Delicious dinner

Reserved the private room, and the service and food were great. Delicious appetizers, main courses and desserts. Small portions for the entrees, but otherwise can't complain. Great wine selection.

Don't waste your money. Overpriced food, if you have to eat there just get a burger. The waitresses are very nice but the head waitress gave us a dirty look after we informed her that SHE brought us the wrong plate of food. I wish we had just gone to Teddy's Big Burgers across the street

I had read a good review of Formaggio's so as we decided to try it. The atmosphere is okay, but the food was wonderful.

Our children's one and only wedding night, straight over there from the wedding. No one acknowledged that at all with them. Our daughter in her beautiful gown, fresh flowers in her hair, her groom wearing a fresh floral lei. Surely someone could have at least asked them or commented a congratulations message. Wait staff didn't even acknowledge 6 of us... More

4 adults and 2 children. 2 adult drinks took 10 min and another 6 for the other 2 adult and 2 milks to be served. Same service with our dinners..3 were served and we watched them eat for 5 min before the rest were served..we were celebrating my son's promotion..$250.00 later and I would not recommend to anyone...

We had made reservations for a party of 20. We were told we'd get an L set up, instead we got 2 tables next to each other, so half the party had their backs to each other. We waited over 1.5 hours for our food to be served. In that time, no drinks were refilled, except water, the waitress never... More

Visited with a group of eight, three people had steaks which we're very good, but very pricey too. Mashed potatoes were good. Drinks were okay, sangria was average. Mahi mahi chowder was very average to poor, lobster mac and cheese was terrible. Awful flavor combinations. Everyone at the table tried it and everyone agreed it was bad. Two kids pastas... More

We've been coming to Formaggio for many years, and last year they had a great jazz on Thursdays in the back room, but no more. I like the bar the best, nice bartender and the food is usually pretty good, although not super special. wine is a little pricey by the glass but not much worse than anywhere else and... More

Food was forgettable and it took 30 minutes to get a house salad because the kitchen was crippled by orders from a private party. Server was very sweet but should have let us know there would be a delay.

Like a diamond in the rough this place was just waiting to be discovered. Excellent menu choices with outstanding attention to detail on food presentation. We discovered 2 new wines from their large wine list. Bartender and staff are very friendly, providing personalized service.
