We had dinner this evening because of its superb ratings. Unfortunately, we do not share the euphoria about the food.

We always sit at the chef counter and have become friendly with several of the cooks and wait staff. Food is delish and service top notch. The show at peak dining hours is always entertaining!

We stayed at the Monaco Hotel so we had to try Panzano's. Great service and interesting food selctions.This happened to be the night before the big Super Bowl game so we were looking for something special and Panzano's proved to be the right choice. This was our first time and now it will not be the last.

We stopped in with a group of 4 for my birthday, and were pleased with food, drinks and service (as usual). I hadn't visited in a number of years and was pleased to find that the quality of Panzano's has not changed. We ordered a number of items (scallops, lamb ragu, eggplant, etc) and were comfortably impressed by all. Nothing... More

The food and the service were both excellent. I would only say that it is a bit expensive in my point of view, but i would go back again to enjoy the food.

We've been to Panzano multiple times, and have always had a delectable experience. This is quality, crafted food with fresh ingredients and enough creativity to make it an adventure. Great seasonal cocktails, as well! It can get a bit pricey, so here's the secret: their happy hour in the bar is the same gourmet quality at a stunningly good price!... More
