    Had a nice dinner with friends. Nick was our server, he was very professional and did a great job. Three of us had the cedar plank salmon ----delicious, the potato croquette was just ok. Tilapia was very good . We never felt rushed and we all agreed we would be back.

    We had eaten here before and the food was great and the service good. This was restaurant week so the experience was much different. The choice of food was limited. We waited awhile before we were even acknowledged. We ordered wine, after we received it we did not see the waiter for awhile. Waited a long time(25 minutes) for appetizer which only appeared after we asked for it. The main course also took at least 25 minutes. No one stopped by to check.Once again after we asked for it it appeared. We believe the waiter was not checking with the kitchen. His answer "we're very busy and the kitchen is busy! " It's not as if the food came out hot, it didn't. Final insult, he forgot the coffee and used the old excuse "I was making a fresh pot".

    If you are looking for a nice dinner to enjoy with friends, look no farther. The food is consistently very good, the hostess is very attentive and the price is reasonable ( not inexpensive) for a nice meal out. We have celebrated birthdays here and just enjoyed Sunday might dinners. Ps: the rolls are superb!

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    I met a friend there who I hadn't seen in awhile. The food options looked good (and food was decent though nothing remarkable). That said, one of the hostesses was incredibly obnoxious. From the minute we sat down, she was pushing us to order and get us out. When the waiter finally gave us the bill (he took his time so so did we), she came over and asked if we were ready for paying the bill. We weren't and even then, she opened the notebook to check. She then sent a busboy five minutes later to check and then stared at us until we paid, and left. I understand there are other reservations but there are more polite ways to address this (ie, politely asking if we'd like to move to the bar area if we'd like to catch up more).

    I've eaten at Chadwicks twice and both times the food was excellent! I had shrimp with garlic breadcrumbs - they were cooked just right and had a wonderful flavor. The vegetables were cooked just right-not to soft or too hard, and the potato croquet was delicious, not at all dry like some potato croquets. The restaurant and bar were busy, but it wasn't too loud to have a conversation.

    Visited Chadwick's for the first time in a few years, and was not disappointed. All appetizers and entrees were excellent - and my group ate a mix of salad, seafood, and chicken. My only complaint is that the service was a little slow. It was 6pm on a Saturday and the restaurant was not crowded at all, but waitress seemed slow to take our order and slow to deliver drinks. Otherwise, A+.

    I had been to Chadwicks several times but on this particular Sunday evening the service was very haphazard. This is not typical and they might have been understaffed that night. The food is consistently good here and it seems to be one of the few restaurants where you can carry on an audible conversation even on a Saturday night. I do think they could lower their soundtrack a bit but at least the music isn't aversive.

    With great ambience, it is a warm and comfortable restauraunt with dimming lights and music at the perfect volume. The service was remarkably accommodating and pleasing. When I ordered my Chocolate Martini, it was a bit strong. The waiter noticed that I wasn't drinking it and asked if it was okay. When I told him it was a little strong, he took it back and made me a new one. Their bread was delicious, warm and crunchy! We all agreed that our appetizers and our main courses were outstanding. Of course at the end we couldnt pass up their dessert menu, which was absolutely delicious!!! If you're looking for a great atmophere, amazing food, wide variety menu and friendly service at a reasonable price, Chadwicks is the place to go.

    This was the first time we dined at Chadwicks. The Menu was quite varied, so I found it difficult to choose my entree. I like that they offered half and full portions on several items. The seafood Risotto was delicious!! So was the Banana creme Brulee pafait. Service was very good also. Decor was quite cozy. We will definitely be going back there.

    Dining at Chadwick's is as cozy and comfortable as having dinner at Grandmas, if your grandma was a trained gourmet chef. There is a unique quality of a welcoming atmosphere with outstanding culinary options. I can never go wrong no matter what I order, from the menu, or an inventive special for that evening!

    I've been to Chadwicks several times and each time is a GREAT experience. The food is AMAZING - appetizers, entrees, and desserts! I had the crabcakes for an appetizer and my friend had a "special" (shrimp with mango salsa) - SOOO GOOD! For dinner my friend had the "Stuffed PorkChop" and I had the "St. Peter's Fish." Again, it was just DELICIOUS and the presentation was so elegant. Dessert was the "English Trifle" and the "Banana Parfait"....UNBELIEVABLY GOOD. CHECK THIS PLACE OUT....You won't be disappointed!!

    I have been to Chadwichs many times and always enjoyed the occasion. This time I asked for an outdoor table and the maître d' said he would set me up and get a drink order. I sat down and waited 20 minutes for him to come back, anyone to come. I found him inside chatting with customers. He said I'm coming. The couple next to me complained too. They had been waiting. He finally took an order, we had no water, no silverware and waited another 15 minutes to get a glass of wine, draft beer and coke. With the number of great restaurants in RVC I can find another with good service

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/23/2014
    We were seated next to the kitchen doors by the bar were it is noisy and we hear a bell from the kitchen every minute. Our server took well over 15 minutes to even take a drink order then ran off to get the wine before we could even finish a sentence and advise we had an appetizer order to place. We had to ask to switch tables to which the waiter found us a table then sat someone else there and came back and said whoops someone else is there now. We finally just walked out of the restaurant. The worst service and the menu was boring and plain. The wine list was limited as well and the food over priced. I will never ever ever go back it was horrible!!!!!!!!!!!
