Bravas serves traditional Spanish dishes along with tapas-style dining and has been named in the Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by the San Francisco Chronicle. Sit out on the covered patio any time of the year and enjoy a chilled Tapa of Salmorejo soup or tuna belly salad. Join a group of friends indoors at Bravas while dining on a warm Tapa of bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese, warm bacalao on wood grilled flatbread or the Pocket Creak Duck Egg served sunnyside up with Chorizo cracklings and toast. Other menu items include Monterey Calamari served with salsa verde, blackened lamb porterhouse or the skirt steak with red onion marmalade and Valdeón Cheese. Bravas offers a large selection of local and Spanish wines, sangrias and Spain inspired cocktails that will not only quench your thirst but will complement your food perfectly and authentically.

    Great selection of tapas. Server was a bit confused at times, we waited 25 min once seated just to get first cocktail. Sat on deck outside but not patio. Best spot in house. A bit pricey though

    This visit was the last stop on a day of wine tasting. We sat outdoors on the back porch, shaded from a very warm sun. We started with some specialty gin cocktails which the Levante with orange, saffron and cardamom was excellent. We shared everything. The standouts were the paella, the octopus with fingerling potatoes, the lamb burgers, and the chicken skewers. The waiter was very attentive even on a busy evening and helpful. We opted to try a Spanish Alberino which paired well with our seafood and chicken. A very enjoyable evening and we plan to return.

    A great place for a nice lunch in Healdsburg - good mix of locals and tourists. The tapas are delicious - my favorites were the cauliflower and the tortilla espaniola. I had a wonderful Spanish G&T and my husband had glass of wine - both delicious. Cute place indoors and out!

    Second time lunching at bravas. Great outdoor seating. The food is excellent with many choices, most with a Spanish influence. This restaurant is a must do if you are adventurous and appreciate diversity in food. Be sure to order the grilled octopus; it will not disappoint.

    We love Bravas. Been there many times. One of our fav places. My only complaint is the soft serve. Twice we had it- once it was like milk. It was very hot that day. Yesterday not so hot, but the ice cream was still very melty. Recommend a new dessert choice or call it a milk shake. Not a bad idea It had good flavor, but just the wrong texture.

    We dined outdoors, in the lovely garden setting. Unfortunately, the music was on the loud side, so we wound up over on the side, away from the full blast of the speakers. Almost all of our food choices were exceptional, with amazing flavors. We loved the scallops, the calamari, the beet salad, and the patatas bravas. The only disappointment was with the tuna belly salad, which had little flavor and not much tuna belly. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't ultra delicious. We need to come back to try some of the other exceptional-sounding offerings.

    A wonderful new find for us in Healdsburg. Bravas is part of the group that includes Willi’s raw bar and seafood restaurant in Healdsburg. There are similarities in some of the details, but the menus are completely different. For a shared meal of small plates with interesting takes on Gazpacho, hams and cheeses, eggplant chips and other tapas, it’s an excellent choice for a fun evening out in their garden.

A definite must-try❣️ We try to get to Healdsburg a couple times a year from So Cal. Bravas is always on our dining list.

    We had the most charming staff, from the minute we arrived, until we left. Everyone was friendly, welcoming, very good at discussing the menu, with prompt professional service. Our scallops were excellent, the escarole salad is one of my favorites anywhere. The Gazpacho and bocadillos were lovely. A perfect spot.

    Only my second time here and the food and service were fantastic - equal or better than our first visit. For the two of us we had 4 items and they were all flavor bombs: lamb sliders, goat cheese toasts, octopus, and scallops. With a bottle of wine, it was quite reasonable at $110. Can't wait to return and try more items on the menu.
