Valentine’s Day dinner-table was ready, service was attentive and food was great. Tough to find a more charming spot; though a bit noisy (I wear hearing aids so I am particularly sensitive).

My wife and I love The Essex. She had oysters and the lobster risotto and couldn’t stop raving. I had filet mignon. It was excellent. Although The Essex isn’t a steakhouse, this steak was as good as anything I’ve eaten in the best steakhouses. As always, the service and ambience were great.

This is a great place to share a special dinner. In our case, it was a delayed Valentine's Day dinner. This Inn has such a romantic warmth and feel. The food is exquisite. And the service makes you feel very special.

We were met on entry by a pleasant hostess who confirmed our reservation and took us to a quiet table for two near the fireplace. I had some confusion regarding a gift certificate and this was quickly resolved. Our server brought us drinks, read the specials and gave us time to settle in. Our...
