We usually love the food here! We ordered a decent red wine - served too cold. The caprese salad was a disappointment - also served too cold and with tasteless tomatoes. The focaccia delicious. The mussels always good with a nice light tomato sauce. We tried one of the specials- veal medallions with foie grais and black truffle demi-glace. Delicious but a bit pricy at $49 for the entree. My husband enjoyed the very creamy pistachio ice cream. Service was excellent - always attentive but without interrupting our conversation. We'll be back.
Delicious as always! Server was very attentive & personable.
We celebrated an anniversary with friends from the island. Excellent food and wine...
Always love your restaurant. Like your new manager. Very helpful
The service and food at Ombra was good quality. The ambiance was dark and calm which allowed for a quiet dinner.
Food was great! Big portions. Service excellent.
Very friendly atmosphere and great food
Awesome as always! Our favorite restaurant on HHI!
Best Italian restaurant in Hilton Head! Amazing!
We enjoyed the food ore than our friends. They were looking for basic spaghetti and meatballs. Caprese salad is excellent along with chicken Milanese.
Everything was great
While on vacation, my husband and I were able to get out for a date night while grandma and papa watched the kids. We chose Ombra because it got great reviews. It did not disappoint! The wine, food and service were excellent. We had the scallops for an appetizer, I had the veal and my husband had the filet. We finished with the molten chocolate cake for dessert - everything was absolutely delicious! Thank you for a great night out!
Excellent meal. My wife and I.both have had the halibut special and it was excellent. The Gorgonzola salad also is a must do.
Food and service were both exceptional.
Excellent food!!! Service was a little slow but the restaurant was SO busy due to the Heritage Golf Tournament. Three people recommended this restaurant to us as their favorite and it did not disappoint. We’ll be back!
one of our favorite restaurants when we visit HH. the food is always good and the service is exceptional. excellent value for what you get.
Fabulous find!!! We are bringing friends back on Thursday!
Love this restaurant! The food is so good. It does get loud in there, but totally worth the whole experience.
was a wonderful experience "except for the noise level". could hardly hear my wife across the table
Ombra Cucina has become our favorite Italian restaurant on Hilton Head Island. They have a great Italian wine list and a wide variety of dishes at fair prices. Manny is our favorite server. Our last visit though was marred by a table of 6 who were so loud we had trouble conversing at our table. I wish management asked them to tone it down a few hundred decibels.
Super food and service
great food, big portions and reasonable prices. manager is extremely attentive and ensures great service. we dined here 3 times during our two week stay and look forward to returning.
The abieance of the restaurant is nice. You are also able to have a conversation with little or no background noise. We really like to take our friends to early dining. The selections are exquisite and priced right. Gloria has been our hostess who is very friendly, always polite. You don't get this specially service everywhere. She is a jewel. The portions are just right. We leave pleasantly filled. Great job Ombre!!
We dined at Ombra with the family and had a very enjoyable experience. Adam was our server and he was very attentive. The ambiance was excellent and everything I expect from a fine-dining Italian restaurant. The wine list is extensive so be prepared. It is located in a strip mall but so are all the others on the island and you don’t notice it once inside. I recommend the nightly chef specials, as I enjoyed the handmade black truffle ravioli. Delicious, as was the lemon sorbet (served in an actual lemon)! I would definitely return again next trip down.
OMBRA was a nice surprise to other seaside Italian fare. A comfortable ambience with casual diners, it provides a level of service and cuisine that one would find in a fine metropolitan restaurant. I was there with my son as part of a golf trip. We split the calamari to start. It was a large portion that can easily be shared. Lightly fried, it was delicious. I had the beet and goat cheese salad on arugula - a tangy presentation. We both chose the veal chop for our main. Finished a perfect medium rare and served over sauteed spinach and mashed Yukon holds, it was definitely in my top five ever. While no high end wines by the glass (Barolo maybe), I found a Nobile di Montepulciano that was acceptable.
Have never had a bad meal at Ombra. Food, service, selection and wine list are top notch. Will be back again!!
Good quality Italian cuisine. Menu choice excellent. Had problem making up my mind.
Ombra is one of the most consistent dining experiences anywhere; always excellent! And Easter Brunch was no exception! Limited choices of course, being a brunch but a good selection of soup, salads, entrees and desserts to please your palate. And Ned was a delightful server having been at Ombra since opening over 6 years ago. He was especially helpful in pairing wines for the various offerings and was very helpful without being obtrusive. Ombra is probably our overall favorite HHI dining establishment (Jazz Corner doesn’t count).
Our favorite place on Hilton Head. Wait staff friendly, knowledgeable and spot on service. Food delicious and fresh. The best!
Meal was very nice. The staff at the front door was not very accommodating. In fact, they were a little brusque. Al in all a good meal however.
Typically one of our favorite restaurants on the island. This time was a bit disappointed. The ravioli were salty and risotto undercooked.
We really enjoyed the food!
This was our second visit and it was as excellent as the first time. Ambiance and service was superb. Food was excellent
We will return again
The food was very good, albeit a little salty. The pastas are all fresh made and delicious. The ribbolita soup is delicious! They were very accommodating of food allergies. The service was good but I think since they were busy there was a little attention lacking. The wine menu is EXTENSIVE :-) Overall a good place to try.
Delicious food, the best calamari I have ever had! Friendly staff, great atmosphere and great service. All 4 of us enjoyed our food very much. A little on the pricey side but huge portions and excellent food. Worth every penny!
OMBRA has a really excellent menu of items to chose from and the cuisine & service are both outstanding. Also a nice wine selection. The only problem is that we did have left overs. For the very 1st time in our dining-out experience, which is over 35 years, when we got ready to re-heat the leftovers, we had been given those belonging to some other diner, so had to throw them out. That was disappointing due to how good they would have been !
Absolutely perfect. There is an early menu that was $28.00 for a 3 course meal that was very similar to the regular menu. Loved it and would do it again. Very cozy on a cold and rainy evening.
great food and a welcoming staff in a very comfortable environment. one of the best
We had a wonderful meal. Service was excellent.
Ombra is our favorite restaurant on Hilton Head and we've always found the food to be exceptional. We decided to dine there for our anniversary and once again it was incredibly good. My wife chose the Veal Allo Nino Bergese and she stated it was the best veal dish she had ever eaten. I chose the Branzino special and it was simply mouth watering. Ombra has a very nice wine list and I chose a bottle of Greco di Tufo wine which complemented our meals very nicely. Our server provided outstanding service and appeared at the appropriate time throughout the meal. I highly recommend Ombra and we will dine there again the next time we travel to Hilton Head.
