Have dined at the “579” location many times as a couple and also with family throughout the past 65 years. The food and service has never disappointed.

Well , my girlfriends and I were originally going for the pre fix meal , but fell of that track lol we started with little necks, oysters, shrimp cocktail , so fresh .. then we ordered the fig pizza with arugula amazing!! And of course nachos , service was spot on I believe her name was Sarah , she was excellent ..
This place will be in my rotation ! Great job

Great Meal and loved supporting Restaurant week! Julie was a fabulous waitress and the food was delicious. Have to try the Sangria next time, it looked really good, and I felt like we were the only ones who didn't have it.
Only critique, and its small, is that we were not totally finished with the appetizer and the entree arrived leaving us to have to move plates around to make room for it. We saw this at a few tables. Would have liked just a few more minutes in between services. On another high note, they swapped out the dessert that had bananas for strawberries without question. Great experience overall!

Food was exceptional. Everything we had from raw bar to the grilled meatloaf and chicken parmigiana was delicious. The waitress was very polite and professional. The only issue was service was definitely on the slower side, other than that it was great.

We had a great meal, but I had asked for a birthday recognition for my son. But they did nothing. I thought maybe they did not do anything, but prior to leaving they did it for a table close to us.

The food and the service were excellent. I had the Lobster Cardinale and my husband had 2 appetizers: Korean ribs and smothered tater tots, he really enjoyed them both. For dessert we split a Ben and Jerry Buzz Buzz. It was their coffee with chocolate chip ice cream with peanut butter whiskey. It was yummy! They also have oyster, shrimp and clams on ice for $1 / piece, great deal.

We went for dinner on NYE and it was very, very good. I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and sometimes find the quality of the food inconsistent. They did an OUTSTANDING job this time and truly hope they keep it up the good work!

We used to LOVE this place but now we won’t go back. We waited 25 mins after our reservation to be seated and got rushed out prior to our 2 hour limit. Drinks were weak. Food was just ok. Wait staff was awful.

I am so glad we went. the dress is casual, however, when you get in the restaurant looks so beautiful and fine-dining like... dim lighting, waiters in jeans, tvs on the walls. The food was amazing, prices were fine-dining priced, but worth the money.

I have been here many times before and it is normally amazing. However, this time the food was a bit disappointing. I brought my parents and husband for a birthday dinner, and unfortunately everyone's food was terribly salty. Hopefully, this was a one time thing, because it's normally great!
