Overall good...put in rez notes that we were celebrating a bday which the host acknowledged...don’t think it was relayed to the server though so had to call out to him to ensure we could get a candle in dessert ...all 4 of us ordered cappuccino and all 4 were cold :( asked for hot coffee to add to it to warm up but they were out...the food was good, Caesar didn’t really have any dressing on it but was able to get more and it was yummy...entree portions were very generous .

My first time here but definitely not my last. Service was top notch, 1/2 price wine on Tuesday/Thursday, and everyone in our group of 4 loved their entree and the appetizers we ordered. Save room for the Bananas Foster. You'll thank me.

Too many tables occupied - marginal social distancing. The owner/bartender was also trying to wait tables (including ours) - and resulted in long wait times between service. Food was good - but certainly not great.

We apologies for the slow service. We continue to be short staffed. We expect to back to full staff on Monday 1/11. All the closures have impacted to our ability to quickly rehire. A couple of small parties overstayed their time allotment. The owner requested they depart when we were coming close to our capacity limit. Very uncomfortable new norm as they felt we were rude in asking them to leave. No fair to you or anyone else.

The food was disappointing. Two of us ordered the Sea Bass, and it was "fishy". We sent one of them back. The Salmon was just ok. We have had some really great meals here, but this night was bad.
We had to flag down our server several times, understandably, because it was very crowded (even in Corona Virus times), but it made our dinner not very enjoyable.
They seemed to be overwhelmed this time.
we will go back, because we have had some nice dinners here, but we will use caution!!

Not adhering to covid-19 restrictions . . . restaurant appeared to operating at full capacity, many tables of 6+ people all crammed together. Food so-so. wouldn't go back.

We are sorry you were disappointed. We did have a 9 top and a 7 top. We are allowed to accept parties up to 10. Tables are required to be 6 ft edge to edge. Every table was spaced appropriately. I could understand how this may have appeared crammed but it was within the guidelines. The guidelines changed from 10ft to 6ft with the move to level Orange. We apologized again. Thank you for giving us a try.

My review is primarily poor for the service- our waiter was brusque-not friendly at all!
Food was ok. Our first course: the mussels were tiny and the sauce watery and we weren't given a dish to discard the shells..
The main course was ok. The highlight of our meal was the complimentary garlic knots-delicious!

Pino greeted us and explained that we would be seated in the tent outdoors, which was not at all acceptable to the wives, but he promised it would be warmer than inside, and it was! The ambience in the parking lot does not compare with the restaurant, but the food and service made up for it and we look forward to coming back and dining indoors in the future.

Thank you Tim for being so accommodating. Hopefully the restrictions will loosen up and I will have more flexibility with special requests. It was great meeting you and your wife. Thank you for coming from such a distance. Cheers to a better 2021.
