Chris Family Restaurant (Allentown)

I went their for dinner solo and enjoyed their Pastacia Dinner special. Came with a delicious chicken orzo soup and a Greek Salad for $9.95. Went the next night for take-out for two people. We had chicken noodle soup and pork and sauerkraut dish. Bothe very good and reasonably priced. It is a nice family place with very good food and service.

Panera - like the food, not the cleanliness

We've stopped at Panera Bread in N.Y, CT, DE and PA. Definitely enjoy their food- sandwiches, salads and soups. Virtually every visit, either their kitchen work area floor and/or the dining area floor rug have big cleanliness issues. Their seems to be little urgency on the part of the staff to keep these areas clean. Very perplexing since the rest of the operation seems well run. Will make me hesitate to continue patronizing them.

Cake Sized Black and White Cookie - Eastern Nassau or Western Suffolk County

Try Simons Beach Bakery in Westhampton Beach - they have an excellent reputation for them.

Feedback please Lucky Pelican, Sarasota

Thanks Irwin and VaPaula for your comments. I'm reporting back on our recent visit. Atmosphere is a casual, noisy restaurant adjoining the fish market. My wife and I each had a drink, appetizer, entree and dessert for $100 including gratuity. Appetizers were oysters parmigiana - fantastic - and bbq bacon wrapped scallops -good. Two excellent entrees were red snapper and flounder - both were specials. Dessert were a good brownie ice cream sundae and a banana dessert with Cream and a shortbread cookie base - may be the best dessert I have ever had! Would definitely return!

Need restaurant near La Quinta, Ocala, FL for dinner

Thanks for the suggestion. Checked their website didn't see delivery info. We wanted to just eat in our room - traveling with our dog - so we ordered from DanZano Pizza and it was very, very good. Delivered promptly, with plates, silverware,etc and piping hot. Also had a nice Greek Salad with it.

Would like recent feedback on Beach Bistro (Holmes Beach)

We arrived at the restaurant a little early for our reservation and were seated right away at a great table overlooking the water. Restaurant atmosphere and decor has a warm, comfortable feeling.
Drinks were excellently prepared. We went for the Tasting Menu - 5 courses for $100- per person. First course we decided on was the Bistro Blue Tomato Soup which we both enjoyed. The second course we selected the Caesar Salad which I don't like that dry, I prefer a lot more dressing mixed in. My wife likes it the style that they served but thought it was unremarkable. For the third course we picked the Floribbean Grouper. nice size portion and it was super. Coconut cashew crust and a red pepper papaya jam. The fourth course we selected the USA PRime Beef Tenderloin.
My wife's had to be sent back because it was not cooked as she requested it. It was immediately rectified - no questions asked. It was very good but we both actually felt that the Tenderloin that we've had at their companion restaurant, EAT HERE in Siesta Key, is actually better. Our final decision was Chocolate Truffe Terrine and Florida Key Lime Pie for dessert. Both we're excellent.
I felt the first few courses were served very fast and asked the waiter to give us some time in between courses. A few questions we asked I felt could have had a more knowledgable answer. Overall, the service was well intentioned and good.
We went to the Beach Bistro for a special occasion and definitely enjoyed it. With three individual drinks total, tasting menu and tax the bill was $241- plus tip. Our overall impression was that we don't see what seperates this restaurant from other very, very good ones to justify the expense.

Looking for Italian for Sat Night and Sunday Brunch near Alexander Inn

Reporting back on our visit to Hostaria da Elio - group of nine - our table was waiting and we were seated promptly. BYOB.
Eggplant appetizer, chicken with goat cheese and Carmelized onions entree and the spumoni Tartuffe dessert were the favorites. Very good food and service and fair prices. Bill was $230- plus tip.
Ended up at Serafina's on Sunday for AL Cabrino pizza and drinks. Enjoyed it and the waiter was excellent.

Looking for breakfast, S/E Suffolk

How about Eckarts Luncheonette right in Westhampton Beach - good food, interesting shop with a display of old newspapers, magazines, etc

Ice cream - Rehoboth/Lewes Delaware

The Ice Cream Store in Rehoboth Beach - excellent ice cream, a lot of fun flavors to choose from, fun staff. Far and away the best. Hopkins Dairy Farm is very good and the kids can also see and smell the cows. Kings in Lewes is good. Hope this helps!

Ristorante Zebra, Rehoboth Beach, DE

I saw the Rehoboth Beach Foodies review before I went. Part of a group so had no choice. Stand by my review which reflects the feelings of our party of eight.

Ristorante Zebra, Rehoboth Beach, DE

We went with a group to Ristorante Zebra in Rehoboth Beach as part of Restaurant Week promotion of 3 courses for $35.00. Very friendly greeting by the hostess and pleasant, professional service throughout the night. Hot rolls were offered and raved about. Three different salads were enjoyed, with the Mediterranean Style getting the prize as the best.Nice selection of entrees to choose from. Entrees around the table were Pork Cops, Steak, Veal, Clams, Snapper and Salmon. Meat dishes shined. Salmon not cooked all the way thru as requested. Dessert was rum cake with vanilla ice cream - very good but would have enjoyed a choice of at least two different desserts. Overall, an impressive job by this restaurant that encourages us to return!

Capriotti's Sub Shop

Yes, they do sell bottled water, etc.
I realize their in business to sell their products and make a profit - it just doesn't seem to be a reasonable, customer friendly policy to refuse someone a glass of water to take medicine. What would it have.cost them to,do,this? 3 cents for a cup? So for 3 cents, they lost a customer!

Capriotti's Sub Shop

I've been to the Lewes, DE location a few times previously and thought the subs were very good. Recently went and after purchasing food, asked for a small courtesy tap water to take some medicine. Was refused by the counterman - he explained their policy is not to give out cups of water. Obviously disappointed in this and won't be returning.
