    Food was very poor quality. Service was a bit slow. Probably won’t be going back again.

    Great value for money, I had enough leftover for a second meal. Salad was top notch, and service was great. Reservations are a great idea.

    It was a good meal with an outstanding server, the food was lovely and our waitress was attentive without being over bearing! It was rather loud but that’s to be expected of a family restaurant, overall a very good experience!

    We arrived and it took 50 mins for them to take our order, then kids meals came out and took over a 1/2 hr for the adult meals to come out. Kids where finished and wanted to leave. We where suppose to get all you could eat soup/salad and bread . The brought out some but never came back to see if we wanted more. Meals came out incorrectly and my husband wanted to get a drink but no one came to check on the table. When we asked if they where short staffed the server said they weren’t…. Not a great experience.

    We were seated in the bar area which I was not my preference. The dish I ordered was way too spicy for me (not EM's fault!) but I took most of it to my son who happens to really like that dish. The "warm" brownie with ice cream and caramel sauce was not warm and hard to cut through with a fork either because it was too cold or too dry. Overall it was okay but was not a restaurant I would rush back to experience.

    We first sat without being greeted for 15 minutes, and then our entrees were out within 10 minutes.. even before our appetizers had arrived which led to a very poorly paced meal. I will say that the entrees we had were delicious.. however the iconic bread was cold in the middle. The host team was incredible, dealing with a full porch effectively and quickly.. however the waiting staff and pacing of the meal truly left something to be desired. I love this restaurant and frequent it, so I know this was just an off night.. but disappointing nonetheless.

    The food was only ok, the salad had almost no dressing on it and the pasta sauce wasn’t rosé, the mushrooms in the pasta were old. We were seated in the bar and the service was ok but no checked to see if our food was ok and we never got Parmesan offered at all or any drink refills.

    Service was outstanding But, in our opinion, the food was lacking. We ordered 2 pasta dishes that came with salad & bread. The bread was the best of the three. Each of the 2 ‘ individual‘ salads were enough for 4 to 6 people. It contained large amounts of raw onions, olives and banana peppers … none of which we could eat. Asking our preference ahead would be helpful as we could not determine what was in the salad from the menu. That large of a portion of salad per person is wasting food and we barely ate the two family size salads that we received. For our meals we had tortellini with traditional bolognese sauce that had an off taste to it. The other meal was Pesto Penne and we did not see any pesto. Rather it was covered in Alfredo sauce. our waiter was very busy but still served us in a timely manner, was very pleasant and made small talk with us. He seemed to really enjoy his job. Not sure we would come back based on the food alone.
