Food was very good, but was very disappointed that they did not have the normal brunch for Mother's Day. Waitress said they do not offer normal brunch on Holidays??? We were hoping for the breakfast foods on the "BRUNCH" & there was none. Our reservation was at 11:00 for 8.

We decided to try this restaurant for the first time for a belated Valentine’s Day dinner. Ambiance was good, food was excellent, service was poor. He seemed frazzled when he had 3 other tables with couples of 2 only. The restaurant was not busy at all.

Water was always empty, he took my order for wine and didn’t ask my husband what he wanted, when we ordered dinner he forgot my husbands wine, we ordered dessert and he forgot to put it in, ordered coffee and he didn’t refill my husbands cup...

When we pay over 100.00 for dinner, I would expect service to be better and to get what we ordered.

Reservations at 5pm on a Wednesday, probably didn’t require reservations. Dinner was excellent and the meal took about 90 minutes from start to finish. Excellent food, service and quality. Will definitely be back.

Unfortunately we didn’t have very good service.
Although the food was generally pretty good, it wasn’t great. Lobster Ravioli was WAY too salty. Had to remind the waiter to get me a drink.
Certainly not worth the cost.
Disappointing. I was hoping for a better experience.

The food is always very good. The service was slow. I don't mind a leisurely meal, but there were long stretches of time where we were sitting waiting (e.g. to order dessert).

Took our family to DiSalvos for dinner over the Christmas holidays. There were six adults and three children, ages six, two and 10 months. I had requested two high chairs when I made the reservation and they were already set up at our table when we were seated. The kids loved the trains and the atmosphere. Our server was friendly and efficient and even took a picture of our family in front of the dining car. The food was delicious, but the Putanesca pasta was super spicy! The artichoke appetizer and fried zucchini were excellent. Highly recommend Crepes Gaetano and the Oslo Bucco.

We had a business guest from Norway and wanted him experience an dinner in unique setting. He was very impressed with the building. Also, the employees were very friendly and helpful. The invited our group to look around and explore before being seated. The meal was very good and the wine excellent. Also, the setting was good for having conversation. I would recommend that you give DiSalvo's a visit!

All was fine with food and service. But it was difficult to find the correct entrance to the dinning room. The main door had a sign indicating a wedding entrance only with a note to utilize the rear entrance. After driving around back and parking, we could not find the door to the dinning room. it seemed all doors had a note to use another door. It would have been so nice to walk through the grand concourse. Still we could return in a minute.

We were seated next to the kitchen even though there were plenty of unoccupied tables towards the center of the room. We chose this restaurant so that we could show our daughter the train car and the the tunnel leading into the restaurant but there was a wedding reception going on so we were unable to even go into that space. The food was good but the service was not. Next time I will call the restaurant directly to ensure that there is not another function going on at the same time.

Our son and family were visiting from NY and because we love DiSalvos, we took them here. We had wonderful meals, chicken gaetano (2), chicken romano, big meatball with spaghetti, chicken saltimbocca. The wedding soup is our favorite and theirs. The service was terrific, and Rick our server, was superb, as he always is. He remembered us!

The wines and beer list was plentiful, the ambience quiet and relaxing, not noisy. We just love coming here with family who are out of town, and then by ourselves on a regular basis.

The chef is to be commended on the cuisine, hot meals, all arriving at the same time, and it appears all made fresh.

Thank you to all who made this occasion so memorable for us!

We had 3 apps: Crab Cakes, calamari and mussels. The crab cake was excellent! The best around. I live in Baltimore for years, so I am very picky. The calamari was ok, the mussels were not fishy tasting (fishy tasting mussels are what I typically get around here) but they came in a flavorless broth. For dinner I had what the menu denoted as a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp; the salad was terrible-- wilted lettuce and something sort of like Caesar dressing-- but the shrimp were cooked well. My husband ordered fettucini alfredo. They dumped the pasta straight from the water into a bowl and slopped some heavy cream on top, didn't even toss it. Gross. The wait staff and service was outstanding!
