Great place! We have wanted to try it for years and finally had the chance to. Did not get to stay for the music - we'll do that next time!

Initially, they tried to seat us at the worst table, next to the kitchen and waiting take out orders. After moving to a better table, we ordered drinks and fried zucchini strips. The zucchini strips were undercooked and the outer bread crumbs were burnt. Our shared salad consisted of a few pieces of lettuce, many halved black olives and cherry tomatoes. There may have been a tiny bit of feta also. My rack of lamb, ordered medium rare, arrived raw. Back to the kitchen for more cooking. They returned properly cooked, but were tasteless. The mashed potatoes were good. Our bill arrived with an unordered $28.00 dessert on it. It was remedied.

We went to celebrate the 2 week anniversary of our wedding and they pulled out all stops to make us feel special. Just an amazing evening with amazing food and a friendly waitress

The dining room is very nice, but most people are seated outside behind the building in a former parking lot. Premium pricing for a subpar experience being seated out back. The food and service were ok, but the inside ambiance would have made up for it. I’d only return if we were able to sit inside.

Spent $800 on a birthday dinner and so many things went wrong. We waited almost an hour to get our food, and then it was cold! Dishes came out at different times (some people had not gotten their appetizer when mains were arriving). Mandatory 20% tip for parties of 6 or more and for horrible service and food issues, I would never do that. Will not be back. Used to be one of my favorites.

Love Quiet Woman and have been coming for years. Food really good and service is very good. The only downside is the noise inside. Once it’s full, the crowd is pretty boisterous and it gets hard to hear,

I told the Hostess this was my 47 wedding anniversary dinner. No one bothered to recognize it? Not impressed ! we had a 5:00 PM reservation ! Another couple With no reservations came after us! They were seated before us! I was underwhelmed to say the least!
Regrets,
A very disappointed customer😕

The only issue we had was the band playing. The area is very small and it is very noisy. You could not here each other talk. Would recommend maybe they start a little later.

Really enjoyed our birthday dinner and had a great window booth and live music to make the evening extra special! Food was incredible and so was the drink menu and wine list. Will definitely go back and highly recommend The Quiet Woman to friends and family! The hostess was also very accommodating, as was our waitress!

Maximos the busboy is an asset and amazing.
Giselle is a hard worker and her loyalty to the business is apparent, however her client relations requires some professional training

Most importantly the hostess is the woman in charge 😁

Overall the experience was nice and highly recommend. Since we visit the area year round, we shall return.

The hostess was very nice and accommodating, she knew all the regulars and greeted them warmly. She allowed us to decide if we wanted to eat inside ( which is noisy, but great to people watch and make new friends) or outside. Outside was much quieter and more private. The service was wonderful, everything you would expect from a nice restaurant. Wine selection was great and highly recommend the Lazy Susan salad. Our meal was exactly as ordered and very good. We listened to the band for a few minutes on the way out, but in standing room only. Overall a nice experience if you don't mind noise.

The best place to celebrate a special occasion! While the inside is back to normal, the courtyard has its special draw.
Growing up in Boston many summer meals are taken outside and lovely. The QW has made the dining experience outside sensational. As we move through the seasons once again it would be fun to remain al fresco-sweaters are fun, comfortable, and keep you comfortably warm...

The QW is special and we are always happy with the culinary result!

Thank you all very much for a special night!

Be patient with QW as they figure out the inside/outside service. This is our favorite restaurant and last night was not the excellent experience we always have. They did an outstanding job trying to serve all the people while managing the larger format.
Once they figure things out i have no doubt it will be the amazing place it has always been
