Went for third or fourth time on Saturday. Party of three. Was told 45 minute wait. Turned out to be two and a half hours. Totally out of control management, oversight, and customer focus. Finally got a table by planting myself at the check in point an insisting on action. Not even an offer to buy us a drink for... More

I would have given them 5 stars but as a Chef I am very picky about my food. We ordered the Calamari appetizer. The Calamari was well seasoned, but a little chewy. Tip soak the Calamari in Seltzer water. The marinara was horrible. It tasted like a can. The bread was warm, soft, and tasty. Next we ordered the 3... More

It's not cheap, but it's also not outrageously expensive. What it is always, though, is great. The food is always delicious and plentiful (we always leave with a "doggie" bag), and the staff is efficient and friendly. When you eat at the Pine, you feel like you're having dinner at Grandma's house.

This is one place that we've come to, as a family, to celebrate special occasions like a graduation and confirmation. The food is authentic and service is great. Plenty of room to spread out in this spacious restaurant.

I've been to the restaurant many times before for lunch or dinner and the food and environment is always great. HOWEVER, when it comes to an event, I was highly disappointed. The appetizers were amazing, BUT the buffet was poorly done. About 3 trays for about 80 people and the food was tasteless. Hope they get better with their catering... More

First visit in 5 years (because I moved away). This place is full of atmosphere, which I love. I have been coming here for 20 years. Parking is nightmare. Either Valet park - if you are brave, or park on the neighborhood street. I witnessed a Valet parker hit another car, so be careful. Arrived at 6:15 p.m. on a... More

I have been to the Pine Tavern on numerous occasions and I am never disappointed. I usually start off with the pasta y fagioli and then the entre. I love all the food there and the service is excellent as well. I live on Staten Island and it is with the trip.

Huge portions of average food. The appetizer we split was the stuffed artichoke which was disappointing to say the least. Some kink of brown sauce overwhelmed it and made it hard to eat. We split an broiled seafood plate which was overdone. Prices are moderate but food quality was below average at the best.

I had heard about this place for years and couldn't possibly believe it had good Italian food. Well...it had EXCELLENT and as close to homemade Italian food as you can get this side of the Atlantic. Coming from a 1st gen Italian family, I could even bring my mom here without complaint. The meatball was DELICIOUS - the meat fell... More
