You need to do something about the noise level during Happy Hour. It went on for too long and was totally abrasive. Why don’t you make use of the bar in the other room and pull the divider door during this time.?

Ordered the braised short rib which was supposed to be served on mushroom risotto. Instead the short rib was served over mashed potatoes.it would be appreciated if patrons were told ahead of time if there were to be any deviations from the menu. I would not have wanted to eat so much mashed potatoes. I did not make a fuss because I did not want to spoil the mood / embarrass my guests since the meal was to be a celebratory meal. My mother ordered the clam linguine and she had to pull out uncooked pasta from her mouth. When we asked for more bread, a comment was made by the server that made us feel very uncomfortable. Can't recall the exact words but it was like he was discouraging us to get a 2nd basket of bread. Then he followed up with "just kidding"
And although this is nothing the restaurant can control, there were a few shady looking men just loitering around outside the restaurant. They were there when we arrived and were still there when we left

First time at this restaurant. Took my fiancé and son for Mother’s Day. Server didn’t bring a ice bucket for our wine, and food took hour to be served. Not much effort on the servers part. Food was descent. Probably won’t go back,

The waiter was nice but not as attentive as we would have liked. They never brought us bread, we had to ask for it. The Ravello salad was delicious. We felt rushed out of there when it got close to 10:00 p.m. They turned all the lights on before 10 and we felt like they wanted us to leave.

Great food, decent drinks, piano bar, nice atmosphere. Fireplace was nice also to sit by.

I was not aware kids were allowed and would have preferred no kids but it's a bar n grill so understandable.

Service was excellent, food was great but a little pricey, which I expected. Parking great unless you go on a weekend, then you hope to get lucky. Overall 4 of 5 stars.

The food is delicious BUT way overpriced. The service was OK. One thing I would recommend is for them to dim the lights. It was way too bright in there for dinner. I would recommend this restaurant to others though as I have eaten both lunch and dinner there.

The restaurant decor is nice, and the food was pretty good, though overpriced. My husband had the giant shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were very large and very good, which they should have been for over $5.00/shrimp. My salmon was OK, but it was a pretty small portion and the potatoes and beans weren't very hot. My husband had a filet, which was fairly good sized and tender, but at $35.00 came with just a grilled tomato, so he ordered a side of portobello mushroom fries. Again this was a small portion for $10.50. We don't mind the cost if the meal is worthy of the price, but were kind of disappointed here.

The restaurant staff should make a note when you tell them you're bringing a birthday guest. The server did take my friend's dessert off my bill after the fact--but she didn't get the birthday surprise I'd hoped for when I called in to remind the staff about the occasion. I find almost all restaurants are dropping the ball on this lately, but it matters. If the staff DOES remember, it makes for a lovely occasion. And that's especially important when you charge special-occasion prices.

The food, however, was marvelous (special occasion-worthy): the beet salad, the scallops, the salmon, the semi-freddo chocolate dessert--all terrific. Good wine too.

We were looking for a quick delicious dinner prior to a gallery opening. Ravello Bar and Grill fit the bill. They were accomodating on splitting a main dish and I loved the half order of salad prior to the main dish. The wait staff was very attentive. A very nice dinner.
