    As always, the staff at the Renaissance are fantastic! They are matched by the wonderful, high quality food they serve! One of the staff ran into my wife early yesterday and told her about the amazing special for last night so she called me and said “Make a reservation for tonight!” So we hadn’t planned to have a date night but we went and had a great time!

    I had looked at their menu prior to going online. When we got there, not only did they not have what I wanted they had listed, but an equivalent was much more expensive. Food I did have was excellent. Just disappointed in the disparity. It felt like a bait and switch, which tainted my experience.

    We had a great evening. The food was phenomenal. The service could not have been better. We asked about vegetarian options. They made us a special vegetarian appetizer plate and a wonderful vegetarian entrée. We've had the good fortune of dining in great restaurants from San Diego to New York City and Renaissance Cafe is as good a dining experience as we have had anywhere.

    Good selection for Italian leaning entrees, appetizers and salads. Desserts were offered but passed. Suggest updating their menu on OpenTable as selection and pricing were from quite a while ago.

    Outstanding food. I love to enjoy a great meal without being rushed. My husband and I enjoy every bite of the meal in a relaxed atmosphere. There is always a great wine recommendation to pair with the meal. Dessert: the perfect size. The chocolate cheesecake is sinfully delicious. Will be back soon!

    We eat here frequently when we want a dining experience and we are never disappointed! Doug, our normal waiter, is fantastic with help on libations, food and humor to keep us laughing! When we don’t have Doug, it is still great because all the staff are really friendly and knowledgeable. We have recommended the Renaissance to many of our friends!

    We have eaten at Renaissance before, this night the food was not quite as good. Also, the waiter was polite, but I would have been more comfortable if he had looked me in the eye when speaking to me, rather than at the table.

    Our group last went just before Covid closed everything. I don't know how, but we had forgotten how good the food was! I chose the venue because it was my birthday on the 25th. We were all so glad we came! Our server was excellent. Thank you all so much

    Our evening was wonderful. The staff was energetic , knowledgeable and the service was great. The food was amazing. My only comment would be that my spaghetti carbonara was a little dry and could have used a splash of pasta water, but the flavor was great. We will come back.
