This is the coziest place in town. They serve a wide variety of drinks including tap and bottled beer as well as wide selection of wines. Very pleasant Spanish music and warm atmosphere. On the menu they have mostly tapas which are small portions,so don't expect that you overeat there. This is not a place to eat anyway. This is... More

Brava never fails us. The concept is that it is a wine bar with tapas. The small plates can serve as bar food or dinners. Everything is always good. The papayas bravas are spicy, the bruschettas are tasty, the wine list is great, and the brick-oven pizza is smoky and delicious. I do think they could freshen up the menu... More

Worth the stop. Sit at the bar and get ready to meet people and eat some good food as well as drink! Bartenders recommendations were fantastic.

As a local I've been past Brava many times, so we decided to try it out for dinner. It's small but cosy. Service was friendly and responsive. Large selection of beers and wines, obviously priced for tourists, not locals. $12 for s drink seemed a bit much. We've been to many tapas places, so the small plates was not new... More

Just wonderful. We thought we had been transported back to France or Italy for the evening. Great wine, food and service as well as atmosphere.

Came here after a day of skiing and had a delicious meal. The staff was friendly and helpful and made great menu recommendations. The Boom Boom Shrimp is terrific! I would definitely eat here again! They were a bit busy so if reservations are allowed I would recommend getting one. We only had to wait about 15 minutes though.

The restaraunt is tiny, with enough space to maybe serve ~26 people at one time. That includes one row of tables, several seats at the bar, and another two seats by a window. They do not take reservations - first come, first serve. Now, what makes this place worth a visit? First and foremost, it's the service. Most restaurants these... More

Absolutely love this place! The meatballs are amazing. So tender. Throw them on a pizza, even better. The spice chick peas are like Pringle's, once you pop you can't stop. All sorts of great treats on the menu. But hose are my faves, along with the kale salad. Great beer and wine selection. Great atmosphere. Come in and warm up... More

Cozy place with wonderful food, primarily small plates, but big ones too. They are very picky what they serve, so whether in a mood for wine, beer, or craft cocktails, you'll be happy. Friendly staff make Brava a welcoming place to go. Enjoy!
