Nice waitress. Nice environment, but super, super SLOW, service. Took forever (>40 min) to get our table although there were plenty of open seats, after being seated it took at least 30 minutes to take our order. Food took another 49 minutes to arrive. When the food came they couldn't tell if it was for our table or the one... More

My husband and I decided to give Bobarino's a second try. Hostess was rude and service was terrible until the drinkers showed up. We were yet again disappointed in the dualing pianos. Stick with Mojos.

I have been to Bobarino's on a couple of occasions lately and both time I have enjoyed the food. On my first visit I ordered the french dip sandwich. It came to me nice and hot, and absolutely delicious. The service was good too. On my second visit I tried the turkey chili. It was quite flavorful. Those who are... More

Made reservations for 6pm and got right in- expected it would be busy and it was. Ordered beers- my husbands came right away but his was 1/2 gone by the time mine arrived:( Chips and salsa were good- good salsa with a zip and great guacamole. Both ordered kabobs. I had them previously and this time they weren't the best-... More

My husband and I ate dinner here for the dueling piano bar. The food and service was good. We were disappointed in the entertainment. The other piano player was sick so it was just one piano player and a guitarist. Maybe another time.

Two of my out of town friends came to visit for the weekend, and we grabbed a Saturday dinner at Bobarino's. The hostess was very friendly and welcoming, and we were given options on where we would like to sit. We tried the sangria and the spiced apple Manhattan- both were good! One of my friends split the 9 cheese... More

I hate to be overly critical of this place, but they need to try harder. It often seems like they know people will come, due to their location and the surrounding attractions, The service is OK, the food is OK, and the ambiance is probably the best feature as it is consistent with the expectation. Nothing I have ever ordered... More

We made reservations for 22 to celebrate several birthdays. Several burgers and steaks had to be sent back as they were rancid. They did apologize but it ruined the evening for several. We won't ever go back!

For a sports bar/restaurant, this offers a surprising variety of dishes. Some are what you'd expect and some are unique. I had the goat cheese pizza and it was very flavorful. Service is friendly and price is right.

The salads on the slap bar were very good with a lot of choice and bold flavours. There were about 10 different types of pizza which were all good, nothing exceptional but all good.
