    Wanted to love this restaurant. It has a lovely interior & great outdoor dining options. The food was good, not outstanding. The waiter was good when he was present, but he was not easily available. Maybe it was just the evening we went (Thursday at 5:15) but the service was painfully, painfully slow. Took weellll over 2.5 hours to have the meal and get out of there. Ruined the experience.

    Best Eggs Benedict ever! The Brunch menu is limited, but good. We also loved our Bloody Marys. Would love to return when the weather is warmer and we can sit out on the porch. They do have heaters out there, but it was still a bit too chilly to be outside.

    It took 30 minutes to get our drinks once ordering, we did not get bread however every other table did, it took over an hour and a half for our food to get there and when it did it was very dry. We got the local cheese plate for our appetizer, which did not have a variety of dried fruits and crackers as promised on the menu. The quality of the food was not equivalent to the price.

    We went back for an anniversary dinner; we got married at the Inn. The charcuterie board, chowder, steak frites and roasted chicken were all perfect and absolutely delicious. They make THE BEST amaretto sour drink I have ever had! Would love to know their secret. The waitress was super sweet and attentive, even though she appeared to be the only waitress in the restaurant. They were kind enough to offer us a free appetizer because it was our anniversary since we couldn't possibly fit in dessert.

    Food and ambiance were excellent. Service was good till the end when we waited 35 minutes for dessert and check. They did give the dessert for free due to the delay. It wasn’t very busy for a Sunday evening and the drink was very good. We weren’t asked about or given a refill during the meal.

    Please note - We have usually had wonderful food and service but this last time on 10/16 was not anything similar to the past. We have always had great experiences, and with the opening this past spring, amazing dining experiences with the restaurant obviously under the care of a very talented chef. Thirty Boltwood had become our favorite dining venue. I don't know what happened last night but the care and food were so bad that I feel that I need to share this in hopes of a correction. My husband and I brought our son to eat at the restaurant to celebreate his birthday. We arrived early, thinking an hour and a half would allow us a leisurely meal. After an hour and a half, we were still just finishing the main courses. The drinks were as amazing as always but no bread and no olives within the first half hour. When we asked about the bread, we were told that it was warming in the oven. It never came. When we asked about the olives, we were told they were still warming. They took over a half hour to arrive! Drinks with no food nor appetizers. Then the Caesar salad still had stems on the heads with grit in the lettuce arriving at about 45 minutes into our sit. The clam chowder was nothing like it was this spring and summer. Completely ordinary. The main courses arrived to a table that was not cleaned of plates so we all had to juggle removal for room for the next course. And the main courses were nothing more than pub food. It's the first time I've ever had to seek out salt and pepper shakers (which were not on the table) to add to sauceless and bland food. The steak frites that I ordered medium came raw on the inside and brown at the ends. No sauce, just a slab of meat. The green beans were barely cooked and simply steamed with no sauce; catsup from a squeeze bottle and fries were nothing

    This is a lovely restaurant in a beautiful inn. We were seated outside even though it was mid-Oct. with the help of heat lamps. The food was very good, as was the wine selection - Nicely generous pours. However, our waiter didn't check in to our table very often and we were never reserved water and had to ask twice. Didn't feel that the service matched the ambience and quality of the food.

    I made reservations for our Anniversary at 6:30 pm. We order right away. After some drinks, we wait until and the waitress came back at 7:20 pm to confirm our order bc a computer problem. We did not eat until 7:50 and the food was cold. Although they did not charge for the main entrees, the experience was not good, neither the food.

    It was my birthday, but even though I made it clear in the reservation and to the waiter the special occasion, we didn’t get anything for it. Many restaurants will offer a complimentary desert on an occasion like that. This was a bit disappointing.

    Fresh, crisp salads and a great olive oil cake and lemon sorbet. The very large burger and small, but very well-prepared skirt steak were local and well-prepared, both with medium-sized fries (not thin shoestring style, not fat Texas-toast style). We choose the indoor, air-conditioned seating, but there were also several nice table outside.

    I don’t even know where to begin! Booked a reservation to celebrate our 10yr wedding anniversary (this is where we had our reception!). We requested to be outside on the rooftop but it decided to storm JUST as we arrived. The host was so accommodating and told us we could choose wherever we would like to go- wait it out or choose another location. After snapping some photos around the venue we chose a spot and were greeted by Adam who was a wonderful server! Then we were greeted by another staff member who welcomed us and congratulated us on our anniversary. We enjoyed cocktails and apps, and were then surprised with a lovely specialty dessert. The service was above and beyond - Adam was super attentive, offered suggestions and recommendations and was so friendly. I may be biased since this place is so special to me already, but it truly felt just like the day we celebrated 10 yrs ago. THANK YOU for so many more great memories. :)

    Our cocktails were great (especially The Mammoth!). Our server (sorry don't think he shared his name) was outstanding. Perfectly timed visits to the table and had quick, great answers to all our questions. The food was outstanding (we both had the scallops special). The only slight critique was that the Caesar salad dressing was a little bland. We'll be back!
