Had dinner here on a Tuesday evening around 8 pm. We were seated quickly. The waiter was friendly and helpful. The food was good but not at a caliber for the price. I had lasagna for $20 and a glass of their cheapest red, blend...More

This is by far the best brunch in the area.. Many “breakfast options”, carved roast beef and ham. Chicken. Extensive choices in side dishes. Many beautiful desserts that tast as good as they look.

Our family go to place for holidays, parties and a fantastic meal. It’s like home to us. Nicest bridal shower we hosted there.

A great spread of food from salads through desserts. Maybe more of a lunch buffet than a "brunch" buffet. No poached or scrambled eggs, but made to order eggs and omelets were popular. Lots of meat choices and sides. A little light on breads and...More

Bravo is our favorite Italian restaurant in the Kalamazoo area. It is reliably good and the best of the few upscale Italian. The Caesar salad (yes to anchovies!) is excellent as are the thin crust pizzas. On Thursday nights, pizzas, pastas, and pints are half-price...More
