    Last Saturday we had a Birthday dinner for 10. Our table was outside in the Atrium-very romantic. Food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. After dinner we danced to a live DJ. Pure fun. And mostly, I didn't feel like out of place on the dance floor. There was a variety of "ages" Can't wait to go back.

    We had a family get together for an early July 4th dinner. The patio was delightful. Drink selection was good, however; prices were high considering early bird timing and proximity to the bar. We would have appreciated the opportunity to order a few more drinks at the special price since there were no prix fixe offers and the bill for the seven of us was quite high.

    This was the worst restaurant experience in years. Service was non-existing. Food was OK. I have never experiencd so much noise in my 70 some odd years of fine restaurant dining. It was expensive. If you want a nice relaxing atmosphere stay far away from there.

    The food is delicious, the service is impeachable, the noise is awful!!! There is a live music around but it is not the sourse of noise, if you get unlucky to be there at the same time with bunch of drank noisy woman - you are out of luck, but ... then.. it is not the restaurant fault! The place is amazing, nice, welcoming and romantic. Oh, and food is just great!

    This place always looks buzzing. Perhaps it is a good place for a drink. No one was there but it took a while to get seated because the host had disappeared and the servers asked me to try to find her which led me to follow her around trying to get her attention. Our server was super-nice but hard to get to come to the table and then forgot our order after he did. The food was not so great. The smoked mozzarella was good but instead of sundried tomatoes, as per the menu, the tomatoes were fresh, out of season, and without dressing. They have one terrific bread and two poor ones. My pasta with vegetables came with frozen peas and carrots in a tasteless tomato sauce.

  • I Hate Being Ignored
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/13/2014
    I showed up and was ignored by the multiple hosts/maitre'd on staff. Waiting to be seated at the front of the restaurant, the people in front of me were browsing the menu, while 3 host staff helped them. Then one of the hostesses walked AROUND me to help the couple who showed up AFTER me. This was insulting. At that point I threw my hands up in the air and asked the hosts if I was invisible. If I wasn't meeting a date there, I would have walked out. It wasn't until then that a host finally asked if he could help me. Once I was seated, the food was good, the wait staff was excellent. But I won't be back after being so insulted and ignored by the host staff.

    The hostess welcomed me with a big smile and open arms. Did not even check the computer, knew my name. The waiter immediately brought water, ice tea, warm bread, while I awaited my friend's arrival. The bus boy turned on all four heaters for everyone to be more comfortable. The skye was blue, but there was a chill factor. The food was farmer's market fresh and well prepared. We could not have asked for anything more.

    Dined on 1/25/2014
    We've been here several times and enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere and charm of the staff is very welcoming. Some specials have been hit or miss; occasionally "al dente" comes out a bit too "crunchy" or a dish is a bit too salty, but the fish is excellently prepared as are most of the regular offerings. Both the indoor and outdoor seating areas are comfortable -- it's so nice to be able to dine al fresco in the middle of winter with a few heat lamps nearby!

    I took my husband and a friend to dinner. I chose this restaurant after reading good reviews. What a disappointment! The bread was stale. The servers mixed up the orders so that the men ate dinners they hadn't ordered. I had to ask to have the plates cleared and we were charged for a drink we didn't order. I ordered the Bronzino and it was extremely ordinary. Raspberry tarte was listed for dessert on the specials menu, but it could have been purchased at the local supermarket ... Nothing special at all. We spent $220. Just to discover a place to cross off our list. We will not be returning and we will not recommend this place. :((

    Service was bad. The waiter did not bother to serve us for the longest time. He totally ignored us. When i tried to get his attention, he was very hard to find and once i found him, he looked but didnt come to our table to help us. He was making a lot of jokes that made me feel really uncomfortable. The food came out really late and everything was just not worth it. I will NEVER go back in here in my entire life.

    Horrible experience from start to finish. Instead of giving us menus, our server asked "Can I help you?" like he was a bank teller. Then they screwed up our dinner order, we sat with empty drinks forever - it was a nightmare. Do not waste a night out by giving this restaurant your business.

    The food is good, not great but more than adequate for a neighborhood Italian joint. Looked like there were many regulars stopping by for dinner. The service was okay. We were seated in the courtyard and it took forever for the wait staff to notice us sitting there and in between checking in on us or bringing us food and drinks. Once we had their attention though, all the staff were nice.

  • I had a 30% off dinner coupon
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/23/2013
    I had a 30% off dinner coupon that I brought to the servers attention when we first arrived. I was hesitant to do this because I thought it may cause him to slight our service, which is exactly what happened. I am a server too, so I am fully aware of the etiquette of tipping on the FULL amount of the bill PRE-discount, but I feel like he didn't want to spend any extra time taking care of us. Ah well, the food was good and the live band was cool. However, I live in Venice, so I probably won't make another trip to Beverly Hills for this spot though.

A lovely dinner, lovely ambience, not a "scene" but a simple, elegant experience.
