    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Overall experience was very good. I hate that they no longer have the painted murals on the walls, but it's still a nice ambience. I ordered the veal and shrimp carciofu, which was very good in taste, but when shrimp is in the title of the dish, I expect more than 2 shrimp. I also had to have them take back the dish for the artichokes, not one artichoke on the plate. I asked for the side of pasta without tomato sauce but I did not expect dry pasta, they could have at least asked if I would like some butter or cheese on the pasta. The oyster duo appetizer was outstanding. They have freshened up the menu from last time we were there and I would definitely go back, the kitchen just needs to be more attentive. Waitstaff was awesome!

    I don't typically like going out to dinner on any holiday as the food is not usually as good, the wait staff are rushed, and most places have a cut down menu... I'm happy to say the food on New Year's Eve was up to the usual excellent standard I've come to expect. Yes, it was a limited menu, but a good number of choices in all categories. I had veal with mushrooms and artichokes in a marsala wine sauce and ordered a side of spinach in olive oil and garlic. Totally delicious.

    Really great as usual. The waiter was mature, experienced, very professional, non-intrusive, just very, very good at his job. Ambience is attractive, muted, and comfortable. The veal was excellent. The smoked salmon appetizer was outstanding. Great melange of citrus, smoke, tart, and pungent. Highly recommend it. Little Iyaly quality without going downtown.

    We are regulars at this restaurant and normally say it is one of the most professionally run places we go. The server tonight was off his game. My wife didn't get what she ordered; and in trying to accommodate us it just took way too long. We will definitely be back as I know this is a rare occurence in that we have been going here monthly for 10 years and never had this type of experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    I took my beautiful wife to Liberatores Ristorante for her birthday on November 19 and found my entire dining eperience absolutely perfect. The ambience was quiet and romantic, yet invited our delightful chit chat without anyone else from other tables listening in. Our table had a clean, crisp, white linen tablecloth, a candle and fresh flowers. Our waiter was very professional, knowledgeable and never pressing or pushy. He catered to our every whim. The menu was extensive, but not to an extent that made our selection process hard to make a decision. Our waiter answered questions and was quick in making certain that we were very happy and content. Our food was devine. My wife ordered the grouper with lump crab meat. 5 stars!!

    SchwK
    Dined on 11/11/2011
    The appetizers came right out, and then there was a long delay before the entrees came out. We were told it was because they had a party in the other room. No offer of another glass of wine, etc. just it was now our problem, not theirs. When the entrees finally came out my mother's chicken marsala was virtually inedible--large chunks of tough meat. My husband's veal saltibocca was overwhelmed with salt. My daughter's shrimp were tasteless except for hints of iodine. My sea bass special and my sons' Argentine steak were good. At prices like this, you expect greater consistency. The service didn't live up either--we had a long wait between the appetizers coming out and the entrees. This place is resting on its laurels--AVOID!!!

    This is a beautiful, white-tablecloth restaurant. The quiet decor is soothing, and conducive to conversation. The four of us enjoyed our food, which was tasty and attractively plated. The pacing of the meal was spot-on, and our server (dressed in a tuxedo) was a professional. He made us happy to have chosen this place for a celebratory meal. We plan to return.

    this place presented itself online as a family friendly restaurant but when me and my friend arrived the lights were very low and it seemed like we were surrounded by older couples and groups who were celebrating birthday parties. The service was just okay and the food was very subpar. It seemed like it would be one of those restaurants featured on Gordon Ramseys Kitchen Nightmares. The neighborhood also seemed kinda sketchy.

    The purpose of the evening was to entertain an important business client. The food asks service were excellent. The waiter gave some helpful suggestions for appetizers and main courses. From seafood, to pasta, to steak, all of our meals were very good. We would recommend Libertore's to anyone for a special occasion, business meal, or just a nice evening of fine dining.
