Great space, with equally great food, drinks and service. I highly recommend Riondo's for cocktails, a light bite (great happy hour specials) or for a full meal. The old vault (both doors are still present, but a wall was taken out) is great for small...More

Shocked by our bill. Dinner for a family of 3 cost us $120. My husband and I ordered one of the daily “specials” our waiter told us about which are not priced on the menu. My halibut and his salmon ravioli ended up costing nearly...More

We came here last year and it was wonderful. This year, the service is still outstanding, but the meal was just blah. The special, not priced, was $50!! The wind, not priced, was $55. Neither was worth it. The Crab pasta dish was tasteless, and...More
