We had our daughters rehearsal dinner here. The food was fabulous. The staff was great! So nice and friendly. The food was wonderful Italian cuisine. I had the roast chicken with potatoes, wow! I couldn't get enough of those potatoes! I would have licked my plate clean if my wife would have let me. I would definitely eat here again

Never a bad meal. The waiter was very kid friendly. I think his name is Shane. He was the best waiter and I was told kids ask to be sat in his section.

This restaurant has always been one of our favorites, but tonight we had one of the worst meals ever: limp, tasteless salad, pathetic pasta with no taste whatsoever, and the worst veal imaginable--probably bought from one of those restaurant suppliers who provide frozen entrees.. The bread baskets here used to be a delight--with artisan breads. Now the bread basket is... More

The special for the evening was a sliced beef tenderloin dish that defies the search for superlatives! In addition to my wife's pleasant pasta dish, a standard minestrone cup and salad, the special, followed by a key lime pie cheesecake made for a very nice evening. The wine list is ample, but I wouldn't recommend the sangiovese, which was pallid.

Service is ok, nothing special. Food is consistently good; but, not great. A little pricey. It is expensive for pasta and Americanized vs true Itallian.

After a difficult day out and about, it was refreshing to have Il Fornaio's staff pamper us with compliments. The food was hot and tasty. Their chianti house wine is splendid. Will go back.

This isn't four-star, but the atmosphere is lovely and the food is quite decent, if not consistent in quality. Watch out for fish: depending on who's doing the cooking, it could come out cooked to the texture of an old tire. They will, however, take it back or take the cost off your check, and for that, I give them... More

I had a friend visiting from out of state, and we went to the Galleria for a day of shopping. In the past, I've always eaten at Il Fornaio, and both the service and the food have been very good, so I took her there for lunch. They have a lovely patio for outside seating, and a beautiful interior as... More

The food is excellent, the wine selection is good and the servers are friendly and prompt. Need reservations, don't just drop in on most nights.
