    Very poor experience. Waited 15 minutes for any kind acknowledgment that we were there. Finally someone comes over unapologetic saying she was our server. At that point we just left and headed to Jack Astors for dinner.

    We ordered the chicken fettuccine. The portions were very small and there was barely any chicken. However the flavor was good. The ceasar salad was lacking enough dressing.

    Great food and service. Server was attentive, kept checking if we needed anything. Our table had the chicken parm, 4 meat pizza and chicken amatriciana. Everyone enjoyed their food. The caesar salad was very good and came with a surprising amount of bacon.

    Very disappointed in my reservation. I thought making a reservation (for 8 people) would make sure we had a table that was in a good location for my daughters 30th birthday and instead we were sat right beside the kitchen, so disappointed. Our table wasn’t even ready when we got there and we had to wait which shouldn’t happen when there is a reservation. The food was great but this night started off on such a sour note, not sure that we would choose East Side for a birthday celebration again. We didn’t get bread right away when asked and my grandsons dessert was completely forgotten about. We spent almost $200 but expected more.

    The food was okay, but the noise level in the restaurant was way too high. It sounded as though they were piping in customer and kids chat and laughter. The servers, however, were very friendly and attentive. It isn't likely we will eat there again.

    Service was extremely slow. Timing of food was terrible. Apps, bread, soup and salad all came out at the same time as the dinners. Once our dinners were served no one ever came back to see if we needed anything. We did need drink refills and napkins and would have appreciated the opportunity to order a second soup or salad. We were there for our daughter's birthday and all the kids got their dessert well before the cake came out for the birthday girl and then the dessert we ordered came out even later, well after all the kids were done their desserts. Server was friendly, food was good. Timing was really bad.

    Typical dining experience except for the a/c dripping on us during our meal which required us relocating. Did realize this location pales in comparison to at least one other ESM restaurant. Thought they’d all be the same but it seems at least one other was much better. Still, this location is generally consistent and makes the family happy when they’re looking for pasta. Not having high expectations makes this restaurant one of our usuals.

    Soup and salad are brought in smaller bowls even though it's unlimited I'd rather get the bigger bowls so I don't have to ask for more. Especially when they are busy and waitress isn't around. Didn't have bread ready. Had to wait for long time before first and second loaf arrived. Didn't bring cheese with her so had to wait for her to come back and ask for it. Only 2 crayons left. Had three kids w me.

    Great service, seated fast but table wasn't good. Stuck in a corner on a high table, but when requested a different table was accommodated with no problem. Food was good. It was quite loud with a lot of young children dining with families but overall a good evening.

    Had a dinner and a movie date on Friday night and couldn’t be happier with our restaurant choice. We were feeling for pasta and oh boy did this exceed our expectations! Didn’t get any photos of the food because of how quick we dived into our plates but I highly recommend booking this spot for a casual meal. Great service from the waiters. PS- I am a sucker for fun cocktails, and East Side has super affordable beverage prices!!
