Laboratorio Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
What a gem! First time at Labratorio and we were blown away! Food was perfection. So delicious, full of flavor, and I love that they had a small menu. You can tell they concentrate on the quality of the food they offer. Husband had the steak au poive - delicious! I had the trout with potatoes and warm arugula, beyond amazing! For dessert the pear tarte - amazing!! Not sweet, so homemade and the ice-cream on top was not your ordinary vanilla for sure. I give the food a 10! Atmosphere so cozy and music/ambience a 10 as well. We loved our waiter Alex and can't wait to come back again!!
This was my first time here. My girlfriend and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary. Our experience exceeded our expectations and was nothing short of very special. Jeremy, in addition to the rest of the staff members were very professional and attentive, food was phenomenal, atmosphere was sleek and sophisticated. We couldn't believe the steak we SHARED was actually one entre, considering how large the portion was! This was our first but definitely not our last time at Laboratorio Kitchen. Thank you for making our anniversary extra special!
Excellent food and service. The waiter was very nice. We forgot a bottle of wine and the waiter let us know that we could call the local store and it would be delivered to our table. The wine was delivered quickly and we were able to enjoy it with our dinner. Specials were also delicious.
The portions were large. The pasta was al dente and the meatball flavorful. The scallops were perfectly cooked with sumptuous butternut squash. The crostini with amazing blue cheese and figs were delicious and the burrato with a hint of truffle oil and olives were also delicious. The dessert menu as limited but my friend and I were too full to try. I would highly recommend this place Alex took very good care of us checking on us periodically this is a must try and go back again restaurant!
My wife and I went without any prior
Recommendation and were pleased with our experience
Although a Touch loud due to hard walls and a rectangular room, we were able to enjoy the meal and converse.
The appetizers and main entry were exquisitely prepared. The cost was a bit higher than average, but the portions were so large that we both brought back half our meal! I had the lobster special and my wife had scallops
We will most likely be back again.
Laboratorio was recommended by a friend. For as many times as I have driven down Bloomfield avenue, I never noticed it. Boy, are we sorry. What a great restaurant. The food was excellent, and the service was top notch. We had the trout and the sole. Excellent! Can't wait to go back and try other dishes.
This is a special place. The menu was so filled with great offerings that it made choices difficult. The food was well-prepared and the quality of the ingredients was immediately obvious. All items ordered were outstanding.
The restaurant has a relationship with a local wine shop which makes it possible to get a great bottle of wine for what one might commonly pay for a glass of wine elsewhere.
It is well worth the trip!
MY WIFE AND I HAD DINED THERE ONCE BEFORE WHEN IT FIRST OPENED. WE DECIDED TO TRY IT AGAIN AND IT TURNED OUT BE BE A REAL TREAT. THE RAVIOLI PASTA APPETIZER WAS GREAT. WE BOTH GOT THE TROUT AND IT WAS DONE PERFECT. GREAT FLAVOR AND VERY FRESH. THE PEAR TART WAS A GREAT WAY TO FINISH OFF A TERRIFIC MEAL THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. I DEFINITELY WOULD REFER THIS TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS A NICE NIGHT OUT. LOUIS C
My husband and I came here to celebrate his birthday. It was very good, with excellent food and service, and a nice atmosphere. I had the lamb chops, which were perfectly cooked, and he had the risotto, always a go-to for him, and it made him happy. Highly recommend!
