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.

Nice location. Nice ambience. Nice tables. If you are looking for a great way to spend a Saturday evening dinner, this is the place. The menu could be fortified a bit, but the choices are still good. Ditto for the wine list.
the martini drink list is really inspiring here, it's a wonderful experience. i have come here for drinks with the girls after work and it's always a fun way to end a day.

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.

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
