Cutest little place ever!! Customer service was absolutely amazing from all staff. Great for a solo evening, group or date. The food was great as well. The dessert was to die for (toffee pudding) but the starter salad (baby gem caesar) and the main course (tandoori chicken) was also good!

The hamburger was medium and not medium rare like a requested. Beyond that it was nothing special. Perhaps because they weren't busy service was SLOW. I like the place and would still recommend it - assuming this experience was an abberation

We had a delightful brunch at Dandelion. We loved both the bubbles and squeak and the eggs benedict. The bubbles and squeak was not at all what we expected, I wasn't sure how steak sauce and eggs sounded, but was very glad I went out on a limb and tried it! It will likely be my new "regular". Our brunch cocktails were fantastic as well. The service was great and the restaurant was very clean. We will definitely be back!

We had a belated anniversary dinner at the Dandelion and had a wonderful evening. Our server, Chris, made very helpful suggestions and provided excellent service. The food was delicious and the drinks were superb. Our only (minimal) complaint was that we were seated upstairs and it was a bit warm; however, it was an extremely hot day and I don't know that anywhere else we could have gone would have been much different. It did not affect our experience, nor were we disappointed in any way. We will definitely keep it on our list of places to return!

Make a reservation! We saw multiple people leave due to a 2 hour wait.
Also don’t be in a rush, everything happens very slowly in terms of being waited on. Everything was delicious.

Such cute ambiance, tasty food & nice staff! As a NY’er who dines out a lot, it was wonderful to stumble upon this gem. Really unique & will happily recommend to friends. Chips (fries) were exceptional.

It was tough deciding on an entree as they all sounded really good. My party shared multiple staters which were all delicious and finished up with a lamb shepherds pie that had a terrific gravy. They had a great selection of bottled beers and ciders. Finishing it all off with a pot of tea was perfect.

Food was great. However our tables was small and directly across from hostess stand. Felt like an after thought and that we were eating in what would normally be a waiting area. Table was small and awkward, couldn’t even fit our legs underneath. We are both 6ft or more so made for a very uncomfortable meal.
