We visited prior to the Patriot's playoff game vs Tennessee and it was a smart choice. The Lafayette House has loads of character and is a neat spot to visit and they did a great job of hosting hungry fans prior to the game. You could order off the menu or opt for a huge buffet spread they assembled. The food was very good as was the service. I would most certainly make the same decision again!

Spent a few hours dining before the Patriots game. There was a special buffet for the occasion with meatballs, ziti, salad, 2 types of chicken wings, salmon, a carving station with turkey and roast beef. It was a good value.

We sat in the lounge and watched the early NFL playoff game. Enjoyed drinks and dinner, football and friends.

Great time

Great food and the waitress was very good as well. We went for New Years Eve and even though it was crowded the noise level was ok. My husband had prime rib, it was cooked perfectly. I has the scrod and it was a great size and was very good.

Our gathering was a belated celebration of Christmas. Lafayette does a wonderful job of decorating for the Christmas season, so it is the perfect atmosphere. The food is always good; and last Saturday was no exception. Each of us had a different meal, equally enjoyed. Wait staff was very pleasant and helpful.

My daughter and I were to celebrate Christmas there as it was just the two of us before we went to the airport for flights in different directions . Our table was not ready so we were asked to sit in the bar. When trying to get a drink, my daughter was told the bartender could not serve if we had a table. I then went up and told him we had a table in the bar. He refused to serve me saying he was too busy with the waiters. At my table I saw a man go up and order two glasses of wine - I called the hostess over and asked why he refused to serve us but is serving the male customer? At that point the bartender came over and yelled I was going to serve you - I did not refuse to serve you! I said he did refuse us and then served the man. He was very angry and asked my daughter what she wanted ( did not ask me) My daughter asked for Malbec and he said he did not have Malbec- my daughter pointed out the bottle of Malbec on the bar. He didn’t say anything but brought the glass of wine over and took our money and yelled loudly saying “Next year I’ll just tell all the bartenders that they cannot spend Christmas with their family.” At that point I went to the bar and asked for our money back saying we were leaving. He said fine and handed me back my money. I told the hostess to cancel the reservation. We left and went to Legal Seafood. We later googled the restaurant to send a complaint and found out HE was the owner!! I have never been so badly treated in a restaurant- I was dumbfounded- he is an abusive angry man who has no business dealing with the public. In addition we also observed him pouring leftover wine back into the bottle and scooping ice with the glasses ( which anyone in the restaurant business knows shouldn’t be done) and it may even be illegal! I will never step foot in that restaurant again and I will let everyone I know of this horrible person and experience! You should also remove them from Open Table

We had a fantastic brunch on Christmas Day. Shrimp, salad , beef, turkey, fish and assorted vegetables. There was a dessert selection of creme brûlée, pudding and a chocolate tower!
Excellent food, service and value.
Looking forward to the next meal at Lafayette House.

Eleven of us gather most December’s for a Christmas and Birthday celebration. They accommodated this year’s gathering well putting us at the back of the large and beautifully decorated dining room - a perfect place since we had two pre-schoolers with us.

Thanksgiving the prices were inflated, noise level was very high, and waitress was pleasant, but overworked. The host was very stressed, due to the busy day. Reservations were running 15 minutes late, and request for a quiet side table ( for 3) was not honored. Salad was stale.

I had requested through Open Table that there were Vegetarian options for myself. There was only one, roasted vegetables. That was alright, but to than charge us for two classic Thanksgiving dinners ($32 each) and be told by our waitress "that was what I was told to charge you" is unacceptable. Obviously, we were not going to pay that amount at which point the waitress abruptly scooped up the check to make the change. We realize she and the restaurant was quite busy that day, but I was disappointed that a restaurant of their caliber would try to "stick it" to consumers that way. Needless to say, we will not be dining there again.

The Lafayette House was built in 1785...nine years after the American Revolution...for that reason alone...go there. Very good food, terrific ambiance, excellent service. We went for Thanksgiving dinner, but wound up ordering shrimp and steak. Both very good. It was a full house, but didn't feel crowded...it felt nice, warm and friendly. I made reservations and was readily seated. We even met the proprietor - great guy Ron - can't recall his last name. Highly recommend this gem.

Don't bother. This had to be the worst meal I've had in a very long time. Completely overpriced. My husband had to send back his meal because it wasn't cooked properly and then only took 2 bites. He NEVER does this. Menu on Open Table was nothing like the actual menu. I was hoping for Yankee Pot Roast at $19 and had to go with Short Ribs for $28 which were ALL fat. What a waste of money. The only people who seem to like it here are older people. So if you're under the age of 55, I would highly recommend skipping this place. So many better places to go that are nearby.

We (my girlfriend and I) made our reservations for 7pm on Saturday 9/9. We got there and were seated right away. People came in after us and were seated behind us and were given attention to before we even saw our waitress. Our waitress ended up being the same waitress as the people that came in after us and were being served before us.

To make a long story short, we only saw our waitress once every 20 minutes (from what I could see, she only had two tables) so why on earth would it take so long to get to us.

Clam chowder came out COLD.. had to send back .. my girlfriends seafood dish came out cold and my baked potato was cold. We would of sent it back but it took over an hour to get our food ordered and brought to us.
So we didn’t dare send it back and have to wait another hour to get our food back.

The people that came in after us, also had their food cooked wrong and sent it back.

So all in all, it was not a pleasant experience. It was our first time (and last time) going there, so maybe it was just an off night for them. But for the price they charge EVERYTHING should be perferct.

Stopped in prior to a show at Gillette, the parking is great, the restaurant was air conditioned and the service was very good. I enjoyed the salad (wedge) and shared that, along with the chicken salad wrap with a friend, plenty of pre-show lunch. Easy walk to the venue afterward and easy out onto Route 1 for the trip home. I would visit again for a leisurely lunch or romantic dinner. Charming, old decor
