Upmarket but still good value- extensive menu of pastas, meat, seafood, all well executed. Good wine selection. My only critisism is the portions can be massive- which is so unnecesary as it would be finer if they served less and presented the dishes a little better.

The only good thing about this place is that the seafood is fresh - everything else is just so bland!!!!!

When I get a craving for spaghetti, it has to be at Assagio's. Start off with a Cesars salad, then the liguine with jumbo prawns, the prawns are so big, cooked to perfection, paired with their signature french bread, OH MY GOD! Again another restaurant you don't have to dress formal to enjoy. Make a reservation though, especially if your hungry, the wait is quite long, but worth the wait.

It's not bad food but it is.......'pedestrian'.
Had occasion to dine there on three occasions - once out of choice, twice as a result of family obligations - and we ordered different items from their pretty extensive menu on each occasion. Portions were generous, service was efficient, the atmosphere casual elegance, prices were on the high side and the various dishes universally bland.
Just our opinion, of course.......

We met our local friends here while on our vacation in Hawaii. It is one of their favorite restaurants. Nice mix of italian food with seafood (shrimp, clams, scallops and fish) and of course the classic italian food. Very large menu with reasonable prices for the food. Nice views of the harbor if seated near the windows and good service.

Only negative was their wine is a bit pricey. $38 for a bottle of Kendall Jackson which you can get even at expensive prices for $15 in a store. But if you just stick with a glass of wine, beer or iced tea you can have a very good dinner at a great price.
