New Years Eve

We tried a few restaurants on New Years Eve within walking distance of each other. Pane info is usually one of our favorites but tonight was a little disappointing. The bartenders were looking at their watches and ready to leave. This was one of a few places we visited and came in last tonight... read more

Food quality not worth the money. Onion soup not onion soup... some cream soup with onion taste with 'sponge' in it. Salad very sparse.

I've traveled extensively and have had the opportunity to experience every level of restaurant service imaginable. But ... this is the first time the service was so horrible that I feel the need to write a very negative review. I should say up front that the wait staff was trying hard and were well tipped, but the kitchen service was... More

First time I ever posted a negative comment on a restaurant. Had New Years Eve dinner last night. Restaurant was very busy but service was extraordinarily slow. Arrived at 7:30pm and finally got our appetizer at 9pm. We commented to our waiter who tried to expedite our meals. Appetizers finally came and two were ice cold. Our meals arrived at... More

I have eaten at Panevino probably as many as ten times since it first opened. Sadly I remain frustrated with the hit or miss quality of the food. Sometimes the food is amazing and I find myself thinking that I can't wait to return but the last time I ate there I decided that would be the last. The level... More

The place was nearly empty, yet it took about 55 minutes for my meal to arrive, and the waitress dropped my wife's plate on the way. Not enough time for them to make another plate since we had a show to get to, so my wife is eating a soft pretzel for dinner because of the slow klutzy waitress. Hostess... More

We had their 3 course dinner special, it was great from beginning to the amazing creme brûlée ending! Both the head chef and pastry chef are the real deal. Price point is very good and service was impeccable

My husband and I went to Panevino for our 1st wedding anniversary. Service was great. Food was excellent. Sunday night was the perfect night to go because it wasn't crowded.

Service was ok and the food was good, but the quantity was less than expected. I had the pappardelle and the serving was just too stingy considering the price.

My husband and I had dinner the first Friday of October 2015 @ Panevinos. Upon entering the restaurant, we saw it was busy and asked if there was a table available for two. We were seated promptly. However, it was at least 15 minutes until we we acknowledged. The waitress did apologized for the wait and took our drink order.... More
