    We got off to a shaky start because the server was not particularly welcoming. As the evening went on, he became more and more friendly and we were happy about that. The food was inconsistent. Bread a little stale, the grouper I had was dry and just okay, but the lobster mashed potatoes were delicious and my husband's steak was excellent. Over the years we've had excellent experiences here with perfect food and service, and other times, the wait staff has taken a while to warm up, and the food not so great.

    I've been coming here for over 10 years and never had a bad meal. Chef Anthony is great at what he does. The last two times I've gone I simply asked him to make me something good. Both times he made me seafood dishes that were off the menu but absolutely delicious. This is the only place I would even consider doing that in.

    My husband and I have dined at Caffe Regatta twice--once for bunch, which was excellent, and last night for dinner. My husband ordered the sirloin, which was quite large and grilled to perfection. The waiter graciously allowed him to substitute crispy fries for onion rings. I ordered two specials: the crab cake appetizer with an arugula salad and baked halibut wrapped in prosciutto. Both were so amazingly delicious I found it difficult to share. The restaurant is a charming, small and lovely neighborhood spot. I enthusiastically recommend Caffe Regatta for a near-perfect evening or Sunday brunch.

    Over the years I have been to Caffe Regatta when I visit my parents in Pelham and it has never disappointed. This week we went twice and not only was the food great, as always, but the server remembered us and what drank and ate! The menu has a nice selection of everything-seafood, steak or chicken. Highly recommend visiting here and supporting the local merchants of Pelham.

    Even if you only have an hour before seeing a show at the nearby Picture House in Pelham, you can grab a glass of wine and share an appetizer, salad and appetizer size pasta and you're ready to go. Food is delicious (love the spring rolls), and staff friendly and accommodating.

    Don't go out of your way for this one, good for locals that are near by and convenience trumps food. it was nothing special, food was just ok, no flavor to either the pasta dish or the chicken dish (that was over cooked),service is bad. Much much better choices out there..... 1st and last time for us.

    I had been to Cafe Regatta for dinner prior to this visit and it was excellent. I ordered the same food this time and it was the worst I had ever had. The avocado in the tuna tatare was frozen and in chunks. When we notified the waiter, he brought us back what was the original appetizer but just put in the microwave. The avocado was warm and the tuna was cooked. The scallops dish and swordfish were very salty and fishy. Even the spinach was salty. This time we had a groupon and we noticed the waiters attitude changed once we mentioned it. We aren't going back to this restaurant.

    Really nice ambiance in a great spot but two visits and still disappointed. First visit, had oysters and was not pleased with the shucking talents for a 'seafood restaurant'. Almost inedible. Second visit was for brunch and my whole party of six wasn't exactly thrilled. I ordered crab cake BLT and not only was it was missing the T and the chipotle aioli, the bread was stale too, making it extra DRY and a crumbly mess. Had 3 pieces of crab shell in the patty. French fries - best part of my dish.

    This is my second time at this restaurant - and I literally returned because of the parsnips and pannacotta bread pudding. Both are exceptional. I had salmon both times - consistently good. This time I had an appetizer (Burrata Mozzarella) but it wound up as burrata and peppers - not sure why but they brought me tomatoes. It is a diverse menu (emphasis on fish and seafood) but overall a nice place with good service.

    The staff was welcoming and attentive but not intrusive. The food was okay and the price was okay. But it could be better. I had the scallops which had been grilled. They had a black char which was very bitter. Much better to saute scallops. The nest of spinach had a sour note, maybe too much vinegar. A small serving of saffron rice and two or three pieces of asparagus would have been better. The tuna tartar that we had for a starter was very good.

    My 3rd brunch here and 1st dinner. I had been looking forward to Sunday brunch with the girls in Pelham. The restaurant was empty when we arrived at 12:30, could have been a red flag. On a beautiful Sunday in the summer, most restaurants are bustling with patrons. Calimari was great and is strongly recommended, crab cakes, not so much. Two of us ordered the lobster Benedict which didn't taste fresh. No one made a big deal as we were enjoying bellinis and mimosas. The restaurant has outdoor seating which is nice. I'll be back and give them a second chance.

    The California spinach salad with walnuts and roasted Bosc pears is spectacular -- because it comes with fried goat cheese! The house-made creamy burrata mozzarella on a bed of olive oil poached tomato and roasted peppers was phenomenal! If you like Bellinis, try a Bellini-Tini (vodka, peach schnapps and Chambord topped with champagne)! For dessert, have a plate of canneloni with a glass of Frangelica! Yum!

    One of my favorites, Cafe Regatta never disappoints. Tucked in along Wolf Ln in Pelham, this restaurant is a gem. Reservations a must, we ate on a nite when there were 3 groups from a local confirmation ceremony. Although the service was understandably slower than usual, the food more than made up for the slight inconvenience. Don't miss the cod fish.

    The brunch at Caffe Regatta was fine, the service was o.k. but the ambiance was more like a bar than a decent restaurant. We find ambiance a major part of a good dining expeience. With small effort this establishment could be made into a pleasant atmosphere. All in all, we were disappointed especially since it was rated in Zagat.

    Despite reservations, we waited about 25 minutes for a table. We had to stand near the bar while waiting, since there were several kids seated and eating at the small bar. Service was below average, from not asking if we wanted drinks once seated, to not clearing the table in a timely manner. Food was okay, but nothing we ordered was anything above ordinary. Capuccino was barely warm when served. The best part of the meal was probably the molten chocolate cake served with ice cream for dessert. I don't see any reason to return to this restaurant.

    The appetizer we shared was fresh and delicious. My entree was very good, but my husband's entree was very small. He was still hungry. Service was very good, particularly from the bus boy, but the restaurant was almost empty at the time we were there. Maybe there were four or five occupied tables. Probably would not recommend this restaurant because there is nothing outstanding enough for us to travel here.

    The food was delicious - the service iffy. We were seated for a good 15 minutes without a menu. We did get water and bread but no menus or drinks. Fortunately we were a nice party of four so we were able to pass the time. The time between courses was also long. The food did make up for the wait and annoyingly poor service though. Each dish was excellent.
