    I enjoyed my evening. Outdoor seating was perfect despite it being very windy. The live band was a nice surprise. Was a bit loud to have a conversation, but overall great night. Will dine there again.

    First time there was more then we expected. Nice outdoor & indoor atmosphere coupled with excellent service & good food. Prices are comparable to restaurants in the area with selections for every taste. Will return but will Uber as parking is limited both in lot and surrounding streets.

    Beautiful before you even get inside. Instagram worthy! Even inside. Star Cross drink was amazing! Haylcyon Tacos(Fish) was delicious! Parmesan truffle fries were awesome! Lobster Mac & cheese was good until there were a shell in my bite. That is why this restaurant is getting a 4 star from me. Also Salmon was a bit off as well. Overall I would definitely come back here to try Sushi and another meal.

    We arrived at 5 pm for our 5 pm reservation. As we entered we told the hostess we wanted to sit at the bar. She said first come, first serve. Sit anywhere. We proceeded to sit at the bar when the bar tender said I’m sorry those seats are reserved. I proceeded to the hostess and confirmed that you cannot reserve a seat at the bar and she said yes. You can’t. I replied why then did the bartender tell me I can’t sit there? She looked confused. With that a rude manager comes over and states “some people can reserve at the bar” - a policy that isn’t a policy. First come first serve? We left and went to Egan and Sons . After the meal we walked by again and I took a photo. The seats we were denied were still empty. I have a before and after photo with time stamps to prove it. Horrible treatment. Will never go here again.

    The restaurant was really nice, but I was disappointed to get the worst table in the house. The staff knew it was our anniversary and while I didn't expect special treatment, thought they might have given us a slightly better table. Service was a bit slow overall, but the food was delicious.

    We’ve been to Halcyon many times before, but this was the last time. My husband and I both ordered the black cod. Both dishes came riddled with bones. My husband actually choked on some as he had no idea there would be bones in a cod filet. When we showed the waiter, he said he would tell the chef, but offered absolutely no apology. They brought us new food fairly quickly, but again, no apology or even acknowledgement of the problem. The bill came - nothing comped or reduced for the trouble. And to top it off, when we got home, my husband still felt like he had fish bones in his throat and had to go to the ER! For a seafood restaurant, serving fish like that - without any warning that this was a “bones-in” dish (it’s not supposed to be) or a simple apology after it happened - is unforgivable. Go elsewhere!!!

    Great food, great atmosphere, seated us right away, hostess even sat us at booth when she was originally going to seat us at table. The food was fresh & delicious. My daughter ordered tge kiddie pasta dish & it was amazing. Can’t beat freshly made noodles, I guess that’s why it took a lil longer to come out. Not disappointed when it did.

    My chorizo omelette was very good. My wife's eggs benedict was salty and not as great. My bellini was good, not great. Great atmosphere, very good service. I like this place very much but the food was a little off for my wife. Maybe due to Mother's Day rush.... Would definitely go back though.

    Absolutely amazing food, everything tasted so good and was so flavorful. Scallops were cooked to perfection, only ‘slight’ disappointment was the “colossal” crab cake which was not very big at all, but otherwise a perfect dinner. Bonus point for the great live jazz band, and service which was perfect!!
