waiter thought it helpful to loudly check in 10 times, interrupting our conversation frequently, very odd as well as annoying. our salads were great, my dinner was so bad i could not eat it, it was not at all as described. another waiter stopped by to say another customer thought it was awful as well. all they offered was to buy my salad. i've been a high-end restaurateur in manhattan, their concept of hospitality is appalling-- the $20 difference in not refunding the meal has never happened to me anywhere in any state any country in the world, tho I don't recall ever being unable to eat a meal. I eat out 150+ times/year. bad.news.

Dinner was disappointing and service, too. Steaks were fatty, Ceaser salad too pasty. Salmon portion was a cheap end cut. Mussels were raw and not eaten. Waiter didn’t even ask why. And, what really annoyed me, waiter talked me into a raspberry cocktail when I wanted a cosmo not Hawaiian Punch I didn’t drink it and he didn’t even notice or care. Eat at Marsh Tavern for a real meal worth the $. .

The restaurant was beautiful. We felt very safe, and the staff and restaurant itself felt very clean and comfortable. It was the first time we have eaten inside a restaurant since March.
Unfortunately we didn't bring our cell phones as we were celebrating a special occasion and wanted to be present, this meant we were not able to look at a cocktail list. I would have loved to be alerted and we would have brought at least one phone.
The apps were amazing. Fresh and delicious.
The venison was definitely over cooked, and my burger was charred. I do like it well done, but for that kind of class and price I really expected them to be able to pull off a well done burger without burning it.

In the end our very nice waitress had a problem with my card. We used another and checked when we got back to the room. My card had been charged twice, along with my partner's card. Totally hundreds of dollars now pending and on hold in my account, while there had been plenty to begin with. I am sure it was some kind of tech error but it certainly complicated things and 2 days later the money is still not yet back in my account.

The bathroom inside the hotel room was freezing there was no heat in it we were told to leave the door open so the heat could go in. the restaurant was filthy! we saw food on the floor and fingerprints all over the counter where we were sitting at our table eating breakfast. The male host who seemed to be the manager at the restaurant desk seemed to be very stressed, and not friendly or welcoming. This is a dog friendly hotel if you are not aware (we were not!)

Thank you for addressing your concerns with us as we will provide additional training to our staff. We spend a significant amount of time cleaning the restaurant, however it seems we need to take a little more notice. Bummer about the heating issues, please direct those concerns to the hotel staff as restaurant staff does not have the training to fix mechanical issues in the rooms! We hope that it was resolved! Happy New Year!

Was prefix which we understand, however the choices were very poor, not a single chicken dish, we have a guest with severe sea food allergies and not a single concession was made. ,,,they just said you can order the steak and lobster dish and we will just serve you the small piece of steak. Just a terrible main course menu. We are very frequent guests 1-2 twice per week and it will be some time when we do if ever come back

Our waiter who was doing double duty waiting on tables and taking orders did a great job. Very friendly and accommodating. The place was very festive for the holidays. The prices are a little high (resort hotel) but the quality was excellent! Our second time dining there and is next door to the Inn at Manchester where we like to stay. We’ll definitely be back.

Lovely place, nice people. A smidge overpriced. Wish our burgers had been cooked mid rare as requested. But they were still juicy at near well done, so we didn't send them back. The two tables within earshot had already complained about overcooked expensive beef, so it felt like it would be piling on. We'll try it out again someday after covid.

The seasonal selections were fresh and very well prepared. A food allergy was handled simply without any fanfare or consternation, a very welcome change. Recommendations from staff were spot on and cocktails were on par with other top-shelf provisions from all over the world (San Diego, Austin, Dallas, Boston, Washington, Seattle, Charlotte, Miami, Los Angles, Tulum, Bern, Istanbul, Braç, Venice). The bread pudding was rich and velvety and thankfully not too sweet.

Honestly super dissatisfied and disappointed. Looked and sounded great online. Beautiful clean restaurant, just did not deliver. Our server/bartender wasn't overly friendly or informative at all. The food for the price was completely underwhelming and not worth the value. A $29 frozen burger? A limp flavorless Caesar salad that had a hair in it. Just not great quality, nothing seemed cooked from scratch or farm to table like they advertise. I would not come back here- on-top of it I made a note on my reservation that it was my fiancés bday and it never even got brought up or acknowledged. Such a shame because its located in a beautiful high end lodge and they could really benefit if they weren't so mediocre.
