                                                            The food is wonderful. The salad was perfectly dressed and the pears were delicious. It’s a bit pricey but very good. We had very good service, only one small hiccup. My Manhattan came without a cherry. They had run out! A small thing but with fine dining details matter

                                                            My wife & I go to Half Moon Bay every 3-4 months. This time we were looking for a new restaurant, and the girl at our hotel desk told us about Fattoria E Mare, which opened up on Main Street just 3 months ago. We checked it out and are so glad we did. The restaurant is beautiful. Our server, Raul, was one of the most attentive & friendly servers we have ever had. To start I ordered the Romaine Salad, which was delicious, and it’s presentation was tremendous . For dinner we both ordered the Bucatini with veal meatballs. The pasta is house made & it was absolutely delicious. For dessert we had the Warm Chocolate Cake, hollowed with chocolate sauce & lavender cream inside. It came with vanilla gelato. Again, tremendous presentation. My wife had ordered a presecco drink and was talking with her hands & accidentally knocked it over, breaking the glass. Raul moved us to another table so they could clean up under it, brought my wife another presecco, was gratuitous about it, and did not charge us for the second drink. If you are ever in Half Moon Bay dinner at Fattoria E Mare is a must. We will definitely return!

                                                            I really hate giving a not so great review when it shows so many like the establishment. I really wanted to like this place…..but it’s ok. As we parked the car across the street, it looked COMPLETELY EMPTY. I was almost hesitant to go inside and was quick to cancel the reservation, but my husband convinced me to give it a try. As we got closer, we did see a few guests, but for a Saturday night…...there were just FOUR tables out of what seemed like 30+? I honestly had never seen such an empty restaurant, especially on a Saturday night. We arrived and the hostess was dressed SUPER casual. Look I don’t want to judge, but if you’re going for a classier vibe, sure didn’t feel like it; the hostess was in tennis shoes and a denim jacket. Mind you this was dinner time, not lunch. The service was excellent, but then again, with four tables, how can it not be? Forgot our waiter’s name but he was very attentive. We got our drinks, apps, entrée and dessert all in a timely manner. Now, the hardest party to critique…..the food. I will say, our app was very good. We got the Seafood Fritto Misto which is basically a little bit of all kinds of fried seafood. It was cooked perfect and had just the prefect balance of flavors. My pasta, which was the Linguini (w/Beef Cheeks neither bad or good. It was also barely warm. Our focaccia was stale and the ratio of olive oil to balsamic vinegar was 90/10. For as much olive oil as they poured, we should’ve had more focaccia but it’s all good. After one bite, we didn’t eat much more. We had an affogato for dessert and usually this is served with mini biscotti. If a full-sized biscotti, there’s either one or one broken in half. Here, they served two larger

                                                            The wait staff didn't know the menu well. There was hardly anyone in the place and they weren't very attentive. On the plus side they left us alone while my friend and I got caught up. Unfortunately, I don't know that I'll go back.

                                                            Nice Italian pasta selection, but a bit pedestrian in flavors and portions smaller than expected. good service, excellent outside location nice part of Main street. fish entrees very expensive, a decent salmon should be 25-30, not 38.00.

                                                            We were between two restaurants and this one won out. We were so glad. It was fabulous! Every dish was unique, beautifully presented, and delicious! The squid appetizer was perhaps the best dish I ha e ever had. My husband’s fettuccine with crab was melt in your mouth goodness. The house Cabernet and Chardonnay were the best. We sat by the window and watched a downpour while we cozily enjoyed our delightful dinner.

                                                            We've been three times now. the first two were meh, slow, inconsistent, and odd service. Chalking that up to start up mode we went the third time. Service and food both excellent. But way too noisy. High cavernous hard surface ceilings with hard surface floors makes for a loud and echoey space.

                                                            Came here for a quiet Monday evening dinner for 4. Everyone enjoyed their meals and cocktails. Service was outstanding from Raul. Recommendations were spot on. Delightful owners of this fairly new addition to Half Moon Bay have made this a go to spot.

                                                            Food was excellent, you might want to the tell customers bread is only available on request. I wish you had Meyers Rum.

                                                            Food wasn’t very good. Lacked sophistication. Burrata was a meh dish, pork chop cooked well but sauce wasn’t good. Octopus appetizer sauce too salty and mushy tomatoes.

                                                            The table was not ready when we arrived, we had to wait 25 min and we were not offered even a complimentary snack, we were 4 adults with 4 starving kids. One of the pork chops was raw in the middle and they brought an incorrect bottle of wine. The octopus was not up to par, a bit rubbery

                                                            A group of us got together for my birthday celebration. The table was waiting for us and a wonderful time was had by all! The sauce on the mussels dish is otherworldly and not to be missed! Highly recommended…

                                                            The food and ambiance was very good. Given covid, I would like to have seen staff wearing a mask. Would be respectful of all patrons. This is true for all businesses now, not just this restaurant. Other than this one issue, we liked it very much.

                                                            Atmosphere is light and spacious- very comfortable. Service and food was excellent and I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for fine dining.

                                                            Reservations were a breeze; the food, cocktails, wine and service were impeccable! I was initially a little disappointed by the addition of a third Italian restaurant on Main Street but my experience at Fattoria E Mare changed that completely. Highly recommended!

                                                            The wait staff was really sweet! We went for an early dinner, but I wish we had gone later because it was a little too bright to be super romantic with all the new windows they put in. Food was delicious and well proportioned!
