Meets expectations at a price

Café Cortina serves excellent food, but prices rival those found in the most expensive restaurants. The ambience is also top rate.

We came on a week day. The pricing is high, wait time for food is very slow. Food was ok but some was under-whelming. You can get better Italian at Macaroni Grill and Olive Garden at a third of the price. Not a good value or experience for the money.

Very romantic and exceptional service. You feel like a star when you dine here. The food was outstanding and loved every bite of my steak.

We were timely greeted .... then again it was 5:25 p.m. and got our initial food, drinks, etc timely. Then the main meal arrived and the slow down began. Now to the ending - multiple request for coffee, dessert took near thirty minutes to be realized. Then the request for the billing took equally at long. For a place where... More

Celebrated a family birthday and chose this restaurant because of its lovely outdoor seating area. But it rained, so inside. Food was excellent although I am not a fan of Italian food.Service equally good. But I thought prices were unusually high.

I have eaten business lunches and romantic dinners at Cafe Cortina for over 35 years now, from time to time. Every meal has been outstanding and the one that my wife and I had for my birthday last week was no exception. I had salmon and she ended up with ravioli (after ordering spinach lasagna by mistake). We had a... More

We love Cafe Cortina, and going here is always a pleasure. We were married here and had our reception so we try and visit every year on our anniversary. It's a great atmosphere and the food is always amazing.

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.
