Good food. Good beer. Fast service. Always deliver good service even though they are busy
Amazing food and lovely staff! Will definitely be going back
Food great, as always. Staff were exceptional, especially dealing with (unjustifiably) cranky, impatient customers. All had a smile on there face and were very helpful.
I love the atmosphere and the staff are so lovely.
We love coming to Criniti's as we travel from Nelson Bay to do so. It was not the usual dinner we had tonight as the waitress that first sat us down was either really tired or not very happy. Not the best first impression, but due to the fact that all our other visits were good as well as the food, I let it go. Our order was placed and there was a mix up where we ordered qty 4 garlic breads but only 3 came out. My partner asked the first waitress that sat us to be able to supply another bread and she said that she would notify the kitchen. The bread never arrived. Other than that the food was amazing as always. Thank you we will be back again.
Have been there a few times before food is always really nice and service is normally really good just tonight was really bad 45 mins after arriving we had to ask a waitress to come over so we could order drinks after that we ask 3 times if we could order our food and all up from wen we got there finally someone came to take our order over 1 hr later we were starving by then , over all service was really bad lucky the food was nice or we would of been really upset , won’t be going back in a rush at all it’s a shame.
we were pleased to see an updated menu that now included an entree size for the pastas because I have always found the main size so large and can never finish it. this saved me $10!! Delicious food as always. My only complaint is we were a party of 14 people and the food was not all brought out at once - it was very staggered with there being 10 minutes from when the first meal was brought out to when the next one was.
It was a 21st Birthday Party for 7. The group was left waiting 40 minutes after finished the meal and were given the bill. I went to question where the cake was and they had to check the order and ,yes, they apologised and did bring the cake out eventually (it was a birthday package!). People had come and gone and we were one of the last groups to leave (started at 6:45pm). For the prices (and I do like Criniti) you would expect better service. I rang twice earlier that day to make sure everything was on track too.
A wonderful place to for Dinner, especially the Pizzas and Chips. Unfortunately for this visit, there was an issue with one of the Pizzas as it was not made correctly and had an ingredient that could not be eaten by the person who ordered it. Initially they just took the ingredient off the pizza and gave it back (which we rejected) so then they made a replacement Pizza and it arrived with one and a half tiny cockroaches in it so this didn't help the situation however the staff did act very promptly and immediately made another replacement Pizza and removed the cost of this Pizza off the bill. We've always enjoyed Crinitis however were probably going to be a little cautious in coming back.
We had specifically booked the birthday package as it was my mums 60th birthday. We turned up and their were no balloons, we had to wait for our table and there was no mention of where the balloons were. I waited about 15minutes and still no balloons so I went and asked. I was told they didn’t have time so we would be able to have some free drinks instead. This was a nice gesture but the whole point of the package was the balloons. I was going to bring my own and didn’t because you were supplying them. It just would have been a nice touch for a special birthday. We did receive the cake and it was nice.
