“Very Busy Saturday Night”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

I've always loved Eastside Mario's, and we were not disappointed with this visit in the least. Wait time for a table on Saturday night was 30 minutes. The kitchen was extremely busy, but the waitress (Polly) was charming, and kept the bread coming to the table, and got our salads quickly. Our main dishes were wonderful, and the children enjoyed desserts. Polly was very interactive with the entire table, especially our little girls who thought her accent was wonderful. We will certainly return again.

“Good food but noisy”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Love the food, but can't handle the noise. It's so loud there you can't chat without yelling

“Very ordinary chain food restaurant”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

Service was good, but the food absolutely unextraodordiary, menu standard and unexciting. There are way better places to eat in the price range

“Not the usual service this time.”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

I eat at one of the various East Side Mario's 4 or 5 times a year. I have been to the Dartmouth MicMacMall one on several occasions but this time, the service fell short of what we typically receive. We arrived around 7:30 pm. We had almost a 10 minute wait to be seated even though we could see a half a dozen tables empty right from where we stood in the foyer. We ordered, and received our bread and drinks quickly. Both entrees included all you can eat soup or salad. I had the soup, my friend had the garden salad. The waitress came by 3 times to say the food was almost ready but at no point did she offer us more of our starter to hold us over. When the food arrived, it was indeed hot, however.
