A real disappointment. Expected something a little bit more authentic. Instead the service was slow. The fairly bland...much like something you would throw together in 5 minutes after a night out.

Argia's never disappoints. The food is always delicious and the servers are always pleasant and efficient. You can't go wrong.

The Lobster-stuffed pasta was excellent, partly due to the wonderful Lobster Bisque. The Ribeye steak was cooked just right for Medium Well.

Valentines Day and we didn’t feel rushed as is often the case on VD. Argia’s food - I had the lasagna, my wife the chicken - well prepared and huge portions. Calamari and Gorgonzola salad nicely prepared as well - and very shareable. We had forgotten how much we enjoy Argia’s and were pleasantly surprised that they do not succumb to the usuals VD letdown.

The good food and service were overshadowed by the horrible noise level. It was so loud that our table of four could barely hear each other. The unacceptable level of noise ruined our meal. We will hesitate to go back.

This is the second time my wife and I dined at Argia's. Very nice and excellent wait staff, but not pushy. The owner personally came by to talk with us, and check if our experience was positive. A bit noisy, but it was a Saturday evening crowd. Good size portions of both appetizers and main course. We'll definitely come again!

Great food, great wine—-but Friday night was too busy, crowded and LOUD. We were hoping for a nice catch up evening with old friends we ate dinner & left all with in two hours. It was so loud.

This has become our family's favorite place. We are a large family, with adult children, grandparents, babies and toddlers, and the staff is always so welcoming even though we are so large. Always, always great service. Always great wine, and the food is amazing! We have never been disappointed and will continue this tradition. Thanks!

We had a reservation but were told when we arrived on time that there would be a wait for our table of 30-45 minutes. They could not honor our reservation. We were than told we could sit at the bar and get service. We were very hungry and didn’t want to wait so we tried for the bar. Both the dining room and bar were very loud. We did not get acknowledged at the bar for about ten minutes. It took another fifteen to get water. And then another fifteen to get a food menu because “they didn’t have enough” according to the bartender. The food came out fast and was just ok. Colin the bartender was great but clearly swamped with a full bar plus four tables. The manager came by a few times but never acknowledged the fact they were not able to accommodate our reservation. She just said they were busy cause of a show and laughed it off. I go to this rest every few weeks and normally everything is spectacular. But I’ll think twice about returning. Poor customer service from the host and manager and lack luster food just are not worth it. The only gem? If you go ask for Colin. Very nice guy.

We have been going here for years. The other night we had dinner there for my father’s birthday. They made a dish that wasn’t typically on their menu for my dad (carbonara) and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food, Service, and atmosphere. The mural of “Good Govenment” on the wall is beautiful and creates a warm setting to dine. Finally, the desert “Peanut Butter Bomba” was the best peanut butter desert I have ever had in my life. We all shared it and found it amazing. The owner gave it as a gift for my father’s birthday. This is truly a remarkable, family owned restaurant that has been and will remain a favorite of ours! I enthusiastically recommend eating here.

I love to support local businesses but this place was really too loud and we were disappointed by the service. My husband had to ask for his entree and the server added gratuity for a party of 5, which is unusual. We could barely talk due to volume (Friday night) and we felt very squished into the center of the room even though we made reservations. The food was quite good though the salad dressing was a big heavy. Overall we were expecting something better for the price. Sorry...

This was our first visit to Argia's. We were meeting friends and didn't want to go to a mall so close to the holidays, but needed gluten free options so we picked Argia's based on online reviews. We were not disappointed. Aside from the noise level (which tapered off as it got later), the service and food were excellent. The staff went over and above to make our first visit memorable, the chef was very accommodating and the owners were delightful. We will be back again!

Our daughter was given a Birthday card that she opened at dinner. In it was a springy butterfly that flew out of the card and onto the celling fan. Our server actually found a step ladder and retrieved the butterfly! Amazing. The food was also first rate.

We had a family group with six adults and a baby, and our server and the restaurant overall were very accommodating and attentive. Food was very good--one fish entree was slightly overcooked, but both the risotto and the gnocchi were quite good.

This is one of our local "go to" spots, and it did not disappoint. Kudos.

my first impression was less than positive, as our initial greeting by the host was without much enthusiasm, and after being seated, we waited for about ten minutes before our waiter approached and took our drink order. However, the service and delicious meals more than made up for the rough start. Our server was extremely charismatic, knowledgeable, and responsive. The meals were perfect; they were fresh and flavorful. We will definitely be back.
