Great food and a wide selection to make everyone happy! Cozy and creative space with cool architectural features old and new.
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.
Got married upstairs 5yrs ago. Absolutely love this gem of a restaurant. the ambiance is how I wish most restaurants would be. the food is on point. the service is attentive but casual which is again all part of the ambiance! 5 stars always.
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!!
Love our family dinners at the Loring!! Can't wait for the next time!
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.
Went to brunch for buffet and bottomless mimosa deal. So good.
The dinning room has great character.
The staff was very helpful and attentive.
Food was a nice supprise
The house made pasta was nummy and service was perfectly attentive.
Beautiful restaurant, amazing food & great service. Will definitely be back!!
The Tuesday date night menu is a heck of a deal!
Great! Not that much champagne in the mimosas though.
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!
This place is great, the mimosas were well made with fresh orange juice and the atmosphere was really fun. The price was good too.
Nice evening. Enjoyed the entertainment and the atmosphere
We loved it!!!! Will stop back again when we are in town visiting my daughter at college.
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
Good food, great service, great ambience, and great location
I think they cute down on how much you get with food. Didn't seem like we got a lot but it was hot and good.
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.
The date night experience was amazing along with the food
My salmon dish had no to odd flavors. It just really didn't taste that great Service was excellent and the place was practically empty. Very cool decor and location was perfect.
Amazing as always!!!! The best mussels in the city!
We loved listening to the beautiful music of Pavel Jany while having a light dinner of delicious fresh salad and pizza. Service was first class. We felt very safe and well cared for during our over 2h stay.
I love loring brunch with all my heart
The Loring waited to open up right. Felt extremely safe walking through the dining area. They even check your temperature! We had a lovely dinner on the patio. The food is always exceptional there, no matter what you order. I highly recommend you check it out!!
Staff was really nice and the food was great. The setting is super pretty too
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
Love their brunch buffet, great value for students.
We love it at Loring. Food was excellent along with the service. And, of course, the ambiance is outstanding. We’ll be back.
Visited for the Sunday brunch. Good variety, high quality. Best roast beef on a carving station that I've ever had. Nice dessert choices.
My wife and I went here for dinner on a Friday evening and were quite pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was great with a variety of different types of table settings and elevations and a quite good 4-piece jazz band playing on a small stage at a really reasonable volume. It was possible to enjoy the atmosphere of the place along with the music and at the same time hold an actual conversation without having to shout. Really a big plus these days! And the food turned out to be really good, too! We shared the bourbon mussels as a starter which were fantastic. I then had a medium rare flat iron steak which was cooked perfectly, and my wife had the mushroom penne pasta dish with added pancetta at the recommendation of the waiter and it was really good. We also enjoyed some really good cocktails from off their menu and had a decent glass of their house wine. Altogether a very enjoyable evening at a reasonable price.
We have never had such bland food. Never in my life have I taste plain asparagus with no seasoning, not even salt, until tonight.
We went to McDonald's after because neither of us finished our meals.
Went for my anniversary with my boyfriend and totally loved it!
The Loring Pasta bar interior and menu feel dated. I would like the menu to have more vegan/vegetarian options. It feels like a time capsule.
Very good food and service - we will be back!! Yummy!!
We were all dancers who were there to dance to Cornbread!! It was so much fun, although the dance floor was very limited. I’ll go again though to hear him and his band play.
Service was amazing, loved our waitress
