Outstanding Wine List – I had an enjoyable experience at Ristorante Panorama. It was my first visit there and the first thing that struck me was all the awards for the restaurant's wine list. After I was seated and received the list, I understood why. The list was huge but our server diligently walked me and my companion through it. We settled on one of the flights of wine, which allowed us to taste five different wines. The meal was also very good and I was impressed that the restaurant opened its entire menu for a restaurant week function. Usually during a restaurant week dining experience, you're confined to a limited selection. I would return to Ristorante Panorama.
The wine alone are worth the trip! – Yes they have great Italian food, but the wine selection here has to be the best in the city. By the bottle & by the glass the choices are immense. This is the place for wine lovers.
HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!!! – We went for lunch. After waiting for 15 minutes for our waitress to come over we were rudely given the menus. There we only 2 other tables besides ours.
I ordered a dish that did not come as ordered. When I brought this to the waitress's attention, she told me there was nothing she could do and to " deal with it".
I was appalled to say the least. For these prices I expect top notch service.
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
You are better off going to Dave and Busters down the street. At least there you will get better service.
Regretful Customers – My husband and I went to enjoy our first night out as new parents on Saturday September 29th and decided upon Restaurant Panorama. Much to our surprise we were extremely disappointed. After we were seated it took an extremely long time for anyone to come over to take our beverage orders. Once our beverage orders were taken we also gave our dinner order considering how long it took. We waited about 10-15 mins when our appetizers came out before our wine flights? Our silverware was taken away after our appetizers and my husband and I had to eat with our dessert forks and one knife? Our waitress never came over to see how we were doing at any point. In my opinion part of going out and enjoying a good meal when spending over 200 dollars for two is stellar service. The experience we had at your restaurant on Saturday night was horrible and I can truly say that I will never recommend or choose to spend my money at your restaurant in the future.
bad service, normal food – The food was good, but nothing special and the service was absolutely terrible. Our waitress looked like it was 5AM and we had just woken her up from a sound sleep. Not to mention she messed uo our bill in the end. Go to sit at the bar and you will be happy.
what a wine list! – The food here is great, but the wine list is amazing. dozens of wines by the glass and I was surprised to find many grappas by the glass. Nice atmosphere too.
drink, don't eat – I'm sure you've read the other reviews- the wine selection is amazing and the flights of wine are definitely fun to choose. I thought dinner was good, but undoubtedly over priced. I agree with another reviewer- don't go for the food.
2 words: Wine Flight – The wine flights are a must. The food is delicious. A great place to celebrate any special occassion.
Flights of Wine – My husband and I went to a pre-dinner wine tasting at Il Bar. The idea of flights of wine was very fun and we enjoyed the experience. However, I'm not sure their preservation system works 100%. We both agreed that a strange taste ran through the wines -- they tasted very flat and very alcohol-like. It wasn't as much of a problem with the fuller-bodied wines like Cabernets and Zifs but definitely a problem with lighter wines.
Beyond Expections – Had a 8:00pm reservation and was seated @ 8:05 which is outstanding for a saturday night, remember you cann't kick out the early crowd if they wonn't leave. Pound for pound some of the best food and service around this town. Great place to take a date. The bar area was happening too. Awesome place with lots of great looking people floating around. A most go to Restaurant. On my second visit there we had to wait for a table to open up and we grabbed a few flights at the trendy bar. Good area to load up while waiting for a table. Good place to take a date and then some.
