Food was delicious. We booked for outside but the weather did not permit. We sat inside and it was extremely noisy. At times, I could not hear my husband talk from across the table. We ate at la Fava previously and ate outside, and it was a great experience.

This was our first time visiting La Fava and everything was AWESOME! Our Waitress, Maria, was very service oriented which made our experience even better. We will most certainly pass the word around about LaFava! Prices were reasonable and like a smaller menu rather and feel that less is more! Keep up the good work!

Fava is clearly making the best of the Pandemic Requirements imposed on all restaurants these days and is dong so with good humor and creativity. We had a delightful dinner "al fresco" on a beautiful June night. Most notable was the enthusiastic and energetic service of Caitlin, our server. (Only her 4th night, but a real gem. If Fava is as smart as I think they are they'll do whatever is necessary to keep her.)

The second commendation is for the chef, who cheerfully agreed to do another version of veal than the one listed on the evening's menu. And it was delicious.

We enjoyed everything — food was excellent and the service was great. The only thing we didn’t enjoy was the loud music which seemed to be a sixties Muzak remix. It didn’t fit with the ambience of the restaurant. It seemed better suited to a hotel happy hour for seniors. That said we will definitely be going back again.

La Fava Restaurant and Bar is the real deal. Execution that sparkles from host, to bar, to wait, to kitchen teams. Just back from a long week at the shore and wanted to go out on a high note … we split the arugula fried goat cheese salad with fresh spring strawberries, the always decadent mussels red, clams white with crusty chewy Italian dipping bread to mop up the sauce and split the Sunday Special house made lasagna - absolutely way better than my own.

We were seated at the bar area because we wanted to watch the Belmont Stakes horse race. Once the race was over we ordered our meals. My wife ordered the de-boned Game Hen and I ordered the Stuffed Pork Chop. The "De-boned" Game Hen was a boned chicken leg & thigh and my Pork Chop was a little dry but both were very tasty!
The waiter Leonard was very good & had been working all day since breakfast and out reservation was at 7pm.
We enjoyed the time there and would return if ever in the area again.

The set up in the parking lot is lovely ( there were about 30 tables or more) and it was a beautiful evening. Our young server was very sweet and attentive and everything we had was delicious . The fried calamari dish was the most tender we have ever had( and we’ve eaten a lot of calamari!!!) we will be back— just wish it was a bit closer to us!

The food was great! And our server, I forget his name, was awesome! He was always there with another mimosa when ours were empty. We were a little late for our reservation but the host insured us that it wasn’t a problem and we were able to switch to our door seating since it was a gorgeous day. Very nice staff and very good food. And the bottomless mimosas were worth it!

First, let me compliment La Fava on creating a beautiful dining area in their parking lot. The potted and hanging plants, strings of lights and nice quality table and chairs all added to a lovely atmosphere. I’d say they could do it every summer, post Covid, and draw a good crowd. Our server Zoe was on top of it all; mentioned all the specials, checked on us frequently, welcoming and friendly. Meatball appetizer, good sauce — not acidic like some places. My husband had the seafood stew, said it was excellent and ate every bite. My poached pear salad was also wonderful — not too much dressing, beautifully presented, large portion. Side of perfectly prepared salmon was also a nice portion. Finally, table side banana foster — what a nice ending to a lovely meal. We will certainly return soon.

Fantastic as always! Food was absolutely amazing, cooked to perfection and tasted incredible. The service was second to none! Our waitress, Maria treated my wife and I like we were the only 2 people in the restaurant. There is absolutely no question as to whether we will be back! La Fava is fast becoming one of our favorite restaurants to go to for a special occasion or just a casual evening out.

First time and really enjoy it. Brunch was delicious. The only issue I had was refills on beverages.. I need to start asking if it’s free refills because I was charged for each glass of soda (which was not worth $2.00 each).

We arrived and were seated promptly at an outdoor table. They have created a very pleasant ambiance outside with plants, umbrellas and comfortable chairs. The service was prompt, our server was highly competent and attentive. The food was excellent as always. I had the Raine wedge (large enough to share). Hubby had little neck clams. For entrees he had Dover sole filleted at the table and I had lobster raviolis. Excellent!

First visit based on 4 star+ reviews. Because of same had high expectations and perhaps was disappointed because of the less than exceptional experience.

Service: was spotty. Took about two minutes to bring appetizer. Then waited 30 minutes for dinner. Dessert (gelato) took 15 minutes to serve though our server did thank us for our patience. While we we’re waiting for dessert a gentleman who appeared to be an owner chatted with the next table, obviously friends but oblivious that our table was empty and we had to be waiting for something. Didn’t raise a look from him. When dinner was served, Server placed pasta dishes on table with his thumbs inside rim of the bowls.

Food: my wife enjoyed the Jerusalem artichoke though I thought it was ordinary. Her 4 cheese pasta with smoked duck was very good and a go to dish for a future visit. I had the bison pappardelle that was tasty though a little tart. The gelato was very good. Few slices of bread served were stale; the fava bean spread was good.

Noise: near middle of meal, noise level increased to noisy as the restaurant filled though we were able to hear each other.

We made a reservation for 7:30 and then checked in with the hostess. We were told that we would have to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated due to wait staff shortage but we would receive a text when a seat was available. We were never sent a text. I understand there is a wait staff shortage but then you should limit the amount of reservations and tables being served. We will likely not try it again in the future.
