Not the best experience this go round. Typically is above average so will not stop me from trying again. Food this time came out lukewarm, even cold. Even when sent back-still came back lukewarm. Disappointing as was my mom's first time there.

We have dined frequently at Timpano’s, and our Mother’s visit was for brunch. The make your own Bloody Mary bar was a fun experience with bacon, a variety of olives, jalapeños and a number of spices to choose from. Brunch salads and entrees were terrific and the service made for a terrific meal. We’ll return soon for another enjoyable experience.

Went out with another couple for the first time to Timpano’s. We loved our meals. I had the roasted mussels as an appetizer. They were plentiful and delicious. My dinner was short rib with risotto. THE BEST. We really can’t wait to return.

The service was LACKING at best. We had to ask 3x for water & once we paid the check we never saw our server again. We had to ask 2x for Parmesan cheese and had to ask for cracked pepper for all 3 salads ordered. We had to ask for bread and when the oil came the bottom of the plate was covered with oil and so was our paper on top of the cloth. When it was time for dessert, we asked for new paper to be put down as we were celebrating a birthday. The answer was no but a black skin was brought to cover up the oil. The server never asked if we were members of the awards program—we are & the check got closed out before the membership info was given as I had to go find our server to give it. So now we have to go online in 48 hrs to see if the points posted. LACKING AT BEST!

The server was tipped cash at 21% in cash but did not deserve it.

It is also in a very nice location.

We were there for Easter Sunday...a party of 7...one infant and one toddler. We have dined here many times and this is the first time we were somewhat disappointed. All the adults ordered our favorite, the Filet Benedict and they were just not up to par. There was not much sauce on them and we all agreed it was just not good as usual. With that said, we still had an enjoyable time together.

Waitress was awesome. Hostess was fine. Got the crispy chicken on arugula. Salad was excellent, but chicken was a bit dry & too flat. Roasted mussels & calamari apps were great & so was the chocolate chip cast iron cookie. Entertainer/musician was very talented but a little too loud to not scream over while trying to chat. Great people watching & atmosphere.

Music was quite loud so requested to sit outside. Service took quite a while to get anything.. the drinks, appetizer, food etc. The value was fine except for the side dish. Brussel sprouts were delicious but $10? They are listed as a side dish but that's more an appetizer price. But overall just disappointed that the meal was about $100 and service was quite slow

Outstanding dinner! We sat outside which was lovely but many muscle cars revved by very loudly which was annoying at times. It didn’t however take away from the experience overall. The service is amazing, food terrific and pace was perfect. The menu is customizable because it’s all made to order so I tweaked one and ordered shrimp piccata and it was the best piccata sauce I’ve ever had. Everyone at the table loved their entrees. The bread is so fresh, salads are crisp and fresh, and the mussels are a must! I can’t wait to go back. Ask for Michelle- she’s such a terrific server!!
