This delightful, unpretentious bistro is always packed with regulars – one of the greatest accolades for any restaurant. International Ales. Everything about this restaurant is stylish from the plates, to the smooth grooves – even the staff!
While Brava has no pretensions to grandeur, the cooking is assured, the service is slick and the wine selection is one of the best you will find.

The perfect Saturday night dining venue

A fun slightly upsscale smart casual place. Good variety on the menu, thought it's not that extensive. The ambience makes up for everything. A happening place on 17th Ave on a Saturday night. And, if any other night feels like a Saturday to ya, go there then also, cuz it's that good!

Very enjoyable

Went to Brava to celebrate two birthdays at once. Everyone thought their meals were very good or excellent. Service was efficient and friendly. Had a gorgeous Italian red with our meal. Only small complaint was the noise level -- bit hard to hear each other. Wouldn't hesitate to go back and maybe sit outside next time.

Odd situation

Made the reservations by phone, the next day while driving there, we called to get the exact address and we were told hey were closing for a private party. Poor communication between employees - the person took the reservations not knowing of the private party. Too bad - we really wanted to try it
