The service here was okay, OpenTable wasn't working on their end so they couldn't see my reservation. They seemed a little stressed about it. At first they seated us indoor when I asked for outdoor. They fixed it, but seemed a little upset about it. Waiter didn't come around to check up on us. Staff was rushed and managers seemed rude.

The food and drinks were great.

I've been to Lungomare several times over the last couple of years, on each occasion the food is very nice but the service is terrible. The servers are very slow from the moment you enter the door until the time your check arrives. It's a shame the service is so slow, because the food is very pleasant, although the servings are small by US standards. If the service could be improved, this could be a nice restaurant.

Reliable and reasonably priced good food. Easy parking. Good brunch place. It’s always nice to sit overlooking water, boats. Servers are pretty friendly, you can catch music sometimes. No hype. Just a good place to frequent.

The Christmas dinner of Prime Rib was fabulous. The only problem was with the seating. When reserving I had asked for a table with a view of the water. The hostess ignored that and tried to seat us at a table at which the ocean view was obscured, so I had to insist we were moved to another table. Throughout the entire meal, a table right by the window remained unoccupied. That was hard to understand, as we asked about the table and were told it was unavailable. Unavailable for WHAT? is our question.

Started off with the host who we argued with over a table. They had one set up for 8 by the wait staff station. (REALLY loud direction yelling in the kitchen by the lead chef? I thought I was on a crazy chef reality show). We had 6 people. I pointed out a table for 6 that was open and I was told "But that is for people with a reservation." Well, we had a reservation. There were probably 5 other options throughout the half empty restaurant. After going back and forth they gave us another table. Probably one of the worst meals I have experienced of late and I dine out regularly. POOR service was the culprit. The young lady had to be flagged down instead of regularly checking in on us throughout the meal. It took a total of 30 minutes after being seated before we had our drinks brought to us (Including the 15 minute wait for the waitress to even come to the table after our arrival). THEN they brought out two of the entrees after another half hour wait and no one had yet received their appetizers and salads. The menu clearly stated the meal was set up in courses. We sent that back and then comes out two side orders of potatoes. Sent that back. The staff bringing it out blamed the waitress and the way she put in the order. Then 20 minutes later come the appetizers, salads, etc. Fortunately I was there with people I love and we enjoyed each other's company. But I felt embarrassed because I had arranged the restaurant and was paying for the meal. So many other goofs --- too much to list. The saddest thing about the service was that the restaurant never got more than two thirds full while we were there --- no excuse. To top it off the food was just ok. Never going back. Never recommending.

We have been here before for several dinners but we believe that the food and service have improved !!! The meal started with the smoked salmon & burratta and we each has a fabulous pasta dish--Trofie with a pesto lemon sauce and Chitarra with house made ink squid pasta.. They gave us a complimentary dessert--Budino which was delicious... Our server was Angel and she was very warm ,professional & attentive. We have recommended this on our Facebook pages and now friends/neighbors/family are going...

The food was good enough but staff was very amateurish. Came in on time for our reservation at 1 pm on a Saturday but no one was at the lobby to meet us. The restaurant was fairly empty. After waiting about 5 minutes, I walked in and asked one of the servers if we just go ahead and seat ourselves. I was told that the hostess will seat us and that she was seating someone at the time. After another 5 minutes, the hostess came walking back with the manager from the back of the restaurant and told the same server I talked with to seat us. The manager seem miffed at me that I had talked to the server to begin with. Any restaurant worth its salt should always have someone in front to greet patrons but not here.

We were seated given the brunch menu but when we inquired if we can order from the dinner menu since we did not want brunch, we were told no. We had to ask for bread. Most restaurants we frequent give you water and bread after you are seated. I was looking forward to some Italian food . After all, it was an Italian restaurant, but had to settle for prime rib and eggs. First time I paid so high a price for a breakfast entrée! Another thing, our place settings were just fork and a butter knife. When the prime rib and eggs came, no steak knife was provided although the butter knife sufficed. I am being a little picky here but I am used to good service and amenities when paying premium prices.

Our server was accommodating but service was not the fastest. I guess when you have the gratuity automatically added due to the size of our party, there is no need to pay too much attention to our table particularly when the place is almost empty.

Bottom line: If craving good Italian food at lunch during the weekend, go anywhere else but here.

I would like to try this restaurant again. Unfortunately our group of 7 arrived at 8:45 pm and we were told we had less than 10 minutes to review the menu. It was a Wednesday night and no one was in the restaurant.

I had the kale salad and squid ink pasta and it was ok. we wanted to add protein to the salad and we were told not an option which was disappointing.

The brunch was okay, I had the frittata which was ok. My date had the steak he said it was delicious. But the hottest was horrible. I don’t know if she was just having a bad day or if she is just rude but she was rude treating us and when she sat us she just threw the menus on the table and walked away. We both looked at each other like “whoa!” It did not start our breakfast off very well and definitely worried me about the rest of the meal. However the server was very sweet, the food came out promptly and correctly cooked and the view was great

We had a new server which was fine. the problem was the manager who was supposed to be helping/ supervising/ training him seemed like he didn't want to be there. We has not rude just never smiled or brought us what we needed. when the waiter brought appetizer our he had made a mistake, perfectly understandable.. .BUT the manager was right there when we pointed out the mistake he rolled his eyes and give the waiter a nasty look. I was embarrassed for the waiter. we asked the manager for water when we first sat down, he never brought it our had some one else bring it. we had ask for bread twice as well. the kitchen was slow it took for ever to get anything we asked for. The food was just OK. I would not return here.

I had lunched at Lungomare a half dozen times and had enjoyed it. So I booked it for a party of four for Thanksgiving.
The food (turkey & prime rib) and the sides were tasty, but the service was really unprofessional. They lost our drink order. They didn't bring us enough cranberry sauce. They didn't bring gravy or bread until we asked for it. They didn't offer coffee with dessert. They didn't bring enough cream with the coffee. They didn't bring any sugar with the coffee. You get the idea.
They might be okay during the week for lunch, but they were not ready for a prime time event.

Nice date night venue. They took the time to make sure we were seated by the windows with a lovely view of the water. Food was good - the server enthusiastically recommended a choice that simply didn't do anything for me once I tasted it, but I don't mind a server offering a personal opinion. Other than that, food was good and service was friendly and timely. Live music in the lounge as we were finishing up dinner - nice to have live music. Will definitely put in on the rotation list of date night venues.

Really enjoyed my first dining experience at Lungomare. The ambiance and server handled us well. We were a party of 6, so it was great to have a restaurant tend to our individual needs and allow us time to socialize before eating. The food was more than I expected, especially the bolognese. We ordered the crispy calamari as appetizers and a mix of sorbet and gelato as desserts. Thanks for the awesome service and dining experience!

$27 for a half carafe of wine, $40-$50 for a bottle. Nothing reasonably priced. If you do not want to take out a second mortgage to have wine or drinks with dinner, find another spot. The food was decent but nothing that you couldn't find at a place with a reasonable wine list.

The food was amazing. It was 9 of us for my dads 81st birthday. We had most of the appetizers, almost all of the entrees, and most of the desserts. Each one was better than the last. My favorites were the calamari and octopus, (couldn’t decide which was better) the scallops were done perfectly, and the chocolate budino!!! The waiter was great, telling my wife who can’t have dairy exactly what she could eat and what she couldn’t without her having to ask. The restaurant made an amazing family meal flawless! Thank you.

Four of us had dinner here prior to attending a show at the Fox. We had 5:45pm reservations and were seated immediately at a nice table with a water view next to the window. There was a good selection of both wines and beer so everyone in our party was happy. The food was delicious! I had a prosciutto pizza with arugula on top; the crust was thin and crispy and I could have easily shared it. My husband had some sort of baked pasta dish with rabbit; also delicious and well seasoned. My son had the aged New York steak and it was extremely tender and tasty. We were finished in time to make it to the theater on time, but we did not feel as though we had been rushed. We will definitely return!

This is our favorite restaurant at Jack London Square. Food is always consistently excellent. We often take visitors from out of town here and then wander down to the First and Last Saloon afterwards. Our meals this night were all excellent, portions good. I had a sea bass on special and it was one of the best meals I have had in a long, long time. It was seasoned beautifully, moist and flavorful and the vegetables served with it were perfect. My husband had the squid ink pasta (which he always has) and raved about it as well.
