Just Fair

My husband and I took our 9 year old granddaughter and visiting son here for lunch because we wanted a high quality, nice atmosphere lunch. It was just okay. Nobody raved about their lunch. Everyone got something different and everyone said the same thing - just okay. We've all had way better other... read more

I came here initially when it first opened. I remember asking the server what she recommended. Since it was a "steak house", I expected steak as a suggestion. Nope, she recommended the macaroni and cheese. That should have tipped me off. We went back recently. Our server was nice enough and said he used to be the bartender but no... More

We arrived early at 7pm -somehow my spouse was able to get a reservation just for the two of us. NYE can be a real crapshoot as we well know having made this a yearly tradition dining at local restaurants. We were promptly seated and a very polite waiter appeared. Husband had the roasted pan-seared duck; I chose less exotic... More

Went there for a holiday party. Had it upstairs in the lounge/pool table area so it would be a more relaxed atmosphere. 1 waitress for over 150 people so it took 1/2 hour or more to get a drink. Some of us decided to directly to the bar. To say that the bartender was in a crappy mood was an... More

My dining companions were satisfied with their dishes but my entree was inedible and I am doing the reviewing, thus the score. My strawberry walnut salad was good but entree was very poorly prepared. I ordered swordfish caprese with asparagus risotto. I order fish often and I do believe this was the worst piece of fish I have had since... More

Enjoyed my dinner here last night. Moderately crowded. Service was fine. Enjoyed a caprese salad and the soup of the day... a cream of mushroom that was amazing... not loaded with cream but very light. The pork chop was excellent as usual.

Good quality and outstanding as always. Had the Ceasar prior and then then Cajun Scallops and Rissoto. Service was a bit abrupt but will overlook. Will go again.

Incontro is in an interesting old mill building just off I-495 in Franklin (actually it's around the corner towards BJ's Wholesale Club, but it's not far from the highway. It looks inviting, until you drive up an see that it's valet parking only. This is a bit pretentious for a suburban restaurant with an ample parking lot ... not that... More

Did not want to go here because of 2 previous bad experiences. Had to attend Christmas party which was upstairs in the lounge. As usual, food was awful, drinks overpriced, and staff act like your are a nuisance to provide service to. I witnessed a manager insult a bar patron for eating a cube of cheese from the wrong party... More
