Service was excellent but the food was awful. Ordered the shrimp and scallops in vodka cream sauce and it had absolutely no taste. Also had Calamari for an appetizer and it was all breading. Will think twice before going back there again

Food was pretty good for takeout. They deliver to your car at the curb and very friendly. The order was correct and they packed everything nicely.

Delicious food and professional service. Highly recommend the chicken soup and blackberry sangria. Had a great time at this restaurant and look forward to going back.

The food was really really good. BUTTTT!! There was just the wife and I and we don't drink. The bill came out to just under $60.00.

Service was very good. This restaurant is always busy, yet we have never had a long wait to receive our food.

Have been to this restaurant a dozen or more times when visiting Allentown. It has never once disappointed. The food is consistently good and the prices are reasonable. The service is always attentive but not overbearing. Sometimes there's a wait but it's worth it!

I called this restaurant myself and they acknowledged that they could NOT handle this size group. They would only be able to host a party of 40 in a semi-private area. Have you given thought to the Glasbern Inn in... More
