I have eaten here a dozen times and have never had a disappointing meal! Everything that i have ordered came fresh and hot. It's a smaller place that is nice to go to with friends or for couples (not kid friendly).

We have dined at El Dente about 6 times and have always enjoyed the food. We returned tonight to celebrate our anniversary, and other than 1 table of 10 and a lady at the bar, the restaurant was empty. The server passed us several time with food for the 1 table and appeared to come across by accident. She was friendly and took our drink order and after chatting with what appeared to be a supplier, gave the bartender our order, it was dispensed and left on the bar. After waiting, I got up and got the drinks. The server returned and took our order and brought back their usually wonderful bread, but tonight it was not even warm. The food arrived and while mine was flavourful it was lukewarm. My husband said his lasagna was hot and delicious. I am certainly not attributing this disappointing evening on the server, the chef takes some of the blame, enough that we definitely will not be returning nor recommending to anyone else.

Just ate here for our first time and it won't be the last. The food was excellent and service even bettter! Quantities were large, timing between courses perfect and our kids, seated at a different table, were treated amazing. Our waitress and the hosts were awesome. Can't wait to try again and test out the deck. We will definitely be coming back.

Had such an amazing experience at this restaurant! The food was absolutely spectacular and the service was great. They served me the best pasta I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Nothing about our visit to Al Dente restaurant was a disappointment. Better than the Olive Garden.

Have eaten here about 6 times and have never had a good meal. The food has always come out of the kitchen cold. They have actually run out of bread twice. As well the service has always been slow and the staff almost never follows up with patrons
