The menu choices are varied in all categories, and the results are consistently excellent. The basic menu is essentially North Italian with some original dishes. The wait staff is consistently excellent, and the wine choices are adequate, but generally of good quality. It is not an inexpensive experience, but nonetheless satisfying..

One of us was disappointed that when he asked to have a pasta substituted for potatoes he was told he couldn't, and an alternative dish was suggested. That was a reasonable, easy change to make in a restaurant like Violin, and reduced our estimation of the place.

The gentleman refilling our water constantly and getting our wine did a phenomenal job (not our waiter and not his job).
