Erminia Restaurant Review

: Nothing has changed here in 20 years---and that's a good thing. That applies to the seriously romantic mood: a candlelit room with a dozen tables, exposed brick walls and a wood fire and the menu. The excellent pastas are mostly house-made and there are veal, chicken and numerous seafood options: swordfish, red snapper, salmon, striped bass and lobster either grilled or dressed with a spicy marinara sauce. Various skewers---meat, poultry and shellfish---are carefully mesquite-grilled. For dessert, consider the luscious Black Forest cake.

Awful, Just Awful.......................

Terrible service, mediocre food, and overpriced tabs --- what's not to like!!

Seriously, don't go to this place. Really over the hill, and just not worth the attitude of the staff for a place that is just not as good as its reputation.
