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!
Great food, experience and especially service
Excellent as always. Felt like they were taking all of the appropriate measures to keep everyone safe. Our server was delightful.
Peter and his team have done an outstanding job providing incredible service as usual and doing it during it with COVID at the forefront of their decision making!
Food was delicious. Service was attentive without being overly so. Price was what you would expect for the quality of food.
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.
Great social distancing, friendly staff, wonderful food as usual.
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.
As always, the food and service was excellent!
Birthday dinner for our daughter; she requested Brave New because it’s always amazing! We were not disappointed this time as our meal was fantastic and the deck at sundown was beautiful.
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.
Excellent as always!
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.
I ordered the Ahi Tuna that they had on special. If I had to chose between that Ahi Tuna or a man, I would happily die alone.
Great service and food was outstanding. Owner even took time to drop by and confirm everything was first class.
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.
Excellent food and service every time. Always enjoy our meals
Food and service was fantastic. Everything prepared to order.
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.
We love this place. We always go there to celebrate our anniversary!
Absolutely beautiful evening on the deck watching the moon rise over the river. As usual outstanding food And wine.
Nice view of the river and great food as well!!!!!
Good spacing /precautions
Great food and service
Brave New is our favorite!!! The goat cheese mousse is delicious. I had ahi tuna steak that was cooked to perfection! Peter’s Coffee with your dessert is a must!
We've been dining here for decades and look forward to more.
The staff, food and experience is always great.
Second visit for us with friends who had never had the chance. Great place with a fantastic meal and we all enjoyed the fantastic service and the food was fabulous. Will definitely be returning again in the near future.
Excellent restaurant with some great views and even better food! Super friendly staff, will definitely be going back!
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The wait staff was friendly. The owner stopped by our table twice. We were able to enjoy a nice meal, wine, and dessert in a very quaint environment. I will definitely return and recommend to others.
Excellent experience all around. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return.
Brave New Restaurant is usually my first choice for eating out. The food is always delicious and the service is always impeccable. I can always count on the consistency of both.
We love Brave New! We were hoping to set out on the back deck, but tables were comfortably spaced far apart inside. We thought the Covid precautions were managed very well!
We had a wonderful experience at Brave New Restaurant celebrating my sister’s 50th birthday!
Thank you Hugh for taking amazing care of us! We will definitely be back!
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.
It was delicious as ever. Peter Brave and his staff are very friendly and professional.
We love it. Especially when Peter comes out and chats with us. One of our best evenings out. Oh yea, the food is awesome.
Local fish paired nicely with roasted potatoes and vegetables. Mushroom soup was excellent and salads were very good . Overall a great experience.
Great place for our anniversary dinner! Loved eating outside on the deck.
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!!!
