The food at Christo’s is always good. I had the Halibut Athena which wax deli sous as usual. My husband had the Veal Saltimbocca which he enjoyed. Our waitress was a little overwhelmed and was hard to track down.

As usual, we all enjoyed an excellent dinner and service. We were celebrating a birthday and special care was taken to honor the birthday girl. This is why we keep coming back again and again. Thanks to all.

The Chilean sea bass was to die for. My wife and friend had the shrimp surf and turf and the filet mignon. Those were also wonderful.

The food was hit and miss. We all enjoyed the soup and salad. I had the chicken florentine and really enjoyed it. Both of the ladies in our group had the Scallops Menuire. The scallops were breaded instead of being pan seared. The ladies said that they would not order that dish again. However, the dessert was good and the service was very good. Hence the 4 start rating. Would recommend, but not recommend the Scallop entree.

We love Christo’s so much we invited my sister and BIL to dinner there in celebration of their wedding anniversary. They had nothing but praise for the restaurant. The food was terrific per usual. A great value and quality. We will definitely return very soon. It’s our favorite authentic Italian restaurant.

Food was perfect. Poached salmon was a big hunk of fish, served hot and done to perfection. Wait staff was on the ball. Food courses came out at just the right time. Water glasses never went empty. Plates were cleared as soon as finished. Very special night of dining. Cost was very reasonable for what we received. Will definitely be back. Will recommend this dining experience to anyone.

We hadn’t been to Christos in years and was very excited to be there. We had a 5:30 reservation, ordered drinks right away. By the time we ordered dinner, they were out of the the halibut special that we had been so looking forward to eating. Very disappointed 😞

Both the wine menu and the food menu had such an array of different items, it was so nice to see a truly full menu. I was pleasantly surprised to find out most meals come with both soup and salad. Our entrées were delicious and we even ordered dessert!

Food was not hot when served, the bread and dinner salad was just ordinary. This is our 3rd visit and the 1st one that we left underwhelmed.

We have been going to Christo's for years. The variety of things to order is very large, enough for anyone to find something great. And the food is always excellent. The management is very friendly and always checks with us to see how everything is. Meagan, the server we usually sit with has a great personality, and is always on point.
