The menu is a little bit of everything. It's not quite a typical French restaurant, like one would imagine...which is fine for me. We had fresh shrimp and oysters for an appetizer (the mignonette for the oysters was outstanding). The sesame tuna I had for my entree was wonderful as well. Very rare and very flavorful. The special that night... More

Good touches of vintage and new decor. We were a pre-theatre crowd and our server was reassuringly attentive. He also recommended a favored mixed drink that pleased several. Nice touch of a small baguette served warm inside a brown paper bag. Generous quantity of whipped butter that melted nicely. My beet salad with shrimps was a good follow to the... More

Prior to attending the theater, we had lunch. We didn't have a reservation but were welcomed. The service was immediate and excellent. We each had bloody mary's, onion soup, and shared the lobster sandwich. Delicious choices on our part. Tea and a caramel cake topped off our lunch. Perfect timing. Pefect lunch!

My wife and I went to Bravo for Restaurant Week. However, we went on a Monday and found that on that day Bravo didn't really have a special for Restaurant Week but instead offered the special it offers every Monday. What we discovered, however, was that the ordinary Monday special was better than the Restaurant Week special, at least for... More

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

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
