    The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our table but we received many apologies and were given complimentary drinks to make up for the wait. The only negative aspect was the noise from the bar area - the music was quite intrusive. Otherwise, a great meal, and we will definitely go again.

    I have never been treated so well in a restaurant. We were celebrating my husbands birthday as a family. Our table wasn't ready and we had about a 25 minute wait. It wasn't a problem, we understood that people were finishing up their dining experience. However, upon being seated, the manager sent us an assortment of appetizers and after dinner, an assortment of desserts. This has never, ever happened, and we've waited for tables before and sometimes longer. The entire family was impressed. This was our first visit, but we will be back, and we will definitely rave to our family and friends about the phenomenal service. The food was fantastic! The staff was attentive and friendly. Ten stars in my book!

    LockKeepers is a physically beautiful restaurant, with high ceilings and very tasteful appointments; our server, Emily, was absolutely outstanding (not once did I even ASK to have my beverage refilled), and anything that my dining companion or I requested was at our table in seconds. Speaking honestly, though, the food was a disappointment. My veal parmigiano ($36) was sizable but unremarkable, with three cheese discs just sort of thrown on, and my friend's pork chop saltimbocca ($27) suffered from a certain sameness of taste and texture. The appetizers were stronger, with a flavorful carpaccio ($11) and a nicely varied antipasto ($15). However, my companion summed it up well as we were driving home: "It was good, but not $122 good."

    In making the reservation, I asked for a table with a view because our party was celebrating our 13th anniversary. Expecting a window seat, instead, we were escorted to the private "Sommolier Room" for a private dining experience. High above the dining room with a windowed-off view of wine storage, we were able to enjoy a long, delicious meal with great conversation. Our server was excellent -- friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. He recommended a mid-priced Magneta Malbec that was absolutely delicious. The food was quite good, especially the salads and appetizers. The entree specials were excellent. The veal could have been a tad more tender, and a chicken dish was not as good as the others, but those are minor complaints.

    Although we had heard of LockKeepers for years we had never been and were not disappointed. All pasta is made in house and mine was excellent. I had the seafood and it was loaded with mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops and calamari. Just as good leftover for lunch the next day...a bonus! Salads were fresh and enough to share which we hadn't realized. Pork chop tender and good. The ambiance wasn't anything to rave about and was noisy even though room was only half full. Service was first rate.

    A couple of clients came into town the other night, and I took them to LockKeepers for dinner - which proved to be an excellent choice as usual. Both the service and the food ( I had the grilled salmon) were excellent. The ambiance was outstanding. Random note: Their fresh brewed iced tea might be the best I've ever had. Also I highly recommend the eggplant appetizer - Delicious!

    This was the second time my fiancee and I have been to Lockkeepers, and this visit was equally as great as the first. We had a great server, and the entire wait staff took great care of us without being obtrusive. The pumpkin ravioli was great, as was the chicken scallopini. It was definitely worth every penny!

    I decided to book a romantic evening out at Lockkeepers based on other reviews. The ambiance was very nice and service was good however, the food was average at best. If the menu changed I would consider going back but I can get the quality of food at half the price in a local ma and pop place.

    Great for a special occasion. Beautiful inside, though a bit noisy so not too romantic. Great food. We did feel a bit rushed by the staff, they wanted us to order apps & dinner at the same time. Would have liked to relax and order an after dinner drink.

    Lockkeepers has always been a step above the majority of restaurants and they continue to be very much so this October, 2014. However, right now the extraordinary offering of pumpkin dishes from appetizers to salads, to entrees is phenomenal. And at least those I was able to try were exceptionally well executed and just plain delicious. Not to be forgotten are the eggplant rollatini appetizer, among many others. Bon appetit guaranteed here.

    I had the seafood risotto that was doe perfectly. Each piece if seafood was tenderly cooked to perfection. The risotto, which I know takes a long time to be cooked to a creamy but not mushy consistency, was divine. My husband is a great Italian cook, and risotto is one of my favorite dishes he makes. I have to say (anonymously) that Lockkeepers was even better! The salads were enormous, so if you just want a small dinner salad before your meal, order one and split it with someone. Dinner portions were so generous we couldn't even look at the dessert menu. Maybe next time!

    Took the day off work to be lazy, and added a lunch on the patio at Lockkeepers. My niece joined me for a beautiful afternoon on their patio, overlooking the river/canal. I had the chef special lunch, including a tomato-basil-artichoke soup, a fennel-mushroom salad, and a braised beef risotto. The soup was wonderful, and the salad surprisingly tasty. The Risotto not so much. But our waiter took excellent care of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our decadent afternoon!

We both had a beautiful and large salad, a Frank's and a Caesar. We both had Italian dishes that were prepared perfectly and very delicious. Our wait-person was Jackie and she was very attentive, as was the entire staff. Highly recommend!!
