I went to Neighbor's for the first time to celebrate a promotion for my brother-in-law and was disappointed in the quality of food for an up-scale Italian restaurant. I ordered a classic Italian dish expecting a subtle burst of classic Italian herbs; unfortunately, my dish was lacking in flavor as well as basic seasoning. The pasta, however, was cooked to...

The food is really good and I do like their menu and the atmosphere, but we quit going due to the lack of good service. The food is quite pricey, even on happy hour, and you would expect really good service in this establishment, but we have found that to be hit or miss (more miss than hit). We had... More

For Mankato and this area of Minnesota "Neighbors" is a very good restaurant. However, when compared to other dining venues that we frequent in our frequent travels it is average. The food was reasonably well prepared with the salads being excellent. Our server was inexperienced and 'in the weeds' due to an apparent lack of staff. You will get a... More

We usually go to Neighbor's for our Anniversary but tonight we went so our daughter could try their awesome food. We couldn't get enough of the salad and bread. Their salad dressing is homemade and my daughter wanted even more salad and our main course wasn't even on the table yet. My two ladies had the fettuccini alfredo with two... More

Went to Neighbors after looking on the net. They weren’t crowded but we needed to wait for a table due to limited staff. They did offer a free glass of wine (one of the three of us took them up due to limited offerings). Waiter was knowledgeable and fun. Appetizers left something to be desired. Bruschetta was probably the worst... More

Old time favorite of ours to eat at together or with friends. Menu selections are great. Has a nice homey feel with a good staff. Would recommend reservations at prime times. They do offer a free glass of wine if you have to wait for our setting.

Amazing food. Risotto balls are a must for an app. The pasta is amazing. Some say the food is overpriced but I think that you are getting what you pay for.

Neighbors has always been a favorite of mine for birthdays and anniversaries. Over time it has become higher priced with poorer service. Food has always been great, but seems to contain less and less of the ingredient you ordered that item to taste. Maybe it is the economy as I see this trend at other eating establishments. I recently was... More

Enjoyed a nice New York strip and shrimp carbonara. However, the pasta dish had no bacon and only 4 shrimp! We presented a 15 dollar coupon when we ordered our meal, and although the discount was marked on the check, it was not discounted from the amount due. The waiter-Tyler, explained that this was an order entry error, and not... More
