it was Valentine's Day dinner. The waitress was attentive and very nice. Menu choices were different from our last visit and offered a nice selection.

Food was very tasty as usual and well-prepared. Server was great. However, very disappointed with the new large-plate portions that appear to have shrunken in size significantly since the advent of the new small/large plate menu. A la carte add on choices could profit by adding more healthful vegetable choices. Prices are quite hefty when one tallies up sufficient combinations of a la carte selections so as not to leave the restaurant hungry. By the way, the new policy of charging for bread sticks and no longer offering gratis rolls with large-plate meals seems pound foolish.

I've had better experiences at 30 Main. They were extremely crowded and the service reflected that. My friend's entree didn't arrive until I had almost finished mine. Our server said another server took my friend's entree when he/she shouldn't have. They did take the price of that late entree off the bill. The food was good and I'll go back but if this happens again, they're off my list.

I always order the pork tenderloin, and as usual, it was great! The sauce seemed different than before, so they may try to keep the standards fresh by changing little things along the way. My date enjoyed his meal as well, Mac&Cheese with pulled pork, then the burger with onion rings...he eats a lot.

New Year's Eve at 30 Main is the place to be! $60 price fix menu with your choice of incredible salads,yummy soup, fantastic appetizers, and outstanding entrees. Come on over, they are still serving dinner. Two floors of entertainment, a band and a DJ. $35 charge for an all night open bar. Valet parking. It is a win win situation.

Pretty bad all around. The service was chaotic, no one knowing what food items went to which table. Which is odd, because it was a set menu. Plus, it wasn't all that busy for New Year's Eve. The food was just okay. Went upstairs after dinner, where they had a band whose so-so singer was also out of tune most of the time; and the music was not very good. Everyone was expecting to dance. But you couldn't dance the music. The DJ downstairs wasn't much better. Decided to leave early, and ring in the new year at home. Very disappointed.

Went for an early date and ate near the bar area. Food was awesome . Pear salad was delicious . Chicken entree was even better. A real neighborhood gem with great ambiance. Can’t wait to go back!

My son and I visited 30 Main Bistro on Halloween after his tennis lesson. He loves salmon and eats it for the protein and health benefits for training in his sport. This restaurant offers various selections with salmon. He and I both had salmon(excellently done)! After lunch, we had tea, which was a Mighty Leaf selection(flavorful teas)! To top it off, the owner’s mother brought out cupcakes for Halloween! I would definitely return to this restaurant and would recommend this place to someone else!

My friends and I always choose 30 Main for our get together's. We meet about every 3 to 4 months during the early part of the week it is usually not too crowded so we can sit , chat and catch up. Our dinners were delicious and the service excellent. Mary Ann was our server and she was attentive but not intrusion. She let us enjoy our catch up conversation. We arrived at 6 p.m and didn't leave until a little after 9. It is always a treat to be at this Restaurant!!

30 Main is a nice looking place and the service was good, if not great. But my meal (chicken breast) and my wife's (short ribs) were poorly seasoned. Both tasted "gamey", and mine was overdone. We spent a lot of money on a dinner that just wasn't worth it.

The special sounded great, scallops, lobster, and calamari, but when it arrived there was only one very small piece of lobster, two small scallops. There was only one server for the entire restaurant and she had trouble finding our table. I guess we failed by not asking more about the special.

Came on the day of the Hunt and the Preakness, with a loud band and numerous buzzed and loud partiers.

It was also Villanova graduation weekend, which was why we reserved a table for 6 to celebrate the occasion.

The manager did take care of us, moved us further away from the noise and gave us some drinks.

We would've gone to another place if we'd have known the atmosphere. Second time we've had issues out of a half dozen times we've dined here. Food is good but parking and noise detract from the experience.
