    The outdoor seating was perfect with plenty of heat from the propane heaters. The restaurant offers a great view of the landscaping, and coy filled pond along with a wonderful menu. You’ll find professional, polite and sincere service from the staff as well as a great venue .

    Severino’s has several seating options, but the patio is the best choice especially during the balmy days of summer and fall. We enjoyed every bite of the appetizers we chose: the carnitas mac n’ cheese, the mezze plate, and the roasted Brussels sprouts. The entrees, the prosciutto and sage wrapped yellowtail, the brick chicken, and of course, the short ribs served with Parmesan polenta were equally delicious and well-plated. The desserts are varied and worth every calorie. We took our server’s advice and had the Granny Smith apple tart, the chocolate creme brûlée and the freshly made beignets with chocolate sauce—all delicious. The servers could not have been more accommodating and friendly; they are a staff that certainly knows how to make their diners comfortable and content. Plus, the staff works as a team who helps one another to make sure every table is well-served. We will definitely return to enjoy Severino’s charms again in the near future.

    We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in the beautiful garden. They did not have the stuffed chicken breast that I had read such rave reviews, but the pasta carbonara was a delicious substitute. After dinner we retired to the bar for a glass of wine and enjoy a mist entertaining live band. Highly recommend this place and hope to visit again soon.

    Beautiful outdoor setting, great food and service. My husband is celiac and when I inquired, the chef called me personally to explain the menu and the steps his staff would take to be sure he was safe. The kitchen was ready for us when we arrived and we had a wonderful 70th birthday celebration. Thanks so much to the chef, Matt and Matt our server!

    This restaurant was great. All the food ordered was delicious and the ambiance was gorgeous. It was quiet, though had great entertainment. Service was quick and personable. It’s a beautiful area seated outside by the koi pond. I had the braised short ribs, which were delicious. My daughters had fish tacos and loved them, and my son loved the Brussel Sprouts with peppers. The charred artichoke was also yummy. For dessert, the kids all had Chocolate Creme Brûlée which also was a hit!!

    The food was very good but we prefer a brunch menu on Sundays. We were able to get food from the lunch menu because a cheese omelet and waffles were on that menu. Otherwise we probably would have left without ordering anything.

    Wonderful ambience on the patio overlooking koi pond and beautiful plants. Entree of chicken and waffles was lacking in portion size of chicken. Flavor and seasoning was good but portion of chicken (extremely small) overshadowed the price paid for the entree. Other entrees were priced much better giving a better value. Would not order again.

    Their menu has been updated and they did not disappoint. The food was hot and delicious. Our waitress was wonderful and was very attentive from beginning to end. We requested an outdoor table since the weather was nice. They have really nice outdoor dinning with a Koi pond, waterfall and a bridge. It feels like a mini getaway. We can’t wait to return and try some of the other dishes!

    I was pleasantly surprised by this small hotel bar/restaurant. I have lived in the area for many years but was unaware of it. The service was great despite being short handed the team worked well together to get our beverages and food out in a very reasonable amount of time. We sat outside on the patio in the shade and it was perfect. I made a reservation and strongly suggest it if you're planning a visit on the weekend.

    The best part of our experience was the hostess who seated us. She was great! The corn and clam chowder was amazing but the pasta pomodoro was just okay. And they charge for bread, which should totally be included with a pasta meal! The wait staff was also just okay.
