We celebrated NYE at Brave New and we were not disappointed. The food was outstanding! The scallops are the best I have eaten anywhere! I tried a bite of the walleye and wished I had ordered that! Peter Brave greats us every time we eat at his establishment. He cares whether you enjoyed your meal and I can’t think of another place in Little Rock where that happens!

Clean, simple, lovely food. Lacking in imagination. Smoked fish was the best thing we ordered. Salad was poor. Duck was great. Very expensive for the total package of food, ambiance, and service.

Excellent quality and attention to detail. Seafood is always fresh and well prepared. I have never had a meal that I wasn’t impressed with at Brave New.

Perfect dinner as always!! Quiet atmosphere lends to great conversation. Food was outstanding, our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. He let us set the pace of the dinner experience which is one of my favorite things about going there. You just don’t get that combination in many restaurants. Thanks for making our evening perfect in every way!!

We had not been to Brave New Restaurant in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food is outstanding and worth the drive. Plan to go back more often.

We eat here every year for my husbands birthday with his family. It is the perfect place for a nice, adult dinner! The food is always amazing! Mixed grill or beef tenderloin is always a good choice.

Brave New was delicious as always. The tuna was particularly good on this evening.

They were out of a couple of the bottles of wine we ordered, but Jack and Peter were very responsive to take care of us.

Food was very good but expensive. It is in a very unexpected location, an office building on the 2nd floor in an area that didn't look at great driving in. I think the problem was that we were coming from west Little Rock and the GPS brought us up from I-630 through some less than great areas. I think it has a view of the river but when we got there it was dark and cold and never saw a view. Restroom is the one provided by the building across from the elevator and less than what you expect from an expensive restaurant. I think a lot of the clientele are regulars who like a quiet place with good food and don't care what it costs.

Always solid food. The entire plate is beautiful and delicious. The proteins are ideally seasoned and wonderfully prepared; the sides, apps, and soups are absolutely wholesome and wonderfully done. Certainly worth the top dollar and by far one of the shining stars of Little Rock.

I never look at the menu because I always order the Walleye every time! It’s the best fish I’ve had in Little Rock. The appetizer of roasted grapes and burrata was the tastiest surprise of the night!
