The food was great as always but the service was terrible making for a meal that lasted at least an hour longer than it needed to. Tables around us were served much faster than us and several couples around us that arrived after us were on to dessert before we even had appetizers.

Chiara is definitely a worthwhile experience - unfortunately, we do not go as often as we'd like...but when we do, we know that each course will be special. From the appetizers and wine through dessert, it's a delicious and lovely meal. A favorite in our area!

This is a most remarkable restaurant that NEVER fails to satisfy! From a distinct and different vibe with each visit (either vibrant or sedate), an alert and totally professional waiter [yeah, Matt!], to a consciously expanding Mediterranean menu with unique offerings (this time we savored a delicious chicken liver pate, yummy PEI mussels, followed by scrumptious cod, potato gnocchi bolognese, and topped off with creme brulee; BTW, the cocktails and wine didn't slouch either!), Chiara Bistro is a must visit for serious food lovers. At present, one of our FAVORITE dining establishments! Mmmm-mmm grrrrreat.

Excellent dining in all respects. The Valentine Day's menu was not posted on their website. It would have been helpful.

There is such attention to detail with the food and the service that it makes every meal at Chiara amazing.

I took three coworkers and had an amazing meal with a very informative waitress. Can’t beat the menu or the price. Will be back.

We had a wonderful time for my son's 35th birthday. Everything was delicious. Timing was perfect. Waiter was polished.

Tracy, our wait person, was so knowledgeable about the menu and was friendly and accommodating. She made our birthday celebration a meal to remember! Our dinner selections were outstanding, too.

Food was good if a little pricey. We go there a lot and enjoy the place.

Everything was delicious ..our waitress was fantastic..amiable, helpful, and fun. Our table was pretty close to the next one, but other than that, it was a perfect night!

Had a great time as always last night at Chiara. The food is consistently outstanding, we had a few people get the gnocchi which is perfect every time and also had the cod and steak special that had every last bite eaten. Matt is an ultra professional server and I’m always happy to sit in his section, and also great to see Tracy last night who is part of a tremendous service team. Got to take some friends there last night who haven’t been there before, I’m sure they’ll be back.

I have been to Five Star more times than I can count, so this review is long overdue.

I am totally a fan. I love this place.. I've gone to Five Star for years so people come and go but 98% of the time the service and food is perfect.

The gnoche is out of this world soft and explosion of tastes. Ordered that as an appetizer. For entrees, the Five Star the salmon or scallops are solid choices. The lobster roll is my favorite but it is out of season.

I have taken countless numbers of people (family, work colleagues , friends) to Five Star and they have never been disappointed.

The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The only thing I can complain about is there is not enough room between tables
