We wanted to eat outdoors and not on street level during Covid. This was a perfect place to do so. Wait staff was great. Food was good. Nice that they have so much open outdoor heated space right now!

The food was delicious! The service was excellent! We ate outside on the terrace which was set up very nicely. The portion sizes were perfect. Miguel was our server this time and last time it was hi mate. Both times are servers were polite, friendly and precise. It was a great dining experience!

The food and venue were both excellent. Unfortunately our server not so much. We paid for bottomless mimosas for two. He wasn’t attentive at all. He dropped food off to our table, saw glasses were empty and didn’t ask if we needed anything else or a refill. He told us “we used to leave a pitcher on the table but not anymore”. Then we asked why did another couple have a pitcher that was constantly refilled on their table? His response was “ idk I’ve already gotten in trouble for doing that and they’re not supposed to” Three minutes later we received a pitcher of mimosa. Also for whatever reason he had his shirt unbuttoned beneath his chest and his nose exposed above his face mask.

I do love the ambience of this restaurant - open, airy, and bright. The service was excellent. The food was very good. My only issue, is that there weren't great options for lunch. Normally they have a full lunch menu, and I understand times are tough right now, and options have to be limited, but there were plenty of full entree options available, so I'm not sure why they couldn't offer a few more lunch options.

Positano Coast is able to maintain its festive ambience even during COVID. They opened their windows to admit fresh air, spaced the tables a safe distance, and had a live jazz/R&B trio. They have had to reduce their menu a little, but not as much as some other restaurants.

Always love going to Positano Coast for brunch because of bottomless mimosas/sangria. The price is unbeatable.

Food this time was smaller portion, but everything was absolutely delicious still. Some of the best home fries I've had in the city.

Usually, it's packed for brunch so service is understandably a little slow. Food actually did come out really quickly so that was a good surprise. In the past, they have left carafes of the mimosas at tables, but this time they didn't, which may be because of COVID, but that slowed service because we had to wait for mimosas. Overall, still a 4.5/5

Outdoor dining per Covid restrictions.. 3pm reservation to meet my son who is at college in Philly. Meals were very good, but pricey. My diver scallops with risotto was $28 and only 3 scallops were served. My son enjoyed the veal & daughter had gnocchis. Good cocktail list & silver lining of covid, no problem parking.

First time dining at Positano Coast. I've walked by numerous times. The food and service was exceptional during these pandemic times. Initially, they were going to seat us outdoors but accommodated our request to dine indoors on a cold Saturday evening. We had the grilled octopus and burrata for starters. Then we shared the linguine, risotto and tagliatelle for our main dish. We closed it with the tiramisu and creme brulee. The linguine was our favorite. Highly recommend.
