    Food was poor. Expensive for the value of the meal. Not made from scratch, everything was from a jar; vegetable overcooked, chicken undercooked. $100 for two bad meals.

    Even though they were absolutely slammed because of the air show, they still got our food out hot and tasty. The poor servers were running themselves ragged, but they did a great job. The only issue was they were running out of some of the menu items . . . they must not have anticipated the volume of customers.

    Ate there with a date. Great venue if you can't get a reservation elsewhere. Great view, location, ambiance. Service is not good. Waiter handed my order to my date to pass to me. She could just have walked around the table. Just one example. Still would go back because its a "go to" for last minute dining and you don't want to site in Carmine's line.

    Our waiter, I believe his name was Marco, was super nice and happy to serve our table as well as help others. Food was really good. All the staff was very friendly. This restaurant is on the 6th floor of the Claridge Hotel, the hotel it self seems a little old. Defiantly will eat dinner here again!

    Our breakfast was Meh, nothing special at all. On the morning we were there the kitchen was very backed up. Our server did bring us a fruit platter while we waited an inordinate amount of time, and she was very nice and prompt with drink refills, but we won’t be returning because the food was just OK.

    The food was what you would expect from a fast food joint . I’m a very good cook and when this was brought to the table , I thought it was a joke . I ordered the Marc Polo and while the price was not a fortune, this meal was something I would not have served to anyone and I was unable to eat it , very little at best My waiter was great as he respected our space and our desire to communicate with very little disruption. Won’t be going back .

    Ordered the veal parm with pasta. The veal was raw and the pasta was extremely over cooked, was mushy. The sauce tasted like they opened a jar of Ragu. I would definitely NOT recommend this restaurant.

    Good food and drinks are to be found at this nice Atlantic City staple. It is located inside one of Atlantic City's grand old hotels, The Claridge. It is a nice experience here, though they need to be open later into the evening, to accommodate their guests .

    3 out of 6 of us couldn’t even eat the food. It was really bad. The waiter never asked what was wrong, seemed bothered by me asking for my wife’s filet to be made again properly. Spoke to manager Saturday and never returned a phone call back as promised. Wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t go back. No shot. Told them it was my wife’s birthday. She didn’t even get a “happy birthday” from the staff. All around, very disappointing.

    We were excited to try this restaurant on our stay in Atlantic City because it had come up as a popular Italian restaurant. We were thankful to have had a reservation. Upon entering, we were ignored by the waitstaff, as there were three standing near the hostess stand. After about 5 minutes, we were greeted, waited a bit longer, and then shown to our table. There were probably about 5 tables filled, one with a larger party. The waitress, who was friendly, came over and asked us what we would like to drink. We asked for a drink menu, and she said there wasn't one but they had a full bar and gave us a few more minutes to decided. When she came back, one of us asked for a margarita and she said they were not able to make that...a full bar has the mixings!! (and later on, another waiter handed the table next to us a drink menu-frustrating!) We placed our order and waited a bit for our food, enjoying the garlic bread. Every time the waitress come over, she was in a rush and said she had other tables to serve. We felt like we were eating in a fast food restaurant at a fine dining cost! She made me feel anxious and rushed, which is not a relaxing way to enjoy an Italian meal. The food was delicious but we felt it was too pricy. I am not sure if I would try this restaurant again before trying others out!

    Having attended a 1920's themed party one weekend prior, we were psyched to have a chance to wear our outfits again (since we were staying at the Claridge anyway). Sadly, there was nothing we noticed in the restaurant that even hinted at the 1920's beyond the name. Food was solid Italian. Service was great. A good value but not fun.
