My husband and I went there for our 13 anniversary! We made reservations online. Greeted by staff when we walked in. Shown to table immediately. Our waitress was the sweetest! She suggested the lobster queso! Yummm

Bravo was a nice change of pace for us on a date night and we were not disappointed. The crispy shrimp Napoli was excellent. The waiter recommended a nice wine. It was a great experience.

First time we had returned to brunch following a pandemic and life issues. Everything was as good as before. Our server was prompt and attentive without being obtrusive. The food was good. The omelet station is always a favorite and did not disappoint. It remains a good value.

Bass Street is a wonderful restaurant with great views of the river. Great for that special occasion. Awesome bourbon selection. The food is the best in this area and the service is second to none.
