This was our first dining experience in String's new location on North Main Street. The waitress was friendly, the food was great, and the atmosphere was nice.

My kids and I wanted to try some spaghetti and meatballs and lasagna, so we were pretty excited when we were only 10 min away from this reataurant. The decor is a little outdated and the soup they gave me with my lasagna seemed microwaved and not fresh. My kids liked the meatballs but they didn't like their noodles. My... More

We visited the new location on N Main recently. It's the same owner as the one on S Main. The artichoke was excellent, the Pasta Siena was not to my liking. The chicken in it was really good, but I didn't like the shrimp or the pasta. If you like curry, you might like it. It's a little pricey for... More

So many things wrong with this place, hard to know where to begin. We (husband and I) went on a Friday evening. They say it is a "full bar" but their wine choices (they don't have a list) is extremely limited and not the highest quality. I had the chicken marsala and husband had the salmon. I also had a...

My friend and I never have liked Strings BUT we decided to try the new location and we really liked it. We met other friends there and they were also impressed. We all ate in the bar area and the service not very good. Not enough help but with that being said it was only a week being opened. Looking... More

We had my husbands birthday dinner at Strings. We were hoping the new restaurant would be open, but it won't be until July. We knew the food would be great, because we had eaten here before. The food was wonderful and we were accommodated very nicely. We love the endless bread and delicious salad that comes with the meal. We... More

I would very much like to recommend this restaurant good anytime. Always friendly, always good. Never a long wait for food or drinks. Small and perfect for family or couples.

The service was good and the staff very friendly. The food on the other hand not that great. I ordered the lasagna with meatballs. Meatballs were tender and cooked well. The lasagna on the other hand wasn't. First it was a very small portion comparing it to the Strings in Modesto, CA. I use to go there because it was... More
