I went to this restaurant now called Bravo (formerly it was Encore) for National Lasagna Day because my wife loves lasagna and wanted to surprise her. The service was very good, but the food was OK. My 10 yr old daughter, who tried our lasagna and had a kid's meal said it best "They shouldn't call this place Bravo, they... More

I had lunch at the North Lake Mall location today and had one of the lunch specials being offered at $7.95. The Broiled Tilapia with Orzo Salad was outstanding! A very flavorful, delicate, moist fish served on perfectly seasoned orzo and for a very reasonable price. This was my first visit to Bravo - Charlotte - North Lake location although... More

We have been to bravo on many occasions and absolute love it. Bravo is affiliated with the more widely known BRIO restaurants found in bigger cities such as Atlanta and Birmingham. The pasta's are all wonderful. We always order calamari and end up eating so much of the bread, that we have to take leftover's home. The staff is very... More
