Average food. Poor service.

We were a party of four. Waitress was pleasant and we ordered drinks, appetizer. Three of us ordered salads and we all had an entree. Salads never came. Dinner arrived and I asked where salads were. Waitress said she "thought someone else must have brought them". Offered to go get them but we... read more

Ordered the manicotti and they came back 10 minutes later and said that they can't find it anywhere. They asked if I want ravioli instead and I said yes. It is not fresh and tasted like something out of a box with grocery store sauce. My wife had the haddock that was dry and smelly, no reason not to have... More

Four of us met at Anjon's for a post-holiday lunch. We were seated right away and our server was a very nice young man who checked in with us frequently. He made sure the coffee cups and water glasses were filled at all times. I had the eggplant parm sub. The bread was fresh and the eggplant was tasty but... More

Terrible service! Not surprised with the owners attitude! I held a Christmas party for 25 people and the lasagna was so awful we couldn't even serve it! And you should know they don't make lasagna with sauce. Very disappointed I will never attend again!

We went to Anjon's tonight and it was unbelievable!!! The antipasto was the best I've ever had. The Italian dressing needs to be bottled! I actually would drink the dressing! The garlic bread, linguini marinara and the tiramisu were all outstanding! This place is definitely the best Italian restaurant around! What a great time and experience!

Went with family, so I saw several of the dishes besides my own. I ordered a chicken caesar. I didn't much care for how they made it, kind of strange with peppers and mushrooms and the taste wasn't quite right in my mind. Everything was very overpriced, especially the pasta dishes. I know pasta is the cheapest thing for a... More

My wife wanted a pizza so...hey I pulled right in.Well, no pizza but an array of interesting looking menu items. I went with the Lobster Scampi and the Prawn Scampi. They were both good, but I thought the meals a bit pricey for what we got. 5 prawns and about 4 or 5 oz of lobster meat on a bed... More
