The restaurant décor was very nice and you are able to have a nice conversation while seated during your meal. The Meal was fantastic with everything we ordered. The service was outstanding with an attention to detail. Our servers were on top of all of our requests. I highly recommend this restaurant and I will be returning. Again... Outstanding.

We have been here many times and this time the food was not good, service was terrible. Every time we needed something we could never find the waiter and he never checked on us.

Overall a good experience. Dishes didn’t quite have the wow factor they used to from one of my favorite restaurants. The service although class it was definitely not the standard that they’ve had in the past. For a restaurant with a history of excellence and the prices that they charge it was a little disappointing. Still the food was good and the service was OK. Hopefully they will fully recover from the pandemic year and bring back the excellence that I know this restaurant has in it.

We love this place but truthfully, they are starting to cut some corners. Calamari not nearly as good as it used to be. Bread was stale. Our server, Adam, was awesome!

Made a reservation on open table and confirmed it twice since it was a special birthday. Got there 15 minutes prior to reservation told the hostess we would be at the bar she said they’re cleaning our table now and would be right over to get us. She never came, I walked to her and she said we now are going to have to sit inside, ahe doesnt have a table. I told her I made a reservation for outside and confirmed she said they were busy and gave our table away! This is after she knew exactly where we were sitting and told us she would come over and get us when it was ready! We said we would wait at the bar for another table again no table! I spoke with the manager , he said he would sit us and find a table. I saw him bring out two more tables and said it would be just a few minutes. He gave both tables to other couples. Speaking with him again he told us he was getting a table ready ...this is now over an hour and a half after waiting! He offered to buy us a drink from the bar because of their mistake. The drink never came. Then a waiter didn’t come for 20 min. The food took over an hour after ordering. My point being if you’re that busy do not open that many reservations if you can’t handle the crowd! What is the point of open table if they do not honor the reservation at the restaurant ?

I made a reservation well in advance with a request to be outside since the weather was expected to be nice. This was for my 25 year anniversary. I included that in the notes with the online reservation. We make it a point to go here at least 4-6 times a year if not more since it is a family owned company with great food and service.

Unfortunately, when I arrived - apparently because other parties booked who needed the nice outdoor space and seating - I was moved inside. Not ideal and was really hoping to be outside. After checking in - the girls said we have a small high top for you here inside next to the bar. Again - strike two - at a very small not elegant table. If I was there for a normal quick meal I would be ok sitting there but since it was a special occasion - not good. We went back outside to be told they could seat us at one of the bar high tops - behind a larger group who was a bit loud. We ended up sitting at the bar in the end where all of the servers get drinks since it was the only spot with a little more room. While the food was good - not up to the standard normally which is always fantastic and the service is typically amazing. Since the bar staff was down a person and there was no bar back (we knew this cause we had no choice but to hear a lot of the going’s on) it was difficult.

The meal was over $150 and we left a very generous tip because I don’t think the staff should be penalized for some things that should have or could have been avoided.

If my requested table for a special occasion is no longer available after some larger parties then book seating - I would expect at least a phone call to let me know. Because if I new our table arrangement wasn’t available I would have likely ent someplace else this time.

Again - I am. A big fan of the restaurant but this experience was not very good and am a little disappointed.

I am not sure if it will impact how often I go but with now have the seating issue twice in 3 weeks it may impact me.

We were in the area looking for a good lunch place. Had not heard of Macaroni’s before but it turned out to be a great choice.

The pizza and lamb chips were great as was the good selection of wines by the glass. We will for sure return when we are in the area again.
