    I am sorry to say we were disappointed in the food. We will try one more time and hopefully you will improve on the food. Especially your Pasta dishes. I am a foodie,your light marinara sauce tasted as though it was cooking all day, it was thick not at all light. The four of us were had different dishes and we each felt all sauces were way over cooked and thick. It was as if the chef wasn't there all day. You have a lovely restaurant please try not to over cook everything. Thank you,Gigs

    We were celebrating my 70th birthday at Lorenzo's. We eat there approximately once a week. Everyone is always so welcoming, helpful (of course they all know us and what our preferences are). The food was very good. Since it was a very special year for me, the staff at Lorenzo's made it even more memorable.

    This restaurant is easy to get to and has a beautiful decor and ambience. It is roomy with enough space between tables for private conversation. The food this time was not outstanding. I had risotto topped with blackened red snapper. The risotto was tasty but the snapper was tough. My friend and I ordered desserts. They seemed pre-made/boxed, were lukewarm and not at all what we expected. I would return and try other dishes but would skip desserts.

    I dine with friends a few times a year at Lorenzo's and we are ALWAYS pleased. The greetings, the service, THE FOOD, yummy. (It is so good, we eat it all!) Richard and Lois always come over to our groups to say "Hello" and we feel like family. My friends and I love having this wonderful, family friendly hotel/restaurant/catering hall right within a few minutes drive from where we live. Each time, it gets better and better. (How can they keep doing that????) Thank you for your work and friendship!

    I was looking for a restaurant near a theater where I was going to see a. movie. With the name (restaurant, bar & caberet) and its location inside a Hilton Garden Inn, I wasn't expecting much other than the convenience of being close to the theater. What I got was an elegant setting with the service of fine dining. There were many good choices on the menu and very appealing daily specials. I would go here again and recommend it to others looking for a SI eatery.

    We were not informed of limited menu due to cabaret night so we were disappointed with the options. Food came out quickly so we are convinced it was served from a buffet. We were sat in a room off lobby also due to cabaret. Would have been nice to be informed of cabaret night on open table so we could have arranged for a table by the entertainment perhaps we would not have been focused on food quality. Overall the hilton hotel was nice, staff friendly and courteous and both bar/club scene were fun.

  • Romantic Evening at Lorenzo's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/23/2014
    I had considered going to this restaurant with my boyfriend only because of a gift certificate he won at a dance a year before. I made a copy for my own personal records (I was still in the honeymoon phase) and he kept the real document in a safe place, or so I thought. The restaurant still honored the copy and we had a nice evening. The food was a bit limiting, but still nice and Italian. Our waiter treated us as adults and was quite flustered, giving us 2 cokes accidentally instead of one and spilling water all over the table. And the guitarrist gladly played the Beatles for us, which was lovely.

    I had a surprise Birthday party for my sister this past Sunday, for 20 women. The fact that 2 days later I am still receiving text messages from the guests that they had such a great time and the food was so good, definitely says something about Lorenzo’s. The staff was very accommodating. I was so pleased with everything that I am going to book the same brunch for my son's graduation on February 23rd and once again for a large group.

  • Dad's 80th

    Dined on 12/7/2013
    We reserved Lorenzo's on line for my father-in-laws 80th birthday. My wife called Monday December 2 prior to Saturday December 7 for 7 people at 7:00 to find out if we can bring our own Birthday cake, which they said would be a good idea cause they only have cakes to accommodate 20 people. On our way up to Staten Island, Lorenzo's called us and asked me my father-in-laws name and stated they would put some stuff onto the table- when we got there- nothing was there and during the dinner, the owners walked around and were aware it was my father in laws 80th birthday, but they didn't do anything extra or make our event feel special.

    I had been here for a party, the food was great and I couldn't wait to go back to try their Sunday brunch. I was disappointed in the brunch which I found to be average and none of the food was particularly noteworthy. The chocolate fountain is a fun idea but the chocolate is so bad it's not even edible. The service was great, the wait staff was friendly and accommodating. I do suggest requesting to be seated away from the piano as it can be challenging to talk over the pianist playing. Overall, I would go back for a party but I am unlikely to return for or recommend brunch.

    We made reservations to have dinner at Lorenzo's in the Hiltoin Garden, because we were attending a function at the hotel that evening. When we entered the restaurant it looked great with waiters in tuxes and a very nice decor. It took us about 20 minutes from the time we were seated to the time the waiter finally came to our table. The service was very slow, and the food was only fair. My expectation of Lorenzo's far exceeded what they delivered. I probably won't be back.

    I had a wonderful time. We celebrated my 63rd birthday on the actual day, July 18th, 2013. We used the $25 gift certificate which I received through my email address. We have been there before and stayed there. We enjoy your latin dances also! We have missed a few latin events in the past but we hope to be able to go to the next one! Salsa at the Hilton is phenomenal! Our last Salsa at the Hilton was for the Easter Weekend 2012 if I remember correctly with Ismael Miranda playing. What a great night. Thank you!
