Our server Lorenzo, could not be more attentive and pleasant! We haven’t been in a while and we’re pleasantly surprised by a slight menu change! Food was better then ever! Keep up the good work Guy! Good job 👍🏼

We went to dinner here on 3/9/19 as a prelude to an evening out to see a comedy show. Having been here for a buffet, we thought we'd try it as a date night. Well, I don't know if they were having an off night or if it's like that all the time, but the service was really slow and the food was mediocre at best. After sitting for about 35 minutes without the appetizers coming out, we had to let the waitress know we needed to leave in an hour. Our apps came out about 10 minutes later. We ate those and then we waited again, this time for salads. After they took the salads away, we had about a half hour to get our entrees and leave. After waiting another 10 minutes, we reminded the waitress that we had to leave. It took an additional 10 minutes from that point for the entrees to make their appearance and they were just good, nothing spectacular and definitely not worth what we paid for them. After eating part of the meal, we asked for the checks. Another fiasco. Took almost 10-15 minutes to pay to get out of there. We made it to our show with only 5 minutes to spare; we were the last people to arrive. We won't be going back.

Food was average for an expensive restaurant. Order was delayed and confused several times and drinks were watered down. 3 hour meal with my 82 year old father. The steaks were very good as was the cheesecake, THATS IT!

We had a lovely evening at Lombardi's. The place and the view of the bay is beautiful! The valet employees were friendly. The food was very good and plentiful. Our waiter, Lorenzo, was welcoming, friendly, thorough and professional. He made the night there so enjoyable and tended to our every need. I am looking forward to going back and especially look forward to nice weather when we can eat outside on the patio.

Food was great and the special lunch menu was also fabulous. As always the service was impeccable. My only complaint would be that when I booked on Open Table I requested a table NOT near the windows on the bay. I am highly sensitive to sunlight and so needed to wear my sunglasses for the entire meal. I understand I could have reminded people but did not want to embarrass my fellow diners. I expected that information to be read and followed when I booked. Not a big deal, but just wished that the request had been read.

Should have listened to all the prior reviews. The sauce was watery and only okay. The steak was practically raw when I asked for med rare. Normally could just tolerate eating it but it was even too rare to eat. The sever was very nice but it was clear the kitchen had crashed when our appetizer which consisted of three slices of tomato and 3 slices of cheese took 30 min. The service was overall EXTREMELY slow. It was just me and my wife we arrived at 6:45 for dinner and didn’t leave until after 9. We wont be back to try again.

We went here for valentines day and were very disappointed. The place looks very nice on inside and out, but the service and food were below par for what I would expect out of a restaurant with these prices. I got the porterhouse which was good but my girlfriend got the lemon chicken which the best way to explain it, tasted like tap water. We ended up returning it. And after all of this the time it took to ask for the bill and pay for it it took 25 minutes.

Went there for our 5 Year Wedding Anniversary last night Valentines Day. Made Reservations for 8pm on Open Table a month in advance. Walked in last night, table not ready we had a drink at the bar. 1/2 hour goes by nobody comes up to us table is ready. Went to the hostess stand to remind them and she goes heres your name, Totally Clueless! Poor Communication to the customer. We ordered baked clams for Appetizer and I ordered Surf and Turf special which came with a Salad, Strip Steak, and a Lobster Tail for $72.00. Clams came out they were the size of a nickel and only came 4 to an order. Steak and Lobster come. Asked for Medium Rare, it was cooked to my liking but it took 20 Minutes to cut one piece of meat with a sharp large steak knife that was provided. It was like eating Shoe Leather. Felt like the Cook went down the meat aisle at the local Supermarket and picked out this cheap steak. No waiter came over to ask how everything was. I ate the Lobster Tail which was tasty. At the end of the meal the waiter finally came over and asked how everything was I said the Steak was Terrible.... took 20 minutes to cut and got a workout from doing it. The Manager came over and said will take the Steak off the Bill. They should have comped my entire entree. What a way to spend your 5 Year Wedding Anniversary with a Bad Meal.

The ambiance of the restaurant was beautiful but the Valentine’s Day 4 course meal was mostly tasteless. The stuffed shrimp lacked flavor and the mash potatoes were lumpy and also lacked flavor. The best part of the meal was the salad. Service was excellent. However it was not worth 150 dollars

The service staff was very inexperienced. Had to ask for things 3 times before they were received. Ordered Porterhouse for 2, med rare , and they came out well done.
When the replacement steak was brought out the rest of the party was almost done with their meals and the new steak was obviously rushed to cook because it came our raw in the middle and well done on the outer edges. For the amount of money we spent on dinner, something should have been done or offered for all the mistakes and poor level of service.

Have been to Lombardis OTB many times. The last two have not been so great. Chicken parm was not hot when it arrived. And really wasn't too flavorful. Pretty disappointing actually. Apps were ok but shrimp was a little overcooked. The waiter brought the wrong beer to my husband. Not really a big deal as he drank it. Then we both asked for balsamic dressing for our salads. Waiter brought us both house dressing. We went on Saturday night and it wasn't super packed yet our wait times between courses was too long. The dining room is all windows and such must be hard to heat but it was freezing in there too. So no I wouldn't recommend based on our last two experiences.

We didn’t expect a DJ (a little Loud) and to sit right next to the bar - a bit odd as it is a large place - would’ve been nice if we were given an option - and no specials ( well -they were posted on a board and saw them on our way out)

We had gotten a gift card from my daughter to use, and first I must say the food was excellent! Our biggest complaint was the service. It took a long time to be served, then the wrong dinner was placed on our table, and my dinner was wrong. Three minutes later she came back and took both our meals. My wife had flounder, and they took our dinners to another table! I didn't touch the food, but I still wouldn't want to have someone else's dinner!
We did enjoy the food, everything was great, the portions, and taste A+ I do think the prices are a little high. $10.00 for a small glass of wine is a bit much. Thank you.

My first time at this particular Lombardi’s venue. Food was extremely substandard to what I typically get at the original place in HOLBROOK. Chicken cutlet parm was tasteless, sauce was runny and flat tasting, my flank steak was tasteful enough but wS absolutely inedible due to its toughness. I sent it back and I NEVER do that. They didn’t take it off the bill but gave us all cheesecake or cannolis for dessert. The cheesecake tasted like the refrigerator. Never again...

Fuimos a Lombardi’s por su ubicación somos turistas y queríamos ver el paisaje y comer algo delicioso italiano.
El lugar es hermoso, afuero y por dentro pero la decepción llegó cuando trajeron la comida. DEMASIADA COMIDA, SIN SABOR, solo pedimos 2 platos (1 para mi y otro para mi esposo), la comida estaba sin sabor, la porción era para 4 personas y no se veía apetitosa. Se veía de cafetería de paso de Highway.

De verdad deben mejorar el sabor, las porciones y la presentación. El precio es elevado me imagino por la cantidad de comida. Pero si la comida es buena no importa el precio.

Ojalá puedan tomar en cuenta este comentario porque el lugar es muy bonito. Y es una pena no poder volver, ni recomendarlo.

Tuvimos que pedirle a Jen, la joven muy amable que pusiera to para llevar porque nos daba mucha pena después del servicio tan amable que nos dió dejarle los platos alli sin haber comido. Al llegar a nuestro hotel lamentablemente lo desechamos.

Lamentamos no haber podido tomar fotos de los platos. Pero ustedes saben como son sus platos, este comentario no solo es de parte de nosotros, los 3 comensales al lado de nosotros escuchábamos los mismos comentarios.

AT first we were seated on the patio area where there is a bar and a view. We asked to be switched to inside since it was noisy and the atmosphere wasn't as inviting. They were very accommodating and inside was lovely and relaxing. We enjoyed excellent service and a fine meal.
