My friends and I went to brunch on Sunday. They have done a great job with their table distancing and having umbrellas. I felt so sorry for the servers because the heat was tough. Our food was delicious and they always treat you wonderfully there.

Andy was our waiter and he did a great job considering the circumstances. Outdoor dining in July is not ideal but the service and food made it enjoyable.
would definitely go back; actually I did try to come back for lunch the next day and they were booked

The food at Positano Coast was excellent- and the endless mimosas were defiantly worth the cost. My sever was nice enough, but very unhelpful when it came to allergies. She looked at me like I was nuts when I asked a question. The only other oddity was the gentleman who brought our food had the salad at an angle, and all you could see was liquid (water or dressing?) spilling of the side.

The staff was very professional and made us feel very comfortable during Covid. The view was fantastic and our brunch food and drink was on point. We would definately go back.

Of course, dining out is now as much about “COVID” as it is the restaurant. What that means is that it’s hard to rate ambiance on what the restaurant truly has to offer - their answer to COVID was acceptable, and what I saw of the indoor space makes me want to go back when things return closer to normal, to get the “real” vibe of the place. What we got was outdoor seating, and it’s all really starting to look the same. That statement is in no way a reflection on Positano Coast, merely an observance of dining post-COVID. Service was good, food was good. Desserts were excellent.

Visited on July 3rd, first time dining out since the pandemic closures and the experience was all we hoped for and more! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. All outdoor seating, QR code scans to pull up the menus on your phone and the staff took care in keeping distance and masks when taking orders. Really good system in place. The seafood board and the seafood harvest were stellar!

I never leave reviews and always take them with a grain of salt when I read them... but this really has some great food and great service! My boyfriend and I came in for dinner with another couple and we were celebrating my friend’s birthday. Marina was our server and was very prompt and polite! The whole staff was well-trained and never left a dirty dish behind. Definitely recommend.

Unfortunately we began this experience by crashing into the car that belonged to our server (Marina) but what an amazing soul she is. She was extremely gracious and was easily one of the best servers we’ve ever had. She balances relatability and great customer service well.

We were excited to finally be able to have a restaurant experience since stay at home orders were lifted. The food was great. Our table was great. Parking was easy. I did notice that their menu was shorter than it was previously. However we were able to find delicious meals. Lastly, our server seemed a little annoyed with us at first but by the end of our stay she seemed to warm up to us a little more.

The food is very good, and my date loved the crab tacos as an appetizer, the grilled salmon as an entree' and the marble potatoes. She also had the "Lucy" as a pre-meal cocktail which is a tequila based drink, and for dessert we shared a delicious chocolate mouse, and all of the food was fresh.
The service was good, and they worked as a team with many different servers coming to our table to deliver food and clear plates. The atmosphere in the restaurant was wonderful with the huge doors open by the bar which made this an outdoor space on the second floor.

The service truly took away from the experience. The waiters were not attentive and missing most of the time. Our dinner was really good and I would definitely give them another chance. Hopefully the service improves.

Positano’s team provided an amazing service, great food and great atmosphere despite the difficult COVID situation.
The staff was wearing mask during the entire service and was careful to maintain appropriate distance. Despite all these restrictions they were able to provide and amazing service. The food? Well, amazing, as usual!

We were seated outside on the sidewalk. While our table was only half shaded, I really appreciated that the restaurant had put up up large canvases for shade. The food was good and the service was solid If slightly inattentive. My only complaint is that the water is not served with ice. You’re eating outside in summer in the sun, ice is needed to keep a drink even marginally cool.

Great location nestled in a nice section of old downtown. We were able to dine and enjoy brunch outside. The food was great the portions were satisfying. Would love to return. Service was a little slow and impersonal but overall a good experience

The food was delicious and fresh however service was terrible and our server took at 30mins to come to our table and offer us something to drink.

Service experience was not great however I will go back 1 more time as the food was good and hoping 2nd time around service will be better.

I requested upstairs dining on my reservation and they didn’t hold it for me. We were on time. We sat on Walnut in the shade alone. The service and cold lobster made up for it. Best Negroni helped.

We had a wonderful experience! Nicky or just “Nick” to us was very accommodating of my girlfriends gluten allergy. We were concerned we would have trouble finding dishes that were appropriate for her, but Nick made amazing recommendations. He even asked the Chef if he could make the salmon dish gluten-free by not adding the sauce that goes on top. Since we would have never guessed the sauce wasn’t gluten free, we were even more impressed with Nick’s attention to detail.

Additionally, the establishment is amazing. We highly recommend!
