Laurenzo's is consistent and reliable. It's also got a broad selection of foods and solidly stocked bar. It's a diverse and grown-up, boomer crowd. So I will keep going back.

Laurenzo’s is always good..I was a little heartbroken to find out they didn’t have a full menu and my favorite item I always have wasn’t on there...

There will definitely be a next visit and plenty of other times to have my favorite!!

So thankful that they were open for us to dine in.


Thanks so much!!

Very good meal! Everyone enjoyed their food and service was wonderful as always. Staff all wearing masks. Disposable paper menus. One person did not think their margarita was the best, but martini was excellent.

After about 30 visits to this restaurant, I was finally disappointed with this visit. Food was great but, I was disappointed with the reduced menu. I always order the New York Strip steak, and because of the reduced menu it was not available. Bummer! I asked the waiter if he could prepare the Redfish in a Piccata style, and he said flatly, no. If Chicken Piccata is on the menu anyway, why not just substitute fish for chicken, I'll certainly pay an up charge, but I've never had a waiter at this restaurant tell me he would not prepare a dish according to my wishes.

This was our first onsite dining event since the lockdown began and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Laurenzo’s did a great job in providing spacing and we felt very comfortable. The food was great as usual. Thank you Laurenzo’s for a nice evening. We will be back.

The food was great but would have liked to know they had a limited menu. Didn’t get what I wanted but tried the blackened prime rib and it was tasty. Will go back for the redfish another time

I took my family to Laurenzo's for Mother's Day. The staff took appropriate care to protect the health and safety of the guests and employees and made us feel comfortable enough to enjoy our meal despite the challenging environment we are all in.

The food and service were excellent as always.

Be cautious. We parked right by the front door and we were still broken into. Inside management can't help whatsoever. They have no access to the parking lot cameras. Not sure why they even have them set up.

Service was off for Laurenzo’s. I think the waiter was not feeling well. Visit a month ago service was excellent as expected . One of the Chicken Fried veal cutlets was tough and stringy. Shrimp and grits were top notch. Been three times in the last three months. What has been great food and service over the last 6 or 8 years has been uneven, more so on food than service. Overdone fish, poorly constructed and over cooked meat on the French dip. Kitchen needs attention.

The prime rib was very good. The restaurant was quite noisy as there were many families there. I would not recommend this for a romantic dinner. Service was just okay as it was hard to get the waiter's attention. We were seated at a terrible table and I guess it was our fault that we did not ask to be moved immediately as the restaurant seemed quite busy. We ordered the grilled artichoke appetizer which was inedible and totally worthless. The crab claws were good. Prime rib for dinner was good as well. Would I go back, maybe.

Food is delicious as usual, like to come when I want a nice freshly cooked meal...ambiance is good for a date night...cozy n dimly lit
The strawberry pie is the best, coming from someone who doesn't like fruity pies..
