    Not recommended. We finally left after an hour and forty minutes without seeing food other than first courses which were lukewarm, under seasoned and underwhelming. They have suits walking around schmoozing their favorites but not paying attention and reacting to real service issues in the rest of the room. When we got up to leave, I stopped at the host stand to ask for a check for what little they did bring us — now, of course, here comes the suit apologizing and telling me she will contact me so we can come back and give them another chance. Days have now passed and we have heard nothing. We have now left the area and can only urge others to avoid this situation.

    Our recent visit to Stars, despite its fine dining reputation, left much to be desired. Although the food was decent, it didn't quite live up to the exceptional standard one would expect from such a high-end establishment. While enjoyable, it lacked the innovative flair and outstanding quality that would justify the steep price tag. Furthermore, the demeanor and professionalism of our server were disappointing. Their overly relaxed posture and casual behavior, such as resting a knee on a chair, detracted from the sophisticated ambiance we had anticipated. In fine dining settings, attentive and polished service is paramount in enhancing the overall experience. Additionally, external factors marred the restaurant's ambiance, notably the intrusion of guests from an adjacent meeting room. Their casual attire and disruptive movement through the dining area disrupted the refined atmosphere expected of a fine dining establishment. Overall, while our experience wasn't disastrous, it fell short of our expectations considering the hefty price we paid. We had hoped for a more seamless and refined dining experience. It's evident that there's room for improvement in both the service and ambiance aspects of Stars to truly justify its premium pricing.

    Loved our meal here! Four of us were celebrating my sister’s 40th birthday. We started with the burrata and the duck fat rolls - so good! The scallops were delicious, served with risotto. For dessert we had the cheesecake and the s’mores - both were fantastic! The view is breathtaking. Very memorable experience!

At the end of the evening they sent the rest of our wine & our dessert back to our room for us to finish it in the comfort of our bathrobes.... A truely amazing night!

    Beautiful setting and great waiter. Food was barely warm and pretty much tasteless. Scallops looked as though they were plated the day before and warmed in the oven. Way overpriced for the product. Disappointing.

Every single member of the staff was genuinely kind— from the host that greeted us warmly, our server who was excellent and kind and friendly, to the valet who told me to take all the time I needed while buckling my toddler into the car seat. The food, drinks, and wine were all thoughtful and heady and beautiful, as well as the beautiful decor and holiday decor. Really spectacular

    It was just so so…the inn is situated in such a beautiful setting, however Stars was kind of cavernous and stark, lacking warmth and holiday cheer. On the bright side, our waiter was sweet and attentive. And my dinner companions, celebrating a big birthday with me were the best part of the evening !

    A special evening with an interesting menu of what appeared to be classics presented in a new and delicious manner. Lobster bisque was poured over a seafood sausage made from Scallops, salmon, and monkfish, along with little tarragon pastries. Duck with coriander, parsnips and pommes dauphine was excellent. A dessert of smores was described as a Jackson Pollock deconstructed smores, and it was scrumptious and beautiful!

    Exceptional dining experience! We have a tradition of a “fancy” dinner Thanksgiving weekend to kick off the holiday season. After a disappointing experience at Wequasset last year, we were thrilled to see Chatham Bars Inn was allowing reservations for non guests again this year and booked as soon as we could! The lobby was so festive, a perfect backdrop to get into the Christmas spirit and the gingerbread Chatham village with Chatham Bars inn was so special. Now to the dining review! Service was impeccable! Our needs were anticipated and met before we had the chance to ask for anything! The wine list was extensive and we were even able to get a bottle of our favorite hard to find Sea Smoke Pinot Noir! The food was amazing and all 4 of us left already planning our next meal at Stars! Thank you Chatham Bars Inn for creating a new tradition for us, we can’t wait to come back!

    My husband and I were celebrating our 53rd anniversary. When we arrived for dinner we were told that the restaurant was closed for an outside function. We were not notified ahead of time by the restaurant and received a confirmation e-mail the day before by Open Table. The restaurant management arranged in room dining without charged but the evening was ruined for us.

    Waiter, Jon, was friendly & knowledgeable. Food was creative & delicious. Atmosphere was a bit strange given there were only 4 other tables being used, the room is exceptionally large, there was no music… it just felt a bit odd. (Note: this visit was in mid-October.
