    Prices don’t reflect the quality of the meals except for the meatloaf. Odd policy of separate checks that we have never experienced in all of our travels.

    This place is very mismanaged, and for the price that is a huge deal. We were there a good 29 minutes before anyone even got our drink order. Then they brought out the wrong food, and when they did get our food it was incorrect and over cooked. Again, these things can normally be over looked but for a $500 meal for 4 people, that is unacceptable! The manager never came out to apologize for all the mess our experience was and when we asked to speak to her she was rude and unbelievably sarcastic! This place is a 2 star restaurant with 5 star prices. Best to find another place!!

    The food was fine but the prices were really outrageous for what it was. The service also was fine but for 400 for a party of 6 I expected something over the top.

    Food was very expensive. I had a beet salad that had small pieces of yellow and red beets surrounding a pile of arugula. No nuts, no goat or feta cheese. $27. When we got the bill for our party of two, a 22% gratuity had been already added! Then did this become a thing?! I won’t go back to this restaurant.

    The food was delicious. The ambience was pleasant. And the service was amazing. Lilette was caring, helpful, and on top of our situation. When a food choice we selected was not available, she apologized and took the time to explain the reasons why. We felt pampered and our needs and desires adequately addressed.

    Was looking forward to a birthday dinner at this restaurant. I ordered the mahi-mahi it was overcooked. There was absolutely no presentation on the plate. It was mediocre for the price of the meal. My husband ordered the meatloaf. It was a little bit bland. It was my birthday And the restaurant still charged $15 for a slice of cheesecake. Disappointed, the restaurant was not busy and the server only came back very few times to check on us.

    Good: our server and the Caesar salad. Bad: Everything else. Besides wildly expensive steaks ($55 for smallest) they charge for any sauce and charge $12 for any sides. My husbands salmon was way overcooked and the potatoes had obviously been sitting out for a while. I don’t understand why a restaurant who charges this much doesn’t do a better job of properly preparing dishes. It’s not that hard. We had a much better dinner at Oscar’s for half the price (at least).

    We spent New Year’s Eve at the Switchback! Ben and Matthew took wonderful care of us! Scallops, meatloaf, shrimp and Ahi Tuna were exceptional! We also started with the bread plate. I had a cup of their house made New England chowder! Yummy! The ambience and view were stunning!

    Party of 4 for my birthday and one of the specials was a large bone in ribeye for $120 which i ordered to split with one of the other guests. After our appetizers the waiter came over and said there had been a mistake and the kitchen had put a large porterhouse on the grill instead of the ribeye and would we be ok with that. Reluctantly we agreed and i failed to ask about any price difference so that is my fault. However when the meals were served we actually received a T-bone and while it was a large T-bone and it had a good taste, it was a tuff piece of meat,. At the end of our meal one of my guests gave the waiter her credit card and he brought back the charge slip never mentioning anything about an adjustment on the bill. After she closed the folio for the tab i asked her if they had done any adjustments to the bill for the error and there was a $20 credit on the bill. I guess the waiter overheard our conversation and came over to state that he had given us a $20 credit on the bill and was that enough? To be honest i was in shock and then told him about the three different steaks from the original special description to the error description to what actually came out. He did offer to give an additional credit but did not mention an amount but at this point in time they had already run the credit card charge and my guest had already signed the receipt. So we ended up being charged $100 for a 16oz T-bone. I feel like this was a bait and switch and i just want others too be aware that this happened to us. The crab cakes, calamari and sorbet for dessert were good but the highest single item on our bill was a steak we didn’t order. :-(

    Our order: N.E. Clam chowder, Crab cakes, Berry Salad would order again. Not order again: Three Sauce & Bread, Sourdough was not ‘sour’, more like country French and the Chocolate Banana bread pudding. We had a window table and the view was spectacular at sunset, WOW! And the low chatter/noise only made the dinner more enjoyable. This is due to it being fall season with low tourist traffic,

    Truely a culinary delight! Started with a Salad and had the Salmon, cooked to perfection. My Husband tried the New York Strip, it was delicious. Our waitress Amber took really good care of us. Never had to ask for anything. She made sure we were taken care of. It was very nice to have met Chef Matt and try his culinary skills. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
