Upon entering the restaurant, the first thing you saw was a big TV over the bar. It reminded me of a sports bar. Wasn't sure what to expect. This was our 25th anniversary outing. We were situated at a table about 1/3 of the way into the restaurant. Our server was excellent. Did not rush us at all even though he was very busy. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was nice. Some patrons were in business suits while others were in jeans and t-shirts. All in all, we enjoyed our evening out and would probably return to this restaurant. Because we are not from the area, we used other online reviews and recommendations in choosing 147 for our anniversary.

Everything was great except the service was very poor. We waited for everything. The wine took forever and one of us ordering a beer had to ask for it twice. We requested bread twice and our waitress spend most of the time chatting with people. Our food came a different times. Great food but we won't be back with service that poor.

My second time at 147 and my mother's first. We both had an amazing dinner; fabulous bread, split the Caesar salad (the best ever) and enjoyed our veal entrees. She had the marsala, I had the loin. Excellent cook on both and very amazing service. Great wine recommendation as well! Was surprised with the choice but paired excellently with both our meals.

Would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.

We started with a Caesar salad and mussels. Both were very tasty and both are large enough to share...I then had the pan fried salmon and my husband had the rib-eye steak special. My salmon was over cooked and very dry. One might argue that you don't get fish in an Italian restaurant; you get pasta! But in my experience fish of any kind is usually a safe bet. This however, was not the case. The steak was cooked fine but it came with a blue cheese demi-glaze for dipping and my husband didn't like the taste of it.
Overall, the appetizers were excellent; the service was excellent and the atmosphere was excellent! We will return, but I'll probably stick to pasta next time!

Dinner was great. It was a busy night and our server seemed to forget about us but made up for it as the evening progressed. This was my second visit and I will be going back.

This was my second time at the restaurant and unfortunately I probably won’t be back. There were quite a few mix-ups with our food orders, i.e. over cooked steaks that were inedible and dishes with bacon being served to vegetarians. Our server was an over-sharer and talked far too often about her personal life.

The food was good, the drinks were great, the service was friendly and prompt. We had the charcuterie board, bread, a flatbread, pasta, chicken, and salad - all delicious. I had a belini and an Italian breeze cocktail. Our server was very knowledgeable and polite. Ambiance was intimate but not stuffy.

The only detraction was that a middle-aged gentleman (I presume the owner?) was at the bar, enjoying a drink with his family (wife and three kids). He was interacting with all the staff, getting up and going to the window where all the food was being prepared, given instructions to wait staff - in his sweatpants. It's a nice place and you own it - why are you there in your gym clothes? It was weird for such a nice place...

Antipasto was great. Chicken Parm was the same as any road house. Slow to clear table. Too much spaghetti not enough sauce. Not quite a medium fine dine with medium fine dine prices.

We love, love, love 147. We've become semi-regulars, dining at 147 once every month or two. Staff remember us and welcome us every time, which makes us feel special. A nice addition to a great meal and friendly service.

We were really happy with our dining experience at 147. From the bread basket, which has the best bread I have ever tasted, to the main course, which was generous in portion and delicious..we were completely happy. Our only suggestion for anyone dining there is to ask to be seated away from the area that looks into the kitchen. It can be awkward with serving staff and managers hanging around waiting for food because it's a tight space. It felt a little like you were in a hallway. There are many other tables with great views though. The only tip I would give to the management is to make sure that the quality of the cocktails fit the price. My guy ordered a peach bellini for $12 and it came in a really tiny champagne glass. We felt a little ripped off there but otherwise...a really nice evening.

Atmosphere is quite nice, decor is welcoming although our table was next to a hutch where supplies are kept so it was a little busy with traffic from servers.
Service is top notch and very friendly, attentive.
Food portions are huge even with my appetite I couldn’t finish anything I ordered.
Food quality is decent it’s just not outstanding, price is very reasonable for portion size.
