Go for the ambiance, but be prepared to wait awhile for service. Food is ok but not great. I didn't get what the menu described. But after waiting an hour, I wasn't going to send it back. My friend's soup wasn't hot. No bread on table. Just a lot of little things weren't right.

Lovely atmosphere, great food! A bit expensive, and we wish the menu was a bit bigger, but overall, a great lunch spot

Unfortunately they didn’t log my open table reservation when I came in. As well, they should train the staff re: wine serving/presentation/suggestions better.

after waiting a long time, our food came out cold - we politely let the server know it was cold, and over a 1/2 hr later our plates came back warm-ish. we didn’t complain, but our server went ahead and reduced our bill. just to put into context, we ordered only 2 pasta dishes and a salad and spent over 2 hours in the restaurant due to slow service.

Nice ambience the service was alright but not very attentive and the portions were very small for the prices. We had the ravioli which was delicious but again, small portions and no bread or salad or anything offered with it.

I never write reviews but I think this restaurant really needs some help. Beautiful location but that’s about it. Food horrible service horrible our waiter didn’t know if you had sangria on the menu or not. Like I said I never write reviews and I know how hard it must be for you reading this, I own two bars and I know how hard it is to manage people. But you need some good managers. Good luck
I will still come during the summer for a drink but nothing else.

Salads need some more attention. Lettuce did not appear fresh. Also on the bland side.
Pasta were well cooked and tasty.

The waitress we had could not explain one of the entrees and she brought me the wrong meal. I ended up eating it because it took her so long to get back to us to ask us if the food was good. Unfortunately, I did not get her name. Wine was way overpriced. Would not return unless both of these issues are resolved.

Eh....what started off as a new hot spot seems to be quickly going down hill. Food overpriced and quality not great. Avoid the gluten free pizza - they need to take a lesson from Libretto...

We had a great great night at Posta. The ambience was perfect, the food was exquisite, and the gelato was second only to the best Gelaterias in Italy. Can't wait to go back.

When you walk in, the setup is very well done though the service was subpar considering the price range for this restaurant. Firstly, the server brought bread with vinegar and oil. There was one small basket with five tiny morsels of bread for a table of six. They brought more when asked, I didn't think much of it. The portions were very adequate and when I did not finish my pasta, the server asked if they could have it packed up for me. I said Yes, please. The food never made its way back to the table. Then during dessert orders, she asked if there was an occasion, to which it was remarked that we were celebrating a birthday. she responded with, "great. I'll be right back" the general impression was that something was about to occur but no. She came back and never brought cake or even remarked on the special occasion after that. so I walked out with a very large bill, no leftovers and no cake. I think this place has a lot of potential but the service was terrible.
there are many places with better service where I'd rather spend that kind of money.

My family “celebrated” Mother’s Day at Posta and it was a COMPLETE DISASTER!!! My mother has a gluten and dairy allergy, therefore I called and spoke to the manager three separate times to confirm that they were able to accommodate her.
We went to have a sip of water and noticed the glass was dirty and then we found something black floating in our water. Our drink menu also had disgusting old crusty food stuck on the side!!!

Two of the appetizers we wanted were sold out and after ordering gluten free pasta for my mother, we were told they ran out of gluten free pasta!!!! The manager Raffael (who I spoke to three times prior to our visit) was extremely rude and non apologetic!! The menu says they have gluten free and vegan options which is the primary reason we went there and there’s only ONE pizza on the menu that’s vegan.

We had no choice but to order the one vegan pizza on the menu but when it came out, it was THE WRONG PIZZA!!!

Overall, the WORST experience and worst customer service ever. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!! I would much rather McDonalds over this so called “authentic Italian restaurant”.

It was a disappointing experience. We had booked a Mother’s Day dinner three months ago. We arrived at 5:45 and this Italian restaurant had run out of both Pino Grigio by the glass and the only shareable appetizer. There was no offer to make a substitution even though there were bottles of other Pino Grigio on the menu

The main course was good but our experience had soured by then.

I go to Posta Italbar often and the staff are usually extremely friendly and nice. The manager Salvatore is very accommodating all the time. The only thing I was not happy on my most recent visit is that they were out of a lot of menu items. The waitress was very nice and friendly but seemed lost at times and made some mistakes in the bill. Salvatore was very professional and fixed the mistakes. I will , however, go back because of the amazing food, amazing staff and the beautiful view on the water.

Service was horribly slow and several items on the menu were not available. Considering it was a busy Saturday night and the menu is very limited, it was very disappointing. The conchiglie pescatore was terrible and most items are overpriced. The venue itself is trendy however I would not go back. Overall overpriced, pretentious and doesn’t live up to their own expectations.

Lovely looking restaurant and good ambiance. Unfortunately the food was totally below par. Beet salad was terrible-uncooked beets and stale, old greens with little or no dressing. Had to ask for bread.
The fish was fresh but no flavour. The bed of greens and chickpeas it sat on were totally tasteless.
Definitely food not worth the money and time spent there.

Easter Brunch. It would have been helpful to know that their A la carte menu would not be available. I had an ailing teenage daughter, her gluten free boyfriend and my 78yr old mother for lunch. Neither of whom could fully enjoy the set three course meal like I did.

I have been there about half a dozen times in the last few months.
The first few times the experiences were negative, poor service and mediocre food.
However, the following visits got better. Amazing service. Food good.
Then, the last time I went the service declined once again. No consistency!
