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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
