Diner Reviews
  • "The whole group loved everything about our dinner @ Mandile's! Nuncio was an outstanding server, and the cuisine was fabulous! The seafood ravioli, was made fresh in house.. The best I have had. Be sure to save room for dessert, the Italian gelato list was plentiful!"

  • "We went on Sat. at 6 PM. The restaurant was buzzing due to a wine tasting event that was happening that day. It was extremely busy but we didn't wait long for our table. The food was exceptional. I had the swordfish with gorgonzola topper on a risotto bed. Great! It was a bit loud and busy on this particular day but the staff handled it nicely. Good vegetarian options as well."

  • "Unfortunately, this was not a good experience. There was a table of 22 which threw the whole kitchen off. My wife and I waited 1:45 for our entrée. All of the courses were delayed. The food is good and we'll be back but this was a disappointing dining experience."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was delicious the service was AWEFUL!! When you see the busboy more than your server and the first thing your server tells you is that she has swimmers ear and can't hear anything so you have to point to everything you know your in for a long night. Not to mentions it took 45 minutes! To get our food for 2 people."

  • "We have enjoyed dining at Mandile's in the past, so we decided to celebrate our 43rd anniversary there. We started with a cocktail outdoors on a nice summer evening and then went indoors for dinner. We had a starter, a bottle of wine, a delicious entrée and left just enough room (kinda) for dessert. The food was delicious and the staff were fantastic. This is a very special family owned Italian restaurant and we will be returning soon."

  • "the service was friendly and helpful, but it took forever to remove dirty plates, in fact our appetizer plates were still on the table when we left. we had soup and were not offered salt or pepper and none was on the table. we were given bread but not offered any more. the food was bland at best, tasteless at worst. the pasta was over cooked. we had one dish replaced due to no flavor at all, the replacement was better. we will not return"

  • "Lovely spot to dine al fresco in the early evening before the live band starts up on a weekend night. Food is fair to good, priced reasonably, though I find wines and cocktails expensive."

  • "we had 9 people and Nancy was our waitress. We asked for separate checks for the couples, but she said we could only have 4 separate checks because of your system. The last time we were there with a group, there wasn't a problem with getting separate checks. She may have had a bad night, but her service wasn't very good. We had to keep asking her for things, she would get someone something, but not ask everyone, so she had to keep coming back to us. One couple waited a long time just to get the check. But otherwise, everyone enjoyed the evening, had a good time and good food. Definitely will come back."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We were at Mandile's for a mini reunion. Service was excellent. Our server was sensitive to the fact that we hadn't been together for a while and gave us plenty of time, but plenty of attention as well. Food is delicious!! Can't wait to return! "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I had been trying to get to Mandile's and was drawn there by the extensive list of Gluten Free items on the menu on the restaurant's website. I booked through OpenTable and my husband and I, along with 2 boys finally made it there! Upon arrival we were handed a menu that didn't resemble the online version at all. After asking, I discovered that the only GF choices were 2 pasta variations with a few sauces. I knew the boys would've enjoyed the pizza or at least some meatballs (when I asked I was told they weren't GF). Overall, the dining experience was pleasant and the place was nice, but I was just let down by the choices I had in comparison to what I thought were there. I would still recommend it and will likely go back."

  • "My wife and I have dined here a handful of times, and always enjoyed our experience. We had family come in town for mothers day, and choose to be here instead of pt. Edwards for mothers day brunch. The food quality was significantly Worse than typical for the restaurant. Our reservation was for 1130 and they were already out of cannolis. Mind you, brunch reservations ran until 2pm. How can you explain that you run out of one of the most popular Italian desserts less than half way through the reservation seating time period. The whole experience was bad, and I wish I would have treated my family somewhere else. "

  • "We discovered this gem during the winter, and we can't wait until the patio opens to enjoy great food and service and nice weather! They even made my husband's birthday special!"

  • "my husband and i eat out every weekend from five star restraunts to the local bar and grill. Never have we had such poor service, althouigh the food was excelent We will not be returning tp Mandiles Restaurant. Our server seemed to have her own agenda. (example)= My husband had coffee after dinner Not only was he not offored a second cup, before he even finished the first cup our waitress swiped the cup from the table immediately followd by the bill. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The pasta dishes were excellent. The eggs good, the rest of breakfast poor. Our waiter couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The hostess was overwhelmed by the crowd and we were there at the end"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "All around Fantastic, we look forward to coming back in the near future. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We've been to Mandile's several times for dinner & have enjoyed it. Easter brunch should be something special but this was far from that. While they said there would be 50 items, I think there was half that amount. First cup of coffee served was cold. Then server brought out a leaking coffee pitcher that made a mess of the table. Most of the hot items on the buffet were not even warm. On a second trip to the buffet, they were out of plates. Really? Mandile's should not offer brunch. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We had dinner for two, with one entree each from the regular and specials menus. The food was excellent from the appetizers on, and service was very attentive and helpful. Will definitely return!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food was OK. If we lived close by, we might go on occasion, mostly because of the outdoor patio. Noise level was high. The server had trouble hearing us. They were setting up for some evening entertainment, that might have been enjoyable but certainly would add to the noise level. We hadn't seen our friends in a month and were looking forward to catching up. Fortunately, we finished dinner before the music started."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I've been to Italy, several places... tortellini tasted EXACTLY as it did in Venice.!! My husbands chicken marsala was to die for... and my son's veal parmesan was equally fabulous. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a true Italian taste!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The food was tasty and portion size was plenty. The staff was gracious and the service was good. We will definitely go back again."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "We went to Mandile to celebrate my birthday and all 9 of us were very pleased. We're an Italian family with some picky people and everyone left there happy and full. The wait staff was attentive and pleasant. This is a new family favorite and we will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Hadn't been here in about a decade, couldn't believe myself. I had forgotten a true treasure. Will return again and again."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We were here on a night when they didn't have entertainment so therefore it was quite. We love music and will have to come back on an evening when we can dance.....perhaps when "The Moods" are performing. Mandile's is very beautiful ..... we had a marvelous waiter, Matt, who was very attentive to our needs. The food was excellent. We really enjoyed the Oysters Rockefeller. We will be back."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I enjoyed the entertainment. However, if you allow reservations online, they should be honored. If there are rules for reservations to attend just for the entertainment, there should have notification on that. Also there should be more servers with this type of crowd. I had to get my drink from the bar."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We went to Mandiles years ago when it first opened. The food was tasteless and the meat/veal tough. We did not go back until recently. We mainly went to see one of our favorite bands The Moods. We had a great time and the place was packed. However the food still is not up to our standards. The salad dressing on the house salad was ALL vinegar. I couldn't eat it. The sauce for the seafood ravioli was not as described, and the veal was still tough. Unless The Moods are there again, we probably won't go back."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We went for dinner and to see The Moods. We got a table for 6 in the corner on the upper level and I'm glad we did that. With the band playing and people dancing, it was quite crowded and loud. If we had a table closer to the band, we wouldn't have enjoyed it that much because of people constantly passing by and the noise level. If you have a banquet hall, you should consider having the band there. Just a suggestion. But overall, we'll definitely be coming back."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I have been to Mandiles several times. The food is carefully prepared with fresh ingredients. Because they prepare things right there they are able to accommodate requests of no salt, no pepper as well as other specials requests. I feel I can eat there knowing what's in my food and that they consider my diet needs and still have wonderfully tasteful dishes. Regarding the service Mat is the very best he asks you questions to make sure he understands your needs without delaying service. You will have several persons ask you about service and dinner needs. If you enjoy music go on a night when they have special event performers, you still will enjoy but if you like a quiet dinner you will love it also. This has become my favorite place."

  • "Me and my Wife were welcomed in a great atmospere as soon as we walked in , love the lighting and setting The food was great and Moderate sized (loved the Gnochi) Damir a fantastic server that knew the wine list well , we followed up at the cozy bar we will definately be back !"

  • "There were 7 of us at dinner on a Sunday night. The calamari, lasagna, and cheese pizza bread were very good, but we did not enjoy the salmon or the steak. They both were topped with a pile of rather bland vegetables. The wine was over-priced. The restaurant was advertised to be open till 9pm, but they seemed to be in a hurry to close the restaurant early. We left around 8pm."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Night began with a bartender who had a snotty attitude. Our waiter was very attentive initially, but once our entrees appeared he disappeared completely and someone else stepped in to take over. The appetizer was good, the salads were delicious, but the dinner was mediocre (filet mignon, Oscar). The ambiance (or lack there of) is where this restaurant really fails in my opinion. It's as if there was a cold, sterile open space and a restaurant was awkwardly stuck in at the last minute. The tile floors make the space cold (not intimate) and incredibly loud. And the layout is strange. And by 9 p.m. a very cheesy and loud lounge act started playing which completely rendered all diners unable to hear one another. I won't be returning."
