Our server was pretty inattentive however he was training someone who had quite a good personality and was energetic. Doesn’t make sense having the guy with no personality doing the training.

Loved the ambiance, and the staff were extremely courteous and also helped me with the food choices. We were pleasantly surprised when we got a complimentary dessert, since they knew it was m wife’s birthday! And yes, great tasting food!!!

We arrived early and were seated promptly. Our wait staff were exceptional. They provided a gluten free menu and were very knowledgeable about it. My only caution is it is loud because of the high ceilings. Otherwise it was a wonderful experience!!

Customer service was awful I’ve never felt such negative service in a restaurant the friendlyness level of the staff was just so low they looked at if they’ll rather be elsewhere. Food was good but unfortunately I will not be going back nor will I recommend this place to anyone I know.

The food was fantastic as was the service. The noise from kitchen was, at times, very bothersome (ask for a table by the windows to avoid the noise). Though we had a very nice time and will return, I feel that the prices were a little too high.

Hostess seemed very pushed out of shape for some reason
Even though we had a reservation. She seated us in the worst location and wouldn’t let us move to outside patio even though only 2 tables were occupied. Waitress later on did tell us the patio was open and we should have been able to sit out there. Maybe just a bad night for the hostess but ruined our night!

We arrived for a 5:30 dinner reservation. By 6:55 dinner had still not arrived. The sauce on the veal was congealed from sitting on the counter a while before being delivered. The waiter seemed very rushed; perhaps they were short of help that evening. We have been here many times before and this night was not up to par. For the prices charged, it was not a great dinner out.

Made reservation early for 5:00pm since it was my mother's 86th birthday. My wife arrived 5 minutes early and was seated at our table. As I arrived with my mother, there was clearly a shift change as the hostess was storing her purse at the hostess station. My wife waved to us so, not having been greeted by the hostess yet, we proceeded to our table. A minimum of 20 minutes past (perhaps more) and not a single staff had come to our table. Tables next to us were being seated and waited on, but no one came to our table. Finally, my wife went to the hostess station and while there someone took pity on us and greeted us. Apparently there had been someone assigned to our table and were present, but never made it our way.

For my main meal I had a seafood pasta from the specials menu. Quality of pasta was good (definitely fresh), but the dish was flavorless. The complimentary dessert for my mother, however, was outstanding - classic Italian! Thankfully Italian wines by the glass are available, but could be more adventurous.

The service was very good. The teamwork was seamless and very well orchestrated.
Our proximity to the front door made the temperature vary quite a bit when it was held open. Uncomfortably so at times.

Food was very good although the seasoning on the steak was a little heavy handed, but not unbearable.

This is one of our all time favorite places to dine. It has always rated 5 star in our book. This time was a bit disappointing in that my filet was cold and my husbands chicken was a little dry. No worries... we'll be back.

Spent $350 on dinner for four and the service was slow and food was cold. Had to ask for olive oil refill and never filled my glass of water. Zabaglione was runny and unattractive with sparse berries and sorbet. This chain seems to be going down hill. Not to mention I glanced up at a server talking to another server and proceeded to grab one of the large wine bottle decorations by the neck and hold it like a baseball bat goofing around right behind my friend. (Was a Male employee with a large head full of dreadlocks).

Food was great as usual. Service was not what we expected at such a restaurant. We have eaten here before with good service. Service during most recent visit was disappointing. We waited over 10 minutes for our dessert which was just ice cream. The table next to us received the wrong appetizer twice. Perhaps the restaurant was short staffed for a Saturday night.

This was our first time visiting an Il Fornaio location. Unfortunately, it will also be our last. We found the hostess to be quite snooty and the service so-so. We started out ordering a bottle of wine in the bar area since we were not allowed to check in before our reservation time. We asked if our bar order could be sent to our table once we were seated and told yes. Evidently, that meant we could carry our own stuff ourselves. When our table was ready, even though the hostess knew we were in the bar area, she did not inform us that we could be seated. And no, it was not busy. No one else was even waiting. While the food was delicious, there was hardly any of it. The portions were tiny and no soup or salad with the meal. Not a good value at all.
