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.

The food was outstanding. Please try the goat cheese mousse appetizer! The salads were lovely, just the right size. I can highly recommend the stuffed trout, the scallops, and the quail. The chef visited our table to check our level of satisfaction. The food, service, and atmosphere all exceeded our expectations! A gourmet foodie meal with a welcoming ambiance. Not snobby or stuffy. Lovely view of the river, too. Go, go now!

Awesome awesome awesome. Great ambiance. Great service and tremendous food!! Had the heirloom tomatoes and mushroom soup and fish speed jetted in from the ocean. And the creme brûlée!! Just great to have this place so close by. I might go again next week!!

Food was wonderful as always, but our server was a bit harried. My brother ordered a dirty martini with olives; he received a regular martini with a twist. When it was mentioned to the waiter, he brought him the same thing again. On the third try, a dirty martini was delivered. My sister-in-law ordered Shiraz; the waiter thought she said 'Chablis' and brought her a Chardonnay that was judged comparable to Chablis.

I found this restaurant while looking at a map of the Little Rock area. I love to dine on the river, so I googled you and liked what I saw. My husband and I enjoyed it so much and we will be back. I have already told several of our friends.

We were seated immediately out on the deck with a great view of the river where we spent the evening watching our everyday worries drift away. For an appetizer we ordered the locally grown Heirloom Tomatoes, which the plate was huge and they went very well with our bottle of 'Kith & Kin' wine. We both enjoyed our dinners, she had the New York Strip while I had the Duck with Duck (yum) .
While we were there it didn't matter which of the Wait Staff past our table, they each would stop to top off a glass and make sure nothing was needed.

A Little Rock staple. The food is always cooked, prepared, and presently perfectly. The fish dishes should not be missed, especially the special of the night. Don't miss the chocolate creme brûlée. It is rich enough (not to mention big enough) to share!

Brave New Restaurant was a "word of mouth" recommendation. I would certainly continue passing recommendations forward. The entire experience from the time we entered until the time we left was SUPERB. I requested a combination of menu items for my main course as I could not decide which to have. The customization was without an issue. My husband stated, "That we would fly back in just to eat and if there was time left over we would see our friends." He was kidding about not seeing our friends. I would hope that they would join us as they enjoy the restaurant as well.
