Brave New Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We met up with some friends that were coming in from out of town, and needed to a good place for dinner- Aka, somewhere that is impressive without being stuck up.
Brave New Restaurant is just that. Knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff- the timing of food delivery was spot on, and most importantly, the meal was delicious. Our second time there has now confirmed it's place as one of our favorite restaurants to go to when we get the chance to eat out.

We had an 8:45p reservation and were finally seated at almost 9:30p. Our waiter was attentive, but our meals were barely warm when served, and hardly seasoned. Oddly, the knives that were brought to the table were of such poor quality (cheaply made - they actually bent when using them) that they seemed out of place. We heard another patron ask for his waiter to bring a "more aggressive" knife. Nevertheless, we had a good time and were so impressed with their custom of bringing children a fruit and cheese plate immediately after being seated that much else was forgiven.

We spent over $90.00 for two people on a meal. The food was delicious, but we were completely rushed out the door. For that kind of money, you would hope to stay and savor the evening. We were pushed out as quickly as possible. The first time we went, we did not have that experience. It was a well paced, enjoyable meal. The food was really delicious both times I must say!

Excellent, we dined at Brave New for New Years and as busy as this place was I expected slow mediocre food but wow did they have their stuff together. Food came out right on time, quality was excellent I especially enjoyed the venison sausage and my wife said the walleye was delicious. Way to go staff of Brave New excellent job at treating my wife and I to a fantastic dinner.

This place was amazing! Every single item that all 6 of us ordered was absolutely delicious! From the mushroom appetizer, filet mignon salad with fruit and wonderful cheese chunks, to the soups, (we had all 3 that were available), to the scallops and salmon. Oh and yes, the chocolate crème brule! The Chef, Mr Brave himself, came to our table to introduce himself for that extra special touch. Every person working that night made my mother's 84 year old birthday a memorable one....

This is a special place for a superior meal. A family member has a medical reason for avoiding a certain item and the chef and team are very accommodating and creative with alternative prep options. The service is exceptional and the overall experience more than makes up for the parking issues and somewhat inconvenient location. Chef Peter Brave and his team are unparalleled in Little Rock.

Was wonderful as always!!!! We arrived a bit early for a cocktail at the bar, and reviewed the specials listed.
We walked outside on the balcony to view the Christmas lights downtown. They had several heaters outside; so it wasn't too cold. They had our table ready on time (as always) and we had a great time!

Unfortunate experience. Table near us: child was eating spaghetti off the floor. Not the experience we were hoping for. Portions were too large. Unexpected location in an office building - not the ambiance we had hoped for. Despite these things, service was about the only thing that was exceptional.

Everything was wonderful. The restaurant is located on the second level of an office building so look up. The outdoor seating affords a great view to complete the whole experience. The dinner salad was huge so no need to get any appetizers.

I ordered the duck. My husband ordered the mixed grill. Everything was delicious. I felt the duck was a little undercooked. I ate it but I have certainly had better. My husband actually could not stand it, so I suppose it is a matter of taste. We had the wild mushroom tart as an appetizer and I would highly recommend it. It was extremely delicious.

I had the walleye and it was very good! The zucchini served with it was not good - hard as a rock. The drinks were great and the service was excellent. I think the prices have gotten a little high, but just my opinion.

Wonderful restaurant with great food, good menu options. Owner and staff are always just the right amount of friendly and helpful. Beautiful setting on AR river. Best outdoor patio, with views of river and downtown in tranquil setting. Owner/chef does it just right!

Ventured (for the 1st time) into Brave New Restaurant for a girl's night. The service, ambience, food was all top notch. If you want a five star meal with five star service you CANNOT beat Brave New. We will DEFINITELY be back.

Food was very good. My wife had the salmon and I had the mixed grill entree. Loved everything, but the stuffed quail. I am very particular about how it should taste, so it was probably more of a preference thing for me. Our service was less than ideal this particular evening because of the wedding reception they were also hosting, but on other nights it has been fantastic service.

Fabulous, as always! Peter Brave NEVER disappoints! Amazing, quality food and quiet, intimate atmosphere. The outside dining area overlooks the Arkansas River. Can't think of anything that would improve on this place!!

Friendly welcoming staff, including the owner/chef. Beautiful outdoor seating overlooking the Arkansas River. Service was caring, prompt, attentive, communicative. Prompt but not hurried. Food is excellent with easy menu- not overwhelming. Specials regularly change. Taste is superlative. A monthly stop for my wife and me. Mid-range pricing.

We were checking out the restaurant, before we brought our friends to eat there. We are new to the state of Arkansas, so had no idea there to bring our special friends from out of state. We sat outside on the deck for lunch and loved every minute of it. We will be back.
