    A hit, and a miss. I've heard about this place for awhile and we were eager to try it out. To start, we ordered the chicory salad, and the pork belly dish. The pork belly is a single, thick piece so fair to know ahead if plans to share, it's not the largest, but the chicory salad was BIG! Both of these wow'd us. In the salad they had a not-sour pickle covered in a cheese-type dressing that was absolutely delicious. It has tons of different flavors and crunches, as did the pork belly with greens. For our main courses, we had ordered the lentil pasta, and the fish. The lentil pasta tasted like salty dirt. It was such a disappointment to the amazing appetizers. The fish, my friend did not love, but I thought was fairly good. My replacement dish was the steak which was good. It came with various sauces, and crispy kale. What I loved about their dishes was their ability to have a dish with a combination of flavors - salty, sweet, light & heavy. They all balanced well. For dessert, we both ordered the Sticky Toffee Pudding which left much to be desired. It was an extremely sweet cake, similar to butter cake, topped with a HEAVY caramel syrup that's unnecessary for a cake already so sweet, and topped with a lightly sweetened heavy whipped topping that was heavenly. The cake itself was much too sweet, and they should over more of the cream to help counter it, and skip out on the syrup. It was an interesting experience. Our courses went from AMAZING to good (forgiving the bad lentil) to decent. I'm not mad at the money spent to try something new as there was some good dishes, but also wouldn't return. I also want to include that outside area is extremely cold. They have a heater but because there's no doors/closures on the outside like most places have, you're surrounded by cold air. Everyone was wearing their hat/scarves/coat to eat, which was difficult. It was also extremely busy, and the service staff did their best to keep up with the requests.

    My boyfriend and I ate at Pumpkin for restaurant week and had a great experience! There were some great options for all the courses, including vegetarian ones for me, i really enjoyed the Trumpet Pasta. The value for the amount of food was great, and the portion of food for having 3 courses was perfect. We especially loved the desserts, the Chocolate Torte and the Sticky Toffee pudding, and the coffee served in an individual french press was a unique touch.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Pumpkin BYOB over Restaurant Week. The restaurant is intimate and it can be very loud at times. It is great for a couples night out and/or for a small group of 3 or 4. The food was served hot and had adequate time in between courses.

    We eaten at Pumpkin over the years and always enjoyed it. Since we hadn't been in some time, we took advantage of a 65th birthday as an excuse to have dinner for 8. Everyone in our group was delighted with every dish...call outs were the carrot salad, the swordfish and the oysters...but really everything was delish. The staff were superb, responsive, precise and accommodating...without hovering.

    For such a small and unprepossessing place, Pumpkin BYOB is outstanding. The Sunday tasting menu was very good value--very good, indeed. The combinations on the plate were surprising--and surprisingly delicious. Each component added a flavor, a texture, a color that made the whole truly more than the sum of its parts. Spices I'd never tasted were a delightful discovery. And the service was attentive but not intrusive. This restaurant is a gem.

    Special late dinner for New Year's Eve for the 2 of us. Brought a nice bottle of wine with us and loved being able to scout the special 4-course menu for that evening when we made the reservation. The setting is lovely, service was great, food fantastic, distinctive, and special and with sizable portions. We left feeling very full and satisfied--such a special and exquisite meal--and grateful for the walk home. Pumpkin is a favorite!

    Excellent Prix Fix menu with wonderful selections to choose from. The Quail, while tiny, had excellent flavors and the Butternut Squash soup was very tasty. We also had the pasta which was amazing and the veal flank steak also very good. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Really enjoyed the evening at Pumpkin and will definitely be going back in the future.

    We sat outside at one of the pods. It was a cool night, but the heater (and the wine) made it nice and warm. It was decorated really cute and it was a good vibe. We were really excited to eat here- both of us heard great things, but the food was just okay. I got the bass, the pasta and the toffee cake. The pasta was delicious and by far my favorite dish. The other two were fine, but nothing I’d write home about.

    We sat outdoors and our heater didn’t work well. I was freezing and was in a fur coat. When we moved the heater closer to our direction would be scalding hot. The soup to start was delicious but my steak was overly salted. Order the bread extra but worth it fresh baked. I wish there could have been a salad course before main meal in lieu of dessert. Especially with holidays approaching. The staff went above and beyond which made the experience still enjoyable.
