    We arrived at the restaurant on time and had to wait 10 minutes to be 19820632 seated. We got sat upstairs at a 2 top table with no silverware, right by a wall, and the server room. I am right handed and my arm kept hitting the wall on top of that outside the server room!!! When the servers came out they would bump my chair or even kick the legs on the chair. WE LEFT!!!! No questions asked why we were leaving after 1 drink and appetizers!!! Never again

    Restaurant Filippo never disappoints. The crab claws in butter, lemon and garlic were such a treat and the pomegranate martini was exactly what was needed. The trout almondine special was overflowing with almonds and the veal marsala was tasty and sweet. A shared tiramisu was our final choice and it was perfect. Our servers were knowledgeable and interactive with good timing.

    Yet again, what has become our favorite restaurant was absolutely awesome. My girlfriend got chicken parmigiana, I had the eggplant parmigiana, and both were perfect. Dan our (favorite) waiter was great, which is how all the people are at Ristorante Filippo. I feel as though this place is the perfect example of a "hidden gem", and as more people find out about it, more people will understand why it's so popular with us regulars. Check it out soon!

    Love this neighborhood restaurant. Always has yummy food w/great service. Ideal and safe location in Jefferson Parish. Enjoy the uptown NOLA restaurants but the crime surge is keeping us in Metairie and this restaurant never fails to deliver, just like our favorites uptown. Drinks perfectly mixed, good menu selection, food arrives hot and the service was outstanding. Liked the private little room in back, too. Only 3 tables in there & wondered if we would be ignored by waitstaff, but just the opposite! Like that there's a leisurely wait between drinks, appetizer, main course & dessert. Reservations necessary on a Saturday evening.

    I wish that I had never walked into this place. Being a chef myself, I love supporting family owned establishments. I read the reviews and I thought that I would love this place, but nothing could be further from the truth. The place is falling apart for starters, and my guest shared her concerns, but the owner's wife was welcoming, so I said, "Lets' give this place a chance," so we stayed. Nothing went right from this point forward: Items listed on the menu were not available, the wait staff were inattentive (I had to clear my own table twice), odd ingredient choices by the chef/owner, who, by the way, was seldom in the kitchen, but was constantly working the room. All of their tomato sauce is sweet - not just a little, but like candy. Their response was that this is the Sicilian way of preparing tomato sauce. It was too sweet and detracted from the food's flavor. I do not know a single Italian that would agree with their recipe. The waitress took her time to check on us and by the time she did, we had eaten some of the dish, because we were tired and hungry and just wanted to get out of there. I discussed my concern of the sauce with the waitress and she got the owner's wife, who had greeted us earlier. I will spare you the detail, but it got really ugly fast. They kept insisting that we stay and that they would give us desserts. I said that I didn't want a dessert, that I just wanted to leave. We felt like prisoners. Finally, they brought me the bill after much back-and-forth. I paid my bill and left with my guest. The chef/owner followed me out of the restaurant while yelling at me and telling me that I was a horrible person. Although I felt charitable to this family, they were very rude and in my opinion, have no business running a restaurant. All they want is your money. The food was as poor as the service and I truly have never been treated so poorly in my 50 years of restaurant dining. Gordon Ramsey... Please take notice of this place. They need your help.

    GREAT service, great food! My date had eggplant parmesan, I had grilled chicken and pasta. She ate almost all of it (and she is not a big eater but it was delicious), and the grilled chicken was thin AND tender, which is a rarity. Dan our waiter was extremely attentive but not overly so, and the restaurant was clean and very quaint. We were sitting next to a table of 10 and the family there was a bit vocal, but they were having fun which added to the fun of the dinner. DEFINITELY would go back. Its like a hidden gem that's been around a long time! 10 out of 10.

    Wonderful “neighborhood” restaurant. Family owned / run by lovely Italian couple. True hospitality in quaint atmosphere. Fresh fish w/lump crab was divine. Chicken Marsala w/pasta was good. Portions are large. Smaller appetites should share apps/salad. GENEROUS drinks.

    Our waitress kept coming to our table, asking us to order when we were clearly enjoying our wine and conversation. I ordered 2 appetizers for my meal and gave her instructions to bring them out at the same time as the entrees my companions ordered. She did not. Otherwise, it was a good dining experience.

    Our server Laurie did an excellent job of taking care of us. Our drinks before the meal were just right. We had the Artichoke soup it was good but it could have used a touch more salt. The star of the table was the chicken Alfredo the other dining with us went for the veal parm. Over all it was a good night.
