It was honestly really cute and we got to listen to a really good guitarist. Great atmosphere and the salmon really slapped. 10/10

Food was subpar at best, nothing tasted bad but nothing was memorable and all of the food was lukewarm if not cool. Our server was not very attentive and did not seem to understand basic serving etiquette. We waited for drinks, our bottle of wine didn’t arrive until we were nearly finished with our entrees.

Was amazing. Went here for our first date seven years ago, loved it then. Love it now. Attention to detail and the environment was just absolutely perfect for a really special day. The layout is so unique and makes for really comfortable but special dining experience, and the food! Wow, the food. So tasty. The artichoke dip is to die for. They are on top of COVID stuff too, this was the first restaurant we had been to in months and felt completely safe and like everybody was aware and on top of it. Many thanks to this place.

Food was great, liked the endless mimosa's but the service was horrible. I had asked for a cup of coffee and another mimosa she came back 7 minutes later with mimosa and I never received any more service from her for the next 70 minutes . I HAD ASKED HER NAME to begin and received no answer, then I hollered for her waved to her tried calling for her with no response finally went up to the host stand and asked for some coffee after waiting over 20 minutes and he went to get it for me.

To start, I’m not sure what good making a reservation online did since they were seating people ahead of us who didn’t have one. Everyone there was very pleasant and helpful, but the quality of the food didn’t align with the cost, and please stop using syrup with artificial sweeteners. And in consideration of COVID, covering the food might be a good idea.

This was one of the best brunch buffets I have ever had! Very good choices: bacon, sausage, French toast, waffles, fruit, grain/oats, salmon, salad. It was so good! Do not sleep on Loring!!

The Chicken Piccata was absolutely fantastic, would highly, highly recommend. Perfect for a date night, the restaurant is eclectic and fascinating and just sweats cozy. The open air design and kitchen is wonderful and the live music is a pleasant addition to our delicious meal. Drink menu very good as well. I also recommend the French onion soup.

My niece just moved to the U and we decided to have dinner at the Loring Pasta Bar. We dined indoors and felt safe and comfortable. Indoor fans and table spacing made things almost seem normal. I’d highly recommend it and we will be returning soon!

We didn’t realize they were doing a brunch buffet until we got there. The food was cold and not good, especially the sausage. I appreciate they were doing their best in

Such a great date spot !! The atmosphere is great, especially when the guitar player is on stage. It was relaxing and something you don’t see very often.
The service was slow and our server had the dirtiest mask I’ve ever seen. The food was good but with problems. My carbonara pasta was undercooked and clumpy, the mashed potatoes on my fiancé’s plate were old and barely warm. The custard on the Creme brûlée was cold. But even with all these problems, it is a place that we would go back to. The atmosphere made up for any shortcomings of the food and service.

Great experience at the Loring! The restaurant space is very large, and there was plenty of room for social distancing. We loved our meal! I recommend the seafood linguine, eggplant parm, and chicken picatta. Also, the artichoke dip is so good, there's no question why it's the Loring's signature dish. Highly recommend the Loring for a fun & easy night out!

It was empty. The food was only a breakfast buffet even at 1:00 pm. The food looked old and tasted the same. When asked about lunch I was told “it’s this or nothing”. I decided to give it a try well I was disappointed. Oh well always another time
