We always come to Molinari's for special occasions because of the gourmet food and elegant atmosphere. We have always ordered from the daily "specials" (especially seafood) and have never been disappointed!

I think it's so sad how the young adult changed settings of fine dining, operas etc.. there is very few dress requirements in this world anymore. But the dining is still the same as in fantastic food and drink! Highly recommened.

We had not been to Molinari's for many years and suggested we go for dinner with friends. It was so good the first time, I still remembered what I ate. We started off with a hostess who didn't even know they served liquor. We waited...More
