“Food is fantastic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Love the food there. It just got remodoled but I haven't had the pleasure of going there to see it yet. Me husband services the place and told me it is remodeled. No, there are no discrepancies with the place. We like to go there with other couples, or family members.

“Longstanding restaurant still worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I recently visited my hometown of Warren, OH and dined at the 422 - a restaurant my family frequented often while growing up. Though the 422 Cafe is under newer ownership, they've kept some of the same dishes made famous by the Abruzzi family (original owners).

The hot peppers are now a standard item on the Appetizer menu and I highly recommend them. We've tried for many years to replicate this recipe at home but we've never matched the 422 peppers - they're fantastic! Steaks, seafood, and the pasta dishes resemble the original menu. The eggplant parmesan is very tasty. One dish I'd like to see the new owners bring back - Steak Siciliano - a strip steak covered with cheese, onions, and peppers. Perhaps not the most health conscious dish but was a real treat.

It was refreshing to see some new menu additions with a broader Mediterranean focus. The service was top notch and the new owners' renovations are very tasteful. We dined on a Friday night and we were pleased to see the 422 as busy as it was 40 years ago when it was the place to be in Warren, Ohio!

“Pleasant, comfortable dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

We often meet for lunch and although our meal is presented quickly, the staff allows my friend and I to take our time over coffee. The portobello mushroom sandwich is a good vegetarian option for lunch. Choices on the dinner menu for non-meat diners are hard to find although you will find seafood. There is a choice of both or tables and the restaurant is handicapped accessible.

“Good food, recently renovated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

The Cafe 422 was always an old time favorite among locals in NE Ohio. Years ago it was the place to go. It's been under new ownership for several years now and many updates and renovations have taken place. The food is very good - we love their chicken francaise and steak sandwiches, but don't miss their homemade bread. It's wonderful. And one thing they do offer that's kind of unique is outdoor terrace dining in the summer.

“Very Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

The Food was very good and their pick 3 for $16.95 is an excellent value. they could probably use a little more help as it was difficult to get the waiters attention sometimes to order additional items (i.e. drinks, appetizers, bread and then dinner). Remodeling is very nice but the bar area is very small.
