    From the moment we walked in, I knew it would be special. The ambiance was nice and my server was amazing all night. Her communication and attention to detail were spot on. As food goes I thought the mushroom risotto was a little under seasoned but perfect Al dente texture. I wish the duck was cooked a little longer on the skin.

    We made a reservation a week in advance and they sat us at the worst table in the restaurant, right by the kitchen. The steak I had was so salty that my mouth went numb from the salt during dinner. The server was not very attentive. This use to be my favorite restaurant and now I will not go back again.

    Found hair in the rack of lamb service was poor but if it wasn’t for the hair it would’ve continued to be sub par. It was my birthday and wont be forgetting this. This place used to me top class. Sad to see those days gone hope they fix it.

    We had a nice private booth under the skylight area and it was quiet enough that we could visit easily. Front desk staff were extremely personable and helpful. Waiter seemed a little new but was ok, assume he just needs more time to polish his skills. Always love the food and ambiance.

    We were celebrating our anniversary. As we were being seated, we requested a booth but were told that we would have had to request that when we made our reservation. This has never been an issue before and there were open booths throughout our time there. I tried to order a cocktail from the special menu but was told that they were out of one ingredient. Finally we were told that the dessert we ordered was no longer available.

    I have a long history with Spezia and every time has been absolutely superb in ambiance, service, noise level, quality and taste of food. I did experience a food snafu for the first time however this time. When I have ordered the lamb in the past, it was always perfectly tender. This time was not only hard to cut but equally hard to chew. It tasted wonderful...it was just super tough meat which was quite surprising. It spoiled an otherwise perfect meal. For the price of the lamb, I'd love to see a little more care in the quality of the meat.

    We were a little disappointed by being place in one of the back rooms where the ambiance is just 'fair'. I had placed the reservations early in the week. We were a party of two sitting with more tables of 5 or more.

    We create an out of town guest to lunch. He and my wife enjoyed the seafood risotto. My grilled tuna had some inedible fibers in it --- no way for the chef to know that though. The service was great in a very full house. The only noise problem was one large and loud table. Always good to see a favorite place busy. We will return.
