    Lovely interior. Extremely poor and slow service by our waiter. I had the sweet corn risotto and arugula melon salad. My friend had their mussles special. All were exceptionally bland. I would not come here again.

    The only reason the food did not get five stars was because of a comment from my dining partner that he thought his dinner (short ribs over a polenta I believe) was not as good as the last time he ordered it here, but we didn’t get into details. My salmon was great!

    This visit was to celebrate a birthday. From the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left, the amazing staff made our celebration special! The food and its presentation was impeccable as always. And the flavor - I had the mussels and I had no idea they could be THAT delicious! If you’ve been thinking about trying Rusconi’s, just go now! Your taste buds will thank you.

    Rusconi's American KitchenResponded 7 days agoI'm so sorry we overcooked your Filet. As always we would have been happy to cook you another Filet. Please let us know when you are with us so that we can fix it. We appreciate your loyalty and still a 5 star review. Thank you very much, Chef Michael

    Started with an ASIAN PEAR, BLUE CHEESE AND CANDIED PECAN SALAD. This was delectable. Also, had GASPACHIO. My spouse found this to be excellent. Mains were GRILLED TENDERLOIN MEDALIONS and BEEF SHORT RIBS. Both of these were delicious too. Accompanied the food with a SIMI ALEXANDER 2019 CAB SAV.

Chef Michael came over & spent some time with us, I watched him as he greeted so many guests & personally thanked the guests for coming in. I love Chef Michael's food! We will return!

    Everything at Rusconi’s runs like clockwork. Food is consistently well prepared and creative. Servers are friendly and very competent. Reception Is welcoming. The only disappointment for us is the fact that their once outstanding mussels in broth are no longer available. That dish is sorely missed!

    Rusconi's American KitchenResponded 7 days agoHI Mare, Thank you for your kind review and we hope to earn 5 stars on your next trip in. We have had Mussels with Chardonnay and smoked tomato broth the last few days as a feature. Because of supply issues we will only be running them as a nightly feature. I won't put them back on the menu until I'm confident we can get them at a high quality level all the time.

    we would have preferred a table of six to be seated at the back of the restaurant and not by the front door and bar. The ambiance was like having dinner in a bus stop. On a visit to the men's room i did notice six people sitting a booth/table. The receptionist to me when we arrived that where they had placed us was the only place for a table of six. Mind you, we have been loyal customers ever since the restaurant opened and I didn't appreciate the receptionist blowing smoke up my stack. Otherwise everything else was fantastic as usual.
