Brave New Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I have loved this place since my first trip. This past Thursday was our 15th Anniversary, and we did not say it to the staff, never need to, they make every meal special. The food was excellent, we had an appetizer, dinner, coffee and desert we really enjoyed the outside seating with a great sunset of Little Rock in the background.
It was our 9th anniversary. The atmosphere was exactly what we wanted! The appetizer came and really set us up for something special, it’s to bad the rest of the meal was just lacking. Plates have ample quantity and we left full but definitely not feeling like we got a meal worthy of $100 for 2. The dinner salads looked wilted and we only ate a bite each and let them go back. Both plates came and were very bland and nothing spectacular. The dessert was good but it’s hard to mess up cheesecake.
We had a wonderful time, excellent waitress, tasty good food and warm bread, not too loud, we will return with other friends. The variety of the menu was good, prices were fine too. Parking was close, elevator took awhile but worked ok. Open Table worked for making the reservation. Thanks.
Brave New Restaurant is fabulous. We asked for and were seated on the deck on this past visit, and we enjoyed an awesome view of the Little Rock skyline at twilight. Our meals were cooked to perfection and presented well. The large Sea Scallops were better than candy! Brave New Restaurant is a jewel on the Arkansas river in the Rebsamen area of Little Rock. Highly recommend, particularly at sunset!
Brave New Restaurant has great menu options. I've eaten there for a business lunch during the week and also a birthday dinner date on the weekend. Perfect for both occasions! The local and seasonal food was perfect and we had great service!!
We ordered the grilled romaine salad which was delicious. Romaine was not to oily and salad was filled w several delicious cheeses, grapes, chicken, roasted veggies and more. The dressing was light and did not overwhelm the ingredients. The bread was delicious.
We had a delicious dinner at Brave New Restaurant. We started out with martinis on the patio followed by dinner. My husband had the onion soup as a start and I had a goat cheese mousse. The mousse was easily enough for four. He had the house salad and I skipped my included salad. My husband ordered Pork Tenderloin and I had Walleye. Both were amazing. It was a wonderful meal. The desserts looked fantastic but we couldn't go there.
Had not been in many month and was NOT disappointed. Our group each had a different menu items and each of us were very pleased with our meals. Ask for the "specials" both for food and beer since they had both during our visit. We enjoyed a local micro brew that was not on the menu so it's worth it to ask.
Wait for outdoor table is about 30 minutes so make sure you're prepared to wait if you want to eat outside.
I recommend this restaurant, very good food.
It has been about ten years since I've eaten dinner at Brave New, so my husband and I decided to dine here for our anniversary. We started with the goat cheese mousse appetizer, which was very solid. We each opted for the Caesar salad (a salad selection comes with an entrée) for our salad. Unfortunately, the salad was soggy and brownish. I feel like maybe they made them earlier in the day and put them in the refrigerator. I had the halibut special for dinner, and it was good but not great. The sides were definitely lacking that night with carrots, one small potato and a small overcooked zucchini. My husband had the meat plate, and his beef was cooked more to well done than the medium he requested. The standout, in both of our minds, was the chocolate crème brulee.
We were disappointed in our meal given what we paid. Our server was great and we had an amazing patio seat. We were seated when the restaurant was maybe a quarter full but still had to wait a good bit of time on our main entrees (in total our meal was two hours). I will definitely come back for lunch but will think twice about dinner.
Creative menu items cooked to perfection. Used to getting the Walleye but didn't have it in Fri night. Waitress was very cute and nice but disappeared for several long stretches.... especially at dessert/coffee time near the tail end of our dining experience --- this was especially awkward because the place was clearing out after a 2 hour meal. My client and his wife usually order a dessert so I was a little disappinted but no big deal that they didn't . All in all it was a great 👍🏻 time.
