    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/4/2008
    1. Wine served in chipped glass (on bottom). Fresh wine refused by woman behind bar. Wanted to charge for a new glass. Belligerent. Argued with my friend. 2. Medium sized cockroach crawled from the tabletop to my friend's shirt during dinner. Disgusting! NOW staff is attentive. Claimed restaurant doesn't have roaches. Comped appetizers and two glasses of wine on the house. Moved our table away from the wall. 3. Service people (waiter/busboys) basically nowhere to be seen throughout most of the meal despite half empty restaurant. Customers searching for help. 4. Bread good. Grilled chicken - fine. Cannot recommend this restaurant even without the cockroach - inattentive/belligerent service. The woman behind the bar is very rude.

    I have been to Pescatore many times. The service has gone downhill. I had to cut my fish with a knife! Have you ever had to do that before? Probably not. I left hungry with my stomach rumbling. I will not be going back anytime soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 5/11/2008
    Pescatore was a wonderful choice for our Mother's Day brunch. They made us feel welcome -- even the three kids we had with our party of nine. We were very pleased that they offered both a brunch menu and their regular menu. The food was good and was presented nicely, and the prices were reasonable. The only down-side to our meal was that the service started off to be quite attentive but did wane as the meal went on. It was hard to order dessert, get our tea & coffee, etc.! But we did chalk it up to a very busy Mother's Day crowd. We live in the neighborhood and will surely go there again!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIP
    Dined on 5/8/2008
    The food is always consistently very good at Pescatore and while I like it for the neighborhood ease and the food, it is getting louder and louder each time I go. The noise level makes it hard to hear over the tables and the tables are very close together, so in some cases you can hear the person at the next table better than you can hear those at your table. The other note is that while the staff is competent and nice, they rarely follow-up with the table (how is everythingm etc) and they are usually a bit brisk, in a polite way, obviously very busy. Suggestion would be to see if there was a way to soften the room so some of the sounds were absorbed and it would be a bit quieter. It would make the dining experience more enjoyable.

    I planned a surprise birthday party for my friend last week and the staff were very helpful. Starting with the lady who called to confirm my reservation, to the hostess, Fabian, who made sure we got a table outside and the servers who gave us a pleasant dining experience. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Overall, the group and the birthday celebrant had a wonderful time. Thanks Pescatore!
