We were disappointed with the GF menu. The online menu looked really good, but when we ordered, there were very few options compared to the online menu. My wife and I have a stricked diet for health reasons and were looking forward to a safe new place to eat out. Not that it matters, but we won't be back.

The service was fantastic as well as the food. I do have to comment on a particular young lady that works for you. I feel horrible I didn’t get her name because she was the type of employee we all wish we had (we own our own business). She wasn’t our waitress but she filled our water and brought out our food and always had a smile on her face. She told us she was having fun 😊 I saw her through out the night and she was non stop she never slowed down. She did have red hair if this helps with her identity. You should feel so fortunate to have an employee like her.

We went here for our Valentine's Day dinner. Food was yummy...recommend the Fried Goat Cheese appetizer and the Maple Cinnamon Creme Brulee was delicious. Decent beer options too.

My Mom and I meet my sister who lives in CT in Sturbridge for dinners -m we've tried various restaurants - this one was a real find - it was my birthday - our server could not have been nicer, and as professional and elegant as any you might find in Boston or NYC fine dining restaurant. We enjoyed both small plates and normal entrees - the food was delicious, the wine selections were quite nice as were the specialty cocktails. All future dinners will be here!

Food quality was excellent, and prepared exactly as asked. Tables are very close to each other, difficult to have a private conversation. They appeared to be understaffed. Observed our first and second rounds of completed cocktails each sitting on the bar, waiting for delivery. Each round was finally delivered about 10 minutes after preparation. Appetizer was also sitting around before delivery and was not hot.

Just about everything on the menu could be adjusted for gluten free, and wait staff was very knowledgeable in helping me choose items. The only downside was no separate fryer, so nothing fried is safe for celiac or wheat allergies. The gluten free mac & cheese was excellent, rich creamy, definitely not low cal! And the gluten free pasta is cooked in it's own pot of water, so no cross contamination.

We made reservations on the fly and were delighted to be seated even though we were 15 mins early. They greet us by name at the door and are always pleasant and happy. Mac and cheese was to die for and the chef special empanadas were excellent! Our go to place in Sturbridge!

We were two couples each driving about an hour to dine (lunch) and catch up after many months w/o seeing each other. The Grille was perfect for that, as it had been a year before. We could hear each other well at our corner table (reserved well in advance), and the food, creative and delicious, was fine from first course to last. Unlikely that you've had mac & cheese like theirs, or burgers or almost anything else. Service too was fine: attentive but not overbearing. We're looking forward to next year's meal there.

Came with family to celebrate my sister's new job - she requested we come here for the food and we weren't disappointed! Side salads were far tastier than your typical boring garden or caesar, lobster gnocci was perfectly cooked, and the sides with the roast for two (mashed potatoes and garlic green beans) were divine. We asked if a summer cocktail could be recreated and the bar set us up! Everyone loved the various drinks with unique flavor combinations (lavender and gin drinks were a particular hit). Best of all, the great food was complemented by phenomenal service - attentive, but not pushy.

Terrific Chicken Caesar Salad, my date had the Grilled Cheese which she said was very good. A little bit crowded and noisy where we were (a smallish room with tables very close) but this was a holiday season day so crowds were to be expected. And if the rest of the food was as good as ours, then it is no wonder that a lot of people like to eat there.

The place is broken up into several different dining areas. If I had my seating choice I would prefer to be in one of the areas which had a little more room.

Would definitely go back again.

The food was excellent. We enjoyed the Crazy Dates to start. Then I had a chef's special salad with kale and kumquats. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. My only minor complaint is that I made reservations in advance, but they wanted to seat us in the bar. When I asked for a dining room table it was accommodated.

Our waitress was inattentive, they made us wait even with a reservation and directed us to a bar, which was full (obviously the hostess was lost on trying), it took 30 mins to ge our whine and 50 to get our water, they brought bacon to the vegetarian and she had to wait while we all ate, the waitress didn’t even think to take it off our bill...we had a wonderful night at Old Sturbridge village and it was ruined with this subpar experience.

My long-time friend and I recently lunched at the Cedar Street Grille in Sturbridge, MA. The lunch menu was somewhat limited to small plates, salads, and sandwiches. We both ordered the Lobster Casserole small plate with a house salad. The lead was fine. My friend asked for some bread to have with the salad and it never came. The lobster casserole was a huge disappointment. It was a pastry shell swimming in a stew-like conglomeration of diced potatoes, carrots, and other vegetables. Mine had only 3 small pieces of lobster and there was an herb flavoring in it that I didn't care for. I couldn't eat most of it even though it cost
$18.00. I would have been happier with a salad, but wanted to try something different. I won't be returning.
