Food was great- portions were just right, not too much pasta. Service was very friendly and efficient. A great variety in the selections, so will definitely be back to try other tasty options!

Food was delicious and service was great. The waiter was a little too aggressive. Kept coming over a filling glasses with wine without asking if we wanted more. When we requested to substitute an item in the menu he didn’t mention that there was an additional charge. When one person ordered a salad that was meant for 2 he didn’t tell us that. So be careful and ask questions. This water was slick.

It was great to have a simple and early New Years Eve dinner here with my husband. We came at just the right time before the NYE revelers came to the bar. Service was excellent and super professional, the food was hot, fresh, good quality and tasty. It was nice to have our last meal of the year here.

My husband and I tried this for the first time. The eggplant tower appetizer was very good. My husbands pork chop was great but the jumbo crab meat pasta was lacking flavor. Service was polite but there was a big lull between appetizer and meal where we needed drinks and an update on our food and that it was delayed.

This is one of our local “go to” places where the food and service are always good. Great pork chop!

The service was very slow. I brought my team in for lunch at 11:30. There were 7 of us and we weren't served our appetizers until 45 minutes later. We were one of the few folks in the restaurant at the time. The server wasn't very attentive. She served the wrong drink/food to the wrong folks-we corrected it ourselves. The food is very good. I enjoy the Manchego Salad each time I come here. The bread pudding was delicious.

We felt rushed from the start, despite having a reservation. Unimpressed with red wine options, prices. Martini made incorrectly despite instructions. Unable to accommodate salad preference. Noisy. Food ok, nothing special. Overall, a big disappointment. It’s on our boycott list for now.

I am a "regular" and wouldn't be if this restaurant didn't meet all standards. It's reliably good as far as food goes, nice variety...you can have a burger, sandwich, chicken, pasta, steak, pizza, fish, etc.....plus Joanne is the best waitress ever...always ask for her section. Sangria is good and atmosphere is nice. It can sometimes get loud in the way back near the windows, especially on a Saturday night if a big group is drinking, but otherwise no complaints from me. I will return again soon.

Our group has been here before and enjoy the food . I always have recommended it for a party or large group to family and friends This time we were a group of four and disappointed with the crab cake sandwich, which was not at par. Too much extenders, could hardly taste the crab. Pudding dessert was too sweet. Overall service was also below expectation. So sad

Chicken wings are excellent. My manchego salad was tasty as expected but the grilled chicken was not blackened enough/too wet and seemed sloppily done. Service was good, although our table needed to be cleared a few extra times. Overall, a good meal.

VERY NICE DINING AREA, THERE WERE SEVERAL SMALL DINING ROOMS WHICH OVERLAPPED WHICH MADE IT NICE AND MORE INTIMATE. EASY TO GET TO OFF RT1 AND PLENTY OF PARKING.
