First impression handicap parking a long way from the wheel chair ramp and you have to walk up a long hill to get to the restaurant. Options for substitutions limited. The serving of the seafood linguini was so small it covered only 20% or so of the plate and the small piece of garlic toast was burnt. You have to read the menu very closely as they have changed the name of rose sauce to "Arora" sauce with no explanation from the waitress. The flavor of the meal did not make up for the small quantity. I highly recommend that anyone who is disabled look for another place to eat.

Our waitress made this visit better than average. Appreciated the humour and the food was delicious. I had the Cotton Candy Cosmo, and it was a memorable cocktail. I'd love to upload the photo because it was excellence, but your system doesn't seem to take a tiny jpg. Anyhow, it was a nice experience and to our waitress - we thank you. Great service.

My friend and I went for lunch on Tuesday and had a fantastic meal, outstanding service and a wonderful visit. The bonus was that it was Happy Hour all day Tuesday, and the food was not only beautifully prepared and delicious, but also cheap as anything. A couple of our lunchtime favorites are the Tomato soup and grilled cheese and the flatbreads. Yum, We’ve been there several times before Covid and will go back again time and time again. We ate inside this time but the patio is open and very spacious. I highly recommend Personas!

All was good except the waiter ordered us the wrong drink. When we told him about it he said it was good we would only have to pay for what we had ordered in the first place. Not so. At the end of the night he charged for the drink which was about 4 bucks more. I think I should have said something to the manager. Jeez got away with it this time but not the next time!

First time there. We had a great time. The band was amazing and we enjoyed the scene. The only part we would have cause for complaint was the food and the service. Of the three dishes we ordered, only one was very good. As for service, it was good at first then scarce and then none as it got busier and the night went on. The first server we had was truly wonderful but she was off shift almost immediately after she started with us and we had to pay and a new server took over - also very very nice, but hardly ever around. We had to hunt her down to get another drink and, later, to pay our bill. We will go back again, though, for the music. Thank you for everything.

The reservation definitely helped in cutting the wait time. Unfortunately it was some NFL game special the day we were there so the table set up was very cramped. Chairs were back to back and diners at table behind need to get out so others could get in. Very uncomfortable. Very noisy too since those portable tables were right next to the stage and big screen.

Food was average. The pasta I had was too dry and too al dente. The burger always seemed to be a safe choice. The poke bowl was also not that great. Service was so so. They tend to forget you if you did not order any alcoholic drink.

It is still a good place to dine if you are in the area. Order the burger. Just make reservation first.
