My husband and I visited Romaine's for the first time, this past weekend. We read reviews online before going. We were NOT disappointed! My husband is not usually a big fan of chicken, but he took all of the recommendations online about the under the brick chicken. He loved it! Finished the whole thing! That night I tried the special... More

A great place to catch up with friends on NY's eve and have dinner. We were allowed to eat leisurely, our server checked on us frequently, and the noise level was acceptable so that we could have a conversation throughout dinner. Fried Calimari appetizer was done well with a sweet/hot dipping sauce. Nice cocktail list and good wine choices with... More

I have been here twice for Christmas parties. So the menu is limited, but still offers a good choice. The food is good and the desserts are also nice. The drink selection is not huge. It is worth a try and see if you like it.

Excellent staff and food. Best Caesar salad I ever had. My friend had the chicken piccata and I had the seared scallop special...if it wasn't considered rude I would have licked my plate. We both agreed that we would go back again.

Nothing fantastic, but overall we were happy with our meals. Watch out for the tuna plate. It is so small of a portion that you could not even consider this a starter.

Even for 5:15pm on a week day, this place is very busy. The specialty cocktails were very tasty. The sea scallops with blue polenta was a mixed bag. The sea scallops were cooked perfectly but the polenta was gummy, not the creamy texture it should be. The salmon dish was cooked very well and side was tasty.

Had a delicious dinner with 3 friends. Started by sharing the Korean chicken wing appetizer. I was a little skeptical but they were very good. A tad spicy but just a tad. Our entries were fish tacos, steak tips and chicken under a brick. I had the fish tacos. They were delicious but be aware that the sauce on top... More

Haven't eaten at Romaine's in a year or so. It was always my favorite place to eat. Had dinner there last night. Had scallops on blue corn polenta. Only four scallops and the corn polenta was incredibly bland for $27. My hubby did enjoy the haddock. The restaurant was freezing cold as well. Not sure that we will be running... More

A favorite go-to restaurant. Whether to eat at the bar or celebrate special occasions. The food and service are reliably good. Especially love the fried calamari and creme brûlée.

We have frequented Romaines at least once a month for the last several years. The food is always good, but the service is spotty. It finally dawned on us that we never see the owners of this neighborhood restaurant. There seems to be high turnover of personnel and limited recognition of regular customers. They even eliminated the rewards program. Never... More
