    Pasta House is one of our very favorite restaurants, especially for celebrating special occasions -- most recently our 48th anniversary. It is an elegant, hidden gem among lots of dining choices in the area, most of which are quick-serve, cookie-cutter kinds of places. We were so happy they survived all the shutdowns!

    Worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. We waited 90 minutes for our food which was not all delivered at that time so one in our party came about 10 minutes later. In speaking with the “manager” we asked for some sort of compensation ? Maybe bottle of their Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc which can be purchased at the grocery store for $10. The “ manager” was not sure he could do that. After 20 minutes brought the wine but we had finished our meal. He had was notable to give us the unopened wine to take with us. We left with no compensation for the wait, the inconvenience and the excuses brought to us by the “manager”. The food was undercooked so not even able to say their culinary expertise is in point.

    We've been to Pasta House at least 6 times and have really enjoyed each meal. I'm attempting to try something different each time - but it's hard because I liked the dish that I had the last time so much that I want it again. This time I had The Pasta House seafood pasta dish with shrimp, crab meat and lobster! It was wonderful but so filling that I had to take half of it home (poor me) - it was just as good the next day warmed over! Can't wait for our next trip!

    Had a reservation for 7:45 on Valentine’s Day. Got there around 6:30 to have a few drinks before dinner. NO Bartender and no one got our drinks that we ordered . Being understanding that it was Valentine’s Day, we decided to go to another bar for drinks and come back for our reservation.got back at 7:40 and was told they had to clean a table. Never got seated at all! They told us kitchen was backed up ( understandable) but when it was over 45 min past our reservation, someone got up from the restaurant and said we are leaving… we’ve been waiting 2 hours for our food. My boyfriend and I decided…. Let’s go. I was so disappointed because I heard the food is amazing. We will be going back on a weekday. Never once saw a manager or anything. It was complete chaos. Felt bad for them.

    In fairness to the owner, everything was excellent. Due to a shortage of staff for this big holiday event, Valentine's Day (which I'm sure couldn't be helped due to the times we live in) it was very good. Staff shortage caused an hour and a half wait for our food. However, the owner compensated our entire meal and gave us takeout. It was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant and I will be returning. They had a line out the door which should tell you this location is fabulous! Don't let my comments deter you from going here. It's well worth the dining experience. Oysters and stuffed flounder were cooked to perfection!

    We have been coming here since they opened. Always an awesome and pleasant in the food and the servers. Valentine's Day is a very special time for us and we love the various specials and the food is always delish and the service well you are asked if there is anything else that they can do. Glasses are always full. The desserts are so good that we always take a treat home as we leave. A + all the way

    We are locals and had not dined here in several years. We have always enjoyed their food and did again this visit. The only noticeable change was the service, which was very slow. The restaurant was not busy, but it took about 10 minutes before our waiter (who was very pleasant) came to take our drink order. Then it took about another 10 minutes to receive them. This continued with the remainder of the meal. As we left the restaurant, we noticed a lot of the wait staff huddled around the bar talking and joking. One was eating. Not a great look when service was so slow. This should be an easy fix, given the right direction to staff by the owner about expectations.

    While I had to wait a while (reservations can be useful!), the time passed quickly. When I was seated, I got a booth (YAY!) but the seat cushion was cracked and appeared dated. Whatever concerns I had were quickly alleviated by my server who was informed and eager to please. Questions were answered with patience and certainty. A cocktail for which I had to provide the recipe came out quickly and was perfect. The bread was warm and sliced into big pieces. My appetizer, Oysters Rockefeller, were sublime: this is the first time I got to enjoy huge oysters (PROPERLY prepared) and large pieces of bacon, both smothered in an abundance of creamed spinach. It was a treat. My main dish, Chicken Parmigiana, was interesting in that it wasn’t breaded. Regardless, two huge chicken breasts came out juicy and beautifully prepared. The pasta was OK but the appropriately portioned red sauce pulled it all together. For dessert, the waiter lied: the tiramisu was NOT a personal portion size. But for the fact it was one of the best I’d ever had, I would’ve taken some home with me. Great place, great and friendly staff, and superb food. Very happy I went - cannot wait to go back!
