    Loved the food, service was impeccable. Disappointed by the wine list-no bottles under $60. Main dishes were way overpriced. Otherwise great experience would go again.

    Food was very good. Able to share plates, family style dishes. Waitresses have been able to accommodate 9 people table. Music was a little bit too loud and due to the large number of people we had to order pretty fast the drinks and the food. The burrata/ prosciutto plate does not come with bread …

    Just posted an extensive Google review, but it came down to really subpar service, starting with a 20 min wait for a reserved table. Food overall was really good (a couple dishes were just pretty good), but we were there from 7:30 to 9:45, due mainly for having to wait for long stretches of time throughout. With all the hype, I expected a much better experience. We probably won’t return.

    First I did not know it was not the real Che fico, location was on the ground level with Low ceilings. The food was good but very expensive for what it was. We were told that it was family style so ordered accordingly then the food all came at once even though we were told it would come in 15 minutes separated from each other. The waiter shrugged his shoulders and half apologized. Then the floor manager came over to see what was going on it was very loud in the back corner that we were put in and it seemed as if she was shouting to be heard one of my party got upset with that and asked her to stop shouting. By that time the meal was ruined then five minutes later the chef left the kitchen to come in tell us not to treat his people that way. All of this and I noticed that they were going to charge us 10% on top of everything to pay the staff which I don’t know why it couldn’t come out of the $40 spaghetti price. So probably will never go here again.

    Service was slow and not consistent, not as accommodating as before, which is fair, but what was disappointing was the food. I would pay more to keep the quality that was high versus paying the same price for a low quality. The heirloom tomato salad had half of the tomato, the cheese, pepper, and noodle on the cacio e Pepe was mediocre, and the lasagna was overcooked and dry. Sure there was tomato sauce but literally a spoonful for the whole piece enough to cover just the top layer.

    Experienced a series of turn-offs over the course of the evening. Here’s one example. My girlfriend ordered coffee. They serve it in a French press which they bring to the table. It contains about 2.5 cups of coffee. I asked for a cup so that i could have some of the coffee that had been served. Their response was, we will have to charge you for the cup… meaning they were going to charge me for a second French press of coffee, even though i just wanted part of the serving my girlfriend had already received. Basically - a split charge for the coffee service. Super annoying. I could go on, but the bottom line is, we are not going back.

    Ambiance dark, lively (noisy), charming, casual in a nice way. Service was excellent….very attentive. Daughter and I had toasted focaccia with the Tuscan butter, clams pasta, suckling pig, plain sautéed spinach, budino. Still not sure what the Tuscan butter was….would have preferred plain butter. Pasta was VERY al dente which we didn’t care for. But the flavor was great. Portion size medium. If you order just that, you would need something else. The pig was sold as crunchy chewy but we were pleasantly surprised with crunchy crispy. So good….Yum!! Portion was very generous. Plain spinach surprisingly flavorful. Budino ok. I definitely would come back!

    Great food! Be prepared they do add a 10% service fee which is not a tip in any way. This is strictly to support staff benefits & a livable wage. We had the focaccia, the fried risotto, cacio e Pepe & the sausage pizza all of it was divine! Even a great selection of wine by the glass. 10/10 would go back!

    Always happy to pop in here for a delicious bite. We're huge fans of the way they do Cacio e Pepe and that's usually what draws us in. The mortadella with fresh bread is an unlikely app for us and also a must. Last night we shared the swordfish special too. It was topped with a perfect amount of fresh herbs in a gremolata sauce. Of course, we had a 1/2 carafe of wine, Thye always have interesting selections

    Food was delicious and highlighted fresh ingredients with the session. Service was excellent. The only part of the dining experience that created unease was the “Dining In Charge,” a 10% fee with a postcard delivered with the check explaining its purpose. All for leaving gratuity for a wonderful experience, but is 20% on top of 10% appropriate or if we leave 10% is this shortchanging what our server would otherwise receive for their efforts?

    Our server(s) were attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious. My old knock is the park keys are very cold at night. With wind the heaters were mostly ineffective. Having blankets would have been great. Lol. Would highly recommend. Now we want to go to the other restaurant of David’s. Thank you. It was worth 15 minutes trying to park 🤪

    I came for the Reeve wine event. The food was great as were the wines, but they never listed the prices on the Reeve wines and when the bill came they were $35 for a flight and $30 for a glass. When you’re pouring wines that are this expensive you should let people know first.
