The salad was over dressed , the meatballs too much filler not meat , pasta passable . We had to wear our scarves around our necks over sweaters and the people in either side of us put their winter coats on to dine . We won’t be back!!!!

The atmosphere is beautiful and the service was attentive without being stuffy. But the prices are ridiculous. Chicken Parmesan for $29? It is absurd.

Always a great experience. Informed them it was our anniversary and that my wife was expecting and they made sure to check that all the dishes were cooked so there would be no concern with pregnancy. The service, as always was fantastic.
This is our go-to spot for any special occasion and even just a fun dinner out. Will always recommend.

Came here to celebrate my seventh anniversary and it was an amazing experience. Our server, Marco, guided us through the menu and provided amazing suggestions throughout the meal. The food was to die for, but the service alone would have made this one of the finest meals I've ever had.

My colleagues had been wanting to eat here while we were in town for a conference, so we booked a table. Everything about this experience was fantastic. Our dinner guide (I prefer that to “server”) Anton is one of the most charming people any of us have met lately. He has a delightful accent, knows the menu inside and out, and made informed (and perfect) recommendations for each course. Everything from the cocktails to the meringata dessert was balanced and flavorful. I will definitely be back!

We had an amazing waiter that not only allowed us to take our time with our meal and experience, but he was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We sat in the dining room side and had no problem hearing each other as we enjoyed our meal. The people sitting next to us let us know that service was quite fast so if we wanted to enjoy the night out we should order each course after we finish the one at hand. The food was outstanding from beginning to end. The sausage stuffed olives are to die for as was the recotta bread and really everything we ate. Highly recommend!

Great experience. Great food and atmosphere. Didn’t give 5 stars on “Over-all” because we were seated a half hour past our reserved time. When we arrived the hostess asked us to wait at the bar and she confirmed my cell number. We waited at the bar and within eyesight of the hostess and spent $$ while doing so. When we inquired why our reservation was not honored in a more timely fashion, she indicated it was because she had us down as eating at the bar. That was never the case and was not what I had reserved. Her attitude was unprofessional in her response. We spoke to a manager who worked to rectify the issue. She is better as a hostess at Ruby Tuesday than RMP.

All else was impressive. What excellent staff overall. Soo Jin Park was our waitress and she is phenomenal. She made our night! We’ll be back. But as it relates to the hostess, she needs customer service training. She is offensive and the one negative that informed my rating.

I have a client who raves about this restaurant and she dines at RPM regularly. It has been on my list of restaurants to try for a while. I made a reservation with a friend who has Celiac Disease since they have a great gluten free menu. The service didn't feel right for a fine dining experience. The food was reasonable, but didn't exceed expectation. We liked the buratta and their pistachio ice cream more than our mains. Perhaps my expectations were too high.
