Lombardi Mare is a contemporary Italian seafood restaurant. It has a very chic decor that has fish everywhere, and an open kitchen and bar.
It has white tablecloth and napkins, and impeccable service (too attentive if anything).
Price varies depending on if you enjoy appetizers, drinks (they have a huge wine list), desert, coffee, special breads, or other extras.
Although seafood (fish) is the specialty, they have some chicken and beef dishes. Soups ($6-8) are good, and appetizers ($5-10) were not tried. Entrees ($10-27) vary widely, and include Antipasti, Pasta, Fish, and meat. Wine is available by the glass ($6-11) and by the bottle ($27-125).
Lunch (when I visited) costs less than dinner, but well worth an occasional visit, even though it is well beyond my normal lunch budget.
Lunch entrees were about $12 and included soup or salad and vegetable. I had shank steak (carved beef seasoned with garlic butter) with mashed potatoes (that were fantastic), and green beans. I started with cream of mushroom soup that was creamy, piping hot, and great. I also had a glass of Fume Blanc, and ended with great coffee.
My guests had breaded salmon (great I'm told) that I hope to go back and try, and a pasta special.
A great meal, good service, and very nice environment, make Lombardi Mare a great place for special occasions, or even business lunches, meals, and/or meetings. They have private dining rooms with a private chef available for groups. The coat check at the entrance was a nice touch.
