We found the menu very diverse with lots of options . We had 6 people who each ordered different selections. Some ordered the daily specials which they found excellent. Our waiter Cory was great. We will definitely return.

Restaurant X is our go to for a wonderful meal. This time was no different. We took my Dad to visit because we wanted to introduce him to the restaurant. He had the lamb shank and I had the lamb special. My husband had the mixed grill. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was personable and attentive. Home run all around!

Reservation for 4 at 6:30pm. Food not served till 7:40pm.
Only one in kitchen and one server. I ordered roasted pepper which was not roasted and came in a pool of oil and water. By that time too hungry to complain but will never go back. No concept of customer service the waitress never came to our table to explain in the end we managed to attract her attention but she was not very sympathetic saying well we only have one in the kitchen....not our problem really but in the end it became our problem! There was only a party of 6 adults with kids and us so not too busy. They brought us hummus and pitta bread to the table to apologize but none of us like hummus so that was a waste of effort.

The pictures on open table make this look like a swanky white table cloth joint. Not so. More of a dive gastropub vibe.

Restaurant X is our favorite local place for a wonderful meal. At our last visit Friday night a week ago, my husband had the Fruti di Mare special. He's been raving about it for a week. The portion was very generous and hot off the stove. The flavor was deliciously savory and the seafood was perfectly cooked. One of the best things about Restaurant X are the specials. They're always inventive and delicious. We'll be back again soon!

This restaurant was okay. The food as good but not great. Service was terrible. Only 3 tables with customers and we waited 20 minutes after being seated to get water and our orders taken. We waited another 25 minutes for our food. Beef brisket was Good but not outstanding, fish and chips.... the fish was soggy.

So we initially had an overcharge experience while dining here which the owner has resolved for us. The food was delish although there were only 2 servers for a full patio & they seemed a little frazzled but we will definitely give the restaurant another try.

We heard great things about this place from others, but our experience wasn’t good at all. It was Mother’s Day brunch and I as you know I made reservation and they were for 2 pm. We sat down about 1:40 we didn’t get our meals until 2:50. The food was just OK. The whole meal was 105 dollars, but it wasn’t worth it at all. I will never go back there again.

Great little restaurant with lots of charm

The chef made me a special batch of risotto that didn’t have mushrooms in it and it was amazing.

The desert options were awesome and the French vanilla filled Dutch pancake was devoured in record time by us.

The staff was nice and the service was good. The salads my friends had were decent and they seemed to like them ok. The wine was good. The dinners were not disappointing. The pecan crusted chicken was smothered in crust and sauce with a dollop of watery potatoes. The mahi was good in flavor, but overwhelmed by the onions and tomatoes on top, as well as the pool of juices over the whole plate. Sad to say, it was bit over price for the experience.

Birthday brunch so I didn't have to cook! The food was excellent. I had the Eggs Benedict. They were done with a maple flavored ham that was delicious. My husband had the Breakfast X platter and loved it.

We love RestaurantX. Friday night's dinner was lamb shanks that were falling off the bone tender on a bed of mashed potatoes with green beans and carrots. With a glass of red and chocolate mousse it was a perfect end to the week.

This lovely bistro was a fun place to have brunch( the meal we ate there). The food was fresh and delicious.
The menu was eclectic and offered some different brunch items. We met the owner who was very welcoming and worked alongside his staff. We will definitely look forward to going back.
