We had 18 in our party. They accommodated us very well. The waiter was great and did not mix up our meals. I had the Chesapeake chicken which literally melted in my mouth.

We came here as a group of 8 for a casual dinner after our wedding. It was a 7:30 pm Open Table. It took awhile for a server to bring our water and greet us and awhile for him to bring us the bill but everything else was wonderful. The food was terrific so said everyone in the group. It's... More

This review covers two visits to Fontina Grill. Ever since our older daughter moved to the King Farm complex a couple of years ago, we've become regular customers for the following reasons: 1. Excellent food. 2. Excellent service. 3. Gluten-free friendly food (the chef really makes an effort). 4. Dog friendly (lovely outside seating for customers with dogs). Saturday, June... More

Nice little slice of Italy located in a small town center off of 355. Have had dinner there several times over the past couple of years and the quality of the food is consistent and very good. Moderate menu prices. The menu has most of the expected Italian dishes and the service is fine. The seafood dishes are well-prepared and... More

Seven of us and everything was great. The meatball appetizer was particularly good. We had Picatta, Parmesan, crab and others.

I have been here twice recently for dinner after not going for many years. I must say that I was truly surprised at how good the mussels were. Since then we have tried a number of veal dishes and you can even order off menu (truly a treat). We were not disappointed and I was truly glad that I could... More

The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the service is excellent. The wait staff really take good care of you and give you plenty of attention. The food is delicioso! They have a pretty good lunch buffet during the week. You have your choice of pasta, meatballs, mussels, pizza, and also 3 different types of salads. The regular menu has... More

A great place to go for pizza. The rest of the food is tasty but not where I would go for good Italian cooking (although very popular with the locals).

I am writing again because the first time I reviewed this, I had not been to their "happy hour" and I now just love this as a regular stop to meet up with friends after work. My group has now chosen Fontina for our bi-monthly "get togethers." The drinks are wonderful... full bar with everything you could want... and the... More
