Nice dining area. Salmon was done as requested, medium... excellent! Salad greens were fresh. Good artisan bread strips with pesto oil. Felt rushed with wait staff clearing plates, otherwise a nice place to have a casual dinner.

I am so thrilled that the Burrata and squash salad is back on the menu. Also that the eggplant and goat cheese flatbread made its way to the permanent menu!
We have been loyal diners since day one and we always love dining there.

Servers were very nice, however they took quite a bit of time taking our orders - long gaps between soup, entree and check. We had to get their attention.
So happy the tortilla soup is back on the menu!!

Flatbread soggy with hunks of unmelted cheese on top. Complained to management and they offered to replace it or just take it off the bill. We chose the latter.

We will miss Josh, the manager, who is headed back to Texas. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the sunset.

This was our first visit to pinstripes for lunch. We have been there many times for dinner, and have always had a good experience. Our lunch experience was not up to our usual dinner experience. The food was overpriced, the service was mediocre, and most importantly the food was just average. I do not think we will return for lunch.

Our friends and I come here almost every Thursday night to sit on the patio - the patio is so beautiful in the summer. They have recently added music on the patio. This past week Julius was the musician and his acoustic guitar was fabulous. We always have bracelet wine and either old fashioned or manhattans. The waitstaff is very friendly. The hummus platter is great and so are the flatbreads. The gnocchi ahi tuna is really good too. We also love the fire pit.

We really love pinstripes. My mom loves the salad. Tonight we had a few issues with our real coming the way we ordered it. But the manager made it right. Our server wasn't the most attentive. But overall we had a nice evening

The worst experience I have ever had at this restaurant. It took three tries to get my order correct. The waitress’ follow up was non existent. Even though my entrée was removed from the bill, after having to ask, management should have done more to make sure that my guests and I were happy. Dessert
would have been a nice gesture. I have dined at this spot many times over the years and never had a problem. Perhaps it was just an off night?

Our server was not knowledgeable or attentive. Not sure if he was new, but did not offer bread, had to ask about our order several times, and once our food arrived, he did not check back with our table. I did not like the minestrone soup & mentioned it to him. He didn’t offer to bring something else or ask why. He quickly grabbed our check without giving us a chance to tell him to split it, then returned to ask how he should split it. Not a very seasoned or experienced guy.

We really enjoyed the live music playing in the lobby, so that saved the night!

Could not sit outside at 6:00 pm when it was 85 degrees because they decided to light the fire pit with a lot of smoke.

Pinstripes is one of the best eating options in the area. The food is consistently delicious and a good value. It's easy to get a healthy or decadent meal and there's something for everyone on the menu. The only drawback was the bugs on the patio. I guess they were gnats and they were a nuisance.

It was beautiful outside so we sat under an umbrella for lunch on their patio. We also had a wonderful waiter that took care of everyone at the table with refilling drinks and checking on orders. It was a very nice experience for the eight of us.

We went to Pinstripes on Mother's Day. We made the reservation through Open Table and everything worked out great! They were very crowded but our table was ready, food was good. We had relatives in from out of town and it worked out perfectly.

Being Mother's Day the restaurant was hoping. The kitchen was backed up. The service was slow. Not the type of experience I usually have here. Not once did a Manager or was person come to our table to apologize for the delay. I was disappointed that this did not occur as it should have. The food was delivered hot and was terrific, but the service or should I say the lack of attention left a sour taste on the evening.

The appetizers were very good and the service was excellent, but my entree, chicken parmigiana, was a big disappointment.
