They charge too much for their wine

3 of 5 stars (average, fine dining).

(see explanation of ratings below)

Allow 50-70 minutes (no dessert).

Average entrée price: $24.

Allow about $40-$45 per person (one drink, no dessert, gratuity not included).

Technically, this is fine dining, but it’s a chain, and it has none of the class, elegance or creativity on the menu of it’s next-door neighbor, Flights (for just one example).

Pea pod salad is nice and simple: sugar snap peas, chopped tomatoes and sliced cucumber with a light lemon dressing.

Halibut was overcooked and had way too much of the accompanying sundried tomatoes, basil, pinenuts, red bell peppers, & petite arugula salad (actually, we didn’t even see the arugula).

They charge too much for their wines and cocktails.

About my ratings:

Only fine dining establishments can garner five stars. Until menuism realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, menuism’s rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish menuism would do the same):

1) fast food and “fast-casual” (no table service).

2) casual dining (table service, average entrée price: $10-$20).

3) fine dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV’s in dining room, average entrée priced at more than $20).

Fine dining can earn a max of five stars. Casual dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

Impressive dinner for work event

We had our office Christmas dinner at Mia Francesca in North Hills and the service was outstanding. The food was wonderful… A very authentic Italian menu and the flourless chocolate cake was divine. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and our drinking glasses were never empty. A great experience and we will certainly be back.

Penne Pastore

This dish is filled with fresh Italian sausage, need I say more? The basil sauce was great and had just a touch of goat cheese on top.

1st Year Anniversary Dinner

I made reservations for 715pm this evening for my 1st year anniversary using OPENTABLE with specific notes about this special event, nobody mentioned it was our anniversary the entire time we were there even though the couple next to use was given a candle desert by their waitress who congratulated them on their happy day loud enough everyone heard, our table was in the middle of the room with all of the other uncomfortable square tables instead of by the window or in a booth indicating it was a special event, our server Jon P was nice but seem to disappear for hours after each visit, the food was fantastic but cost 111.82 and we felt uncomfortable given this was to be an important day, with all of the other restaurants at north hills you need to straighten up and fly right or go bankrupt like everyone else irresponsible, our money will be better spent somewhere else just anywhere but you, never again will we entertain ourselves and spend our money on you it was a horrible experience.
