I have eaten here twice and I have read so many great reviews about this place, so I gave it another shot, still very average and over rated to me. 1st there is no real place to wait to be seated so you stand in a hallway which is crowded and cold, and it seemed to me that if you... More

Friendly staff, very busy on weekends, I go for lunch. Great soups, and believe it or not steaks. Offer quail, rabbit, tripe and other odd ethnic dishes -different every day. A lot of good food for reasonable money. Try the flans and puddings......yummy

Went to O'Dinis last night and enjoyed a wonderful, authentic Portuguese meal. The place and small and fills up quickly, so plan accordingly. Can't wait to go back.

This restaurant has been here for a while. The owner has been in the Portuguese restaurant business for many years. It's a small place, what we would call a tasca somewhere else. But it's a pleasant family restaurant. Look around and you'll see mostly native Portuguese speakers having a happy time. This last visit I chose a special (I usually... More

Stopped in for Sunday lunch. Great specials menu and wonderful, friendly service. Great food with a few small flaws. Mixed seafood kebab was a overcooked. But had great flavor. Cabbage and carrots in side dish were cooked too long. Everything else was very good.

The place was packed with locals when we arrived at 8:30 p.m. Though we were slow to be acknowledged, we were told we would get a table in 20 minutes, which we did. Our waitress... More
