    Service was slow. Forgot my salad. Didn’t order a second alcoholic beverage because by the time the waitress came back around to ask I was about finished with my entree. We had kids in our group. Their entrees were served almost 10 minutes after the adults. Kids food should always be a priority especially when it’s chicken fingers and fries. Overall a descent restaurant for the area.

    We had a small dinner for four at the Ovalon after our wedding ceremony. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The waitress even gave us complimentary glasses of champagne and thanked us for choosing them as a place to celebrate after our special day. We will definitely return and likely will enjoy some anniversary dinners there as well.

    I had steak and crabcake the steak was fabulous. Oh, and I had onion soup, which was also wonderful the salad wonderful the bread wonderful I wasn’t real fond of the breading on the crabcake. I personally thought it was going to be broiled and it was OK. the french fries weren’t that great they were greasy my husband‘s crab casserole was fabulous. The drinks were very good and the service was good.

    Lee Ann provided excellent service. The shrimp cocktail was a 12. As were the calamari. Ravioli and red sauce were delicious but the veal was a little chewy.

    There was 11 of us- reservation was at 6:15PM - dinner came about 8 - steaks not cooked enough and cold. 2 waited about 20 more minutes for dinner. If it wasn’t for Karen & the waitress staff I’m not sure I’d waste my time with a group.

    While traveling, Hazelton was our overnight stop for one night. We looked for a nice restaurant and Ovalon seemed perfect. Street parking wasn’t easy to find. It was a bit more casual than we expected, but we were seated near the bar which had a very friendly neighborhood vibe. It wasn’t crowded on a Tuesday night. The heirloom carrots were an interesting and enjoyable starter. Chicken piccata and filet mignon were good, solid choices, but not outstanding. We skipped dessert.

    I am a longtime customer - as in decades - and I have to say that after many many many meals there, this one was truly the most disappointing relatively speaking. Nothing was flat out terrible. Nonetheless there was a lot of confusion about who was going to take our order and in fact, I had to ask a bus person to send the waitress over to do just that. Once we worked out the issue of who our server was, she was wonderful. I ordered a special which came with a side of pasta The pasta was wrong, and when it was corrected and came back to me, my meal was literally sitting on a bed of plain pasta. No sauce no butter nothing. The rest of my meal tasted great. But balanced out over a tangle of completely unadorned pasta negated whatever flavor the rest of the meal had. My husband is a fan of linguine with clams, and is somewhat of a connoisseur as a result. It’s always a go to meal for him at the Ovalon, and he has never been disappointed until yesterday. The sauce was watery and without flavor. We’ve experienced this at their sister restaurant the Powerhouse and we really don’t go there anymore as a result. I would also like to comment on the “remodel“: I’m not sure what they were going for, but some areas of the dining room just felt like black holes. Maybe they need more lights. The paint scheme is good. I think they’re going for a cozy vibe, but it just didn’t feel that way.

    Reservations were honored on time. Chicken Parm was overcooked. Crab cakes falling apart, heavy on the mashed potato filler. Side salad an extra $3. Carrots as veggie shows no class. This restaurant has seen a decrease in quality over the last few months.
