OpenTable Diner (New England)
2.0
Dined on January 6, 2018

Restaurant is fair. Decent food, overpriced for what you get. Staff is unprofessional. The restaurant clearly doesn’t get enough traffic as the wine cabinet is noticeably not full. The bread that was brought was probably warm at some point, but was not by the time it hit the table. We then had the Chopped Salad. Nothing to write home about. It was over-dressed and too much bacon was used. That was followed up by the Chicken Sandwich. Chicken was good, but the “house baked role” was just a sesame hamburger bun. The heaping pile of French fries and dollop of ketchup were significantly mismatched. The best part of the meal was the beverage. Bottled Allagash White for me ($8 - a little pricey in that I can buy a 6-pack for $11), and an overpriced $12 glass of Cab for my girlfriend. All in all, we probably won’t be back.

This was our second NYE at City Table. We all love it. Reservation promptly honored. Great menu plus a special NYE menu if you wish. As busy as it was we never felt rushed. Great drink menu. Server was very pleasant. I think that City Table will continue to be our NYE choice.

After reading reviews through multiple sources, I was hoping for something better. The service was great, but the food and drinks were “meh”. Tried brunch on the first morning of our stay. The other person in the party really enjoyed their biscuits and gravy. My duck hash had no flavor.
Our second attempt was at dinner the following night. We ordered the oysters - they weren’t good. Not bad...but certainly not anything to write home about. We had oysters down the street the night before and they were great. Anyway, my dinner was terrible. This time my guest agreed. “Mediocrity at its best” was their description.
Service was great, but when the food is bad - what’s the point?!

The city table burger was nice, but a tad bland.

Loved our waitress. Food was good overall. Giving 4 stars since we got the Shrimp and pork belly, which was good, but 3 tiny shrimp. Too small to be tasty. Otherwise, crab and avocado app and steak frites were hits!

Reliable upscale always top notch food and service, ESpecially good for people over 40 because it has a lively vibe but not so much that it is a screaming match to hear your dinner companions

Awesome menu and outstanding service. There was plenty to choose from to satisfy a small appetite and the folks that wanted a full meal. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing and very patient with a group of 60 year old women who hadn’t seen each other in several years.
