I had been wanting to try this place for years and finally did it! The setting was lovely, the food was amazing and our server, Ashley, was super friendly and took the time to answer our questions. It is not cheap, but one of the finest meals I have had in a long time.

Great food and service. Very accommodating. I do think the the serving and greeting staff should wear masks. I was told that they are all vaccinated which helps.

We feel so lucky every time we get to eat at Starry Night. Great service, food, ambience. Every dish sets a high bar for flavor and quality. And we are wishing we saved more room for dessert which is always a delight.

My husband's scallops were superb. I had the steak which was done the way I like it. It was, however, a little salty. I loved the veggies, but would have liked more.

Wow, the food and the service were amazing. Shout out to the mixologist for the best cocktails we have ever had. The service was delightfully attentive and unobtrusive. This was a wonderful place for a special occasion. (Vegetarians should check the menu in advance as there are few options.)

“We met our grandson and his partner for dinner and were disappointed in the food which we’ve enjoyed in the past. Taking into account the difficulties running a restaurant these days , Starry Night would be wise to simplify its menu. The dishes were overly complicated- too many ingredients- as well as being a long time in coming. Wouldn’t it be better to dial back? A nit to pick: we were in a large dining room with two other tables which made for a sad ambience. And in the middle of the room was one table fully set with a white table cloth? Hunh? It didn’t feel as though the food or room had been given much thought.

The food is AMAZING! ... menu is limited but good variety ... the focaccia appetizer was crispy and delicious ... I had salmon and my lady had strip steak, and both were outstanding, the beef tender and tasteful and the fish flaky with a slightly spicy glaze ... wine list was great as well ... a bit pricey but worth every penny!!

So my husband and I were celebrating our 35th anniversary and we were given a table right by the entrance of the screened in porch. I requested the porch. I thought perhaps a table away from the entrance of wait staff coming and going was not what I had planned and asked if we could be placed at a different open table. We were denied. The table we requested was unoccupied for one hour. We loved the food, our waitress was very attentive however this reservation was made a week prior. I would recommend that attention should be managed when special events are celebrated.

We had a delightful waitress and we were seated in the fireplace room which is lovely in cold weather and also on the early fall evening. Disappointment appeared when no rolls or bread was served after getting our good bottle of wine. This area has the most wonderful small bread bakeries and a surprise not to enjoy some of it at this restaurant. However, the entree of the salmon was flavorful, the pork outstanding, and two of us ordered two appetizers each to sample rather than ordering an entree. The steak tartare was delicious as was one of the salads, but the calamari was as tough as old shoe leather.

This is such a special place! The menu is creative, seasonal & delicious. The ambiance is lovely inside or out on the patio. The servers are not rushed, know the menu, and are very charming. They really think of everything including heaters for cold evenings outdoors. You must try this Lovely Cafe.

We love the atmosphere and have supported the restaurant since it opened. But now it feels a bit tired - regretfully food is not nearly as good as in the past. Very few choices for those not inclined to big slabs of meat or fish. Salads are not flavorful. Starters not varied enough.
Hope SNC can rebuild to old glories

Lovely setting for an early evening supper after a long day driving.
A warm welcome and superb service; only quibble is that the menu, especially considering the price, is a little narrow - a tough ask to pay $30.00+ for limited choices which don't look just right.
I solved it all by going for two starters plus a salad, all of which were delicious, as was my wife's entree.
Very glad we went, and it won't be twenty years before we return.
Thanks SN

After nearly a year from having visited Starry previously, we were certainly not disappointed! It's a special spot with great menu and wine selections. Lots of new staff members from when we were there previously, but all were gracious, and provided excellent service throughout the evening. One of our favorite "go to" places when we're in our home turf in Addison county for the summer months. So happy to see the place continuing to thrive!
