Our waitress, Nicole was outstanding. they also seated us in a booth in a quiet section of the restaurant as we had a couple of individuals with hearing issues.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday with a birthday coupon good for one entree free with the purchase of another entree. The service was great, the food came out quickly and tasted delicious. We will definitely be back.

Alec and staff were terrific. My friend and I asked for a slow, relaxing evening on a Wednesday and Alec gave us plenty of time to talk and catch up without pressure to order. He made sure to stop by to keep drinks filled and provide a smile. The food tasted great! A very enjoyable night!

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!

Food was good. Everyone enjoyed it. They were short staffed and our wait person was also acting as bartender so service was a bit slow. But he was hustling! My pasta dish and my son's pasta were luke warm but the rest of the dishes were hot. I'm guessing ours sat for a bit . They have some different dishes on the menu that you don't see at your typical Italian restaurant, Pot roast and the Pear appetizer. Both very good. Overall we enjoyed it. Worth a visit for sure

friendly, casual dining. We were looking to replace our favorite neighborhood restaurant and this fits the bill, even though its location is not really neighborhood for us. On Friday nights, we need to get there a bit early to be seated without a wait, but that's fine for us.
