EXCELLENT FOOD, TERRIFIC MENU CHOICES, AND VERY GOOD SERVICE
Lunch was a very relaxing afternoon with delicious food and excellent service.
We ate at Castello for Father’s Day. We sat outside and had the place to ourselves! The oysters were delicious and so was the tortellini stuffed with lamb and the seafood fettuccini. Our server was very attentive and the check was quite reasonable.
For my family, it was a "one and done." We will not be visiting again.
Going out to dinner on a Saturday night is like deciding to go for a drink on New Years Eve or St Paddy's day. This is a fine restaurant but they felt overwhelmed on this night.
John , our waiter was knowledgable but became officious when stressed by taking on too many responsibilities, 3 pieces of bread were served to a table of 4. Drinks were served incorrectly.(no Absolut vodka? Ok couldn't make a sazarac, Manhattan arrived straight up rather than on rocks)
The bright light of the staff was Princess who found time to be warm and caring (her second night). The food was very good and certainly deserving of another visit, on a weeknight.
delicious food, great & accommodating service and nice for an upscale night together
We took our friends to Castellos for their first visit and they can't wait to come back again! Our meals were outstanding and the service was excellent! So happy it's not too far from our home!
It is always consistently delicious . The chicken park and pink sauce on the pasta is very good . The service is always good too.
Dover sole is always prepared to perfection.
Not a happy experience. Food overly complicated! Too much stuff on every item.
Service poor, inexperienced. Forgot the birthday cake!
Getting bigger than they can handle, Too bad.
Was a favorite. Won't be back.
The meal was superb. We ended up with 2 waiters that served us, and I think they need to communicate a little better. Everything we ordered was very tasty and well presented. The staff hustles around quickly, but at times do not see or ask if you need anything else. Once you ask, they are happy to help. The add-ons to the menu are so incredible, I have not looked at the printed menu yet! We will go back again.
Saturday lunch with 3 girlfriends. They were all so pleased and thought the food was amazing!! My Procceca was immediately put in an ice bucket and John our waiter was very attentive and at the same time never made us feel that we were holding up the table. We made future plans to return!
Excellent in everywqy. The food was delicious nd cery freah. The wIter was knowledgeable and very charming. Even the desserts were delicious. fish is fresg and deluciously prepared.
Love it here! Food and service is always fantastic!!
We have been here several times. The food and service are always great.
From past reviews I expected there might be problems with service. Our server (Scott) was very pleasant and could not want to prove the reviews wrong any better than he did. Place was a bit noisy but not unbearable. I would give it a 4 3/4 rating
Great service and food; excellent for special occaisions
our waiter John needs to be more attentive seemed overwhelmed took our order and that was
it. the other servers brought our food drinks didn't come back to ask if everything was okay.
Seem him at desert time and bill time. the other servers were better.
Ossa Bucca had sauce on it however the description did not say it came with a sauce on it. My mother could not eat it. Was initially told that’s how it was prepared. Sent it back. Then was told that there was a “ Few” in the back done w/out sauce. So she accepted it. However when she got it it tasted as if we’re old and reheated. So we were not satisfied with that meal.
My lobster ravioli was delicious. The calamari appetizer could have been a little more crispier .
Food was good. Great atmosphere. Only one waiter for entire restaurant. Long wait for drinks, apps, entrees, dessert, and check. Need to be better staffed
We went there for Mother's Day. There was a fixed menu, which we were not aware of, so the selections were limited. The service was excellent, but I felt the pricing was a bit high.
This restaurant is way way too expensive for what you get...soup was cold, bread was terrible, calamari was undercooked. The dover sole was average at best, not worth $40.
On a positive note our waiter was very good and attentive.
Great service and a great meal. Love that there is no corking fee. Huge bonus because we prefer to bring the wine of our choice.
The Branzino was amazing and a large portion as always. Double what you get in many restaurants and cooked so nicely. The blackened Tuna was also delectable, and again a huge portion. The grilled octopus was just okay. Not their strongest dish. Maybe I like a more traditional Mediterranean marinade, but it was also a tad over cooked. Desert was tremendous. Can’t go wrong with any of their deserts. Large portions so you can definitely share.
We will be back soon!
Had been wanting to try Ristaurante Castello for a long time. Finally made it on a Saturday afternoon. Decor is warm and appealing. The wait staff was friendly, but professional. The bread was delicious. It was tempting to make a meal of that alone. Our entrees were excellent and plentiful. I was concerned that it would be awkward doing the BYOB thing at a restaurant with a full bar, but it was completely comfortable. We will definitely be back!
Had been here once before for the first time to celebrate my birthday. Did not disappoint as we opted to come back and celebrate our anniversary. Adding to our "favorites" list -- will be back again!! Delicious food and great service.
Girls night out. We had great service and excellent food. Definitely will be going again.
I been in the restaurant fine dining business 25 years of my life, when a waiter tells me branzino fish
takes 50 minutes to cook after we waited hour for our food..ridiculous.
In fairness the spinach salad dressing was good,
the the chicken saltimbocca was horrible american version.
chicken w/ pounded prosciutto into the chicken, sauteed in dark demi glace..that's it.!
No spinach, no olives, no garlic, no cheese, no light wine sauce.
Branzino was good but ..you need to heat a plate under the broiler or oven to put fish on to keep hot after dissecting bones at the table
Now on a positive note..the scallop or au gratin potatoes were very good.
Excellent food and service for our group of 12 people. they even turned on the basketball game for us to watch during desert. Always good seafood specials.
Service was wonderful and friendly along with attention to our every need.
Excellent food. Our party had four different entrees and each was delicious. We had the rack of lamb, filet minion, sole and a veal Costello dish. All got high marks. We shared a delicious chocolate cake for dessert. The bread was crisp on the outside and soft on the inside - as it should be. Love this restaurant.
Once again, another fantastic dinner at Castillos. This is our favorite place for special occasions and family gatherings.
We were extremely disappointed with the service: the bread was thrown on the table, we had to flag the waiter to take our order and our meals were barely tepid. The cost of the dinner entrees was about average, but the 'extras' were high, $11 for a slice of cake and $8 for a glass of an inexpensive wine. We would not recommend nor will we be going back.
Our new go to place when in the mood for a nice piece of fish. Tried the snapper in pistachio this time and it was tasty, but not as good as the bronzino or halibut in the past. Bread was outstanding for some reason tonight. Orange roughy special never disappoints. No room for dessert.
One of our local favorites, always meets expectations. Food is excellent
One of our all-time favorite restaurants. The food, service and atmosphere all made for a phenomenal evening. Scott and Sam, our waiters, we’re extremely attentive and didn’t miss a single detail all evening !
The food at this restaurant is very good. It is Italian and not of the down home spaghetti and meatballs variety. I've eaten here at least three times now, and each time the food has been excellent. On this most recent occasion, we ordered a wide variety of food from Branzino to Steak to pasta. We all loved our meals.
If you want to give Castello a try, reserve well in advance. It is incredibly popular. Unfortunately, it takes forever for every stage of service. They seated us right on time, and then we waited a long time for a waitress to come to talk to us. She left and there was another long wait before our order was taken. Our reservation was at 7:30. I can't remember when our appetizers came, but we were not served our entrees until 9:30. After we were served, we couldn't get the attention of anyone to refill our water glasses.
Another thing that marred the evening was that the restaurant was so loud that we had trouble talking to anyone but the people next to us. There were six of us, but we didn't end up feeling like we were there together as group due to not being able to be heard across the table.
We really like this place. Food is good with lots of specials. We have been there for lots of family get together and are never disappointed.
Great food which helps justify the higher than normal prices. Service is scattered, water glasses go empty, wine glasses grow cob webs waiting for refills. All in all, what it lacks in ambiance ot more than overcomes with the portion size. Bring your appetite
Our group of 4 ladies thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Food was excellent and service likewise. I highly recommend it.
