We really enjoyed it! Starry Night is a standout. Expensive but very much worth it for a special night out. The food is outstanding and the staff professional and very skilled.

Do not waste your money here. Very expensive. My duck was not edible. I had to ask for a knife to cut it with. My husband ordered the steak done med.-rare "on the rare side" and it came med to well done. The steak knife that he was given was so dull he could hardly cut his steak. When we told the waitress we were disappointed her reply was, did we want dessert!

Food is overpriced for what it is, portions very small, service mediocre, vibe generally just feels a bit pretentious.

Throughout the years we've been patrons of Starry Night, we've been pleased with our experiences. Especially during the pandemic, S.N. did all they could to help us feel safe, thereby allowing us to feel okay about coming (except from the day after Thanksgiving, 2020 until just mid-March of 2021.
Kudos to April, her cousin, the young man who kept our water refreshed and also brought more ice for our drinks. We will certainly be coming again!!

Starry Night never disappoints! It's been a year since we've dined out (Covid) and this was the very best re-introduction to the restaurant life. Everything was perfect, and we felt very safe with their Covid protocols. Can't wait to go back!

Wonderful spot. The ambiance, service, and food was all well worth it. The prices are definitely a little spendy, and I was very glad to observe they are more generous with portion sizes. The seafood stew broth was delectable and I almost licked my desert plate clean. The service was a bit slow for just two people: just under 2 1/2 hours for a few appetizers, main entrees, and deserts. As pescetarian, I wish they had offered one or two more veggie/fish entree and appetizer options (I see tofu curry, brussel sprouts and salmon entrees on most menus in the area).
However, none of these things detered me from knowing that I'll be dining here again for sure. I'm especially looking forward to coming back here in the warmer months when everything outdoors is green and in bloom. Thank you for an overall excellent experience!

Really a wonderful restaurant. Beautiful indoor space with a slate floor and big fireplace. Good covid management. Lovely staff. We broke a year-long hiatus here and had the most delicious meal and watched a bobcat amble by just past the window. Magic.

Liquid smoke in stew??? Rather have alternative for that creole taste. Pot roast outstanding. Wife got mad when I tried to have more than my half.

We had a lovely dinner on January 20th. We felt totally safe and it was our first night out for dinner since outside eating in summer. The food was excellent as always and we can't thank Starry Night enough for taking the proper precautions and allowing folks to enjoy their wonderful food in a safe setting. Can't wait to return.

This is my second time visiting the restaurant and it did not disappoint! We went with friends who had never been and they loved it too. Cozy environment, friendly service and food is excellent. I would highly recommend you give this place a try if you have not ever been. You will be glad you did!

Overall experience was very good! The waitress was outstanding! The only issues was the lighting was alittle dark and the room a little cold. Value wise the meal was very good, very fancy but I left not feeling satisfied. Maybe it was what I had ordered.
Will definitely eat there again!

In light of the pandemic we were quite surprised that with the restaurant running at 25%, all of the diners were put into one smallish room where at times we were less than 12 feet apart.The room itself was at 100% capacity by the time we left.
