Outside seating is beautiful, staff is great, not to loud or busy and I get why. This place is extremely overpriced for mediocre pizza and pasta. They don’t have a big menu or lots of options and the food was overall a disappointment. I will not be back.
The servers were so polite and apologized for being shorthanded. Some had called out so they thought they were not being attentive enough. I told her not to worry, I was enjoying a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon. We had the only table in the shade so we thoroughly enjoyed the bread and the Avocado salad and a pizza. I got so full we even had leftover pizza for later that day.
I definitely do recommend Mint 54 to my friends and acquaintances. It is my favorite Walnut Creek restaurant. My husband and I ventured out last Friday evening for the first time since the pandemic hit and enjoyed a wonderful meal celebrating our anniversary. Mint 54 is on atop my list of "happy-making" places in town. Give it a try; you won't regret it!
Lovely outdoor seating area, attentive and friendly staff, delicious food.
Never disappoints! Everything was delicious, broccoli, pasta and pizzas! The new dessert was the perfect ending to a great meal!
It’s outdoor dining right now due to Covid so not really a full review for some categories. We done there at least once a month or every 6 weeks. The food is still pretty damn spot on for most dishes. Unfortunately their service has really deteriorated from 3 years ago 2 years ago and now. It’s been a downhill slide for 3 years now which is unfortunate. More attention to detail used to be paid but not so much anymore. Lost a bit of its appeal to be honest.
Nice food and place. Go for pastries and pizzas - they are awesome.
We've eaten here many times in the past and have ordered takeout a several times since the pandemic started. This was our first time eating on the pandemic patio and it was a great experience. The street is pretty quiet and the spacing between tables made us feel safe. The food was as wonderfull as ever. We had the Brocoletti brussel sprouts, Cavatelli pasta dish and the Calabressi pizza, all delicious.
Covid has put a damper on eating "out", but 54 Mint in Walnut Creek put the "fun" back. Food, drink, service were all perfect. the pizza "bones" appetizer was a great stroke of genius.
Yes, it had outdoor seating but out of 4 items ordered, the only one that was good was the brussel sprouts. Pasta not good, pizza-meh, and pricey for that. Service was very good. But overall not worth my time or money.
Food quality is consistently good. Staff is friendly. Service is quick!
Wonderful service, excellent food!
Our reservation was for 8 pm on a Friday night. At 8:15 they closed the kitchen. We could order only two pizzas and nothing else. They showed up with the check without even telling us that the kitchen was closed. We had to leave. All the other restaurants were open. Usually restaurants announce that the kitchen is closing!
Great food, can’t wait to go back when the dining room is open.
Excellent food and service.
Started with Salumi & Bombe Frites - both were excellent. 2 had the Ragu & 2 had the Cavatelli.. The Cavatelli was A+, the Ragu rating was a B..
As always, the Avocado Salad and Carbonara pizza HIT THE SPOT!
Excellent dinner and service from Victor. Our new favorite Italian restaurant in Walnut Creek. Also great for lunch!
Wednesday night fixed price is a deal. Great food.
Truly excellent food and service. Moderate portions at reasonable prices. My new favorite restaurant.
Wonderful food, excellent service in a down-to-earth environment. These guys know how to cook!
Wednesday’s are always a plus, free parking in the city garage one block away and the is a great prefix offering glass of wine choice of salad, choice of pasta or pizza $25. Food is delicious and service is great. Mickey is the best!
Everything was delicious! We found a new place to add to our favorite restaurant list. Was pleasantly surprised on how good every single item was. The staff was super friendly and enjoyed our experience overall.
Amazing food! The lamb chops were out of this world! Great service too. One of my fav places!
It’s Valentine’s Day, so I took my wife to the place with our favorite cannoli. First time eating in and the pizzas were delicious!
This is a go-to spot for us. Amazing food! Perfect wine!
Excellent, excellent food.
Outstanding Pizza and pastas - reasonably priced
Don’t forget to order the cannolis
Two of us shared an artichoke and sausage pizza, and mushroom pasta which were both delicious and generous portions. Our server was very helpful in recommending and suggesting the size of the dishes. We were too full to order dessert, but the tiramisu sounded good.
Warm, cozy, inviting cafe; delicious Italian food authentically prepared and reasonably priced; helpful, knowledgeable, friendly staff. What’s not to love!
A great choice for authentic Italian pizza. The other pastas are a fine choice too.
We love this place!! The food is amazing!!
Great food and service - reasonably priced menu of pastas and pizzas. Looking forward to going back in the future!
Always a solid spot for authentic Italian in the WC area. Maybe the only?
Menu has many family options. My teens loved it. My husband and I loved their wine choices.
This is our favorite local place. Everything is so good and the staff is very friendly. We will be going here for their special New Yea’s Eve dinner. I am sure it will be excellent!
Their pizza is amazing and they always have some interesting Italian wines on the menu. This is a great, authentic place thats the only place in WC we will go anymore.
54 Mint is always very good. Fresh pasta and pizzas...cozy little bakery restaurant.
Yes ! Love 54 Mint ! It is like walking into your friends home with a warm welcome, happy energy and Italian ambiance. They can't do enough for you. The food is excellent and always feel so happy to have spent some time there. Thank you.
