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!

Persona is nice restaurant. We usually go to Persona on Saturday and Sunday when we available. The restaurant is warm and peaceful. The waiter and waitress are helpful to take care our need.

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.

Hello Carolyn, I am sorry to hear your recent experience was not exactly what you expected. We definitely have a "lively" crowd for football days. AFC/NFC championship being a major one. Hopefully you give us another shot to blow you away and show you a great time!

My Mother and Sister have always enjoyed Personas Restaurant for their Burgers; I like their flat breads.

On this Occasion we were all disappointed. The Cesaer Salad had days old lettuce which had turned brown.

We brought it to the attention of our waiter/waitress - they said they would take care of it. We heard them discuss the presentation of the Salad with 1 of the Chefs (I think she was Asian) We heard her say "...it was the Holidays". Some excuse. The Restaurant was less than full. The Entre Orders were simple:
2 burgers with bacon, 1 extra curly fries and 1 chicken flat bread; 2 cokes + 1 tea.

The waiter returned to state that they could prepare another Salad which we would be charged for or take it off the Bill. We decided to take it off the Bill as the lettuce in the Burgers were also days old.

We we cannot understand why the Chef saw the lettuce was past its due date in both the Cesaer and the Burgers yet sent it out to us the Customers. The Waiter and Waitress must have also saw the brown lettuce and until we said something was prepared to let it go. Did the Staff think the lights were dim enough that we the patrons would not be able to see the state of the ingredients?

Not a happy Dinner!

What a fun place to meet for drinks/appies before dancing to a great house band. The food was good. The dessert we ordered wasn't great and we mentioned it to our waitress who kindly took it off our bill. Place gets busy around 8/8:30 in anticipation of the band so 7:15 pm was a great time for food and drinks before the band came on. Not a big menu but good things on there to share.

Food was not that good. Steak was a bit over cooked. Also, appetizer came after we finished main dishes, which it never happen in other restaurant. Our server always away, and we need other servers to help instead. A bit upsad for the dinner specially this is our Christmas Eve dinner.

Good was decent. Service was fine till when we were about to pay. The bill seemed higher than expected, so we asked our server to double check for us. Without checking she said “well you guys did order a lot of food”. We were very upset from her reaction and asked for the manager. The manager came and checked for us, gave us a price adjustment for drink specials that weren’t applied. I’m never going back. There’s a bar upstairs of Grand villa that has similar food.

Mark, our server, obviously likes his job :) Awesome service for our lunch.
We went back for dessert and coffee which was nice as well new server and my only complaint is that no one should ever ask "do you need your change?" Horrible way to end a nice time. Of course I need my change.
If a server says "I'll be right back with your change" it is my choice to say, no keep it. Pet peeve and I did the job for 15 years and never, ever used that horrible line on anyone.
Do YOU need your change? Of course we all need it, let it be our choice to give it to a server. Or not.

Personas is one of my favourite places. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve had there, though the cheese and honey flatbread and the chicken and waffles sandwich are my favourites. Seems to be getting busier and busier there, so I’ve taken to making reservations or may not get in.

The food and service were very good. The server and the person who sat us were both very attentive, quick and courteous. The food was very good and great value for the price. The music was loud and the TV screens were bright, large, difficult to avoid and distracting. We probably should have chosen a quieter location where there weren't TVs directly in every line of sight. Also, we went on a rainy day for lunch and there were very few people in the restaurant, which is unusual for this place, in my experience. For the right event, on the right day, with the right company, Personas is one of our go-tos and will remain so.

Went for lunch on a Sunday and the sports TVs were HUGE! The server was attentive and checked on us multiple times but the drinks and food seemed to take a bit longer than they should have, considering the amount of empty tables. A manager checked on our meals to make sure we were satisfied. The quality of the food was good, not outstanding. The cocktail I wanted was not available because they didn’t have a main ingredient and my second choice also had to be modified because they were out of one ingredient, which I thought was a bit weird. Overall I would go back. The happy hour menu especially looked good.
