Amazing steak

Recently ate here with business colleagues and had the 22oz bone in ribeye Kobe beef aged 57 days. Wow! Probably one of the best steaks I have ever had! A little charred on outside but the flavor was incredible. Quite expensive but when shared with someone else it was worth it. Service was not as... read more

Cafe Cortina is a great destination for an intimate dinner. The dining room is cozy and warm, thanks to the fireplace, and the wait staff is very attentive. The food is a bit pricy but well worth it.

So you think you are a sophisticated, fine diner? Come here. Cafe Cortina is a step, or several, above. Without being pretentious or phony. This is the real deal. Forget the traditional upscale Italian restaurants. Oh, this place will probably do any classic Italian dish you ask for whether it's on the menu or not. But the dishes are beyond... More

For a special occasion I dined last Friday night at Cafe Cortina which I not been to in a long time. I think the service and quality of food is still at the outstanding high level I remember. I recommend this restaurant without any reservation whatsoever.

Our party of 25 had the pollo. This is the best your top chef can come up with? Are you kidding me? !!! shame on you! You need to re do the menu, maybe get chef Ramsey,to train your best prospects. real mediocre,over salted mini portions. Marco had way better fresh creative meals. That is why a chef travels to...

Have always looked forward to a dinner at Cafe Cortina. The ambiance is wonderful, in the past the service was excellent and the food is marvelous…except last night they disappointed the 9 of us terribly. A reservation at 7:15 was secured, a large round table was given, our orders taken by 7:45 and dinner served at 9pm. Several diners sent... More

Very expensive, but excellent, classic yet innovative food in a quiet, pleasant atmosphere. Menu changes regularly. We bring our own wine for a corkage fee of $40. Service has never been a problem for us. Perfect for a special occasion, most recently our 32nd wedding anniversary, but a worthwhile treat anytime.

I've dined here twice and don't know if I'll return. The service is excellent - attentive but not officious. Everyone from the waiters to the bus boys speak just enough Italian to show that this restaurant wants to provide an Italian experience. The atmosphere is pretty, charming, enjoyable. The central gas fireplace is lit even in summer, to add beauty... More
