Love it and we’ll be back
We were seated on the porch and it was very, very cold. We kept our coats and hats on and it was still cold. A family was seated next to us but asked to move into the main room. When we left entering the main dining area walking toward the lobby we felt at least a ten degree temperature difference. Yes we were the first 4:00 seating, so maybe overnite the porch got cold……..but by 5:15 it was no warmer, We will be back as your food is great, service wonderful and location in the woods romantic, but will ask to be in the main dining room, maybe even by the fireplace! You need HVAC help!
I can not write enough great comments. The filet was cooked to perfection and delicious. The restaurant itself and decor with the fireplace were sublime. We also went for a walk on Lake Michigan. The onion soup etc etc etc. everything was fabulous. Service was also very attentive, respectful and fun!
The place was packed, and even with reservations still a little wait but worth it, as the food was excellent. Very good job bringing the big city feel to NWI, especially in trying times we live in now where you can't find employees, supplies are hit or miss, ect. Thank you for a great night out, definitely will be back again.
Besides everything being outstanding, our server Kelli was EXCEPTIONAL! We can't wait to go back!
What an evening with the snow falling and the welcome embrace from Farina family and staff!
Our waitress was excellent. She was very attentive but no intrusive. A great New Years Eve experience.
New Year’s Eve dinner.
Everything was great. Service, Food and the total dining experience.
Very nice. Great food, service and wine
Great food. Large portions.
I had the BEST Eggplant parmigiana I've ever eaten. My husband had a pasta dish with sausage that he loved. Waiter was extremely attentive and everything was great. Ambience a definite plus, although tables are placed extremely close together. We had to get up and push our table away from the table behind us so that customer could pull out her chair and be seated. Otherwise, lovely decorations for the Winter season!
Awesome great owner place is a plus 9 because their are no 10 per John madden
It was outstanding as always. We love this place.
We arrived early and promptly seated, our server William was friendly and helpful answering questions. We ordered our appetizer, when it arrived he said he would put In our order. That order took about 45 minutes to arrive. William stopped by to say it would be out in a few minutes a couple of times. It didn't happen, I finally approached him in the dinning room and asked him to check on the order. Other tables received their order before ours. He came back to the table and said the manager would be coming over to talk to us. Finally her arrived with our order, to only give us a short and abrupt apology. After I questioned as to why it too this long he stated they were backed up in the kitchen do to carry outs. Strange, other tables were served while we waited for our dinners.
As usual- everything was wonderful!!!
Excellent food, service & atmosphere!
Wonderful! Great food. Friendly, efficient service.
Beautiful room and warm ambiance.
We will come again and often.
Generous food portions.
Small menu choices which varies based upon availability.
We found food very tasty.
Restaurant was not busy, yet it appeared the waiter was a bit frazzled.
Will visit again!
Wonderful food. Entree portions large enough to split between two people.
Try to have them seat you stead out if not busy. They had all the customers crammed together in a small area. We asked to seated in the front porch which was completely empty.
The dinning areas were very nice but tables were quite close. Cocktails were Chicago priced, a manhattan for $16, common. Service was attentive and timing between appetizers and entrees was satisfactory. Fried calamari was indeed quite good but the Arancini were very overcooked and not tasty at all. Four of us dining and two of the 4 entrees were very salty. Linguini and clams had only about 10 clams and very heavily salted and peppered. Other two entrees ok but not up to par with so many other Italian restaurants. Would not travel very far for this restaurant.
This was a wedding anniversary dinner, made clear in the reservation. Was first seated at a two top next to a service station by the entrance. Asked to be moved and was accommodated. Twenty minutes later, our server, Lido, appeared. Asked if we were ready to order! Told him no, were there any specials not on the menu. He read the specials card without looking up but left out the salmon and the sea bass that another server told a nearby table about.
Ordered a bottle of wine. Fifteen minutes later, the wine appwared. Ordered our meal. Appetizers came out after another 15 minutes. We’d now been there close to an hour with no one checking in on us. Felt abandoned.
Appetizer cleared and a half hour wait ensued for our entrees, the special pasta and chicken milanese. Nothing out of the ordinary. They tasted okay, but they may have been sitting under a heat lamp for too long. No one stopped by to ask if everything was okay. At that point we just wanted to get out of there. Other nearby diners seemed to have the attention of their servers, but not us….
Finally flagged down our server for the check. Two hours after we sat down, we left.
Running into another server on the way out, I asked if the kitchen was in the weeds. He said no, not that he was aware. Asked what we ordered (nothing unusual) and asked when we sat down. Told him two hours ago. He said, “wow, I’m sorry.”
We had heard raves about the restaurant but they really need to tune up their service timing. Yikes!!
My pasta dish was very good. A little spiced up, which I liked.
Bobby is amazing. His suggestions are exceptional.
A great place to escape to and have a great meal -
Beautiful setting, friendly, helpful staff. Meals generous & delicious. Looking forward to enjoying this experience again soon.
Our meals were delicious! Service was great! Will definetely go again!!
Great place, beautiful view, excellent food and service!
Met a lot of nice people while dining and in the bar.
First visit and we loved it. Bar was excellent as was all food choices from appetiWrs through dessert. Bravo!
Wonderfully delicious food and drink. Went out of My comfort zone and ordered the swordfish and I could not have been happier.
Farinas is a hidden gem! The atmosphere is cozy chic and the food and service is outstanding!! A place where the owners make their rounds and are all hands on in making your dining experience one to remember!! We love this place!!!
Outstanding service and the food was wonderful. I highly recommend Farina's, best in the area.
Our new favorite spot. Amazing food, drinks, and service. Cozy but great for either date night or family dinner.
Excellent food with great service in a beautiful setting.
Food was great as always! Bobby was a bit brusque and we felt a little rushed by him.
Everything about this restaurant is special and I just wish I can get reservations more often. Best lasagna, terrific wine selection, impeccable and personable service and who doesn’t love Sinatra tunes during dinner.
Wonderful spot, great service, Kelly was wonderful, and was well-supported, she was very knowledgeable about the menu, and the food was tremendous. We will definitely be back
Outstanding as always. Excellent cuisine and service.
We had a fabulous meal. Farina's offers a great menu with diverse choices and presents them in huge portions. Everyone at our table of 5 was thrilled with their dinner and took home enough for a second meal. The waiter - Michael - was attentive, professional and pleasant. The room was cozy and warm - well lighted - not too bright or dark. I will go back there again in a heartbeat and will recommend it to others,
Quality of food is excellent. Service, Michael , was excellent. I didn’t expect the service to be better than pre-pandemic but It was. We had a wonderful experience with our family. Thank you !
