    Very good experience. Unique setting with the building type. Was a little chilly where we were sitting, believe it used to be a sunroom area when it was a house. Food was great. Drink was amazing. Food came out pretty fast as well.

    April and the staff were excellent and attentive and committed to exceeding expectations… one look at the Bloody Mary bar or Mimosa Flight offered with Sunday Bruch will stifle any doubts whatsoever. You can’t go wrong

    The Paddock Place has inherited a handsome, charming space for a relatively quiet evening dinner. The quality of food is an area for focus in bringing the restaurant up to the standard of many other local establishments. My salmon. was overcooked; the vegetable and house salad accompaniments were excellent. And the service was just right!

    Wonderful venue for a double-date night with friends. Beautiful, quiet, with great food and beverage selections. I am a vegan and found a great dish. On-site parking is also a big “plus”. Will come back soon.

    Took 7 family members for brunch. Beautiful old place. Seated immediately. Decent menu selection and staff was pleasant. Problem was once we ordered. Very long gaps between when we saw our waiter. Food took extremely long to come out. Like 45 min after we ordered! No explanation, no apologies. Place was only about 25% full so not due to being busy. Once it came food was fine. Likely won’t be back

    Our server was delightful. Three of the four dinners were great. Presentation of the special was messy — too much food on a small plate and drowning in blue cheese sauce. Looked unappetizing.

    It was a birthday for my friend. Food was very good as always. One thing that was very distracting was our table didn’t sit level so it was constantly wobbling back and forth. They were short staffed so the service was a bit slower than usual but not bad. It would have been nice to have something on the table or on the menu about the history of this site and building.

    It was noisy. The only complaint I have is we waited over an hour for our food after putting in the order. We were told an event party showed up with double the attendance. That was the issue. Our service women was excellent.

    We had a double date with my sister and her husband just to hang out (it’s been awhile!) and it was a great experience. I think we’ve all been there before it became Paddock Place but it was great visiting the new restaurant. I believe our waiter was Thomas and he was especially amazing friendly and funny and that really added to the experience. Also the food was fabulous so that was nice as well! We are glad we braved the weather for it!

    We had brunch for the first time on Sunday at Paddock Place and all four of us were VERY impressed. The food was so, so good. We had the regular benedict, crab cake benedict and two other dishes and everything was fabulous. The Paddock Place itself has a cozy environment, so on a a chilly fall day, it was the perfect place for a comforting brunch!

    We have been to Paddock Place in the past and expected a great experience. The food value was only fair and seemed worse because of poor service. Reservations were not necessary because the diners were very sparse. I hope it was just an off night for them because the venue is pleasant.

    We were celebrating my birthday, and our waiter Thomas was very attentive. In addition, he brought us an additional brownie sundae when the first one was wrong. My only suggestion would be to offer additional vegetarian/vegan options.

    The place is gorgeous and is full of rich history. Unfortunately we waited 1.5 hours to get our food and 25 minutes to put in our drink order when we first sat down. I do NOT blame the staff as we could tell our waitress (one of 3 that day) was very stressed.

    The food was unimpressive. Our waiter was inattentive. The building itself was once a grand home for someone. It is no longer pristine. I just wasn't very impressed. Two drinks for $24 is a little steep. The Creme Brule was excellent. Just go for the Brule and have coffee.
