    My boyfriend and I went for his birthday and everything was great. The atmosphere was nice but not over the top so perfect balance for a special occasion, or a casual meet up with friends. Server was attentive and everything we ate and drank was delicious. Adding to our list of date nights venues!

    We chose this restaurant because of the variety of options and we were not disappointed. I chose the shrimp dish for the 1st course and the steak as the second. Both were delicious and prepared well. The chocolate cake was moist and the cherries made the desert delightful. Lastly, was the presentation. All dishes for photo ready. They were beautiful dishes.

    The food took an extremely long time to come out and then was luke warm. I don’t like food if it’s not hot. Took it home to hopefully enjoy my mean once it’s heated properly. Too expensive a restaurant not to provide basics you can get anywhere like food that is served hot. The restaurant had no cream or half and half for coffee. Huh? Coffee also was not hot like it should have been. Again too expensive a restaurant not to have cream or half and half for coffee. Although the quality of the food seemed to be good the place is not run well like it should be. Somewhat dissappointing and time wasted.

    Food I loved the mushrooms and the duck, but the polenta and beans that came with the duck were bland and didn't add to the dish. The grilled lettuce, gave texture and crunch. But there were only 2 pieces that did not add to the aesthetics of the plate. My tiramisu was a slice of what tasted like sugarless sponge cake drowned in coffee topped with piped mascarpone cream (very inelegantly, I might add) and coffee ice cream. The ice cream tasted good, as well as the mascarpone cream. But the soggy sponge cake and the overall look of the dessert was disappointing. The ratio of cream to sponge cake was also off, but I'm not sure if it was due to the pool of coffee I had at the bottom or the flavorless cake. It really would've been better if the cream was layered with the cake. My friend's dishes of orechiette, braciola(skirt steak) and chocolate cake were good, but not memorable so nothing I would go back for. The Hens of the wood mushrooms really were the star of the show along with the black garlic pesto. Definitely try that if you like mushrooms. Service We went at 5pm and there were only a few tables at that point, which we thought was great! Until... We were seated and waited over 10 minutes for our waitress to come take our order. Then another 15 for the complimentary bread to come. We were pretty starved at this point and quickly finished the bread. Our appetizers arrived a little bit after. We devoured the mushrooms and orechiette. Then proceeded to wait half an hour for our entrees to arrive. We quickly finished the food and it was another 15 minutes before we got dessert. We asked for the check, and then waited another 10 minutes for the waitress to come back and retrieve it. I actually had to call out to her and hand her the check book cause she literally walked past our table to take the order of the table over. The whole dinner took 2 hours for three courses. I mean, if you have the time, by all means.

    Possibly the best Italian cuisine we have ever eaten in a restaurant. Presentation was beautiful, fantastic wine selection. My only regret was that dinner came to an end. Friendly staff. You will be there for at least an hour and a half, but, we knew that up front and it was well worth. Would definitely go back again

    This was our first experience with Panorama. The food was excellent as was the service. The only item to note is that it may be difficult to find. When using WAZE to approach from the North, the hotel was not accurately identified. If not familiar with the area use approach from the South. It will be worth the extra effort.

    I had a great time there. I had a special ravioli made with shrimp scallops and crab as an appetizer. I also tried their pineapple margarita which was very tasty. For my main course I had the sirloin it was well seasoned and cooked just right. Our server was very attentive but not overbearing

    We booked the restaurant based on photos of their available outdoor dining options (and theater proximity). However, their dining tent has no tables or chairs -- just a guy watering flowers because they "didn't expect to be that busy that night." Disappointing.

    Even though there was a large party, we still were taken care of with attention by our server. Food was outstanding (get the eggplant parm appetizer!). A true Italian will enjoy their hand rolled pasta. Small place so make a reservation or sit at the bar. Cocktails were pricey so maybe check out their happy hour.

    We have been fans of Panorama since our first dinner date there, more than 20 years ago. The wine flights are always well combined and the food is consistently very good, with last nights tuna tartar being a stand-out. Service was outstanding - semi-formal, attentive, yet not intrusive.

The wine list is brilliant and the sommelier is always at the ready to help you pick one. I recommend staying at the attached Penns View boutique hotel for an amazing stay.

    Not upscale dinning by any means. Pleasant enough, but definitely below our normal Italian standards. Music was so horrible and loud. I started with the beet salad which was inedible, everything else was just blah.
