Celebrated our son's 15th birthday - could not have been better! We sat outside on the deck - it was beautiful - both the river and the downtown skyline. The food and our server were fabulous! Mid-way through dinner it started to sprinkle and the awning quickly came out. We continued to enjoy our dinner and watch it lightly rain on the river. Every second exceeded our expectations - Thank you, Peter Brave and your professional crew!

The sunset was beautiful while eating the excellent Walleye special for my main entree and Brie as our appetizer. My husband had the pecan encrusted trout which was also delicious! The service was impeccable and the Wine was perfect with the gorgeous surroundings. We felt very safe as we enjoyed a beautiful outdoor dining experience. The staff followed all health regulations and were friendly and attentive. Overall, it was an amazing evening out which really matters when they are so few and far between during the pandemic.

The Oysters Bienville appetizer was awesome. I should have gotten a dozen and made that my dinner. The veal roulade was my dinner entree and it was exceptional.

Loved it. Had a patio table and food was fabulous. Peter Brave came to our table personally to thank us for our patronage during this turbulent time. Only negative was server. He rushed our order and seemed more interested in drink order than food. We had to tell him when he brought the bread that he rushed away without asking about an appetizer or soup. His comment was "you didn't tell me." He should have asked when we said we were ready to order. After that he was better at attending to us. Will definitely go back and recommended.

Some of the side items were a bit too exotic for us. Noise level was great except they sat a baby right next to us. It was a happy baby, but still a bit loud. Otherwise, would definitely recommend.

Came to Little Rock on way to Ozarks and decided to try NBR. Menu was varied, food was outstanding, indoor seating area in restaurant was very nice, and waitress was helpful and pleasant. There were appropriate steps for COVID-19.

Dinner with a former coworker. My recommendation was New Brave Restaurant. We were not disappointed! The seared ahi tuna melted in our mouths! Best I’ve ever had and I’ve had it in numerous restaurants around the country.

Food was excellent. We did request outdoor dining via Open Table but were told that outdoor was first come first served. We weren’t given the option to wait for outdoor dining even though tables became available within five minutes of being seated.

Cocktails were amazing - among the best we’ve had.

Bread appetizer was hit or miss. The first one was five star. The second was very hard and difficult to eat without tearing up the roof of your mouth.

The main course was excellent. We got a beef filet and veal. Both amazing! We were stuffed so didn’t try the desserts but others around us who got them looked great.

The best restaurant in Little Rock. Peter Brave is fabulous! Make sure you try the coffee and purchase a bag of fresh roasted beans. The Thai Snapper is the best I’ve ever eaten. You will joy be disappointed.

Absolutely delicious and fresh. Chef Peter Brave visited our table on several occasions. His pride in his dishes was evident in the conversations we had in regard to our chosen dishes. The ribeye special was beautifully aged and cooked to perfection. I had the scallops and the capers in the sauce were roasted and slightly crunchy. Wonderful. Our friends had the pork loin and the salmon. I am a huge fan of sauces and each one of our dishes featured one of the restaurants many sauces. Definitely try the chocolate creme brulee. I know it is the signature dessert and often times this drives people to try something different, but don't! Treat your palette to all that is good! We will definitely be returning.

Food is always wonderful. Heirloom tomatoes along with cheese is an incredible appetizer. Peter Brave is the most amazing chef in all of Little Rock. Ricardo was our waiter for the evening and did a remarkable job. He kept our glasses full and attended to every need. Highly recommend this restaurant. Best in Little Rock!!!
