We got seated and didn’t have a server for 10 minutes. Then she came over and didn’t even say her name and just said let me get you some waters and ran off. Then it was 25 minutes waiting to put our drink order in. We decided to get up and leave. Poor customer service they weren’t even that busy. It was a Monday night. Will try the little Italy location to see if it’s better.

I thought things would all be fresh but they aren’t. The fries were barely cooked. The lobster Mac and Cheese wasn’t fresh or hot. The waiter barely checked on us and was so slow worth literally everything.

Food took at least an hour! no one checked to see if everything was ok or if we needed anything. I even mentioned it was a birthday celebration. Food was good but service was very disappointing…..gave us the bill and left not wanting to go back again!

The food and beverages also took a very long time to come out. My pasta was only warm as if it had been sitting around. We were offered Parmesan cheese and pepper flakes for our pastas and were given little plastic cups of pre-grated cheese and pepper flakes. I would have ordered a second glass of wine had the waiter checked back with us before we were finished with our meal. Overall we agreed it was not a good experience at all and we will probably not return.

Price was about what you expect in the new higher price for eating out. My steak was quite good and accompanying sides were about average. Our waiter did a good job. My wife’s pizza was only OK. Price for her entree was good. This dining room is open to the street with a cloth awning. If you are sensitive to the cold wear something warm on a cool night. Even though this is only a four star rating it is one of the best places we have eaten at in the East Country of late. In the last couple of years in my opinion food quality in this area has gone down in general. So my recommendation is to give the place a try.

Had ribeye and tried their bruschetta burrata. Beef kind of chewy even cooked medium rare for a ribeye. Price quite expensive same as a high end steak house almost. Not with it IMO.

It started with the hostess giving away the table I reserved even though I was next in line to be seated (I made a reservation for an outdoor table and there was only one available—which she gave to a couple who had been seated and came back asking to be seated outside.) We were then seated inside, which is always very noisy. Our server came over and mumbled his greeting (I assume?) and took our order. We ordered sandwiches from the lunch menu and when they came they were just that—a sandwich on a board. No garnish, no little bit of greens, nothing. My meatball sandwich came on a large ciabatta roll and had 6 tiny meatballs on it—filling maybe half the roll. All this for $16. No thanks, I can do better elsewhere. We won’t be back.

The food is delicious but the past few times the service is less than great....not sure why. I remember when the servers were friendly and engaging....but not so anymore. Maybe I have just been there on not-so-good days. Making me rethink revisiting.

Our server was great overall. The support wait staff was ok. They seemed a little bothered when asked questions about the food. Ordered the figgy cocktail and got a different cocktail. Even when me mentioned that it was the wrong drink the server said it was correct even though it had items in it that were not listed on the menu. Everything we had to eat was great, especially the short rib ravioli and the lava cake for dessert.

Food is focused on locally sourced ingredients with preparations that highlight the freshness of the ingredients. Flatbread is made in an Italian brick oven and is excellent. Pasta dishes were light and fresh with sauces that complimented the fresh veggies without overpowering them. Can’t wait to go back and try more of the menu!

This time it was the occasion of my wife's birthday. As usual, the food was very good, but unfortunately the service was sub-standard, especially for a restaurant at this price-point. They seemed under-staffed and, unfortunately our server seemed very inexperienced.

In the past, sometimes service was less than desirable. Everything about this restaurant is nice. Only problem can be how loud it can be. We asked for table with less noice and were seated under the covered heated patio.

The ambiance was hip but a little too hip (trying a bit hard ). Which made the noise level a bit too much for us. (We are over 50 so take that into consideration). The food was good and the portions generally. I was expecting more choices for food sensitivities but there were a few. The photos of their famous 10 lb Bloody Mary kept us very entertained.

Delicious flatbreads, The mussels were very tasty and cooked properly NOT shrunken and dried up! But I did find that the prices have gotten very high for casual style food restaurant that it is.I have been going there since it first open It's doors and I was surprised to see how expensive the entrées were priced I Understand that restaurant industry is having it's share of problems with their help & products But I feel that the prices just out of line for the style food it is serving.

Very noisy and cold dinning area. Wait Staff was nice and tried to make up for the shortcomings.

Our server was attentive when at the table, but didn't check in often. The calamari and shrimp appetizer was good but most of the calamari wasn't cooked all the way and was a bit stringy. The filet was perfect! It was cooked medium rare as we requested and the sauce was fabulous. The salmon was a bit overdone, but good. The tiramusu was delicious. We would definitely go back again to try other menu options.

We had driven by more than a few times, always noticing the place was full with a line waiting for a seat. It also happened that they were promoting Restaurunt Week, with a specia-priced menu. The atmoshere and decor were fantastic. As no one was at the door, the bar tender greeted us and said we would be seated very soon. Minutes later, a young man happily seated us. Although we were asked if we preferred outdoor or indoor seating, it was 95° outside and they had all their windows and doors open. Where we sat made no difference, and it was a bit warm inside. (I actually saw a thermostat that read 86° by the restrooms.) We ordered the crab cake and fried calamari with shrimp as appetizers. As I noticed with every other table, the head chef personally brought out every dish. Although my bestie initially balked at seeing one rather small crab cake, she was eventually sold on how dense and satisfying it was. The calamari was perfect, with crisp tentacles and succulent rounds. The downside was that there were only three tiny shrimp. We both opted for the filet mignon, broccolini, red mashed potatoes and cabernet reduction wine (a very well seasoned brown gravy). She requested butterflied and extra well done, whereas I requested medium. Both arrived exactly as ordered, mine being juicy and extremely flavorful. The mashed potatoes were lumpy and seasoned to perfection, and were very well complimented with a dip in the reduction wine. The broccolini was the perfect side to the dish. For desert she chose the tiramasu and I the cheesecake. Although she isn't a dessert person, the could not leave the tirmasu alone. She kept repeating how good the entire meal was, and I whole heartedly agreed. My cheesecake was, without question, one of the lightest and enjoyable slice I've ever had. All in all, this was one of the best places we've visited!
