Valet parking was convenient. Comfortable seating. Lighting was perfect for ambience. Good menu choices. The appetizers were perfect. Entrees were good, the bass might be salty for some diners but was fine for me. The panna cotta dessert was excellent. The chocolate cake was too dry for my liking. I see some reviewers complained about portion size. While it's not... More

We found it hard not to rate this place at 4 stars. Good menu, lots of interesting dishes, pretty good service, nice ambiance. Why the disappointment? Dishes were generally good, but they lacked edge. Nothing was really outstanding, and given the price, something should have stood out. Plates were spare, and we left a bit hungry despite two appetizers (small... More

We walked into this Harbor East eatery at random for dinner on a Friday night. There was immediate seating at 7pm and there were always a few tables available. The place is pretty large and moderately dressy to business casual. Food - We chose from the 3-course $29 menu. A $69 per person menu with large secondi plates and an... More

There's a lot of good things to say about Cinghiale. Great service, complementary valet parking, large wine selection, alluring decor, choice between a dressy or more casual side of the restaurant, awesome bread, and options for pre fixe or a-la-carte menus. However, though food quality is certainly good, I'm not sure the prices justify them to that extent. I'm a... More

Tuesday nights are half price bottles of wine, which makes them reasonable. And the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere for drinking the wine. As for the food, don't bother. The three course meal seems like a good deal until you actually get the food...what little food there is! I have to say it was the worst lasagna I have ever... More

I first want to say that the atmoshere in the restaurant is real nice and the staff was very attentive. The food was ok, but the portions were very small. I think everyone was done with there meal within 2 to 3 minutes. The potato puree on my plate was the size of a quarter and they gave mne 3... More

I shied away from this place for long time because I had heard it was very expensive. And it can be - but I had the 3 course prix fix menu and the three courses were delicious, creatively prepared, and were excellent portions with plenty of food. It's not overly expensive and was a fair price for the amount and... More

Met some local friends for dinner and drinks. They had been told it was a good place for dinner. Very clean restaurant, bathrooms had individual cloth towels which was nice touch. I thought the food was a let down. Very small portions for the price. I had the short rib, literally, one small rib that was fatty. No one was... More
