Went there for Bday dinner their menu doesn't have a lot of options on it didn't like the fact that all dinner entries came with fries or onion rings and no veggies and I wasn't able to switch out the fries for anything else! Must say the food isn't bad but just average their sushi roll was pretty good and their specialty drinks a majitos were great but I believe this placed is way over priced

I’ve been there many, many times. This time my salad was a huge disappointment. It was missing my favorite ingredients that are listed on the menu. Made for a VERY BORING salad. I will have to question the waiter every time I order to make sure what is stated on the menu is actually on my plate. Very frustrating.

Fish options are delicious. Fresh and tasty. Vegetable sides were also great. Service was also outstanding. Never had to ask for a drink refill, as the server brought each refill before I finished the previous one!

The one thing that has kept us from frequenting this restaurant in the past is that the layout and tables give a very cramped feeling. This is still an issue, but the food is fine and the service was good

I have been here before. This time I had the seafood trio-small lobster tail, crab cake, and salmon.
All 3 were very good. I also had the individual chopped salad. I usually ask for more dressing on the side. It is a nice option to have "individual" portions. That way everyone can have the salad they want to have.
My friend had the special which was pistachio crusted grouper. It did not have much of a flavor.

The food is good. The service are friendly yet professional. The menu allows you to dine there for lunch, dinner and special occasions at a reasonable price.

We sat in the bar area which we alwAys do . Our server had been there a long time and he is just the sweetest and does not get upset with us asking for many changes. I️ had the chopped salad with shrimp and of course finished the entire big salad cause it’s my favorite. My friend had a shrimp cocktail which had huge shrimp and very fresh. I️ have been here so many times and have never been disappointed. Wish u had. Better candies on way out. Like little chocolate mints.

We are frequent diners when in town for a few months and the general manager Brian always make sure we have our desired table.
All the servers are professional and friendly. My skirt steak, the white fish and the salmon are delicious.
We make sure we are there dining every week and will miss it when we go back to Florida.

We have dined at Di Pescara many times. This time the service was not good. We waited about 45 minutes for our entree. One of the managers did come over after my husband complained, and offered us free deserts. No one ever explained as to what happened.

The service was good . We ordered the Tuna tartar appetizer and then split the pecan crusted grouper. The quality of the food was excellent and portion size was generous even after we split the grouper. We both left happy.

The food was pretty good, although a little on the salty side. The ambiance was pretty loud so having a date night was not very romantic. Fast service, almost too fast. We felt a little rushed so we couldn’t sit and enjoy the date as we would have liked. I think this place is better suited for casual friend get-together rather than a date.

We always enjoy the 3-5:30 Supper Club menu that is truly a bargain. Someday I hope to get beyond the first menu item the excellent whitefish. My husband always has chicken parmigiana. The waitstaff is excellent. The front desk again did not register us as Open Table and I had to call when Open Table asked why I didn’t show.

Sat for 20 minutes before asking if we wanted cocktails. Another 30 minutes to take food order. My friend didnt like her food, tastes like it had sat for a while so sent back and ordered a steak which she liked. My steak which I usually enjoy I didn’t tonight. Whole meal was off. DiPescara is our go to place but what a huge waste of money and time.

My wife and I got together with a (doctor) friend of mine and her husband.
We very much enjoyed our visit and the foods that we were served.
I had a huge piece of chicken parmigiana. It was delicious. My wife had
one of the significant Di Pescara salads and a piece of fish which she
very much enjoyed. Our server was very good. The prices were reasonable.
We will certainly return.

nice restaurant, excellent food, outstanding service, but it is so loud in there that I really had to yell in order to be heard at the table. it was packed and tables were pretty close together. I had whitefish and my husband had a steak. Both were excellent. It was his birthday and he somehow got two desserts! Probably would come back during the week to see if the venue is quieter.

Service was lackluster. Not rude or anything but very very slow on an average night. Restaurant was not overly busy or slow. Angry lobster roll was low on flavor and very disappointing. This restaurant has too good of a menu to be serving something like that. The crab and shrimp sushi roll was very good though. I would definitely order that one again. Key lime pie came as a round mini pie rather than a slice. Which was excellent because it meant more of the delicious crust.

Our table was ready and on a Saturday night that means a lot. 4 people had 4 different meals and everything was very good. My skirt steak was tender cooked perfectly and tasted delicious.
We were all comfortable and stayed 3 hours without being chased out.
Great evening.
