“Call Ahead to Check for Advertisements”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

This restaurant was Biddles last year and we had a not so great experience there but decided to try it again. It seems to be still a work in progress in terms of what it want to offer when, so don’t depend on what you see in a publication as to when such things as “early bird specials” are offered. We saw a couple give the waiter a coupon only to be told it was old (there was not expiration date) and would not be honored.

That said, there is a happy hour with half price drinks and specially priced appetizers. My husband had the shrimp cocktail and I had the bruschetta and both were great although again I would ask that the balsamic be over the bruschetta rather than as a decoration on the plate.

We then moved to the early bird specials in the restaurant. Both our entrees were very good. Again, make sure you understand the rules. You need to order two beverages for the early bird specials and what you ordered from the bar in happy hour doesn’t count. Also a week ago, the end time for the EB was 5:45 and now it is 5:30, so maybe it is best to call ahead in what seems to be a changing environment.

We may try this restaurant again this year, but feel it is one where you have to be on your guard to make sure you are getting what is advertised. It also seems that there is a lot of turnover in wait staff. Our waiter didn’t seem very familiar with the menu and didn’t seem familiar with “the rules” governing our next door table’s coupons.

“If you could only go to one restaurant, THIS would be the one.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

We went for both lunch and dinner and experienced great atmosphere, entertainment (at dinner), and outstanding food. For those of us who frequent restaurants, it becomes easy to make the distinction between good and great food. Bratta's is definitely GREAT food with a menu to please anyone and quality ingredients used to prepare their meals. I even ordered their signiture dessert (a piano) expecting it to be more pretty than delicious but I was so wrong. It tasted as good as it looked which was a chocolate piano with mousse, berries, and presented like a masterpiece. Highly recommend this restaurant. The Owners, Staff, and obviously, the Chef take great pride in making your dinner a delightful experience.

“Very good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

We went there, based on reviews of tripadvisor. It's a very nice looking restaurant and GREAT food. Everything about this restaurant is good except for the coffee (but this is in almost every restaurant in the U.S.) and the people who dine here. If you have problem dining with 55+ people don't go here. If you don't mind it's a great place to eat!
