Good food! However, salads are not included with the entrees. I also don’t like when restaurants charge a plate sharing fee. It’s a lot of food!

I understand the restaurant was extremely busy. The food came out lukewarm at best. Service was extremely slow. We had ask for every drink refill. I had to clear the table to get the dirty dishes out from underneath myself. If you’re going to take that many reservations, maybe should bring on extra staff to accommodate for that size of a group! I would come back for a small group night out, but I would think twice before bringing an important large group.

I was there for Mother’s Day.
I was very disappointed. We were placed at a hitop in the bar. I did have a reservation.
I have been to LIBERATORE’S many times in past and was happy with my experience.
Our service this time was rushed and food was cold and lacked flavor

We go to Liberatore’s every few months for a nice meal out with the family. Dante, the owner, is a man unlike any other, working the room and greeting each guest as if he’s known them for years — many whom he has. He came to our table frequently and played a fun game with our kids that resulted in two complimentary desserts for our next visit (which would have been for this visit if we hadn’t already closed out our check), the goal being to get my kids to open up and have fun while there — and he was a magician with them. He had my quiet daughter chattering away by night’s end. We go for the food, ambience, and to support the fine owner who makes the place special. And, this is where we go for every Christmas Eve dinner, too. A+

Two of us went on a crowded Saturday night with a reservation and had only a short wait. You are always made to feel welcome. The Shrimp Scampi and Salmon Nicola were excellent; the portions large. It was quite noisy because of the crowd.

Our waitress was fantastic and the food was great. Although I’ve had good experiences here before, but my most recent visit was one to make me think twice about returning. Not only were we seated in the room clearly designated for large parties, there was one that convened just after we ordered. On top of this already uncomfortable situation, several members of the party commented on how my and my boyfriend’s presence inconvenienced them. This was apparently so much the case that one of the party members approached us and requested that we move tables. I really hope the staff if more considerate to their guests on the future.

The owner Dante was great. Server was above average. Veal was a little tougher then I like. It was a busy Saturday night so food and drinks were a little slower then average. Overall, a nice place with a nice old school Italian ambiance.

Have eaten at this location several times over the years but was a little disappointed with this visit. Service was a little below my expectations and the cream of crab soup was disappointing. The soup kept separating and needed to be stirred consistently to keep the ingredients combined and it tasted like there was raw flour added to it to thicken it. The entrees were on par with expectations. So in conclusion service was average the soup was well below average and the entrees were above average. Hopefully this was a one time experience and not a trend. Will visit again hopefully with a better experience.

Meal missed the mark. Came in for Lobster special Tuesday. Vegetables were mushy and Lobster tough and very over cooked .... crab was ok. Waiter did not ask if we wanted a drink other than water so we didn't order any. Hostess very friendly and person who helped the waiter was very good.

Overall, our main dishes were very good and were generous portions. I had the filet/shrimp kabob special, and my wife had the halibut. My house salad was served too cold and the creamy Italian dressing wasn't very creamy. The bread was 'doughy' and disappointing. I remembered the bread last time being outstanding. My biggest disappointment was the house wine. I had a chianti and a chardonay, my wife had a cabernet. They were okay at best, but when the check arrived, I was dismayed they charged me more than the advertised price from their website. Online, it was $5.95/ glass, but on my check, it was $7.95. Adding tax and tip, and this meant it was at least $10 for each glass. Personally, I'm tired of being overcharged for wines and may become the designated driver in the future. Restaurants should be able to buy decent wines in bulk as their house wine and offer a value to their customers. At least, keep your web site prices consistent with your in-house prices.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. You can dress up or down whatever you prefer. The food and the wait staff is one of the best around including the bartenders, the kitchen staff and of course, Dante, the owner, who will do whatever it takes to make your dining a pleasurable experience. You are always greeted with a huge welcome when you arrive and a thank you when you leave. My husband and I have dined here on several occasions, our latest one being Valentine's Day. Although we did have reservations, it was just as good as any other time of the year and the staff was just as attentive and the food was superb as usual. We have used Liberatore's for their catering services as well and found it to be just as good and will definitely use them again.

Very good service and atmosphere. Prices were reasonable. Appetizer was very good. Main Entrée special (stuffed Lobster tails) were overcooked which detracted from the texture and flavor -- disappointing. Good dessert. Food has generally been better on previous visits.

There was plenty of seating at 5pm on a Friday night but then it got busy quickly after that. I had the eggplant parm which was out of this world. It looked like a lasagna it was stacked so high and you received pasta on the side - Had to take that home as a second meal. The Crab dip was creamy and very tasty. Was very pleased with the meal and the service was fantastic. This was my first visit and will definitely be going again.

Having found Liberatore's about two years ago, we have become regulars. They always greet you like old family friends and they cater to your every need. The food never disappoints and there is always something new to try. The deserts are large with seasonal selections and are as well prepared as the rest of the meal. We've started meeting up with friends there to enjoy a meal and conversation which is easy to do as the background noise allows for everyone to be heard without yelling. If you are tired of chain restaurants and mass market "italian" food and are ready to experience an old school family restaurant with simply flavourful food that you wish you could prepare yourself, then it's time to try Liberatore's.
