My boyfriend and I had been here a couple of times before I decided to take him for his birthday. The first time we had a female waitress and she was great. The 2nd time we had Armondo. I found him to be un-interested in us as customers that first time, like he couldn't wait to get off duty. This... More

We chose this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews, and were horribly disappointed with the food and service. The only thing this restaurant had going for it was the ambiance. We arrived approximately 10 minutes before our reservation. We were seated by the hostess promptly, and the waitress came over to take a drink order. We initially ordered waters, and waited... More

Menu is extensive, including drinks, reasonably priced. Portobello mushroom appetizer could be a meal, excellent. Calamari was perfect, melting in your mouth not gummy. Seafood casserole had generous amounts of haddock, shrimp & scallops. This will not be on next season's menu we were told but should. Atmosphere was nice & wait staff very pleasant. Will definitely return & will... More

We have dined at the Buono Bistro several times now and I would keep coming back. The servers are excellent, your meal begins with a basket of hot homemade rosemary bread sticks, delicious. the chicken Margarita had a wonderful dried apricot grand mariner sauce, which was sweet but not too sweet. My husband had the combo, "Land and sea" he... More

Wonderful server Armando. Food very good and service great. Highly recommend! Restaurant owners should always know that your wait staff represents you and is 50% of the dining experience! 2 couples and had a great evening.

We called to make a reservation on Sunday 6/15 for two at 6:30pm. The hostess was more than willing to put us in, UNTIL we mentioned we had a Groupon, then she said “oh, I have to check with my manager”. After placing us on hold, she came back and said “sorry, we can’t fit you in because it is... More

The restaurant is in a commercial zone, in a nondescript building, but the inside is warm and welcoming. The wait staff are excellent. They start you off with nice warm bread, crispy on the outside and nice moist innards. As noted by another reviewer, the wine pour is generous which was much appreciated. The Caesar salad was average. I had... More
