    Came from Florida to celebrate an anniversary , as noted in our reservation at the wauwinet where we were engaged 9 yers hence. Never any mention of that as we noted throughout the experience. Menu was depleted (did not know it was closing soon), changed (no brunch menu as told earlier when we called to verify to verify) sat outside as placed even though rain and strong wind, cold etc.. was present. Not given an option? Prices to the moon and a service profile high was far from the gold standard expected. Disappointed completely with experience never mind very high fares. Hey guys- you can do much better than this for the prices you demand? Very disappointed.

    We were celebrating our 30th anniversary. Toppers checked all the boxes for a special occasion - great service, great atmosphere, great ambience and great food. Service was attentive but not intrusive. My husband and I both had the halibut and it was outstanding. Artichoke and sweet potato appetizers were also excellent. We ordered the flourless chocolate cake and apple galette...and they were great. My husband is gluten free and didn't have a problem finding something to eat. As I read Trip Advisor reviews, I felt like some folks were surprised by pricing. So here's my public service - - - on 10/2/23, appetizers were $35 PP, entrees $75 PP, and dessert $25 PP (regardless of what item you ordered). Food was worth it.

    This is a special occasion restaurant which is an exceptional venue for celebrating. The food is perfectly prepared and presented. The timing of each course is perfect and the service impeccable. The expense while substantial is well worth it but one should be aware of it before scheduling a visit. Everything is perfect.

    My wife and I had dinner at Toppers last night. It was an elevated dining experience. The 20 minute drive from downtown Nantucket to Toppers was picturesque. The setting (the inn and restaurant) was quite nice. We began with a drink from the bar. The bartender was quite pleasant, attentive and quite knowledgeable regarding various bourbons. My and I carried our cocktails out to the back lawn where we sat near the water. It was a beautiful view. The dining room was nice and we were seated in the corner. The service was amazing. The food was even more amazing. We both had the 3 course fixed prix menu. My wife had a very fresh and imaginative first course of cucumber with chili peanut sauce. My first course was king crab with squid ink pasta. It was interesting and delicious. My wife had the halibut as her main entree. It was very moist, very fresh and very tasty. The artichokes and carrots that accompanied the halibut made the dish. I had the lobster. It was quite good. We both had the white chocolate mousse with cherries and almond ice cream dessert. It was exceptional. The service was absolutely perfect - very attentive without being smothering. The total cost of our dinner for 2 approached $500. Given what we have paid recently on Nantucket, we did not think the cost was exorbitant. The Concierge at our hotel told us that Toppers is the best restaurant in Massachusetts. After having eaten there, we see why.

    My husband and I looked forward to celebrating our anniversary at Toppers however we did not enjoy our dining experience. We were completely ignored the entire night. It took a very long time for anyone to come over and take our order and no one ever checked in while we were eating. The food was good, but could have been hotter and it was certainly not worth the price. We will be dining elsewhere when we return to Nantucket in the future.

    Restaurant is definitely overpriced. Service is good. Food is ok, nothing really special (I’m still wondering where did the “Five Diamond” come from). Sunset is the best part of the experience, everything else is a bit boring. In terms of gastronomy, there are better options in downtown Nantucket.

    We enjoyed Brunch at Toppers. The Brioche donuts were amazing, as well as the Tarte Flambe. That is a personal favorite! The Goat Cheese Omelets were also fantastic. 10/10 recommend for anyone looking for a quiet brunch with break taking views. Our server Nicolus was also fantastic, wouldn't have expected anything less from Toppers.

    This is a very special restaurant from the amazing location, to the ambience of the dining room, the incredible service, and the excellent food. We had the vegetarian and non-vegetarian tasting menus and enjoyed all the dishes over the course of nearly 3 hours. We also took leftovers home, after our server graciously offering that.

    Beautiful atmosphere and very good food! Great variety of options on the menu. The service in daytime vs the service at dinner are very different experiences and sometimes lacking during the day for basic things. Water glasses never refilled for example. The restaurant is rated 5 diamond but the day staff just rides that reputation rather than living up to it.
