Went on mother’s day so a limited and expensive menu. Service was great but simply not worth the price. Willing to try again during a normal night.

First visit. Great customer service. Made to feel welcomed. My sea bass was a bit over cooked, but they were happy to redo it for me.

Only dislike was the ladies restroom. It was not as in good standings. Small for the size restaurant and no place for women to place or hang their purse.

This was a great night for my wife to get out and enjoy ourselves. Money is not an issue and we just want good service and good food. When our waiter came up to the table to greet us I said we just want good service and he made that happen. After ordering two of the specials and two bottles of wine we walked out with a $500 bill including a $100 tip for the man that made our night. We will be back for sure, until we get bad service.

Excellent staff , food and experience. 5 star rating in my opinion and we will visit again very soon. The recommendations by the waiter were outstanding. The quantities of food are large and delicious. From the time we entered the aroma of the food permeated all of our senses and exuded our taste buds before a morsel entered our mouths .
I cant reduce to words the top shelf experience by me and our out of town guests.

Food was good and we had some good time with friends. I ordered Risotto and I think it was a bit too greasy, but everything else on the table seems to be very good. In general it was a good experience.

I would not recommend Ferrari's for the Easter buffet. It was overpriced and the food was cold and something that I would get at a fast food restaurant. Very disappointed!

We went there for the first time for our 25th anniversary. We were very disappointed. Our server would help everybody around us but us. I had to ask for refills, I had to ask our server for grated Parmesan cheese, and it took him about 30 minutes to even bring us our mixed drinks. Other people came in after us, and he was more than willing to help them. I left him a tip, but not a huge tip like I normally would have, and left him a note stating that if he would have paid more attention to us like he did others in the restaurant, I would have left him a better one. I will never go there again, and it's not worth the money. The food is not that great, I could have went to Olive Garden for better food.

We have always loved Ferrari's and this was a nice evening as well. Service was excellent and ambience was quite nice. There was a large group of men having a dinner party but they were very quiet. Everyone loved their food but me. My starter was excellent but my Cioppino was so so. Very expensive and the fillings were good but the soup base was almost solid oil. We spent $200 with tip for 4. Only one person had drinks and he had two.

We came here around 8pm to celebrate our anniversary. The place was not very full since it was a Sunday night. We were greeted by Oscar who sat us down and also took our order. Food was amazing and cooked perfectly. Oscar took great care of us and came around every so often to check to see if we needed anything. Great relaxing atmosphere.

Based on service, quality of food and ambiance I would not recommend Ferrari's to friends. I will say that our waiter told us that it was his first night on the job, and that can be forgiven, but the amount of time it took to receive our orders and the quality of the food was not up to par.

Oscar was so amazing. He let my mother cut into her steak and realized it was cooked a little under what she prefers and before she could even ask (she’s shy) he swept in to take it to the kitchen. He also made us an amazing banana’s foster. I’ve been here several times but will now be asking for Oscar every time I go. He made this an unforgettable experience, and a phenomenal birthday. Cheers to Oscar.

We pulled up and walked into another restaurant because Ferarri's is in the back. That was strange. Our waiter didn't explain how some things on the menu worked which was confusing. The steaks were good but everything else was ok.

This is my second time at Ferrari's, hosting a group of customers at a recent conference.
As with my last visit, I could not have been more satisfied with our selection.
The food was excellent, the service was top-notch, and the private room allowed our group to have a comfortable dining and conversation experience.
I am also very pleased with the personal assistance provided by Jessica Redd (Ferrari's Event Manager) in the week prior to our event. We selected a pre-set, yet flexible menu, including wine and appetizers ready within minutes of our arrival.

I was initially really excited when my boyfriend booked a reservation here for a special 3-course Valentine’s Day dinner but unfortunately we had a terrible experience. Our reservation was at 9pm and 3 minutes prior, as we were literally in the parking lot at 8:57pm, we got a call from the hostess saying they couldn’t accommodate our reservation for an hour at least “as the kitchen was overwhelmed and they were running behind”. (It’s never the kitchens fault). The hostess did apologize but didn’t offer any specific times, waiting solutions, the bar or lounge, and hung up quickly.

Since we were already there, I walked in to speak to the hostesses in person to better understand the situation and I might as well have since we already drove all the way over. There were other couples there just as frustrated, disappointed and confused as we were. We initially went to take a seat at one of the high tops in the lounge but it was so overcrowded with people and couples with reservations not knowing where to stand and wait.

Not only is it really disappointing and frustrating to have your reservation not honored by a restaurant you planned your holiday around to celebrate with your significant other, but we were told only 3 minutes beforehand and by that time didn’t even have the opportunity to see if we could find another place since it was already 9pm. To top it off, around 11pm we still never heard back from the restaurant and decided to order pizza at home for Valentine’s Day. Had we even known around 7/7:30pm even 8, we MAY have been able to figure something out in regards to doing something else special but unfortunately wasn’t even given that courtesy.

My boyfriend works a very demanding job and rarely ever has weekends/holidays off to celebrate. He specifically requested off Valentine’s Day months in advance.

For this reason, we sadly will most likely not be returning even though it looked like a really nice restaurant with good food, ambiance and style.

Had a reservation set for 8:30 and when we showed up, they said the kitchen was “backed up.” We would have had to wait 40 minutes for a table and a hour for food according to the hostess. Totally unacceptable for a nice restaurant and will not be going back again on busy nights/special occasions.

As were at the end of the night, we ordered several items that they ran out of, but our waiter Byron was quick with a substitution and recommendation and the evening did not suffer. Byron is beyond excellent and I would absolutely recommend him if you have the opportunity to stop in this gem of a restaurant!

Wasn’t impressed on Valentine’s Day. Stripped down menu, $65/person, and it took two hours for our entrees to come out. We payed as soon as our food came out and asked for dessert to go just to avoid getting stuck for another hour and a half. Their bottles of wine were reasonably priced. I liked this place previously, and I still probably would on a regular night. But they didn’t do a great job keeping a full house taken care of.

Valentines Day. We had to ask for them to dim the lighting in the NorthWest banquet room they put us in. The chairs in that room were worn out, sunken holes in the middle and leather/vinyl peeling off. It took us over 30 minutes to get bread - and we had to ask for that. It took us another 30 minutes to then get appetizers and an hour and twenty after that to get our entree. We were there over 3 hours.... ended up costing us an Uber home because we couldn’t do anything but drink while we waited. 3 tables left before entrees were served due to the slow pace of dinner and too long of wait times for food. We have eaten here many times and it’s even wonderful ( but not in that room ). The food was great when we got it , the waiter was fine but the kitchen was horribly staffed that night. We will go back but NEVER on a busy night and we will NEVER be allowed to be seated in that banquet room again.
It was a disappointment considering it was Valentines Night.

I'm not sure why a restaurant was not better prepared for Valentine's Day. They had a prix fixe dinner so they shouldn't have been surprised and caught short of food. We ordered ALL of our food at the start and so we were VERY disappointed when at the end of the meal they were out of the chocolate dessert! We didn't mind a 2 1/2 hour dinner as it gave us time to talk and catch up but what was going on in the kitchen?! We waited over an hour for our entree. Our poor server apologized constantly about the wait. At the hour mark, a manager offered to bring us some antipasta, again about a 10-minute wait on that! Our food was good but the restaurant really seemed unprepared for customers. We were initially seated at a 2 top that was placed in the doorway of the dining room. We declined; so did 3 other customers! There were plenty of tables available. There were also plenty of dirty tables needing to be cleaned. WAter glasses needed to be refilled, we had to ask. We've never had a bad experience at Ferrari's before but they really blew Valentine's Day. There were single roses on each table and boxes of roses by the front door; were these for the guests? No one offered us a flower, coffee with dessert, or an excuse to return.
