    The scallops are always delicious. And the dessert, a chocolate mousse cake was big enough for two. Fabulous

    Brave New Restaurant is simply the best dining experience you could want. Every aspect of the night was flawless. It’s rather pricey but for a special occasion it is worth it. Peter Brave has perfected the dining experience and the food is unmatched anywhere we have been in the US.

    This is my favorite restaurant. The view of the Arkansas River is beautiful. It was too hot to sit on the deck but the floor to ceiling windows provide a great view. The servers are knowledgeable and professional. The food was perfectly prepared and very tasty. The Walleye special was great. The Chocolate Creme Brulee is a must have.

    We had the ahi tuna and scallops, both were amazing. Great river view. The only thing was the staff was all dressed very casually (jeans) and not uniforms. I know that didn’t affect my ding experience but it would have been a bit more professional:

    BNR would be a top restaurant in any city in the country, including NYC! The food is excellent and creative without being offensively trendy. No little spoons of smoked foam here. Ingredients are fresh and high quality( portions are generous all of which justifies the cost. Service is excellent without being overbearing. The one flaw was the lobster risotto was served Lukewarm not piping hot as it should be. Homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream was the perfect dessert.

    Delicious food, great cocktails and service. Patio dining was delightful despite hot humid July evening. Light breezes and river view made it a perfect evening. Our only disappointments were that there were no tomatoes available or Rosè wine on their wine list.
