“Food fabulous, wait staff, not so much.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The Chicken Parmesan was fabulous as always! Can't wait to run into town & eat at one of our favorite restaurants, however, this time our waiter made our visit not as enjoyable as we would have liked. He simply had a bad attitude for whatever reason, but it did not take away from the wonderful food this restaurant serves to its patrons. Thanks for another great meal, we will return!

“Very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I don't write many reviews, however I felt this restaurant deserves the attention. It was a slow Monday night, and although the service was a little slow, we we're there to dine so we didn't mind. Everything sounded so good and we had a hard time deciding, so we asked for help from the server. In a catch 22, she added to our indecisiveness by adding another entree that sounded excellent. In addition to extremely good complimentary bread service, we had 2 pasta dishes, and the cheesecake. We enjoyed everything and will definitely return.

“Best Italian, Best Bar in FWB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

As a FWB local, I would urge all travelers to check out Clemenza's at Uptown Station. It is a locally owned restaurant with the aesthetic appeal of a corporate chain. The decor is beautiful and relaxing, perfect for any business meeting, social outing, or date night. I have dined here solo, with my husband, and for business meetings. The bar offers a wide range of spirits, both well and top shelf. Love the Grapas! The pizza is AWESOME! The crust is great and well prepared out of the wood fired oven. In addition to the restaurant, there is an amazing meeting space which boasts a custom kitchen designed for cooking classes offered by our area's talented chefs. Some of my favorite menu items include the Caprese Bruschetta, Caesar Salad, and Gorgonzola Pizza. They also offer a Saturday and Sunday breakfast "Mamma Clemenza's" that offers a unique and creative menu. Try their specialty mimosa when you dine during breakfast hours. All in all, there is no other place like this in FWB and I am glad to have them in town for a true upscale dining experience which you will not find elsewhere unless you make the drive to Destin.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

I read all the reviews & was looking forward to some good wood fired pizza. The pizza was just ok due to the fact that the crust was burnt. I noticed that the table next to us also had a pizza & it looked the same way so maybe that's how it's served. However my main problem was our waiter. He seemed annoyed that he had to work. After bringing my husband one drink he never returned to ask if we wanted another drink or dessert or anything else. He just dropped off the check. The other waiters seemed fine so it was just our bad luck.
