                                          There was a longer than usual wait time to get our table which had no napkins on it, The onion soup that I was given had bread so stale In it that I thought it was cardboard. The salmon was very average and nothing special as were the potatoes served with it. The Chef must be different. The bread looked wonderful but was tasteless. The Library was lovely as usual, but I was surprised to see someone wearing gym shorts in there.

                                          We were charged for 2 glasses if champagne the waitress brought for my girlfriend's birthday. We assumed they were complimentary since we did not order them. Server was subpar, this being the second time we had her. Drink were never asked to be refilled and our table went unchecked for long periods of time.

                                          Our dinner on Sunday evening was very nice. Quite enough so one could caring on a conversation and being able to look out on at the garden made for a delighfully dinner. The food and wine were very good as usual. Then only disapointment was they had run out of salmon by six.

                                          Service was excellent. When we arrived it was delightfully quiet until the room began to fill. It then became hard to converse Some at our table aside the food was rather bland- Needed significant table salt. Portion size was good.

                                          Our waiter was overwhelmed. We had to ask twice for everything and identified that we were celebrating a birthday which was never acknowledged.

                                          Burgers were over cooked and tasteless. Pork tenderloin was also overcooked and too much pepper was used. Most of it was left. Rhubarb pie was actually a galette. Too much crust. Very little filling. Definitely not the same quality of food as in the past.

                                          Charming venue. Old world and classy. Food ok. Wine list limited, but very reasonably priced. All the charm of a classy New England Inn. Delightful and attentive staff. My Cesar salad was very good. I had the 5 once filet with an 8 oz lobster tail. the steak was tender and cook to my specifications, but too salty. The lobster tail was tender but tasteless.

                                          The Roycroft was a great experience. The food was great, they have a very nice menu. And I felt a good value.

                                          We had an enjoyable dinner. The staff is very friendly without hovering, and the food arrived fairly quickly. Everything was delicious from appetizer to dessert. The menu used to changed seasonally but at least as far as the vegetarian options go, was the same throughout the entire past year. The restaurant itself is a gorgeous example of the Roycroft/Art & Crafts movement, so glad that the campus has been maintained.

                                          Had high hopes for this brunch. I went there a few years ago and was really impressed. This trip was disappointing. The food was very very average and we had to wait for the trays to be replenished.

                                          We went on Good Friday and had the fish fry … fish was huge, excellent taste, came with all the typical sides, great value ! Our server Dave did a good job considering he was the only one taking care of the whole room.

                                          We were seated inside because the weather turned inhospitable, which was very accommodating. There was a great live solo musician playing. Dinner is delicious, service was fantastic and the atmosphere is elegantly peaceful. Love the Roycroft!

                                          Made a reservation 3 months ahead and still had to wait for them to move our table. Dinner took forever to arrive!Food was cold- everyone at the table had cold food. Waiter dropped the food off and Never returned to see how it was. Never returned until to leave dessert menu! We arrived at 530 left at 830. Way too long! And they had a band blasting music so loud you couldn’t talk! I paid a large bill for 8 ppl for a special occasion and it was terrible.
