Three of us enjoyed drinks and dinner on a Wednesday night. While the menu may look a bit pricey, the high quality of the food and knowledge of their exceptional drink menu (wine, beer, and liquor) makes a night at Brava an excellent value. Recommend any if the shrimp dishes, the calamari, and kale salad (especially).

I love this place, its tiny but really cozy. I go there whenever I go to lenox - the food is great. Fun to share a bunch of small bites with friends.

Very small restaurant so go early if you want get seat. The sautéed kale with pistachios and the patatas bravas were excellent. The pizza with mushrooms was just a little dry and didn't quite make the grade with us. Tables are REALLY close together which might be a problem for some, but we were fortunate to be seated next to... More

Great place to eat in Lenox. Restaurant is very small and they don't take reservations. Small plates were great. There was nothing we didn't enjoy. We loved their selection of specialty pizzas. Great wine list. Great energy in the restaurant.

A Saturday night with no dinner reservations during peak leaf season brought us to Brava where reservations are not accepted (so arrive early or plan to wait). We arrived a bit after 6 and waited about 20 min for a seat at the bar. I had an amazing fall sangria with hints of cinnamon and cayenne pepper. YUM! We picked... More

Great little tapas spot. Food was tasty and had a great selection of wine and beer. Go early or be prepared for a significant wait! Definitely would recommend to friends visiting Lenox and the surrounding area.

The owner of at The Cornell Inn recommended Brava to us and we loved it! The menu had one page of great tapas and three pages of every wine and beer known to man. Crowded, but worth the wait.

We have been to Brava many times as we are local residents. The selection of wines and beers is amazing, in all price ranges. The food choices are wonderful, all very tasty. Yesterday I ordered the grilled sirloin steak with chimichurri sauce. It was excellent. However, I like meat with a spicy sauce, so I ordered hot sauce. I was... More
