    The service was outstanding, which is hard to find these days. Our server had spot on timing of presence and recommendations, friendly and knew the menu well. The fois gras was delicious, as well as the specials (rack of lamb and seared black cod) - Risotto - was the absolute perfect al dente, the lamb cooked perfectly.

    We tried Timo for Miami Spice and were impressed. We both had good meals and said we would be back again. My quibble is that I strongly dislike at an upscale restaurant to have a TV distracting me in the background. Next time I would need to position myself differently but still feel it is disrespectful to serious diners.

    Our first visit to Timo won't be our last. Menu is very creative and most unusual. Started with potato salad instead of usual green salad. Outstanding. Mussels in a flavorful broth with best piece of garlic bread ever. Branzini in parchment well prepared as was the pork chop. Split baked Alaska for dessert which was another surprise on the menu. Wine list extensive and well priced. Only complaint was tables very close together which made it noisy. However the lack of music kept noise level bearable. Chairs are thickly padded as are the bar stools which made comfortable seating.

    Hadn't been to Timo's in quite a while but will return much faster this time. The food was very good but what made the experience exceptional was the high level of service that our waiter, Jonathan, provided. He is knowledgeable about the menu and wines and very accommodating... basically went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our meal and the overall experience. We had a lovely evening and look forward to returning soon.

    Our first two visits at Timo were just perfect ! However this third time, the food was good, but the service very bad. Except for taking our orders and bringing the check, we seldom saw our waiter, even if the restaurant was half empty. We had to pour our wine (battle over $80.00) ourselves during all the meal. This waiter did not seem interested at all in our clientele!

    Having booked a table for 4 at 9:00pm on a Saturday night, I found it unacceptable to wait 45mns to actually get a table. Then, after ordering, we waited another 45 mns for our first dish to arrive on the table. Therefore, from 9:00pm to 10:30pm, and without even receiving any kind of bread, that kind of wait put a toll on the ambiance of the dinner. On a good note, our waiter was very professional and courteous and the food was excellent. Too bad the waiting time ruined it for us...

    I didn't expect the waiter to get our order right, because we asked so many questions and he didn't write anything down. But everything was perfect! Food was delicious. The service and attention from everyone - from the water boy to the manager - was outstanding.

    The food and service were great but the air conditioning went out mid meal. It was unbearable. A friend of mine told me that the same thing happened to her the last time that she was there. We got nothing more than an apology and an offer of complimentary ice cream for desert. I will never go back there again

    Loved this restaurant. Bread basket wonderful, Caesar salad cold and crisp and the 2 pasta dishes ordered were delicious. One was whole wheat pasta with goat cheese and roasted tomatoes the other gnocchi with veal. My Bronzino was served over asparagus and wrapped in a light filo. The yummy dessert was macadamia brittle and ice cream with bananas. We would definitely go back even though quite a distance from where we live. The service could have been more attentive and polished but he did try to accommodate when asked. Please don't take dishes from table till we are all finished eating. My pet peeve. Why aren't the helpers told this?

    First I want to give restaurant good rating, but on the second thought decide that with menu prices Timo should serve better ingredients and bigger portion. Caesar salad you shouldn't create again. Restaurant must buy good anchovies and make it right.2 scallops with tea spoon of polenta for $18 too expensive.Grill branzino is very good, will highly recommend.

    My family has been dining at Timo's for years. The food is always great with interesting changing menus. However, on our last three visits there have been notable lapses in service regarding the timing of course delivery. Without fail, every course delivered three out of four dishes leaving one person with no food for lengthy periods of time. This happened again this past Saturday night with the restaurant not even half full. One appetizer was late, one main course, a side dish, and finally a dessert. The dessert delay was extremely frustrating. One person ordered the baked Alaska. 35 min later it arrived without another, non-baked Alaska dessert which came 10 minutes later, all marring what was otherwise a pleasant meal.
