The food is wonderful and the ambiance very romantic. I love going there. For the price though, I wish they wouldn't make noise to close the place down until we actually left. It was a Wednesday night, and few people were there, so I suspected they wanted to go home. I'll still go back though. I love, love this place.

Things were okay…one person was bartender and server who was very nice but cheese board was unimpressive.
Plastic cups for butter just tacky.
Normally very nice place and I’m sure it will be back to its normal standards once we are past Covid.
But, $500 for dinner for 4 with current offering not really cool.

If you don’t want to have to yell over the noise, come to Sanford House. Our family had a wonderful time around a table for 6. We could hear each other speak without hollering at each other. The atmosphere was wonderful and waitresses were attentive. I would highly recommend this as a place to go.

The experience of the restaurant is why we visited. It’s a cute old house turned into a bed and breakfast. The chairs need to be cleaned. Everything is very old. On purpose. But is very poorly upkeep in this restaurant. The food is presented nicely. But the taste of the food, is not seasoned at all. The quality of meats is below average. I love the idea of the establishment. It just needs fine tuning.

My wife and I were first time diners. The facilities were beautifully appointed for the holidays. Brunch was perfectly prepared, delicious, hot. Coffee excellent, after meal cocktails perfect. Dessert was scrumptious. The highlight of the visit was Demetrius, our waiter. He couldn't have been more attentive, helpful and courteous. An awesome representative of the staff. We chatted a bit. Besides being a great waiter, he presented himself as a wonderful young man. Answered the expected questions of first-time visitors politely. Checked on us often but was not intrusive. Offered recommendations when I asked him for selection advice. He was simply a pleasure and in addition to the Sandford House being a return destination... I would return just because of his demeanor. Additionally, upon our departure, the lady at the entrance gave us a parting Happy New Year farewell. She noticed that I was looking for a photo opportunity and without me asking, she was very gracious in offering to take our picture. We walked the grounds and made the decision to invite other family to join us on a return visit in the near future.

We had dinner on the patio. The decorations and view of the gardens provided a lovely backdrop for relaxed dining. Our server provided excellent service while still allowing us space to have a romantic dinner. My husband had the Chilean sea bass and I had steak Diane. The food was cooked perfectly as ordered. We both enjoyed our meal and hope to return again soon!

I’ve enjoyed restaurant 506 twice. Didn’t know it even existed until friends told me, “you need to try this place”! Glad we did. Anthony , who runs the bar, is about the best I’ve ever known. Drinks were excellent, well made and generous. Don’t miss this one; it is excellent.

This is a small restaurant where the tables are fairly close together, so the noise level can be a problem. Christmas decorations are really pretty. The service is pretty good and very friendly. The strong point is the food which is very good and consistent. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

I ordered the steak which was $50.00, and it was warm at best. The mashed potatoes the same way. For $210.00 for me and my wife I expect a hot meal. Probably will not go back.
