My wife and I went there for our anniversary. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar for an hour before our reservation. We were seated overlooking the bar room on the 2nd level, which we thought was pretty cool. Light piano music played in the bar room made it more romantic. Food and service were great. I definitely recommend the crab cakes.

Didn’t know they have live music on Wednesday and my elderly dad has trouble hearing and speaking loudly, but they were very accommodating and put us in a quiet corner of the restaurant. Food and service was very good.

The service was really great. Not hurried each course was timed perfectly. The food was really great. We had a wonderful time. We would like to try another dining room next time. We were in the main dining room and that was good. Some of the other dining areas looked interesting also. The music was fun perfect sound into the dining room. Look forward to returning soon.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on October 29, 2017

Overall we had a nice time and the food was good. One thing I would not recommend this place for is children. We went for a family brunch for my fathers birthday based on reviews and a friends recommendation. The space is lovely. Our server was not very attentive and took a while to greet us and really didn't check in very often. Front of house staff was very nice. Back to the children: there is no real kids menu for brunch. When we asked the server said all they had were chicken fingers, hot dog and one other standard kids menu item. Really?! You can't do pancakes or french toast? So be it. There was a fancy waffle which one our kids had and the other chicken fingers. I just wanted to post this for anyone looking to bring kids under 10.

Our meal was delicious from start to finish. Appetizers included onion soup (authentically made), crab cocktail (generous serving) and pate toast. Entrees were prepared perfectly and the service was attentive without being overbearing. Highly recommend it. Atmosphere is touch dressier but attire can be more casual.

College friends gathered for annual get together. Excellent food (crab patties were awesome). Our waitress was very good (and busy, too). Had to wait quite awhile for our bill. (Table next to use was cleared after our table and they got their bill quite a bit before we did.)

A group of 5 of us ate here for lunch one day while my husband and I were visiting from out of town. My husband and I enjoyed it so much that the two of us came back for dinner that night. The restaurant has a charming wine cellar with a couple of tables for seating, so we requested seating down there. We enjoyed a very cozy dinner for two with great food and excellent service in an ambient setting.

We were celebrating our 42nd anniversary and visiting from out of state. Greenfield was recommended by our B&B hosts . Excellent choice.
Quiet, we ate outside. Great food. Service a little slow. But she was training & we didn’t have a babysitter on the clock so we enjoyed the undisturbed time with each other.

Our server must have been having an off day: she missed soup ordered by one person in our party, forgot our coffee, and we were not offered coffee again until much later in the meal. She was apologetic, and ultimately things turned out to be okay.

We were there for Sunday brunch. I had an excellent omelette, but made with so much oil that it detracted a bit. I prefer a 'dry' omelette. I should have asked. My wife had eggs and crab over English muffin. they were yummy but the provided turkey bacon strips were extremely spicy, black pepper and some red flakes. We didn't eat that, and you might want to order different bacon.

Super service, both speed and quality.
