    The problem is they can't hire enough waiters. They had 2 servers handling the entire restaurant. Took 15 minutes to be greeted at table, then 15 minutes for drink order to arrive, 45 minutes for appetizers that came out wrong, then food came out 5 minutes after appetizers. We weren't prepared to be there for several hours. Server wasn't particularly helpful or apologetic for the delay. It's not her fault, but still would have helped. Normally the food and experience is fantastic. I would still recommend the place hoping for a turnaround. My past several experiences were great there.

    We had a great night at Scarborough Fair. Our seat was nice and quiet and private with a small partition that made a big difference and the food was delicious! We had the lamb chop and also the short ribs and both were spectacular! There were multiple items on the menu that you were interested in. And lastly being gluten free it was the perfect place to dine as they had multiple gf options listed on the menu!

    We enjoyed our appetizers and entrees. The one thing we were disappointed about was that we did not get a special table in one of those private dining areas. When I made the reservation, I noted that it would be our first time coming here and we were celebrating our 19th anniversary. I guess you have to request one of these special tables which would have made everything else that much better. I guess we will have to give it another try at some point.

    First time dining here. Positives: Ambiance Food Service Negatives: There was a large very loud table near us. Multiple couples asked to be moved. It put a downer on our family dinner. Our table was wobbly and the waitress said she would fix it but forgot. She was new so we didn’t ask again. I asked for a Cosmopolitan and apparently the bartender didn’t know how to make it. Barely any vodka. I will still try going again but won’t sit in the main dining room near any loud tables. I feel the people around that noisy table should have gotten free drinks or a discount. It was really only two women at the table and others in the party looked frustrated with her as well. Also I will probably just order wine.

    Restaurant is lovely however we were seated next to a large party of 9 ppl who were very loud and the acoustics are not ideal. We asked our waitress, Corinne, if we could be seated outside to enjoy a bottle of wine after dinner and she was able to accommodate us which made the evening enjoyable.

    Great, Classic restaurant. Kind of a throwback to a time when going out to dinner with your parents was something special and kind of a big deal. I had the scallops and my wife had the Halibut which was very graciously changed in preparation from how it was described on the menu. Corrine was our server and she was polite, engaging, funny and attentive. We all looked up the origins of "Hair of the Dog".

    It was such a great experience . I saw the sunday bar menu and knew I needed a greek burger . My husband enjoyed clams with brussel sprouts and a coconut veggie soup . The bartenders made my old fashion slightly on the light side just to the right taste. Would highly recommend and we will be returning . Happy Hour seems our speed .

    We absolutely love this restaurant! This was our second visit and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The staff is friendly and helpful. The building is beautiful inside and out. The food was on the pricey side but that was expected. I had the halibut, and my girlfriend had the short rib. Both dishes were phenomenal. Can’t wait to come back
