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.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience here. The service was excellent and the food and drinks were delicious. It was especially nice that they brought out a dessert to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and did not put it on the bill. We will be back again soon!

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!

Made reservations for 8:30p and didn’t get seated till 9:15p. What was the point of reservations?! No apologies, manager should have bought us dessert or something! Thank goodness our server was competent!

Valentines Day. I just think if you are going to pay the prices charged then you should be a little filled. I had scallops and the waiter said 4 but I got 3 and when I mentioned it they brought me out another one. I weigh 105 and I was satisfied w 4. I wouldn’t have been with 3. My husband had steak and he was hungry when we left. He should have been satisfied. But needless to b say the waiter was ver accommodating. Therefore we had a good time. I do believe your portions should be a little bigger for the price or add a vegetable.

Yes and no. I would reccomend this place for it's outstanding ambiance and atmosphere, but not for food. Unless you like over seasoned, and very strong flavours that not necessarily match.
