Yes, without question. The food was absolutely fabulous! We got there early enough for a window table overlooking the water--wonderful. Small complaint about service. I think we should have gotten clean small plates after finishing salad and antipasto. Kind of icky to put our entree on the same plate.

Although the restaurant is in the marina, the interior is very plain - almost like the breakfast room in an economy hotel. It's probably much better at night; we were there before sunset. Although the prices are commensurate with an expensive dining experience, the service was not. The bartender was good.

I've been to Lungomare several times over the years, for dinner and for brunch. But it had been a while. Yesterday's brunch experience was nothing like the one I had a year or two ago. This time the food was really mediocre, and a simple request to leave the bacon off my dish went unheeded. Service was not bad, even if we had to wait quite a while in a nearly empty room before anyone came to us, but it was a free-for-all. I prefer knowing who my server is. There were lots of people doing this and that.

My friend was super disappointed with her dish and she barely ate it. That was her first time there. Her polenta/egg dish had too much tomato sauce and was really salty.

They have really good gluten free pizza crust. Thin, crisp like a lavosh, and tasty! That's a major find. The flavors of all dishes we tried were interesting to excellent. I'd recommend this place for food snobs.

It was Saturday, I previewed the menu for lunch, not brunch, but when we got there, the menu was for brunch and it was 1:45 PM. “The menu changes every day, the waitress said . OK. Next, there was absolutely nothing Italian on the menu. My friend and I each ordered the Montecristo sandwich, my wife ordered Eggs Benedict. The sandwich was OK. It had blackberry jam layered with the ham and cheese. It was nicely browned and crisp. The French fries were cold. My wife hated the eggs because it had some sort of chili cream sauce on them.

In summary, we felt rushed to order drinks and food and the waitress was distinctly rude.

I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant. The final tab was $150 for drinks and food. Very disappointing as I’d planed on eating Italian.

Never again! Server was rude! Drink order took 40 minutes. Bread service came 1 hr 10 min after we arrived on time for our 7:30 reservation. Food arrived 1 hr 40 mins after our reservation. Salads were bland (we had 3 different salads). Did I mention server was extremely rude and blunt! Manager didn't seem to care. Restaurant was not crowded. We had booked this restaurant because we had been to a private function 3 months ago in June and food was great then. Something must have changed. Very very disappointed. Waste of money and time.

Dishes were pricey for what you got, and the service was just so-so. Not super attentive, and we had to ask twice for our wine and bread from two different servers.

The food here was pretty good but the service was terrible. We were there for brunch and had 9am reservations which is when the restaurant opens. It took the waitress about 45 minutes to take our order. When the food came, she forgot to order some of the food and blamed my friend for not ordering it when everyone else heard her order it. One member of the party went to the bathroom and saw a random credit card sitting in the credit card machine on the way to the bathroom. Everything was super slow and we had to keep asking for things like water and coffee and syrup, etc. Then when the bill came, one person paid with a credit card and she returned the receipt with the credit card. When we asked where the card was, the waitress had to go back looking for it. Not surprised after seeing someone else’s card hanging out in plain sight as earlier mentioned. We all left shaking our heads. I will definitely not be returning to this restaurant. This is a great area with other restaurants and I recommend trying one of them instead.

Server had no information on the wine list, didn’t know the offerings and made up answers to hide his lack of knowledge. Terrible wine list, tired food menu.

Food was good, especially the Carbonara. Table service was good as well. What took down my scoring for service was the bar. We arrived early in order to take advantage of happy hour. I, for one, was not acknowledged as I stood there, let asked for my order. Then, as happy hour was about to end, when most bar tenders are pushing for to sell 'one more', I couldn't get anyone's attention. Let's just say, the bar staff needs some work.

First time there for a business lunch. Nice restaurant with a friendly staff. Located right on the waterfront in Jack London Square. Plenty of parking also.

I wish the Lunch menu had a few more items on it but the food tasted good. We shared a Margarita Pizza - Thin Crust to perfection (Crisp but not over cooked). The Bolognese Pasta and Cesar Salad looked good. I had the Kale Spring Salad and that was fantastic. Salads are a very nice serving size. I will be going back.

I went for some innovative Italian fusion and there was fusion and some innovation, but execution fell short. Steak ordered medium rare came medium (bordering on well done); baby kale salad was well-conceived but the leaves that were beginning to go bad, even though they were few, make my guests have second thoughts about eating it. The antipasto of prosciutto and spiced peaches was the best of the lot.

Excellent location and great view. The food is so-so however and the service (on this particular occasion) did not match the prices asked. It's a good spot for a nice date, but best if you're more concerned with looking at your date and not too concerned with the food.

This place was a huge disappointment- frito misto was like rubber, came without shrimp & halibut as said on menu.

They took off bill, good thing! Then, we ordered ribeye steak it was terrible- rare with no flavor & large pieces of fat covered in sauce. My halibut was frozen seared with a gross crust ~ soggy piece of fish with cucumber salad- just over all terrible!

On my way to the restroom I over heard our server & chef arguing about the plates we sent back!

Definitely a nightmare in the kitchen- not sure what’s going on but I’m not paying for this horrible service and unacceptable meal. I, we never do this but I just couldn’t see paying anything. The manager came to the table and basically dismissed us from their restaurant no apologies just here’s the bill.

I would NOT recommend this restaurant what so ever...

We were 7 mins late and the host could not find our reservation even tho I had received 2 texts saying my table was ready to which I had replied we were on our way. We waited for our friends - but they had already been seated - by the SAME HOST. When she said she could seat us anyway - but only indoors not out as we had reserved - we walked right by our friends and were finally able to join our party. This took nearly 20 mins.

We joined our friends and eventually ordered. The food took forever and my order was even more delayed because it had been given to another customer. The server graciously comped me my salad.

There was a lovely jazz band playing in the lounge, but sadly, there was also a swing dance event in the square just outside so we were completely unable to hold a conversation (while we were waiting endlessly for our food!) because of the competing bands' cacophony. The food was ok but I would not return. I am so sorry - but I hope this feedback is helpful to others and to the restaurant. It is nice to be on the water in this historic spot.

The location was great- especially the outside seating. Right on Jack London Square, close to the water. The menu options were good, without being overwhelming [a la cheesecake factory dictionary for a menu]. The food was very good. The server we had was also very good.

I am generally an objective person: and this restaurant is one I WILL return to and expect the quality to be equally good.

I tend to reserve 5 stars/excellent ratings for Michelin-starred restaurants, so- few/far between.

This restaurant was definitely a very very good one though, and I appreciated that the bread was something you had to request, instead of being foisted on us.

Good Job Lungomare!
