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 !
Great food and service
The food was fabulous. The ambience was perfect for a fall night out.
The food was terrific, and the service was fantastic the overall experience was great. The parking was a bit of a problem, we had to park in a school parking lot approximately a mile away and be picked up and dropped off due to the parking lot being full.
Service was excellent. Food was excellent. Wait time for food was minimal
Our second time to Farinas. Have not been disappointed! What GREAT meatballs, my daughters LOVED the sea bass. Our party of 7 was wonderfully satisfied! Look forward to our next trip! Oh, same waitress as first visit. She has a great personality and did a great job!
Great time as usual! Food is amazing and staff is five star, especially Michael our server!
The food = amazing! Loved the burrata salad, the special ravioli, vodka sauce. The service = fabulous with Jamie and Bobby. Ambience is so beautiful - have you seen the ceiling?
It was crowded and we waited longer than expected for our food but our server was great and the food was wonderful!
Awesome service, food, and atmosphere.
Great atmosphere, food was good, large portions. Need more servers, tables way too close together. Drinks overly priced!
Excellent food and excellent variety of food. Wine choices were good.
The food is awesome, service is great. Very friendly people. Great atmosphere.
We went for our 30th anniversary Had an amazing meal and wonderful server.
Love the atmosphere, waitstaff were delightful . Salad and chicken parmigiana delicious. My husband also had French Onion soup which was one of the best he ever had
The food was delicious! Excellent service. Great experience. We will definitely be back. Hands down the best place to eat in the area.
Waiter who’d had the motorcycle accident was GREAT! Drinks (Manhattan) also great. Nice overall vibe. Love being neighbors with you!!
Food is pretty good, but some of the items such as the grilled calamari are salty beyond belief for some reason, and it's not the first time I had that problem with the calamari. The sea bass here is fantastic.
When you have a good server, this place is amazing. When you don't, then the level of service can get so bad that it distracts from the whole experience. This happened to my group last night. Our waitress was totally inattentive. We were ready to order desserts, but she just plopped the check on the table. Then, she never came to get my credit card. After 20 minutes I brought it up to the hostess table and paid it. I was not happy at that point. Every aspect of the service was extremely slow. She was very friendly, but drinks were not refilled and she didn't pay any attention to us even though there were plenty of servers there for the tables that were filled. It was a Wednesday night.
If you are willing to risk the service, then this place will do you fine. If you get irritated by spending Chicago prices for Michigan City food, then the lack of consistency of the service will bother you.
Great neighborhood spot! Generous pours, delicious food, and great service
Popped in while we passed through but thankfully we made a reso in anticipation. It was packed, I was rather shocked seeing a spot bussin like this in a residential neighborhood by the water in the middle of the mitt. Food was great and vibe was upscale and welcoming. I’d consider stopping by as you’re not gonna get many chances at an experience like this nearby! Shoutout to the staff for replacing the candle at our table when they realized it was date night.
My daughter had four dear friends visiting and we all went to dinner together at Farinas!! We were seated at a lovely table for eight with plenty of room for all of us!! It was a beautiful location in a beautiful restaurant. And everyone’s food was delicious!!!! We can’t wait until we return again!
An excellent experience. I would, however, not recommend the prime rib. It was tough and lacked taste. The rest of the items our part had were excellent and service was fantastic. Overall a wonderful experience.
This food is amazing. The appetizers , and pasta dishes are out of this world.
Had reservations for 7:00 pm and were promptly seated. After 5 minutes we were told they seated us by mistake. We has to go back to the hostess stand and wait for the next table, Waited 15 minutes to finally get seated at 7:30. Waited another 10 minutes to get a waiter and a glass of water.
Service was slow and our dining experience lasted 2.5 hours once we were seated. No parking available. The whole experience was a cluster #**.
It's a wonderful place. But I felt that I was back in 2019. Jam packed and not a mask in sight. No signs about needing to be vaccinated. I guess there's no pandemic! We're vaxed and boosted, so I was less worried. The portions are huge and the food is great. Real comfort food. The staff did a good job despite the mass of people.
Met the owner's and they were very inviting to us as it was our first visit. Will definitely be back.
We are glad we were introduced to this great place. The great food is only surpassed by the wonderful staff. We’re looking forward to our next visit.
The service was great and the portions were enormous!
Some of the best food I've had in Michigan. Our server was excellent. We had a drink in the bar before our reservation. I thought one of the bartenders was rude and unprofessional. Dinner certainly made up for that.
Lovely location! A hidden gem for sure. Everyone on the staff was super friendly and helpful! Looking forward to going back again the next time I’m in the area!
The restaurant was not very busy on the evening of our reservation, yet Service was abysmally slow and “off”. We were forced midway through our dinner to go to the bar and get drinks for ourselves when our server disappeared.
This was really unfortunate, because our food was delicious.
Wonderful experience with exceptional food and drink. Parking lot was small and only gravel so was a bit sloppy after a rain but once you hit the front porch, everything was top notch.
Hard to find not easy to get to and parking lot sucks! But, this is a nice home/mansion style restaurant. Ambience is exceptional IMO. Nothing excessively overpriced food is actually quite decent the bread with marinara they serve is exceptional! Very fine little Italian restaurant and yes I would go back.
Very good food. Especially for the area.
Most entrees were very good; my guest said his prime rib was cold.
Salads got mixed up. Very noisy, making it difficult to converse at our table. Should have kept the carpet to absorb sound! Shuttle to parking was time consuming. We had plans afterward. Would only return during the week when less crowded.
Really good food and drink. Beautiful inn. Warm ambiance. Lido was our server. We’ve never had better service anywhere. He was attentive, funny and thoughtful. Never did we feel rushed. Our party enjoyed a great night out.
Everyone there seemed to enjoy working there. A really refreshing vibe.
Thanks. We’ll be back.
No parking available when I arrived. Offered to shuttle me from a church parking lot a mile away. Seating and ordering went smoothly. But there was a 50 minute wait for the appetizer (a simple fried calamari), with no clear explanation from the server. I ordered it with marinara, but it came with cocktail sauce (the second time this had happened). After the 50 minute wait, appetizer and entree came out together. The place was crowded, noisy, and hot. Food was tasty and for the most part well executed, but this is not a place where solo diners get treated well or can expect a relaxing, well-paced dining experience. (And none of the customer-related covid precautions they list — temperature checks, masks required, limited seating — were in effect.)
My wife has food allergies and gave a prepared card to the server for review by the chef. My wife made her order with specific requirements. She asked the server to write the order but the server replied that it wasn’t necessary. Food was delivered to the table and my wife’s order was prepared incorrectly with butter to which she is allergic. The order had to be prepared from scratch while another guest and I ate our dinners slowly waiting for my wife’s dinner. By the time it came, the other guest and I were finished. My salmon was overcooked and the ambient noise made conversation nearly impossible. All in all a very disappointing evening and nothing discounted from the bill.
