I brag about how good the food is however, today, Mother’s Day, the food was so bad! Although, I also didn’t enjoy my meal, I was really pooped that my mother didn’t enjoy hers as I was striving to make sure she had a good day. The steak had absolutely no flavor. The only thing we enjoyed was the sautéed spinach and the lemonade.

I was excited to try this restaurant out as I love Italian food. I did enjoy my meal which was the spaghetti with clams and the burrata as an appetizer. However, the service was only okay. They brought out multiple pasta dishes that my table did not order. Even though we told them it was incorrect, they added it to the bill. We were able to tell our waiter the mistake and he quickly corrected it. The restaurant itself was very hot/stuffy. Also it was quite loud as well.

Ignore what the outside looks like and just go in and you’ll be so pleasantly surprised! Our server was EXCELLENT- Adrienne was on top of everything and gave us great recommendations for food! Drinks were beautiful and tasty, food was delicious and it was so nice and well decorated inside. Our only negative experience was the lady in the front with seating, she was very abrupt and rude. However, everyone else was very pleasant. The prices are high but it was a great date night and we would absolutely return again!

My husband and I visited the restaurant for our anniversary because there was a particular (online) menu item that we wanted. When we arrived we were seated at our reservation time, comfortably with a great view. The QR code menu the table did not have the special we had seen online but the manger was still able to make exactly what we wanted. The wait staff was incredible, the food was amazing and we enjoyed our dining experience!

The “hostess” Thomas was not accommodating. We wanted to sit at the bar which was empty and he said we had to sit exactly where our open table seating was “outside”- there was plenty of seating at 3:30pm. My friend had a boot on her foot and he sat us at the furthest table from the front door and then we waited 22 minutes to have water and place our drink order.

The ambiance is delightful. The hummus with olives was delish and so were the artichokes. Our actual server was nice and friendly.

I took my friend to Positano for her birthday. We sat at a small table for two, near a table of 3 loud men. It wasn’t awful, but I wish it had been a little more special.

This was by far one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had in my life. Our server James P was very unpleasant and unfriendly as if he did not want to serve us. We started by ordering bottled water. James P brought out the water sitting it on the opposite side of the table and walking away! Anything extra that we wanted to order for example another round of drinks, had to be ordered through the bus boy, while James P was about 15feet away from us but acting as if we didn’t exist. When our food arrived we were missing an entree, which took an extra 25 minutes to come out. My friend was completely finished her meal before mines came out. My fish was prepared very poorly. We all know that when you leave skin on fish, it’s to be served skin side up with crispy skin. The skin was soggy and inedible. When shown to James P it was brushed off. I have never been so offended or made to feel as if I didn’t belong somewhere in my life as I was made to feel this day.

Service was great drinks were good food was ok. Very loud, they could use some acoustic tiles on the ceiling to absorb some of the noise. We enjoyed our time there (brunch) but in my opinion felt it was a bit overpriced. We all agreed the drinks and the fries were the best part of our meal.
