We enjoyed our dinner and especially loved the cheese, wine and beer selection. We loved our waitress and were happy with her recommendations for the wine and cheese, she was very knowledgeable about the wide variety of cheese and cocktails.

My girlfriends pasta dish was fine but my Chicken Parmesan was the worst I have ever had, over cooked, dry as can be and no flavor. The chairs are also very uncomfortable.

Our waiter was great and kept refilling our water which we really appreciated. The salad was delcious but the quantity wasn’t enough unfortunately. When I got home I had to make more food bc I was still hungry. My friends all felt the same way about the amount of food that was served. Hope you will take our suggestion and follow through; otherwise, we probably won’t come back. We’ve heard the food is great but many people have said it’s not enough. Thank you!!

We enjoyed the food and our waitress was great. The drink list for wines, gins, bourbon, whiskey was extensive. The only thing was that it seemed really loud. We were sitting at a 2-person table. The next table was also a 2-person table. It felt like we were eavesdropping because the conversations were so close together. We will definitely go again but not the place if you want to have a private conversation.

My 2 friends and I had a lovely lunch. The service was excellent and the food outstanding. I thought the prices were a little high, especially for the artichoke starter, but it wasn't very far out of line with what I'd been expecting. My main difficulty was the noise-level--the music was turned up a bit too high. I think the volume did get turned down on our request, but I would have liked it still a little quieter, for the sake of conversation. Overall, though, a wonderful lunch!

We were hoping for better. The place looks nice and had decent ambiance. The server was working on this side of Teresa's instead of her normal side and we had some questions, and we think we actually got the wrong wine. It was pink but she said it looked like the golden color as the description says. It had the taste of a rose' but was supposed to be like a Pinot Grigio. She did offer to replace it, but we rarely complain and we drank it anyway. We went for the natural wines, but we weren't that impressed with the 3 we had. The food and ambiance aren't enough for us to go back, but it was worth a shot.

While our server was very pleasant we felt rushed and were disappointed that the “stout event” wasn’t much of an event. We had to ask about it. And she didn’t offer any suggestions or recommendations. The food was good but not fabulous. I wouldn’t be opposed to giving the place another try because I liked the atmosphere and their wine list was extensive.

Had high expectations and they were all met. Food was as good as the service and all the staff very pleasant. Only issue would be the chairs are not comfortable and constant adjusting. Replace them.

We had a nice meal. The food was fresh and very good. It's not a value meal though and if you are having wine with your meal there was only one chardonnay choice at $12 a glass. We did have excellent service.

Great cocktails & service but the food wasn’t very good. We got the salmon & the pasta with scallops and weren’t impressed with either. Probably should have gone with pizza like others around us.

We enjoyed family dinner on New Year's Eve. We were greeted warmly by both hosts, then shown to a table that worked great for our party of 4. The waitress greeted us promptly and was very friendly and informed. She had suggestions from the wine list for our dinner choices. All of the food was fantastic. From the mussels that they brought extra bread for us to enjoy the heavenly broth with to the "cowboy steak" that was cooked to perfection and had amazing flavor. We so enjoyed our evening at Teresa's Cafe and will most definitely go back. Highly recommend.

This was not up to the overall reviews in my view. It's really tables next ti a bar in a minimalistic setting. The food was OK, but uninspiring. So - good for casual bar-type fare not more than that.

Good assortment of appetizers, which is all we ordered! Pizza was really good...crisp crust and easily shared. Our party of 3 was there early so really can't comment on the noise level. Would like to try the other side for mussels.

We can always count of a great meal and dining experience when we eat at Teresa's Cafe, and again this time it is no different. I had the spaghetti squash this time around and it was fantastic! Very accommodating to our friend who is gluten free. Modified our appetizers and had gluten free pasta. There is a reason we keep returning.... solid dining experience!

I have dined at Teresa’s twice now, and it was even better tonight than the last time. I had the Penne Pescorino, and I cannot say enough about this dish. The seafood was prepared perfectly, with flavor like I haven’t had in awhile with a pasta-Seafood dish. We also had olive apps as well as the almonds (unbelievably good) and Gouda cheese. The entire dinner was very well received by my girlfriends and I. We can’t wait to go back!

Heard this place was the “go to” place for hard to find craft beer. Arrived early. Was seated near bar. No server came over initially. a staff member finally approached us and had the bar tender take our order for drinks. Nothing special available for craft beer this night, Too bad. My friend mentioned her salad was overdressed with balsamic vinegar - very sour. Otherwise, meals were okay.
