Texas Roadhouse

Reviewed By radiusmedical - Varese, Italy

This place is renowned for offering amazing steaks at a very competitive price! Same size and quality in New York City and Chicago's fancy Steak restaurants would be charged a price 3 or 4 times as much! Choice is varied and extensive, capable of suiting all tastes, unless you are a...vegetarian! In such case, good luck and...how could you possibly lead a good life? Jokes aside, the steakhouse offers as appealing side-dishes, and meats other than just steak. It seems to be very popular amongst families, also appealing to kids. This place is always packed, thus reservation is a must!

We stopped by for a late breakfast. We started with coffee which is alway fresh and hot. We ordered the broccoli and cheese omelette, served with rye toast and an abundance of homefries. The omelette was the cooked perfectly with just the right amount of cheese. We also had the eggs benedict on an english muffin. The eggs were cooked to the perfect texture (not too runny or hard) and the sauce was very good. The server was very polite and attentive.

Cacciatore's

Reviewed By Kris_L0211 - Binghamton, New York

I called a day before I was going to have dinner with my boyfriend and my family for my boyfriend's birthday, letting them know what time we were coming, what my plan was (I was bringing my own cake) and how many people to expect. It was nice of them to allow me to bring my own cake (as long as it was store bought). They could've very well said no because they sell various cakes and desserts there.

I dropped off the cake two hours before we were supposed to have dinner and the hostess that accepted the cake acted like she had been expecting me to drop it off. She wrote down my name, how many in our party and the time we were to be expected.

We had a table waiting for us when we arrived, which was great seeing how they said it was first come, first serve. The first thing I noticed was it was awfully dark. I understand the the romantic Italian restaurant feel but my mother and I could barely read our menu. Our waitress came out and told us they were having some trouble with the credit card machine so things would be a little slow. We were fine with that.

While we were finishing up our dinner, our waitress told us the machine was back up, like she was going to get our check. I had to remind her about the cake I brought. We waited... And waited... And waited... it was extremely awkward because my boyfriend didn't know we were waiting for a cake...

Our waitress did accommodate my request for candles (which I had brought) but she came out with them fully lit on the cake in one hand and with other people's food in the other hand, served them first, while my boyfriend is looking at me, so embarrassed because the cake was like a spotlight in the dimly lit restaurant... Then our waitress started to sing happy birthday, which my family and myself half sang with her while the whole restaurant went silent and stared.

I'm not complaining about our waitress, she was friendly and did her job the best she could. I am just not happy with the handling of the situation. It was downright embarrassing. I had expected (with the price of the dinner we were ordering) that this would have been executed better considering I called the day before and stopped by two hours before specifically to let them know the situation. I dont understand why it wasn't communicated better and why this was brought upon our poor waitress at the last minute. I felt my efforts for a smooth execution went unnoticed. Our dinner took two hours. 45 minutes of those two hours were spent waiting for our dinner to be cleared and boxed and for the cake to be served.

That being said, the food was great. I would recommend this restaurant for the food. However, if you have a special occasion with special accommodations, I would say go elsewhere. For a pricey restaurant, I expected more attention to detail and a smoother execution of my request.

Tasty Italian dishes, particularly pasta, parmesan and pizza items. Stay away from the salmon, which is low quality, and looks like frozen portions jazzed up with their pink sauce. Sauce is delicious, but salmon not so much. Prices very reasonable, but noise level is definitely a problem, particularly when you're sitting near a large party. Don't expect to carry on a conversation unless you come after the crowds - you can always call and find out. There are two sections to this restaurant, but each section has no sound absorption materials. If noise isn't an issue for you, you will enjoy the food, particularly if you stick with pasta dishes. With better quality salmon, that dish could be a hit; until that happens, think twice before ordering it.

P.S. Restaurant & Luxury Lounge

Reviewed By Sheri L

We love P.S. Restaurant! It is our favorite place to have dinner in Vestal. The food is always excellent and the service attentive. It is a locally owned restaurant and we like to support our local economy. Recently, they catered a family get-together and the dinner was awesome. Sylvania made up custom menus with my son's name which was a nice touch. My husband and I also periodically go to P.S. for date nights. Highly recommended for a great evening out!

Reviewed By KareW34 - Binghamton, New York

Great meal!! Margarita pizza and an antipasto salad......such a great meal. The antipasto was enough for two people to share and the pizza was as good as I have had in Italy. Big chunks of garlic made each bite, pure deliciousness. It was the perfect meal size for two, with pizza left over for the next days lunch. Nothing like it locally, true culinary delight, with the old family recipes

Came for lunch during the Restaurant Week and instantly liked it. Interior decoration is festive and colorful. My waiter, Christopher, is polite and efficient. Service is very fast. Ordered soup (potato, bacon and onion), Tex-Mex taco salad and Oreo cookie brownie. Soup is creamy and flavorful. The taco salad is surprisingly great. Taste is terrific and portion is generous. Dessert is also good. The Restaurant Week lunch only costs twelve bucks.

First time in Coppertop and instantly liked it. Nice decor and friendly staff. My waitress, Adelisa, is courteous, efficient and attentive. Food is also great. Philly fries and meatballs and ricotta are tasty. New Orleans beignet is hot and aromatic. Portion is quite big and price very reasonable.
