    Pretty standard fare. There's a signature sauce on the menu, as well a meat sauce and Alfredo, but no Bolognese or other traditional options. People at my table enjoyed the signature sauce, I found the meat sauce (which our server admitted was simply the meatballs crumbled into a tomato sauce) unremarkable. Wine selection was small and the wait staff wasn't particularly familiar with it or able to discuss the wines in detail. All in all, it was an ok choice for a casual family meal but not one I'd return to for an authentic Italian experience.

    The single most important component to being a really good restaurant is consistency. Full stop. It is of no value to eat at a wonderful restaurant and find you're doing a coin flip hoping the food will be on par while you're there. Royal Oak has plenty of those. D'Amatos is always very good and often times excellent. The staff from the front to the bar to the back are A+. Management is stellar. You just can't ask for more from a dining experience.

    As soon as I walked in the African American guy ignored me for the first 30 seconds then after he sat me and my date down he told us we have an hour and a half to be there and the next reservation will be served here. Which I though was especially strange since the next two guest that got seated next to us did not get the same statement once seated as we did. Then during the end of our brunch he came back over to state the next reservation will be seated here as if we were getting kicked out. We have only been there for an hour at this point. Very unprofessional and will never come here again! This was the WORST service I ever received!

    Arrived early for reservations, so stood at the bar for a drink. My friend asked if they had cucumber vodka, and she said no. Didn't offer to muddle cucumber in vodka. Which I think any good bartender would do. She then waited a while to come back to us. Our waitress was phenomenal, and apologized for a drink that we ordered that was undrinkable. We ordered the Fried Caprese salad as an appetizer, good, not great. Could've used more basil, and balsamic glaze. For dinner we ordered the Spring special, which was goat cheese ravioli, with asparagus. It was too rich, heavy, and creamy to be considered a Spring dish. An overall underwhelming experience.

    The food was very good but no extras of any kind. For example, a burger usually is accompanied by chips or fries. No bread basket on table; you had to order a separate bread board. However, the cavatappi was excellent and our waitress very attentive. In these days, the latter counts for a lot!
