I have heard good things about Romeo's Kitchen. We chose to go for their Thanksgiving buffet on Oct 13. We were seated quickly and the service was good (not above average or exceptional). However, the buffet was pretty pitiful. As in, not enough food, empty serving bins, sad lumps of things here and there, an NO sweet potatoes at all and NO pumpkin pie!! Also, the turkey did not taste good, it tasted leftover. We were very underwhelmed. The waitress told us it's the first time the restaurant has done a Thanksgiving buffet, so we understand that some problems are to be expected. But overall it was very disappointing. With one beer and one glass of wine our bill was $87 before tip and it was not worth it!

Be sure to ask for a table not adjacent to the operating fireplace and out of the traffic flow of customers and servers. Detracted from overall ambiance and experience.

Everything yummy. Service great. We had a group of 7. OUR table was a bench with chairs which made it difficult to get out. Suggesting not to put a big group on a bench seat with no way out except to move the entire table or everybody.

One could not fault the food however the service left a little to be desired. We had to ask for our wine several times and when it arrived we were not given the opportunity to try it not was the wine poured. Neither were we offered water or our water glasses topped .

Romeo’s was a delight! The food was spectacular. I had the seafood pasta dish and it was so yummy, I probably could have had a second bowl. There was plenty of seafood and the price was very reasonable.
We initially thought we wouldn’t need a reservation as it appeared open when looking on OpenTable but upon getting to the restaurant there was a waiting list. It was faster to then go online and book a reservation than wait, which we did. Appears they have the restaurant separated by sections based on type of seating

enjoyable evening ----- three of us shared three appetizers; mussels, crab cakes, calamari, along with a salad. I also had the chowder ---- all were delectable and the soup was some of the best chowder I have had, with a wide variety of seafood within. The other two diners also talked highly of their meals; one had a lovely salad while the second had a burger and said it was really good.
Our server [ sorry about the name] was terrific.
Nice evening

The only complaint is the service was very very slow, I know it was valentines and all , but we waited along the even between drinks. I don’t know weather you should have had more staff or we just had a bad waitress. I’m pretty sure it was our waitress. We were a long time in between drinks ,

We had a wonderful dinner on valentines. The server was very attentive but not hovering over us. Our food was divine! We ordered the crab boil for two and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
We might recommend with the crab boil that crab forks and picks be provided but we dove in head first anyway! Thank you!

Booked this venue for a birthday party and we were on a tight schedule. Our waiter was amazing, promised we would get our food, drinks and bills in plenty of time for us to make our appointment. Not only was he fast but super pleasant and accommodating to such a large party. Plus with online reservation option made booking a breeze. Would definitely be booking this place again in the future!

Overall good dining experience with good food and friendly staff. The only issue was we made a reservation and were given the worst table location in the restaurant even though there were many better locations available. However the staff were happy to relocate us when we requested it. The other minor thing was when we ordered "Special Coffees" the waitress came back and said there is no whipping cream, do you still want your coffees? We accepted but weren't offered any kind of discount. The Kitchen shouldn't be out of something this simple to have on hand. So staff is friendly but very young and still learning.

A wonderful meal with delightful menu. Our Pud Thai and Chicken Skillet were both excellent as was the house salad. This chef could hold his own in any west coast big city! Ambience? Kinda boring, it's in a hotel lobby with big s green TVs like a sports bar - but there was no taking away from the great food.

Ate there twice on recent stop overs. Went there twice because the food was so good the first time. Bench seats a little soft but the wine selection is good and the food very very tasty. Good value and an easy location for a bunch of local hotels
