"Our food was served cold twice after sending it back. We had a bad waiter who we had to chase down for service.....In fairness, I have gone to this restaurant and love it, however this was a bad experience."

"This will definitely be our go-to restaurant for nights we have tickets for the Round House theater. It is a very lovely walk, even just a few days after the blizzard. This translates into a wonderful time and energy saving fact: one car -park for dinner and theater. My other reason for making it my new favorite Bethesda restaurant is the extreme comfort of conversation because the room is properly protected from noises. Even the loud group in the room was muffled by attention paid to the acoustics. The restaurant is very large, but it has been beautifully designed to make for much more intimate feel in a beautifully decorated room. My only wish would be for different vegetarian options. I had the vegetarian stew. While very good, it was a little more rustic than I would like on theater night."

"We've been coming to Cesco's for nearly 10 years but had not tried the new location until recently. It's fabulous in every way. It's a great place for Friday happy hours and a perfect place for dinner. The new location is more spacious and has many small cozy nooks for private parties than the old location. Food is always beautifully prepared and served. The Northern Italian menu is a nice complement to the other Italian restaurants in downtown Bethesda. We had New Year's dinner at Cesco's last week and found both the rockfish and pasta with lobster to be great. The tiramisu is the best around. Prego!"

"The bronzino (salt crust prep) was overcooked. My guest had sea bass and the accompanying peas, also overcooked, were inedible. The appetizers--breaded calamari and an Italian soup, were good. Café macchiato was weak and bland--so unexpected for an Italian restaurant. The wait service was indifferent and inattentive--never came over to see how food was. Also, he served each of us the wrong glass of wine and had to be corrected. Obviously, he didn't care."

"Our dining experience at Cesco was fabulous. The service was top notch and the food was absolutely delicious. I would encourage anyone to go and have a romantic dinner for two or a group event for more."
