    Food and service was good but we had a 8:45 reservation and they were closing the restaurant at 9:30 so it felt a little rushed.

    The one person we were “wining and dining”, and was the reason for the lunch, didn’t get their food until after everyone else had finished eating their meals. It took that long. Was kind of a bummer.

    Lunetta was lovely. The cafe was loud when full. Food was very good - great variety. Our service was spotty- started great then became very inattentive. I’d give it another try tho.

    All products were unseasoned, items where missing from my order. Beverage was missing ingredients. Unfortunately my experience wasn't a good one. Love the ambience but that was it.

    Lunetta is dependably good, week in and week out, whether for breakfast lunch or dinner, and also for special meals and menus, such as Thanksgiving. Staff is friendly and solicitous. It is a gem of a neighborhood restaurant!

    They put us in the third annex- I had asked to be outside, but felt like I was in a parking lot, not a restaurant patio. Service was excellent, both pleasant and attentive— very hot with no breeze . The potato chips were very good. Other guests entrees were good, but my lemon ricotta pancakes ( which I ordered based on someone’s review) were terrible. They didn’t taste at all from lemon, they were very heavy- not like other ricotta pancakes I have made myself or ordered elsewhere. The blueberry butter was weird- as if it were made with margarine- again with very little or no blueberry flavor- the maple syrup was good though. There was literally one almond crushed on top and very little powdered sugar- totally disappointing. Would order something else if I ever returned.

    I love this restaurant! Excellent quality, lovely setting, delicious food, and the best cocktails! Some of my favorite menu items are: for brunch the Memela and the eggs Benedict w Bloody Mary or apple ginger mimosas, for lunch I love the salmon sandwich or any of their salads w/ salmon, for golden hour you have to try the salmon collar- it’s addictive! And for dinner I’ve tried all the pastas, the gnocchi w crab, the Loup de Mer, the pork chop and ALL OF IT was amazing!!!

    Menu selection just fine. Service was outstanding. Had an amazing cabernet. Again, this seems like one of the few lucky restaurants with trained, professional wait staff. I almost forgot I was sitting in a parking lot. Love the simplicity of the table, and coordiated plates and napkins. Got a fork that was recycled from a high school cafeteria I couldn't use. Don't mind paying 30% more with such great service.

    We sat in the little patio behind the inside dining area. It was a pleasant setting. Because Lunetta is in my neighborhood we walked over but the huge free parking lot it shares with Rite Aid is a nice convenience for those who drive. The service was nice. But as always, and I eat here fairly often, the food was good enough but not outstanding.

    Our server wasn’t really good. We had to ask for things repeatedly because she kept forgetting. She brought us an empty jar of salt when asked for one. When asked for another one she ignored us. The fries tasted like it was fried in fish oil or oil that they used to fry fish in. It wasn’t the best experience and the food was okay.

    Unimpressed with both the lunch and brunch menu. Not enough brunch staples to intrigue me. I had to ask for seasonings, place settings and our server never asked if we wanted our water glasses refilled...which we did as that was the only drink we wanted.
