Lunch was amazing! I got the turkey sandwich and salad and it was so fresh and satisfying! We also got the crispy sandwich and it was very flavorful. Great ambiance - highly recommend!

This was our 2nd visit to Somerset and it was just as good as the first time. The service was friendly and efficient, the appetizers were excellent and the main course was nicely prepared and tasted great. I just wish the room was a little quieter. Perhaps next time we'll request the upstairs seating.

Beautiful place and space! Definitely dress up. Non-casual attire suggested. Moderately priced along with friendly staff. Will be dining here again.

I went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and it was perfect. They even placed his name on the menu wishing him a happy birthday along with a cake. Overall a wonderful experience with delicious food.

Another outstanding lunch at Somerset. Delicious chicken and rice soup and a wonderful kale and brussel sprouts salad. And a shout-out for their bread, which is delicious. And a scrumptious trifle to finish the meal. It was a wonderful birthday meal!

Food and service was above average. Ambiance is excellent (really cool bar). Value wasn’t great, especially on the drinks ($15 for a very subpar Bloody Mary). But overall I would recommend and go back.

Food was mediocre at best - overpriced for the quality. Will not return. Great space and wine list.

Somerset started off by making us wait for 20m for our confirmed reservation. Drinks were tasty while waiting. Once seated, we reviewed the limited menu but decided on a good course of action. Appetizer and Pasta courses arrived promptly. Odd that multiple people would come to our table but take only "some" things away that we were done with. Delay to entree course and then our server sort of went missing. More folks visited the table, again clearing only some things at a time. Long delay to dessert course and also long to place that order. No offer of coffee whatsoever. Just sort of odd pacing and things that you'd assume would happen didn't. Things typically offered weren't. Rhythm just seemed off, but food was good overall.

Sat us by doors and it was zero and the draft made the entire dinner uncomfortable! Additionally food was good but not worth the cost...
