We had a great dinner with friends. The server was very friendly and food was wonderful. We were happy that we had a reservation, as it was very busy. The fireplace was going and had a great atmosphere. Definitely plan to dine there again soon.

Our meals were tasty, the service from Mike was excellent, and my food arrived as ordered with no seasoning...seems to be a difficult thing to accommodate most places.

Service is a little on the slow side. Totally unique menu though and worth paying the extra money this will cost if you are into trying new things. Our dessert got overcooked but they remade it for us. They also marked us as no shows on open table but when we pointed it out, they fixed it. Very nice people, classy place. Love to have drinks by the fireplaces.

We have enjoyed this place before. Big 30th birthday for my son. 8 of us. Mediocre service. No (zero) attentiveness to gluten free (4 of us). Candles kept going out. Music too loud. Sllloooww service. You were informed about the big family event. No acknowledgement of that at all. Why drive so far for a C+ experience?

We love the Turf Room and go there 2-3 times a year. This time, however, the restaurant was too warm. We were seated in a quieter area of the restaurant which was nice, but it became unbearably stuffy for all 4 of us (two in their early 20s; 2 in their 50s). Unfortunately, it took away from the great meal that we had. Also, our service started out good, but it became obvious that our server just had too many tables, and as the meal progressed, it took longer to get service (i.e., dessert order, check). So waiting for service when we were all very warm was unpleasant. On the positive side, the food was excellent.

A little pricey but the food is good. GF items noted on menu, however $8.00 up charge for GF pasta when the dishes are already pricey is ridiculous! Great Martinis.

Our server disappeared after our food came. We had to be at a show so ran out of time to order dessert and drunks since he left us for over 15 min without coming back. Great food and atmosphere though.

We request the wine library room which was quieter than the bar area. Our service lady was very friendly. The soups were a little salty. The food looked good but the flavors were bland in the duck dish. the meatloaf dish was more flavorful.

Great place for my aunt and her four nieces to meet for dinner while she is in town. Food ( lobster bisque, farfalle, lighthouse salad and more) and drinks were delicious. We had a lot of catching up to do and we were never rushed to get us out of there though it was a busy Friday night. I highly recommend The Turf Room!

We celebrated two anniversaries and had an absolutely lovely time! Always a great experience at the Turf Room. Our waitress was a doll and they even treated us to desserts for the occasion. Love the surprise Chef's tasting appetizer - ours was a cauliflower puree with peppers & pickled onion. The ambiance is perfect for most occasions - very intimate, very distinct. Highly recommended!

We had to eat and run however the food and beverages were excellent. We asked to be in and out in an hour, due to theatre, and staff were all hands on deck to find out what we liked/wanted, worked to meet our needs quickly without haste, and every action they took was pleasant and peaceful even as they did things faster to meet our schedule. We also were treated to a chef's surprise as the waiter brought us a "tasting" based on chef's ideas and items available that evening. It was delightful and is one of the reasons we'd go back sooner. Loved the Wine Bar room as it was quieter than main restaurant.

Warm and inviting ambiance
Knowledgeable, friendly, professional service
Very creative and skillfully crafted cocktails; excellent options for “call” brands of whiskey, Vodka, Gin, Tequila, Rum
Large wine list with clear, helpful descriptions and excellent wines across a broad price spectrum
Great beer list including rotating craft / artisanal beer list NOT dominated by acrid Overhopped IPAs.

The BEST pork shank I have ever had. And Im a shank guy. Menu teems with delicious sounding items.
