  • "This was our first visit and we enjoyed it very much. The best crab bisque and lobster bisque we have ever had. Steak was cooked more rare than to liking(ordered med well) but was still very good. Service was very good. Would def recommend to others!"

  • "The ambiance was spectacular, both simple and eloquent. I was greeted by a very pleasant and knowledgeable staff who worked collaboratively and cohesively to make sure all of our needs were met in a very timely and professional manner. For our first course, my husband and I shared the Oysters 213 and a Smoked Marget Duck Breast. I enjoyed a wonderfully prepared Lobster Alanoge with a delicious tarrigon bure blanc sauce and my husband ordered a very generously portioned Veal Florentine, beautifully presented. For dessert we shared the Banana Split 213, which was cradled in an almond praline basked. Although I rarely write reviews, I had to take the time to highly recommend this establishment."

  • "Restaurant 213 offered a truly wonderful dining experience. The food was delicious, fresh and creative. The crab cakes are outstanding! The service was excellent - friendly and knowledgable about the menu! The owner and chef Jim Hughes graciously made his way around the room at the end of the evening greeting and thanking his guest. He is truly lovely and extremely passionate about food, quality and his customers overall dining experience. The results are an evening that will not disappoint even the toughest of foodies! I look forward to coming back to Restaurant 213 again and again!"

  • "Treated ourselves to a gourmet experience. Food was spectacular in presentation and taste and generous in portion, service was warm and attentive, atmosphere intimate. For Valentine's Day there were even scattered rose petals in he ladies room! (and hand lotions and a mouthwash dispenser with little cups-first I'd seen that thoughtful touch) A wonderful time! We were lucky to reserve the last table, So don't dilly dally-this town knows a great restaurant!"

  • "cozy and inviting; music just loud enough, Sinatra-style; food is spectacular! We had a party of six. Some ordered off menu, others ordered specials - all choices were fabulous. Be aware that its not cheap, but worthy of special occasions."

  • "Not only was every course well presented, but they kept introducing "extras". We had ordered appetizers, entre and desert but we also received excellent bread, a small sipper of a blended vegetables in a soup, a palate cleaner sorbet and to take home a couple of scones. The wine list is second to none on Delmarva and possibly the state. Less than half the tables were occupied which we found interesting based on our excellent experience. It was one of the more expensive dining evenings we have had in quite some time, well worth it, but something not to be done on a regular bases (although we did not skimp). We will be back!"

  • "My wife and 2 children aged 11, who understand which fork to use, enjoyed a wonderful dinner here friday night before an ice skating show. We were not the first to arrive and were greeted warmly. The table was properly set. The waitress was attentive, understanding and commented on the educated palettes of our young ones. The wine list was impressive for the good labels at reasonable prices. All said, the real reason one would travel over an hour to find this hidden gem is the food. The steaks were melt in your mouth, the lobster ravioli was superb and disappeared in a blink of the eye and the escargot was baked in the shells and delicious. This was a wonderful meal and a restaurant that I plan to visit again, I just wish it was in Easton."
