We have always loved Renee’s. The food is fresh, well prepared and delicious. During the panda, they did a wonderful job with take out only. We love their pizzas, lasagnes, and toasted sandwiches. We are so happy to be able to dine in again, in their beautiful redesign and private booths. We will go again often

Very disappointed with food… thick pizza dough… tasteless and very expensive! Had much higher expectations after reading other reviews. Service was exceptional! You could tell they felt bad about the pizza they served…

Responded on June 15, 2021

Hello Renee, it was lovely to take care of you. I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy the pizza. I always feel badly when someone doesn't enjoy what they have ordered. I will try to use this feedback moving forward and ask the guest if they prefer thin crust rather than our traditional dough, which is more bready. Our first week opened back up for dining with over a year of a closed dining room, getting my groove back. Thank you for giving us a try. I appreciate you. Renee

I've been a loyal customer for years, always enjoyed the fresh ingredients, lots of cheese, great food.
I'm not sure what happened last night, but the "Everything" pizza was just terrible. I thought it might be the crust, not sure. I mentioned it to the server, but she claimed it was the same. Maybe it was overcooked.
Very, very disappointing.
Hopefully next time will be better....

Edward thank you for being here for years with us,and for letting me know.Nothing with the crust has changed,but I do know sometimes something happens and we are very sorry you it made for a poor experience.That is the day I messaged my whole team to inform them of major shifts covid19 about to occur and it may result in closing. Although I had a plan they may have all been a little distracted learning we had to close dine in operations and prepare for to go only as it is coming down the line.

Had dinner tonight. Not pleased with many aspects but waited until I got home to call back. I had no desire to make a scene on the premesis. I had the displeasure of speaking directly with Renee. Went to dinner with an elderly friend who is handicapped. When she asked the server to help her tableside put her leftovers in a to go container the waitreee said, “I am not allowed to do so.” Renee was very defensive and snippy with me when I took the time to call. She also told me that she didn’t like my tone and hung up on me. I called back to assure her that I was trying make this a positive and productive experience for all. Her first response was, “It didn’t sound that way.” I explained that I was trying to be forthright and heard over a noisy crowd. Funny, I didn’t fault her for her tone. My recommendation was that the servers explain to a customer the reason for not assisting, the coronavirus. This makes sense but a simple explanation would be comforting to a handicapped patron. Renee did offer a full refund which was NOT the point of the call and I refused her offer. Please, in difficult times we cannot assume anything. We can wear gloves if we are truly concerned about health issues and there are many other precautions that can be taken. How about gloves when serving my food when it’s brought out from the kitchen? How about gloves when taking away my dirty plate and utensils? This is unfortunate as at no time did Renee take a civil tone with me. Sorry Renee, being kind and understanding is a much better approach.

Responded on March 12, 2020

Thank you for letting people on here know how we are taking this seriously in their best interest. As the response from everyone else has been overwhelmingly grateful. I did start out by saying in an actually sad tone response “oh no, this is a new policy and we are trying really hard to make sure we keep you all safe “ To which you responded with Your sentiment “that if people have it we all at our restaurant are subjected to it anyway so just deal with it and wear gloves “was so inappropriate.

My recent experience was fantastic! My parents and I were fortunate enough to have Renee as our waitress. She was a dynamic, impressive woman who made us feel very welcome. The food was phenomenal. My mom and I both have celiac disease, and Renee’s had great options for us. We had the Caprese Board with GF bread, and it was great! The Caesar Salad was unique and delicious as well. Our entrees were amazing, too, with fresh ingredients and tasty flavors! The overall experience was first-class and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. As someone with celiac, It is special to go to a restaurant and be able to have a majority of the food on the menu.

I drove by this place a bunch of times never knowing it was there until seeing it on Triple D. It’s tucked away in a strip mall. We were not disappointed, food was fresh and delicious. Portions were very generous and the service was impeccable. We had a reservation during an off time and the place was packed, a true sign of a great restaurant. Keep up the good work!

One of the party is gluten free and Renee explained options and limitations. Food was excellent,service, provided at different times by a young gentleman, a young woman and Renee herself was all outstanding.

This is an adorable little restaurant in a non-descript building. The staff were very knowledgeable and attentive. Our food was delivered quickly. I ordered the penne pesto, which was surprisingly pesto-y. Very fresh pesto with a lot of basil - no cream added at all, just pesto. They forgot the feta on mine, but maybe that's because I ordered it with no kalamata olives. The leftovers made a great cold pasta salad the next day.
