We reserved after getting an email that Panevino was having a lobster night. There were 9 of us and we were given a room in the wine cellar, which was fantastic! Our server was outstanding and the food was perfect. Nice wine, great friends, great food--a perfect evening. Thanks, David Brennan and staff for a job well done.

First time here. Very nice décor and courteous greeting when seated. Food was excellent for all three of us- pastas and salmon, salads were really good with fresh ingredients, and deserts to die for. Warm chocolate bread pudding with bananas foster sauce (yummy). Great value in the $19.95 three course meal. Now the service is a different story which I... More

Service was poor poor poor. Came here in Father's Day. Not crowded at all. Waitress missing between courses, at end of meal, wondered how she'd do if it was busy. Sad as food is good. But not sure I'd come back.

I have been to Panevino before & always enjoyed the food, service, etc. However, on Mother's Day there were 10 people in our party & we were all disappointed with the food & the service. We arrived at 4 & did not leave until 3 hours later. The service was terrible, no bread no condiments on the table & one... More

Love the food at Panevino's, as we have been there a few times in the last few months. The previous two times (both Friday nights), we had great food, but so-so service. Tonight (Thursday and not crowded), the four of us did have delicious meals as well as very good service. Our waitress was Danielle, who made it a wonderful... More

From the moment that we stepped through the door things went badly. The host had given away our table, even though we arrived on time and showed him our e-mail reservation. He then proceeded to argue with us about it. Strike 1! We then had to wait for a table another 20 minutes. Strike 2! After we got to our... More

I wasn't too impressed. I was here on a date night with my husband. We had a small issue with our appetizer and addressed the issue with the server and he didn't seem to believe us or care to help us with our issue. Our total time waiting for our food was about an hour and a half.

We have visited this place several times since it has been open. Our greeter, waiter/ waitress have all contributed to awesome meals. I feel catered to from the time we arrive until we order dessert. We have enjoyed 1\2 price bar menu, dinner & movie and limited menu nights. We have great service and awesome food. Our favorite for the... More

When I made the reservation I requested and was assured a table in the quietest possible location, a corner would have been sufficient. The hostess who seated us in the middle of the main dining room had no record of this request. We then waited a full 20 minutes for a server. Nothing, including water, was placed on the table...

Our 25th wedding anniversary dinner - we chose Panevino's since we have heard good things since our first nearly disastrous (horrible service and cold food) dinner shortly after they first opened. We are literally the only diners seated around 5 pm. A very large party is at the bar gathering for a dinner as a group. Our waiter is attentive... More
