Arrived there at 11 am and was told there was a 25 min wait but seated after 20 min. I ordered corned beef hash and my friend ordered crab hash. Both were delicious. The corned beef was pulled from a roast (not canned) and the potatoes in both hashes were newly fried. Poached eggs on top were cooked perfectly with the yolks still soft. Service was exceptional even though they were very busy, as always. One criticism is the noise level. It was so loud that I couldn’t hear what my friend across the table was saying. I’ve eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and the food is always great.

After years of living in the area and never managing to try Windmill Bistro, My husband and I have eaten their food twice in two weeks.....and now know we want to go back often! Two weeks ago we went for lunch. I had a combo with half a chicken walnut wrap and a small roasted butternut squash salad. ($13) Both were yummy. My husband had a Dungeness crabmelt with fries ($15), also great. There was a lot of crab in the melt, and I especially craved his fries, stealing as many as he'd allow.....crispy on the outside and tender on the inside....just about perfect! The food is a bit pricy, but the quality is high and portions are just right.
A week after our first lunch there we went for a friend's private event. They had set up a little buffet in their separate building. It was really nice for a small event, looking onto the garden, and service from the wait staff to set up the buffet, clear plates, clean up, etc. Food was excellent and nicely presented.
Ambiance is pleasant, even in the winter, when the garden is dormant, but will be really gorgeous in the spring and summer, as the gardens are tended by the nursery which is part of this little complex. Even when busy it was still tolerable noise levels (and I cannot talk over loud places). Tea lovers should also head over to "Tea Madame" in the same complex....it's worth walking around before or after eating to see the little shops and the nursery. There is ample free parking in their lot, though overflow will be in the gravel part. Note that for the winter the Bistro does only lunch M-F and brunch on weekends. Definitely recommended.

Love this restaurant. Absolutely everything I tasted was excellent. The Apple and Goat Cheese Bruschetta was delicious, as was the Crab Manicotti and the Gnocchi with a Vodka Sauce. Deserts are all made on site. One table next to us came in just for dessert. We sampled the homemade Gelato and it was truly the best I've ever had. This is a small restaurant with a very comfortable atmosphere, great food and excellent service. I will go out of my way to return to this place on my next trip to Washington.

It’s comfortable and nice looking inside. Family friendly and across meridian from Target in South Hill. I really enjoy the salads and chicken sandwich here. Get ready to stretch your jaw because they are huge! My husband has had the burger here but said Red Robin’s taste better for the same price. My son had the pasta and loved it. So, I would go here for everything yummy except the burgers.

Cozy Italian seafood & steakhouse with full bar, warm lighting & outdoor seating with mountain view
We went to Tuscany’s tonight for dinner. Although we have been there before we don’t frequent there. We have a 20 dollar off coupon for our wedding anniversary. The wine was good, my wife had the artichoke stuffed chicken and I had the chicken Parm. My wife really enjoyed her meal, my chicken parmigiana was burnt and over cooked. My wife said I should send it back but I was hoping it was just the cheese that was burnt. There was a cooking class in the main part of the restaurant so it was pretty busy. The service was slow, really slow, but with the crowd in the other part, maybe it was too be expected. I am still waiting for that “wow” meal but will have to keep waiting. The food, ambience and service is good, just not great

I hadn't been here in probably over a year but was happy to see they were as good as ever. I had the Mousaka which I had been looking forward to for a while. As a matter of fact it's why I came. There is a Mediterranean restaurant near my home but it leans more towards Arab so they don't have Mousaka. It was delicious although a little sweeter than I remember Mousaka being. My guest had the Fettuccini and Souvlaki and that chicken was good also. Prompt and friendly service was provided by Lena. The only reason it's not getting 5 stars was the annoying stems on the green beans that were my side vegetable. I finally gave up on them after eating about 1/2.

My coworkers and I have been coming here off and on over the years and had a great time on a Monday afternoon. Not crowded at lunch time, great lunch specials too. I had the Ram burger and it was cooked medium which was perfect, very juicy, and very filling. Mine came with fries and they offer several sauces as ketchup is too bland for me. Our waitress was great, checking on what more we needed, but not too much to be a nuisance. We always have lots to catch up on and they never push us to get us out, so we were sable to talk to each other and eat also at our leisure, which is greatly appreciated!

A nice place to eat lunch or dinner. Kind of mid-line and not too expensive but not cheap eats either. By the river trail so there's a nice walk after eating. Great chop-chop salad! Also wonderful are the chicken Marsala, chicken parm, steamer clams, braised ribs.... Actually, everything I've eaten there was good!

My favorite restaurant in Puyallup! I crave dinner here. The ambiance is nice. The service and friendless of the staff is excellent and the food. The FOOD is divine! I'm a snobby eater and usually like only one or two dishes on the menu. At Karma there at least 6 entrees that make my mouth water. They also reach out to veterans and service professionals with a free buffet every month.
