    This restaurant is very good. The food is excellent especially the brunch. However, I was there this week for dinner, sat on the patio with a friend. the food was great but the service was not good. I started to make a list but, the bottom line is our server was friendly and nice but not attentive or intuitive at all. I hope this was a one off b/c I really like going here.

    Casual California/Palm Springs vibe with a truly excellent and eclectic menu. Crafted cocktails, and food that is thoughtfully prepared with quality local ingredients. The seasonal burrata with tomato jam, truffle fries, homemade meatballs and woodfired ribeye were among our favorites. Also loved the simple green salad with maldon flaked salt. We will be back! PS: The service was prompt and friendly, too.

    The service was very slow, wait staff was all but absent. Our burgers came out cold and very overcooked. The manager told me it was due to our ordering with moderations, ie. no bun or cheese..."moderations make it harder for the chef and they can't always get it right". Hmmmm, not sure how that works since the burger would have had to be cooked prior to not putting it on a bun, but okay. We won't go back.

    Our group had an excellent meal, and were able to totally enjoy a great live musical performance. Even sitting near the musicians, the ambience was great for either quiet listening or chatting together. The food was excellent, whether mussels, sausage, eggs and potatoes, chicken salad or a shrimp dinner, it was all delicious. Staff were so accommodating when our group arrived and ordered at different times. A fun group gathering for sure. roup arrived at fifferent times an

    Had a great meal; wagyu and tuna burgers were delicious. Kareage (fried chicken) appetizer was fun. Really enjoyed the Arboretum cocktail. Service was super friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere. The manager kindly arranged for us to migrate to an outdoor table for dessert. Happy to have this restaurant in my neighborhood.

    Overall: Great food, excellent service, and well priced. Highly recommend it as a date night place or even a gathering of friends. Food: The food was well prepared and came out how with great presentation. The half chicken entree was fantastic. The food shows the effort they put in to each dish. Service: Staff were hustling and bustling. Everyone was moving with purpose and were very attentive to everyone in the restaurant. Our server kept waters filled and checked in frequently. Lots of places would make excuses but Bianca is one where I can see leadership and accountability passed down to all staff. Ambience: They did a great job with greenery and letting the light in. It's youthful yet mature. Attire was spread across spectrum yet everyone fit from those wearing Oxfords to Sneakers. It's a flex atmosphere. Value: Everything form drinks and food are well priced. You are getting what you pay for in quality and service. Where I am still troubled with most places of this great value is tipping is still on the customer. Bianca can take the next step in its model to account for paying service people and getting rid of the dated model of tipping because that was the only drag in the experience.

    My family and I tried Bianca for Father’s Day after having seen it reviewed on Phantom Gourmet. It was fantastic! The service was impeccable. Our server, Amanda was very attentive and helpful in navigating the menu. The managers were also coming to each table frequently to check on things. The food was amazing. I had the pepperoni pizza with the ranch dipping sauce. The pizza was crispy and flavorful and the toppings were delicious! The Caesar salad was so flavorful - best I’ve had and I eat them often at restaurants. My husband had the veal tomahawk, which was delicious (I had a taste!) but small. He also had the brussel sprouts on the side and they were delicious! The butterscotch pudding for dessert was incredible / so light and scrumptious! You have to try it! Yum! The prices are a bit high but overall $16 for pudding) but aside from that, I highly recommend Bianca. The decor is pretty cool, too. We will definitely go again. Just great!!!

    My second visit to Bianca was for brunch and it did not disappoint! The decor inside the restaurant is great and the breakfast pizza was delicious. My only advice is to perhaps make the brunch menu a bit more extensive, but I understand that while serving a full lunch menu as well this may not be possible. We were able to enjoy several drinks and lively conversation over our food and will definitely return for brunch again sometime!

    The sushi and sashimi were outstanding. The pizza is too oily and “wet”. The dish of hummus is large and they do not provide you with enough dipping bread and vegetables. They charged an additional $3 for another piece of bread! The service was very poor. Not attentive.

    Reservation was honored. Seated quickly. Drink and food orders taken within 10 minutes of being seated. Drinks arrived promptly. Twenty minutes after drinks told kitchen backed up but food out shortly. Forty minutes later appetizers and entrees arrived together. All in all, food decent but kitchen operations need a lot of work. Waitress was very kind and apologetic but was unable to help get food out of kitchen. Why is a mystery as didn't appear things were that crowded.

    The ambience on outdoor patio (on Rte 9 side) was fabulous. Waiter was excellent and attentive. My meal was just OK, not outstanding and I felt that the prices were a bit pricey. My caesar salad couldn't compare with the same at Legals, that has large chunks of real parmesan and a real caesar dressing. I would only return for the atmosphere outdoors.

    Wonderful date night dinner! The weather was perfect, and we were able to sit outside on the patio. Rusty Cat cocktail was delicious - perfect gin drink for a early June night. Enjoyed the hamachi and the burrata for apps, my salmon was cooked perfectly and my date loved his burger. Crispy Brussels sprouts also rounded out the meal. Butterscotch pudding and panna cotta for dessert... Great service, friendly staff. We'll be back!

    Great outdoor seating although noisy. Food was a bit overcooked. My son had strip steak…his birthday treat and it really wasn’t very good for the price. My husband had the cod and it was over cooked. I enjoyed my French dip , the fries were great and the cookies were great We will return but mostly because of good outdoor seating
