    We had an amazing experience with Jessica last evening. She took phenomenal care of us for my wife’s birthday. The cuisine was on point. The wine and company were equally great. We will certainly be back soon.

    My wife and I went there with another couple. We all had a lot of fun and the food was great. Service was also great. If you want a place with a lot of energy this was what we experienced. Bar was really busy and so was the restaurant. There was a band that played and they were great. One negative was a fight broke out in the bar area. They had bouncers who removed a person that I’m assuming was involved. I was surprised at that but I guess if there’s alcohol and a festive bar area it can happen. It was still very nice and we will go back.

    Very cosy space. Servers attentive and friendly, even the owner stopped by our table. Noisy but it was a Friday night. Food takes awhile to come out, but again, it was a Friday night. Overall it was a great dinner, and we even got to sit in the same booth as the RHOC episode!

    Meals were disappointing. Chicken picatta wasn’t even close to a picatta! It was roasted chicken and mediocre at best. Short rib pasta was terrible. Been there before but won’t go back.

    We came for a special occasion-have not been here for a few years although this is a favorite. Generous portions! Love the BLT salad=the best ever. My husband had the lobster tacos which were great. Only negatives- we were served our food in the middle of the salad...which felt rushed. and the noise level was intense. Nevertheless, we will return!

    Ordered broccoli which never came. Ordered two baseball steaks medium rare that came out medium medium well and they ran out of mashed potatoes that the dish came with so we had french fries. At least the drinks were good.

    Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was comfortable. Bar noise was absolutely awful. No conversation possible in our booth. Really a bummer since everything else was so pleasant. Perhaps one of the booths near the kitchen would be more tolerable; except who wants to sit by the kitchen? Recommend a Yes based on food and service. But, if you want to enjoy conversation over dinner, might want to try somewhere else.

    For twenty years, we have been coming to Quiet Woman when we rent on Balboa Island in the Winter. One of our favorites! Last night we had a 7:00 reservation. It was almost 7:30 before we were seated, but we were treated well and graciously. The host and our server were exemplary , the server particularly so! Very loud , but that is to be expected. Our meal was promptly served and delicious as always.

    Disappointing. Decided to try the quiet woman on Valentine’s Day after many years of not being there. I was surprised to be seated in a back patio area, which looks like a converted garage. I started with the quiet woman’s salad, which was very good. My wife ordered the chicken piccata, and I ordered the Spicy rigatoni à la vodka. My wife was very disappointed in the chicken piccata it was a large breast that was dry and not seasoned well. My spicy rigatoni, à la vodka was delivered lukewarm, obviously sat on the warming table for 10 or 15 minutes because all of the sauce had coagulated, and was so spicy that neither my wife or I could eat it. We decided to get to go containers and take this home. I’m disappointed in the quiet woman because I have fond memories of going there over 30 years ago and the food was great.

    A wonderful experience for my partner and I! The only thing was that they were filming in the main building, and there wasn’t notice until we showed up to our reservation. If we were in a section that had been filmed we would have had to cancel. It was great otherwise! Lovely staff, beautiful patio and amazing food.

    We were in the outside area, along Marguerite. We'd never sat there before and it's very different. Pretty, with the same great food and service, but NOTHING like going to the inside Quiet Woman. So be prepared for that. It's like being in a little cafe.

    We go to the QW all the time! Always great food. Typically, we share meals. This is the first time we were each charged an eight dollar split charge. Our bill was over $350 for 4, so I was caught off guard by this extra charge. Kind of disappointing. We didn’t have our usual server, so maybe that was the difference.

    We eat here six times a year for the birthday of each of us in the group. The food is good, even great, but the wait time do our food is not. This time, it took 1.25 hrs to receive our entrees, from the time we sat, until the plates arrived. And because we eat here so often, we pretty much know what each of the six of us want before we sit. Our server tried to explain that they had a rush at five p.m., but given we had a reservation at five thirty, we were on time (even early), and the reservation was made weeks in advance, our food should have been given a better priority.

    This was my first time dining at The Quiet Woman. The restaurant itself is small and quite dark, but overall a nice atmosphere. It is not quiet, but rather noisy especially where we were sat which was in the bar area. Our reservation was set for 7:30 got sat about 15 mins later. Our waitress, I believe her name was Tiffany, was very nice and attentive. Our lemon drop was delicious and our food was very good. The issue was sitting so close to the bar. The band was very good. Overall, I would rate this restaurant a 4 out of 5.
