00 PM) on dinner and many of the restaurants were already booked or closing soon. We walked into Bravas and were struck by the wonderful smells and beautiful patio in the back.
We sat down and ordered a bottle of wine, floating along with the mellow atmosphere of the red wood and pine trees surrounding us. After a couple of tapas plates, we ordered the Tomahawk Chop for our dinner, based on a recommendation from our server. It was spectacular. The meat was tender and full of flavor and more than large enough for our party of 5 to split.
Couple that with the "oldies" music being piped in, Bravas' atmosphere, service and wine selection, our evening on a wonderful and flavorful note.
