Great Bar Menu in Delaware County,Reasonable, attentive service at the bar. – This place is now called The Newtown Grill. I understand Alberto is not longer involved with this restaurant.
We had a good dinner on the day before Valentine's Day. We ate at the bar. The Bar Menu is very nice and very reasonable. They have a funny looking slicer that cuts the proschiutto .Nice atmosphere with good piped-in music. My girlfirend tried the Bruscettas and I had the Rib-Eye steak. We were very pleased. I will go back. The cook at the slicer ,behind the bar, is a funny guy. A nice crowd mix at the bar,I will guess an age range between 30 and 55 . A good experience and ,most of all, a very reasonable tab.
We were there when it was Alberto's, now is much better and less expensive.Bravo!
Delicious, fun restaurant, very good italian food – The pasta that i taste in this restaurant is the best anywhere.
The BYOB on Sunday is a plus in this already much reasonable restaurant ,than Alberto. We were really surprise by the quality of the excellent slider /burgers at the bar .The waiter was very friendly too.We will go back soon .
best in delaware county.fantastic bar .superior in every category – We ate there several times,and we never had a bad meal.The new management is definitely more relaxed than Alberto`s old grumpy hostess. Friendly bartender ,good price on drinks and a new affordable menu in the dining room,my steak was better than any other steakhouse including the city.
the best new affordable restaurant anywhere – Excellent food overall,we went last night for Valentine dinner and the place was packed in every way .The parking valet (it`s free,tip only , nice touch)was very friendly and prompt,the bar was really hopping with happy customers.We were seated in less then 10 minutes,our reservations was @ 7.30,and we had one of the best meal in a long time.I had the Lobster ravioli,very good ,and my husband the Rib eye steak ,both very Tasty!!
the only draw back was the we could not find a seat @ bar ,after we finished our lovely meal .
Definitely will be back and bring my Children's.
Worst service ever – I ate there last night for Valentines Day and the food was really good. Unfortunately the service was terrible. I expect slowness for Valentines Day but this was bad. We were seated quickly but after half an hour, not a single person had spoken to us about drink orders or anything. Finally they take our drink and food orders after sitting there 40 minutes. The food takes over an hour to come after numerous questions and the wine came after the food. The waitstaff never came to us to offer consolation, we always had to seek them out. This was happening all over the dining room I was in. For as expensive as our food was I expect to have a much better experience. Even for Valentines Day this level of incompetent service is unacceptable. Avoid this restaurant!
Disapointed!!! – We chose to go to The Newtown Grill to try something new and I will never go back again.
The only positive thing that could be said about this restaurant is that the food was not horrible. But that does not nearly make up for all of the negatives considering there are plenty of other restaurants in the area with better food and a better atmosphere.
The waiter was not friendly.
They brought out the wrong appetizer.
They forgot the dinner salad.
We ordered calamari and mussels for appietizers and were told they would give us family style (there were 6 of us). My logical assumption would be that meant a larger portion for a higher price. I was in shock when our bill was calamari 3 @ 7.95= 23.85 and mussels 3@ 6..95=20.85, especially since the portion was that of a single appetizer at any other restuarant.
We also ordered tiramisu to take home with us. I looked in the box when I got home (which was a 10 min drive) and was disgusted. It looked like vanilla pudding swirled with chocolate with a strawberry on top. Since when do you put a strawberry on Tiramisu.
I would absolutley recomend going to Fellini's, Tratoria Guiseppe, Giampino's, Maggiano's or Vinny T's over this dump!!!
Customer Service is slow, unfocused and unpolished! – I have been to this restaurant before & had a good experience however the opposite was true last week. We were greeted at the door & seated promptly. It was down hill from there. The waitresses were rather gruff -- more suitable for a chain restaurant. We ordered 3 bottles of wine before they finally had one in supply. Their reason was they were busy the night before. Each time we waited 10 - 15 minutes. Famished, we finally ordered our meals. An hour and a half into our experience, our food arrived. Less than one minute later the waitress arrived to check on our meals. Almost immediately thereafter, one guest found he was served pork instead of the lamb he had ordered. He decided to eat it to avoid another hour late but we attempted to get our waitress and it took another 10 minutes to get someone. We flagged someone and sent them for our waitress & they immediately told her (across the room that we needed her). She then walked into the kitchen instead of coming over to us. She only emerged when she saw we had asked for the manager. We were all more than 1/2 way through our meals.
You'll love this, the waitress said, "I checked with you, why didn't you tell me then that you had the wrong meal?". Yes, it was our fault!
I believe this restaurant may have just changes hands from Alberto's Italian Steak House to Newtown Grill. I would bet that they will not stay in business for very long.
Overbooking, waiters that write in 20% tips on your slip – This restaurant blew it for me by overbooking on Mother's Day such that people with reservations a week in advance had to wait 1/2 hr. to be seated (guess they figured on such a day they could get away with it). It was a buffet brunch, with standard items. The coffee was watered down. Then the server HAD THE AUDACITY to WRITE IN HIS 20% TIP ON MY CREDIT CARD SLIP HIMSELF! It's a buffet, what did he do for us except pour weak coffee? This is why I'll never go there again or recommend it to anyone.
Best in Delaware County!!!! – I have been to Albertos for many occasions from a romantic dinner for two in the wine cellar to a banquet held for 50. Each experierence has been better then the previous. The food is excellent!!!!! The location is perfect. The dining rooms are beautiful and the service was impeccable EVERY TIME! They will make you anything you want if it is within the realm of possibility. Lastly, the price was right too. You don't pay for a dinner and leave hungry there the portions are more than generous and that goes for the martinis as well. I suggest you go dinner and for sunday brunch and try the wine they produce themselves.
Every meal has been fantastic – We eat at Albertos quite often and have never had a bad meal. The steak is done with a prefect seasoning and almost melts in your mouth. The pasta's have been equally enjoyable.
Service has been efficient and prompt. great bartending staff.
