  • An Italian birthday dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/18/2014
    This was our first visit here. We started with a shared order of steamed mussels in a tomato saffron broth. The mussels were excellent and there was homemade bread for sopping up the broth. My husband ordered the Seafood Fra Divolo, which included more mussels; shrimp; clams; scallops and calamari in a spicy tomato sauce over homemade pasta. He asked if he could have mild tomato sauce instead of spicy and the server assured him he could. I had pumpkin ravioli in a brown butter and sage sauce. Both of us brought home our leftovers. My husband and I love to cook and we tend to be picky-food-people when we eat out. This restaurant far exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful evening and thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. We will be back.

    Our server was totally business like and stuffy. He was straight to the point and not at all relaxed which made me feel uneasy. When you spend nearly $100 on a dinner for two and tip 20% you should feel at home, relaxed, as if you are visiting friends in their home. Would not go back again unless it was my dates choice. I work hard for my money and expected a bang for my buck!!!

    We took my parents to Lockkeepers to celebrate their anniversary. Our server, Amy seemed as if she was new. Although she was nice, she was not very attentive to our needs. She left us to look over the menus for close to ten minutes before checking on us! Needless to say, we had to wait quite a while for our food. The chef there is awesome, and he delivered! Everything was hot, delicious, and well-seasoned! I ordered the seafood risotto. The flavor was not as outstanding as the chicken dish I had the last time I was there, but it was fresh and creamy. My husband raved about their lasagna. All in all, it was a pleasant experience. They provided a complementary biscotti with chocolate sauce for my parents, and they enjoyed that!

    We had fond memories of the old Lockkeepers and tried the "new" one soon after it was completed. I admit, we were disappointed...the noise level was so loud that we could not carry on a conversation during dinner....too yuppie, maybe. It's been several years and we decided to celebrate our anniversary at Lockkeepers. It was an enjoyable experience..we will be back!

    We had a party of ten in the Sommelier room. It was perfect. We could tslk to everyone st the table. The ambience was very nice with the wine room on one side and windows to the main dining rom below on the other. Our waitress was excellent. The menu offered plenty of choices to satisfy everyone. This was a special occasion as we were all celebrating wedding anniversaries in August. We enjoyed it so much that we are planning to come back next year.

    Lockkeepers is a lovely restaurant. On this visit, we were celebrating an anniversary. We asked, in advance, for a nice table and we were seated in a corner booth with a round table. Nice because we could sit next to each other. The cocktails were nicely poured and the calamari appetizer was cooked perfectly, very tasty. Our dinners, the yellowfin tuna and diver scallops, were prepared and presented perfectly. We enjoyed a glass of the house pinot noir with dinner and it was delightful. Finally, our server surprised us with a mini dessert on the house! All in all, we had a truly enjoyable dining experience!

    Our party came at lunch time. We were fortunate to overlook the canal so our view was quite pleasant. The restaurant has a pleasing ambiance which was heightened by the low lights. There had been a storm and the electricity was out! The service was a trifle slow but all things considered we had a delightfully presented, tasteful lunch. Having valet service for our car was a very pleasant surprise!!
