We were very disappointed had not been to the new location but had enjoyed or meals at the old location. Service was great but my entree was cold and my wife’s was mushy we both had pasta dishes. Very disappointing and for the money spent we will not go back.

It was our first time at any of Richard’s establishments, and we were very impressed with every aspect. Our waitress Shaina was a delight.

The prices are a great deal for how nice the experience feels. They are always really sweet and give great service. Our waitress accidentally left us to decide on dessert for ten minutes, and she comped our dessert. That was so sweet and unnecessary. We’ll definitely be back.

Food and service were good, but the bench style table seating was a real disappointment, especially at their price point. Don't choose this place for a special occasion unless you want to have an intimate conversation with the folks seated at the table 18 inches away from you.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Sunday Brunch. This was our 1st visit. It was a very comfortable and romantic atmosphere. The hostess was engaging and wished my wife a happy birthday. Our server was great; very friendly and attentive. My "Breakfast Carbonara" was divine with a wonderfully creamy sauce, a true comfort food choice. I also enjoyed the bottomless Mimosa. The only minor disappointment was that my wife's breakfast pastries were a little dry. We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed a lingering conversation. This reminded us of our great experiences at Chef Richard Langston's former Café Vicino. The food and selections are great and the atmosphere is even better.

Overall a very good experience except my husband and I (a two top) sat between two six tops. Really? And of course both were filled. Why put a two top there??? Loud needless to say....

Food issues: butternut squash soup WAY too spicey.....never mentioned by waitress. Risotto was pure mushrooms.....!!! I have never had a risotto so full of mushrooms. I took most out.

Delicious food and great tasting cocktails. The menu has something for everyone. White tablecloths at dinner help create an elegant ambiance.

I want to love this place. I'm a dedicated fan of Cafe Vicino and know what Richard can do. But, I found the food at Richard's very mediocre on two separate occasions. Pastas were rather bland while execution on other dishes were not up to Cafe Vicino standards. You can do better!
