Had a very pleasant anniversary lunch on a rainy April day. Nice 2-person booth kept noise level manageable. Loved house salad--tasty and simple. Tuna tartar was also nice--it sits on a large hunk of avocado which my hubby didn't like, but happily ate around it. Fish and chips were yummy. Thoughtful and delicious chocolate dessert was a treat to us from the restaurant--very nice. We will come again soon!

Not a good experience. The table should have never been used to seat guests. A two top with only L shaped bench seat. So close to next table we could have eaten off their plates.

The waiter missed parts of requests. Assume it was due to volume of table next to us.

You are usually better than this. Disappointed. It was my birthday.

Food and Service was great. Consistently good! Initially had table that was literally on top of next group. But moved so All was ok

Asked for extra sauce. GREAT update in larger bowl. Previously they give small cup we have to keep asking.

As usual, our lunch was delicious. We shared a chopped salad that, at lunch size, was large and excellent. My companion took the left-overs home. Our entrees were wonderful. My companion had the crab appetizer. It was perfect. I had the crusted tilapia. Always really good.
The service was outstanding. Our server kept giving good tips about what to order. We had a long talk that was beneficial to both of us. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

We dine there often and have had the same waiter the last 3 times. He is nice but slow, forgetful, unapologetic, and never checks in throughout meal. Will request not to have this waiter.

My friend and I ordered fish and found it just average. The key lime pie was horrible. It tastes like there was Swiss cheese on top. The cherry pie with ice cream was very good. For the prices, we thought the food wasn’t worth it.

Great food, reasonably priced...poor service. I have been here a few times over the years and the experience unfortunately has been the same. Between not getting my glass of wine until I had almost finished my meal, to waiters talking to each other across multiple tables, almost all aspects of the wait staff behavior made it difficult to enjoy my meal, despite the undeniable quality of the food. When I mentioned I went there to a co-worker she said she had the same issues...enjoyed the food but not the experience of eating there. Very unusual for a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant.

We went during Passover. Seemed they just catered to ordering the Passover meal. I had the driest crab legs I have ever experienced, very bland also very bland flavorless corn & potatoes. For 60.00 they should have been great!

Server was not very attentive. Runners were much better. Server did not ask if we wanted desert. Just assumed that we wanted the free chocolate cake for my wife’s birthday. He was polite just was more attentive to the larger parties he had.

The Supper Club menu is one of the best values in town. For $19.95 you can choose a great salad or soup many entrees and a mini dessert. Someday my husband and I will get past our usual almandine whitefish and chicken parmigiana. We always have enough leftovers for another meal.

We can almost always count on Di Pescara for delicious food and excellent service. This visit did not disappoint. The wait staff was helpful and efficient. We had a special request for the food preparation and it was handled perfectly. And because it was a little later on a Sunday evening, the noise level was very low. All in all, a great experience.

We had a reservation at 9:45. Had I known that the restaurant closed at 10:00, I probably wouldn’t have gone. A restaurant of this caliber, a Lettuce Entertain You, expecting to serve someone is 15 minutes, is really not ideal! The waiter made sure to tell us the restaurant was closing, and while he was good, he kept saying take your time but at the same time, was rushing us. I do not think it’s a good idea to let people make reservations 15 minutes before closing time. I dine out a lot, and frequent Lettuce Entertain you restaurants and this was not a good experience.

We came here for our first wedding anniversary. The food was so delicious. We shared the grilled artichoke, very tasty. They have a great atmosphere here and the servers are professional and attentive. I ordered the seafood trio while my husband had the ribye steak, both were amazing. They even gave us free dessert for our anniversary! We would definitely go here again.
