    Food was great but a bit overpriced for pasta. Service was sub-par. We saw the waiter’s assistant more than him, had to ask for the bread way after the appetizer, and waited 20 minutes after we were done eating for him to return so we could ask for the bill. We were in a side-room and felt a bit neglected. Glad we tried it, was a nice evening, but will not be a regular due to the price.

    Servers and management were very helpful and accommodating. Food was fine though some dishes didn’t have a ton of flavor. I also found a rock in my pasta dish and while the restaurant went above and beyond to remedy the situation, that finding put a bit of a cloud over the experience.

    It was my birthday and my husband and I went there for the second time. We had Amanda as a server and she was super knowledgeable about the menu and surprised me with a beautiful tasting mocktail once I expressed I am in recovery. Then she said congratulations which meant the world to me because it is hard. The food was outstanding and the experience was one to remember! And I got a birthday dessert! Thank you for an amazing time!

    Server was very attentive until our food was delivered. She never checked back to ask how our meal was… we had someone else get us fresh pepper. My husband’s mashed potatoes were cold, the pork chop was a bit too charred and yet the inner meat was merely medium very pink and a bit undercooked for pork. My carbonara was not the typical with a cheese/white sauce but a creamy tomato with rubbery pieces of chicken. I will state that the Appetizer of scallops was absolutely delicious, the drinks were fantastic and the charred Romain salad was very good. Unfortunately the service and our entrees were lacking for what Porcinis is known to offer.
