Lovely evening on their outside patio. Very professional and smooth service. Appropriately spaced tables and servers all wore masks. Superb food. Now we remember why we missed coming here so much!

We love OMBRA! A favorite for a special occasion, or even just drinks and apps at the bar.

We were seated promptly. The server pronounced all of the Italian words as Spanish words. He did not indicate the prices of the specials, so we had to ask. I asked for no potatoes with my entree, but he insisted on whipped potatoes on the side. When it was served, the mashed potatoes were all over the entree. It ruined my entire meal since I don't eat potatoes. The wine we ordered was "our of stock" so we were forced to order a normally $12 wine for $52. The service and failure to follow my requests is inexcusable.

We were extremely pleased with our dinning experience. We had a fabulous waiter by the name of Jonathan who was extremely helpful and his recommendations were spot on.
We will definately be back. The spinach ravioli with the braised veal is a must have.

First restaurant we’d ventured out to since start of pandemic and although the food was excellent, the service was mediocre. You’d think with capacity capped at 25 % and social distancing in effect, the service would be exceptional but it almost felt like we were intruding. Could be everyone is still trying to get back up to speed. But expected better.

Ombra is back better than ever!! Safe practices all around, masks, gloves, sanitized table and temperatures taken of customers coming in. Menu simplified, but still really good, with some new additions. Staff is great and a lot of fun to be around!

Our waiter Anthony was very friendly, remembered we were there recently. He was very knowledgeable about the wine list & each dish we questioned him about. Ombra is very nicely decorated & clean. Food, wine & dessert was fabulous.

Visit was good. Not our best experience there but food was good. The calamari is excellent. Chicken parm was not as good as I remembered. Bruschetta , which isn’t on menu, is excellent.

We had an amazing birthday dinner at OMBRA! We sat outside, and they did a great job making the experience upscale while still practicing social distancing. Our waiter Anthony was top notch and gave us delicious recommendations for what to order. We will definitely be back!

Eddie is the best. We sat outside and it was such a great evening. Bean soup, carpaccio, veal, special ravioli and salmon. All were wonderful included a great bottle of wine and someone had the tiramisu and said it was wonderful but they did not share. Always a great experience!!

The food was very good, but the outside dinning was not working very well. We didn't get drinks very often, and the 6 ft rule wasn't being observed very well.

The staff did not wear mask, which made us uncomfortable.

Ombré did a wonderful job with setting up alfresco dining in the patio near the front of the restaurant. The price fixed menu for Mother’s Day included nothing but wonderful options. The service was terrific and the food outstanding! We forgot how special it was to dine out.

We Knew nothing about this restaurant, a friend rerecorded.. we were taken back how beautiful the restaurant is, the food was super delicious with generous portions, the wait staff were super helpful. We ate there Monday, and then again Tuesday, only reason we did not go there Wednesday and Thursday the last days of our vacation was that the State forced all restaurant not to serve food due to Coved_19. highly recommended place and great value for the money.. whatever you do, you need to order their Muscles, their sauce is amazing.. Alas they don't have a branch in New York, were we live.
