Stopped in as a family for lunch before a Prov College day game on Saturday. Restaurant was empty due to upcoming snow storm. Despite that, our service was fair at best. Please note that there is NO kids menu, but they do accommodate children, so one had pancakes (no choc chips though) & one had chicken fingers (which were surprisingly... More

We really enjoyed the food and ambiance at Bravo. Staff was very friendly and even held our leftovers for pickup after the show. It was a bit loud at times which made it tough for the older people we were with to hear but everyone still had a great time. After dinner we walked literally across the street and were... More

We have been coming to the Bravo Brasserie for many years and have never been disappointed. They have a great location if you are going to a play or sporting event. Plus they offer valet parking. The menu has something for everyone. From nice salads ,sandwiches or entree. This time we had the mussels which were outstanding. And a tenderloin... More

The Monday 2 for 1 special is a good price. Includes a so-so bottle of wine and the limited but ok entree options. Off the bar menu any night is a very good burger. Good place to chat up people at the bar and have fun. Friendly staff. Regular patrons. Convenient for nights attending the theater. Across from Trinity and... More

We were on foot and had Rep Theatre tickets, and since it was raining, we chose Bravo for it's location. And so, I guess we got what we deserved. We shared a spinach salad with poppy seed dressing. One of the worst poppy seed dressings that I have ever had. The most memorable thing about the salad was the candied... More

I was thrilled to get poached eggs exactly as ordered--SOFT! We ordered the Crab Benedict and Salmon Benedict (each $13) and shared then. My Bravo Bloody Mary ($9) had a bit more "stuff" in it. I asked for Spicy, but it had a more of the "mix" than I like, but my fault--I could have asked for a taste first!... More

Good food, good atmosphere and within walking distance of Dunkin Center. Perfect for pre or post event. Waitress was very nice. I made a reservation, but traffic was making us late, but they just easily moved our reservation time. Very accomodating.

We have been here twice within a 6 month period. The first was for dinner and the second was drinks after the theatre. The staff and bartender attitude was that they did not want you there. Very rude, was too much effort to help you, Until it came time for the bill then they were thank you come again. Very... More

Was expecting more from this restaurant after reading the reviews but only it rates "okay" with the cuisine in my book. Salad was basic and not particularly special as it name denoted. Entree was mediocre at best. I didn't fine a lot of French influence in the food at all but French-American is what they tout. It has a decent... More

Our waitress was super friendly and efficient (Christine / Christina, I believe). Orders were taken and food delivered in good time and exactly as ordered. For what it is (i.e. not trying to be haute cuisine) the food is of a good standard with generous portions. The fries were amazing and the French onion soup one of the best /... More
