Food was nice. They were very understanding of all the children in our party. Great beef ravioli's, I could tell top beef was used for the ravioli's.

Finbar's once was a real gem but it has transcended into deep mediocrity. The atmosphere is depressing. Large and cavernous and cold. The pasta dishes are satisfying but are often served lukewarm. I do love the spaghetti and meatballs (big, tasty meatballs) and the BBQ chicken pizza is very good. The Tuscan salad is excellent. Steaks should be avoided (chewy) and the nut-crusted salmon dishes are overly fishy (and I love salmon). This used to be a wonderful restaurant but the kitchen can't seem to get it together. Bar does a lively business but the lounge is almost always empty. I wish the owner would make a concerted effort to improve the food. In the meantime I recommend getting carry-out from Angelo's deli on Main Street.

Food took an extreme amount of time to prepare, and it wasn't even tasty. The messed up the order and didn't even offer a discount after bringing one of the people in our party cold food. This was my 2nd and last experience at this restaurant. Can't figure out why they are still in business.

was not very impressed! My husband had the lasagna (which he enjoyed) and i had the penne with sausage and peppers. They make the pasta with what they call their sunday gravy which is a sauce that has been simmering all day with the sausage and meatballs....well with my penne pasta it had barely any sauce at all. It was thin and most of the noodles were cold and dry. Also the bread they serve is gross! It was a slice of bread they cut in 4 strips and slathered butter on it. Not very italian like!
