Not as good as usual, but still a fan...
Everything about dining here was great. Great ambience, delicious food and friendly staff.
Nice outdoor dining atmosphere, and great food.
Checking in for our reservation was a bit hectic, as they were very busy and people many people were waiting around the front of the restaurant.
Good prompt service, food and drinks were great. The outdoor seating was very nice and had plenty of heaters.
Awesome! Very happy with all aspects of the experience. Thank you.
We enjoyed being out and the service was good! The burnt brussels were really good!
It was amazing, great food and great service
Excellent adaptation to virus restrictions with new tented dining area. Food remains imaginative and very carefully prepared. Service meticulous.
Service was bad- waited over 20 minutes for waitress to come and take the rest of our order, which came too late- after other food was served and eaten- should have canceled order
No manager; no customer service- I won’t be back
Excellent food and wine list, reasonably priced, great outdoor space, service was terrific, very high standards on Covid safety protocols, highly recommend.
Food was delicious, service was great. I will definitely be coming back here.
Good food, great service. Menu not 2 many choices and very few wines by the glass. Iverall pretty good, we ll be back
Great service overall! Staffs are friendly.
Patio is just right next to street. That’s the only bad thing.
We had a hard time deciding who had the best meal!
This restaurant used to be excellent prior to the pandemic. Now all you get is dirty glassware, floaters in your wine, and occasionally a substantial wait for your food.
We ordered salad and a pizza. The food was delicious the only bummer part was we asked for red pepper flakes and they didn’t come until we finished our food.
Hostess sat us in a quiet area off the patio and Emily our server was great!
Lovely experience. The server was not very attentive, but did offer helpful tips. Delicious food as always
We love this place and usually have positive experience. Good service, Good foods and drinks. We usually sit at the bar and the bartender typically are attentive and professional. The food comes out timely (even during busy times) and hot. This last experience was very different. We sat outside due to Covid restriction. The service was mediocre, the server dropped food on our table and chair. The food came out cold. The greasy food stained my purse and scarf. Without remorse, the server insisted that it was only Brussels sprouts and it’s no big deal. So overall not good experience.
Birthday great food
The food and server were fantastic! The only thing I was bummed about was where we were seated. I knew it would be patio dining only, and I specifically picked this restaurant because of their amazing patio. However, when I got there we were seated at the new side patio right along the street and parking lot. When I asked to move they said they had too many reservations that night to move us, even though our reservation was at 5:00pm for a party of 2. When we left at about 6:15 and walked by the nicer patio, there were many open tables.
Everything was delicious! I did feel like the salad servings were a bit small for the price. I had a chopped salad with salmon for 24.00 and it came in a small bowl. It also did not come with any type of bread. I think they could make a lunch salad a bit larger when it was a main course salad.
Great food and service
On Saturday night, Nov 14, Cucina Enoteca had many large parties that were seated indoors who were very loud and obnoxious. In addition, the server who was working one of those large tables decided to cut behind my chair en route to/from the large party. He knocked my chair multiple times as he was walking back and forth. By the third time in a 30 minute period, I asked him to please walk around instead of crouching behind my chair, and hitting my arm or shoulder. I never even received an apology from him, which was disappointing.
We had a great time and our server was lovely and accommodating.
Amazing food and wonderful service... I highly recommend.
Food and service is always great here!
Only served brunch not lunch on a Sunday. Food tasty but very over priced. Service was good.
We had a nice experience with good food, service and wine. The price of the food is a little high and the wine very high.
It was perfect!
We were 15 minutes late and they canceled our reservation, even though I called to let them know we were parking. We waited for a table for 20 minutes until they told us they had added us to the back of line as if we did not have a reservation at all. Should’ve told us they cancelled our reservation when we arrived instead of having us wait.
Good food, excellent outdoor seating. Good noise level.
Always a great experience at this restaurant. The food and drinks were excellent and the service was fantastic. We sat outside in the patio area and it was perfect.
Great except for sparse beer list.
Emily was a nice waitresses
They should serve the whole rib eye not just the middle
Enjoyed our meal very much.
Looking forward to a return visit.
I have a lot of grace for restaurants during these “unprecedented times” but my last experience at Cucina Enoteca was disappointing. My first issue was that our family of four was seated literally outside of the restaurant on the street. The table that was given to us didn’t even have planters to shield us from having to look at cars and shipping trucks driving by. I can almost forgive this if all the other tables were full but there was about 15 empty tables outside and in the patio. Fortunately, the hostess was able to move us to the patio after I asked for a better table. I’m a little confused as to why she thought to give us the worst table. Our waiter was less than friendly and didn’t seem thrilled to be working. Everyone’s dinner was ok, my pizza was burnt and borderline inedible...but I just wanted to leave so I didn’t mention it. Super bummed because this restaurant has always been a favorite of mine.
Steady standby. Atmosphere conducive to enjoying their very good food.
Outstanding service from the hostess to waiter. We were celebrating our daughter 's birthday and your restaurant was the perfect venue - great a food and cocktails, service was smooth - our waiter was so considerate and the pace was perfect. We didn't want to leave! Thank you for a great experience!
Great job in being careful during Covid. Our waitress was very attentive and kind.
