Had a fabulous time—excellent drinks, great apps, fantastic food!
We had a wonderful time at Chiara. It was our second time there and the food, as before, was outstanding. The trout special was quite delectable as was the crème brûlée. The service is very good. The wait staff were quite attentive and there was never a need to wait for or contact them. While it's above our typical price point for dinner, it is definitely worth it for special occasions.
As there is little about Chiara Bistro that would warrant describing it as Mediterranean, the description should be removed. It is run of the mill American cuisine. I ordered the steak and at $38, it was fair. It was accompanied by a very small amount of butternut squash and turnip, which was fine because the vegetables were so over salted as to render them dangerous to consume if one has hypertension. The noise level was so loud that we had to shout to each other to be heard. Worse yet, there is no anteroom to the door, so every time it was opened patrons were treated to a blast of brutally frigid wind such that the woman at the next table refused to even unzip her full length park. We won't return.
Although we had to wait about 30 minutes from the time our drinks arrived to see our waitress again and order dinner, we didn’t really mind because we were busy catching up. All of the food was amazing and we plan to return!
Food was excellent. Service was outstanding! We stayed quite late in the evening, and no
one rushed us to leave.
This was my third visit to Chiara this year and I enjoy it more every time. Excellent food menu service and ambiance. A real treasure.
We had been at Chiara’s before, but not for some time, and thought some changes had been made to make it cozier and less noisy. The food was absolutely excellent, and served in the right proportions, and our waiter — I believe he is the beother of the owner/manager — was very attentive and curteous! All in all we know we will be back for more of the same!
It took 20 minutes for someone to take a drink order. Then the waitress poured a beer that overflowed onto the table but she didn't even realize it until we asked to something to clean it up. Food was good but service was very slow all night.
I eat here often simply because it's the best food within twenty miles in a very professional and welcoming atmosphere. Great place for special occasions also. Wonderful wine list.
Our first visit and we had a great time. The service was exceptional, and the food delicious.
We will be back.
Always deliver a consistently excellent local casual experience.
For over a decade, Chiara has been exceeding my expectations every visit. They do everything right. Steve,Michelle and the entire staff are always so welcoming.
Very good. Would go again...
Salad was overly seasoned with salt.
Shrimp were over cooked and tough
We ordered the Long Island duck with warm cherries, butternut squash and string beans. The flavors of the sliced duck breast, butternut squash and cherries complemented each other beautifully. For dessert, we had apple tarts also so tasty and not too sweet. It was a totally DELICIOUS dinner!
