Great lunches and atmosphere....Service is excellence and many choices, but prices are a bit expensive for lunch.

Great food as usual. Friendly, efficient service. Only issue we had was that there were a few families with small children who were rowdy & in 1 case, running throughout the restaurant. I appreciate that it is a neighborhood restaurant but parents need to be held responsible for their children’s behavior by the staff.

Bethanys Table is one of our favorite! Never had a bad meal and always good service! The lunch we went to had only one server and it really showed! It was a very busy day and it took too long to give our order, get our drinks and food not to mention paying our bill.

It won’t stop me from going back but I hope the scheduling will make sure there is enough staff!

Four of us went to Bethany's Table to celebrate our friend's birthday. I had never been there; the other three had. The service was good == I was particularly grateful that they were willing to exchange the wine that I ordered and didn't like. The food was excellent; two of the friends had pasta specials and the other two ordered off the menu. Appetizers were great -- nice to have a choice of how many you want to order. Having not been there before, I was a little surprised to find that it was in a shopping area. I guess I expected white tablecloths and such. Dessert came with a BD candle, which was a nice touch. I would go again!

Food was great. Service was outstanding at first but got forgotten later as the restaurant became more full. An acknowledgment/apology would have been appreciated.

Food and service is outstanding. But noise levels are higher than normal. It is hard to have or hear a normal conversation

We have been going to Bethany's Table for years and they never disappoint us. Due to the Valentine's Holiday, it was a little more congested than normal and service was slower for us than usual, but Chef Janet is spectacular. Highly Recommend!

I was disappointed when i showed up to find out that the menu was a flat fee - set menu for Valentine’s Day. I never received notification after i booked it - that i should expect such an evening. We eat there quite a bit and was really looking forward to a couple of our favorite dishes. Since we know the owners we didn’t feel comfortable leaving. Unfortunately, we spent way more money on food that we were not thrilled with. It was good - but disappointing.

Pros: Excellent food. Prix fix menu. Five courses. Delicious.

Cons: Service was slow. Two hours required for entire meal. Chairs weren't good enough for that. Restaurant was hot.

The beef tenderloin special was amazing. The brussel sprouts side dish was blah. Extremely bitter. And didn’t taste broiled st all. Salad felt light on dressing, which my wife who only likes small amounts of dressing felt was even light for her.

Good otherwise, just disappointed in the sides.

My wife and myself planned a dinning date night at Bethany's Table this weekend. The experience was a very candy and quiet place, with an outstanding service, and a great gourmet dinner. We are planning to come back with some friends next time. Congratulations, and keep it up with the same talent.

We've been to Bethany's table many times and unfortunately there is always one dish served that is very poor. This time, one in our party order the tenderloin stroganoff. To say it was not worth the money would be an understatement. It came with ONE small piece of meet--very tough--and a very watery so-called sauce. It was as though someone in the kitchen had not fully prepared or prepped the dish before the waitress brought it to the table. The family-sized smokey rogue salad was equally unimpressive. And lastly, the dessert menu in long overdue for an update. It has remained as is for a long time; there are not any truly tempting choices. I think the restaurant is resting on its past reputation.

My husband and I love the food and the restaurant for dinner. We go there frequently. I would go with friends for lunch more often if the lunch menu had more seafood items. I would love to see sea scallops on the menu more often. I am enjoying the lobster that's on the menu. Thanks so much. Best food in the area.

First time in and it WAS a wonderful experience starting with the host, server, table wait help and owner! We finally made reservations to celebrate our Anniversary here. Glad i did! We ordered the frites, the clam mushroom appetizer, beef strogonoff and chicken marsala. All were delicious! To start off, they gave us complimentary Prosecco to help us celebrate. Towards the end of our dinner, the owner was taste testing wine for their new menu selection and poured me a glass of a red blend. Overall, the dining experience and food were delightful. The only thing that may have improved this evening was the wait time for food was a little longer than i expected. They were very busy for a Monday evening. I should have expected this for the day before New Years Eve. We will definitely be back and highly recommend! Cheers!
