“The food was very good, as well as the service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Might have to wait at peak times, but the food was well worth it. Some items a bit pricey, including the wines. I went with a party of 4, each having a different entrée, and each said it was very good and would return. The tables are a bit close to each other as they try to accommodate more people, which detracts from the ambiance.

“Favorable initial impression, but disappointed with cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Dinner for two. No reservations ,but quickly found places at the bar. Restaurant was packed and noisy; customers were clearly enjoying the ambiance. Wine list extensive and interesting; prices from top to bottom. List of wines by the glass just sufficient and prices in line with expectations.

My wife ordered soup with lentils and lamb sausage which she found to be too bland with too many onions and chewy pieces of sausage. I ordered fried oysters which were too small and encased in a too thick cornmeal batter: major disappointment. Main courses were: snapper & pappardelle with Texas rabbit sauce. Fish was overcooked and dry, served with mish-mash of vegetables: totally unappealing. Pappardelle was first rate: thoroughly enjoyable.

So, while we were initially impressed and hoped that the ambience would be matched by the quality of the kitchen fare, we were sorely disappointed. Too bad. We'll go again for the atmosphere, but will stick with the pasta.

I was very impressed by the food and service at Prego. They gave us everything we needed and the food was very delicious. We will definitely be back!

“Too Sour!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Went to Prego before the theater. Not impressed. Very loud bar area you must pass before getting to a table. Décor is dark and outdated. Too '90s. Tin ceiling emphasizes noise. Ordered breaded sautéed chicken breast with lemon, butter & chopped tomatoes. Came with mashed potatoes with pesto drip & sautéed spinach. Chicken was cooked well, but WAY TOO MUCH LEMON!!! It overpowered everything. You could not taste anything else but lemon. Waiter was arrogant, especially after I just ordered iced tea instead of a wine.

“Will Not Disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The pasta is house made and fresh, the sauces are interesting and very tasty. Nice wine selection that is not too pricey.
