    We have been to the Mayflower numerous times, even since the changeover to Auberge. This time, it was not as good as previous experiences. Not sure why, but the service was uneven and fairly inattentive. The menu is limited and expensive and the food was average for everyone at the table. Oysters were warm, chicken was too salty, burger was not great. Oh well--too bad because we love the ambience so much.

    I made our reservation for lunch at the Tap Room for our party of three. We were told upon our "on time" arrival that lunch would no longer be served but we could be served in the Garden Room. The menu had just been changed since I made our reservation and we all found it difficult to find something appealing on the new menu. One person in our party was not served what she ordered and yet we were charged for their mistake. Finally, I noted on our reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion; a birthday. Although the waiter asked who's birthday it was, he simply said Happy Birthday and that was the end of that. At over $140.00 plus tip for 3 people at lunch, I was disappointed to say the least. The inn was beautiful, but I would not recommend this place for dining.

    Service was outstanding. Our server was Mendrine (?)- best service we have ever had at the Mayflower. She was refreshingly casual and friendly and went out of her way to ensure everything was great for us. Food was very good and we didnt have a long wait which we've experienced here in the past. Suggestion would be to change your menu to be a bit more casual so you dont stuff all the guests into the pub because everyone wants the more casual menu that is offered there. Also, instead of wood burning fires right outside the pub/patio area, change it out to gas fired tables. The smell of wood burning permeates everything and while it may appear "charming" its really not when you go home smelling like a campfire. Keep the wood fires to farther away from the restaurant.

    We were inside in the garden room, and there were flies at our table. All through our meal we were batting them away from the bread basket and our meals. It was very disappointing. The food was good, service was good, but the flies took away from the overall experience. We were there to celebrate a birthday, and I would have thought that after mentioning the flies to the server, that at least dessert would have been on the house.

    Hardly anyone in the restaurant, so we expected the service to be a bit better. We weren’t staying at the Inn, so that might have been the reason our service was poor. Additionally, pretty pricey - $30 for a just average lunch portion Caesar salad with chicken. The grounds are gorgeous, which made our trip worth while.
