Overall the service, ambiance, and food was great. Al the food was delicious except for one dish, the rabbit pie, was super salty. Other than that it was great!

Beautiful, quaint place. Came here for dessert and drinks, we sat upstairs. The sticky toffee pudding and the hot toddy were a pair made in heaven. Can’t wait to be back for a full meal.

We love the atmosphere inside at the Dandelion, but this time we sat in one of their outdoor "rooms". Food and service were as good as expected, but the outdoor area didn't give the same ambiance. But the outside areas were definitely comfortable and heated

Very good, speedy and friendly service. A bit dark up on third floor. Burger okay but not warm enough. Fish and chips very tasty. All in all and given the restrictions, a positive experience.

Really enjoyed my experience with my
girlfriend at the Dandelion. The food is
outstanding, the server is excellent and
the ambiance is awesome. Sat on the third floor in comfortable red chairs. If
you are only a steak, burgers, wings and pizza type of person than this place is not for you. If you want an interesting experience, than dine here. I will be back again and again.

Lunch outside on the first warm day in many months was great at Dandelion. The outside menu this spring is much larger than the one in the fall of 2020. The risotto that I had and the English breakfast my friend had were well prepared and very tasty. Service was excellent. I highly recommend Dandelion.

We enjoyed dining in the heated booths...much more pleasant and private than sitting on the sidewalk! The food was good but I've had better at other Steven Starr restaurants. I highly recommend the cheese board - the pairings were excellent. Our waiter was superb

Horrible. Ate outside in one of the chalets. Heat was less than ideal. Service was terrible, unlike other Starr restaurants. Had to remind the waitress to take drink orders and to bring bread. Entrees were served before we had finished our appetizers. Food was fair, at best. Rabbit pie was gloppy and fairly tasteless, with no sides, and very expensive for what it was. Other entrees were just ok. Would not return for dinner under any circumstances.

While I love the covered eating space outside, it was blowing hot air like a wind tunnel. We were graciously moved to a fully outdoor table, which was chilly. That was the only downside!
