The waitress was like a robot, but it seemed to be her personality, over a good experience. We had reservations and they got us right in.

We had returned after a long hiatus, due to Covid19. Always enjoyed going there for a pizza and salad and still do. I want to compliment the restaurant on making us feel safe. The tables were socially distanced properly; our waitress was extremely careful, properly masked, constantly changed her gloves when she retrieved dishes before serving food and drinks. We enjoyed going back there, and will return again.

The waitresses mask kept falling below her nose and she was pushing it up constantly.It was gross. Asked for salt and water twice. Never came. French fries were cold..chix sub was skimpy. Pasta dish was very good. Ceasar salad mediocre. Kids mac and cheese was on the menu but they don't have it (ever)
Sad..this place used to be very good.

we usually love going here. Tonight however not so much. we are on a low carb diet, but after geting some rather bad news decided to splurge. i wanted pasta. then i said oh polcaris had that bread and great oil. We were so excited. the waiter brought the "rolls and oil. the rolls were so incredibly stale. just gross. i can't believe they actually served them. then the dishes came simple chicken park and veal parm. The size of each one was crazy the veal was twice as small as the chicken. i know veal is more expensive but they also charge you more, and the pasta was sitting in a pool of water, thankfully it was served in a seperate dish. Awe bought a bottle to enjoy at home with our own " fresh" bread . not sure how quickly i will go back. i usually love it there.

Made a reservation on open table for 730 pm on Christmas eve. Within 5 minutes of getting there we were told the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. Ordered a drink that unfortunately I sent back as it was not good at all. When we sent the drink back we were told it was last call. The chicken tasted like fish, I'm sure it was fried in the same oil. That was sent back as well. The kitchen was now closed so we couldn't order anything else . The manager came over and apologized and took the meal off the bill, offered us to come back for dinner ..but all after a miserable holiday experience

Great food and value. Waitress was great, just a mess up in the kitchen that was a little bit of a bummer. Waitress was attentive and overcame the negative possible experience.
