We were seated outside and were the only ones out there for most of the evening. It seems they forgot we were there! The wait between courses was extremely long. We finally had to ask where our food was. Waitress blamed the busgirl and the kitchen but acknowledged she should have checked on us. No offer of even a complimentary coffee. Food was good but not worth the 2.5 hours it took for us to get it!

Unfortunately my husband and I were disappointed last night. In the past we really liked the food and the service was good. Yesterday the server messed up our order and the food was nothing to write home about. Sorry to report this, but that was our experience.

opentable said there was one opening at noon -the restaurant was empty - it didn't open until noon. I will rethink opentable reservation app for accuracy

Very good food and service.
Covid safety practices in place. Unfortunately the pandemic is reflected in the much higher menu pricing.
Disappointing no happy hour or early bird dinner specials at this time.

Food was OK, but nothing to rave about by any means. Service was very poor and found ourselves asking for the basics (silverware, napkin, a clean glass). Sadly, I wouldn't go back.

Apparently there was some confusion around the open table reservation, we reserved indoor and that didn't reflect on the restaurant's records...they had a table outside which we did not want. The owner/GM was very graceful and assisted us in getting a table inside.
Overall very pleased as usual!

The first turn off was they professed to have the biggest martinis I town. I was very excited!!!! The martini was fair in size. Our waitress was a little rough. We did like the atmosphere and could see having lunch there again. Dinner may be a stretch.

Fratello's has delicious food. Love the old school look of the place. I had Halibut that was so scrumptious. Happy to go time and time again. Looking forward to my next meal at Fratello's.

Waiter never introduced himself. Just came up and said “you want to put in a drink order?” Husband and I discussed just having our drinks and leaving and how rude our waiter was. We feel he heard our conversation because he was much nicer after that but still never introduced himself. I’ve heard nothing but good things but can honestly say I won’t be back

It was great to be back inside.
The bar was cleverly set up for twos with high top tables against the bar a safe distance appart with plenty of room to pass by. It was lively and fun.

Our server Rachael was great. Actually, everyone was attentive! Haven't been in a long time because we moved out of the area, but will be coming more often, the food is that good, fresh, homemade & delish. Desserts are homemade with love that you can taste!
