Everett >Lombardi's Italian Restaurant & Bar Everett
Pretty good. Our service was good. We got there about 530 on a Sunday and there were no seats. Had to sit in bar area, at least we qualified for early bird special. Food was pretty good.
Great authentic spot. Not sure what some are complaining about, this is great atmosphere, very authentic and tasty, and a great date spot. The wines are excellent as well.
so-so. I know, I know... they were trying to be fancy. But seriously, I did not want to pay $8 for a salad I had to cut myself. I could have done it at home for free! The service was bad as well. We weren't offered any bread until AFTER our food came. We won't be going back. Next time we'll go to Anthony's, 1 block away.
Nice pacage deal. I took my girlfreind to the Everett Lombardi's and had an outstanding dinning experience. We were greated by a freindly host and seated at a window table. My girl was impressed and things were just getting started. We were greated by an older quirky waiter who was warm and extremely knowledgable about the food and their great wine selection. He guided us through our wine selection, appetizer selection, entree selection and recomended there tiramisu made from scratch. All the food and wine were top notch and you got the fealing they new what they were doing. The restaurant was busy and the staff was very calm and seem to flow with each other. Being a part of the service industry I'm genrally a tough customer, however this night was all about me and my girl and just enjoying a care free evening. I was thoroughly impressed.
Everett's Anti-Olive Garden. Great food, good service. First time at lombardis and even after reading the reviews decided to give it a shot after a recomdation from a friend. Went here for the day before Valentine's day and was very pleased. Quality food was cooked well, not mass produced like the chains (i.e. olive garden). Server was delightful and very plesant. Will be going back.
Lazy, unpleasant staff-don't come here is right unless you like being cold, ignored or rudely served.
Took my elderly parents for a close by celebration. I should have skipped it as the wait staff was indifferent, unpleasant and the sullen bread/water girl had to be coaxed to come to the table. Gee, can we spell recession because these guys walk around expecting not to get the tips they must feel entitled to. Otherwise they would have been pleasant, turned up the heat when asked rather than suggest that people who are eighty retain their outer garments including hat and scarf. That is what you get when you come down to the water was the flip comment made by our waitress when we asked if the heat could be turned up. I think having heat over sixty would be nice.
Sure, the view is good but if the service is so lousy, you might not as well go. In fact, please don't take your parents, your kids or your dog here. It was a real struggle even getting the tserver to take and bring our wine to the table. She left it on her tray while chatting with the other wait inmates. Their waiters are the most apathetic group ever assembled-like a bad movie of crummy actors.
Don't Go There.
Whoever wrote the review with "Best Italian in Everett" clearly either has no taste or got extremely lucky at Lombardi's. I promise you, this is NOT a good restaurant. We spend many weekends at the Port of Everett and we eat out all the time, and we would go to Lombardi's many, many times if it were any good; it's not. We have actually braved it about a half dozen times over the years, and it is possible to get good service and / or good food there, but it's also possible to get horrible food and service.
There are definitely good restaurants in Everett, although Italian is hard to find. Gianni's is much better than Lombardi's for food, but it of course lacks the view. After that, Italian in Everett "proper" is sketchy at best. But Lombardi's is not the answer. Save yourself the disappointment -- don't go there!
Mediocre at best. Typical Italian flare with-out the details. Over priced for the portions served. The best Chef they had left years ago. Surprised they are still in buisiness. Good place for a date as long as you have a chance to get lucky.
Best Itallian in Everett.
Everett doesn't have any super fancy restaurants so this might be one of the fanciest in town. When you walk in you can tell this place is nice and that the food is going to be good just by looking at the building and croud; but you will be surprised at the end of the meal when you're actually full and it didn't cost you an arm and a leg. Now don't get me wrong its not cheep either but unlike most expensive restaurants you actually get what you pay for.
On to the food, their salads are top notch full of flavor; the veil is tender and you can't go wrong with their pastas. And just like all the other reviews say......the bread and garlic is excellent!
Don't waste your money. We were very disappointed in the food taste and quality. The cannelli and crab was tough and had to be sent back once. It was not much better the second time, but I diseceted it and just ate the filling. The veal marsella was bland and the pasta was poorly cooked. I have had better meals at other Italian restaurantes for a lot less money. The best part was the bread and roasted garlic. Service was good, but the atmosphere was below average. I love the Eagles, but somehow it was not the appropriate ambience for an Italian meal. This restaurant may have been good once, but it has headed downhill.
