The food was excellent. My friend and I ordered Citrus Scallops for the appetizer and the scallops were cooked perfectly. For the entrees, I ordered the Roasted Vegetables Pannini with sweet potatoes fries and my friend ordered the Burger. We both enjoyed our dish very much. Will define go back there again soon.

Cozy place with good food. However, at Manhatten prices and very small portions! Hadn’t been in a few years and were looking forward to a nice meal and hoping to return. Based on our experience we will not be. It’s a shame but there’s too many restaurants that offer good food at a value to match where we don’t leave disappointed.

3 people found that our orders were not as described, in that ....for instance, the beef stew had 2 SLICES of beef in it...our experience with 'stew' is chunks of beef, not slices......the eggplant was indistinguishable (another dish) and I surely would not order it again.
Both dishes were tasty but surely not what we expected. We have visited this restaurant many times and eager to return, but truly disappointed.
They did give us a free dessert for 3 people.

One complaint at out Valentine’s Day dinner - the music was dreadful and too loud. More appropriate to a pizza joint than a fine restaurant.

We started with Cauliflower Bread Sticks and the Lamb Meatballs, both were very Delicious. The goat cheese dill aioli on the Lamb Meatballs was my favorite. My wife had the NY Strip Steak and I had the Duck Breast. The ducks perfectly cook with a nice crisp skin. I also enjoyed the Rosemary bread pudding. I will be going back.

We had a table for 4 in the front window and we all had a fabulous time! We had heard great things about the chef and we were not disappointed. Our server, Rose, was a delight and very attentive but not overly so. We all had the special of the evening, a pork chop dish that was fantastic. The desserts were wonderful as well!

Disappointing. We went on a Saturday, had not been in a few years and remembered our numerous dinners being creative, attractive, fun and delicious with very good service. This time was very disappointing. Food was good but not creative or delicious and overpriced. My wine was very good but the smallest poor I've received in recent history. Service was mediocre at best. While we were checked on by staff the timing wasn't very good. Our appetizer arrived in decent time but the main course took 45 minutes at least from the time we finished the first course. We also felt rushed after receiving our main as the staff kept asking if we were finished yet and could they clear - despite having plenty of food left on our plates. I guess we weren't allowed to take a break and enjoy each other's company....

This is currently one of my favorite restaurants. It is farm to table in style with quality fresh ingredients. It has wonderful soups, salads and omelettes. Most are chock full of fresh vegetables. The atmosphere is relaxed with a country feel and the wait staff is attentive and professional.

The food was very good- excellent and quality ingredients. Would like to go back during the warm weather and eat outside. Our waiter was very attentive and informative. Parking was a problem for one person who arrived late. Ordered from the lunch tasting menu- $20 which of course was reasonable for two courses but the soup was only 3 ozs. But it is costly to source good ethical food

Bailey’s always is a great experience. I celebrated New Years Eve with friends. Service was great, not rushed, but prompt.

Food was delicious. Cauliflower soup and scallops both were great.

The restaurant is small, but cozy.

I went with 4 irlfriends and we had enjoyed a delicious brunch with excellent friendly service. The restaurant was busy but no overly crowded so they let us sit and chat with no pressure to order or vacate the table.
I had the best eggs benedict ever!!
