oh boy..what a shame this could've been a great restaurant! – 1st-sauce is FANTASTIC!!!!!
2nd-too unstable of overall food quality and servers, so many chances we gave them too!!!
3rd-I think the owner hates her customers, she behaves at times like a child, we walked in, she was stressed, obviously, grabbed 2 menus, threw them down on the table and huffed away...ah ok...we are sorry for dining here.
4- will never be back....and it is a shame, I LOVE THE SAUCE!!! I may call Chef Ramsey, to see if he can help her out!
Dissapointed – Its been 4 years since I was there last eating spaghetti. It
was OK. Last Saturday night there was hardly a crowd. We went there for pizza. The pizza was soggy, besides being undercooked. i like crunchy pizza. There was no way you could hold it with one hand. We had to use forks. The cheap metal forks bent cutting the soggy pizza. Service was OK but not special.
Never Again – From the reviews of the owner, we experienced it 1st hand this evening.
Gave a guy our name he said it was a ten minute wait. The owner comes out starts taking names without adding to the list the guy was using. At this point we;ve waited almost 20 mintes and we start seeing other people get seated I finally ask her how long and she says we're not on the list, there were probally 6 or 7 names on the list (WAITING IN FRONT OF HER) she wasn't using. No apology just bitches about "this is why I'm getting divorced".
A table opens up in the bar at this point we're next on the list anyway so we ask the bartender if we could sit there.
Someone gave us menus & took our drink order then the Owner lady comes out what are you sitting there for I didn't call your name, blah blah blah, you just can't sit there.
At this point we left, I told her we've been here over 40 times to eat plus takeout, we're done, you don't give a rats-ass about your patrons.
I will drive the extra 20 minutes to get italian near my house than go here in the future.
Great Food – Linguinis has to be my favorite Italian place to eat...The dinners are huge, the breadsticks are by far the best in town, and the service is not fast, but well worth the wait.....Not very busy, no waiting to get a table.....Theres not much more to ask for....Be sure to try this place...We go often and never have any problems...
Never had a problem – We've gone here on many occasions at various times of the day. Lunch, dinner, pizza, apps, all good.
Last visit was on Mother's day. Arrived without reservations and had about a 20 minute wait. That was painful only because of the shrieking 4 year old in the waiting area.
Wife had eggplant parm, son had herb crusted pork chops and I had the Italian calzone. All were excellent, and considering how busy they were, served hot and within a resonable time. Waiter, like most of the wait staff we've encountered, personable and accomodating.
We've taken other family members for birthdays, holidays, etc. We've gone with friends just to go. Always left feeling satisfied, happy and carring home some left-overs.
Will continue to go and continue to recommend to others.
Wow. – After reading all of the previous reviews, I have concluded that the Owner must show up only for the dinner hours (perhaps the medications keep her sedated, and away from the restaurant, during the day???).
We have only ever been there for lunch and have never been subjected to the situations as described in these other reviews. The sandwiches are very good, a bit pricey perhaps, but they are huge and can easily make 2 meals for me (husband is a trouper and plows through it all).
The pizza is also excellent.
We have observed the occasional "disappearing" of a waitress, or erroneous charges on the bill (removed when noted), but lunches have been fairly calm there. Keeping my fingers crossed...
good pizza and wonderful atmosphere – Ihave had their pizza and various orders of pasta all of which were wonderful. The atmosphere is like a movie set or a disney world ride because it looks like you are in a courtyard in Italy and is very quiet and the restaurant has a lot of space and you will never feel crowded. I love the food but was disappointed a few weeks a go when I called and asked what time they woyld be done seating people and she said 9pm. we showed up at 8:45 and were told that they were done seating for the night and we went to Olive Garden (which sad to say was not anything compared to this restaurant).
Please do not eat here! – Please don't every go here. My family and I had the unfortunate experience of eating here on Friday, 5/23/08. The service and food were terrible. The bread was burned, and our waitress disappeared for 50 minutes. When I complained to the first of three people who introduced themselves to me as "the manager", our now cold and tasteless food arrived. My $16.95 entree ended up costing over $20 because the salad and pasta were extra charges, even though the menu clearly listed them as being included. No matter how hard I tried, "the manager" would not remove the additional cost. The waitress's attitude went from bad to worse and, of course, after complaining about the delay, she practically threw our plates on the table to us. Do not eat here!
RIDICLOUS!!!!!!!!!! – Owner Rude,Obnoxious.Pizza sad to say the best we have had in a long time! I guess I am sad to sad it is the best because we will NEVER return to this horrifically run establishment.Upon our first impression thing were good.We arrived around 7 on a Sat night to only have a 20-min wait we were pleased.The hostess (later found out to be the OWNER???) yelled out our name and the name of another party.Well, much to the delight of my husband and Niece we were sat right next to the Pizza oven.As we sat and watch many, many Pizza roll out of that wonderfully smelling Pizza oven.We also watch too much shock and dismay an argument between the owner and the pizza maker (what servers gladly told us was her boyfriend).This was not any normal argument.In the middle of a PACKED! Dining room the owner and pizza maker screamed and swore at each other.The profanity was not you ever day oops.This was the foulest ridiculous exchange of words 2 people have ever had. As I sit there with my 9 year old niece and let my jaw drop I did not know whether I should say something or f I should cover her ears.Well the awful twosome decided to take it in the back and just at that time our server brought over the Appetizer.I explained to him the exchange that just took place and he (by the way fantastic at his job.Just sad he works for such an OGRE!)Apologized profusely.He tried everything to make the evening better.However his attempts went noticed but blinded by the intolerable continuous BANGING,TEMPER TANTRUM the boyfriend was having for the rest of the evening. As we looked around the restaurant at the other patrons you could see other table getting as disgusted as we were.As another table return their own pizza to the pizza guy because it was not cooked properly.I watched the owner with UNWASHED hands pick up the pizza.She then had the boyfriend PUT THE SAME pizza back in the oven to finish cooking and then return it to the table.Well at that point we were done.This is the worst experience!!!
Owner RUINED Business – I am embarrassed to say that I recommended Linguini?s to friends, family and even strangers. The manager/owner is the rudest person alive. She is out of control. My first 5 visits to Linguini?s at there present location were fantastic. Service, food, atmosphere all fantastic.
But something went wrong January 07. Service horrible, atmosphere horrible. Pizza made with wrong ingredients. Waiters and bus people were being pushed to clean up for the evening. It was a Friday night a little after 8:30 when we arrived. Ordered a pizza with peppers and received hot peppers. Couldn?t even eat the pizza. And our favorite waiter was gone. Fired because he came in late.
We did come back 3 more times. Every time bad management. The last straw was Early January 08. About 7 in the evening. We sat in the bar area to catch a glimpse of the Pen's game as well as grab a bite to eat. The owner/manager was yelling and banging different things. One of her comments was "if I took it out of your pay you wouldn't do that". I was appalled. We were not the only customers in the bar area or the main restaurant. Poor employee. Eventually she came over to our booth grabbing the place settings from the table behind us. She slammed the settings on the table and then slammed the menus on top. She then stated "I hope the table is clean". We sat there in shock, afraid to move. The waitress came and greeted us and we were still in shock. She assured us everything would be okay and we should stay. We were hungry and missed there food. Food was good. Waitress was wonderful. Owner/manager should quit. I will never go back. I am now telling others not to go there. I have even mentioned the situation to employees at the nearby Sam's club where Linguini?s and the owner/manager are the business of the month. What a shame.
