We have dined here on several occasions and have always been completely satisfied with the food, service and Facilities. However, this last time there was food all over the floor around our table and the table next to us. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a few days. Overall this is an excellent place to eat

I'm sure since it was the beginning of Restaurant week, it was really busy. But our service was terrible. We never got bread. Our drinks were only refilled when we flagged her down. We felt ignored. When we go back, I will make sure we don't get that server again. She was terrible.

This was our first time and our last. We came from downtown because it was on the list for restaurant week and we wanted to try something new. First we were seated in a freezing corner and they weren’t too happy when we asked to move but admitted their heater wasn’t working in that room (it was 10 degrees out). Then our server was on his first night in training and I can sympathize, I was a server for years, but he didn’t know up from down. We got starters long after entrees and desserts in the middle of entrees. The plates piled up and were never cleared. The service was really distracting and just overall it was a pretty poor experience. The short rib ravioli was great, risotto was not good.

Overall it was a good choice. We went for restaurant week and thought the value was good. The quality of the food was good. We had a very nice waitress- a bit slow at times but kind and interested in ensuring we had a good experience. They did not have a cold bottle of the sparkling wine we ordered and were offered an lesser quality option. We ended up ordering a higher priced bottle. In my experience, I would have expected a slight discount for the inconvenience but no discount was offered. My cousin’s steak was slightly over-cooked (asked for med-rare, received med to med-well) but my shrimp were cooked perfectly- not overcoooked and rubbery. Dessert was delicious- we had the cannoli trio and the cheesecake.

I have been wanting to try Cafe Verona for a while. Very nice looking place..the smell of the food was wonderful. Got there 30 mins early to try the bar, but there were tables available so we got seated. Our waitress must have been new....we didn’t see much of her and she was not very knowledgeable of the menu. Appetizers were very good. We both ordered the steak, mine was very under cooked borderline raw. My wife’s steak was perfect! I was going to send mine back but we didn’t see our waitress for some time so I just ate my potatoes and green beans and took the steak home for leftovers. I will say what I did have of the steak if was really tasty and my wife loved hers.
So with all this said we will go back one more time and try, but if we receive the same service we will not go back again and I will update this post. I do feel it was just an off night for the Cafe Verona staff, but we will see.

Food was mediocre. I usually get the Mac and cheese with the sirloin which is amazing but since there was the restaurant week menu decided to give the steak a try. It was bland and not very tender. Ordered the manhattan drink and it tasted like watered down whiskey and coke. Our server was new and he was doing his best but he could of used some help.

We went to Cafe Verona for News Years Eve and had a wonderful experience. Our server was Allie and she was very bubbly and friendly. She knew about all the specials and gave us really good service. Food was wonderful!

Seated by the window. Very cold. Service was not up to par. Servers seemed to be confused as to who had our table. Not very attentive. Not the experience was usually have there.
