  • ChefMoz“We had a big occasion to celebrate here, and sadly, we ended up regretting our choice with Finelli's. I will list all of the bad experiences in the order in which they occurred: 1) Our party called ahead and gave them the billing information as to not haggle for the check later-- to which they said they required a 20% tip for the server. In the end, our server did not deserve the 20% gratuity they tacked onto our bill. 2) When we arrived, we were not presented with menus or a wine list until 10 minutes after sitting down and only after we requested them. 3) It took at least 15 minutes for bread to arrive, even though the table had been pre-set with butter dishes. 4) When asked about the wine, the server was not knowledgeable about the menu, a lot of the wines listed on the wine menu were our of stock, and when asked to recommend another in our price range, the server was not prepared to do so, and had to go check with the chef. 5) The server did not inform us of the 86'd menu items for the night, so when ordered, she told us they were out of the item. 6) The server talked up the Cesar salads, and highly recommended them, however did not mention the fact that they were a $5.00 charge (when you could get a garden salad with your meal for free). 7) The dining room was freezing. 8) We waited 35 minutes for our starter salads. 9) We waited 1 hour 20 minutes for our entrees. 10) One of our party's dishes had charred grilled chicken. When he told the waitress it was burned, her reply was "Well, we grill it." in a snide tone. He had tasted grilled chicken before, and knew it wasn't supposed to taste burned. 11) The special dish for the night was said to come with white asparagus. When the asparagus came out, it appeared to be from a can. If not-- insanely overcooked. It was mush, and inedible. 12) Some of the pasta dishes had sauces that were watery, and just not very tasty. Overall, I would say I do not recommend this place to anyone.... if you do end up having to go here, stay away from any meat dishes, and stick to the simple pastas. I think those are the safest. ”
