                                                Food was wonderful! The steak was so tender however the potatoes were extremely salty. Food was 4/5. Service was 3/5. The waiter forgot our drinks at the bar and it took forever for some of the drinks we ordered to be delivered.

                                                I was looking for a nice place to share birthday dinner with a good friend and decided to come here. It has been several years since I have eaten here. Tonight we were not disappointed. Our server Rachel was very patient as we were so busy catching up we hadn’t looked at the menu. We both ended up having the seafood risotto, and it was wonderful! We had a great meal and will definitely plan another visit soon.

                                                Best calamari and tiramisu in town. I just have a few suggestions to make the experience even better. Bring back the Brussels sprouts, use sustainable fish and add side dishes (contorni) to the menu. I’d love to see more local purveyors of meat, poultry and vegetables on the menu.

                                                Great food and great service as usual. Our server Rachel was pleasant and efficient in spite of a her serving a large group with children next to us needing lots of attention. I usually have the salad wedge but tried the Caesar salad for a change and loved it.

                                                Lockkeepers is always fantastic. But last night was even better than usual. Our server was Jackie. We dine there often, but never had the privilege of having her as our server. She was always available, and incredibly knowledgeable about everything. We weren’t sure about our wine choice, but she went above and beyond to talk about options, make recommendations, and bring us samples. Outstanding employee! If I could give 10 stars, I would.

                                                LockKeepers is one of our go-to restaurants, but last evening's experience was not up to their normal standards. The waitress kept interrupting our conversations. And, my husband's chicken scallopini was thicker and drier that usual.

                                                In the past, LockKeepers was a top notch "5 star" restaurant that one could always count on experiencing exquisite food that tasted exceptional. However, something changed - perhaps a different chef? Trying an experimental menu? Whatever it is, they should reconsider and go back to what they were before! Service is excellent. Salads are excellent. One of the dishes ordered was way too salty and was redone. The salmon was great. The lasagna was good but sauce was just okay. Better to not comment on the other dishes. Please rethink your strategy and go back to what you were before. Don't know why you changed what you were doing.

                                                Ricolette was probably one of the best servers I have had in years. OUTSTANDING service, perfectly cooked food, great ambiance, will come back again. One of the few places I have went where they just get everything right, and you're just in awe of how good everything is. 10 out of 10

                                                We love the "Grand and Classy" atmosphere at LockKeepers. The food and service is excellent. Our waitress, Jackie, couldn't have been any nicer or better! We'll be back!

                                                There were 5 of us for dinner on a Sat evening. We were greeted by multiple people and immediately taken to our reserved table. We told our server we had to watch our timing because we were headed to the theater downtown afterwards. Our waitress was polite, knowledgeable and understanding of our timeframe. Our food came out quickly and it was delicious. Three of us had the lemon chicken dish which was so moist - we all loved it. We will be returning very soon! Thanks for always providing delicious food.

                                                Food I would rate very good, though one meal (out of 4) was sub-par. Service was exceptional. A late lunch which allowed for some extra time to catch up with old friends.

                                                We had an amazing anniversary dinner at Lockkeepers this weekend. I had been there before but my husband had not. We were both very impressed with the level of service (including the special extra touches for our anniversary) and the food was outstanding. The only complaint was that our table was very small. It made it hard to navigate the plates and glasses. Other than that, wonderful experience. We'll be back.

                                                Normally a treat to visit, this experience fell flat. We sat in the bar and immediately noticed the 1970’s music. We both ordered the rib eye with a couple special requests. Waited while they recooked a steak so the wait was long. Received the steaks without the special requests honored (no salsa verde). Steaks were overly fatty and undercooked. I know this is not a steakhouse but for $58 I expected a much better steak. Disappointed to say the least.

                                                Fish special was poor. It was dried out; no accompanying sauce and placed on top of a tasteless rice dish. Server was good but clearly had too many table assignments.
