Everything was wonderful, a bit pricey but still highly recommended. We had the Trotta’s filet and the prime rib both were really good.

This has been our fourth visit to Trotta's and we have never been disappointed. The drinks, entree's and service are all outstanding. Everybody in our party enjoyed their meals from steak, to scallops, to the glazed salmon. We were even treated to a violin solo by Carmen who visited our table on a number of occasions to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. I really enjoy the quaint ambiance of the restaurtant and the very friendly staff who will do their very best to accommodate any special requests. We look forward to our next visit!

Ended up sitting at the bar. It was great. Spoke with the ownership most of the evening. We will definitely go back. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Excellent location and excellent service. The reviews aren't wrong at all, the owner and chef were all eager to mingle and speak with their customers.
The food was excellent. I'm pretty particular about steak, and my rib eye was made to near perfection. It didn't haven't any excessive seasoning or additions.
I'd recommend this location and I will surely make a return visit. Oh! And the staff were very accommodating, they even allowed us to dine
privately in the old bank safe.

The best part of Trotta's is how engaged the proprietor and his family are with the restaurant. Every family member will stop by, check on you, and chat and their interest is sincere.

First time visit and we were impressed! The restaurant, which was formerly a bank, was charming and cozy, with an old school vibe. The service was outstanding and several times the owner's father came to check on us to see how our meal was. He even invited my husband to check out the vault door, which he was thrilled about! We would go back just for the hospitality. The food was great for the most part. We ordered meatballs as an app. They were tender and flavorful. However they were served just barely warm and were a little dry. A scoop of simple hot marinara sauce over the top would have taken these to a whole different level. My husband ordered a filet and mashed potatoes. Steak was juicy, delicious and cooked perfectly. Mashed potatoes were the real deal and buttery. I ordered the salmon and Cajun Mac and cheese. The salmon was cooked perfectly but lacking in seasoning and really bland. The Mac and cheese was dry, just warmed and nothing like the cheesy, spicy dish I was hoping for. This was a fail for me so I ordered the potatoes and was a happy girl. The portions were generous and we were full but decided we couldn't leave without trying dessert. So glad we did. Ordered the berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream. It was sooooooo good. We ate almost every bite, which was a challenge since the serving size was almost enough for 3 people. The only issue I had with the cobbler is that it had a dough topping that was more of the consistency of a cooked noodle than anything that resembled a crust. They should either perfect it or leave it off and just call it a mixed berry compote. Oh, and an entertainer was playing the piano while we were dining. Perfect touch! Would go again for sure!!

We were excited to try a (new-to-us) local place for a date night, but Trotta’s fell short. The service and food weren’t great.

We were confirmed for a dining table in the vault (via the person who called to confirm our OpenTable reservation), but it was taken when we arrive. Once sat, my bread plate had butter smeared across it. When our meals arrived, the server asked us to stick our finger in the steak toping sauce to see if it was warm; it was cold. We also ordered a side of mac and cheese, it was bland noodles with a barely melted cheese layer on top. Our steaks were good, but that didn’t make up for everything else.

We had high hopes for a locally owned restaurant; however, the meals were poorly prepared and quite expensive, especially for the quality.

We've been to Trottas a couple of times for dinner and definitely plan on going back. The food was delicious, the ambiance very nice, the owner and chef both walked around and asked how everything was for us. Very personable. Lots of food for the money. We already have plans to take our family there for Thanksgiving dinner.

The food is a bit pricey but it is the best steak I have ever ordered out anywhere! Quaint atmosphere with live music is very enjoyable. The level of noise in the small place made it difficult, at times, to hear conversation, but overall it was an outstanding experience. I would definitely return.

An historic local location, Trotta's Steak restaurant is an excellent local spot with delicious food, good service and very nice people. Since it was formerly a bank, it contains additional dining rooms in the former Safe Deposit vault! Very good quality meat and accompanying sides.

This place is a real hidden gem. Don’t be fooled by the looks. This is a top rate steak place at great prices. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. The owners are very attentive. We had a table of six and everyone was raving after the meal. Homemade desserts helped as well at the end.

This was my first visit to Trotta’s but certainly not my last. My husband & I dined there for dinner and had a great meal. Our waitress Amanda was wonderful. Our cocktails and wine were both enjoyable. My husband had a steak cooked medium rare which was perfect. I had a seafood pasta dish which was delicious. The salad dressings and bread was also very good. We had a delightful dining experience not to mention the piano player that added to the overall ambience. I highly recommend as you won’t be disappointed.

You are treated like family the minute you arrive. The steaks were cooked to perfection and delicious. The owner, his father, and the chef all came to our table to ensure everything was perfect and to our liking. We will definitely be going back again and again.
