    We had a reservation for 3 people, the restaurant was not busy and there were a large amount of clear tables available. However, we were told that there was a large walk-in group apparently which had took presidency over our reservation, not to mention we were guests of the hotel. We stood at the counter for over 10 mins; we were told to wait a few mins and we would be sat but we weren’t. Even though there were plenty of tables available? We eventually just walked away and went else where. Really poor service.

    The food is amazing! It seems random to have such a great restaurant at a hotel but the Chef and Asst Chef (not sure of formal title) are amazing! We started with the warm Caprese dish. It’s not a “salad” but a delicious flavorful light but large dish. We also had the meatballs with polenta. Perfectly cooked and not dried out at all. We had the Rib-eye and the Halibut. Both cooked to perfection. Not over cooked for either which happens so frequently. Then of course, we ended with the peanut butter mousse. To die for! Go meet the Chef when you visit. He is lovely!

    This was an anniversary dinner and we have been looking for a restaurant like this for some time, an ambiance that is both elegant and quiet. (Why do so many modern restaurants have such a loud, raucous dining room?) The service was impeccable and the food very, very good. Our steak was one of the best we have had, better than some well-known steak restaurants charging more. We had to split a steak as neither of us could eat a 14 oz. steak by ourselves. We will return.

    Made a reservation for 6pm on a Tuesday. When we arrived they told us that they were closing at 6:30 and weren't serving dinner. Staff was helpful and empathetic, but we left hungry.

    I made reservations a month prior to visiting. The day before my reservation, I got an email to confirm that I will still be attending. I confirmed that I will still be there, however when I arrived for my reservation on Sunday evening, the manager said that the restaurants kitchen was closed due to remaking their menu. (Strike 1) Next, it turned out to be a buffet style with limited options, cold chicken, dry noodles, tough veil meat and packaged desserts (strike 2). After that, it turned out to be almost $40 per person (strike 3) Highly disappointed. Not a good way to spend my money. I specifically chose this hotel because of the restaurant and reviews it had. Servers were kind and understanding, but the restaurant should have communicated better.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this restaurant. It was a date night for my girlfriend and I. The food was good for the price and the atmosphere was very elegant. I highly recommend for a relaxed casual date night.

    We waited two hours to get our meals and one to get glasses with water on our table. People-friendly food is good. They only have one person in the kitchen and two waiters. They took out our plate before with finish our food. They shall hire more people to take care of the clients.

    The food was Absolutely Fantastic. Probably the best Sea Bass ever and the pasta dishes were delicious! The ambience and decor was very nice, as is the entire Legacy Hotel & Conference Center where it is located. Unfortunately the service was very slow and appeared to be understaffed. Possibly this was because of the concert event that was happening. I would definitely recommend to give them a try.

    The food was excellent but one person did NOT GET HER SOUP AND SALAD until the rest of us were almost done it was awful for her and upsetting. Our waitress pretty much ignored us after we complained. We WAITED OVER AN HOUR FOR OUR FOOD 😡Very sad but my fettuccine was superb♥️

    Theresa's Italian RestaurantResponded on November 17, 2020Thank you for taking the time to write us this review. This is absolutely not with our standard. We will look into it and make sure that this will not happen again.

    The waiter /ambiance was wonderful but the martinis were very poor for the 15.00 charged and the food was overall fair at best. Disappointing meal for the money.
