    Our waiter was great… I wish I could remember his name. Everything would’ve been fine but the table we were given was right on the main aisle and people kept coming and going and sometimes bumping my chair. The atrium area looks very inviting and I wish we would have requested that. We had lunch and went shopping and then circle back to the bar for a refreshing Aperol Spritz.

    I usually don't go to Il Fornaio much bc of a few bad experiences. I ordered a salmon with the dressing on the side. I got it with the dressing on top. I sent it back and it was returned very very dry and I could barely eat it. The server was just matter of fact and not empathetic at all. Besides we could barely understand and hear her through her mask as she didn't speak loudly or clearly. She did not charge for my dish but not sure I will go there again unless someone invites us and that's where they truly wish to go.

    We got a great round table for 5 with a view of the fireplace; and the server was excellent, very responsive. Most got salads; one was a work of art. My pizza was OK, not memorable. The tiarimisu was excellent. Very pleasant place to have a celebratory lunch!

    Very disappointed with our meal. I ordered the special lobster ravioli dish and it was served luke warm at best. My fiancé ordered the salmon which was okay not a lot of flavor and the roasted potatoes were like sponge balls. Grew up in the City and Il Fornaio was always top both notch. We were there for an early reservation, 5:15 so it wasn’t busy, but very disappointing. Not sure I would go there again.

    Unfortunately, we spent nearly 30 minutes with no service, no water, and no explanation. Not the first time the color of my skin leaves us unattended before needing to make a scene. We watched white guests get seated after us and serviced by our appointed server in the same section. Appalling. Thanks for nothing.

    We have been coming here for decades. Caesar salad was horrible, basically just dry lettuce. Big of a lag between salad and main course. Use to be much better over all. Was disappointed.

    My husband and I are regular patrons of IL Fornaio and we always look forward to a great meal when we dine there. Needless to say, dinner last night was absolutely delicious and we of course will be back soon! Also, our favorite server, "Miguel" never fails to render excellent service.

    Hi Il Fornaio. I carefully made a reservati on own line. We know the restaurant gets crowded. When we arrived and tried to check in with the two ladies at the front they could not find our reservation. Nevertheless, it was only about 1730 hours and they kindly found a table next to the entrance of the fireplace room we felt quite comfortable. We often specifically want that table. we being in our nineties like the back to the wall quietness. We are long time customers .Ans ha-ha we love the breads and butter as well. Cheers. john d. lannom

    Had a lovely meal in the back of the restaurant. We felt secluded from others, which we prefer when we dine with kids. The food was superb and excellent service. I highly recommend the butternut squash filled pasta and pumpkin cheesecake! Will definitely come back when we’re in the area.

    Great wait staff and manager. The only disappointment was the food. The excellent sliced New York steak was swimming in what I can only describe as a sea of Campbell’s cream of tomato soup, the dish would have been excellent with out it. Unfortunately the salmon was very dry, we got sauce to moisturize it. The manager was apologetic and we received a free tiramisu which was great. Overall it’s a wonderful restaurant but the food needs some fine tuning.

    The three of us arrived, got seated and our waiter was right there. He got us drinks and took our order. This was Thanksgiving and the place was packed. Once we ordered, our soup arrived with the salad shortly after. Then our plate with three great pieces of breast turkey, a sweet potato, mashed potatoes and asparagus all five star tasting. A dessert of pumpkin pie with a scoop of ice cream. We were in and out with no hesitation in the service but also no rush. This experience was wonderful.
