Love Calandra’s. Never had a bad dinner there. The service is impeccable. Lovely atmosphere esp. with the water fountain and lights. Would highly recommend it .
we waited about 40 minutes for our check after we finished eating because our waiter never came back outside to check on us. we ended up having to ask a different server to get our bill.
fish is so fresh we had mussels, calamari salmon and scallops.
The calamari so so tender it reminded me of my grandmothers
If you like it lively you can dine in the bar area with live music
We sat outside as we met friends we have not seen in a long time
and wanted a quieter option.
A little pricey but worth every penny
WE were not impressed with the food. The Rice balls were good as an appetizer. The pasta was hard and the flavor was meek
The best part of dinner was the dessert.
I would not come back
The food was not good - the meatballs were dry and the meat was the cheapest quality meat. The lasagna was not even edible. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday and were extremely disappointed
Sensational service from the waitstaff and the manager. Food was outstanding. However, like most places post-Covid, a little pricey.
As always, the food was great, service excellent.
Always consistently good. Great food and great service!
Spot on as usual. Calandras never disappoints. Food and service were excellent.
Food was fabulous. Great service. Will surely dine there again.
First of all the parking situation was abominable prime time around 6:30 - 7 pm. We drove around forever until we made our own parking space, praying that we wouldn't get towed. Apparently, they must be renovating the hotel because there were so many shipping style containers taking up space in the back. Although Calandra's created an additional parking lot, it is not sufficient if the restaurant and hotel are fully occupied. The staff was extremely accommodating and there was ample space for indoor and outdoor seating. The food was fabulous and the portions were hearty. I would recommend the trout and the Mediterranean salad. My husband had the Caesar salad and trout and was equally as pleased. The only complaint we had, and I feel bad mentioning this given the pandemic situation, is we sat for 45 minutes without a server approaching us. Service was so slow and it took a long time to get our food. Otherwise, it was great!!
Service was great, food was outstanding. Ambiance was terrific.
The food was authentic Italian and very delicious! The ambience was great! Service was perfect!
Perfectly sized portions, with great flavor and texture combinations. And of course the bread!!
Calandras is our place to go for celebrations or when in the mood for great food. Never a complaint.
What a great find! Incredible food, wonderful ambiance in the garden with a fountain and flowers, had a birthday cake ordered that they picked up and served. James was an attentive server. Worth the drive
It’s always annoying when the waiter brings out to your table the main entrees , when all the bread and appetizer plates are still on the table. No excuse for this type of service when entries are in the 30 dollar range.
We continue to go back because it never disappoints. The food is great and so is the service. The outdoor dining is done exceptionally well. We will be back.
Obviously understaffed, Put in tent in rear no ambience. Table unset, missing chairs silverware so we stood there waiting. When clearing salad plates waiter took dirty fork and knives off plates on put them on tablecloth, Had beet salad and soiled tablecloth, Very unappetizing. food was void of taste. Had salmon Marrakesh as usual, not the same bland. Been there many times before pandemic. Service was poor. Waiters plopped plates down no finesse. Could not have been trained servers. Ordered espresso-used to get biscotti with it-waiter said don't have it anymore so he brought a large chocolate cookie that was hard as a rock and inedible. Could go on but perhaps instead of booking some many guests and being unable to professionally serve them all should have less guests and treated the way they used to. Will never go back.
Great meal! Fabulous atmosphere! Just upset about the tip being added automatically! It was only the 2 of us!
Waitress was rude and inattentive
. I would never have left
The 20% tip that had been added.
This was a return trip. After visiting this location with a friend and having had a great experience, I returned with three other friends after suggesting we go after my excellent experience the first time.
The second experience did not disappoint. The food was excellent and was served in a timely manner. We were not rushed.
I will definitely return.
Great place to have dinner! The food and service was excellent!
Typically a good experience, but recently the restaurant is over booked and under staffed. It made for a less than satisfying experience.
Awesome dining experience. It was a great evening and even though the staff was overwhelmed and the manager was holding it all together. It was one of the best evenings we had in a long time, between the music the staff taking care of us and the great music, it was just one of the best evenings we had out in years.
Our favorite go to when meeting family for lunch/dinner.
Great food, atmosphere and service is always excellent
Service, food, and ambiance were great. Would definitely return and recommend.
Great service & food
Enjoyed the bar menu and terrific food. Good socially distanced environment. Thanks
There are a few changes to Med Grill. The menu is limited and on this occasion they ran out of soup. Service was good but a bit stressed since the fellow had to run outside to the bubbles they have on the side lawn. The veal saltimbocca was prepared a bit differently than I usually see it. Three medallions stacked with a bit of cheese and mushrooms on top.
They add 20% automatically to the tab regardless of table size. we were two.
Overall OK given covid, there is space and staff is stretched. (was far worse at their sister rest last week) but not as good as it was prior to the pandemic.
The food at Calandra's is the best Italian food in this area. We were a little disappointed when the host seated us at a high table when we requested a low table. They asked us if we wanted a high t able and we said no then they led us to a high table. Further, the table was right next to where people were coming in and out which made us a little uncomfortable due to the fact you have to remove your mask when eating. Other than that, the food and our waiter were wonderful.
We’ve been to this restaurant many times and keep coming back. The food, service and ambiance is great.
We did not know that this place has a band coming every other Saturday night that has a group of followers (the regulars) and they are all in their 80s. We are in our 40s so it did not excite us much, however it was nice to see old folks tipsy dancing and enjoying themselves. The appetizers were generous portions and great flavor (calamari and eggplant). Entrees were just ok (pork scaloppini Marsala and Grouper). It was nice to get out but we would not come back. In general it seems that this place attracts the older crowd.
Very good service. Seated immediately. Prices a little high but taste was very good. Nice place
Enjoyed our first outdoor dinner at a restaurant since March 2020. Thank you for the terrific service
We ate outside under a heating lamp. It was nice to try out this place & we'll likely return as the weather improves.
Great covid experience
Food was amazing. We had a little corner to ourselves and felt safe throughout our dining experience. Everyone loved everything we ordered.
Wonderful birthday celebration. Starting with bread, cheese and olive oil and ending with Zablione
Great food and service! Love the ambiance at Calandra’s!
