My wife and I met friends here for lunch and the food was wonderful. The restaurant is clean and modern and the food was delicious. This place belongs at the top of your list for a dairy restaurant.

Ottimo has delicious food with a large selection of healthy choices including veggie burgers and whole wheat wraps. Service is excellent. Prices are ok, this is a definite must if you are in or around Lakewood

Even if you are a meat lover you will appreciate this dish! Very satisfying and just plain delicious. It can get busy so pays to make reservations...

What a find in Lakewood! We were treated to a lovely dinner here- we are all foodies and very hard to please- everyone loved the food! Service is excellent, decor is like a fine Manhattan restaurant. It is busy which cuts down on the ambience,...More

Fantastic new restaurant in Howell. The owner is very attentive and the food is really great. They have a superb sushi bar but you can'tr really miss with anything on the menu.

Nice upscale restaurant, mostly quiet with good food and presentation. A bit higher priced, but worth it. French onion soup and potato encrusted salmon are good choices. Pasta choices available, as well as a good desert and coffee selection.

There is a lovely separate party room but you would need to call the restaurant for details as to price, etc.
