    Food and service were excellent. I asked for an adjustment to be made to my entree and was accommodated with no hesitation. My only suggestion would be to hang fabrics or something to deaden the noise in the dining room. It is very loud. Did not take away from our enjoyment, but you did have to speak up to be heard. The live piano music was a big plus. Happy we could hear it. I would definitely eat here again.

    The menu looks better than the food. Overpriced and underwhelmed. Better food/drinks/value can be found w/in proximity to this restaurant. Was told after-the fact Fava is 'hit or miss'. Place was not crowded. Our dining experience, on a Thurs night, was a 'miss'.

    Fava Ristorante ItalianoResponded on June 9, 2022Jon, we are so sorry that your visit did not live up to your expectations. We value all feedback, good and bad, and value your input. We do hope that you'll visit us again soon.

    We enjoyed our meal very much. All dishes were delicious. The service was extremely good. Although we enjoyed the live piano player, it was a little loud for us trying to have a conversation. We were sitting pretty close to the piano player so maybe the loudness level was better elsewhere. Besides that all 7 of us enjoyed our dinner very much and I would definitely go back!

    Mother day brunch. Buffer was empty and not refilled quickly. Service staff was busy trying their best but some things missed. Food was good but not much from buffet. Each time prime rib was gone. Pasta was good. Good food but with buffet not worth the high price.

    We went for Mothers Day brunch. The food was good but not up to their usual standards. I’ve dined here many times before and the food is always exceptional so I chalk it up to it being a busy Mothers Day. The only complaint I have is that we purchased the bottomless mimosa and Bellini option and were cut off an hour after we sat down because they started turning over for the dinner buffet. That was very disappointing as we were not made aware of the time limit and didn’t feel we got our moneys worth for the additional charge. Otherwise, the staff is always very attentive and it’s always a bonus when you have a pianist accompanying your brunch!

    Fava Ristorante ItalianoResponded on May 9, 2022Thank you for your feedback, and thank you for joining us for Mother's Day! We will certainly keep your observations regarding bottomless beverages in mind to better serve our guests in the future. We are always striving for excellence and are sorry to hear that you were disappointed. Thank you for your kind words about our staff, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you again!

    We went there for Mother’s Day brunch and decided to sit outside. They had some food items set for customers sitting outside. But the curving station and desserts were inside. I wanted to go to inside to look at the items they have, but there were lots of people checking in during that time so our server was kind enough to bring prime rib and assortments of desserts for us. We paid $49 PP for adults and $35 (I think lol) for kids, another $20 for unlimited mimosa for me. That food was MEH! I heard great things about their food, but that buffet was not $49 worth. Desserts were good. Our server was nice. Will i go back? Not anytime soon. If I go back, it will definitely not be for brunch.

    Fava Ristorante ItalianoResponded on May 9, 2022Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, your feedback helps us to better serve our patrons in the future. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your desserts and service, but disappointed that the rest of your time with us left you displeased. Please contact the restaurant directly so we can make this right.

    The food was excellent - truly excellent. The service and communication left much to be desired. We arrived for our reservation and were seated outdoors. I was not aware that we would be outdoors until the night before. I called the restaurant and spoke with Matthew who said there was not much that could be done. It was a pleasant phone call. We arrived to the outdoor seating on Sunday morning to find that a table of 8, which was loud and rude were able to use their shocking abrasiveness to secure an indoor seat. This was disappointing. Additionally, our party of 6 was seated at a table meant for 4. My knees never ached so much at a restaurant. The food for the Mother's Day buffet was not fully out when we arrived and was missing serving utensils. Finally, we waited for FORTY FIVE minutes between asking for our check and actually signing the bill. We spent almost as much time waiting to pay as we did eating. It was a disappointing dining experience and it felt like the restaurant was not prepared.

    We took my mom here for Mother’s Day and it was fantastic! The food was delicious and the waitstaff was friendly. The salmon / faroe dish and the chicken parm were especially outstanding and we also ordered bananas foster which is made table side and served over yummy gelato. There was a piano player there that eve which added to the noise level but was a really nice touch. (Yes he takes requests too) We will definitely go back again!

    Dinner was excellent. We both started with the Mushroom Soup which was out of this world. I had the Faroe Island Salmon and my husband had the Veal Saltimbocca Romano which both were outstanding... Jennifer, our waitress, was warm, friendly and very attentive. This hidden restaurant is super and make sure you stop by when in the area. You won't be sorry. They can't do enough to make you feel comfortable and no request is too much.
