Since we both like Italian we gave it a try. The initial impression was, "oops!" since we entered into what looked like just a bar. Once inside we saw the... More

I went to this restaurant sometime ago on the advice of locals that it was very good and upscale. We had dinner there and paid more than the average for the area and were disappointed. The atmosphere reminded us gangster days and the food was "so-so"

The food was excellent I had Veal Marsala nice and tender with great flavor. My friends were happy with their meals also. The only negative were the clam appetizers. To much filler. It... More

This was one of those times that the other reviews let me down. I was so surprised this place got such great reviews, I guess maybe for the area it's the best you are going to get but my husband and I were disappointed in our dinner. Then again, I didn't have steak as seemed popular with other reviewers. I... More

It had been many years since I visited the Ovalon for lunch. We went with friends for an early dinner and it was a great choice. The seafood salad I had was loaded with shrimp and lump crab on a bed of assorted greens and black olives. I chose the house dressing which was a balsamic vinaigrette that was superb.... More
