    My girlfriend and I went to dinner Saturday night, and it was great! We had a 7 pm reservation and we got in right away. The wait staff was very nice and quick. We ordered our meal and not even a few minutes later we got our salads and bread, and shortly after got our meal, we didn't have to wait long for anything really. The food was great, and services was beyond expectation, I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good Italian cuisine experience.

    Great food experience,six at our table with four different entrees. Food came out hot. The six members all said the food was full of flavor, hot, and just the right portion size for their appetite. The restaurant had quite a few large parties this evening and was quite loud. Aside from that our dining experience was very good. Thank you, bob

    Typically, the food and the service at Wild Earth is quite good, but on this night - the service was extremely slow - especially since it was a slow night. We had to wait for a drink menu and after the drinks were ordered it took about 15 minutes to get drinks! When the food arrived, it was only luke warm. The quality of the food was very good, it just was not hot. If this would have been my first trip to Wild Earth... it probably would have been my last. But I know that service has been better in the past. I only regret that I did not catch the waitress's name. I can only tell you that it was 7:00 on Thursday, and we were in a corner booth.

    Was actually shocked at how poor the service was. Our waitress must have been hiding as the patrons at her other two tables also looked disturbed by her absence. The food was okay.....nothing special. We expected better. Restaurant needs a sound barrier system as it is very loud. We won't be back, but will continue returning to Dream Dance. You pay a bit more there but you get what You pay for unlike at wild Earth. Hopefully changes will be made or otherwise we cannot see this restaurant being a success.

    Just had my second dinner at Wild Earth this last Friday evening. The food was terrific. My son and I shared the shrimp flatbread as an appetizer. Just terrific! I chose the seafood cannoli and my son had the lasagna. Both were just great! We ordered a bottle of chianti, and I usually don't care for reds. I loved it. Service was good, and we had a very enjoyable evening.

    We were the first table seated. The spice mix served with olive oil with the fresh rustic bread was OUTSTANDING. The salad was good, very fresh. The seafood cannelloni was very good - had leftovers. The flank steak was also good, but not sure we'd have that again. Thought the Sicilian strong beans served with it were hard. Willing to go back again and try something different. Very nice atmosphere.

    Would not go back again! Waited SEVERAL minutes for our waitress to come over. When she did her first comment was "oh, let me get you some bread" and she disappeared again for a while. Came back with the bread and Finally took our order. We got our appetizer BEFORE our drinks. We had to ask the helper to get them. Food was nothing special. Dessert was the best part of the meal. Would not spend my hard earned money there again!!! Totally disappointed.

    Our waitress had way to many tables to take care of and they were training new employees all on a Friday night. I would've thought training would be done earlier in the week. My food was not as described by the waitress and had to be sent back to the kitchen. My husband's food had hair on it and had to be sent back as well. I was a bit flustered with the fresh bread that they serve you as you wait on your entrée because they put way too much flour on the bottom of the pan when they baked it so that when you pick it up flour is just falling all over the place. Chunks of flour went in my mouth on my first bite which had me quite upset.

  • Horrible service and marginal food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 7/29/2014
    The marginal food was only eclipsed by the incredible poor service. From our time of seating is took 45 minutes to get cocktail. The food was old and should have been thrown away. Hard to believe a staff is so poorly trained and the food so bad for what was not really a cheap dining experience. Had this been a Wendy's or Burger King, that kind of service and quality "might" be anticipated.

    We made reservations and when we arrived the restaurant was about 60% at capacity in terms of seating. They placed us at the absolute worst table (right in front of the kitchen) possible and the noise from the kitchen was quite loud. We waited about 8 minutes before we were able to find a new table. Our waitress was friendly but slow. The calamari was perfect...crisp and flaky but not overdone. I had the shrimp scampi and it was good but too heavy on the garlic. The wine list was nice and reasonably priced. The crowd, well, almost all gamblers straight from the casino. Not may diners, we could see, that were not gamblers.

    The noise level is very loud. Music played was nice but washed out by the noise. My initial greeting and impression was "wanna be Italian restaurant ran by casino employees." Ambiance is lacking the intimacy of fine Italian dining. Service was not the quickest, but our server was pleasant. Woman that delivered the food could have been interchanged with a casino floor cleaner especially as she said nothing but grunted enjoy. My wife and I ordered martinis which were the worst $11 martinis in town! The crispy artichoke was a decent appetizer. The Parmesan chicken was average at best. Lower grade chicken, sauce tasted as pre processed instead of fresh, noodles out of a box and under cooked. My wife had the veal piccata which she said was good.

    Server lacked basic wine knowledge. Forgot to bring our drinks. My ceasar salad was warm, limp and not fresh. My artichoke appetizer was small and tasteless, again not fresh.
