They were perfect on every front. Even accommodating making a plant based meal that wasn’t on the menu. Just totally superb !!!

Disappointed. Appetizers were outstanding (oysters and soft shell crab). Both main courses were disappointing. Lamb was just ordinary and the duck was not tender. My banana/chocolate sundae was also nothing special. The small pieces of brownies were hard and too choowy.
We were looking forward to a special dinner, unfortunately only parts of it were “special”.

Always one of the best and most consistent places for fine dining in the extended area. They make very good cocktails as well. My only minor complaint might be the pricing of the prefix menu, seems to be much too high when compared to prices on the alacart menu, meaningfully so. Needless to say, I don’t order it despite the fact that it did look delicious. Regards. Ned.

Unfortunately, there are no "rules" around being loud and obnoxious. We had to move after 15 minutes because the table behind us were rude and loud, and no one (the restaurant) felt they should say anything to them. Our meal was average. My wife ordered what was described as a 1 1/4 lb lobster, but was just one small claw and a tail. What we refer to in Nova Scotia as a canner, less than 0.75 lbs. The wine was fine and the service was good.

Food was decent, regretfully did not opt for the tasting menu (which looked fantastic). Service was very attentive. Ambiance left a lot to be desired: bar area was extremely crowded, dining area was loud. I won't blame a restaurant for the quality of its patrons, suffice to say driving a Maserati doesn't mean you have class.

It was an outstanding dining experience, once again. From the soup, a well-balanced spinach and broccoli puree, to the Griggstown chicken, everything was done to my perfection. As always, the wine list offered a wonderful pairing of wines with the food.

Lunch is very good here. Has interesting choices and good cocktails; try the "plucky". Tuna Tartar is amazing and the Gyro perfectly seasoned. Brisket and rigatoni was also very good.

We had a lovely experience dining here for my wife's 50th birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu and the wine pairing took the guess work out of selecting. Our server J described each wine with enthusiasm and each one was as he said. We appreciated the chocolate birthday plate to cap off a perfect evening. We will certainly return.

Dinner options are excellent. Choose from the Tasting Menu or A La Carte. Wine list is impressive with the top 200 offering reasonable priced selection. Octopus and sea bass was perfectly cooked. Cinnamon and apple dessert to die for. Service was great.

Very enjoyable and relaxing dinner, excellently prepared and professionally served. A true American classic dining experience you don’t find much anymore. It’s expensive but you get what you pay for: excellent ingredients skillfully prepared with a lovely atmosphere to truly enjoy your dining experience. Come to relax and enjoy the “ride” at your leisure.

I took someone very special to dinner the day after Valentine's Day to enjoy a more peaceful, charming evening together. We enjoyed the ambiance of this quaint, charming restaurant. The service from the minute we stepped into the Inn until we left was superb; friendly, helpful but not overbearing. The food was prepared, presented & served at high standard.
We were first presented with a complimentary amuse-bouche that was creative & delicious. I ordered the raw oysters, a ragu fazzoletti & the NY strip steak. All were delicious!
Most of the restaurants I go to leave me wanting, or just plain forgetful. We left that evening with smiles on our faces, full bellies & a promise to return soon.
