Birthday dinner with my family - not even 1 candle
This is my third time here since august! I absolutely love this place. The vibe, the food, everything. This time I took my mom & my aunt (who are the pickiest or women!!) so I was very nervous. I had been here before so I wanted to make sure I took them to a place where i KNEW it was good. Thankfully they LOVED it too! My mom was raving all the way home about this restaurant. I’ll obviously be back 😊
Ambience, food and service were on point! Will surely be coming back.
Lovely place with great food and excellent service
This restaurant allowed a couple to come in with a dog that was not a service animal and was out in the open. The dog was allowed to sit at the table in one of the chairs. This was extremely unsanitary and it was quite frustrating considering on Yelp it says no dogs allowed. I will never go back to this restaurant.
Love that they have a patio to dine away from the traffic and people in the street. Food and service is great. Will be back with friends soon!
The ambience is outstanding staff was attentive and welcoming. Presentation of the food was outstanding. Lemon chicken was outstanding calamari was fresh lite and delicious. Duck was fantastic. Overall great restaurant will come again.
The outside dining has been done beautifully. I loved the jazz as well. Jason was a very attentive waiter. It was a very good experience overall.
I love this place and would definitely go back. I went for a birthday and the waiter was so attentive and had a great personality. The ambiance makes you want to stay all night. Fantastic
We were informed that the kitchen was backed up, which caused our appetizers and entrees to be exponentially delayed. Drinks also took long to be delivered. Our server was apologetic and gave our table a pitcher of sangria and a dessert on the house as means to placate the situation.
Love the outdoor dining oasis they created!!! The food and service was superb, will definitely go back!
We wanted to sit outside but it was very chilly. There were no outdoor heaters so we chose to sit at the bar. 45 for tuna tartare and 45 for filet mignon. They were very disorganized like they just opened. Not a great experience at all.
Such a lovely place. Food was amazing. Had a great dinner with my friends. Excellent service too.
Excellent food. Kitchen a little slow in delivering. Wonderful, friendly, accommodating waitstaff.
We sat down and told the waiter that this was our first meal at Rustica. He recommended the seafood so we ordered the seafood tower which took almost an hour to reach our table. In fact, we had the seafood tower after we had eaten our entrees. I had to order my drink twice because the waiter forgot the first time. I ordered the Caesar salad which the menu said would contain baby romaine lettuce and we revived regular romaine lettuce. Nothing special about the seafood tower. The cocktail sauce was too sweet, tasted like it was fresh out of the jar from the supermarket. Doesn’t compare to Biggie’s.
Gorgeous setting! They were able to accommodate our party of 8. Drinks were delicious and the food was great! It came out so quickly! Our waitress was very kind and attentive.
Outdoor seating and service were so good! Food was delicious and the overall ambience was great and I would definitely go there again.
It was good but not what I expected. The server just tried to get you to buy the more expensive food item on the menu. It was also a friends birthday and we brought a cake. We were charged an addition $30.. ridiculous.
Awesome food, great atmosphere and service. One of the nicest outdoor setups I have seen. The new bar area remodel is very cool.
We went there for my husband’s birthday dinner. The food and service was great. The ambiance was good and social distancing was being followed. Overall, good experience will go back.
We should have looked at the regular lunch menu , we did not care for the brunch that much but we loved the ambiance!! next time we will try the waffles or salads or other options... the Jazz was a nice touch and the drinks were gd!
Great food. Great courtyard, and lovely martinis.
Always a great spot.
We had a wonderful evening my husband and I. The ambience was great outdoors and we enjoyed our date. The food was good but not great. We enjoyed drinking our bottle of wine and our time away from home.
Spectacular place. We felt at peace, very welcoming.
Excellent food and service at Rustica. I will definitely come back.
Upon arrival I was impressed with their outdoor decor it was Great and trendy. Live instrumental was best touch to the restaurant. Food and service was 5 stars
Wow Rustica! Well done on creating such a cozy setting! I’ve always been a fan of the decor, but I was so impressed with the thought put into creating an oasis away from the current situation! The service was great, our server did not rush us and was really nice. The food was fantastic. I’m glad I chose Rustica from my first dining experience in 5 months!
Our waiter was very friendly and professional. Very attentive as well.
Rare & unpleasant smell in the seating area and food was mediocre, not great.
Great, highly recommended !!
Great ambience! Food was good and service was fantastic.
The way they have transformed their outdoor dining to accommodate during these times is outstanding! Perfect place for a date night or any occasion.
Underwhelmed by the food. If you want a beautiful patio to spend time on, this is your place! If you want a delicious meal, consider going elsewhere!
The bottomless mimosas service and the food lend to an amazing brunch
The outside area is just beautiful. The live jazz at just the right level. The food is simply delicious and very high quality. Best filet mignon we ever ate it was cooked to perfection and like butter! The service was great and the cocktails were on point!
Went to Rustica Lounge to celebrate my fiance's birthday. The outdoor dining was very nice and the food and drinks were delicious!
Loved it....service was great- loved the jazz music- great night%!
Great food, small food portion size, I typically eat salads for dinner, but this salad was TINY! I had to order a side of fries afterwards since it was not filling, but at the same time, I’m not big on dessert. Ordered a side of shrimp with my salad and only 3 were served. Great service. They sat my party of 2 need to the kitchen door and the common walking area, was not very pleased with that, but at the same time I did not say anything either. I would suggest using that seating as a last resort, there were so many open tables and they sat me at the highest walking area. Over all good experience minus the seating location.
