    To be fair, our server didn’t know he had our table until we asked 2 diff waiters 4 service. (After waiting at least 10 minutes). We had no happy hour menu or water but we’re served bread w no comments from a diff server. Our server said he had only worked there 1 week. Can’t remember his name but he was very attentive to r needs once he realized we were his customers.

    Food was okay/good but not fabulous. The mussels appetizer came in a nice spicy marinara-esque broth, but the mussels themselves were chewy and overcooked. My mushroom manicotti was okay but the "pesto sauce" seemed more like an alfredo and had very little flavoring. Service was good enough -- good at first but then the waiter didn't come back to check on us till my husband was almost done eating. (Not a huge deal but we had wanted to ask for crushed red pepper, another cocktail, and extra bread -- -which we got, but it was rather late in the game). For the price overall I don't think it was quite worth it and I'm more interested in trying other nice Italian spots around town than returning.

    Juliet Italian Kitchen - ArboretumResponded on July 25, 2022Katherine, we appreciate you taking the time to leave this review along with your candid feedback. Your comments are well-received, as we are always looking for ways to execute better on our service and food. They have been shared with our entire team, in order to make the necessary improvements.

    We came with our two children and we were immediately sat in the ‘annex’ area. The restaurant looked so cute inside, but it was like looking in from afar. Huge disappointment; felt like we weren’t even there. The food was great though.

We appreciate you bringing the family in to Juliet, and hope you will give us another chance in the future!

    I wasn’t terribly impressed considering the number of good Italian restaurants in the area. The food was fine but nothing great. The restaurant is well decorated but the tables are just in a row so there really is no ambiance. Unfortunately, the food just isn’t good enough to get me to return.

    All the fish in the seafood scampi was overcooked. The mushroom pasta was just grocery store baby Bellas/(crimini). And that room is incredibly loud, even on a half empty Thursday. It isn't terribly expensive, but it's also not much better than an olive garden.

    Front of house is great, we had a reservation and were seated immediately. The focaccia is amazing, I could make a meal of that alone. Entrées were well portioned however I found the spicy rigatoni quite underwhelming. Food delivery was well timed but we seemed to have lost our server towards the end of the meal even though the lunch crowd was slowing down. Definitely recommend.

    Angel hair pasta with shrimp was over salted (our party had two of these and both had noticeably too much salt). Otherwise food was quite good. Loved the warm chickpeas they brought as free appetizer. Noise is high, to the point where in party of 6 it was hard to hear one end of the table from the other

    Juliet Italian Kitchen - ArboretumResponded on June 20, 2022Alex, thanks for taking the time to share this review along with your kind feedback. Adding the right amount of salt to a dish - particularly a pasta dish - is a delicate measure, and it sounds like we may have overdone it here.

    Made reservations online, confirmed for indoor seating. Arrived at restaurant and was taken outside to be seated on the patio in 92 degree weather. Was told that only other option was a table inside that we could only have for an hour. After being in the lobby trying to decide where else we could go - the host came up and said we could have a table in the bar (this was 15 minute past our reservation). Once seated we had a good server but the food was bland and pasta sauce was watery.
