The bartender didn’t know how to make a simple Black Russian. Our drinks took a long time to come out and our meals took forever to come. The children’s meals came about 20 -30 minutes before the adults’ meals. The waitress was friendly, but the service was very slow and sporadic.

This is our 3rd time at Notte since two brothers is under renovation. Every time it’s been great, server is very nice and attentive. My ONLY negative experience was we stood waiting to be seated with a reservation for a while. It seemed the host/hostess was also working the takeout orders which seemed to have priority over reservations. Overall was still a great time!

We went on a Sunday night and we're the only people in the restaurant. This place would probably be good if you eat animal products. They made such a big deal on their website about how accommodating they are for vegetarians and vegans but my only options were fries, brussel sprouts, and a Beyond Burger which I don't care for. No cocktails, just beer and wine. The food was expensive but the service was very good and it's local ingredients. Not bad overall, just after looking at their website I thought they would have more plant-based options so I was bummed out.

I haven't visited the place as frequently as I'd hoped to. With that being said, I highly recommend going. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and other then a draft from a nearby window the atmosphere was wonderful.

Excellent service and staff took strict covid precautions (our server wore gloves and asked for contract tracing info). We felt very safe eating there with our baby. Food was very good- fries portion is large and wings were tasty. Would definitely return!

Clearly in over their head with managing the front end with limited seating capabilities. While I fully empathize and support business trying to survive these COVID times there is really no excuse for the poor customer experience we had. We had a reservation and were told we really shouldn’t have been able to make one through Open Table since it was supposed to be shut down. The host was flustered and overwhelmed by the multi tasking, but even so was moderately attentive (I use moderate generously here). Whomever seemed to be “managing” was horrible. Twice he called us in for our reservation only to leave us standing there unattended to for over 20 minutes each time. He was flustered inefficient, not friendly and generally dismissive. In their defense it was a busy Friday evening, take-out was hopping and they seemed severely short staffed. Had we not been desperate for a good meal (just came off 2 weeks of hiking) we would have left. It was really inexcusable. If unable to handle the crowd they should not have continued to act as if they could. On a good note, the wait staff was pleasant and efficient and the food was good. Probably should have been clued in that this manager was in the wrong profession when we approached the restaurant and he was standing outside talking to someone referencing something on the ground being his underwear he found from last night. Seriously. It’s unfortunate because this place could have a lot going for it. My advice.... stay away until post-COVID or until this manager gets his act together ,and realizes what the term customer experience means.
