    This our favorite restaurant in town! Always a good time and the food never disappoints. The swordfish is exceptional, as well as the baseball steak.

    We ate dinner here last night with a couple of friends for the first time. Everything was good until we ordered our dinner which took close to an hour to come after we had ordered and we did not see our waitress once during that time period to even ask for an update. After we finished eating the front desk host asked if we wanted any desert or more drinks, we said no to both at the time because we still had full drinks and he quickly brought us the bill and we felt extremely rushed out of our table when we really just wanted to sit and enjoy our drinks for a bit.

    Our dining experience was a complete disaster from the start. We were seated 30 minutes past our reservation, a drink was spilled all over me, the server got our drink order wrong and then showed attitude when we politely asked to make it right, the overcrowded restaurant had people standing over our table when they sat a group of 10 at a table for 4… The restaurant did NOTHING to make it right and were totally aware of everything that happened.

    We hadn’t been here since before the lockdowns so we decided to go here almost at the last minute. The food was excellent. We split the BLT salad and the baseball steak entree. I’d order both again. This was after we had a half dozen fresh oysters as an appetizer. The wines by the glass could be better in my opinion. Otherwise it was a great dinner.

    The food is consistently great. This time we tried the bittersweet chocolate dessert and it was amazing. The service was great. The band at 9pm was great. However at 7:30 it was already so noisy it was hard to hear ourselves talking. It’s a great, high energy restaurant. Just be sure the sound level won’t be a problem for your party.

    The Quiet Woman is a CdM landmark and neighborhood gem. Tiffany did a wonderful job serving and guiding us toward the menu items best-matched to our tastes. The wine list deserves its awards based on its quality offerings and reasonable prices. The entrees are large so consider sharing to save room for the amazing desserts.

    This was such a hidden gem! This place was very lively and a full house! The place has a very swanky ambiance with a fun loud crowd for a friday night! The crowd was fun with live music. The food and drinks were also delicious.

    The Quiet Woman is perfect local hangout but if want a quiet place for dinner DON'T Friday or Saturday, the noise level is so bad you can't even talk to the person sitting next to.

    My partner and I visited The Quiet Woman last night for the first time since before covid hit. It was lovely to be back. The place was its full bore, high energy self. The wine list is deep and offers a lot of interesting bottles at fair prices. The bar produces killer martinis, a must for a top flight establishment. The menu offers lots of variety that includes some wonderful old timey favorites, e.g., a true baseball cut steak. Our dinner consisted of butternut squash raviolis in a sage brown butter sauce and swordfish tacos (for my partner) and grilled swordfish with great mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Preparation was spot on. Just a great place to spend an evening. My only puzzlement? The fifty dollar per person deposit to complete one’s reservation. An oddity in these parts.

    Spectacular as always… We have not been back for several weeks due to family obligations and just being away, but our return was so much fun…. The gang was all there, the food was better than ever, and the general feel of the place was upbeat and seemingly back to “normal”, whatever that means any more!!! Always the best!!! JA

    THE BEST salmon I have ever had. No joke. The salmon with the coconut rice was amazing, my friends got the Nantucket scallops and the salmon as well, we were all very satisfied. For the table we got the calamari which is a must in my book. Everything tasted phenomenal, the atmosphere is enjoyable and all the decor is beautiful.
