Not impressed. Had a reservation for 8 pm had to wait 20 min only for them to tell us it would be another 20 for the dining room so we opted to eat at a table near the bar. It was loud but nice our waiter was quick and knew his info. Food was OK maybe im bias because i live in new york andhave had the best italian food but to be honest the spaghetti with meatballs was terrible, pasta was super hard and the meatball was gross ... appetizers were just ok nothing special. Honestly wouldnt go back I expected much better.

The food was overall terrific and the service very friendly. Two items that were misrepresented:
1. Morel Tagliatelle did not have Morels but another mushroom (that's the only reason we got them). They initially insisted it was Morels, but finally acquiesced after the group insisted they double check.
2. For the truffle risotto, they indicated 5g of Australian truffle but it appeared as though only 2g were shaved. The restaurant should really measure it table-side (as most Italian restaurants do, given the price tag associated with this), as the guy serving the truffles under-performed. He should be ashamed of himself, given that this is a signature item of an Italian restaurant.

Besides the above, it is a great restaurant.

Absolutely love RPM Italian. It is a must go to restaurant. Beautiful inside and the food was wonderful. Love that you can order small plates and make meal from those or order the larger portion entrée. Loved the bruschetta with the Alaskan crab meat. Was so good I could have made a meal on that. The eggplant parm was also tasty and good size portion. Can't wait to go back!!!!

The food was amazing! Only negative was it was a bit crowded with tables which made it difficult to leave making us have to dodge guests and wait staff to get out. Regardless I will be back!

Server was very professional, yet friendly. Her familiarity with the menu was helpful since we found descriptions of the menu items were limited. Our group found the menu limiting and it was hard to find things that appealed to us.

My husband and I came here for our 1 year anniversary. Our server was outstanding and he helped us select a delicious bottle of Italian wine within our price range. The cocktails were great, and of course the food was too! The lobster ravioli had tons of lobster meat in it— the best I ever had! We also loved the crab bruschetta and the octopus. Basically, the seafood dishes were my favorite.

Now we’ve been to both RPM Steak and RPM Italian. My husband and I liked RPM Steak better, but we would definitely go back to both.

Love the family style options, a concept not often seen in the USA. The quality is bar none. It can be pricey, however, you will get the return on your investment.

RPM is one of my favorite places to dine in the city. The food and atmosphere are amazing and the staff is always above and beyond. Most items are reasonably priced. Pasta dishes are a little small on their portions for the price and the three scallops for 32$ was a little much but typically that seems the average in comparison to other places. Overall it’s a 4.9/5 Stars. Can’t wait to return in the future, my colleagues were equally impressed for their first time!

From the very beginning there was a “miscommunication.” We checked in and were told twice that we would be serviced soon. After 20 min, we were told or table would be reach. After 30 min, and approaching the host, we were informed that there was a miscommunication and we were not checked in despite having a reservation. Why someone didn’t approach and at the very least apologize, not sure. It makes sense to at the very least offer a glass of water as we sat there patiently for 30 min. We were finally sat and so, we asked to speak to a manager. We informed the manager of the mishap and it was as if it didn’t matter, as if we didn’t matter. RPM was one of my favorite restaurants, but after this evening there is a bitter taste left behind. The manager stated that our “server would take care of us.” That didn’t happen. Not one item was comp or even offered. Again, customer service to me would’ve been to offer a beverage or desert as a thank you, as an apology. Wish we would’ve chosen another Rivernorth restaurant.

While the food was decent, we were seated at a table in the noisy bar. The food was enjoyed but the meals were overpriced. The cheapest bottle of Chardonnay was $90 and our bill for 2 people was $170. Be ready to pay top dollar for an average experience.

The food at RPM is absolutely incredible! We were extremely happy with the meal and with our server. The hostess stand, however, was very rude. The hostesses make you feel like you’re not important enough to eat there. We waited for 20 mins over our reservation time.
