We had a wonderful dining experience at Rats this past weekend. The food was excellent and the ambiance was elegant and romantic. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
The food is very good, just don’t expect a lot of it. The popovers they give you are to die for. Great atmosphere and service it’s just overpriced for what you get.
Very nice experience.
We’ve been to Rats several times and have always had a good experience. But the winter 4-course prix-fixe menu is over the top. Excellent food, interesting menu, creative dishes, beautiful presentation and an unbelievable value for the money. My boyfriend and I cook for a living. So it’s rare for us to have a dining experience that leaves us talking about I for days. But this one did. This was our first time dining in the tavern. Very romantic! I highly recommend Rats.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal tonight.
Everything was delicious.
The ambiance and service were excellent.
It was our first time at rats and we will certainly return
This was my second time at this restaurant, and it was just as amazing as the first. On my first visit, I had the Chef tasting menu with wine pairings and that was amazingly amazing which is why I chose to return for my Husbands birthday dinner. The menu was different with a few pre-fixe options with optional wine pairings and it was equally amazing. Both visits were during winter, so now I can't wait to return in spring. I would highly recommend the RATZ.
Late Valentines Day dinner. A very intimate dining experience. Food and service was excellent (as always), but the quieter off season ambience was something that we will remember.
We were a bit disappointed when we were told it was a pre fixed menu (holiday weekend) but... it was amazing!! Many selections to choose from!! 2apps, entree, dessert and it was all excellent. Drinks (martini and margarita) were delicious. Service was great. Atmosphere is great. Been there several times and we will continue to come back!
Beautiful location, outstanding service, and the food was out of this world. Best place for a date.
Everything was great from the servers to the atmosphere, and the food was great. I was , however, a bit surprised and a bit disappointed that there was only 1 scallop on the second course of the tasting menu, especially with an upcharge...I probably wouldn't have been as let down if it was a larger scallop but it was medium sized ao only really could be eaten in one bite, not much in terms of sharing which my wife and I like to do and were able to with most of the rest of the dishes...
We arrived early, and sat at the bar, where we were frustrated with what seemed to be the bartenders' practiced and unrelenting indifference. The wait staff were pleasant, but our waiter skipped a course, and brought dessert too soon. The winter menu is limited but the food is excellent and a terrific bargain.
The food was excellent and the service could not be better.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Rats. We love the 4-course tasting meal. Our waiter obliged us and added on wine that paired with each course at a very reasonable price. We love the ambiance, the decor, and the building architecture. The food and wine were wonderful. I highly recommend Rats!
Excellent food and atmosphere. A must for those that want great food And drink, this is your spot. Cozy yet not stuffy!
Excellent as always!!
Excellent !!! Had the 4 course winter tasting menu. Simple looking ingredients yet packed with mouth-watering taste. My compliments to the chef!! Donna was very accommodating and willing to give us the tour of the place and gave us helpful hints. Cheryl was great making sure everyone was enjoying their dinner. Jen our waitress was very attentive and helpful. I would definitely go back there. One of my favorite!
I had the duck and it was very tasty but was accompanied be an extremely tough whole onion. I would have appreciated a potato of some sort. Menu is limited. Not many fish options and the scallops were not available.
Below average food for the price. Lobster not cooked to completion and strip steak was supposed to be dry aged but the quality was that of a choice super market steak. For the price it should have been larger and a prime cut.
Service and atmosphere was excellent as always. The place is beautiful. They need to upgrade the quality of the product that they put out. We do not have a problem with the pricing, just need to match it with good quality food.
From the wonderful service to the wonderful food, I always have an amazing meal here. I love the ambience, and the entire experience is fabulous!
I took my wife here for her birthday. We have been to Rats several times and it has only gotten better each time we been there. The food was outstanding. We had a great time at the bar prior to sitting down. Our server was great.
Looking forward to our next meal at Rats.
Loved this restaurant the first time I ate there. The 2nd time was equally fabulous so looking forward to a 3rd, 4th etc. love the location. A gem! The perfect spot for a special evening with friends. Excellent.
Always a knockout meal for us.. the whole food experience and excellent attention
Food was good. Ambience is always good. Service was poor. Not once was the glass of water refilled. Tried to draw attention but the bill was paid and nobody even looked in our direction. Simple things matter. Devil is in the details. Disappointed with the service. Expected it to be better.
The food was beautifully seasoned and each dish complimented the next. Absolutely lovely.
Went for lunch with the family and then Grounds for Sculpture. Wonderful food. Great atmosphere. Always love having lunch at Rats.
Although a bit loud we were a little disappointed in the food, Not bad but we had higher expectations based on past visits. All good not great.
Great atmosphere, good food and good service. Unique entrees and appetizers served with delicious breads.
Wow. This was the best meal I ever had. This place is fantastic. Please don't walk,run there as fast as you can. I will go there again and again and again. The finest dinner we ever had.
Excellent quality food, albeit a bit pricey. Regardless, the portions are normal (not the common large plates to stuff your face with). Ambience is great. Atmosphere is great. Service is great.
Rats is consistently one of our fav places to dine. The food, staff & place are all just fantastic....every time.
It's an absolute GEM!
Been here several occasions, always a hit with new comer friends or family!
It was my first time and it was one of my best date nights. Such a beautiful, romantic place. The staff is so professional and organized. Will return.
Wonderful from beginning to end
I’ve been to rats over 100 times at this point. It is the perfect spot for a first date, 50th anniversary, business lunch, or event. It stands out over anyplace else in driving distance and never disappoints.
took my Wife for her birthday. Was an excellent meal! Good limited menu. Excellent execution and service.
Awesome!!! Nice romantic evening with my wife. The wait staff is Great, especially Peter!
We are never disappointed at RATS! Before dinner we enjoyed a cocktail in the bar, where the waitress could not have been friendlier or more helpful. In the dining room our waiter was equally pleasant and the service was excellent. The squash salad was wonderful and my duck breast was cooked to perfection. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his monk fish. Of course one of the highlights is always the popovers served with dinner.
menu not very inspired. other than the hummus which is always good, the rest needs improvement in scope, variety and preparation as it is mediocre at best. Husband's croque madame was tasteless and cold as were the fries. Someone forgot the sauce. My seafood salad was lacking in seafood and had a very acidic dressing which did not seem compatible with the seafood. I did not eat it. The wild boar was replaced with beef whose description did not match the reality of the presentation. Those were the highlights. It was not a full house so the inattention to detail unforgivable. Our server was very good, however. Doubtful we will return for dining. The food should match the venue.
