Wedding anniversary. You cannot beat the ambiance of this restaurant whether you’re inside or out. It is just charming. A very limited menu, but everything was delicious. Highly recommend the chocolate cremeaux!
Amazing food, clean, safe and great way to celebrate !
The seating was outdoors due to the Covid situation but that was actually fine because the outdoor views of the pond, gardens and sculptures are fantastic. The entire staff was very prompt and courteous and our waiter (Mayner? I think) was very friendly. It was our 3rd time there and we go there mainly for the food. The menu was shorter (again, because of the partial opening) but all of the food we had was delicious. This is a very unique experience and I highly recommend it.
Outside seating by the pond doesn’t work with too many bugs and lack of proper lighting or table candles
Food is mediocre at best limited menu love the place hence would really hope they up their game soon
We ordered fish steak and charcuterie all very much just ok very expensive for what quality of ingredients and flavors that was presented
Need more flavors and innovative food components
I had the chicken my husband had the bronzino .
Chicken was hard to get off the bone.
Both were overcooked
Potato’s were good
It was a beautiful anniversary celebration... enjoyed it .. a lot !! Definitely coming back !! Thank you !
Great care and safety measures for COVID. Felt very comfortable and the service was on point. Was a bit disappointed with the food however. It did not stand up to the usual Rats benchmark.
Love the new menu with all of the Gluten Free options. Food was delicious, we had the Salmon and the Branzino, service was excellent, and there were no issues with social distancing. Very happy that we were able to return to Rats!
Outstanding! Just a bit disappointed in wine. Ordered Riesling and they must have switched brands. It tasted more like a pinot, very dry.
Sitting outside for dining would not really be my first choice but rather in a cool place where I could enjoy my dinner and not feeling clammy or sticky because of the humidity. However, given the circumstances of the pandemic, I thought it would be a great idea, why not? Fortunately the weather cooperated-there was a slight breeze, not humid and the place was shady from the tree and had there own canopy as well and had a perfect atmosphere for dining. Selection of food however was limited. Main Entree only had hanger steak, chicken and vegetable. No fish! I had ordered hanger steak-2 small portions w/ wedged potatoes. My friend had no choice but to order the chicken. The dishes looked simple and was not wowed about it. By the way, if you want to order seafood-which will only last for another 4 wks-- seafood in a pot-you would have to order it in advance which I was not aware of. Overall, the dining experience was nice. They did a good job w/ social distancing. Looking forward to returning someday.
I always love dinning here! It is a beautiful place for outdoor dinning, excellent attention to safety during COVID-19.
We were so much looking forward to a dinner out and we invited friends who had never been there. We were very disappointed in several aspects f this experience. The menu is extremely limited to a low end steak, chicken ($28!) , an Indian vegetarian option and Branzino. We ordered two sides of vegetables and no one could eat them - Brussels sprouts and maybe cauliflower? too mushy and overloaded with sauce and extra ingredients.
We especially were disappointed in the desserts. Three of the four were not executed properly and were just fair. We all thought that maybe the main chef or pastry chef wasn't there.
On our way home we apologized to our friends for a fair meal at a high price.
It was such a great out door dining experience during COVID19. You don't have to worry about other customers, the tables are all 6 feet apart. Nice view looking toward the pound. The staffs were all super professional and safety measures were all in place. Food and drink were fabulous despite the fact that it's only limited items. It's like a dream that we are able to eat at a restaurant again after 3 months.
It was so fabulous. This was my boyfriend’s first time here and loved it. He wants to come back again.
Absolutely wonderful evening...as always! The Covid-19 precautions were handled with grace and in many ways it was the best experience we have ever had while at Rats. We will return!
They've only been reopened 4 days & it was a relaxing holiday weekend dinner on the patio with pond & plants to look at while dining. Service was attentive & we had a sweet waitress. Food was delicious & fresh. We ordered the crab cake & cheese plate for apps, Branzino & lobster bake entrees with creme brulee for dessert. The watermelon cucumber fresca was a delicious refreshing drink but the alcoholic drink wasn't very good so hubby sent it back for wine instead.
Thank you for your great service!
The view is amazing!
Order steak and it cane out cold very surprised one hot day
felt like a vacation .... beautiful, great service, wonderful food
Great food and atmosphere we love eating here on many occasions
It was a wonderful place to celebrate my birthday!
First night out since March! Delicious and very pleasant meal on the patio.
The food is delicious. I look forward to getting the Clam Bake every year!
The atmosphere is peaceful and breathtaking.
The service is outstanding!
Was a Joy to be back at Rat's.. While I missed the full menu the Service , the Ambiance and the meal were very good.
Had a wonderful experience outside on the patio.
I was so happy to see them reopen. The ambiance and dinner selections were outstanding. Really liked their new menu.
Can’t wait to return.
This was mine and my husbands first experience at Rat’s and we were beyond happy with the overall encounter! Our view was stunning and the food was amazing! A huge shout out to our waiter Peter for taking such great care of us! We will definitely be returning!
We went to rat‘s restaurant five years ago and this was our first time back. Both times in honor of my wife’s birthday. They are still adjusting to coronavirus world and I believe They just opened up the patio to dining. It is an unrivaled spot and a very beautiful restaurant. their attention to detail and service was impeccable. A wonderful time. And we brought our 3 kids. Can’t wait to go back. Only issue is the 80 minute drive. We will be back!!!
With outdoor only, they created a beautiful dining experience
As far a outdoor dining in a beautiful setting, you won’t find better than Rats. The current menu is very limited but everything we ordered was locally sourced, fresh, and flavorful. The tables were spaced more than six feet apart and social distancing was taken very seriously.
We have not been to a restaurant since March, 2020. The outdoor dining at Rat’s was beautiful. Staring at Monet’s bridge and water lilies in the pond was gorgeous. We truly felt like we were in Giverny. Our waiter was so happy to be back and very attentive to us. Our dinner was wonderful! We look forward to going back even though we are an hour away.
Food was amazing and the service was great. Would highly recommend!!
Thank you! Out first time eating out and since pandemic started felt safe. Always excellent!
Amazing date choice me and my wife loved it going again soon.
We enjoyed lovely early dinner Friday night. Gr8 food wonderful service & magnificent ambience.
Great ambience and service. Would recommend for sure
We’ve eaten at Rats many times. Always enjoy the food and ambiance but I have to say dining outside tonight made me feel like I was in a romantic exotic vacation spot! Amazing ambiance!
We felt they did a really good job with social distancing on their first night open since the lockdown and the new, limited menu was truly excellent. It was so great to be back. And it even rained during our meal but we were well protected under the canopy
Excellent food and service in beautiful setting!!
Service and food was excellent.
