The restaurant was packed which always tell me not all these people can be wrong, it must be good and it was fun. Super appreciate the waiter, he was a big help and did a great job and I can't remember his name. I would go back and try something different.

We had a friend in town and took them to Bent Noodle for dinner. Service was great as always and the food was perfect. Our guest ordered a salad with Salmon and the waiter came to tell that the salmon got overcooked and that they were preparing a new dish for them. This shows the care the staff takes to make sure each dinner is prepared correctly and making sure each diner has a great food experience.

The only bad thing was the chicken on the pizza. Twice I had Grissel or bone. Had to spit it out. 🙁
The salads we ordered were Great!! Waiter was fun and attentive!! I like the crowd that the Bent Noodle gets... older and not rude or rowdy. Prices are moderate, we didnt have to worry about wanting something and it being too pricey!

Everyone at the table commented how wonderful everything was. It is nice to come back to a place and have even a better experience than the time before, while most establishments are going the other direction.

Italian food is always very good and served in generous portions. The kitchen sent out our entrees prior to salads and our waiter Rob was very nice to immediately remove charges for salads from our ticket. Food at Bent Noodle is so tasty that I won’t let this one mistake deter me from returning. I have eaten here many times and every guest I introduce to Bent Noodle is very complimentary.

Ordered veal parmegean, Food arrived luke warm. and replaced, arrived hot. Pasta very underdone, difficult to chew. Originally requested veal not be deep fried, but pan sauteed. Waiter checked with cook and confirmed it would be done. When finally received veal was very thick, chewy like rubber bands, and inedible. My partner's chicken parm was burnt on both sides, also inedible. Waiter deducted costs of entrees and offered desert at no cost.
We will not be going back there!

Great Italian food....the 'basics' and more. Excellent service. I ordered the wrong thing ...my mistake and they did everything they could to fix that. Offered to box the incorrect order and bring me the one I meant to order. I didn't want them to do that ....and the incorrect one was great. They still brought me a small portion of the other. Way above and beyond.

Had reservations for 5:00 on Saturday the 9th of March. Restaurant was NOT busy at all. It was hard to get our servers attention. It took forever to be waited on. Our server seemed 'put out'. The food was average at best. We will never ever go there again.

I wasn’t really impressed by anything. The Fettuccine Alfredo was rather bland and didn’t have much flavor. The sausage and the garlic cheese bread were the best things there. Waited about 10-15 minutes for a drink refill. Was never asked if we wanted dessert. Wouldn’t go back, even with another Groupon.

The only drawback was that we were seated close to the exit door and got a blast of cold air everytime someone left. They should think about adding a wall or screen to block the cold. We left earlier than we planned because it became too uncomfortable.

This reservation was for Christmas Eve and when I called to add a guest they said I couldn't have a reservation because they were closing at 7pm that night. So I can't really give a review.

The Bent Noodle is usually one of our favorite restaurants. However, this visit was a disaster.
We waited 20 minutes before a server even brought us water. And then we had to keep asking for more, because they couldn’t get it right. The service continued to be slow. We waited 35 minutes before any bread was served and our order taken. The music was so loud we couldn’t converse.
It was my daughters birthday. As I stated on our reservation form. I requested a dessert, and obviously, staff hadn’t even looked at my request. We had no dessert, and went elsewhere for one.

To be fair. The restaurant does not have music every night. Usually it is cozy, and the service is excellent.
But, this visit was the wrong night to be, in the wrong place. The lack of service was unacceptable.

Food was very good. Our waiter (Alec) was absolutely terrific.

Two things kept me from giving the restaurant a higher score:

1) when we arrived, with an Open Table reservation, we asked the host for one of the three booths that were open. He gruffly said, “No, they are all reserved.” However, when we left, after eating our dinner, those three booths and one additional were all still unoccupied. Disappointing!

2)we ordered and were served a “Chianti Classico” from the menu. It’s was just “OK”; halfway through the bottle I looked more closely, and, while the label said “Chianti Classico”, there was no gallo nero, so it was a fake. This restaurant should be careful about this!
