Please help - Just read negative review on Scampo. Should I still go on Saturday night or should I go to Sorrelina?

Thanks everyone for your honest opinions. I will stick with Scampo.

Yes, I have looked at Scampo's online menu and it is fine to me but I sure don't want lousy food. Also, reading about the big TV in the room is somehow turning me off from this experience.

Has anyone been to Sorrelina and if so, what do you think? I am looking for something nice but not overly stuffy. Thanks so much.

I have a reservation this Saturday night at Scamp to celebrate my birthday with my husband. I just read the negative review and now I am having second thoughts about going there.

Sorrelina has an opening so should I go there instead?

Where should I go for my birthday dinner in Boston?

Called island Creek but I could not get a reservation.

I love Italian food so I have narrowed down my choices to Prezza, Sorrelina's and Scampo. Which would you recommend or do you have any other suggestions for a nice Italian restaurant?

Thanks so much!

Where should I go for my birthday dinner in Boston?

Tried to make a reservation in the dining room for Island Creek Oyster but they are all booked for prime seating until the middle of March on Saturday nights.

What do you think of Sorrelina?

Where should I go for my birthday dinner in Boston?

My husband would like to take me into Boston to celebrate my birthday. We are in our mid 50's. We eat all types of food. Looking for something nice but not stuffy. Even something fun with great food would be great. Looking to spend up to $40 per entree.

I would even like to do something like Toro but they do not take reservations.

My friend suggested Sorrelina but not sure if it is too expensive and I have read mixed reviews.

Thank you in advance.

Best Chow on the North Shore. Period.

I absolutely love the Blue Ox. Ate there 2 weeks ago. Itwas wonderful. Sixty Two on the Wharf is also very good. I usually go to Jack Tar's every other week since I live in Marblehead. The owners Emily and Scott are terrific and the food is very tasty.

Moving to Marblehead--need chow and food shopping guidance

I live in Marblehead. Hubby and I go to Jack Tar's Restaurant all of the time. Great little out of the way place (near Crosby's market). Great burgers, entrees, wine, etc. The owners are wonderful! Very cozy feeling.

Our favorite Italian restaurant in Marblehead is Pellinos. Great food and ambiance.

Good Dining on the North Shore

I have been eating out so much lately!

Hubby and I usually go to Jack Tar's every other week. We sit at the bar. Love the atmosphere.

The martinis are terrific and their food is always delicious and consistent.

The owners Emily and her husband are always there. Scott is the chef.

Fantastic people.

Best / Favorite 5 restaurants on North Shore??

Went to Pellino's in Marblehead last night. It was fabulous. Declicious breads and oil. I had the Lobster Ravioli.

Newly renovated dining room and bar. Love this place!

Last week we went to Bella Verona in Salem. Declicious pumpkin ravioli. You cannot beat the place for the prices.

Need suggestion for casual restaurant with good food in South End or Back Bay for tomorrow evening

Meeting hubby in Boston tomorrow late in the day. Looking for good casual restaurant in either the South End or Back Bay.

Thinking of Franklin Cafe in South End. Any other suggestions without breaking the bank?

I was also thinking of Toro but I read that it can get very expensive there.

Thanks.

Need help for anniversary dinner in 2 weeks

Last year we had a wonderful anniversary dinner outside on the patio at Hamersley's Bistro.

I asked everyone's opinions this year and came up with the idea of Oleana in Cambridge but husband is not up for trying out their menu.

I booked Hamersley's again and now hubby says he wants to go somewhere else. I thought of Number 9 Park but I think that it is a little more than what we want to spend.

Thought about splitting our dinner between B&G Oysters and the Butch Shop - bad idea?

Any other ideas for nice restaurants in the South End, other areas of Boston or Cambridge?

We like italian, seafood, french.

Thanks so much.

Thanks so much.

Need 2 restaurant suggestions for great food and fun atmosphere

Going to Washington, DC next weekend with hubby.

We will be eating at Jaleo one night.

Need restaurant suggestions for 2 other nights.

Last year we ate at Zaytinya and we loved it but want to try other restaurants.

We like Italian, Seafood, French.

I have never had Indian food but I was thinking of trying Rasika. Hubby is not kean on trying Indian food but said he would check it out if I wanted to go there. What do you think of this restaurant and any food recommendations there?

Looking for great food with fun atmosphere.

Willing to cab it anywhere in the city.

Thanks so much!

Neptune Oyster

Hubby and I ate at Neptune Oyster last night. We were very disappointed. I thought it was overpriced. The food was average to say the least and the portions were very tiny. Glad we tried it but we will not be back again.
