“Poor value, terrible service, wacky ambience, mediocre food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Went to Bratta's on a Monday evening for a business dinner. It is straight out of 1956. Loud music, elderly clientele, truly awful service and C- food. Our waiter Bryan was over the top but invisible for most of the meal. Tried a chicken, Italian and a seafood entree. Nothing exceptional for the premium price. The Seafood Penne was mostly pasta in a poorly spice sauce; only a few shrimp and a very few pieces of scallops. Who refrigerates Cabernet Sauvignon? The Crete brûlée dessert was unexceptional but the chocolate piano dessert was unusual; I nice mousse filling would have been much better that the overly sweet whipped cream. Bottom line: won't go back and certainly can't recommend. You would be better off in one of the nearby chain restaurants. Too bad.

LOL! We have really gotten a kick out of your review. It was extremely wacky, comical, and on the strange side.

“Great service, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We chose this restaurant based on other reviews from Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed, Our waiter, Frank, was most attentive and knowledge. He made excellent recommendations on both wine and dinner menu items. The evening we were there, one of the dinner specials was salmon with blueberry sauce, tomato basil risotto, and asparagus. It was wonderful. Choosing from the dessert tray was difficult, but we decided on the chocolate cake, which was large enough for 4. Live music was a plus, and we were given the choice of sitting near the music or in an adjacent room so we could converse. We will definitely dine there again.

“Food... only outdone by the service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a delicious meal at Bratta's this evening. We are considered one of their VIP customers because we gave them our email address awhile ago. Well, besides wonderful discounts, the food is delicious (I had the Lasagna) but our server tonight, Savannah, was truly outstanding. She made sure that our meal was prepared exactly how we wanted. I like my Lasagna a little crispy and Savannah came through like a champ. I will be sure to ask for her again and again when I go back - which will be often... Add this restaurant to your list of favorites! (and ask for Savannah). Bon Appetite to all - Patch

Saw the rating on tripadvisor and as I was staying nearby checked it out. When you first pull into the parking lot you hear the music which really pulls you in. While we were eating people were dancing and that always warms my heart :). Food was very good ... Great atmosphere.
