So fun eating in the igloo! The food was excellent and so was the service. We could have possibly used one more heater, but I think thats because it was exceptionally cold and snowing. But having birthday dinner in an igloo was super fun and food was delicious.
Excellent experience! Ambience, service, food quality. And super celiac friendly!!
It’s our Friday night place to go! Good food good people good surroundings good vibes
We had a great experience with the outdoor igloo. The staff was really friendly, food was prompt and good. Would definitely do again- the igloo was a lot of fun, made it feel like we were away somewhere!
Great way to have a covid-safe dining experience in outside igloo!
Igloo dining was delightful. It was clean, warm, and we’ll illuminated.
We had a great, very COVID safe family dining experience in one of the exterior igloos! Warm and toast, yummy food and outstanding service.
Lovely delicious dinner inside by fireplace. Good distance between tables. Service and food was wonderful. Next time we will try an outside igloo!
Love the igloos
Amazing dinner! Food and service great as always, Estevao is the best!! Our favorite restaurant, will be back again soon.
Igloos are super fun! Nice and warm, private - great for Covid safe dining!
Had so much fun in the igloo!
Great alternative to eating outdoors! ( the igloo seating)
Service was great
Excellent service. Salmon was superb and cooked perfectly. Whipped cauliflower was delicious. Martini was a generous pour.
One major disappointment was the bruschetta, which was served cold on bread that was not grilled or toasted. The toppings were skimpy and looked and tasted like they were made hours ago. I should have sent it back.
Fantastic service and food! Wonderful environment and a great way to celebrate the New Year.
Our server was excellent.
Food was good, but great. The vegetable bowl seemed dry and the Brussels and beets undercooked. Drinks were good and great kids menu.
Food and service excellent. Igloos were brilliant and gave you both comfort from covid and privacy for a family event.
We had dinner in igloo! The igloos are just gorgeous and very warm! We had a family dinner with grandparents and 8 year old kids and all of us were very comfortable and ate while dressed in single layer. Staff was great, food was good. Very nice and safe experience!
Our server was wonderful. The food was consistently very good. We love the igloo setting.
Took our kids and grandkids for dinner in the igloo. Exceptional service, everyone enjoyed their meals, and the ambiance of igloo was great! Highly recommend
Christmas Eve with family
Great food and service
We had the most delicious meal in an igloo! Was cozy and warm and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.
It was a really nice dinner. The only thing that wasn't good was that the hostess put a piece of paper on our table indicating our "checkout time." This is incredibly rude. We tossed it on the floor and ate our dinner in our own time.
Patricia, 1.5 hours is allotted for each igloo reservation, as stated on OpenTable. We gently remind our guests of the allotted time, leaving a courtesy card on the table noting their checkout so everyone can enjoy their igloo. The guests before you received a courtesy card so your igloo would be ready for you. This is our second igloo season and not one guest has ever felt it rude nor disregarded our policy. I am sorry you felt offended, and hope we can serve you again soon. Bill Rizzuto
Great Menu, great staff. Very attentive but not annoying.
Good wine selection.
Great spot, delicious food, friendly service.
We sat near the fireplace in the room behind the bar. The service was very attentive. The drinks were perfect( and I’m super picky!). The Caesar salad could use improving. I don’t think Caesar salad has tomatoes in it. The swordfish was delicious. I love the igloos outside and will be back with friends to try one out!
It was a very nice dinner. The food was good, and the igloos were fun. They made everything feel cozy. The server was very nice and attentive, and the food came out quickly. I would recommend this restaurant.
Five of us had dinner the food was great. We decided to try the igloo outside. It was very nice ! However, there is an hour and a half time limit and it felt rushed because we were waiting a lot for the food and drinks to be served. Brought the check without asking if we wanted dessert and when we ordered dessert the waitress seemed annoyed. And we were not over the time limit. We were told that there is a high demand for the igloos but still.........
Everything was very good. Loved the outdoor igloo - quiet, private and cozy.
Had a great time here for drinks, oysters and split apps with a friend. The holiday season is the perfect time to go with the heated igloos outside for your own little social bubble. Such a cool experience!
Fatima is a wonderful server
It was such a great night out! The Igloos were beautiful and food was yummy
I had dinner at Rizzuto's yesterday with a friend. I had reserved one of the Igloos, which was perfect, they are heated and private. Our server was attentive and prompt. We love the crab cakes, they are full of crab meat with none of the usual breadcrumb fillers.
Ate outside in one of their igloos…so fun. Was toasty warm too!
All around Great!
Amazing outdoor experience with good food and great service.
Great place to eat either in the bar area which include high tops for 2 or regular tables for 4. Inside the dining room there is a fire place, a view of the kitchen and large pizza oven with ambient lighting.
Dinner was delicious, ordered from the make your own pasta. Our server was excellent! Just enough service, not too much or too little. The igloo was perfect! Just enough warmth on a cold night. Will definitely return!
