“Christmas with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This was a dinner with out-of-town family and friends. We had reservations for 6 people and had to add one at the last minute which was not a problem. The first 2 wines I ordered off the wine list they did not have. Their recommendations were good, however a little more pricey. Our waitress seemed rushed and not very attentive unless we asked for something. Once she gave us our check we never saw her again. I had the lasagna which was a little dry, however the rest of the meals were excellent.

“loud and slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food was just OK. The presentation of the food was lacking. It was very loud and the server was disoriented. Cost was too much for the experience.

“Great neighborhood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Long established restaurant in the Park Ave, area...family owned for many years..quiet(in the right dining area), excellent selection of Italian food, and especially seafood-the seafood pasta w/linguini is excellent, and can be ordered with angel hair pasta, which, in my opinion, is better.
The salmon & halibut are also great.

“Wedding Reception”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Genusa's is the perfect venue for a small wedding reception. Cherry Genusa took care of everything! My guests raved about the food. The whole experience - planning, setup, wait staff, ambience, etc. - was PERFECT!
