We made a last minute 730 reservation of a Friday night and it was worth every second. We were seating in a room where lovely music was playing. Our waitress was so kid and knowledgeable and helped us make decisions about the menu (which we needed because there is so much amazing stuff on it). The gnocchi sampler is a MUST as are the sweet potato gnocchi in the Gorgonzola cream sauce. For first time diners here we definitely can’t wait to come back. Everything was delicious!

Service was excellent. Food was okay but I went home and got sick. Not sure what it was that upset my stomach.

As always, the food at Bistro Di Marino was impeccably prepared, of absolutely wonderful taste, just teeming with seafood in an amazing cream sauce and the servings so large that I had to take half of my entree home to enjoy last night, since it reheated well. Our Server was very pleasant and attentive and even the management went overboard to make sure that my lady and I were happy and pleased.
make sure to use Open Table to make a reservation, if you wish to be assured of a table. Even though there are three interesting rooms, it fills up quickly.

The food was delicious, no doubt about that. We ordered everything from appetizers to dessert. The few issues we had were:
1. Parking - we had to park 2 blocks away because parking is extremely limited around the area.
2. The food came out a little more than luke warm, the soup and the main meals could've been hotter.
3. It took FOREVER to get our waiter to come over. He never checked in on us and my husband had to ask another waiter for a soda that he already asked of our waiter twice. Yes, it was getting busy towards the end of our meal but that doesn't excuse poor service.
Overall, I probably won't be going back any time soon. I would recommend it, however because the food was good and it's a nice night out.

Happened to get the email about the patio being open with the heaters going. It was a great night. Food was great, can never go wrong with the gnocchi appetizer! Lobster fettuccini , my husbands favorite!
Thanks to our server Patrick and also to the manager Chris! It was a busy night and they took great care of us

Upon arrival we were asked if we would like to
sit outside and assured that they had heaters. We asked what table we would be seated in if we chose inside and were shown a table near the door, not quite what I had in mind,
We were celebrating our 40 th wedding Anniversary. We chose outside which initially was great, as the evening progressed the heater decreased in intensity, we were told that there was only one propane tank left and that the table behind us would need it. All would of been fine, except that it seemed exceptionally long to get our entree, which would of been fine if it were not getting chilly. It also seemed that a long period of time before we even saw our server.
Bistro Di Marino is one of our favorite restaurants, the food was delicious, just chancy sitting outside in October.

We requested outdoor seating but it was full when we arrived for our reservation at 6pm.
We were seated at an inside table and had a wonderful meal. Everything was very good
and our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the dishes.

Food was fabulous,however our server after clearing our plates disappeared for 35 minutes. We decided to get up to pay at the hostess booth and were thanked for coming in. I had to ask for the check since our server forgot. I realize they got extremely busy but that doesn’t excuse the service. We’ll come again and hopefully the situation will be rectified since we really enjoyed the food.

Great place for dinner. The gnocchi is amazing! We got the sampler with 3 different varieties. The pesto and eggplant were my favorites. For dessert we shared the gelato sampler. The chocolate and salted caramel were out of this world! Our server was attentive and knowledgable. The atmosphere was great too. There's outdoor seating available too.
