    Scrod with cracker crumbs was bad. Fish undercooked. But other 3 diners enjoyed their meals. Very loud, especially on Tuesday night. Party of 12 in the same room and VERY LOUD.

    This has been one of our favorite restaurants for years. In many ways, it’s a remnant of an earlier time. A beautiful, historical old building— it’s a pity to see it almost empty as we did on a Sunday afternoon recently. The menu is more limited than it used to be: no more lobsters or clams or mussels. No tournedos or duckling. But we had an excellent fillet, delicious and cooked just right. Onion soup was very good, if just a tad salty; nice, fresh salad with homemade blue cheese dressing. We had no complaints at all. The service is efficient and prompt; friendly, though not effusive (which is how I prefer it). It’s probably. Or as polished around the edges as it used to be, but everything was fine. Special requests were handled politely and helpfully. The Lafayette House has worn its age well. Not as “special” as it was in the old days, when every room was packed and families dressed in their Sunday best to come here. But the quality is still excellent; prices are reasonable. Try it before it’s too late; it won’t be around forever, I’m afraid.

    Excellent old school dining experience. Beautiful historic restaurant with excellent, very fresh traditional fare. Very convenient location in route 1 in Foxboro- close to Gillette and the Xfinity center. Great beers on tap. Looking forward to going back.

    The food was excellent (there aren't many places left where you can get liver and onions done to perfection), the service was outstanding (thanks, Laura), and cheesecake was amazing. Perfect place to celebrate an anniversary dinner. We will be back again and again.

    Lafayette House having problems. Menu is much smaller than what OpenTable shows and they did not have somethings that were on the small menu. Lafayette House also having staffing problems as our waitress was working our room , acting as hostess and working a party in another room. She did the best she could under the circumstances.

    we travel a distance to dine at this historic restaurant for many of our family celebrations. we have never been disappointed. the food was absolutely delicious, as usual. our server has been with the restaurant for over thirty years, as has a number of the staff. she has served us on numerous occasions. this restaurant dates back to the revolutionary war. it was a way station for the coaches of that era. i keep wanting to dress in the period style whenever we go there. i can't say enough good things about this restaurant. it is one of the few restaurants that i would never hesitate to recommend!

    We went to Lafayette House for a Friday Night dinner before Mother's Day. We dined at 6 in their cozy dining room and had delicious meals and service. We started with drinks and fried calamari. The drinks were generous and the calamari delicious. My husband had chicken parm and I had the steak tips. Both had generous portions and cooked perfectly.

    Easter brunch. They actually had an early buffet and a later one starting at 2pm (or so). Our reservations were for 1:30pm, so we got best of both. Judy was a fantastic and attentive waitress. Food was really done well. I’d recommend it to anyone. The price was def expensive for the six of us plus drinks, but I think we got good value so that’s the main thing.

Meal was presented in a perfect appearance! Delicious, a 4.5! Steak was just a touch over down on one side (hot spot on grill?) We will definitely be back! Very happy overall.
