    Wonderfully delicious meal. Both the soft shell crab and the halibut were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Our first waitress was very communicative and knowledgeable. Unfortunately she went off duty and her replacement was not as attentive. However there were many more people the restaurant when she took over. We had a wonderful experience for our first time there. Definitely recommend it.

    Excellent service and food at this location. We had a 10:30 reservation and had to wait about 20 minutes to get seated. The host brought my hangry 3yo a muffin while we waited. He also sent our graduate home with parting gifts. It was so thoughtful and kind. Service was absolutely fantastic, as was everything we ate/drank. The restaurant is very loud/crowded and not much waiting area, but I am not sure what can be done about that. Regardless, we had great seating for a group of 8 near a window and for a large group, the server did a great job. They really mad our graduation celebration brunch very special.

    At first the hostess offered us a table in a far corner next to the door to the outside area and after asking to be moved she put us in what I think was a prime location-not sure why she didn’t put us there to begin with. The wait team and food instantly made me forget my annoyance at the hostess. For the next two hours we had AMAZING service and AMAZING food. Our waitress knew everything about the menu from drinks (cocktails and wine) to food/dessert. We had the perfect amount to feel full and so happy. It is not often these days to have an experience where you can’t wait to give them more tip than the recommended amount. Well done!!

    This place has become our favorite Italian restaurant. Great food, great service. I only docked it 1 star because of value. I understand everything today has gotten very expensive and you pay for what you get. I paid over $400 for a meal for three of us which is not affordable for most people, especially families. Our meal included only 1 cocktail and 1 glass of wine, 1 appetizer, 3 entree's and 2 desserts. They do not have gelato or ice cream, however the cakes and baked goodies they have are enormous and delicious. Maybe I'd rate it 5-starts if they only had gelato. Not sure why the Italian restaurants in Georgetown do not have ice cream or gelato? Is it just me? It won't stop us from coming back here, but definitely we have to save up a little to come and enjoy a meal here. Yes, we would recommend it to our friends. If anyone from Filomena's is reading this, please put Gelato or ice cream on the dessert menu - pretty please?
