We ate outdoors in their lovely tented seating area.Manny, our server, was delightful. Food and service were excellent. We always enjoy La Ginestra and and look forward to dining there again soon.
La Ginestra never fails to please us. We go for special occasions and just when we want the best food around.
A great restaurant. Very nice atmosphere, excellent service and incredible food. One of my favorite restaurants. I can't wait to go back.
Excellent Food and friendly staff. Always consistent . I love this place !
My first time and had a really nice dinner. I had two simple dishes that were very good. The App was house made Mozzarella, still warm, wrapped in imported Prosciutto; mmmmmmmmmmmmm! For dinner, I had marinated Grilled Shrimp (Gamberi) with shaved Fennel, a little Endive and a couple of Orange slices, with no peel, pith or pits, also mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
The shrimp were simply cooked perfectly and still hot when they came to the table.
There seemed to be a lot of repeat customers that knew each other and folks were still coming in at 9:30 p.m. on a Saturday
I tasted my wife's Risotto, delish!
We'll go back.
Great food and service.
Disappointing. The waitress was more interested in serving the table that came in after ours; they were obviously repeat customers/friends of hers and the owners. They were served, ate, and left before us. 40 minutes after we ordered our dinners, the waitress came to tell us that my mother's order (eggplant lasagna; one of the day's specials) was no longer available. FORTY MINUTES AFTER WE ORDERED she tells us that??? She suggested another eggplant dish, which turned out to be not good. The waitress was also trying to 'push' more dishes on us. Overall, very turned off. Will not go back there again!
We're "regulars" at La Ginestra, great food, friendly efficient service and a wonderful ambiance: everyone eating at this restaurant always seems to be having a good time. The vibe is infectious .
Great as alwayss!
Just a great place with attentive staff, wonderful food presented with care. We were outside near the street so just a bit of noise but not preventing conversation or communication with the staff. I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. Being inside is also great with ample table spacing on a couple levels. Check it out!

Everything was perfect, service and food.
They made our anniversary dinner extra special!! The food is amazing.
La Ginestra is our favorite "go to" place. We drive nearly 60 miles round trip to enjoy their cuisine almost weekly, and for very good reason. The food is unquestionably delicious and consistently expertly prepared and professionally presented. Our favorites, Manny and Melissa, always take the best care of us and make us feel like we are at home in our own space, and the hosts, Enzo, Monica and Gus are always gracious. (They also make the best biscotti in town.)
Can't ask for more or better!!
This is a staple in my life! After over 30 years, it never disappoints! It’s amazing in every way! My favorite restaurant and I was in the restaurant business! They all know what they’re doing to the highest level!
