Great service, good food. Nice outdoor space
Our first experience (two weeks ago) was amazing. I figured our second would be just as amazing - since it was my birthday I decided to book again.
I was so disappointed with the service - we waited at least 20 min for water and another 15 min to order drinks.
The most frustrating part was the manager was sitting two tables away visiting with other customers. He had no regard for what was happening in his restaurant.
I was so upset that when I left, I went up to the manager and 1) confirmed he was the manager (he confirmed) and told him how disappointed I was that he had no regard for what his staff was doing and I only came back because our first experience was amazing. He didn’t even care, he just continued socializing with the guests at the table that he had been at for 45 min. So disappointing since I really did enjoy the food the first time.
Having been here about 6 times I can say the food- salads, pasta and pizza are consistently very good as is the service. We sat outside. They could make that area a bit more welcoming and maybe pay attention to details like cleaning the oil and vinegar holders. The bread is cold and dry- maybe charge for it and make it better.
The food was amazing.. Great date night with my fiance
Excellent Italian food!! Salads fresh and flavorful. Pizzas are creative and delicious!
Staff are accommodating and helpful.
Always enjoy our dining experience at 54 Mint.
We sat outside on a very pleasant evening. The service was great!
Overall, a big fat “meh.” Dishes ranged from really good (avocado tomato salad) to okay (mushroom and sausage pizza) to boring/inedible (pesto spaghetti). Presenting the bill with the table still full of dirty dishes is a complete non-starter in my book. Post-covid I cut every restaurant slack, but this experience was very sub par.
Just returned to dining out due to pandemic. Glad to come back to one of of our favorite dining spots.
Best Italian pizza and great overall food quality!
Went on a Sunday night with our teenage boys. Everyone enjoyed the food- kids especially liked the shrimp appetizer. Pastas were perfectly al dente and had good flavors.
The food was ok. None of left feeling very satisfied. The restaurant was clean and nice, however, and the wait staff was friendly and professional.
We had a very good meal. Our tastes varied from salad to pizza to pasta and meats and all the food was good. The salads were exceptional and the wine recommendations were spot on.
We had an excellent time here. Our server was delightful, and the food was unreal. From apps to dessert each dish and drink was fresh and bright and tasty. We sat outside and enjoyed perfect weather and quiet conversation. Would definitely return for a great meal and good time!
Great pasta and pizza. Wine menu is not a book like some other places but what we had was great (shame I can’t remember the name of it)
Food and service were perfect, their pizzas are so authentic, fresh and delicious, best crust!! Only complaint was our white wine was as chilled as I would’ve liked and it was a pretty hot day, but that was minor in comparison to the quality food and great staff. Perfect date night with the hubby.
Enjoyed the Avocado appetizer! The baked peach dessert was difficult to cut and share. Should have gone for the mousse which was delicious!
Family run business. Delicious.
The food was great. We had the baby kale salad and a pizza cappriociosa. The portions were generous for sharing, and the flavors were fresh and interesting. The service could have been a little more attentive.
Always great food and service
Service was attentive, professional, and very communicative. The food was delicious and up to a quality bistro standard.
My husband and I made an 'in person' reservation to eat at 54 Mint for the first time since the pandemic began. It was wonderful; everything we had (including the fried shrimp appetizer and the funghi pizza) was excellent. The staff were very nice as well.
One of our favorites in Walnut Creek. Great food and service, but easy on the wallet.
All the servers were so kind and we truly had the best pizza EVER! Incredible crust and top notch toppings.
The food was delicious! Servers were friendly. We will definitely go back.
Good food, good service
Waiter did not come by to the table once after ordering. Bus boy had to replace dirty plates (3), bring us Parmesan after asking, bring us serving spoon after asking. Used to love this restaurant but this will be the last time for us. Food was average at best.
Wonderful Italian restaurant with great food and ambiance. We try to visit as often as possible. Highly recommend. Indoor and outdoor dining available.
Great authentic Italian. Light crispy pizza dough. Fantastic. Service was ok but wouldn’t stop me from going again. Too darn cold to sit outside too. No heaters.
Nice location with outdoor seating but they miss the mark on service and quality. Our server was not at all friendly nor did he try to make our dining experience enjoyable. The pasta was not prepared well and arrived warm on cold serving dishes. They didn't come back to check on the food so we ate about half of it. We had dessert and they were tiny servings and were obviously not homemade. They need to work on the friendliness of the servers. The best part was the avocado salad ..............and the busboys!
The staff, particularly the main waiter we got had some serious attitude problems. Ruined the otherwise acceptable experience.
For prime time (7:30 pm) on Father's Day one would have expected to have some patronage for the business, however our party of 3 was only one of two tables occupied the entire time. The restaurant was extremely quiet as a result. Unfortunate, their menu options were very limited, the food was mostly bland with small portions but expensive prices considering everything was ala carte. The waitstaff was personable considering the recent loosening of the pandemic restructions.
Enjoyed the flavors of everything we tried, both appetizers and many courses. The pizza was really delicious and they have a nice selection of wines.
I am new in the area and I have been trying different Italian restaurants close to my new residence. The staff at Mint 54 in Walnut Creek were very friendly and accommodating and the food was very good. I would return.
Amazing food as always! And the staff was so nice and provided great service. Definitely will be back again.
Great service, delightful food
Great place to dine and get authentic Italian cousine, and to also enjoy Italian pastries in the mornings on weekends. Highly recommend.
Consistently good food, fresh pasta and fab pizza... they added new items to their menu
Good service, food was just OK - all of our dishes were underseasoned. Value/price pretty low in my opinion, but beeter picks in the area
Decided to try 54 Mint for my fiancé’s 30th. Showed up and the table was ready and perfect spot for outdoor dining. As guests arrived (9 of us) we had water and bread provided. One of our guests was mistaken on a menu item and the restaurant was willing to substitute. Overall wonderful and def would go back.
The staff is super not friendly, we were the only people in there and got stuffed in a corner. There was no music on and everyone seemed disheveled. They were out of every mixer we wanted for a drink and the bread was super dry. Should of paid attention to prior reviews but thought we would give it a chance. We left before food was even ordered
