    Food was alright, but not great and there was a lot of it. Enjoyed the quaint ambiance - we had a semi-private upstairs room.

    SO GOOD! The portions were huge for the cost, the bread to start was delicious. Everything was fantastic- I highly recommend making a reservation because this place gets packed! Will definitely be back again soon.

    Overall thought the food was poor, overcooked calamari and the meat was tough. Even the salad was drowned in herbs and dressing. Service also seemed really disorganised.

    We made a reservation and arrive about 10 minutes before our reservation time. We ended up having to wait over half an hour to get seated anyway. Hostess was not friendly at all and kind of look bothered by the customers checking in. It was cold so we asked if we could be seated inside they said they had reservations for inside and could not accommodate. This was weird because I too had made a reservation and no where did specify indoor or outdoor. We were hungry so we just made the best of it. The server was nice but seemed overwhelmed. It took a long time to receive our food which normally would have been okay but it was freezing outside my toes were ice cold and face was freezing. Small things like more bread, refills were missed. I like this place they have great food, but the service is truly lacking.

    Delicious food. Was seated near door so the breeze was cold. It’s a tight space in some areas but it’s a nice atmosphere and we liked our server.

    I cannot stress enough how horrible our experience was here last night. I’ve gone before and never have been impressed by the food and genuinely confused by the good reviews, but decided to give it one more shot. I ordered the shrimp Palermo and my partner got the manicotti with meatballs. The Palermo came out as plain noodles on top of a centimeter of tomato/lemon juice water. I asked our waiter about it and he claimed that’s how it should be… I gave it a taste and the shrimp was undercooked and inedible. My partner claimed his manicotti tasted like a frozen Costco meal. Ironically we saw Costco containers in the kitchen soon after. We simply asked for the check so we could leave the food and go until we heard an altercation in the kitchen. The cooks started screaming curse words and fighting with one another, threatening to beat each other up. It escalated to the point of us running out and no other workers seemed to even bat an eye or try to interfere. To his credit, our server was extremely kind and lovely and we still left a decent tip for him. But the food and weirdness of the evening was honestly appalling.

    We had to wait 20 minutes beyond our reservation time for a table, our waitress was inattentive and forgetful, the arancini, table bread, clam linguini were okay. The lobster ravioli was delicious. The vibe of the restaurant was cozy, but very loud during the busy dinner hours. I'd like to give it another try before I write it off forever.

    Wine list and liquor list is pretty weak. Food is 7/10. Atmosphere is super quaint and feels the decades old family run vibe it is. Service staff was nice but inexperienced. Pretty Good everyday dining place not a special occasion place.

    Bustling little place that has a small but mighty menu. Our server was great, the seafood platter was the perfect amount of food to share, and the bread was amazing. The seafood is the chef's selection and the brothy shellfish was tasty, if not my husband's favorite. Asparagus and potatoes on the other side of the plate were perfect. A phenomenal dessert selection was passed on in favor of a wonderful chocolate martini.

    This was not our first meal at Odyssey ~ the food is beyond compare and the staff are amazing! This IS the first time we were seated upstairs which we found concerning. The stairs are very steep and it seems there is only one point of exit which is concerning when you're seating above the kitchen.

    The food was very good! Atmosphere was different. Our waiter complained that he had to go all the way downstairs to get our drinks so he suggested we all order our drinks at the same time so he didn’t have to go up and down the stairs too many times.

    This use to be our favorite restaurant. The food was outstanding and the service amazing. This visit was very poor service and food was not what we had experienced in past visits. We found out the owner and his son sold the business in Feb of 2022 which explained a lot. This is NOT the same restaurant many people have experienced in the past and is now only a fair experience and not worth our 40 minute drive to experience.

    We’ve been here twice now. Once for a date night and this time the whole family to celebrate a birthday. Odyssey is delicious and friendly with great service and unique ambiance. The staff is always fantastic, but this time they were particularly kind and attentive to our kids, which we notice since some restaurants act put-out when we bring our children. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you love delicious food and want a fantastic dining experience!
