Go! – Had it been about a year ago I would have rated this places a 5 however since then the portions have been largely decreased and prices slightly increased at the same time. However ice been going since it opened. Of course every once in a while you'll get a new server or one who isn't good but overall the servers are good. The food is great. The complimentary bread w oil is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. I would highly recommend the marsala entrees and the mozzerells stick appetizer
Karen Oh Karen where for art thou Karen... and my Sangria... – 5/15/08
We were seated and things were off to a good start. We ordered our drinks (2 sodas and an Italian Sangria). Our sodas came out and Karen said the sangria would be out in a minute (as expected). She took our entree orders and put them in. Approximately 10 - 15 minutes pass and our entrees were ready (surprisingly very fast) but served by another person (Lasagna and Chicken Parmesan w/ Mash Potatoes). We were expecting our waitress Karen to come back to see how everything was. There was no sign of her on the dining floor for approximately 20 mins after the food was served. So there was no opportunity for me to ask for my drink. By the time she came around we were done w/ our meals. She must have realized she forgot the drink while she was getting the check. Gave me the drink then disappeared w/o the check. Finally our table was cleared by another server and the check was given to us by him instead.
Overall... the food was ok... nothing amazing... I would have blamed the service on short staff or crowded dining but it was a quiet night w/ plenty of staff. I was simply appalled by the service by our waitress. I would have complained to the manager themselves but he/she was nowhere in sight either.
I'm just very disappointed and was hoping for service and food just as good as their other establishments (I had a wonderful dining experience at the Bonefish Grill in Woodbridge, NJ). I hope this was an isolated incident and wanted to make others aware to watch out for Karen!
