Food Was terrible!

I really do not mind paying top dollar for quality but not for quantity.
The pasta was grossly over-cooked and the sauce tasted like it came out of a can of Ronzoni
It was a memorable experience but for all the WRONG reasons.

We were seated by the entrance to lobby, it was extremely busy and noisy, the service was rushed, the food was fatty and luke warm. The food was average and comparable to a chain restaurant. We looked forward to this celebration and we were disappointed.

Was highly recommend but left a little disappointed. My “seafood pasta” with black linguini was very heavy in oil. Cheese ravioli was very good, chicken ravioli was okay. Waiters were very nice but seemed rushed, not overly friendly. Would try again just to see if first impression was off

Wait servers should let diners know that pasta dishes are huge and should be split between 2 adults. We found the prices super high. Maybe reduce prices and portion sizes?

The food was pretty good, but not the best I've ever had. The service was very good. The one thing that I didn't like was that we had to wait 45 minutes for a 9:15 pm reservation.

My friend suggested we go to Filomena since she heard great things about it. Everything we were told was true. So instead of writing something overblown and wordy just suffice to say that Filomena is the reason we go out to dine. Incredible ambiance and food so good it brings tears to your eyes. Especially if you're Italian/American as I am. It was like eating in my Mom's kitchen. Don't bother booking that trip to Italy. Filomena will bring Italy to you. Mangia!!

Filomena is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. We celebrate special occasions and every day ones too. The food is so delicious and we love the seasonal decorations. We have been customers for 33 years. We especially love the seafood pastas as entrees but we really appreciate everything on the menu. Try to save room for dessert because all of them are extra special.

Has always been a favorite! The food is phenomenal!! We go at least once a month, the only reason they do not have five stars is no matter what you will have to wait for your table. Last time we had to wait for over 30 minutes for an 8:30pm reservation which made it pretty late.

It was a great overall dining experience. The selection of food extensive and provided something for everyone, it was absolutely delicious and the serving size was plentiful. The table spacing was a bit "intimate" which added to the raised noise level but not enough to detract significantly from the overall experience...
