    It was great to come back here and it was better than ever. We sat outside, a little cool and the ambience was just OK, but who could do better these days? Shout out to the staff who were terrific to a person. I had buffalo chicken appetizer which was good, and the spinach ravioli and zucchini fries, both of which were excellent. I was delighted. My friend had the lobster roll which she said was great. We shared the sticky toffee pudding - excellent. Now I am looking for a reason to go back!

    The server asked for allergies and I said wheat. My salmon came out over some noodles that I had to ask about. Basically it was a “whoops”. Meanwhile my dinner guest ate his entire meal while I waited for a redo of my dish. No compensation for their huge mistake. Probably won’t be back.

    Service was not great. Waitresses never came back after meal was served to check on us. Water bottle was never refilled. Even the check with my credit card sat on the table for a long time despite most of the customers had left for the evening.

    Food was excellent with the exception of the rice bowl dish which was a salty mess. We sat outside to noise level was good. (This is not to say the noise level inside is not good. In the past I've always found it acceptable.)

    Seated on time, stayed longer than permitted under their policy but were asked politely to vacate the table. Food was fine, wine was very good, tho maybe a bit pricey. Service was excellent.

    We ate inside, where they have two charming rooms, with excellent service. The menu is not large, though it includes sandwiches and salads even at dinner, but the food that we ordered was quite good (including a sea bass special) and great fried calamari. The place is casual and friendly, perfect for a Sunday evening.

    Out table was ready at the time of the reservation, we did not have to wait, service was cordial and quick, the food was great The only caveat was that the espresso was a little cold, because the cup was not warmed up before pouring the coffee in it.

    Felt a little rushed. By the time we sat down, ordered, ate, and had our bill in hand, it had only been 45 minutes. Food was good and drinks were good but the feeling of being rushed took away from the experience overall. Would go back regardless!

    The food was fine and the service was good, I was surprised, though, to learn upon arriving for our 9 PM seating that the restaurants kitchen closed at 9:30. That should’ve been an indication of that upon booking. Made the meal a bit rushed. Food good though. Desserts were standout.
