Not child friendly.
We picked this restaurant to have dinner with family from out of town, specifically hoping for a family friendly atmosphere. We had 4 little children playing in the empty corner, pretty quietly considering their age. They were quickly corrected & asked to be quiet by staff. The restaurant was very quiet, floors squeaky, so you could hear everything throughout the restaurant.
We understand that not everyone likes children & can tolerate noise they make. But the staff was not graceful in speaking to us.
The waiter was short tempered. If we had a minor request, he’d snap at us with «Let me take care of “this” FIRST!”. We felt unwelcome, uncomfortable & wanted to leave.
The food was very good though.
I hope the staff reads it & implements some changes in customer service. Both me & my husband worked in restaurants & we understand that it’s not a walk in the park, but customer service is EVERYTHING, even if the food is not 100%.
Thank you.

I WAS DISAPPOINTED BY THE SERVICE AND FOOD. WE HAD TO WAIT A LONG TIME, 20 MIN. FOR OUR SOUPS AND ANOTHER 20 MIN FOR OUR ENTREES. IT WAS PRIME RIB SPECIAL NIGHT SO IT WAS A GOOD VALUE. THE RIB WAS TASTY BUT A LITTLE TOUGH. MY SON ORDERED A SHRIMP DISH AND WAS DISAPPOINTED TO HAVE SMALL SHRIMP WHEREAS IN THE PAST THEY WERE BIGGER SHRIMP. THE BREAD WAS WARM BUT SEEMED STALE, NOT FRESH. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER WE WILL GO BACK.

I ordered Monk fish. The fish was raw in the middle and I showed the waiter. He said he would bring me a new one. After 10 minutes ,and my husband having his dinner , he brought me the same piece of fish that was just cooked a little more. That was OK however my husband basically ate alone and I hurried to finish to try to have him not wait for me . I feel there should have been some compensation made except a free cup of coffee

I’d go again to see if the service is better on days other than Mother’s Day. I didn’t feel special at all with our waiter. He was rushing and short and not around a lot.
Wine glass was dirty, I had to send wine back.
Staff tried to take our plates while we were still eating.
I think these special days are terrible. I’ll check out the service on a regular day someday after I get the bitter taste out of my mouth.

The food was delicious but expensive although it was Mother's Day. The noise level, however, made it almost impossible to enjoy our companions--conversation was quite difficult as we could not hear each other. The salmon was delicious, the beet salad was fabulous, and the desserts were unbelievable!! YES, we will return to the Century House but probably not on another holiday.

Thank you for choosing to dine with us on Mother's Day. We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your meal so much and appreciate your feedback. We do have a few smaller rooms off the main dining room that lend themselves to a more intimate and quieter dining experience which are usually open to guests during holidays. Please feel welcome to inquire about one of these dining rooms during your next visit. We look forward to seeing you again!

Main dining room was not crowded. Tables were available. Hostess had trouble finding our reservation and behaved as if we didn’t have one. We were led to a small room off the entry. Were the ONLY patrons of the room and yet were given a tiny table in the back corner. We could have stayed at home for all the ambiance we had. Food was ok.

Thank you for your feedback and loyalty throughout the years. We strive to ensure the best possible experience every time you visit. As you were a party of 2, our host seated you in our semi-private room to provide a more intimate setting, however, we are happy to seat you in the main dining room during your next visit if that is your preference. Please just let the host know when making your reservation. We hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, The Century House

We opted to have our Easter dinner at The Century House and it was delicious! The special menu was pre-fixe for us to pick an appetizer, entree and dessert. There was even a vegan option for special dieters. Two at our table ordered that dish and were asked if they were indeed "vegan". Neither are so their ravioli was cheese rather than tofu. We liked that there was an option without meat, yet could be switched out for cheese so the vegetarians at the table were happy.

We were looking forward very much to our Easter experience and, although our previous experience with the buffet was outstanding, this fixed menu approach was not. Food was good, but service was EXTREMELY slow--more than 2 hours for 3 courses. This made the experience uncomfortable with our granddaughter and frankly, far too slow for adults even if the toddler were not present. We will not likely reserve again.

Used a groupon from (4) years ago with no issues. Service was outstanding, food was just as good if not better. Atmosphere was warm and cozy. Loved the fire place too!! Excellent attention and knowledge to gluten allergy with lots of food selections to choose from. I don’t know why we haven’t been here sooner but we will certantly be back often. (2) glasses of wine, salads, entrees (steak and chicken) and desserts was a very reasonable $110 before tip.

In that it was Restaurant Week, the restaurant was very busy, with almost every table taken and a lively bar crowd. The service was still excellent and the choices were diverse and interesting. My husband loved the Osso Buco and I devoured the lobster mac and cheese. The lemon trifle was so light and delicious that I was scraping the glass to get every last morsel. I have never had anything but a great meal at the Century House.
