Farfalla - Westlake Ratings and Reviews
Service was very poor! We were given water and told about specials very soon after sitting down, then after a long wait had to call a different waiter over to take our order. Appetizers came at a reasonable time, but we waited 15 minutes for dinner. My dinner, the special risotto, came cold, several minutes after the other 3 dinners were served, but after waiting so long, I ate it anyway. It was very disappointing. The other 3 dinners were served warm.
I was staying at a nearby hotel and had a hankering for pasta, so decided to give this place a try since the reviews were really good. While I was eating the mediocre Caesar salad (chopped lettuce on top of what looked to be prices of soggy slices of cooked pizza dough, no anchovies to balance the lemon juice), the pasta was delivered to me a full 5 minutes before I was done with my salad, so it stood getting cold while I finished the salad. The pasta was just OK, no better than the stuff I cook at home with sauce from a jar. The glass of wine I ordered was overpriced in my opinion. The restaurant is OK, but not good value, and definitely not 4 stars...my meal for one person - salad, pasta, and one glass of wine - was over $60 with tip and tax.
The place was busy, middle of the dinner rush. Service was quick and responsive . Seated in the patio, a little cool and asked for the propane heater to be turned on, and was quickly warmer. Drinks were nice. I ordered the Veal piccata , this time it was a little tough, plate came to the table blazeing hot and probilly the cause, over cooked. Last time ordered it was wondetful, fork tender . The misses loved her dish. I plan on returning !
Although we had made a reservation and specifically indicated we were celebrating a birthday, and the reservation had been confirmed earlier in the day....we were offered no birthday dessert while other tables around certainly were. It was extremely embarrassing. The food service was not as up to par as it usually is.....a very disappointing evening as I think the food is usually outstanding and well priced.
The food was amazing! It was our first time there and the food didn't disappoint! Now the service on the other hand... We had a reservation and they sat us all the way in the back next to the bathroom and the wall where the kitchen was. From my seat I could watch the guy make salads. So that made me unhappy with the experience. The prices where defiantly reasonable for the quality and quantity.
A very nice and fun place to eat some unsophisticated Italian trattoria food .
The service is prompt and polite, the shaken drinks are well prepared, the pasta seems home made, generous and tasty, the dessert are traditional and expected, nothing wrong with this place. It is loud and kids misbehave around, but it is not the Ritz and we's American, so I guess it is normal.
This place was wonderful! Intimate setting, fresh made to order food, first class service, and a large beautiful outdoor patio are why you should have special date nights or special occasions here! Our server didn't just tell us about certain menu items but showed us pictures of the specials and desserts on his tablet. We could see a good portion of the kitchen and also see that all food generally went from the pan to the window to the table in a minute or less. Our food arrived piping hot and prepared and presented beautifully!
I have been to Farfalle several times and been very happy so far even though it is on the expensive side. Last time I went the waiter recommended a special which he considered to be his favorite, lamb chops with risotto and a dwonderful sauce to go with it. Not only did the risotto turn out to be bland, there was no sauce with the lamb chops and no vegetables or other sides either. Honestly the lamb chops and sides I cook at home are way better than what I received at the restaurant today. My son's food was very good but mine not worth a fraction of the cost. I was very disappointed!
