Made a 7:15 PM reservation through Open Table. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:15 PM and the hostess confirmed that we , indeed, had a reservation but there were no tables available. I persisted and explained that with a reservation there has to be a table for us. She said she was sorry but they were very busy and so no tables were available. I repeated that what is the point of a reservation if no table is held aside? She said that was simply their policy. I asked how long before a table was ready and she couldn't say. I advised her that I would never patronize this restaurant again and I then called a nearby restaurant (Mon Ami Gabe) and asked if they could accommodate 4 persons and they said no problem. I told the hostess we were leaving but she was too busy talking on the phone. We left and walked quite a distance to the other restaurant.

This incident reflects poorly not only on the restaurant but on Open Table since it is your service that creates the reservation. If they won;t honor reservations made through Open Table then who would use your service.

This is the first time this has ever happen to me and I eat out almost 7 days a week. I use Open Table often to book reservations. Clearly the hostess needs training and this restaurant needs to change their policy and when a reservation is booked the table should be reserved and not given to anyone else but the person who made the reservation.

They were having trouble with their a/c system. But what was really bad was the attitude of the management staff who refused to open the doors to let fresh air in. We begged them (even the tables by the doors!) but they refused. Finally some diners just went and opened the doors. They handled a difficult situation very poorly

We went for our anniversary and have dined a half dozen times over the year here. We dine a lot and always like the wine pairing suggestion and our selection with the comfort food in a smaller "lettuce restaurant" setting …….. great place to enjoy a hour and a half meal together. Food is excellent, especially the Risotto options

I love Antico Posto. I always order the same thing -- eggplant parmesan -- but the people I am with all enjoy what they order. The servers are attentive. Another nice thing is that they will seat you before the whole party has arrived.

Calamari was great. I appreciated the 3 oz wine choice without paying more. Service was great. Everyone enjoyed the food and the desert. The only area this restaurant could improve on is the menu selection and the addition of a choice beyond ala carte(soup or salad offering with pasta). But having the bread and dipping tray was a good hold me over as well.

Haven’t been here for several years and decided to give it a try once more. The chicken piccata had a good sauce but the chicken was tough, dry and possibly overcooked. We split a Caesar salad and strangely mine look like a Caesar salad and my husbands looked entirely different, not sure what happened there. We stopped coming here because it was always freezing cold winter, spring, summer and fall. So at least the temp was at a comfortable level while we were there. Not the place to go if you’re trying to have a catch-up conversation or visit with friends much too loud.
