This is my in-law’s favorite restaurant, so I booked a table for our recent visit. We were all sorely disappointed by the presentation, quality and atmosphere.
We had asked for a window table inside but none were available even at our early (5:30) reservation so we opted for outside. The deck, while beautiful, was quite warm and the fans intended to keep things cool were marginal.
The sourdough bread and butter service and the crab cake appetizer were delicious but we should have stopped there…the Onion soup was just good but Mushroom soup desperately needed salt, which is not provided tableside. I ordered the filet and quinoa salad and while the filet was cooked to perfection, I had to ask for the dressing as it came undressed. Even with the dressing, it was fairly bland.
My in-laws remarked that the food presentation is not what it used to be.
Service was okay, the waitress seemed to have too many tables but was gracious with our requests.
For the high price point of the entrees, I would not recommend this restaurant. I expect more when paying $37 for a salad…
We celebrated my husband’s birthday. Brave New is our favorite restaurant in Little Rock. Food is fabulous! Peter Brave is an outstanding chef.
Our favorite seasonal appetizer was on the menu…The Heirloom Tomatoes with burratta cheese and fresh corn relish!
Great service, ambiance and food. Pricey but worth it. The scallops, tuna and the walleye were all excellent.
Wonderful food and wonderful view!
Steak was over cooked but delicious.
Think it may have been a miscommunication with server.
Great special selection and good food. Already been there twice in fast two months. Would go again when back in are.
A delightful dinner with excellent food and service. Our first venture out since the Pandemic started and we were not disappointed. Thanks to all for a lovely evening.
The manager is not kid friendly at all. He was completely agitated with my daughter because she wanted a high chair for her baby doll. Then he goes as far as to talk about us not realizing we could hear everything that was said. She is 3 and not disrupting anything or screaming nothing. Then we waited an hour and 15 minutes for the food which looked very good but no seasoning and no taste. Hopefully it was just an off night but for us we will never be back.
Delicious food!!! Beautiful restaurant overlooking the Arkansas river.
Exceptional restaurant with fantastic food and wine.
Excellent food - good choice when you want a nice meal. It will be $200 a couple with wine, so not an everyday place for us. Server was dressed in jeans which detracted from the upscale atmosphere. If people are paying $40 an entree the staff should reflect that price. All the patrons were appropriately dressed. Overall a nice experience though.
One of the best meals that we have had in a long time. Highly recommend.
Love this place!
The food was extremely good. I had a shrimp stuffed avocado for my appetizer that was amazing. The mushroom soup was to die for. All entrees were wonderful!! We had halibut, really flaky. The Wa-Hoo, also delish and a mushroom Wellington, very different, but so yummy!!!!!
Best restaurant in Town....food was outstanding as always! Never know what to select!
Excellent food as usual. This fish is always consistently excellent. The pork loin and strip steak were cooked to perfection.
This was my first lunch out since Covid and it was a wonderful experience on every level. I highly recommend Brave New to one and all.
We had an excellent dining experience! We weren’t in a hurry and Ben our waiter, allowed us time between courses even holding off submitting a request for the main course until we were ready. His attention and care was excellent. Quality of food was excellent as always and beautifully served. I needed to box leftovers and he gave me the option to box myself or he do it in case I had concerns because of COVID. Super impressed with the waiter. And to top it all we had a table by the window and could look out at the River and bird feeders. It was wonderful. Will repeat! Thank you Brave New!
I have not been to Brave New in many years, but the food not service has changed. Fabulous walleye!! Wish I lived nearby
Great meal with fantastic service. We had scallops and the tenderloin.
Our first time here and overall very good. We celebrated our anniversary and dressed accordingly. Parking was limited. Food was excellent and staff was very nice and knowledgeable. Getting to this place was difficult at best. Wish they had a dress code of at least collared shirt for men and no beach wear. A restaurant of this caliber could demand it.
Whether it’s a special occasion or Just a night for a good dinner, Peter Brave’s restaurant never disappoints
Can’t wait to dine again, next time for fun.
This is an outstanding restaurant!!!
A wonderful evening on the deck with great food and service.
Excellent food and service. Always reliable. Glad to be able to start visiting again!
The food was below average. One would expect the food to be much better for the price. The service was as extremely slow. Had much better service and food in restaurants for a lot less would not recommend
Always a winner. Food great and ambiance of outdoor service was wonderful
We always have a great dining experience at Brave New. Delicious food of the highest quality. All the staff and the owner work hard to provide excellent service.
Always great, brave new restaurant is one of the consistently better restaurants in Little Rock. Every time I talk someone into trying their walleye, they love it. We were able to sit on the deck overlooking the river in the downtown skyline. Already looking forward to our next visit.
The server was very informative describing specials and items on the menu. Great service, fabulous presentation and delicious food. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Brave New is ALWAYS on point. The elk tenderloin was a fantastic treat - with enough elk for two meals. I added a couple of their perfect scallops to my salmon meal, and was so glad I did. These are the best scallops I have had anywhere. Yes, here in land-locked Arkansas! Peter gets only the finest scallops and knows how to prepare them to perfection. I could fuss about the parking, but the food, service and view more than make up for a little hike to the building.
Since our res time was at the peak hour, a little slow in the delivery
Great food, great atmosphere. Some of the best food I've eaten in Little Rock!
We love Brave New Restaurant. The food, service, and atmosphere are always top notch! Thanks for a great dinner.
The menu right now is much shorter than it used to be, so not as many options. The pecan crusted trout had lots of crab meat but no pecans.
We had a great overall experience at Brave New restaurant. We sat outside and the mosquitoes were out a bit. If there’s anyway to reduce those critters that’d be fantastic. Maybe some citronella and lavender plants along the balcony would help? Overall, we love Brave New Restaurant and will always come back. A wonderful place for special occasions and/or an anytime dinner!
Lovely view of River. Great food & service.
