We ate here twice in three weeks, and it was consistently good. The calamari was excellent and the fish entrees very good. Always enjoy our dinners at Pescara! Excellent service as well.

OMG. It's one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. Let's start with the ambience. Smooth jazz as background music, beautiful décor that's inviting and calming at the same time, so one does not have to rush eating. The service was impeccable. The...More

Nice, albeit romantic atmosphere with a subdued big city vibe. Good acoustics - not too loud, even though every table was occupied. Great staff - friendly, attentive. Scallops were the absolute highlight for me. Superior quality, cooked to absolute perfection with a really nice sauce....More

You might be skeptical of a “seafood/fish” restaurant in the Midwest! You will love this understated restaurant in the Double Tree Hotel. The lobster bisque was supremely delicious! Again, hesitant and skeptical about ahi tuna tartare; yet, this was among the best in my 68...More
