My friend and I had a delicious lunch. We both had the Oyster BLT. The golden fried oysters were excellent, topped with apple wood bacon, baby spinach, tomatoes, red onion with a blue cheese dressing & Thai chili glaze. Every bit was delicious. The waiter was very efficient and made sure we had drinks to go home with. Looking forward to another visit for the liver and onions. No matter what you choose you all enjoy 😉

Good variety of choices on the menu. Enjoyed the Oyster BLT sandwich, which came out quickly, along with our other selections for the 4-top

The food was delicious and service was great. Social distancing was observed and servers wore masks. It was a quiet dining experience. I did find their menu to be small/limited compared to what I'm used to. Also, we went at night, and though other businesses were closed, we were concerned about being towed. There are signs everywhere in the shared lot.

The food and the service were absolutely stellar! What I do have to say is absolutely no fault of the restaurant’s. There was a large party in our room and they were extremely loud. This made it a bit of a challenge to slow down and enjoy our dinner as we just wanted to finish quickly so we could leave. Again I know this is not any fault of the restaurant.

The service and the food was very good. A very consistent restaurant in both respects. Their Coolinary Menu offered 4 courses and excellent selections. Bottled wine prices are good and a good selection of low to medium prices.

I think I aged 30 years dining with all senior citizens that night. The food, for Italian, pretty bad. Upscale intentions, missed the mark. I ordered the eggplant parm. It was doused with cheese and sauce, baked until mush. Not sure what I was eating. Reminds me of fazolis fast food italian restaurants. Service was okay. Donna was nice and all. I’m puzzled how this got 4.5 stars. I won’t be back.

We had reservations for 7:30. Didn’t get seated until 8:00. Felt very rushed throughout meal. Won’t be back. When I make a reservation I expect to be seated at that time.

This was our first visit, as we try to use Coolinary time to try new restaurants. It was a 4 course meal for $39, so I cannot very well complain, but I am not sure I will be back either. The food was good, for the most part. The sauces were interesting, not bad, but I am not sure I would have them again. The Crustard with Roma tomato, basil, and goat cheese was for me the star of the evening, though the caramel pecan cheese cake was a close second. The Caesar salad was decent, but not really memorable. Both my wife and I thought our entrees would have been better with a different sauce. Service was great, and ambiance was nicely serviceable.

We have always loved the food at Peppermill. We attended for COOLInary as the selected menu was diverse and sounded delicious. The food was not bad, but it was not as good as we've had in the past.

Met some friends here for supper; I come by fairly often for lunch, as it is near the office. I have always had great food here, and a tremendous value. Everyone here is friendly and attentive.

The waiter was rude and cocky. We wanted a nice dining experience and we felt rushed to eat our meal. The appetizer came out and 5 minutes later so did our meal. There really was no time to eat and enjoy our meal. We were in and out of the restaurant in 40 minutes.

The Peppermill never disappoints and this time they were ABOVE and BEYOND with all the appropriate safety measures in place, following all guidelines! The service, the menu, the food and especially the staff were phenomenal! I can’t say enough about this place! Please go visit and keep them busy!!!

Went to Riccobono for the first time and tried their special Coolinary menu, a taste feast. Shared portions with a friend so I was able to sample a wide variety of dishes, including: artichoke casserole, Roma tomatoes and feta cheese with crustads, pork osso bucco, veal medallions with mini crabcake, Pecan Sundae and pecan cheesecake, all of which was delicious. The restaurant practiced generous social distancing and offered great service in a delightfully warm but modern setting. My only disappointment was that the Caesar salad dressing was not made with anchovies and they had no anchovies on hand that I could add to my own salad. Other than that, the perfect dining experience. Kudos!
