Insalata's Ratings and Reviews
We went on Valentine's Day and they only had a special 3-course menu. I got the mushroom soup and it was so yummy that I wanted to lick the bowl. For entree I got the short ribs with polenta. It was a bit dry and could have used a little gravy with it. I loved the red velvet profiteroles for dessert. It was very unusual but so delicious. My husband got the beet salad, salmon, and lemon tart which he really enjoyed. We've been here several times and have always been very happy with the food.
Excellent appetizer and entree but dessert was a major disappointment
Valentine’s Day is all about dessert. Warm chocolate, decadent mouthwatering tortes and they were nowhere to be found
dry over baked profiteroles and a watery lemon tart simply do not do justice to a perfect duck breast entree
Sorry but the pastry did not meet expectations and certainly did not provide the quality one would expect at this price point
Not a perfect ending to an otherwise outstanding experience
We love Insalata and dine there at least once a month. The food and service are always exceptional and the warm atmosphere and delicious smells make each visit special. Our company has holiday dinners there and lunch meetings. I can always count on the experience - exceptional and very, very special.
Decided to try Brunch since we have only had dinner. We loved the specialty drinks but were thought they were pretty expensive $12-13.
My entree of Grilled Lamb Tenderloin on Flatbread was skimpy on the 2 lamb kabobs and
mostly lettuce. Was disappointed with this choice but others had the Smoked Pork Loin Eggs Benedict, Corned Beef Hash and Middle Eastern Inspired Vegetarian Platter which they said were great!!
Dessert of Ginger Apple Cake and Sorbets were equally delicious.
Always delicious and fresh preparation...courteous and professional service. The menu is not huge but the variety offers something for everyone. Creative seasonings and ingredient combinations abound. The room is not too loud so you can enjoy the company as well as the meal. We dine here every month or two and are never disappointed. Feel so lucky this place is in our valley!
Our favorite go-to restaurant with a great take-out counter also. Consistently good, healthful food, great staff. The only reason I didn't give the food 5 stars this time is that my lamb shank, though the taste was good, was dry. Its accoutrements however were delicious and the friends I bring here from time to time mentioned that the food at Insalata's is consistently very good. They are foodies so that's a compliment!
Excellent meal ~ duck, special mozzarella/citrus appetizer was wonderful! We also had steak, which was quite good. Wines by the glass are a bit expensive ~ $19 for a Chardonnay, but pours were good. Takeout options are always good, especially the yogurt-marinated chicken. Very nice waitress too!
Group of 6 on busy night, seated at worst table despite request via phone conversation and confirmation to sit mezzanine which is more comfortable and better acoustics. Food is consistently excellent. Service can be spotty and was extremely slow on this night, but food was saved as brought out hot by kitchen staff. Great menu and always delicious. It seemed to have been understaffed on our night.
the best food around...one of our favorites...the food is creative and seasonally changes depending on what is available in the produce section or farmers market. Lets say you want Salmon... they usually always have it, but the preparation will vary...and is always thoughtful and delicious!
