The Reservoir is consistent. Food is always tasty. I've been going there for nearly a decade and I have very few complaints. The pizza is terrific, the Riviera Club sandwich is fresh and savory, the salads are artful, and the calamari is lightly crisp and never chewy. Oh. and the sausage and peppers with potatoes is usually a big hit.... More

Youse needs pizza? Dis is da place. Relatively inexpensive drinks and eats. The pies come small and large and are basic. From there you add on whatever extras you like. Service was fast, accurate, and friendly. Expect a big crowd on Friday and Saturday nights so go early or late.

Terrible terrible hostess management!!! We made reservations at 5:15 for 6 o'clock. Checked in on time. Waited and waited and waited. 6:30 we finally discovered they were only just seating their 5 o'clock dinner guests which meant they were 1 1/2 hours behind our reservations. Be honest with people as she never told us!! Don't take reservations you can't accommodate!!!... More

I've been eating at the Reservoir for 50 years and never had a bad meal until the day they burnt the pizza. It would have been fine if we had requested a charred pizza, but we hadn't. To top it off, the pizza wasn't round (kind of a strange oval shape) and it was absolutely tasteless. Ours wasn't the only... More

The food was very good, the shrimp calabres was excellent, as advertised and I highly recommend it. The pizza was also very good, maybe one of the best that I have ever had. The service was terrible, we called in and we had our names on "the list", we were told it would be 1/2 hour, it turned out to... More

One of the areas fixtures Pizzas are one of their signature entrées, but the dinner menu offers so much more and the specials always offer surprises Get there early as the crowd can be daunting...it is worth it

Felt welcomed as soon as we got here. Terry had a large Saturday crowd under control and at tables in no time at all. Delicious food, quick and knowledgeable waitstaff, and an overall lovely evening. Pizza is really as good as they say.

We had a quick lunch today at the RT. The food, service are always outstanding. Today we had a grilled octopus salad (incredible, loved it so much we ordered another portion to take home), a seafood special of red snapper and a small (they jest if they thought it was small) clam and garlic pizza. The food is just too... More
