Diner Reviews
  • "Second visit. Tried the special. Excellent. My son is fussy but had no complaints (this is very good.) Will be back to try a meal other than brunch which is what we had today."

  • "Always great food, great service, good price. We have been to Bullfinches many times and it is one of our favorite places. We had cocktails at the bar, 2-salads, 2-entrees, 1-dessert, 2-coffees - $120 plus tip."

  • "Overall we really enjoyed our dinner. The staff managed to host a large group while we were there without any sacrifice to our service. The food was delicious and we appreciated that there was a choice on some entrees between full size and half size portions. The only down side was the location of our table which looked directly onto the kitchen door. With a large group and full house, there was a constant stream of in and out going on which was very distracting and took away from the pleasure of the meal. We will definitely come again, but will request a table far from this back corner."

  • "3 of us sat outside. we ordered a flat bread. 3 salads & 3 appetizers. 2 had muscles. they are ample for a meal with a salad. 3rd had napoleon lox ??. it was somewhat without any taste. Delightful to sit outside. I have felt in the past few years that the main courses are not as good but enjoy the inside & outside sitting. apps & salad & dessert are fine. drinks are pretty good. not great."

  • "A wonderful meal - everything was delicious and the service was just right. The only slight problem was mosquitoes which were coming in from the outside - otherwise, it was wonderful! There was an option to eat outdoors as well but we were indoors. Will definitely go back."

  • "The service and support staff always makes dining at Bullfinchs a unique experience. The Sunday jazz brunches are awesome. The food is always excellent and we have never had a bad meal or a bad experience at Bullfinchs in Sudbury, Massachusetts. We recommend this unique restaurant to all our friends and invite new friends to dinner or Sunday brunch."

  • "We had another outstanding dinner here with some friends. It was a perfect evening with great weather. They even allowed us to have our cocktails outdoors prior to our dinner which was great and allowed us some time to enjoy the great weather. Once inside, the food and service was fabulous. Highly recommend Bullfinch's."

  • "My wife and I visited Bullfinchs for our 24th anniversary. The food was spectacular and the service is attentive, but not overbearing. It was a nice night, so we decided to eat on the patio. While not the most scenic of views, they did a nice job with screening and ambiance."

  • "We sat at 7:30 and our server did not come to the table -- at 20 minutes, we spoke with the hostess who gave us a complimentary round of drinks and assigned a waiter who was terrific. We have been to this restaurant several times, and the food and atmoshpere is terrific; being ignored for 20 minutes was certainly unexpected."

  • "Our family has dined at Bullfinchs many times in the past several years, and we have *NEVER* had a bad experience. The cocktails are varied and great. The menu has many favorites year-round, yet offers new choices with each seasonal revision. Bullfinchs is our favorite restaurant for birthday and anniversary celebrations, as well as for any time we want to treat ourselves to a nice night out."

  • "This is our favorite dinner destination and after several years we finally made it to Sunday brunch. We were not disappointed. The menu was a nice balance of traditional brunch and creative options. Everything was cooked the way we'd asked for it to be cooked and tasted amazing. The live jaz was really enjoyable and the service was excellent. Highly recommend!"

  • "It was Fathers Day and we were seated immediately. However, we were seated in a corner in a room where we could not see or here the jazz band and there was a noisy child. I asked if we could be moved. We were moved to a bettere table right near the music. The food was excellent."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We made a late reservation and they were able to accommodate us. We have come here for years and it is always consistently great! Some traditional favorites and great specials. Our server couldn't have been nicer. She let us taste some beers we didn't recognize and had our salad chopped the way we like it."

  • "When I made the reservation for 4, I mentioned we are celebrating the 81st. birthday of our husbands. We were seated at a quiet table in the corner of the back room. Much to our surprise the table was set with a big balloon and confetti sprinkled on the tablecloth. The waitstaff was first quality in every respect. The food was served hot plated well and tasty. As we were perusing the dessert menu, we were surprised with a bowl of a brownie Sunday, enough for the 4 of us. It was adorned with 2 lit candles. A splendid evening. "

  • "My wife and I went here for our anniversary. The food was delicious and service was very friendly and attentive. I had the short rib stroganoff which was excellent, and my wife had a soft shell crab special, which was also excellent. Service was exceptionally friendly. With a shared app (PEI mussels), shared dessert sampler (more than enough for the two of us) and a well-paired glass of wine each, the total tab came to ~$100. Great value and definitely plan to go back more often."

  • "We can always count on a great meal at Bullfinches. Beyond the food is the wonderful service, informality, and conviviality all around. This is the kind of place where another diner greets you and tells you what they are enjoying on the menu. Recommended - get the loyalty card. You will be back and it is a nice surprise when $25 comes off the bill every so many visits. Be sure and get a Quack Pack (6 ducks donation in their annual fund raiser)"
