We’ve been coming to Diane’s for years and find the food to be dependably good. Cocktails are well prepared, the staff is professional, and while the ambience is a bit bland, the restaurant does take Covid requirements seriously which we appreciate.

While the drinks and apps were very good and my guest's brinzino was excellent, my bouillabaisse arrived covered in a heavy sharp red sauce. Bouillabaisse NEVER is served with an Italian red sauce. Even the red sauce with Cioppino is light and airy. This sauce absolutely overwhelmed the flavors of the fish. Also bouillabaisse in my experience never contains lobster. The quarter lobster that was in the dish served only to justify the price. And the red sauce made cracking the claw an adventure in stain avoidence. All in all an unpleasant experience.

Wonderful meal. Small plates for the ladies and those of us who can’t eat as much as we once did. As with many restaurants currently they were under staff on Wednesday night but they handled it well. Everyone stepped up to the plate and gave 110%. When you dine at a place that is full, be grateful and forgiving. Everyone is entitled to get the best service possible. We love this place and will be back.

Amazing service, the food was divine and it was outside in the winter during the pandemic. Beautifully decorated and propane heaters under a tent. A great way to escape.

Wonderful NYE dinner & service! Our first time, and definitely not our last. We opted for the heated tent, nicely spaced out tables. A little too warm in there, but it was a mild night to begin with. One tent flap partially opened up to outside. Lovely selection on their New Year's prix fix menu. Everything was delicious--Loved the octopus app & the salmon with spinach & potato pancake was terrific. My husband's mushroom risotto app was decadent, and the duck also great. A lovely evening!

Respectful and compliant of all covid 19 protocols. Clean - crisp and low key atmosphere. Food was hot, delightful and tasty. We were not rushed - felt totally at ease. Tables were spaced appropriately. Great evening.

If you love duck, this is the best place to go for it! Of the 4 people at dinner, 3 of them had the duck as they remembered it being so good and it was delicious! The branzino was excellent as well, so light and the spinach was done perfectly, not heavily oiled as it is in other places. Nice bread basket and good drinks - more generous than some places.

We always enjoy Diane’s. The food is always very tasty. My seafood avocado salad was delicious! The atmosphere is comfortable, but I have to say that the service is always average at best.

As always the food was excellent; my lamb chops cooked exactly as I wished and salad lightly dressed as requested.
The one thing I'd say is that over the years the menu has hardly changed so I only tend to go when I'm in the mood for something I know is on the menu. Some new preparations, more choice of sides, etc,. could spruce things up.

Our meals and service were great, but ultimately we were disappointed. We booked an outdoor table on a relatively mild late fall evening because we wanted to eat in an open-air environment. Since our last visit, the side patio awning and propane heaters have been replaced with a 4-walled plastic tent with heat blown in. This set-up should not be described as outdoor dining and we were uncomfortable being seated in an enclosed space with other diners.

It was a great way to spend Thanksgiving. The food was delicious and the room was fairly quiet though all tables upstairs were full. The banana creme pie was so good as was the berry cobbler.

For a restaurant that is aligned with a bakery, I was suprised to find the dessert I had (pecan pie) of such poor quality. The crust was not light and much too thick. The filling was quite ordinary.

The restaurant was a bit noisy, but the noise level was acceptable.
The quality of the food was just fair, I had the pesto gnocchi, and although I am not a good chef, I can make better pesto sauce. My wife's pork was too dry. This is our second poor experience although previously well satisfied.

Went for an early dinner at 5:00 on Wednesday. Wife loves the small plate menu and they have Duck with true wild rice, my favorite. Then their own bakery desserts to die for. Next time I’ll have to order a small plate or be disciplined and take home half my duck. Service was delightful.
