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

Friends and I met for dinner here tonight. Service was ok, food was ok. Not overly pleased with it all around. I left hungry. For the prices, that shouldn't happen.

The food is good and the service is average but I would not wait to eat there. It is convenient and food is served fast. Give it a try and maybe you will like it

I have frequented this restaurant for many years. However, we went last year and the food was not fresh. Tasted frozen and heated up. Sauces were not fresh as well. Used to love going out to Dinner here at the last minute as we always had great service and food. Bring back the "Quality" of food and not frozen and... More
