Huge steak - we’ll at least they wanted it to look that way. WAY too huge and half of it was fat , much of which should have beeN trimmed before cooking. Supposed to be medium but it ws RAW in the middle. Vegetables on the side were ice cold. Main courses took forever to come out. Glass of wine costs a small fortune. Will not be back.

Everything about Fornos was tremendous, the portions of food great, and all went great, EXCEPT- we could not finish our portions. We asked the waiter to wrap up the remaining food so that we could take it home. The bag contained only the meat part- he had failed to include a sizable amount of Spanish rice, and the vegetables. We were very disappointed.

I have been a customer for 12 yrs since September I have noticed some changes and not necessarily for the best. The prices have increased ( inflation, I understand) . However last night I was asked if I wanted a bow or a cup for my soup and I asked for a bowl and I was given what it looks like the size of an 8onz cup of coffee and was told that that was a bowl!!! I was so confused!
My waiter came to my table 2 Times, to take my order and to bring the check, when I expressed my disappointment his response was, “ things have changed for 3 month now”.
I truly love this place but I’m not sure if I will continue to go.

The food was amazing. We ate here before the Transiberian Orchestra at Prudential Center, was a quick walk from there and none of us were disappointed. The halibut was delicious as was the paella. The stuffed scallops were tasty but our two favorites of the night were the sangria and the Belgium chocolate mousse. We would eat here again in a heartbeat! PS the staff was attentive and very welcoming, explained the large waiting line when we were leaving.

The food was amazing. I thought the sangria was a bit pricey $14.95 for a small glass mostly ice and fruit. $29 for 1/2 pitcher. Portions were tremendous even the boys couldn’t finish. We went to a hockey game and they got us in and out in perfect time ! Worked out great ! All around great experience! Definitely would recommend .
