Everything was good, the only downside was their strict seating timelines. We unfortunately were still eating dessert when our server rushed us with the check. I understand the policy but just an overall letdown when we’re still actively eating vs just sitting and chatting.

I didn’t like the fact that the restaurant automatically added a 20% gratuity on a 2 person ticket. I’m a patron that always tips at least 20% but I don’t like it when it’s added to the bill. A tip is something you base off of your quality of service. Probably won’t be back because if this.

Our waiter was awesome. I don’t remember his name but he was super sweet and energetic. He was super into giving recommendations although the dish I got wasn’t what I fully imagined but that’s okay everything was really good. Vibe was great in there and it wasn’t hard to get a reservation despite it being super busy.

Like all restaurants these days, they were short servers. But somehow we were able to get served, fed a delicious meal, desert and cappuccinos. Patience these days is needed. And if you have it, you will be rewarded. We sat outside and it was fun to see people on the streets. Definitely recommend.

Clubby music didn't fit the vibe, our host was annoyed we weren't drinking alcohol, despite ordering lots of apps and entrees for everyone. Food was fine, but the apps were small and basic given the price and just overall a little underwhelmed.

Appetizer and cocktail were fine. But entrees came out overcooked and cold. And then they placed a 20% tip on the bill for a party of two. When we spoke to the host he reacted defensively instead of inquiringly.

We waited 15 minutes to get a waiters attention. And then our drinks didn’t even come until right before our entree was served. Think they are short staffed. The club like music doesn’t match the ambience.

After visiting Extra Virgin several times I brought my parents here, who were visiting from out of town, for a great meal. Such a disappointment. Terrible service, the host was extremely rude when seating us, and then gave severe attitude when they didn't have the wine we ordered. They were out of two different wines we ordered, and this was a Saturday night. And the food was awful. The pasta was cold and watery. The salmon was freezing cold and completely raw, the tuna was inedible. Overall it was just a very disappointing experience, which was really a shame. Probably won't be returning, which is a shame since I used to frequent the restaurant.

Extra Virgin was a perfect place for our group of eight diners. Our server, Madison, was amazing — anticipating our needs, helping out when one of our party was delayed, and generally helping to make the evening a blast for us all.

Had a very nice experience at Extra Virgin. I appreciated the host checking us in asked to see our vaccination card as well as ID. Service was excellent. Food was very good. I would recommend Extra Virgin as a very good local restaurant and will go back.

Food is mediocre. Messy looking frittata with no sides. Most of the Garcia omelette was left. Cold and flavorless with a side of cold French fries. Guess you’re paying for the location and ambience so you can get away with presenting subpar food.

We had the most disrespectful and rude waiter I’ve ever had. It took him 15 minutes to come to our table after we sat down. When he came, we asked a question on what we were going to order and he got annoyed, tapped his pen and pad, and said I need to know what you are going to order now. Again, this was the first thing he said to us after sitting at the table with no service for 20 mins (didn’t even get water or anything at this point). It was such an unnecessarily rude interaction that we left. Maybe it was just one bad waiter…who knows but I’ll never go here again

Very disappointed with this place. The food was very ordinary for the price that you pay. Didn’t meet our expectations at all. We didn’t even finish our dinner and they told us to leave because they had 90 minutes dinner policy! On top of them being rude and inconsiderate they automatically added 20% tip to our bill without letting us know about it. Overall the place is not worth it.

My daughter entered the restaurant to check in and the host rolled his eyes at her (for coming in??). Not sure why having vaccine cards checked has to be met with such attitude. Saw this at many restaurants over the weekend but Extra Virgin seemed extra annoyed with us.There we’re very few parties as we were early for brunch.

I had the hue is rancheros and they were served cold. I couldn’t get past it as the eggs were a little runny and it just made it taste like cold mush. Really not good. I wouldn’t think of asking out server to reheat as she clearly was hoping to do the minimal with us. I ordered a coffee and it came in a small (cute) stainless steel mug and I was never offered a refill or warm up. Don’t serve brunch if you have to pay for a basic coffee refill.

Extremely underwhelming experience here. There was no value and we couldn’t leave fast enough.

Good food and a nice pour of very good wine. The seating was cramped and not too pleasant especially outside. Inside the darn music is way too loud. I never eat inside for that reason. Real loud and obnoxious music.

Seated right away despite one person being late. Drinks were very good.
Ordered Tuna Tartar & Spicy Tacos as Starters. Both excellent. Thursday Special (7 hr. Braised BBQ Lamb Shank was was outstanding. Meat falling off bone tender.
Unfortunately the Pan Roasted Striped Bass was N/A so, the Lemon Crusted Chilean Sea Bass was ordered. Other Entrees were Grilled Atlantic Salmon & Hanger Steak.
All said their meal was great. Had a great time. Extra Virgin's website indicates that tables are cleared after 90 minutes, but we were not rushed and stayed until we were ready to go. Maybe with indoor and outdoor available their is not the urgency to turn the tables as quickly. Our dining experience was outside and was fantastic and luckily we had a beautiful night. Would definitely come back and recommend.
