Celebrating a late Valentine's Day. We have been here before and they are very attentive from the moment you check in. We had a great server but a while into the dinner he got busy with other tables and service got a little bumpy but still good. Rack of lamp, scalloped potatoes, fried calamari all very good. Not our best meal here but perhaps we ordered the wrong things. We dined in the atrium and so very spectacular with all the little lights and the night sky!

We were in town for a conference but came a day earlier to celebrate a birthday. Both of us had been to the Sardine Factory many years ago and returned for this special occasion. We were not disappointed. It was a perfect evening!

While there was a mix up in the kitchen with our order and it took and extremely long time to get our meal, all was well in the end. Food was delicious, wine was fabulous and service was good

Completely blown away... the steak was phenomenal.. the service was impeccable.. the ambience was amazing and to meet the proprietor was simply a pleasant encounter. I'm certainly looking forward to coming back to the sardine factory. Oh by the way our server named Aaron made it an amazing experience.
