We enjoyed a birthday luncheon--ourWe enjoyed a birthday luncheon--our waiter was outstanding---great personality.
All the waitstaff were friendly and smiling.
The food was good but not wonderful---6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experience!I booked Il Fornaio for a surprise baby shower for a work colleague. I mentioned when booking that we'd like a somewhat private space if possible so we'd have somewhere to place the gifts and cake, and also so the guest of honor would have room to unwrap her gifts without them being in the way of other customers. The restaurant put us in the most perfect room in terms of size and location (they even made sure we'd be able to see the mom-to-be when she arrived) and the staff really went above and beyond to make it a great experience for everyone. They helped us decorate the room, brought in extra tables for the gifts and cake and were incredibly attentive all throughout our lunch. It was absolutely perfect.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCONSISTENTLY GREATIl Fornaio capabably handled a party of 8. They offered to accommodate changes to menu items to fit everyone's needs and the food was out of this world (Piatto Smeralda is my favorite!). Luckily, our group was seated in a small side room, which made it easier to hear each other and was also less disruptive to people in the larger, noisier rooms. Our server was as perfect as the food. We'll be back!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMlooks great, tastes fineWe come here for special family occasions or for a nice couple night out in the neighborhood. we'll eat at the bar, or with family get a table inside or bettwr out on the patio. atmosphere is great. outside in particular reminds us of past trips to italy. service generally very attentive and personalized. menu is interesting and monthly specials are appealing. all that is great. but somehow the food never quite lives up. Not bad, never anything way off, but never leave there thinking 'wow, i need to order that again'. but we keep coming back, because my teenagers like it, its convenient, decor and service are special, and maybe this time the food will surprise.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHandled a group of 13 with easeWe went to Il Fornaio for a law school graduation celebration. What a wonderful event! We were in the main dining room area, but separated from the hustle and bustle of the full restaurant by a half divider. Our waiter was superb. He assisted our son in making the wine selections which were excellent. He even spoke about the different wineries. Most knowledgable waiter/sommelier we have ever had served us. The food was excellent from the antipasto trays to the dessert. One of our young men had grown up in Europe and was thrilled to have the zabaglione which tasted just like what his grandfather used to make. We can not thank the restaurant enough. Location in tech center is a plus.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchSurprised to find they had a Mother's Day Brunch. Food as always was outstanding. We come to IL Fornaio often and always leave happy and full. Thanks so much.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayWe were seated quickly and had our drinks quickly. We enjoyed the food and nice surroundings. We would come back again5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Fantastic!We have enjoyed Il Fornaio many times and we have NEVER had as bad meal. Phenomenal Northern Italian food that features different regions every month. The service is absolutely spot on, with everyone highly familiar with their food and preparation. Very nice wine list and a great patio that is wonderful in the evenings, and they don't crowd the tables, so it is very private. We have standardized our special occasions here as we are treated like royalty.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, not kid-friendlyIl Fornaio didn't seem prepared. The greeters were friendly when approached but appeared flustered when I arrived, as if they forgot our table. No eye contact for almost 10 minutes, while later parties were promptly seated. I had to approach again, and still we waited before seating. Overflow & large group tables were in awkward locations for wait staff and customers to access. Our waiter was superb! The food was very good! Finding a meal for my normally adventurous 9 year-old off of the limited breakfast menu would have been challenging if not for the lone waffle option. Though appropriate for dinner, the wait was too long for breakfast or lunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad to order 3 different beers,Had to order 3 different beers, as the bar was out. Not good.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness LunchI enjoyed Il Fornaio, and it was a quiet atmosphere for our business lunch. I had a salad with shreaded chicken, bacon and mixed greens. It had a vinegarette dressing that was very good but not over powering. Attentive service without being disruptive. I didn't try the pasta, but the ravioli that my associate had looked delicious.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date nightIl Fornaio is a great restaurant to bring a date to. The atmosphere is great for a nice quiet romantic date. The service there is always excellent. The food is always perfect. The noise level is low so very easy to have conversations with your date.
If you are looking for a great place to take a date, Il Fornaio should be on your list!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered the turkey paninoI ordered the turkey panino which was wonderful with large chunks of turkey meat that melted in my mouth. The accompanying salad was plentiful and tasty. The french fries were the weakest part of the meal...actually luke warm...
Our waiter was slammed but, remained friendly and accommodating.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there to celebrateWe were there to celebrate two birthdays. The food was excellent and our server was outstanding. She was very attentive to our needs and knew exactly when to "check-in" with us.

Although it is not on the menu at Il Fornaio, the chef very kindly prepared it for us. This was not the first time they have made this dish for me and, as a consequence, I will always choose Il Fornaio when I am in the mood for fine Italian food. By the way, it was delicious!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my "go-to"This is one of my "go-to" restaurants. The food is always excellent, as is the service, and the ambiance.

He was very attentive to our every need. We will return!

The staff is helpful and lovely. Even made sure my cab was there on time to take me back to airport. Kitchen needs to pay a little more attention as I asked specifically for no raisins in my couscous and it arrived with them and had to be remade. Unfortunate when you are dining with a client. And thankful someone still makes PLAIN iced tea, not flavored!All in all, will definitely return.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT FOOD & FABULOUS SERVICEGreat food, fabulous service.
