    This was our 2nd visit to IBN. I was extremely disappointed with the Scoglio that I had as my main course. It took us over a month to get a reservation and I was underwhelmed. I am sorry to say that I am not sure if I would rush to come back.

    Our favorite celebration restaurant, the food is always amazing, a mature environment, great service and expertly prepared cocktails. I did notice the portion sizes were smaller than our previous visits, however we both left a little too full and with grins on our faces so no big deal.

    The only added comment I would make is the appetizer for two - with focciachia bread, only had one piece of bread ( could have used two) for the amount of tomato & goat cheese. The server, Elizabeth, was terrific. She gave great menu suggestions, provided additional information when asked, and was very pleasant. We’ll be back.

    I loved the ambience at IBN when they put the barriers up between tables. It made the experience more quint and less like you are eating in a cafeteria. I was very dissappointed to see that the barriers have been taken down to make more room for more tables I assume which I understand making more money but at what cost? This was one of my favorite restaurants and last night it was so noisy and the ambiance was lost. The food of course was amazing, as per usual, but the business of the place also slowed down the service. My suggestion is to put the barriers back up

    It was our first time there and won’t be our last. To start we had the calamari, it was delicious. I got the PARMIGIANA DI POLLO, the chicken was thick and cooked to perfection, over all portion was enough for two meals. My husband had the PENNE CARBONARA CAPESANTE, scallops were large and tasted amazing, he said the dish was fantastic. 10/10 recommend.

    We were disappointed compared to prior meals here. The scallop carbonara was not nearly as flavourful as we remembered. We asked about bread to accompany it and were told they stopped serving it as it was usually going to waste, but she agreed to bring us some. We were disappointed to see a $4 charge for this on our bill, seemed petty.

    Servers were very prompt once seated. Timing from drinks, to appetizers, to main was excellent. Ample time to finish apps and receive the main promptly. New server was being trained by a very experienced server. Both were very pleasant and excellent guidance was given by the experienced server. Trainee did an excellent job! Food was delicious and cooked perfectly! Noise level started to increase but was from an adjacent bar. Not loud enough to diminish discussion but slightly annoying when trying to enjoy the meal and atmosphere. Definitely will be back and will recommend to others! Thank you for everything!

    We regularly visit IBN and always enjoy our meal. We had company visiting that attended dinner with. We waited 90 mins for our meal. One chicken dish was not cooked enough and a med well steak had blood on the plate. We had not much time after eating our meal and were asked to leave for the next seating. The restaurant was not full and there were many empty tables….. it’s not like we were at a window table - we were at the back. Very disappointed with our visit and we’re kind of embarrassed after bragging the restaurant up. Company did not want to send the meal back as we waited so long for it in the first place - they ate around the uncooked portion.

    We had a most excellent Valentine's day dinner with our children and their partners. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions regarding entrees. And with six of us to serve, there was little wait time. The atmosphere was lovely and we had a memorable evening. I recommend it to everyone!

    We have eaten here numerous times. Everything was delicious and the ambience and service was great. The only feedback is I regards to the gentleman that was looking after topping up our water and clearing the table. He was very professional and efficient, but had a very strong body odor that was not pleasant.
