New Year’s Day
Always a good meal, decorations for the holidays very pretty ;service very good
We made reservations for dinner on New Years Eve. When we did so, we made sure to include the fact that we would be having a person in a wheelchair in our party. When we arrived the hostess decided to sit us all the way back in the dining area. In order to get to the table we had to navigate the entire dining area and even then it required that at least three other parties had to get up in he middle of their meals and move their chairs so we could pass. Our server was fine the rest of the staff not so much.
I have frequented this place many times, maybe due to a busy Sat night but....just less than optimal.
We requested to be seated not at back of restaurant as there are "cold spots" however exactly where we were seated.
Meal: swordfish special, was very thin (almost like they filleted it), never seen anything like it and i have it all the time. Tasted very good but presentation not so good. My friend's bearnaise sauce came cold for her steak.
Restaurant was quite noisy and servers kept dropping things right near us (trays, utensils, etc) was just very noticeable.
They did call me to confirm reservation and to say they could accommodate a later time requested but we decided to keep current one.
Classic New England Tavern, fire on the hearth, warm friendly courteous staff, attention to patrons needs, relaxing atmosphere and attitude, excellent menu, a step above for lunch with friends or a special dinner.
Scarlet Oak Tavern is a fine restaurant with a lively bar at one end. They seem to be especially good with meat dishes (steaks, chops). This is one of our go-to places.
Annual holiday dinner with my wife.
Food was good. Service was fine. My daughter and I were asked to move our seats half way through our meal, though. Literally, as our main dish was coming out, we were asked to switch tables. No compensation was offered...also weird. I did tell the manager when we were leaving and he had no idea and offered us a gift certificate (which we didn’t take) but it was still weird. We would go back though; give it another chance.
the service was good as well as the food! my company from Maine commented on the service and the variety of the menu also the friendliness of the waitress.
Dinner out with friends. Server Stacey was perfect.
