    Fish and chips were extremely salty. The place was also very loud.

    Celebrating Valentine's Day at Sandrini's was great! It was not too hectic like most restaurants would be on this day. The food was delicious, drinks were good and the staff was friendly and attentive. Thinking of making this our yearly Valentine date night.

    Please note that this really is more of a bar than a restaurant, despite descriptions elsewhere. My family of six (ages 11-78) found ourselves seated in an extremely loud bar area with a couple of very drunk women making hella noise. No one else in the bar cared about their clamor, really, but it sure annoyed my dad. Potential to make dads grumpy: High When our food arrived, my dad's did not. We were told there was a "slight delay" in the kitchen. He eventually waited over 1/2 hour for his food, watching us finish ours before his ever came. When it did arrive, it was so poorly prepared (un-fresh/frozen fish) he found it inedible. He sent it back and we were not charged for it. Potential to make dads annoyed: High Everyone else's food was pretty good. Salads, chicken parm, and flatbreads were adequate. Both desserts (apple tart and brownie) took a while to arrive from the kitchen, but they were tasty and fresh and perfectly prepared. I would not return to this bar for dinner with people I want to talk to. It was too loud, cramped and bustling with drunk bar energy to enjoy ourselves.

    Noelle, we're sorry you didn't enjoy your time with us. Please understand you brought your family to the wrong type of business for the dinner you were hoping to enjoy. By definition a public house or pub is a business where people gather primarily to imbibe alcohol and enjoy each other's company. While food is served, drinking and socializing are the main reason guest's frequent a pub. Our name clearly states that is the business we're in. We’re sorry you chose to come down and have a poor experience. We recommend leaving any restaurant that immediately doesn't fit your expectations and would not recommend us to a group such as yourselves. We cater to guests going out to enjoy themselves in an energetic atmosphere, clearly not your group. Grumpy dads have never been our target market.

    Had a wonderful dinner experience w/Sandrinis! We were greeted warmly and sat right away. Orders were taken promptly and dinks arrived in minutes. We were waiting for 2 more people in our party so we waited to order food, but the server checked on us multiple times. When we finally did order we had the guacamole bombs (crunchy, flavorful), the sausage bread (an oldie but goodie! You can never beat its savory deliciousness), the carne asap tots (made well, hit all the right flavor notes), the steak frites (one of the best steaks I have had in awhile- cooked perfectly, so tender, and if you’re a garlic lover you will love this dish) and the pepperoni pizza (a great staple to please the table). Our servers never let us see the bottom of our glasses, were friendly, easy to chat with and all around gave a wonderful experience. We will definitely be returning!
