Excellent experience from the time we sat down until the time we left. We were in a group of 6 and my wife’s meal came out a little late, they took it off the bill which wasn’t expected, we enjoyed ourselves so much that it didn’t matter. Will be back soon!

We had an outstanding dining experience. From the moment we entered the restaurant until we departed every detail was handled by a polite and friendly staff member. Emily was our delightful server who spent a good amount of time explaining the menu and details about particular ingredients. It is a compliment to the management and a joy to experience such excellent team work by all of the staff. Thank you for keeping this gem in the area. It is by far our favorite restaurant.

Our first visit to The Tailor and the Cook certainly did not disappoint. We went for Valentine’s Day and they had a special menu. Look - the food is excellent. I think that’s a given. What I most enjoyed about the food was the mixtures of tastes that I’d never before experienced. The textures that followed textures in the courses was expertly tailored. But...bar none... what made the night was the attentiveness of the entire staff. The service was the best I’ve experienced anywhere. Any time we had an additional request, there wasn’t the slightest hint of being put out in any way. From the host, to the bartender, to the wait staff to the chef who even came to speak with us after supper. We really, truly felt welcome there. We’ll be back.

We had a delightful yearly Valentine's Day (On April 13) meeting with another
couple. The waiters were attentive, the special dinner was interesting and delicious,
and the sound was quiet enough for good conversation.

Wanted to take the wife out for birthday / valentines and decide to try this restaurant. The drinks were tasty and new. The food was great.
The desert left something to be desired.

I visit this place often and it’s always fantastic however this last experience was over the top. The beef Wellington was one of the best versions I’ve ever experienced. The preparation and flavor was perfect. We opted in for the dinner for two experience and left very happy. The service and attention from our waiter was awesome as well.

Great wine list, plus the emphasis on local ingredients. Great service, fabulous food.

Cheese platter, fresh and fantastic.

They provided champagne and culinary treats for our anniversary meal that just wowed us beyond belief.

Must mention the aged Filet Mignon was perfectly done that cuts like butter...and local cheesecake that is extraordinarily good.

So pleased with all aspects of Taylor & Cook experience.
