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

Rolling up to Neighbors, you see the "Immediate Seating" sign. We went in, the greeter says "How many", 2, "Do you have a reservation?" No, "There will be a 45 minute wait." So much for immediate seating. While waiting we sat at the bar, two people left for their seat so we slid in. The bartender took the empty glasses... More

We were there to celebrate a family members birthday and were delighted in every way. The service was outstanding: attentive but not obtrusive. Not easy for a group of about 15. Everyone raved about their food. The salad was fresh and interesting, the bread excellent, and the pasta dishes exceptional. The staff had a special chair for the birthday "guy",... More

For a nice atmosphere and some quality food this is a nice place to go. It strives to be a higher quality restaurant but misses in most areas. The food is good but some dishes are hit or miss. The atmosphere is nice but cheaply done. The service is alright but can be slow and inexperienced. If you're looking for... More
