Celebrated a friend's birthday last weekend. My first time at this location and I was surprised that it wasn't packed on a Saturday night. Might have something to do with the OSU game coming on at 8. The Gluten Free menu was short but very good and we were taken aback that the portions were so large. This was great... More

This places wins the award for the longest time to get water or service of any kind. We waited almost 10 minutes after we had been seated to get water. They were not busy. It was another 10 minutes before anyone came for an order. They were still not busy. Once we had food, the pork chop was so salty... More

Accompanied by family it was good experience. Grilled salmon was especially very nice. Although many starters including spinach dip with Italian bread were simply superb.

Came for Father's Day because of the convenient location and that they had open tables available. This Bravo, has a very nice patio if you like to eat outside. Inside, the AC was cranked up, so it was a bit frigid, but it was 90 F during the daytime. I had the lamb chops in a marsala sauce. Like most... More

Let me begin by saying that we have been going to Bravo (and specifically, this location) for now over **27** years, right from the time it opened. It pains me to say that our latest dining experience was not the greatest. The fried zucchini and eggplant was hot and soft, not crisp, it had an odd mayo sauce with it,... More

My niece was in town for a visit. I wanted to take her to a nice place and one where we could visit and accommodate my 94 year old mother. Our meals were excellent and we really enjoyed ourselves. This location is particularly nice and is unique. We always recommend Bravo.

Our group of eight (four adults and four kids under 9) called ahead to get a table on a Friday, early evening. The table was ready when we arrived, a big plus! The kids received a menu with an activity page on its reverse and crayons. Our server was good with the older kids and took their orders directly from... More
