We always come to Molinari's for special occasions because of the gourmet food and elegant atmosphere. We have always ordered from the daily "specials" (especially seafood) and have never been disappointed!

I think it's so sad how the young adult changed settings of fine dining, operas etc.. there is very few dress requirements in this world anymore. But the dining is still the same as in fantastic food and drink! Highly recommened.

We had not been to Molinari's for many years and suggested we go for dinner with friends. It was so good the first time, I still remembered what I ate. We started off with a hostess who didn't even know they served liquor. We waited 25 minutes to order drinks which were unattractively served. We were at the table for... More

This Italian restaurant has an interesting menu that goes beyond traditional Italian fare. Those in our party who had a pasta dish thoroughly enjoyed it. Portions were large enough that most took leftovers home. There was an extensive menu of specials that all sounded interesting. I had salmon in a lovely sauce and garnished with pickled onions that added depth... More

We have been patrons of Molinari's for many years and are always impressed with the total experience. The menu is well thought out with many enticing regular offerings and a cornucopia of inviting specials. Every time we've dined there (and I do mean every!) we have been completely pleased with every aspect of our meals. The service is always impeccable.... More

What a great experience!! I rarely rate a place with 5 stars but this restaurant is absolutely worth it! From the fantastic wine selection, to the great starters en delicious mains and dessert. Our waitress was an absolute delight and no request was too big or small. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody!

The Food is Very good, it is pricey, but the food is great. If you care about the taste and quality of your food, then this will be a place to eat. The staff (server) was not the nicest, I could not tell if she was having a bad day or if she was arrogant. There seems to be a... More

My family and I dined here to celebrate many successes during the year. We were met with poor service and then added on a manager who pretty much didn't care that we had had poor service. We waited over an hour and a half for dinner. At 9 o'clock at night we decided it was time to say good night.... More
