Always a good meal, and exceptional service. It's a but over-priced, but for a convenient meal in the city, that doesn't stop us.

The food was mediocre at best. Price points were high for the caliber of the food. Service wasn’t very attentive. The restaurant was empty and it still took forever to get drinks.

Waitstaff had to come back 2 times and inform us that menu items were out. Waitstaff forgot twice our drink orders. They apologized for confusions and indicated it was the volume of guests. Food was good when it did arrive but portion size for cost was small

Arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation & we were seated right away. Leisurely meal where the main server could have been a little more attentive. An entree had to be sent back due to a server/kitchen mistake (allergy), unfortunately the rest of the table were halfway through their dinner by the time the plate arrived. The establishment was very busy as it was pre-show & they are in close proximity to The Paramount. All food was fantastic & we would definitely return to give them another shot.

The table we were seated at was very strange. We were seated right behind the ordering station with no view and got bumped into frequently even though I made reservations.

We had dinner at Il Fornaio before an early evening movie at the theatre upstairs. It worked perfectly for us. We had great service, ( a friendly, attentive server and his supports), a delicious meal ( we each had pasta dishes and shared a salad. ( fresh ingredients, well prepared), and had enough time to eat in a leisurely way and get to the movie with time to spare. No complaints.

New Year's Eve. Wasn't particularly busy that late, but our server was clearly tired. Took long to take our order and then told us the two meals we asked for were out, requiring another look at the menu and another long wait. Took nearly a half hour to collect our check. Not worth it.

A party of 7 were seated a half hour after the three of us and left a half hour before.

The restaurant is pretty and the Food was average-good (based on the dish) although I don't think it was worth the high price. All in all our table of 6 would have been relatively happy if the service wasn't so bad and slow. Our waitress had next to no conversation with us, would not return to our table for very long periods of time and then got our order wrong. Would like to caveat that it was NYE.. BUT... the restaurant was not that busy at all to justify the lack of service.

Service was great, the food however wasn't good, at all. My husband had the spaghetti and I got the grilled salmon. The grilled salmon tasted like it was from the frozen isle at Trader Joe's, the spaghetti was bland. Won't be back.
