It took a long time to be seated and when we asked to sit outside with the umbrella up he said they were broken. ALL of them. It also took a really long time to have our orders taken. The food was nice and we sat outside in a shady area after asking nicely to avoid the sun.

Dined outside on Saturday 4-24-21. The weather cooperated although we did have a space heater nearby, which was turned on as the evening progressed. The service and food were both outstanding. We have never had a bad meal at Arugula. They always have a salad, pasta, meat, fish special. The tables are a bit small for all the plates otherwise no issues, we'll be back.

A comfortable BYOB establishment. They were kind to offer glasses and cooler. Dinner menu a little pricey when compared to area restaurants but food was delicious. Had a rainy and cooler evening but they have outside seating that would be nice in better weather.

The restaurant was very accommodating as we requested to sit outside. We went to celebrate my dads birthday; our server, Dennis, was excellent and the rest of the staff was courteous and helpful as well. The food was great; everything tasted so fresh. Our dinner overall was was a delightful experience.

We were disappointed to see that the restaurant was nearly full despite state requirements to limit seating due to the pandemic. We'd eaten here before on their patio. The inside dining room was extremely noisy. Food was very good, but not great, though the price was very fair. Appreciated they served fresh bread and bruschetta before the meal. Service was good.

We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time. It was so noisy, we could hardly hear our waitress telling us the specials. She was pleasant, but not very attentive. When the meal was over, we had one of the bussers ask if we wanted coffee or desert.

The food was very good and was served piping hot.

Overall, I am not sure if I would recommend.

We are regulars at Arugula are have been there 2x in 3 weeks so far this month.
First time we had to wait for a 7:45 rezi for 4 after being early - to be seated finally after 30 min of waiting and being the only people in the lobby area. Then watching a 6 top - walk into the restaurant 15 min late for their 7:45 rezi and they were immediately sat.
Kinda sad - we asked why we didn’t get that table as they were late - what’s the point of a rezi?
We love the food all the time.
This was just disappointing as we had raved about Arugula to our first timer friends on their Birthday.

Arugula has done a wonderful job serving clients during Covid. Tables are distanced, servers are masked, and the menu is well balanced.

Very happy to be back. I had the radicchio/endive salad which was excellent.
My veal dish was a bit dry. Service was good and we felt very safe tables were nicely spaced. We will be back I think everyone is ramping back up.
