This is a great place, and we have been there many times, and love it every time. I would caution against ordering any spirits from the bar. They are a tad overpriced in my opinion. 2 glasses of Oban 14 (2 oz pours) were $56! Despite that, the food is fantastic and the prices are very good for your portions. This is a wonderful place for brunch.

Food was delicious. The environment was calm and nicely decorated in keeping with the historic nature of the hotel. The servers were pleasant, but, unfortunately, incredibly slow. Cocktail offerings were pitiful, which was highly disappointing since libations from The Library were unavailable (Our prior experience at the Library was a big influence in choosing to brunch here, & for us crafted cocktails are major part of the brunch experience).

While making reservations, a question was, “are you celebrating anything?” I answered our anniversary but thinking that this will not go any further than this questionnaire. Well, after we had our main course meal, our waiter surprisingly brought us two specialty drinks accompanied by a wonderful dessert with a lit candle to top it off! The dinner was exactly what I thought it would be plus more!

The food was good, but we expected good service at your restaurant since it is considered upsale. There were only 3 of us for a birthday dinner and our server had several tables in both rooms and one was a large group. We went most of the night without our glasses being filled. When the check finally came so we could leave it was $20.00 more than it should have been with whisky added, which we didn't drink. I would suggest at a minimum other people could fill water glasses. I had to ask the hostess to get our waiter to get service. I will not come back because I do not enjoy being treated that way at an expensive restaurant. If you want to be a upscale restaurant please hire enough servers to make your guests feel special.

Thought it would be fun to celebrate our 30th anniversary at the Sanford House 506 during restaurant week. The meal and the server were fine but we were seated at a small table along the wall in the North dining room. This same room had one very large & far too loud party in the middle of the room. The other 2 couples that were also in same dining room at their small tables probably felt the same; no one wanted to hear all the intimate details of this large party's assorted tales. And what really topped it off was one the dinner guests in this group pulled out her cell phone & watched a video at a volume that had to rise above the increasing vocals of this group. I thought I could have been at a fast-food spot frequented by rowdy teens or post-game sports bar & had the same experience. I understand dividing the number of patrons between the 2 servers in the 2 dining rooms but I think if we ever return to try the 506 again & are seated next to another large party we will walk. The experience is ruined when you cannot enjoy your surroundings and only the conversation of your dinner guest.

Service excellent, food well prepared ($$) But when they put a party of 10 in the middle of the room, all ambiance was lost along with any hope of hearing the wait staff, dining companions or even one’s own thoughts.

If you are looking for an intimate restaurant to have dinner this is the place. Cute tables snuggled up in a window cove, beautiful courtyard with seating, in an unexpected place in the city. The food is delicious and well put together. Nice little wine list that doesn't disappoint.

Our server was nice and helpful, but it took a minute to be waited on. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a college group of "kids", who were drinking, a bit loud and cussing. We were expecting a quiet, enjoyable brunch, so that was disappointing. I'm 52 and my mother is almost 80. Maybe think about how you're seating people by age? However, the food was fabulous! We had brunch so we would like to try lunch during the week sometime, and perhaps it won't be as crowded too as we came on Saturday. Thanks

Very accommodating for changes we asked for to our brunch. Food was very good as usual. We always go for lunch or brunch. Prices almost double for dinner. Just another benefit for us being retired that we can go earlier in the day. One of the best things is the awesome service. Familiar faces are a very nice plus!

While it used to be one of our favorites for brunch, since they brought on the new chef a few weeks back, which we were notified of after we were seated we've come to realize we may not be going back. The food was good, but lacked the flavor and presentation it did in the past. There were changes to the menu as well. and not necessarily for the better.
