Nice to have a local option that’s so good! Great food (“black & blue” filet and salmon), with generous portions. Attentive service. Cozy place so expect some noise. My only request of management: the list of wines by the glass is limited and expensive!

We went to celebrate a special occasion for a friend and made a reservation There was confetti on the table, a fabulous waitress Eileen, and the best multi berry cobbler we ever had (with a candle). All our entrees were exceptional but the osso bucco was outstanding and a very large portion. I love the option of two portions sizes on many of the entrees. The drinks and wine list are as good as the food. There is just something special about Bullfinch's. I prefer going during the week when it is a bit quieter but it never, never disappoints. Go if you can.

Creative brunch menu with lovely cocktail choices. The bucket of bubbles with fresh juice to make your own mimosas is a clever idea for a large group. We were particularly impressed by Amy, our server, who was friendly and attentive. One of our favorite places for Sunday brunch--loved the outdoor summer seating.

The food and services were excellent. Have been here many times over the last 25 years and the food is always consistently delicious, expertly prepared and presented(sorry I did not take a photo). Wine selection is very good though I had a Mojito-less (virgin mojito) which was perfect! Best waitress ever.

Only complaint was the noise level. I was literally yelling so my friend could hear me. We were able to hear every other conversation in the room. We also came to hear the music, which, though good, was also drowned out. Feeling very sorry for the band.

The brunch was fantastic - we would certainly return for brunch again or to try dinner. We sat at the bar and the atmosphere was very nice! Live music playing in the background.

We had Sunday brunch at Bullfinches. We had a nice table with a window that overlooked their lovely outside seating area. We ate inside at it was hot and humid outside. Our waitress was very personable and took our order. She also brought us water and a small dish of muffins. Then we didn't see her again until after we had finished our meals. Another person brought us our food and he mentioned that we made good choices. From that point on we were on our own. No one ever checked to see if our meals were OK. We both ran out of water half way through our meals and nobody ever checked to see if we needed a refill. Food was good but service was lacking. We will give them another try as the food was good, the live music enjoyable, and it is not fair to judge the service by only one visit. Perhaps our waitress had too many tables.

We love Sunday jazz brunch at Bullfinchs ~ great food, service and music! We always sit right in front of the band so it's a bit louder. There is plenty of seating further back that is a bit quieter. Cheers!

We were thrilled with our first visit to Bullfinchs! We were celebrating our 56th wedding anniversary & were treated to a complimentary desert & special table decorations!
Our server Eileen was absolutely wonderful! She said she has been there for 12 yrs which tells us that the management must be good to their employees! Important to us! We will definitely be back!!!

We had our daughter's bridal shower at Bullfinchs and Peggy was amazing to work with, especially since I was planning it from California. This was our first dinner at the restaurant since that event, and once again, the restaurant did not disappoint. We had our 13 month old grandson with us, so we made a reservation for 5:30pm. Peggy seated us in the "alcove area" which was just perfect. The food was amazing, and the service was fabulous. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We've dined at Bullfinchs several times with friends and family (for dinner and brunch) and have always had a wonderful experience. This time we invited two friends who had never been there. We all enjoyed eating, drinking, and catching up with the Wolverine Jazz Band in the background.

Host was great. He laid out confetti and a special candle as he knew it was a birthday reservation. Elegant dining room with live jazz on the patio. Cocktails were excellent. Food was solid but not outstanding; I ordered my steak medium rare and it came medium well. Service was a little slow but acceptable. They brought out a brownie ice cream dessert with candle unsolicited after our meal - very thoughtful!

Ate on the patio because we wanted to hear the entertainment. Nice night for it. The music was loud,
so we were not able to talk easily. Thankfully the music was good. Service was a bit slow. Food was pretty good.

We were just unfortunate to have a table too close the music and had a very hard time carrying on a discussion. However, the food and service were outstanding.

We were outside. Service was very, very slow. I don't blame the wait staff, but not enough of them. Our meals were excellent. The band was excellent but the venue too small which made it too loud. I saw two people almost fall off the platform and one fall because tables and chairs placed right on the edge. The man seating us warned us. We moved our table to be safer. Pretty ridiculous and unsafe.
