This restaurant was over by far the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. The service was slow and couldn’t remember drink orders. The food was small portions for a “family style size”. Fed closer to one person. Example the stuffed mushrooms came out as 4 tiny mushroom maybe the size of a quarter. The crabs legs were priced at $60 a lb for that price I was appalled. Even so I would expect at that price they would be delicious but they were dry and bland. The beer was flat when it finally came out after our meals. Overall this was the worst dinning experience I ever had. I would recommend Red Lobster over dinning here. Terrible. For 5 people the bill was well over $300 for a normal meal. A few appetizers and an entree each. Not a $30 under entree place.

Food was very good. We had the Crab Balls appetizer, sautéed Crab dinner and Broiled Shrimp Stuffed with Crab. However, they don’t offer you bread with the meal.

The server barely checked on us. Within an hour and half of being here we saw our server, 4 times and that was all prior to getting food

The overall service was great. Very friendly and customer service devoted staff. I ordered the clam, clams, shrimp and scallops over linguine, ever thing taste good, only thing was some of the she'll mussels were not hot, but appeared fresh. Appetizers were abit pricey given the serving size portions. Given the location i dressed accordingly, but when i got there I felt over dressed giving the atmosphere, but yet comfortable. I would certainly visit again in the near future.

The food was ok. I was not impressed. I have been to other seafood establishments and I can honestly say this place was nothing to write home about! I advised my server that I had anything allergy and I asked her to make sure plz nothing was prepared with nuts. The cheesecake came & I asked her is this nut crust & she didn't know! I asked for the manager & the manager didn't know the cheesecake was not prepared in-house so needless to say... I will NOT be visiting DiNardo's again!

The service was very slow. It took well over 20 mins for my party to be recognized after being seated. My entree was horrible. The baked potato was hard as if it was over cooked in the microwave and the salmon was very dry looking. I attempted to eat some of the potato but I did not touch the salmon at all. My date said it was dry. Furthermore, the desert was didn’t taste fresh. The only thing that I enjoyed was my cocktails from the bar. My experience was horrible and I would never choose DiNardos again. The server didn’t try to accommodate me at all when I complained about my food. She said “take it home to your dog” as if it was dog food.

Wanted to try a different place for Restayrant week and was disappointed the Mussels were empty shells the entree was small In size (kids meals are bigger elsewhere)and not attractive and not appetizing. I should have went to Chima’s. The bartender though was very pleasant.

The food was good, the service wasn’t so good. It seemed like the kitchen couldn’t keep up with the orders coming in so it was a bit of a wait and it seemed like there was only 1 server and a bartender filling in as a server on a Friday night. It was restaurant week so I expected it to be a little busy but it seemed like they just weren’t prepared for it.

It took a hour for my food to come out. My chicken was over cooked, I sent it back and they returned the same piece of chicken to me. The pasta was very nasty also.

I thought that the food would take a dip in quality because of Restaurant Week. I was wrong in my thought. The food wasn't rushed and was as delicious as expected. The service and environment we're top notch. Well done.
