If you can make a reservation first do so. We didn't have a reservation and had to wait 15 minutes before we were seated even though there were 7 open tables. The food was good, service was a little slow. Decent price.

We're becoming regulars at the Bent Noodle - it is consistently very good to excellent, the staff are professional and well-trained, and even when busy, the noise level is fine. Our server allowed us to set the timing of every aspect of our meal, which we greatly appreciate. When dining out we prefer to enjoy the experience over a two-hour period, and the Bent Noodle is just right for that.

First time there, thought with 4 stars rating it would be outstanding...OMG! Terrible!! Celebrated my mother's 85th birthday and it was horrendous. Made online res with open table for 11:30 am, got there on time, yet needed to wait to be seated. Several tables already occupied, however our party of 5 got squeezed in to a booth at the front door, yeesh! Service sucked, just 1 waitress took forever to receive beverage orders, worst off, our food order took over 30 mins while others (working men in suits) got served. Food served tepid, no taste whatsoever, lack flavor, unappealing to look at all in all , Chicken marsala: watered down taste; American style burger: should've been on brioche, instead prepared between oversized sandwich bread; Shrimp Aglio e olio: oily, no flavor yuck; Baked Ziti with meatballs: Plain sauce tossed with pasta, bland! Tried the limoncello...Horribly sweet, looked liked the color of pinesol and scented like air freshner. Definitely a lousy first time experience! Will not return and will advise friends on disgusting day :(((((((((((((

Service wasn't up to their usual and they were not overloaded. I'll give them one strike since overall for decades they've been good and we keep going back. This is their 2nd strike in a year, but I'll give them 3. All establishments can have a bad night now and then.

Our server was not very attentive. We were there for over 2 hours. She did not offer me an additional beer. She did not refill our waters, we had to go find her to order our dessert! Needless to say, we have had much better service in previous visits! If you like tiramisu, order it in! The size is much larger than the Togo version! Also the chocolate tower cake, order it in to get the biggest slice!! Then get boxes if you prefer to take them home.

We were seated on time at 645 that is what our reservation time I really like that when we dine out.. The SERVICE WAS GREAT we got everything we wanted in a timely friendly manner. They have a nice
wine list and some good beers to select from,and the beer is cold I like that and the fresh hot bread.
Our dinners were very good great food, we will be going back often. their prices are more then fair.

this was the worst we ever experienced at this restaurant. The food was less than mediocre at best. The calamari was drenched in lemon and not edible, the best part of the meal was the bread. Very disappointing for mothers day meal!!
