Everything was great, the servers were good and were very personable. I will say I'm a dessert person and always look at dessert and dinner to decide:)
The buckle dessert was not very good, not sweet enough, warm and the cake? on the bottom was bland.
When I pay 8.00 for a dessert I expect more.

Thanks,
Sherri

I treated my sisters to lunch. We each had something different and we all very much enjoyed our meal. We shared dessert and it was fantastic. This is my favorite place to take people. I have never experienced a problem and everyone I have taken there say it has become their favorite place. I am so happy it us in my neighborhood.

We had the beet salad and the special of the day which was grouper and it was perfectly prepared. It was just the right amount of fish and had just the right type of sauce and condiments.

We were there for first time on our anniversary and we had a great table near the front. We were greeted with a happy anniversary to start the evening. The service was attentive but not intrusive and the food was tremendous! It’s been right in our neighborhood and now we have a new favorite spot! Well done!

Great place, We dine there at least twice a month. Celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary there last Saturday night. We've eaten everything on the menu, All good and fairly priced.
Ask for a table up front so you can watch the dispatcher prep the plates before they are delivered. Gives you an appreciation for the depth of their menu and the quality of their service.

Food is good, fresh, and can accommodate personal substitutions. Portions are adequate. Would be better to have some "common" salad selections vs "exotics". Biggest problem is that they are so busy, we weren't seated until 40 minutes after out reservation. This also explains the noise level (hard to have a conversion without shouting and repeating!)

Best short ribs anywhere. My friend's vodka gimlet tasted like another! Our waiter, Fritz, truly is the best in the business! We drove 2 hours to go to dinner. And it was totally worth it. Always a satisfying, delicious and fun experience.

Rusconi's always provides a relaxing evening with wonderful (and pretty) food and friendly, attentive servers (Thank you, Kevin). If you want elegant meals with a small neighborhood restaurant feel, this is the place! The grouper and risotto were spot on perfection. My husband is a fan of the duck breast.

What a great meal. the food is fantastic. The cheese board and beet salad are great. Definitely order the cheese board to share. The salmon with the blueberry sauce is out of this world. Our next table diners were eating the duck, so next time back, that's what we're going to try.

Hands down the best dinner I have had in months!
My wife had the salmon cooked medium rare, at our waiter, Chris, suggestion. My wife said it was the best Salmon she has ever had! (This is a woman that eats salmon once a week. ) I had the beef medallions and they are wonderful. The sauce, the meat is spot on, great presentation with both plates. Both were served on hot plates so taking your time to enjoy the meal was further insured. The chocolate bread pudding, just get one with the homemade ice cream. It's the perfect finish to a perfect meal. Well done Rusconi, we had two meals a month apart and both outstanding.
