“How many stars for long wait?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We were staying at the Presque Isle Inn and Convention Center which houses Gram Russo’s and we had eaten there before so we knew the food would be good. The food was good. However, we were seated at 6:00 PM and were served at 7:10. No, we didn’t have appetizers. I’m sure the reason for this long wait was the 2 large parties (15-20 people each) they had. I’m thinking that if they knew these parties were coming, and I believe they did, they should have adjusted their staff accordingly. It didn’t appear that this was done. Anyway, for this very long wait I’d like to give 3.5 stars but can’t. So it will be 3 stars even though the staff was great and the food wonderful. I would now advise anyone planning to eat there to call ahead to see if they have large parties booked and adjust your plans based on their response.

“Good Italian food for potato country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

There were three couples in our group and we all had different meals. No complaints from anyone. The prices were very reasonable and the service was top notch.

Good food, tasteful and classy decor, excellent view through large windows in dining area. This restaurant serves a great hotel breakfast and is a real good choice for a nice dinner as well.

“Kinda pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

It was nice to have a restaurant attached to the hotel but the food was quite pricey and not that tasty.
