Love Fontina GrilleWe love Fontina Grill! It's our #1 place to go for a comfortable great meal with family or friends, whether it's to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion. The wait staff is always great and the food is spectacular!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood GemFontina Grille is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant where the food is good, the service attentive and a totally welcoming attitude. Ali lives in the neighborhood and has a wonderful sense of community.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood relaxing dinnerFontina truly is a neighborhood gem! Always pleasant attentive service, good food and reasonable prices. I do appreciate the fact that there is seldom a wait but I hope others will try this so they are here for a long time.
We were able to sit outside Saturday night and enjoy a pleasant evening. Fontina has even posted the outside area to be non-smoking until 11PM.
We have sampled a significant portion of their menu and always enjoy the result. Reasonably priced wine list.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPizza/Pasta PlaceOur first time here. Great find with lots of options on the menu and very reasonably priced. Our server ( Reza) was very nice, extremely friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu and had lots of helpful recommendations. Dont ask for booth because they are all the way in the back of the restaurant and not much of an ambience. The guests at the front seemed to be enjoying themselves more. You can opt to sit outside (very limited number of tables) if not very hot.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's the little thingsThe restaurant's strength is the service. I have visited it four times and had three different wait staff. All were personable and efficient. The weakness of the restaurant is the ambiance, one I would have expect in a mid-priced chain restaurant--which this is not. The kitchen purchases very good ingredients and prepares them competently, but the flavors lack balance. The soy was particularly dominant in the salad dressing. What was most annoying on this visit was that the bread I requested to sop up the sauce from the mussel caprese dish was still in the oven 20 minutes after I arrived at the restaurant at its 11:30 opening. Could someone not have started the baking early enough to complete it by opening time?5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSomething for EveryoneAll dishes were good and all family members could find something to their taste5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI like itI've dine at this place several times. It is a nice place, nothing extra special but it is a place you wouldn't mind to go again and again. I like their outdoor dining. It gives you the 'city type' view without 'Washington DC'ish ciaos'. I had lunch and dinner and I've always been somewhat satisfied with pretty much everything they offer; food, drink, service, atmosphere.
my last visit was yesterday. I heard about their lunch buffet and I went there with several of my friends. We were pleasantly surprised. the food was good, enough variety, there was also salad bar and one type of desert. Our server was really nice. for $11, you can't beat that.
I'll definitely go back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI dine at Fontina Grille regularly,I dine at Fontina Grille regularly, and it never disappoints.

A littleWe had a great time. A little on the noisy side, but they made up for it with the food and the service. I love how all the entrees come with soup or salad. It is a really nice perk. We had a great experience with Open Table for our first time. I can't believe how convenient it is. Thank you both, Open Table and Fontina Grill!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesFontina Grille is one of our "go to" places we like to frequent when we want to be assured we'll have a great experience. The food is consistently great, service (on most nights) is also great - and the management of this restaurant is top-notch! We've been dining here for years, and have had large groups of family/friends (as many as 15), and intimate diners for 2 - it's always a good time.12/30/2012 12:00:00 AMGreat food and Excellent service!I have been dining at this restuarant for years. As always the food has been excellent. It's a great place to take the family for occasions or take a client. Definitely a place I will continue to visit!11/10/2012 12:00:00 AM
