    The food and our server were excellent. However, I do have a little observation. When we arrived at the restaurant there was nobody at the entrance to check our reservation and we had to wait for a while until finally somebody showed up. There was other people waiting too. It looked a little disorganized and the woman seemed a little frustrated. Not good for business. Thank you.

    Food was delicious. Service excellent. Tables are tooooooo close to each other. Practically touching the people at table next to us. Made it impossible to have dinner conversation. Also worried this might be a fire hazard!

    The food was fine - not exceptional, not terrible. But this restaurant has packed in as many tables as possible, and the tables are notably small. So it’s not a comfortable experience, and in a Saturday evening it was very loud.

    Your favorite Italian dish is on the menu here and it's delicious! A good variety of wine choices to accompany your meal at fair prices. The portions are slightly large so have the appetizer and dessert and get a box to take half your entree home for lunch tomorrow. Reservations required especially early as families fill the dining room at 430pm -630 pm on weekends. Tip your waiter well - they are skilled and friendly.

    Food and service at Fontina Grille is consistently excellent. I've been a customer for over 25 years and have taken most of my houseguests there at least once. Both lunch and dinner are great. It is my "go to" restaurant. It's also good for take-out and catering. It has the best Caesar salad around. Lettuce is always crispy. Dressing has just the right amount of tang, but I also love their house salad. My favorite dishes are the chicken marsala, shrimp/asparagus risotto, fettuccine bolognese, truffle pizza, and mussels. But I've never had anything there that I didn't like.

    Our server was great!! Some items weren't on the menu we saw online, but he knew what we wanted and was able to order. Everything came out in enough time to finish our appetizers so we didn't feel rushed, checked on us enough that we were able to enjoy our meal without interruption every 10min. The food was very good, didn't taste frozen or boxed (it could've been, but it didn't taste that way). All in all, nice Bday meal for my Mom!

    Food was good…nice quality but ordered chicken piccata at lunch and got dinner sized pasta but only one small thin chicken breast (maybe 3 oz portion) pasta to protein ratio was poor…good taste though.

    The experience was very good. Server did seem a bit overwhelmed. One member of our party took one taste of their dish and did not like it (too spicy). We exchanged it for another dish & were very happy we did not get charged for the first dish. Overall a very pleasant time. Will return.

    We had not been here since before Covid and had a nice dinner on New Year’s Day. The food was good (we had spaghetti and meatballs and a small pizza) and the portions were generous. It was much quieter than previous times we had been here and we enjoyed the ambience. We did not have to wait for a table. Our server was courteous and friendly.
