【閉店】BRAVO Cucina Italiana - Whitehall - Lehigh Valley
Beautiful facility, great service & food. Thanks !!!
We came to celebrate my birthday. Unfortunately, the night was not great. Drinks and bread came out shortly after we ordered, salads followed about 15 minutes later...which by the way are an extra cost $4.50 I believe which is a lot especially considering the portion. Then we sat at waited, and waited, and waited some more for our entrees. The waitress came a couple times to say she could bring more bread because it was going to be a while more. Then the manager came over and brought our kids dough to play with since we needed to continue to pass the time. Then she came over unprompted with a complementary appetizer. Again, nice gesture but our kids were tired and just wanted dinner. Finally our entrees came out. Our Pasta dishes were small, our daughter’s ravioli looked liked the chef forgot to drain it before the marinara sauce was put on and our other daughter got a grilled chicken Caesar salad and the chicken was grizzly. So sad after all that wait. My daughter ate the chicken off my meal so she had something because we were not going to wait longer. All the tables around us were appeased with free dessert as were we. We asked for the check and dessert quickly but unfortunately nope that didn’t happen. This restaurant is just poorly managed. It is so beautiful and it a perfect spot but truly needs help! Our waitress seem very frustrated with the entire situation too as she was probably thinking how it was going to impact her income. We still tipped her despite the experience.
The service was slow. It took 10 minutes to get the waters we requested. The food was tasty. The table had not been wiped down, we were concerned about cleanliness.
Service was good but the kitchen was backed up and it took very long to receive our entree. The manager came around to tables and offered more bread as well as a dessert to share.
We loved the food but waited forever to get our food.
Waited quite a while before server acknowledged us. Filet mignon was very salty. Chicken woozie has chunks of fat
Our first time eating at Bravo. Our waitress was Superb. I wish I could remember her name. Food was outstanding!!!
The service and food were great. Our waiter was very accommodating. He even stopped to chat with us a bit.
Booked an early reservation here after a great experience at the Naples, FL location last week. There were only a small number of tables occupied when we arrived and service started out good through drinks and ordering. Appetizers and salads came out fairly quickly but the waiter seemed to be struggling with a larger table nearby. Other waitstaff did help clear plates, etc. But our entrees did not come out until nearly an hour after we arrived. We saw food sitting under the heat lamp for long periods but couldn't understand the bottleneck with few diners and lots of runners and waitstaff around. Salads were pretty good but the shrimp and lobster pasta dish came out swimming in heavy cream (and overcooked shrimp) after we asked for "light on the sauce" and the sauce is described as "light cream". The exact same dish in FL truly had a light cream sauce and the seafood was much tastier. Overall, while some dishes were good we were rushing at the end to make a show and the food wasn't worth the wait.
great food, nice menu, great service, overall a great experience, would go back
Bravo has always been a good choice in the Lehigh Valley for restaurants. For this visit, not so great. For an entree, 17.99 and above, no sides come with it. Salads are extra. I ordered the eggplant entree and paid for a house salad. The eggplant came with two slices , very thin and an OK amount of pasta, but for the price without a side, I would have expected more eggplant and or pasta. House salad is binded together, when presented it looks like a splat on a plate. Tasty , but not presentable. Our waitress was OK...nothing over expectations. For Italian food, the portions are much larger elsewhere. I'm concerned with Bravo's sustainability, since the competition is offering more for your money. Sorry, I can only give a 3 rating.
Service was a little behind because it was Valentines Day but that didn’t really bother us at all I recommend Bravo to everyone
reservations just mean you wont get turned away not that you'll be seated anytime near your reservation time. Customer service left much to be desired. The food was ill prepared and I adequate portions for the price.
overall not worth the time and wont be returning
First time and probably the last time to visit. Food was overall decent , slightly over priced for what it was but not completely unreasonable.
We were sat and not contacted for at least ten minutes by anyone until the waitress from the neighboring section came and took our drink orders, drinks came and our waitress was still nowhere to be found, waitress from the other section took our food orders. 2 mins later the person who was supposed to be our waitress finally showed up, did not introduce herself and was visibly upset that her coworker had took our food order.
The waitress barely checked on our table for the rest of the time there, never offered or checked on drink refills and never asked how our food was. She genuinely seemed upset that we asked for desert menus and wanted additional drinks.
Based on the service alone I don’t think I’ll ever go back here.
Everything was delicious. I recommend the chicken caprese. The service was great as well.
Service and food were great
My wife and I have been here a few time and one time with our son, who was 2 at the time. The service and food is always great.
Good service, good food and atmosphere!
We ordered Lobster Ravioli and Sausage Tortelloni and both were delicious. I couldn’t stop eating the bread service with the evoo with sundried tomato and basil. Amazing. Chopped salad was good but could be a little better (size and lettuce quality).
We enjoyed our meal very much. We will definitely be back.
Food was average, portions on the smaller side. Server was awesome, very friendly and professional. The manager wasn’t very personable.
My girlfriend and I had date night and we had a great time. She had the pasta wozzie and I had the chicken and spinach pizza. Everything was delicious.
The food was great. My mother in law absolutely loved her food, she is very picky.
Dessert was amazing.
Food took a long time to come out. No sauce at all on the pasta had to order extra which took long to
Come out. Waited for a soda I ordered when we arrived, but did not reduce with other beverages and when it finally came out it was diet not regular. Took a long time to have our rewards deducted from our check. Not a great experience but any means.
I'm ordered shrimp alfredo pasta, and was like Olive Garden menu with small shrimp.
Nearly empty on a Thursday night should have been a sign to turn around. Service was okay. Food not too good. Prices too high. Been here before but not again
The server Christian was great. Hire more people like him.
It was a perfect birthday celebration! Thank you so much!
Great meal after day of skiing. Staff was so attentive and food quite fresh. Full menu offered so many options . We will definitely return.
Wait staff was excellent.
The server was polite and professional. Food was good.
I requested a table on the back room and spoke directly with someone and they confirmed it, when we got there they put us in a corner table near the kitchen with two small children.....not ideal. I told the host when he seated us and he basically blew me off. My food was cold. Waitress was outstanding, that’s about all I can say good. Very disappointing night.
My wife & I had an early New Years Eve dinner at Bravo. This was our first time having a meal at Bravo. The service was outstanding, & the food was amazing. Although we were satisfied, the portions could have been slightly larger. It was an overall pleasant experience. We will most likely return.
Christopher was great and gave wonderful food recommendations. Very tasty food and desserts. Would recommend and also eat there again.
Good food and good service
We brought our family for Christmas Eve dinner, which has been a tradition for the past several years. The food is always amazing, as well as the service. Our waiter Chris was one of the best we have had!! A wonderful time was had by all!
Family outing for holidays
Great service. Fine food and very nice atmosphere. Spaghetti (salt and pepper) was very tasty.
