Lovely scenery. Very elegant. Food was marvelous and it felt great to dine there.
Outstanding Italian! Top shelf bar! Highly recommended.
Good food and great service. Little pricey but good quality.
Further out from the hustle and bustle of FSU, but well worth the drive for graduation dinner. Great food, good service, and lovely atmosphere!
It was a nice restaurant with good Italian food and at an affordable price. I would have like the bread accompanying the food warm and not cold, but in general good quality-price related.
Was able to dine on the outdoor patio which was wonderful!
Wendy, our server was great! Very attentive!
The food was delicious. One couple selected the Soecial and enjoyed it!
Portion size large and enjoyed the leftovers!
Always reliably delicious
Bar for appetizers and drinks before being seated in the dining area was excellent. Service, pricing and food was extremely well worth the price!
Can’t say enough about our entire experience from the time we walked till we walked out was excellent
Our waiter Phil was friendly and professional. We had excellent service and it was an enjoyable birthday dinner.
Walked in to deathly quiet.
My pasta with white wine sauce was so salty I couldn’t eat it.
Would never return
Superb food and dessert
Great service, Rose or Rosie, she was lovely
The escargots were beyond belief, yum!
John and Beth Salak
We have been a fan of the restaurant for years. Great food and atmosphere for any occasion!
The food and service were excellent
Bartender was wonderful and ended up being our server too.
Everything was 5-Star Plus!!!! The escargot appetizer was fabulous.
The salads, the main courses were all delicious, tasty and large
portions. We HIGHLY recommend Mom and Dad's.
The best place for date nights in Tallahassee
Want to give Mom & Dad’s high marks, but in good conscience can’t. Service, with one unsavory exception, and ambience are excellent. The issue is the food. Generally the seafood dishes and sides are very good, or better. BUT, across several meals, our experience is the pasta and chicken dishes leave much to be desired. On this most recent occasion the eggplant was burned, the manicotti overcooked, and the red sauce tasted like it came from a cafeteria can. Previous experiences included unappetizing/bland chicken piccata that was breaded/tasted like country fried steak. As mentioned, the seafood dishes have been very good, as have been the sides. We cannot comment on the red meat dishes as we’ve been reticent to try them based on our other experiences here. It’s a shame that a higher end Italian themed restaurant consistently falls short in its themed offerings. Regrettably we cannot recommend this establishment, and will likely not again frequent it ourselves.
Loved this place even gave flowers out for Valentine’s Day!
Valentine's Day- Really great experience and truly appreciate some of the detailed touches like the complimentary champagne, rose, and chocolate strawberries!
Love the ambiance, the food was delicious. Reservations helped we had no wait. Only thing we had to ASK for complementary bread while waiting on food.
Always a great experience. Has been a favorite for us for over fifty years even before relocating to present location.
Been there many times and it never disappoints...the Tuscan Delmonico was amazing!
I enjoyed the food. It had large portions and was delicious.
My only complaint was we sat on the outside porch and the gnats were terrible. Next time I will go inside.
Great service and waitress. Vey helpful. We arrived early snd were seated right away!!!
The restaurant is beautiful. The service was very good. The food is good.
Great place. Food was outstanding - so was the service. Beautiful restaurant.
I love everything about my visit! The food was mouth-watering and the service was superb! I will definitely be back!
The service was wonderful. Very attentive. The buildout is beautiful. The food was not good at all. I ordered the special, Grouper Piccata. It was overdone and dry. The sauce was more like a gravy and not flavorful. My husband ordered the clams with extra garlic. It came with no garlic and no flavor. We will not be going back.
Maria our server was awesome. Her suggestions were on point. The atmosphere was very cozy.
Mom and Dad‘s Service was impeccable. The food was off the charts. Trevor Howard, the general manager was a gracious host. The host staff, the white staff and the bartenders were all exceptional. Highly recommend this experience to anyone looking forward to a wonderful night out. Diana ‘s steak (The menu name for what I ordered) was a ribeye that was cooked perfectly. The entire experience left a very positive impression. We will be back!
Outstanding place. Service and food was fantastic. The only thing I would change is the music. I remember the original Mom and Dads on the parkway and the music consisted of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, etc. The old greats. Modern music, in my opinion, just made it feel less special than what it once was and took away from the ambiance. Just my opinion.....
Thank you for taking the time to review us! We always appreciate suggestions from our customers, we will pass it on to our staff!
Great experience and I plan on visiting again soon!
Love this place. Great food, great staff both friendly and professional. Love music was a welcomed surprise. Planning our next date night soon.
The restaurant has a nice ambiance. However the food is average. Not what we anticipated. Service and server were good.
Delicious food. Excellent service. Welcoming and safe environment.
Wonderful venue, great food, very good service! We love mom and dads!
Pasta was over cooked and sauce was burnt, but the cheese curds where amazing. Waitress was great and had good humor.
I did not like the food at all the atmosphere was good costumer service great I really enjoyed that.
Nice place, food was good.
Only issue: ordered food and 30 min later, they tell us they’re out of Penne.. No big deal but quite unfortunate.
