Great food and service! Not a disappointment.
The buffet was a great value, lots of options. They seemed a bit understaffed, we had to wait a while for the check because our waitress was also bartending. The decor was modern but cozy as well. The tables were very close together and small, we had four people there and were bumping elbows a bit. I still really enjoyed it though.
Fontana Gill is OK. There is nothing wrong but nothing special about this restaurant. It is just another "Italian" restaurant among many.
We had 11 people, the table was great & the service & food was excellent!
Food is very good ... had value special disgust — a spring garden salad with scallops. Quite different from the usual pasta dihes and it was absolutely delicious. Staff us very friendly, too
Work colleagues lunch
Arrived for our reservation to find 25 + other people waiting in line for a table who all had reservations for the same time slot. We will never try to eat there again.
Arrived to a chaotic overcrowded scene. Host handled it effectively and worked very hard to satisfy all the potential patrons that OpenTable inefficiently gave reservations to. In spite of the chaos created by Open Table we were seated pretty quickly. The rest of the evening was great. Mixed drinks were expertly prepared, House Cabernet excellent and food was beautifully and efficiently prepared and serviced . Highly recommended. Staff handled the business with much class and effectiveness.
Great food. Great service !
We had an unfortunate 2nd visit to Fontina. Although we had a reservation for 6:30PM and had been at the bar since 5:15PM, we were not seated until about 45 minutes after our reservation. The host did give us a free drink for the inconvenience. It was very crowded and I got the impression that they were seating regulars without paying any attention to the reservations. The service was good once we were seated and the food was excellent. I would give it another try as we were told by several regulars at the bar that they had never seen it so crowded.
Food was okay, nothing special. Good neighborhood spot. We were in the area and decided to try it. Not likely to return, primarily because it is inconvenient for me.
A very pleasant surprise. Don’t know why we didn’t try it sooner. No wonder it received so many great comments.
This was a return visit with out of town friends. We loved the warm bread and dipping oil. The salads were fresh and sized right. My wife and I enjoyed our veal piccia and marsla, respectively. Maria, our waitress was happy to substitute angel hair pasta for spaghetti in my order. The house chianti was a good complement to our meal. Our friends enjoyed their PENNE CON BROCCOLI. The mini cannolies which came with the specials were taken home to be enjoyed later. Maria is to be commended for being so accommodating in all our requests.
Eventhough the restaurant was very busy the staff was very attentive. Food was good and atmosphere was festive.
First time visit on a busy Saturday night and made reservations (recommended). Calamari was better than average with good flavor. Ordered the special—seafood rose with penne prepared in their vodka sauce and it was outstanding. Portions are very generous. The scallops, shrimp and crabmeat were not overcooked and the vodka sauce was light and flavorful. My husband ordered the Chesapeake in vodka sauce and it was equally delicious. Ordered the peanut butter Bomba dessert and it is dessert heaven for peanut butter chocolate lovers. In addition to the excellent food, the service was equally excellent especially because it was a very busy Saturday night. All servers were very attentive but not annoying. Will visit again to try other items on the menu.
Fontina Grille is a great Italian restaurant for those red sauce favorites, veal or egg plant parmigiana, pizza, spaghetti etc. It is a homey place with good service, efficient and a pleasure to dine at. Entrees include a salad which is decent in size and quality. Recommend!
Outstanding. My newest favorite Italian restaurant
It was not a long wait as we waited for our reservation time. The hostess offered every guest if they would like water. Our waitress was very good. She got our order accurately and remembered that my mom and I were sharing. Food was served hot. I would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant to anyone.
The restaurant's best dishes are those which require minimal preparation. The barely seared sushi grade tuna in the salad was excellent, but the crab cakes were disappointing because the natural flavor of the crab was disguised. Alicia, the server, has a wonderful personality that makes dining at one of her tables a pleasure. I am not a fan of the ambiance: brown floors, brown tables, brown chairs.
My 3rd visit. Never disappointed. Food is wonderful. Have recommended to several friends.
We go back and back to Fontina Grille time after time and they never let us down. Good food, moderately price drinks, wait staff friendly. We will continue to return here for other occasions.
The best part about Fontina Grille: It is a friendly, neighborhood restaurant where the owners care enough to stop by every table and make sure everything is good. But that only works if the food is good, and they do a wonderful job from Italian entres to dinner salads. Prices are more than fair. For some not familiar with King Farm, it is a bit hard to find, but it is worth looking for.
Excellent food. Was seated immediately despite a busy night. Service was good. A little disappointed there was no birthday acknowledgement from the staff as I requested.
Great food, good prices, great service, great experience!
Very nice neighborhood Italian restaurant. Good food at reasonable prices. Would definitely be back.
Went for Valentine's day and it was amazing. The wait was a little long but that's to be expected on a day like this. Food was on point and delicious. With some Italian places I get tired of the food midway but not this time(I stopped cause I got full). We had fried calimari which was fried perfectly, I had pene w/broccoli I added shrimp and girlfriend had capalinni d'angelo. It was a great first experience and I would recommend this place!
First timers, it was Valentines Day dinner, great food, cant wait to come back and try the pizza’s. Our waitress was “on her game”. Wonderful job
Both the food, the service, and the rose were very good.
Always amazing food!
Went to Fontina Grille for Pizza but ended up ordering other offering including an appetizer and a salad. All was great but the appetizer (Meat Balls) was large enough for an entrée. Great wine list and craft beer selection.
We had Caesar Salad, Pizza and wine. The salad was ok, but lacked garlic which in my mind defines along with anchovies good Caesar. The pizza was ok too. The crust, though was greasy and not very crisp. It had plenty of pepperoni, sausage and mushrooms with a sprinkling of green peppers. The sausage was unusual in that it was slices from a stick rather than crumbles. I've had other Italian dishes here that were much better than the pizza.
It took the server a while to bring the check, making the excuse that he did not hear me the first time I asked for it.
Cozy and friendly atmosphere with good menu selection and timely service.
This was a Birthday celebration with the family and it was great. Saturday night crowd, but very easy to communicate with those in our party
Was not at all impressed, maitre d asked us for our drink order and never returned. When we sat down, we told him it was our first time and were celebrating a birthday to which he responded "I will bring you a sample of desserts for your friend" since it was our first time. That never happened. Food was marginal.
Great. Service and food was perfect. Love this restaurant
Very nice meal and solid Italian. We had 7:30 reservation but didn’t get seated until closer to 8:00. But because of wait, they provided free drinks. Had pizza, pasta, and veal entrees. Good service and good food.
Food was excellent as always. We like the fact that salad and bread is included in the meal.
Went here for the first time last weekend for lunch. It is a great place to go and the food was very good & service excellent. There is a good choice of dishes and should suit anyone going there. Definitely recommend and am going back again.
Food and staff are always amazing! Thank you Fontina Grille for another wonderful experience.
Fontina Grille offers an excellent menu and fanatic service. I've been there multiple times for happy hour, family celebrations, work lunches, and casual get togethers.
Most recently we were there with a party of 12, 6 adults and 6 children. All of the servers and wait staff were awesome. Completely patient with the kids, and great service without being overwhelming while the adults chatted.
I love their pizzas, and they have my favorite salad (salmon). Everything I have ordered, from lunch to dinner to happy hour appetizers had been great. It's a great go to location!
