The food was great, the waiter rarely came to our table and we had to ask for more
water. There were several tables with children and they seemed to be trying to handle
those tables, understandable.

Food good and waiter service good. However front of House were appalling - an extremely uncomfortable “welcome”. Not good to start dinner feeling angry. Restaurant would be best advised to change the hosting staff - who also spent half the evening checking their personal cell phones and talking to a gathering of other staff

Restaurant was featuring a Sardinian menu this week. Food was very good. Service (Tim) was excellent. Higher end wines were not worth the price. Il Fornaio BH is a very good, reliable venue for a night out.

This is a very consistent and dependable restaurant, food-wise. Services can sometimes be spotty. Sunday was one of those days. The waiter would disappear for periods of time. However, that was not really the problem. For dessert, we ordered three for the table and two coffees. The ice cream and one espresso came very quickly, and then we waited, and waited, and waited some more. After about 15 minutes, we asked the manager for our desserts and missing coffee. A few minutes later, the waiter brings the missing desserts, but no coffee (he forgot). After we complained about his poor handling of the situation, he defensively said "I didn't realize we were in a hurry" (this is about 2 hours into our meal....no one was wanting to leave) and ice cream must be brought out when it is ready (ever heard of plating and delivering courses when everything is ready????? Not one apology, not one goodbye. POOR SERVICE AND BAD MANAGEMENT.

The bread and pastries here used to be the best in the city. Since they stopped having a bakery on site, the bread has reached a near bottom in taste and flavor. They should get a better supplier of their bread and pastries.

The monthly regional menu specials are delicious. The pastas are particularly good and they have one of the best rotisserie chickens in town.

Dreadful! Absolutely dreadful! How did this place go so far downhill? Just terrible service, food, attitude and we were given the wrong wine and they wanted to charge us for the much more expensive bottle we had expected. The restaurant was jammed and SO many people were angry and complaining. Ugh! Never again!

We had Easter lunch here. We have been dining here for 30+ years. They were price gouging we are sure, due to the holiday...that said, we'd have not minded that had the food not been so disappointingly and blatantly unappetizing. You name it...cold, soggy, ill prepared and of below mediocre quality.
The end of an era for us ..very sad.

The atmosphere is lively and cheery and I love the buzz I get when I first walk in. My friend and I each had a cocktail that was tasty, and our shared Caesar salad was delicious. My veal scallopinni was perfectly done and the accompanying vegetables were cooked just right. My friend had the ravioli and I also loved it. My dessert of chocolate gelato was outstanding (nice and dark) and my friend 's salted caramel gelato was very sweet, just the way she likes it.
I can't wait to return.

Greeting wasn’t good. Wait area uncomfortable. Seating space very tight. Service just ok and very slow. Aatentuin to table needs way to slow. Food was just ok nothing to come back for. Wasn’t impressed at all. Specially for a bday celebration. Personally would not recommend or come back. Parking nightmare on top of it all.

We made a (7:30pm) dinner reservation for Saturday for four people. My husband & I showed up at 730pm on the dot & were seated right away. It was obviously a very busy night from the look of it but our waiter was very attentive. It has been a very long time since our last visit here but the food was as good as I remembered. We’ll definitely come back here soon. Besides foods & the company I was with, I enjoyed the hustle & bustle of the restaurant ambience. It felt lively without feeling chaotic/out-of-control.

Went for Valentine's date. Enjoyed it. Great service and beautiful resturanr. The food was good. I had the lasagna ($28). It had a tad bit too much meat for my taste though and the pasta was very thin. I rather have more pasta than meat. And my boyfriend ordered the lamb $50! He didn't think it was enough meat. Our favorite part was the dessert which was surprisingly the cheapest thing we orded. $10 and it was the best chocolate cake Ive ever eaten! I would swing by again just to have the cake to go lol. Also, the tables were a bit too close together for our comfort. I hope they change that.

Overall it was an enjoyable dinner with a friend. However, the facility it is showing it's age. It is not up to par with some of the other Il Fornaio's I have eaten at. The food was good for the price and the service was above average.

Il Fornaio is a very old establishment in the restaurant industry, food over all is always good but can be hit or miss some times, the overall service is the worst I have ever encountered in all off my years in dining out and I told the waiter what was on my mind that evening
