First time at this restaurant and will definitely return. Our waitress Amy from Albania was very attentive. Time between courses allowed for a delightful relaxing evening . The food was superb. Loved the lobster ravioli with shrimp.

Our server Rashida was pleasant and very knowledgeable on both food and wine. The Branzino was excellent, we shared a bottle of super Tuscan Wine (bottle exclusively for the restaurant) north were delicious. Between the ambiance Rashida’s Italian accent were felt like we just dined...in Italy. Just beautiful!!!More

I know that restaurants have had their issues with servers and increasing prices, but for 300 one of the worst meals I’ve had in a long time . The restaurant was empty.. a standard dish like my veal saltimbocca was grey and non flavorful .....the appetizer of shrimp (1) and calamari was limpy and had no flavor.. we live in the area and there are so many other flavorful Italian restaurantsMore

While it was pleasant to dine outdoors, the food and service were just average. The appetizers were very enjoyable however the food was just ok. Our server was extremely distracted and confused. She mixed up our bill several times, in spite of rewriting it.

Not sure even where to begin, i guess the only good thing was our server. First we were seated at a table next to a sewer that smelled like straight up poop, our server politely moved us. We were never told specials but every table...next us were told specials. Salads came great, dinner came..had chicken parmesan less than. Impressed not even a half cup of cooked pasta and cheese not even melted...server came back very apologetic ..took back with manager.. (wearing blue dress and blonde curly hair) came back in less than 3 min. With the dish..She never came back to see how things were..... very sad to see that this is a person running your restaurant, she didn't/doesnt care she was done with her shift becuase she shortly left after that. Meal was only hot, added extra pasta to dish sauce on top and cheese still not melted..decided to eat so my husband and i could eat together. Server cleared dishes and never offered desserts. But other tables around us were.... Leaving asked hostess where to leave review she told and then asked and i explained and she proceeded to laugh that we were there not even an hour...that manager didnt care and continued to not care..like im only a hostess....her name was ava i believe. Long story short, i would never go back or ever recommend to anyone...not sure how this place scored so high on theor stars...good thing we had cocktails and appetizers at the Rtiz Carlton before heading over ....More

Fabulous night out with friends. Service by Jessica was spot-on. I throughly enjoyed my dover sole. Other guests at the table had the veal parmigiana and home-made parpadelle pasta, all seemed quite pleased. We will definitely return.

My husband and I enjoy this restaurant’s atmosphere, food, and service. Jessica ,our server on several occasions, has been fantastic! She is very personable and attentive, but doesn’t hover. We will continue to go back not only for the great food, but because of Jessica’s...sparkling personality.More

Beautiful evening ( 2 March ) with plenty of outdoor seating. Caitlyn was our server and she was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The bread and dipping oil was very good and Caitlyn brought us more without our having to ask. Her recommendation...of lasagne was spot on. My friend had the Beef Carpaccio and a side of sautéed spinach. There was a little live music, but not loud enough to interfere with conversation. There is a parking deck around the corner.More

Came here on a week night and sat outside on the patio with live music. The vibe was great but the food was really poor and the service was bad. Here is the laundry list: the drinks were watered down, the bruschetta was on some...kind of bread that was soggy and the pasta was sauce with pasta served in a skillet…???? Got our order wrong as well. This is not Italian food, it’s a tourist trap with crappy food.More

Tasteless, under seasoned across the board. While all for personal expression, our waiter had so many body piercings in his face it was a distraction. He had so many tables, we couldn’t even get Water refilled. Chicken Parmesan was flavorless, pasta side was mushy with...tasteless tomato sauce. Seafood tasted frozen and lacked any seasoning. Would never returnMore

Great food, and great service. This is a huge restaurant, with half or more of the tables outside. It was really full, but the service was very efficient, friendly, and appeared unrushed - quite a feat, under the circumstances. The icing on the cake was...the 2 singers who performed live for hours, non-stop. Great voices, and great repertoire - and they were just filling in at the last moment!More

Had dinner with friends New Year’s Eve…was really looking forward to a delightful meal based on the reviews I’d read, and previous visits. However, starting with a poor martini it was really a very mediocre meal…tiny calamari undercooked and very skinny grouper somewhat dry and...over cooked. I should’ve sent them back but I know everyone is service challenged right now, and it was a very busy night. Nonetheless, for the $$$ involved, very mediocre. We won’t be hurrying back anytime soon ☹️☹️More

Our party of four had a fair experience at Brevardi’s Salute. We had a variety of salads, entrees, wines and desserts. Two diners in our party thought their meal was “bland”. I tried my side of asparagus and it was like chewing on plastic; I...gave up after one piece. The server was excellent and the atmosphere was nice. Unfortunately for close to $90 a couple I expect better food.More
