Sunday night service was very slow...at least for us. We arrived at 7pm, and closed the place, kind of getting kicked out at 10pm. Bread basket and spreads are very good, and our salads were fresh & tasty. It took forever for our 4 entrees...More

Made a reservation to celebrate a birthday and since we have been about 4 times, we were not disappointed in the quality of the food, the waitstaff were very attentive and great explaining various dishes.

Properly cooked, seasoned, served - nothing else to do but enjoy the meal and wonder if the other person's meal might be tastier - and then try to steal a taste. At one end of the strip - best to go when most of the...More

Not great for the solo traveller, the hostess tried to seat me at a large table far away from other diners and out of sight it felt like. I requested and was given an alternate table. The aircon is freezing and chilled the food. Servers...More

My husband and I recently had dinner at Lidia's and the first impression was WOW! The restaurant is absolutely beautiful inside! We started out with an appetizer of bruschetta. It's a good thing we shared it, because there were two huge portions. It was excellent!...More
