Very attentive service team, we went closer to closing time ... so maybe a little over attentive but appreciated. The garlic bread side of marinara sauce is a must! Very cute date vibes. 2nd time visiting.

I took my wife to Catherine Lombardi for Valentine's Day. We had a great experience. The service was exemplary as was the environment. The food was good but from a value v price perspective it was above average but not exemplary. The wine choices were top notch.

Unfortunately Catherine Lombardi had some technical problems with the space so we had to eat downstairs in the steak house. Service was very slow, however the recommended wine was great and we loved the food.

Combined the steakhouse and the Italian restaurant into one super restaurant! It doesn’t get any better than this. Everything was outstanding. Wine, food, drinks, and service was perfect. I even ordered dessert, which I never do. So good. They do a great job. Get out and support them.

I know the menu has been cut down. (My guess is by 2/3.). The LEFT's menu is printed on the back to make it appear more. Prices seem higher. But most annoying was I felt that the staff was rushing us and intrusive.

Anniversary dinner ... Every time we've been here the food is outstanding, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere's top-notch. Some may think it's a little pricey but you're not just paying for the quality of the food but the entire experience.

Everything was delicious and with generous portions. I wish I could eat the lasagna with meat gravy every single day. Our waitstaff was so attentive and helpful with suggestions and descriptions. Their recommendation for me to try the Christmapolitan was spot on. I loved it. The restaurant was decorated very festively with holiday music playing in the background. It was just what we needed to get into the holiday spirit. Can't wait to go back again.

Had a great outdoor dinner last night. The king crab with truffle and risotto is crazy (good crazy) and so was the tomahawk ribeye. Great wine list and great wine guidance!

This is a terrific restaurant that has done an AMAZING job of adapting outdoor dining for COVID. This is the first time that the outdoors has not been festive and fun. But they set up a heater and table just for us. But it was not the same ambience. Would love it if the outdoor remained but they may be responding to what guests want for colder months.
