    Fondue was served to table cold. Bread for fondue was all crust. Meatballs were premade/ frozen and prosciutto wrapped chicken was dry and seemed old. Not freshly cooked. Our dessert was served melted. Service was great, but the food was too be desired. Salmon was great. Very small portions.

    It was very loud and very short staffed , only 2 people! One meal sauce was so salty I had to put the meat on a separate plate . The waiter did nothing to remedy the situation except say I’m sorry. The other meal the meat was rare instead of medium as requested. The restaurant was so understaffed sending food back didn’t seem like we’d get any satisfaction. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT!!!!

    Second time visit as troublesome as first. Service good, food good, noise level bad. When dining room not open music from bar so loud that there is no opportunity for conversation. Despite asking for quiet table both visits were at table where noise level disturbing for persons wearing hearing aids. Will not be back unless quiet table request is honored.

    We had a wonderful server who was very attentive and kind. Unfortunately I did not ask him name but he is from France so perhaps you can identify him. A lovely evening for our family to share a post- high school graduation celebration. We will definitely visit again!

    Our food was excellent. We went on a Friday night and they have live music, which we weren't expecting. It was a little loud for us at first, but we got used to it. The service was also excellent. We were celebrating our anniversary and they put a little sign on our table and everyone wished us a happy anniversary. We had a good time and a great meal.

    Most Amazing Mother’s Day Meal. It was the Best Lobster, Scallops, and Supreme Broccolini Ever and the owner is phenomenal ❣️ The ambience is 10 out of 10 but the food was 12 out of 10. Just AMAZING❣️❣️❣️ I should mention that they gave every mother a FRESH Red Rose and the Dessert of their choice. I got the Chocolate Fondue with Fresh Assorted with Pound Cake as a Mother’s Day Gift from the restaurant…looks AMAZING❣️We fell in love with the owner and he blessed me with 3 Red Roses instead of 1. What an amazing day with at this phenomenal Restaurant 🌹🌹🌹

    Service and food were wonderful! The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because we went there on a Sunday because of an e-mail Friar Tuck’s sent informing us of a new special where kids eat free Sunday through Thursday but we were charged for the kids meals anyways. We usually spend over $200 when my wife and I go, and we will continue to go when we can find a sitter for our boys. We were just a little disappointed and probably will choose a more family friendly location when we have our kids. That being said, Friar Tuck’s is a great place for a date night. Great food and wonderful staff.
