Brave New Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
It felt like we were eating dinner in a footpath. We literally had people leaning against our chairs and table as they were waiting for their table! When we complained to the manager he treated us very disrespectfully. Two courses were brought to us with food items we told the waiter we could not eat. After we pointed this out to him he told us to just avoid eating them and made no offer to replate! Dirty dishes were not cleared. The scallops were not properly cleaned and still contained bits of sand and grit. I know we were there on a busy night but this service was inexcusable.
I had the best salmon I think I've ever had followed by excellent cheesecake it was chocolate chip. The meal was served with red cabbage and red potatoes and it was delicious. The wife had pork tenderloin and it melted in her mouth. Lindsay was a great server!!!
Even thought we are a blue collar working class family that can afford to eat at a place like this. I will admit that we kinda felt a little out of place by some of the patrons there. That will not prevent me from going again because I don't care what people think and the food was amazing. Keep up the good work from the servers to the food. Loved the whole experience.
Disappointing. A dog was in the dining room for about 30 seconds, I know that's not long... but still not appropriate for a restaurant claiming to be "casual fine dining".( I also love dogs, I have 3.... but this is a restaurant). Chef came by asking about our food and I politely said it was too cool for my tastes and he said it was chef's preference.
I understand chef's preferences for temperatures, but cool food tagged with $140 bill is not okay.
I also had a reservation and we were put in overflow seating next to a large business group.
Service was great and fast, but all in all the food and ambience was severely disappointing.
The food and the service was excellent. Our server explained all of the specials and was able to answer all of our questions about menu items. I had the Salmon which was the best I have had, it was perfect.
Only reason why I gave 4 stars on value was the price, but given the food and service I will still come back.
One of Little Rock's very best dining options—the specials are always wonderful; we had scallops and tuna, both top-drawer, as good as it gets. Vegetables always interesting and well prepared. A chocolate creme brulee among the best I've ever had. The service was perfect and despite a full house on one of the busiest nights of the year (New Year's Eve), we again had a memorable experience.
We have been to Brave New several times, but this was our worst experience. My wife and I couldn’t hear each other at our table due to being seated right next to the hostess desk. People waiting for tables were literally bumping my chair as they were waiting to be seated. The food was good as usual, but our overall experience was poor due to the noise and seating.
We went to dinner on New Years Eve and everything was perfect. One of the daily specials was walleye, which I haven't had in YEARS. It was so delicious, melt-in-your-mouth tender and served with roasted potatoes and half a grilled tiny zucchini. Just perfect! Wish I had taken a picture....but it looked and smelled so enticing, I just ate!
Ben was our waiter and was excellent at explaining tHe menu choices and also gave us time to decide. He checked back often enough to make sure we had what we needed and that we were pleased with the food. Overall it was a great experience and the food was beautiful and tasted great.
We love this restaurant. The food is always delicious no matter what we order. There is a good variety of foods to choose from. Service is always excellent. There aren't many nice restaurants where the owner/chef usually visits your table to make sure everything is satisfactory.
