  • 91 and Fabulous Birthday Party

    Dined on 7/18/2014
    Our mother was having her 91st birthday and wanted to gamble. We chose The Sands Hotel in PA. And made a reservation for the eight of us, 4 daughters and 3 grand daughters. When we arrived we were greeted and promptly seated. The service was professional, courteous. We chose to order several appetizers to share and they were served just as we ordered. Our entrees were also served as we ordered due to dietary restrictions for mom.the bread was crispy and plentiful served with amazing flavored butter. At the end they brought a dessert with a candle for mom's birthday. It was a memorable meal and a pleasant time for all of us. Upon leaving all the wait staff and chefs wished mom a Happy Birthday. She felt very special.

    My girlfriend and I had a mozzarella caprese appetizer, along with the mixed meat/cheese platter. All were good. I had a veal parmigiana, while my girlfriend had chicken picatta. One of my cutlets was smooth as silk, while the second was a little tough....still acceptable. For the two of us, the bill was very reasonable, around $80 with tip, although neither of us had anything from the bar. The service was pretty good, and I would definitely come back the next time we visit the Sands.

  • Need better hostess
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/14/2014
    Upon arrival I was told to wait to be seated. I probably waited at least 3 or 4 minutes during which time the hostess, who was not attending any other customers, paid no attention to the fact that I was waiting longer than seemed necessary, gave me no explanation why I was waiting, and failed to apologize for the fact that I had to wait. Also, my special request not be seated near air conditioning vents was not acknowledged and I was shown to a table directly below the vents and had to ask then for a better seating location. A more pleasant, friendly and attentive hostess would certainly be an asset to the dining experience in this restaurant.

    We decided to visit the Sands about a week before and chose Emeril's Italian restaurant as a place to have a nice relaxing dinner. The food was good, ambience nice, but our server Autumn was really great. She made us feel welcome from the moment she walked to our table. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Italian Table was our choice for dining prior to a concert at the Sands Event Center. We were seated on time. Our server was very cordial and attentive from start to finish. Our entire meal was fantastic, from appetizers to main entrees. Nothing short of what we would expect from one of Emeril's restaurants!

    First I ordered the EIT salad which is $9.00. I got a dish of salad greens. The salad was supposed to have salami,cheese,chick peas,etc. Someone forgot to add the extras. I told the waitress and she said she could bring me another. Everyone else in the party was done with their meal so I refused. The restaurant was good when it opened however the quality and quantity has consistently gone downhill. If it wasn't for the Sands comps, I would never eat there.

    I grew up in an Italian household and my grandmother cooked dinner for us all every night, so I NEVER order pasta with red sauce out...ever. But I read Emeril's blurb about why he opened an Italian restaurant and he said it was because of lasagna...basically. I wasn't in a lasagna mood so I had the Papardelle Bolognese instead and it was GREAT. I don't even remember bothering to try my wife's salmon putanesca but I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I would definitely go back there when in the area and I have already recommended it to friends and family.

    My husband and I ate here two years ago and couldn't wait to come back. My husband ate spaghetti and the meatballs were fabulous. I had shrimp parmesan which wasn't on the menu but the waitress said they can make it. I was so happy. But when it came the shrimp had such a fishy taste it was horrible. I was only able to eat one shrimp before it became difficult to even chew the shrimp I had to spit it into my napkin. The waitress never asked how my meal was nor did she seem to care when she picked up my uneaten plate. Just cleared our plates and stuck the check on our table. Was very disappointed with our whole visit which was disheartening as my husband and I started our lives together after our date at this restaurant 2 years ago

    We have gone to Italian Table many times and enjoy going there while we are at the Sands. However, on our last visit, the service was extremely slow and the restaurant was not busy at all. We waited about 15 minutes before a server brought us water and took our drink orders and then we had to ask a manager to open our wine because our server never came back for another 15 minutes. We then waited another 30 minutes before our food (personal pizzas) were brought out. The pizzas were very good, but the service was exceptionally slow that evening.

    The food was fabulous. The portions were large. The prices were very reasonable. There were leftovers for lunch the next day. The food presentation was very well done as well. Service was excellent. Waitress was very helpful and attentive. I had noted on the online reservation that we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. As a surprise, on them, they presented us with a dish of chocolate gellato and a biscotti, a nice touch.

    My husband had the lasagna and said it was the best he has ever had. Having a small taste myself, I would have to agree. We had a tasty salad with olives, artichokes, salami and I had brussel sprouts which were excellent. I probably wouldn't have the eggplant parmigana again as the slices were thicker than I like and little sauce or cheese. The atmosphere was attractive, although it was really cold. I even heard men complaining. That said, the service was great and the staff seemed very willing to please and help. I would return again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/26/2014
    The service was below average. Our server had an attitude. The food was just awful. I ordered the chicken cooked under a brick with saffron risotto and roasted brussels. The food was so incredibly salty, and lacked flavor. The brussels were like little concrete nuggets. My husband ordered the bolognese with rigatoni. The pasta was so overcooked it was shredded. The bolognese was more of a vodka sauce with very little meat. We started with the roasted beet and goat cheese salad. It was bland and was basically a plate of chewy arugula with a tasteless beet vinaigrette. I sent my dinner back because it was not edible. I am shocked Emeril would have his name associated with this place.

    Apologetically ... They didn't have what I ordered! Settled for mozzarella and tomato to start...nothing exciting! I ordered eggplant parmigiana with an order of garlic spaghetti ... I've had appetizers with more food. Literally... 2 pieces of eggplants each one no bigger than 3 inches around and a half inch high! Buried in sauce...taste okay nothing to write home about! Extra charge for pasta with garlic as opposed to marinara sauce! My fiancée ordered chicken parmigiana ... One small cutlet over a minimal amount of pasta...total rip off! Cappuccino tasted like burnt chicory had to send back...the table next yo us was complaining as well... SKIP IT! Continental breakfast was picked through...presentation horrible! DISAPPOINTMENT!
