Fathers Day dinner. They seated us in what resembled a function room, which was perfectly fine, but it was very hot in there. The thermostat on the wall read 81 degrees. They told us the air conditioner was on it was not enough. I’m not one to complain but it was very hot and that made the dinner not so enjoyable.

Sat out on the patio and the service and food was fantastic. Blackened swordfish over spinach risotto was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Excellent appetizer selections.
North End quality in Danvers!

Have visited 3 times always enjoy it. I love the steak tips but 2 of us ordered them and they were tough and they were ordered medium so it wasn’t due to overcooked. The waitresses are fabulous, so attentive.

Fantastic service. Checked-in and were sat right away. We ordered the wings and a cesar to share. Also got 2 entrees which were delicious. The complementary limoncello shots were yummy and a great touch! Staff observed COVID protocol.

It was very crowded, decent atmosphere. Love the menu and food was delicious. Our waitress was not good. Took her 1/2 hour to come over and give us water and take our order. She was not friendly or attentive. There was a lovely woman who looked like the owner or manager and who tried to pick up the slack for our waitress, which was appreciated. It could be they were understaffed that night. Either way, I would give the place another chance for sure.

Excellent service, food was delicious, everyone loved their meals. We hadn’t seen one another since August, this was a real treat to see each other in a clean and friendly environment. Highly recommended. Three of us had pizza, one had chicken Marsala and one person had shrimp, broccoli, ziti. We’ll be back!

The food was great and at a very fair price. Social distancing moved some diners into a newer open space with a fireplace. The owner told us they're working on getting it decorated with historic pieces and photos. We are looking forward to going back!

Meatball appetizer was great!
Chicken Marsala was great!
I also got thin mint martini based on another review that recommended it. It was not on the drink menu but they made it anyway and that was also great. All the people in my party of four were happy with the dinner service and food. Owner or manager came by to periodically check to make sure we were happy. That was also nice.

Very disappointed with the service and treatment by the hostess. We were told as soon as we stepped in the door you have 90 minutes - two tables near the bar were there before us and were there when we left.... service was just ok We will not be back anytime soon.
