Happy Hour of the Week: Mario’s Osteria in Boca Raton
Happy Hour is a wonderful thing. For some, it’s a perfect time to get together with friends and/or co-workers after work to wind down. For others, it’s a time to relax and prepare for the night ahead. For us, it’s a great opportunity to score 1/2 off of drinks and appetizers at some of the area’s best restaurants. With this in mind, we headed straight to Mario’s Osteria in Boca Raton.
Directed to the outdoor bar area of the restaurant, we were advised that the Happy Hour (Served 7-days per week) is designated to that very spot, with a large sofa flanking the perimeter. 1/2 off of non-specialty drinks and appetizers (the appetizers that are “starred” are not 50% off), this is the perfect time to try that appetizer that you may have wanted to in the past. With a large group, this is even more beneficial as you can order a large variety of items to share and pick at what you like.
While we ordered a sampling of many dishes; meatballs, fried calamari, chicken sausage, grilled octopus, etc., we were more than satisfied with the food and then also with the final bill. We were a party of nine, and as such, the tip was added to the bill, based on the original amount, so it was ensured that the server would receive their proper tip.
As the restaurants hopes this will, all of the diners in our party were satisfied with their choices and have an expectation to come back to the restaurant for a full meal. Properly done, a restaurant can obtain many more loyal fans and repeat customers. It appears that they have done just that.
