We had a superb Father’s Day experience. We went on Sunday night kids eat free & live music! Can’t beat that! We’ll definitely be returning!

The food was fine, but the mixed drinks were overpriced and awful. The pizza looked good; I regretted having ordered something else. Marguerita tasted like it was from a premixed bottle. Appetizer portions were small. Overpriced.

Fun and relaxed, outdoor seating on a lovely evening was great. The host and server were super. Strange to have a veggie burger on the menu but not make it vegan.

We were able to sit outside. Noise level was OK. Salad, main courses and dessert were very good. It's one of our favorite spots, especially if we can sit outside.

I was pretty nervous (I get that way around pretty girls) so I put too much ketchup on my burger and spilled water everywhere. I told her I want to be cremated and have my ashes fed to people which may have been the reason she left halfway through the dinner and said it wasn’t going to work out between us.

The food and service was phenomenal though, would recommend!

I don’t want to die alone

It was my first visit and I loved it! The food and beer were great. The portions were perfect. The atmosphere very friendly and lively. It would have been nice - but I may be quibbling - if the live music weren't quite so loud. All said, I'll definitely go back.

It kills me to leave anything but a high review, I’ve always loved Bella Luna. This last experience was very disappointing. There was a private event going on in the lounge area, but I don’t think that excuses our terrible service. The waiter did not check on our water/drink needs, every time we asked for something it took at least 10-15 minutes to arrive. I hope this was only a one-time experience. Still love the food, beer and vibe though.

We love going to Bella as its good food and in our neighborhood. But when you really think about it, it's a very expensive place to go out to. A burger averages $18??? And entrees over $20. I feel like we spend a fortune every time. Husband had a cocktail off the specials and definitely not worth spending. We'll keep coming back of course but question something each time.

Our table was ready when we arrived. The ambiance was really nice. Dim and comfy. The waitress was nice. We loved drawing on the paper tablecloths. It was my friend's birthday and they came out and sang happy birthday to her, with dessert and candle. She was totally embarrassed. It was great! LOL! There was a dj there playing music and we were singing and dancing whilst we enjoyed our meal. We had a great night.

We love Bella Luna and really want to enjoy ourselves there but they really do seem to have a problem with service. Every time we go we wait and wait and wait for a server to greet us or take an order (or both) and once we get our food, we almost never see anyone again (either that or they "check in" before we've had a chance to take a bite or consider another drink). We LOVE that it's so family friendly, we LOVE the live music and we love the overall friendliness of the atmosphere and place. We just would LOVE to have a second drink occasionally...

I like getting the email news updates about the specials that week but I also like some standby favorites like the kale salad. This time I tried the chicken sandwich and loved the spicy sauce on it.
