Marie and Jenzi were great!!!!!!! The food was also excellent.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gemWe have eaten here many times and the food is always goo. There appears to be a new chef who has brought a new style. Beautifully prepared, small portions of delicious food. We ordered fruits and roots which was orange , fig and nuts. Different, but good. Also ordered gazpacho, again, different, smooth not chunky, but very tasy. Salmon was very nicely prepared with some veggies and again, delicious. We will continue to go back.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMRomance in the CityVery romantic atmosphere. knowledgeable staff and amazing food.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFourpaugh's great food great houseThe house is historic and the food is not.

A wide variety of flavors in one dish.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceIt had been awhile since I had been to Forepaugh's, but just as I remembered, the service was outstanding! Sometimes I think I go back more for the ambiance and the service more than the food, but it was a wonderful evening.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect way to experience dinnerHad a wonderful time.

The charm and architecture is a great place for special occasions, brunch or an intimate dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Brunch.We had an excellent time at this fabulous location. Overall the foods was good. The only reason I'm giving a lower rating for the food is that the quality for the under 12 y. o. wasn't as good as the one for adults. There is this misconception among restaurateurs that kids only eat chicken nuggets, fries and other things like that (mac and cheese, hamburgers, etc.). Kids enjoy exploring and responding to that curiosity falls onto the parents at home but with restaurateurs at the restaurant. The service was good (though slow at the beginning), very responsive afterwards. The food was fantastic from an adult perspective. The Chef did an excellent job with the Boeuf Wellington, and the quiche was delightful. No doubt we will return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the waitI have heard of Forepaugh's for more than 30 years but never seemed to get there. This year was the year. Should not have waited so long. The complete package for dinner and our anniversary. Will not wait for the next time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful eveningWe went to Forepaugh's for our wedding anniversary. The total experience was wonderful. The food was delicious. The I had the walleye and my wife had beef wellington. Both were excellent. The service was great. The manager greeted us with a "happy anniversary," and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was very relaxed and quiet. Diners are seated in the various rooms of the Victorian era mansion so there is more of an intimate, private feeling to the place, perfect for a romantic evenint. We were intrigued by the Victorian era house and asked if we could have a tour. The manager took the time to show us the entire house from third floor to the wine cellar. We will definitely return for future special occasions.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service littleGreat food, service little slow and not very attentive4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group of 10 seatedWe had a group of 10 seated in a very nice room on the third floor. Problem was that there was no way to gain the attention of any staff since they did not stay in that one room. There were times when 15 minutes passed with no one there.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday for my wife!Have been several times over the past few years; this was the most enjoyable time so far.

My date and I really loved everything we had. Our server was quite attentive. The only downsides are the price (easily $100+/person after drinks) and our server did not seem to know very much about the wine that was available. But I would still recommend this place to anyone looking for a special occasion.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful experience.We love Forepaugh's. Had our wedding reception there 15 years ago and like to visit on special occasions. Should visit more often!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA real treasure of a location.A real treasure of a location. The restored mansion is beautidul. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Menu was ambitious,if a little too ambitious. Squash soup too hot, my wife burned throat. Duck was good but too many surrounding flavors that competed rather than complemented the entree.
We were due to go to a show and server got us out right on time. Very enjoyable evening out.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTop rate in every way. WeTop rate in every way.
