The muscle appetizer was good. The cioppino was average. More pasta than seafood the cost for two was a bit spendy.
The food here was good. Portions are not as big as you would expect from a traditional italian restaurant but overall the taste was pretty good.
All good. Food, service, and ambience, excellent.
Service was wonderful. Food was 6/10, pizza a bit too thick and our other entrees were just “ok”
We love fontina grille! Always an excellent meal!
Lovely as always! Crime brûlée was delicious. Just not set. Hopefully, next time!
Great menu selection, ample servings, delicious desserts, AND GREAT waiter. I accidentally left my credit card on the table, and our waiter came outside to find us, walked down 2 streets and called out to us that we had left our card in the restaurant.
My husband said that the crab cakes (appetizer) were the best he'd had in a very long time--little if any filler. The bread is always delicious, and my dinner was good. We think this restaurant is a great deal. The service was outstanding.
Food is generally tasty and well prepared.
Love dininig here. Food is always exceptional as well as the service.
Ate with 3 other people and all 4 dishes were delicious. Never had anything bad here. Lovely neighborhood restaurant. Service is terrific. Always feel welcome.
This restaurant seems to be the prototypal Italian eatery. It is definitely the place to go if you're feeling like Italian fare.
everything was just so good
Never disappointed. Our server, Melissa is amazing. She is attentive, always exceeds our expectations. Our meal was perfectly prepared. Presentation was eye pleasing.
Love the food, service wasn't the most attentive at lunch but okay
John exceeded expectations
I had a pleasant experience with my family. The food was good. the salad could of had a few more tomatoes etc. Sometimes it was hard for the server to understand us. Overall a good experience.
The stand out was our server Maria. She was just wonderful. The portions were large and the prices very fair. I was very happy with everything that we ordered. The entrees even came with soup or salad. How nice. The menu has some interesting items too. We enjoyed the hot mushroom appetizer.
I arrived 30 minutes early for my lunch reservation. Since the restaurant was fairly quiet I was immediately seated and brought warm foccacia bread and olive oil along with water. Upon request I also received a lovely chilled Chardonnay to sip on while awaiting my lunch companion. When she arrived the server was quick to come and get her a glass of wine as well and continued to be attentive and responsive without hovering too much.
As always the food was delicious, plentiful and served at the proper temp (salad was crisp and cold, pasta and chicken were hot). We were not rushed out and were able to enjoy a lovely leisurely lunch.
Delightful restaurant, friendly staff and good value.
We had our holiday lunch at Fontina's. They gave us a round table towards the back, away from the regular dining area and bar, which was very nice and bright. The waitress even cleared off an empty table nearby so we could put our gifts on it for our White Elephant game. The food was great, from the appetizers (we got 4 - calamari, eggplant, mussels, mozz caprese) to the main dishes. Everyone exclaimed how much they enjoyed their food. I noticed how much they liked it when it got quiet and all you could hear is everyone making yummy sounds!
The food is always great and the service is wonderful. Busy restaurant and the kitchen is fast. We will be back again soon. Love the menu and want to try some other dishes soon!
Fontina Grill sets the standard in the County for dining and cuisine excellence.
Great lunch! They do a great job with the fish!
Consistently excellent Italian restaurant that many people don't seem to know about. Pasta and salmon dishes delicious. Salads fresh. Vibrant bar scene
Jad, the general manager, makes the place run well.
Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Never disappointed here.
Great service and good! Nice red wine recommendation (Romae). We'll be back!
Food, drinks and service was all perfect. One of my favorite places to come when I’m in town or want to meet up with people. Thanks for a great evening!
Always a great place to eat! The servers are attentive, but do not make you feel rushed. The food for all diners at the table comes out at the same time and it is consistently good. I substituted the zoodles for pasta and they were excellent! The restaurant has protected outdoor seating with heaters, which is really a bonus these days.
Place never ever let’s us down. Good food, good service, good atmosphere. Our pandemic go-to restaurant. Thanks Ali!
Excellent service and atmosphere! Really enjoyed the food and had a great time. Great place for a date.
Wonderful service and absolutely delicious food!! Best dinner out in a long time. Thank you!!
Loved it food is amazing!
Everything was good except it is quite crowded and tables are not spaced apart if you have covid concerns. Servers wore masks and service was very good as was food.
Loved it! Fabulous atmosphere, terrific service, and delicious food. Such a great evening and easy to see why it’s such a popular place. We will definitely be back!
Great food, courteous service, one of our all time faves
Great service and food! My husband and my girl friend felt very special for their birthday. I will definitely go back!
Consistently delicious and great service!!
We started with Bruschetta which was absolutely delicious. I ordered a Puttanesca pizza with cauliflower crust (just because I like the taste). It was a melt in your mouth combo of creamy mozzarella, olivey tang, a touch of sourness from the capers, a lightly crisped crust and just the right amount of garlic. I also ordered a grilled romaine salad which was a fresh, tasty medley. My friend ordered a lasagna and declared it to be outstanding. Service was great. It was a very agreeable evening all round.
Food great no matter what you order. Quality is consistent
A lot going on for a Thursday night. Charity event at the bar, and wedding rehearsal dinner at the back of the restaurant, so very loud. But food and service all very good.
Outdoor seating was cozy. Melissa, our server was friendly and attentive. She was amazing as was the ravioli and Cesar salad!!
