Experience was and always is fantastic! Our most favorite place to dine in MA. Food, service and quantity….outstanding!
Waitstaff extremely attentive. Sarah G. Went out of her way to timely meet any needs we had. Host most gracious. Food is always perfectly prepared . Always hot! I had short ribs and husband had pork chop. I looked up from my plate 5 minutes after and everything GONE from his plate. Worth the trip in every respect.

A wonderful meal and service. It was marred by the noise level. My friend and I had to shout across the table to hear each other. The wines were good and my favorite dish was the brie with mushrooms

Took a very long time to get pre-dinner cocktails. When the entrees came we ordered glasses of wine and it took so long for them to be delivered that we were done with our meals. Not happy about that!

An excellent restaurant, that has retained its standards over a long period. I've eaten at Bullfinchs many years ago, and was happy to see that they offered outdoor seating, and reservations for outdoor reservations.

The staff, and signage was very clear, and well documented - masks are required indoors, and tables were well spaced out. I felt comfortable dining here.

The food was excellent, and included vegetarian, and allergy respectful options. The buffalo cauliflower, and the vegan bowl were exceptional. The wine list, and the dessert were excellent.

I will be back!

Food was ok. We would have expected for it to be better for the price. I ordered lamb and it was chewy and not seasoned. It was served on a plate of unseasoned cooked onions and on a huge glob of feta cheese with a lot of olives on the side. It seemed like there wasn’t much effort put into the dish at all. Throw some cheese, olives and onions on a plate.

The most frustrating part was the rudeness from the man at the front. I came in behind my friends. They walked in and he stopped me and said in a very rude, abrasive and condescending tone “you have to wear a mask in the dining room but I guess we must not have a sign outside”. Did I miss the sign? Apparently. I don’t mind wearing a mask. I had one in my bag. I understand the ask and agree, however, we do not live in this town and did not know it was required. Yes, our mistake for missing the sign but a reminder would have been fine. Instead of unwelcoming, rude and condescending behavior.

We won’t be back here. For the quality of food, any chain restaurant is comparable.

One of my friends lamb chops was mostly fat. Not up to their usual standard. I had tuna which was a little dry.

Bread and butter were excellent with couse flaked sea salt. Pizza was awesome! Mussels needed more seasoning and less butter as they were very greasy. Duck had great flavor but was very dry. The pork chop was thin and over cooked. Disappointing as the restaurant was very quaint and had a lot of promise. Will try it again if we are in the area.

Food was amazing! We ordered the goat cheese app and it was delicious. My husband had the black and blue fillet and devoured it. I had the lamb chops which were sooo good. The desserts were great too - crème brulee and berry crumble with vanilla ice cream. All around amazing food.

The Filet mignon was PERFECT. The Pork chop was also delicious, though a little tough. Highly recommend the crab cakes. Their cocktail menu is very interesting.

Their outdoor tent garden is out of this world for ambiance. Book reservations on a night without rain, and sit outside before winter comes and changes the game.

My husband and I enjoyed a yummy dinner at the bar. Julie and Shelby were friendly and helpful, as usual. Food was excellent. Could have gone just for the Lemon Berry Mascarpone cake. Peggy has built an awesome team that always delivers. Thanks Bullfinches!

My favorite place to go. First time I was a little disappointed with my meal. I ordered the swordfish special for $40.00 and it was underwhelming. A little bland But I will go back.
