Was not told when arrived that there was hardly anything on the menu available. What we asked for was not available. The Wok choice was ok but steak was so tough couldn’t chew so was left we had 2 very disappointed. One off our party’s chips arrived after he had ate the rest off the meal. Service was very poor. Even had to wait at least 20 mins for drinks. Our reservation was at 7.30 I’m glad we did not book any later. Not sure if I would ever risk going back.
Overall disappointing, not recommending to friends and family.

We take customer satisfaction seriously and are glad to hear from you. I want to apologize first hand for your experience with us, as it being the last day before lockdown, a selection of items from our menu were sold out, as we had to deal with a larger number of guests, with minimum staff, that might have impacted your visit and our quality of service. I would like to take the opportunity to invite you back in as soon as we reopen for the proper Bracca experience. Regards, Restaurant Manager

Friendly, welcoming staff. Quiet atmosphere. Our meal of rack of rack of lamb was delicious and cooked to our individual choice. My only complaint would be that i would have preferred more choice with the vegetables but our plates were clean at the end of the meal

Disappointing first visit to a Bracca, had heard good things about it and wanted to support a local business given the tough times. Unfortunately the place was understaffed, our waitress was visibly upset and struggling to manage. Took 45 minutes for our drinks to arrive and even longer for food, and when it did arrive it was stone cold so we left and went elsewhere. Would not be in a rush back sadly.

Great food and service but a very limited menu but didn't know if that had anything to do with the covid at the moment

Very dark inside, difficult to read menu. I had chcicken burger and upgraded to loaded fries. Burger was ok the fries were not fries but chips.
Drinks prices were expensive. Nearly £5 for a paint of pepsi max.

We take customer satisfaction seriously and are glad to hear from you. We do however differentiate between chips and fries. As chips being the chubby cut and fries being the longer cut. As for the pint of Pepsi max, the price is £3 and it is stated in the menu. Which I, myself compensated for you. So they where on the house. We keep and open communication with our guests and we'd like the opportunity to earn your continued trust next time you visit us. Regards, Valentina Restaurant Manager

I and my husband visited on a Monday so it was fairly quiet- the service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious. The decor was very luxe and unlike any other restaurant in Bracknell and table we were seated at had a flame in the middle which fun. Overall we had a great lunch date.

Came here for the first time and loved it, the food was delicious, very tasty and cooked perfectly, the portions were very generous . Our waitress was lovely always there if you needed her but not intrusive. We both loved the building and decor & will definitely return.

Ambience was nice as last night before lockdown so was busy! Tall gentleman was a bit rude in the beginning, but seemed to be more pleasant towards the end of the evening.
Steaks were cooked beautifully! Chocolate fondant was over cooked but without hesitation the waitress took it off the bill which was extremely nice.

Food is good, lager is awful and not much atmosphere.
Think the large open expanse with high ceilings needs some thought

We went for the Halloween Special evening. Started with the Vampires Kiss cocktail and loved the theatre with the Grenadine poured over the lemon to give the /Vampires Kiss'.

The food was excellent, the service was excellent and the Saint Emilion was a good bottle of wine decanted and served well.

Nice family dinner. Really good, attentive service. Rack of lamb was actually lamb cutlets and sauce wasn’t great but all other food was good. Maybe a little overpriced but it was a nice evening.

Yes!!! Perfect night. Went once before and the food was amazing but the service had been slow (short staffed I think)
Went again on Wednesday with a group of friends and it was amazing!
The food was as good as before, the service was attentive and friendly and we all had a great time.
The ambience is amazing- just love the decor.
Really well priced for the experience.
Will return!

Lovely food, great service, but a bit quite - I hope more people discover it as the food was really great and well worth a return visit, but as it was so quite the atmosphere was definitely lacking.

Took my family for Sunday lunch, the experience wasn’t great. We were seated right next to a couple (no social distancing consideration) who were complaining that their food was under cooked and they requested it be sent back - not a great start.

We ordered our food in hope that it would be OK. I had a steak that was under cooked and bland, my wife had lamb chops that were fatty and again not cooked well. My son ordered a stir fry and after 10 minutes of waiting we were told that one of the key ingredients wasn’t in stock - why not mention that when we ordered? We had 3 different people serve us with none of them showing any real interest in us or the food.

Overall the bad service, average food and the £90 bill means we will not be going back.

It’s a shame as it has potential but very bad execution.

The waitress was on her own unfortunately i didn’t get her name but she was doing everything and food was on time drinks came quick when we ordered more the food was absolutely gorgeous portion size was good and great price it was my birthday and i got a round of drinks on the house which was a nice gesture the only criticism I had was it was a bit dark in there although we was sat in the corner but i will definitely be going back again and will be recommending to friends and family i own my own bar and I’ll be telling my customers to go and visit.

Fast service, food was excellent, both manager and waitress were polite. One of the best steaks I've had. 10% gratuity didn't feel enough if I'm honest (had to come back with an extra tip as I didn't get the option to add more onto the bill). Covid safety measures were great too. Would definitely go again.

Very slow service, left without drinks when glasses were empty. Roasted vegetables came after main was eaten. Steaks were given the wrong way round of how we wanted it cooked. Wasn't offered dessert.
