We waited over an hour to sit despite making a reservation. Food was great once we sat.

This was THE BEST pizza spot. It was so easy to get to by walking and subway is only a block away. For NYC pizza, it’s hard to beat that $1 slice... but this definitely surpassed all expectations! The staff was great with their menu and also did an amazing job with pairing wine with the different menu entrees.

This is a resturant that everything from the side salad to their pizza’s taste fresh and the menu is very well curated. A great ambiance for friends or a romantic date.

PS: The Spicy Honey pizza is to die for - and I’m not even a big spice girl.

Reserved a table for 8 for brunch and were seated in a small alcove from the main dining area, with beautiful lighting. Though it wasn’t a private room, the space felt intimate and perfect for our group to catch-up and chat.

Our dishes were also delicious and instead of dessert, the group shared the lemon ricotta pancakes and Italian donuts, both of which I highly recommend.

Service was excellent, timing was perfect, and we couldn’t have asked for a better Sunday brunch.

First time dining at Covina- had a very nice family lunch! Service was pretty good and food was delicious. I recommend the avocado toast and chopped chicken salad!

We came at an off hour and the restaurant was empty except for us which was fine. We had the cauliflower starter which was ok but skimpy for sharing. I ordered the fire roasted chicken salad. It arrived without the bacon or blue cheese as listed on the menu. Instead of taking away the salad and giving me one with all the ingredients, the server brought me a portion of cheese and bacon to add to the salad. He indicated that he was was giving me additional items if I didn’t get enough originally. I repeated there was No bacon or cheese in the salad. Basically, I thought they could have done much better in service and food prep. My husband enjoyed his chicken sandwich. I had enjoyed my dining at Covina previously, but doubt if I’ll be back.

We liked this restaurant very much. Comfortable seating, very good food and drinks. A limited menu but each plate our party had was very good. The tomato and mozzarella appetizer was amazing. We would definitely go back again

The restaurant was beautiful. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. The best grilled cheese I've ever had. Curried tomato soup and truffle fries were phenomenal. Very nice atmosphere. This is the place for lunch.

Salmon with Meyer lemon beurre blanc not as good as usual. The sauce tasted different and not as good. Too heavy on the tarragon oil and the sauce did not have the proper consistency for a beurre blanc. The portion sizes are ridiculously small for the price and always have been. $13 for Cauliflower Romesco and it's hardly enough to feel full. Seriously, adding four or more cauliflower florets cannot break the bank. The menu has not changed since I have been dining there. How about adding some new items or specials?. Also very hard to eat low carb, vegetable choices should be more varied with more selection. The simple garden salad was very good. Lovely selection of greens, fresh and crisp and the Meyer Lemon dressing was outstanding.

The food was excellent especially the 2 pasta dishes which were superb
The staff could not have been any nicer. They brought us truffle fries it taste and did not charge for a glass of wine when my friend did not like the bottle chosen from the wine list.
It was a wonderful dining experience.

Covina is our favorite neighborhood restaurant! We love to sit at the bar and dine during the week, and have had dates, engagement parties and birthday dinners here! The food is always spectacular, and the Spicy Honey pizza and the burger did not disappoint the other night!

This is my third time back at Covina and it never disappoints. It's also a bonus having the rooftop bar next door for a pre-dinner cocktail. The only thing I wish is that there was a bit more of a selection on the menu, although they have worked with me to customize dishes using things that are already available in their kitchen. I'll be back.

Heard good things about this restaurant, but was not impressed. The food was just ok. The place was not worth the price. Drinks were not great either. Service was fine. Main meals were ok. Pizza was very good. Appetizers were very disappointing.

This was my fourth time dining at Covina. The food was great as always. The service was definitely off during this visit which I find odd since it was 'prime time"...8pm on a Friday. Not sure what was going on but not up to standards I've come to expect from Covina.
