Dinner was great too!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster BrunchThe salad bar was excellent. The main food bar was a nice selection. We were turned off that many of the food trays on the buffet were often almost empty. As the morning progressed, though, they seemed to be more on top of that.
Overall it was a wonderful experience. The service was excellent. The staff went out of its way for us.
One complaint: at $30 per person we felt it was a poor management decision to charge extra for coffee and tea. It seems that should have been part of the the Easter brunch cost. That particular thing really, really turned us off to the restaurant. It is small things that stay with you. Will it stop us from returning? Maybe. It was a petty, no class thing to do in our opinion.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had family brunch EasterWe had family brunch Easter Sunday. Food was good, service was good, weather was perfect.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStevenGreat Easter Brunch, will definitely return for their regular menu on the patio.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was exceptional.The food was exceptional. The lasagna was delicious and a great twist on a favorite dish. It has thinly sliced veggies with flavorful Italian sausage. The bell pepper sauce is to die for. Yummy. The Salman BLT was great but the chef did forget the bacon on the sandwich. Cause quite a delay for my lunch companion but when it was delivered, the sandwich was delightful. I definitely will return but the food was delicious and flavorful.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMsolid meal though not spectacular;solid meal though not spectacular; great presentation with appropriate serving size; service was attentive and personable; wine list okay; appetizers were excellent; apple tart dessert was okay but forgetable; nosie level excellent for having a conversation though we were there on a sunday evening and it was not overly busy though also not empty3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dish I ordered was tooThe dish I ordered was too spicy. Our waiter made it easy for me to order another dish and it was delicious. I strongly recommend the salmon.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, looooooong waitA group of 7 of us reserved a table for Sunday Brunch at 11:30am. The table was ready and our waitress was very prompt and attentive at first. We ordered our food and waited. And waited. One of our party members arrived nearly an hour late and we still hadn't received our brunch. Our waitress disappeared, so I asked another one to find out where our food was. A manager came by and used the excuse of "we're very busy" but four empty tables sat in my line of sight. Our food finally arrived about 50 minutes after we ordered. Faustina would do well to reexamine the efficiency of their kitchen and wait staff and ordering system. A 20% gratuity was still added to our checks. At least the food was delicious!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always, the foodExcellent as always, the food was particularly excellent. Scallops were perfect!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lamb was delicious butThe lamb was delicious but not as good as the tenderloin. Our waitress suggested the tenderloin and she was right. I can't wait to go again.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMValentine was a little different...I went for Valentine Day dinner. The menu was pre-fix, which is different from the norm. We found the portion size to be on the small side, but relatively appropriate for the value. The main reason I enjoy Faustina is sharing small plates family style, so going pre-fix was not my favorite. This was a unique situation however. The service seemed a little chaotic, but that was also due to the high demand. While I enjoy Spanish wines, the sparkling options for Valentines were underwhelming.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
