This restaurant has changed hands since I was last there and wow. The staff are so friendly, the air of tension which used to pervade it has gone. The servings remain generous and the food is sensational I ate Filet Mingon and it was the best I have eaten IN MY LIFETIME. Really I have eaten steak all over the... More

I probably should have read the reviews beforehand. Pretty average food and quite small portions. The prices are a little high. There's a lot of options around the area, avoid this place!!!

Went to Dino's for a family dinner - there were twelve of us including three children - we have been there before and it was great but Dino's is apparently under new management. It was last Saturday night and it was only half full - the waitresses were very adept at avoiding eye contact and wandered around the restaurant aimlessly... More

We've dined here previously and had a great time BUT new management has happened. Service was chaotic, orders lost, items on the menu not available, staff members yelling at each other. Not a great experience for a family birthday.

Chip's weren't cooked properly, we got charged for drinks we didn't order, charged $36 for one trio of dips and the saganaki just isn't as good as Andrea's
