Are all the reviews of this restaurant made by the staff -- to increase the ratings? Wow. Amazing.
I can't believe everyone has had such good experiences at Bravo!. Having not lived in Pittsburgh for several years, I was excited to return and head back to Bravo! -- the food of which I generally enjoy.
However, the service is horrible! Being out on a special occasion, I had ordered a bottle of Moet Champagne, at $85 menu price (i.e., $45 in the state liquor stores) and was told by the server, ""Sorry - we don't have any more champagne flutes, we only have white wine glasses.""
My response was, ""You've GOT to be kidding, right?"" We spoke to a manager who offered no assistance, as well. For and $85 bottle of champagne -- head out to Target and pick up some before you serve the wine, you goof!
There were sooo many poor serving experiences (poor timing, not checking back in an appropriate time, incorrectly staggered courses/ progression of order)... I can only wonder: ""Are the servers and staff writing all the reviews, here.... or are people in Pittsburgh seriously 'okay' being underwhelmed and have no idea what to expect from good, let alone 'great' service!""
Having been a server before (and a pretty good one, at that!), I know what to look for in the way of service standards... and I'm always -- ALWAYS -- left unimpressed with Bravo!
Don't even think about trying the Bravo on McKnight road, North Hills, Pittsburgh -- It's exactly the same.
Other than the food -- I'd never consider going back. Save the extra money and head to Olive Garden or a local, family owned Italian restaurant.... you'll be happy that you did!
