Went for a birthday dinner. I think they were understaffed. Our server was so busy I didn’t want to ask for anything. Food was fine, but dessert affogato was disappointing in taste and presentation. Overall, underwhelmed. Could’ve just been an off night.

Service was sub par. Waited several min for drinks and to be greeted. Our friends who were sitting at the table next to us received better service.

First time at Sparrow. Ambiance and decor was very appealing. Service was excellent, definitely a hallmark of the late Peter Holloway’s training of staff. Food was very good to excellent. The standout excellence was the desserts that we ordered. Truly exceptional. Definitely we will return now that we are vaccinated.

We were there to celebrate my daughters graduation. The service was terrible, we saw our server as she was rushing to her other tables...
The food was cold, over seasoned and took and hour to arrive.
I would not recommend.

Appetizer wonderful! service great! Main dishes - nothing exciting. A bit disappointing actually. This is our second time to try it. Would like to see a revamp of the main menu to for a more true Italian meal in terms of sauce and pasta. Simple yet tasty. Sorry! Would not go back .

It was an enjoyable experience. The restaurant is beautiful. Maybe a little loud. The staff is friendly and professional. The food is good. Lots of interesting mixed drinks that my friends enjoyed. I would recommend it for a nice evening out!

This was a date night my husband’s birthday. When the hostess sat us she sprinkled some confetti for his birthday. Cute idea that individualized our visit. Sarah was our waitress. Very sweet and informative. She had excellent knowledge of the menu. She made a wonderful suggestion for wine. Our appetizer was absolutely wonderful, Fritto Misto. Fried asparagus, squash, calamari and shrimp!! Our dinners were wonderful.

The food has excellent presentation and is served spread out, more European style rather than rushed. The atmosphere is calm and modern and the portion size wasn’t overwhelming either!

This was my second time to visit Sparrow and once again it did not disappoint. The food was incredible. The establishment was clean and had a nice selection of music playing low. Our server, Scottie was amazing. She made great recommendations. Can't wait to go back.

We ate in the bar area which I did not like. The girl that waited on us was very good but had way to much to do. It was very unfair to her and to her customers. I would never want to set in the bar area again. Not sure why I was placed there to begin with. Other than that it was excellent. The food is always very good!

The food was outstanding; the waiter was not. My glass of wine arrived after I asked for the check. We ordered 2 margaritas. The 1st was $18, the 2nd was $21.75. They were both the same call brand which we didn’t request.

Not as good as I hoped. The main course was great (ravioli and their chefs special risotto) but the Fritto Misto was awful- soggy, only 2 shrimp, and the lemon aioli was thick and tasteless. The drinks were delicious but it took almost 25 mins to get one drink and we were one of about 8 tables in the restaurant.

The main point is that the food was good. The only thing upsetting was having a reservtion and getting there to a we are sorry the only table left is right in front of the front entry door! I couldn't hear anyone at my table and forget about romance when there are butts backed up to your face standing waiting for a table. For a lunch I would say go for it. For a dinner if your looking for elegance this is not the place.

The ambiance is great. Our server was plenty busy doing the bar and tables. Would suggest explanation of cannoli dessert prior to ordering as we didn't realize it was for two people so we ordered two desserts. The remaining lasagna was even better the second day! We were glad to see you busy this holiday weekend and wish you success this year.

Wine dinner fun. Positives = salad, agnolotti, dessert. Negatives = short ribs just not a fit and too heavy, wine pours way too small. Still excellent establishment. We love Sherri...
