    We had 8pm reservation, took 25 minutes to receive drinks. All 4 of our entrees got delivered at the same time and waitress never checked in on how the food was and had to ask if we received everything we had ordered. Not what I expected from a place like Extra Virgin. :/

    Extra Virgin is a great place to go for a quick drink or a fun dinner with friends! On Mondays they do wine and pizza night which should quickly become part of your weekly routine

    This was our first visit since the pandemic hit two years ago. We always loved the food here, but the changes to the menu towards sharable dishes transformed the whole restaurant. 4 of us were dining, and it was so much more fun to order many plates and share than to just order an entree each. We loved our server-"Nerema" if I'm spelling it correctly. She was simply a delight to interact with, so helpful with menu suggestions and cocktails. I didn't think Extra Virgin could become any better, but it has! Food, service, cocktails, it is a grand slam.

    First time dining at Extra Virgin and will be back. Food, drinks and service were all great. We had a party of eight and tried lots of items on the menu, about 10 dishes. Just the right amount of food for most of us. Need to go back to try the things I missed this time.

    Tapas were rushed and not timed well for enjoyment. Service was decent, but not at fine dining level. Very loud (sound buffering would hlep). Food was solid, but not the experience was diminished by these other issues.

    The service and food were amazing! Everything was well prepared and presentable when it arrived to our table. Our waiter made sure we had everything we needed and even made a great recommendation for wine! If you sit on the patio, be prepared for lots of outside noise (cars, police, ambulance, etc) but this did not ruin the experience for us!

    Had been wanting to visit. First Friday was the perfect occasion, and early table (on quiet side) at Extra Virgin started off a wonderful evening for us. Gracious, professional service. Attentive to our needs. Cocktails on point. Connecticut oysters we had never come across were absolutely delicious. Beautifully curated small plate choices were a delight. Pork belly, ceviche and roasted cauliflower followed. ***** We look forward to a return. Thanks so much.

    We sat in the formal dining area which was ok, but we would have preferred to sit in the bar area. We had the oysters which were fantastic. We followed that with the mussels and finished with the pork belly which was tender beyond belief. It melted in your mouth. Got the Chocolate cake and an order of churros to go. A fantastic dining experience.
