Bravo has a lovely dining room. The tables are nicely set and well spaced so you can have a private conversation. The candles add a lovely ambiance to the room.
We have dined at Bravo on numerous occasions. This weekends dinner was somewhat disappointing compared to other experiences. The service was just a good as usual but I found some of the food somewhat disappointing. The bread that they served with dinner was not very interesting at all. I remember the bread being considerably better on previous visits. This weekend it was just like plain white and whole wheat bread that you buy at the store, not even a good quality bread. We started off with the chipotle mussels and they are amazing. We seem to always gravitate to this appetizer. It is nice and spicy and the sauce is fantastic. Too bad the bread wasn’t better. They were $14.00. For entrees my husband had the pork tenderloin and he just raved about it. I ordered the wild salmon with crab mash and lobster sauce. It sounds very good. I think I’ve had this dish before and I’ve found it to be very good. This last visit there was just not much flavour to the dish. It tasted like just regular mashed potatoes and the lobster sauce had no taste of lobster to it whatsoever. Hubby tried my dinner and his comment as well was that it was very bland. He was glad he ordered what he did. For dessert we shared a crème brulee. It was probably one of the most disappointing crème brulees that I’ve had. It was very heavy on the flour and had the texture more of a pudding cake than a crème brulee. There was also not much of a vanilla flavour to it. The prices here are very reasonable. Appetizers range in price from $11.00 - $19.00 and entrees range from $19.00 - $31.00.
We asked what the corkage fee on BYOW was going to be and we were told $19.95 for the first bottle and then you negotiate with the owner. I overheard them talking about bringing in some more reasonable wines for their wine list.
I would go back based on previous dining experiences that I’ve had here. I hope this weekends experience was just an off night for them.
Went here for a birthday party - first time for most of us. We were seated in a quiet area which was nice. Not fancy but a nice ambiance. Waiter was a bit harried but he was on his own with a large group, so I'd say he did his best. We started with the Classic Caesar with lemon parmesan croutons; it was alright but not the best I've ever had, the lettuce was not dried enough so it was wet and the dressing didn't stick to it well.
IFor an entee I had the Wild Salmon on Crab potato mash & Lobster sauce, the salmon was cooked to perfection, I could have had a bit more potatoes and more veggies would have been nice - just served 2 asparagus spears. I did not like that the meal was served in a bowl, it was awkward to eat it properly.
My daughter had the Penne with Chicken in a fresh basil pesto and said it was very tasty. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals. I'd say a bit pricey for the size of the meal, but well prepared.
Didn't have any desserts - we had a birthday cake.
I'd like to come back with just a couple of friends and try some of the other menu items.
Since moving to Chilliwack in the spring, we have tried many restaurants and Bravo has exceeded every other in the City. Definitely my first choice in dining out. It is hidden in a less than desirable area of town, but you immediately know you have found something unique when you walk through the door. The service was pleasant and the food tasted as good as it was plated. A favorite in the Valley.
