Up in Arm's With Armando's. This was the worst experience I have ever had. The shrimp that we ate was tough and inedible, the service staff was rude, when we sent the plate back for correction they sent it back worst than the first time. Then they didn't even let us complete our side dishes then tried to charge us for the uneaten food. We were more than willing to pay for the eaten portion, but the manager was belligerent with us and threw us out and said he didn't want our money, making us feel unappreciated... Most awful experience and as a blogger, that follows Brooklyn tourism this gets a F- , and that's all she wrote.
First class service..
My first time eating at Armando's I was on a lunch date...it was a last minute choice, but there was just something about the look of this restaurant from the outside.
The hostess was so polite and friendly...like family. My date and I were waited on within minutes, and the lunch was so delicious. I went back to Armando's with friends from school a 2nd time and they loved it. Now this place has become my regular lunch hour choice while I'm at work in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Not many places are left like this one, and I'm only 30y.o.
I wanted to like Armondo"s. The food is bland and not exciting. I want to like it because they're so nice but it's not really good food.
I also disagree with all of the negativity being reviewed about Armando's reopening.
Last year, what did you have here...terrible Spicy Pickle loser franchise gone bad, LaTraviata, which is filthy and the ill mannered owner at Cafe Buon Gusto?
You prefer an owner that is all smiles and runs a crappy restaurant or a interested proprietor that runs a no-nonsense landmark establishment.
I know these people and they are hard working, caring owners that will take care of any legitimate request or complaint to accomodate their customers.
Yes, the staff was not great the first week or two but theat has been fined tuned to what I can see and things are starting to run fine....try the bar....great bartender and friendly people always there!
Hey, stop whining and give the place a chance. If you got a problem, make it legit and voice it directly with the owner in a place of the restaurant that the whole place is not an audience. Have class when voicing disapproval.
Try it again with a positive attitude....Ive been in many restaurants all over Brooklyn and this always was and will be #1 with me.
Back and Better then ever!!!. Armando's was my favorite place in the heights for years. I was heart broken when they closed!! I was also ecstatic when I found out they reopened!! I went there last night and I could not believe it! They are even better then before!! They added a few new additions to the menu but kept all my old favorites. They also remodeled the inside and it looks amazing!! After dinner my boyfriend and I decided to have a drink at the newly remodeled bar and ended up hanging out for a couple of hours!! The staff was so friendly and the drinks were so good we could not help it!! There are very few places in Brooklyn Heights that have a Bar where you can just hang out. I am so pleased with the new and improved Armando’s!!!!
Best Italian Restaurant Around!. I just ate here last night and me and my girlfriend love it! The chicken marsala is the best in Brooklyn and the atmosphere is cozy and romantic. I recommend it to everyone looking for a nice night out with a significant other or family!
Great Food!. My boyfriend and I go to Armando's at least 3 times a month. The food is great, unbeatable service, and a wonderful wine list.
Love this place!. Try this place asap! Great food, great people and tons of fun!
Thank you Lord they're back. I am so glad the best Italian restaurant in Brooklyn has just reopened. The Ravioli is amazing but I have to say my personal favorite is the Filet Mignon. Our waiter was very polite and made our experience memorable. During the holiday season this is a great place to visit with the parents.
