The entrees are generous in size, tastefully prepare to order and a side salad is included. The staff was gracious in accommodating dietary restrictions to the best of their ability. I have eaten here multiple times.

We had a very tasty lunch, the salad was especially tasty. Unfortunately the service was exceptionally slow

This was recommended by one of the people dining with us but I'd never been. I was pleasantly surprised at the pleasant bartender who talked to us while we waited for the rest of the group to come. Told us about happy hour specials, etc. We all found something we wanted and our appetizers were excellent, calamari and some special.... More

It is only natural that if you go to a restaurant that has a particular dish as part of its name you would expect that dish to be the restaurant's specialty. So you try the pizza at Tony's Pizzeria, the oysters at the Otto's Oyster Bar, the ramen at Toshi's House of Ramen, and the pickles at Emma's Pickle Emporium.... More

Excellent staff, they offer a very good menu and the dishes are far beyond what you would expect in a strip mall. You will find an inviting and warm atmosphere. Nice outside deck to dine after dark. (after the traffic lightens up). Try it you will like it!

Visited Risottos for lunch and had their lunch combo special. The chicken and three cheese risotto was excellent. The loaded baked potato soup was somewhat bland and for some reason was full of broccoli. The soup came with a side of pita bread which was very good. I would be interested in returning for dinner. Overall I would recommend. Good... More

Really enjoyed our Brunch experience. I had the CONTINENTAL, boneless fried chicken, scrambled egg, bacon, american cheese, salted maple butter, served over homemade waffles and with a side of home fries. Very good. The bottomless POINSETTIA was a nice treat to end our weekend. Waitress was right on top of things and the bartender greeted us upon entering and thanked... More

We were celebrating some birthdays and wanted to try somewhere different. Unfortunately, this place just did not measure up. Nothing impressive or outstanding about it. What was being served as Crème Brule was actually disgusting.
