    This was disappointing. We were a party of 2 and were sat in an area of the restaurant that used to be an outdoor patio which was not insulated well and without adequate heating (at least it wasn't that February evening). Everyone (literally) was eating dinner in their winter coats. We chose not to get more drinks or dessert mostly for this reason. The worst part of the evening was hearing how our server was allowed to be treated by another table, consistently getting yelled at for how long the kitchen was taking with their order (a large party). This was not the vibe we wanted for a birthday dinner and won't be back.

    Service attentive, though short staffed. Food very good. Loud, inebriated guests allowed to scream and yell in the dining room, disturbing fellow diners. Will try again...

    great menu and great spot for a date night out - - appetizers, main course and wine excellent - the dessert was served a little too chilly - but other than that we really liked it - the place has 5 levels and we will come back to find the married couples spot

    I scheduled a Valentine's dinner with my Fiancee at Umbria, when we arrived they took us through two floors of their restaurant with seemingly available romantic dining throughout. Instead, we were sat in a separate section of which was much more bar/club like (wicker chairs, large bar, loud music) than our desired romantic evening. When we were sat, we were the only customers put in this section. Clearly, I don't know all the ins and outs of what led us being sat there. However, it was a bit of a disappointment. The food was okay, but did not overmatch our disappointment.

    I got a text that my table was ready, then when I went up to check in, I was told it was not ready and to give them 10 more min. Why text me that then? Service was slow, the folks in the MIA bar were very rude to Umbria patrons. Toilet didn’t flush in upstairs bathroom. Lots of potential here bc the food was fantastic, they just need to work through these kinks.

    Steak was good but braised short rib ravioli was not great. Meal came out very quickly but would have liked it to be stretched out a bit more as the entree came right as they were taking the apps away. Was disappointed because it was my birthday. My boyfriend told the hostess. I also told the waiter. We ordered dessert and they did not bring any candles or anything special! The table next to us was also celebrating and were sent a candle so that made me sad and put a damper on the night. For a 200+ dollar meal I felt like the service should have been better.

    Food, drinks & service were outstanding. Noise level was very loud probably because of just a few obnoxious diners. Value was kind of over the top, not what we expected in the North End. But times have changed and I guess you shouldn’t be surprised anymore. Thanks

    This new hot spot has potential. Service was slow (only 1 server in the rooftop room), food was served room temperature (we should have sent it back but didn't because we were starving). We sat in the upstairs roof deck room (enclosed and heated for the winter) I wouldn't sit there again during the winter. There seemed to be several managers working (guys in suits walking around) but not helping the server.
