Had dinner here with family during our beach vacation. The food was as good as we remembered. We had a 9 year old with us so a bit nervous since no kids menu but they were VERY accommodating to our needs. Even though crowded the service was right on schedule and lick the plate wonderful. We have fond memories till next years visit. Everyone raved about their dishes. One meal was Halibut special and 2 of us had it and could not believe how wonderful it's was. Highly recommend of you are in the area.

This is a nice restaurant, good food, and expensive. But its Hilton Head so expect it. However if that's what you want to be, then have the little things that come with an expensive restaurant. Example, we ordered 2 different appetizers to share with 4 people just to sample the food. Gnocchi and then ravioli, both were very tasty, however the waiter puts down the bowls for all of us to share with no spoons to dish it out. When the ravioli came out there was only 3 of them and there were 4 of us. We would have gladly paid more if we each could've had our own. we told the waiter we were sharing the appetizers, he should've known and said something. The specials were given without prices and we should've asked because they were as expected very high. The food was good and very nice atmosphere , however none of the above would've happened in NYC of Chicago, which we frequent often. It almost seemed like we were just another number to them, eat and get out. too bad.

We ate here for dinner and it was very good. I would say that the prices are a little steep and the food wasn't inspirational. Service was outstanding and the accoutrements were excellent as well. Our meal was next to a table of 12 with many infants so that didn't help our impression. The sauces were ok and overall there were gaps that keep it from being a 5. I'd definitely go back though for a second chance!

We go every year when in Hilton Head but this year was by far the best. Food was amazing but Alex our server was top notch and made this year the best ever. It was busy in there the night we went, so glad to see that, and Alex was always checking on us, making sure we had all we needed. We will be back no doubt!!

Just dined at Ombra for the first time and will definitely return on future trips to Hilton Head. We had the early special menu: excellent salad, wonderful soup, nicely prepared fish and veal dishes, and great profiteroles. Wine selection is very good and our waiter (from west coast of Florida) was knowledgeable, attentive and very helpful. Oh, and their homemade Italian bread is as good as we've ever had...just perfect!
