Great experience, I’ll definitely be back, but if I order the lobster ravioli again, please give more than 4 ravioli. It was delicious!

We had the Burrata Panzanella as an appetizer -- it was flavorful with a portion size for 2-3 diners. The pastas, Pappardelle "Pasta E Fagioli" and Risotto "Frutti Di Mare" were flavorful and came in generous portion sizes.

Our waitress disappeared, the wait between courses was super long and our entrees were disappointing. My sparkling rose was also room temp. Lasagna was cold on the outside but hot inside, halibut was such a tiny portion for $30 and so sadly overcooked but the vegetables were delicious. Such a tiny portion for the price. We really enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana and pasta last time. The manager kindly purchased us dessert and as a food business owner myself, sometimes it’s just a difficult evening. Hoping to come back again on a better evening.

The server, while very kind, couldn't seem to pace things out at all, forgot things left and right, was completely disorganized. We had to ask him to remove dirty dishes, to bring drinks, to bring water, etc. Food was ok but the carbonara was definitely custard-like. Much too heavy and not a true carbonara.

Our server was trying to keep us happy but was evident she was frustrated as well.

Apparently there were problems with the ticketing system the night we visited.. no problem! my friends and I all have worked in the restaurant industry and know how it is sometimes! However there was absolutely no communication from our server when first our apps came out 45 minutes after we ordered. We waited another 45 minutes for our entrees (that we ordered before we even got our apps) and then they forgot an entree.. another 15 min wait. The whole time no communication from our server. She dropped a side dish to our table with no explanation of what it was, we had to ask for the manager who was great and did comp the forgotten meal and finally gave us an explanation for why everything was taking so long. We were mostly severely disappointed with the service we got from our server. For the 2 hours we were there we were barley checked in on which was quiet ridiculous considering the wait times, 0 explanations and no apology or regard for our table. We all felt that even with the wait if our table hadn’t been continuously ignored we may have had a better experience. Then that thought was squashed when we were able to hear and see her complain about our table to other coworkers.

The lobster tortellini was very tasty, but the hazel nuts were a downer. Why?? They were not needed and made the creamy dish a bit off and did not fit the dish. The sauce was delicious. Would have like to know if the pasta was squid ink or food coloring..im pretty sure it was not squid ink. The iron flavor of ink was not there. The GM and our server were off the hook!! I would return just for them.. As far as hitting the mark as an upscale homemade pasta restaurant. Missed the mark.

The gnocchi, which are a perennial favorite were fantastic too as was everything. You can't go wrong here. This was the Mother's day buffet and it's the second one I've been to. Highly recommend it and at any other time too.

My mother had a wonderful visit. The food was delicious as always.

The food was tasty especially the gnocchi and the French toast with berry compote. They do need to work on keeping the food hot. All the food was Lukewarm at best. They had a huge selection of pastries behind the glass but only two out on buffet. Left me wanting more. Service was good. I would try it again but they need to work on food temperature

Sorry to hear the food was not up to temperature on the buffet. While this can happen very quickly with buffets, we want to be sure all our guests thoroughly enjoy their meals. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our manager on duty if you stop in for our next brunch. They would be more than happy to get you a hot portion of anything (as long as it’s still available) and will also be able to check on the buffet temp to ensure other guests have a hot and delicious brunch as well.
