Brave New Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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.

The food was outstanding. We had the mushroom tart for appetizer and scallops for meal. The mushroom tart had the most buttery/flaky crust and the mushrooms were tender and flavorful. The scallops were the best I've ever had!

Noticed Brave New Restaurant was rated number one in central Arkansas and had to give it a try! Let me tell you it was the best dining experience and the food is phenomenally out of this world! It was perfect for a late night dinner with a date!

Food and service was great and lots of awards. However the experience of feeling like I'm in an office was bad. They have opportunity to make the atmosphere better from the elevator entrance to the exit. They could and should do much better. That food belongs in a superior restaurant. Be brave! Invest.

As a highly rated restaurant in Little Rock, we had our expectations set too high, and the dinner didn't meet those expectations. My wife and I would consider ourselves "foodies", and although we would return to Brave New in the future, we would make it back to several other local restaurants before we did so.

There are so many places to eat in the USA that are good with most serving tried and true fare whether a great steakhouse or Waffle House. Very few are inventive dining experiences. Locally sourced fruits n veggies utilized for deliciousness not because it's trendy. Fresh seafood flown in from everywhere. Super Relaxed atmosphere. The best wait staff.

Absolutely wonderful restaurant. Everything my wife and I ordered was delicious and the view is absolutely spectacular, overlooking the Arkansas river. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes at very reasonable prices considering the quality of the food. The chef, Peter Brave, uses locally sourced ingredients and the taste of the food reflects it. Service was also very good.
We were visiting Little Rock; this will certainly become our go-to restaurant the next time we are in the area.
