what's up with Brava Bistro?

pants | Mar 16, 2007 12:44 PM

Before I moved to Calgary, a friend of mine was here for work every couple weeks and told us when we moved we had to go to Brava! It was his favorite restaurant after trying most of the usual suspects downtown - he always got good service and the food was consistently good.....

A couple months later we moved to Calgary - Went with a group of people to Brava for dinner....service was slow but that was fine since it was friendly and going out for dinner was our evening so we weren't in any hurry. Everyone enjoyed their food - overall good experience.

A few months later we went back with the previously mentioned friend while he was in town visiting. I enjoyed my meal, but my boyfriend did not and the service was falling...

About a month ago my boyfriend's family were in town (one a chef) so we were trying to choose a good place to go - unfortunately we were trying to get a last minute reservation on a Saturday night - Brava had a table, so we took the reservation - I had no real complaints about it, service is an issue almost everywhere....

Service was terrible, wine was dripped all over the table and never cleaned up - the food wasn't anything to write home about and to continue with the poor service, when the plates were cleared those of us on the ends ended up with food dropped on us....

Brava gets such good reviews consistenly - has anyone else noticed it seems to be slipping....
