We have lived in the Hollywood area for over 30 years and have always talked about going there for dinner but never did. Finally we decided to go and I'm glad we did. The food was great and the portions were gigantic. We ate that night and leftovers all weekend. The night we were there they had a gentleman playing the violin and it was very nice. My wife loved it and it earned me a lot of brownie points. We will definitely be going back soon.

décor was minimalistic/cheap-looking, food quality was just fine, prices were too high for the quality of food, most wait staff did not look professional enough depending on who you had, music that night was better than average to great, to me it seems like an attempt to look like a fine dining restaurant with the prices to go with it but a minimal investment to pull it off

I made a reservation through opentable but I don't think the hostess even looked at it, which is ok because the restaurant was not busy at that time.
The garlic bread was ok, nothing spectacular, the macaroni and cheese lobster was ok as well, we didn't get the lobster crackers to crack the lobster at the beginning so while we were waiting for it, the food was getting cold. The stuffed lobster was ok too, nothing special about it.
Nothing bad to say about the restaurant, maybe it was the choices we got.

Mama Mia’s was a nice find for us while staying in Hollywood Fl
Our pastas dinners we chose were delicious and to top the night off, Alex Fox was the entertainment for the evening, and he was terrific
We enjoyed ourselves

Très bel accueil. Avions une réservation,la table n’était pas nettoyer. Les pâtes et les sauces n étaient pas à leur meilleur. Manquait de goût. L’entrée au calmar, c était seulement de la friture et nous cherchions le calmar. Donc payer trop cher pour la mauvaise qualité d’un repas. Nous devons donner une 2ème chance pour une prochaine fois mais pas cette année.

We do an adventure night once a month. Drove 45 minutes to get to Hollywood. Went to glass blowing factory and then Mama Mia. It did not meet our expectations at all. Very nice hostess but went down hill after that

as a long time customer, 4 of us were looking forward to a nice dinner at the restaurant. it was anything but that. The noise level from the piped in music was horribly loud. We asked them to turn it down and they did not. Service was barely adequate. Will not go there again. Sent an email to the restaurant the day after and had no response.

Friendly greeting at restaurant along with clean looking décor. Great menu along with friendly service. Food we ordered tasted excellent along with reasonable prices. All in all this is a great local restaurant and well worth the money. Don't miss out on this place!!

Enjoyed the dinner special. We all enjoyed the appetizers and entrees. The service was excellent and very friendly. Our reservation was honored on time and the hostesses were absolutely accommodating. All in all, it wwas a very pleasant for the four of us. And enjoyed it again the next night with the leftovers.

We have eaten here many times and have enjoyed the food but the last two times we have been it did not meet our expectations. The lobster was good but all of the other food with the exception of the chopped salad was poor or unremarkable. We are disappointed and hope to see Improvement in the food and the service.

Customer service is amazing here, we were with a group of 8 including two chkdren, were from out of town and came for the all you can eat lobster. The staff were so amazingly accommodating, and so nice. It was surprising because every place we went prior had such horriBle customer service. This place really stood out: food was amazing, it was clean and had a very positive and nice atmosphere!

Would defiantly go back again!

We went for Sunday brunch buffet which included sushi and Italian dishes. The sushi side was disappointing as only a few rolls were available and there was not a lot of choice or variety. The Italian side was better but some dishes were not refilled on a timely basis such as smoked salmon or lobster tortellini. The fried shrimp was good so we went back for it a few times.. The restaurant was not very busy so the server was very attentive and we felt well taken care. We ordered bottomless mimosas and the waiter opened a new bottle of sparkling wine for us and served them at our table which was great. Even though the overall experience was ok I do not plan to go back any time soon and will try other brunch options even if more expensive. Our bill came to $80 including tip.

last time we were there the service was poor. The food came late and my dish was wrong. the manager was very nice about it and gave us some comps.
This last time the service was very good and the food came out right. It was very good and based on our last experience I will be back soon.
