We were celebrating my birthday. Our server was Lorraine, and she was cordial and efficient. Our cocktails--especially the cucumber martini--were delicious. Our meals were well-prepared, and Lorraine checked with us to make sure they were served at the right temperature. We were seated in front of the wood-burning fireplace, which gave the room a very cozy feel.

Our initial servicer was not welcoming and was not interested in telling us about the menu. We changed server after the initial server continued to be disinterested. The second server was very much improved but unfortunately, the first did not get eggs ordered as requested and thus this experience fell far short of what we hoped for an Easter Brunch.

My wife and I love the Belfry and our friends knew this so they gave us a gift card. We had a wonderful meal, once again! Eric was a fantastic and friendly host and Debra provided wonderful service; above and beyond. Patrick made a delicious drink... we’ll need to stop in just to sit at the bar soon! We’re looking forward to returning. Thank you to everyone at the Belfry! I hope I remembered everyone’s names correctly! :)

We got married at the Belfry, so it is always a joy to visit. Everything is impeccable, from food to wine to service to ambience in this thoughtful and beautiful space. Thanks to Chris for his incredible curating of a historical gem in the town of Sandwich, for creating this uplifting space for all to enjoy. We always leave feeling happy, satisfied, and genuinely inspired.

I had been wanting to go here for a while. I have heard great things. I reserved a table with Open Table and told them it was to celebrate a 60th birthday. When we were seated, the Host wished my friend a happy birthday, but that was the last of it. My friends are foodies and I was excited to treat them to a good experience. Her husband loved the clam chowder, she and I shared the Foie gras, which was almost burt to a crisp. I had the short ribs for the main course that was recommended and was good. Her husband had a cod dish which he like. She didn't say much about her pasta dish, which means it was just OK. For dessert, we ordered a eggnog Crème Brûlée that was hard, like it was old and unflavorful. We ordered the brownie sundae that was a square piece of brownie, a smear of hot fudge that was dried out and a dollop of whip cream. Very uninspired. Something was burt, not sure if was the brownie or the hot fudge. We mentioned to our waiter, and also that my friends birthday wasn't even acknowledged, even with a candle on the brownie. He ran away, but did remove the desserts from the check. I am guessing the regular chef was not working that Thursday night.

While the ambience is good but the food was less than to be expected. I have dined here before in the past and the food was exquisite but this occasion not one person in our party of 8 had a good meal. The cod was very dry and pasty, the meat was overdone, the duck was gamey, and our waitstaff took a long time to take our order for both drinks and the meal. This was on a day when the restaurant was half empty as well. While the location is one of a kind, in a renovated church, the food and waitstaff left much to be desired. I would have hoped for almost $500 to give my out of town guests more of an experience.

We went there for our Anniversary Saturday. We ordered the 3 course dinner and the waitresse told us it was small portions. We said how small and she said very tiny . Well we figured it was on the menu it couldn’t be that small . She didn’t look happy. She made us feel so uncomfortable after that . She brought us our 3 courses out so quickly. She barely made eye contact with us or spoke to us . We couldn’t wait to leave. We would of been better off eating at the brown jug and having pizza. Most likely will not be back . So much for celebrating 35 years of marriage at Belfry’s .

Huge disappointment. We booked this well in advance for a special occasion and had informed the restaurant that we had read about the beautiful ambiance and were excited to experience it. Well...when we arrived they led us through the main dining room with high ceilings, lovely stained glass windows and piano player, past several tables that would have fit our party of eight, and into a small, ugly side room with low ceilings, where we were seated in the furthest corner. I attempted to find the host to ask about switching tables, but he had disappeared and no one knew where he was. It was fully 10 minutes before the server even approached our table to greet us (she apologized). Another long wait before she came back to take our drink order (more about that in a minute) and between each course. The table was not cleared between courses. Dirty dishes from the appetizers were still on the table when the main course arrived. We had to collect them ourselves to make room for the main course. The server could not answer my questions about the extensive wine list. She did not offer to bring a sommelier who could have answered the questions. When they then could not find two bottles of the Russian River Pinot Noir I had ordered, the manager acted as if that was, somehow, my fault. Why not come to the table and explain and offer a substitution? Was it too far a walk from the lovely main dining room? In fact, no one ever came by our table to ask if we were enjoying the meal. The staff (with the exception of our overworked server) acted as though they were annoyed to be working and were doing us a huge favor letting us dine there. The food was fine...nothing special and certainly not worth the prices (and I say that as a New Yorker who has eaten in many an expensive restaurant worth the price). I had been looking forward to celebrating a very special milestone in what would have seemed to be a special restaurant. It was not. We will never return.

This was our 3rd visit to the Restaurant. The first two were quite satisfying. However, the last visit (on Sat\ night 10/28) was very disappointing. We invited two friends to join us for dinner. Two orders were of the monkfish. At a price of $28, the portion was very small and the quality was average. The fish was dry. There were hardly any other sides included with this dish. The other two meals were the salmon. It was served in some kind of watery broth that had no real taste. There was also very little added on the plate. The menu said rice noodles, which was a dried array of noodles that had very little taste. All in all, it was a very disappointing meal. We walked out hungry and felt that we clearly overpaid for a meal that was not worth the price.
