The staff at Wise Guys is professional and very friendly. The decor lovely, new and very relaxing! Food presentation very good, food very good. It's nice to dine where extras are considered...fresh silverware, attentive and knowledgeable wait staff, and a knowledge of preparation and presentation. It's a treat to know fine dining can still be found.

Wise Guys has always been a constant when looking for a good meal and service. This was our first time visiting since their remodel so we really were looking forward to it. We were greeted warmly and shown our table.
Our server took our order as we started with an appetizer prior to our main order
We had to ask twice for bread to be served and it came during the latter stages of eating our main course.
My wife’s meal came out cold and had to go back. This seemed to put our server off a bit. It took a long time to get a second glass of wine. During the entire course of the evening, the manager never came by to speak to us. They did visit the tables on either side of us (more than once). One of the tables beside us, the server did ask them if they would like any bread after they had completed their meal. The other table, they kept bringing them bread, without them asking for more.
For what was once a great restaurant, they are now just simply mediocre and I can’t honestly say if I will come back.

Disappointing. We’ve dined here before (several years ago) and it was one of our favorite places on the island for a nicer meal. This visit was extremely disappointing. The salads and french onion soup were delicious but our meat was inedible (pork chop and flat iron steak). The steak had an “off” flavor and the pork chop was a terrible fatty consistency and seems to be undercooked. Sadly, a waste of $150.

Sat down and waited over one hour. After asking for service twice we were rudely acknowledged then left as we never received drink or food.

We had a wonderful, and absolutely deeeelicious time at Wise Guys last night! Colin was our “Sever Extraordinaire”, and did a fantastic job taking care of us. He truly is an asset to the WG Team. Oh! And thank you for the complimentary birthday dessert for my cousin. We will definitely be back in May when we are on HHI!!!

Our first visit, after remodel. Our checking was early from our reservations, Aldo fast & easy. The menu selections were surprisingly extensive. The food was good. The service lacked what it should, because the placed was packed with guests.

We will return again, hoping NOT to sit in the large dining room, and prefer the more intimate seating offered in the bar area.

Remodel is terrific and comfortable. Service is excellent as usual. Tried a new menu item, Prime Rib, which was a great addition. Can't wait to try the Rotisserie Duck. The French Onion soup is even better than before the reno.

Wise Guys is back open after a recent renovation (the bar is front and center now, much bigger than before). The dining area was full but we were able to talk and hear each other while speaking in normal conversational levels. Drinks, appetizers, wine, dinner and dessert were all very good. It made for a great evening to reconnect with out of town friends we hadn't seen since pre-covid.

We’ve been coming to Wise Guys for years and always enjoyed it. The recent renovations have just enhanced our experience and made our visit that more pleasurable.

Last night, the ambiance, food quality, and service were all outstanding. Our server (Jessica) was an absolute delight, Wise Guys should be proud to call her associate because she represents your restaurant exceptionally well.

Thank you for another wonderful dining experience.

Been a few years… but the carpaccio was missed.

The tartar was under seasoned, steak needed salt… but the saltimbuca and service was good.

Probably won’t return.
