    Wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning/ afternoon, any time of year. The food and cocktails are delicious! The blood orange mimosa is fabulous and goes great with a piece of orange cake. Service is friendly, laid back and fast. We love the whole team and operation at ICO.

    Started with a mix of three different kinds of oysters - phenomenal! Went on to an appetizer of cauliflower- flat/bland and had no taste. Clams Vongole were acceptable. Hanger steak while cooked to perfection was ruined by the amount of salt seemingly drenched in. The burger, too, was too salty to eat. One bite and we were done. The server and drinks were good. If I ever return, it will not be for the food but only for the oysters.

    Dinner was delicious! We started with a dozen Oysters, Tumblecans were our favorite. We then had the Clams Vongole and the Monk Fish and Mussles, both were delicious. The service and ambiance was excellent.

    We had a wonderful evening at Winsor House. We had the local oysters, clams and I had the locally sourced tuna, cooked to perfection. My husband had the fish and chips and it was also very good. The staff was welcoming and attentive. A very nice place!

    Fantastic brunch. The eggs Benedict with crab meat was delicious. The bloody Maria’s also great and not too spicy, just right! Our server was attentive and kind. He also brought my friend an espresso tequila for her birthday with a candle. We enjoyed it very much!

    This is my favorite spot. My son and I frequent Winsor House for brunch and look forward to each time we go. We have our favorites on the menu, the staff is always warm, knowledgeable, and kind. On this recent visit, I took two of my girlfriends for brunch and it was so fun, relaxing, and delicious! We'll be back soon because we love you Winsor House!

    Way too much money for almost zero selection (valentine's day), this might be the lowest value meal I have ever had. Service was OK but not particularly pleasant and our table wobbled (server knew but forgot).

    We used to come here about once a week and then we got tired of the menu. Returned tonight and wasn’t impressed. The food was overpriced and lacked flavor. Could not believe they tack on 8% to the check “service charge ”. Just pay the workers what they’re worth and we’ll pay for our meal! We won’t be returning mainly because the food was not worth the price and there are so many other great restaurants that know how to make great food!

    Menu somewhat limited, a little nervous at first when perusing it, but everything we ate was absolutely delicious + fabulous presentation. Service was excellent- our server was knowledgeable, nice, present without being overbearing. It was a Sat night (6:30 reservation), and place was full of a surprising number of small kids, a lot of big, noisy group tables, so I’d go a bit later, if you’re looking for a quieter vibe, but ambience was really cozy and lovely, fires in the fireplaces, etc. A bit pricey (esp wine menu), but again, felt worth it—great seafood. The oysters, omg! So good.

    There were six of us adults for Sunday brunch at 10:30 AM. We were seated at the large round table in the front, which was like our private dining room. Perfect since we hadn’t seen each other in a long time! Our server, Jill was extremely accommodating, especially when someone Turned over their bloody Mary, oops. We had several trays of oysters, various other menu, offerings, traditional, as well as a little different. Everything was presented beautifully. We had a great time.
