Oh boy. My husband and I were seated at a small table for two despite several empty 4 tops. We visited past 7:00pm on a Sunday and the usually busy bar was empty. There seemed to be a delay and then confusion over who would...More

Oh Boy, is so right. we totally agree this type of service is unthinkable. Our sincere apologies. It is that we probably understaffed for this shift due to the history of Sunday evenings being typically slow this summer. Although they are 2 and 3 year...More

We and our 2.5 yo grandson had fried green tomato with burrata , Bolognese and pappadell and Maine clams over a noodle bed with white wine, garlic, tomato sauce. Marvelous. Quiet enough for a conversation with delightful linens from France. The bread basket was wonderful.

Dear Mr. Pinkham: I'm not sure how you can say "all the other reviews," if you take the "poor" and "terrible" reviews equal about 20% of the reviews posted. Another 20% defined it as average. We appreciate getting good food for a good value for our money. It seems that was not apparent for us and others. I may indeed be incorrect on the seating numbers, but July Fourth weekend, one would think that :excess" space would be in demand. I do not wish to get into a pissing match here. I try to be as forthright as possible with my reviews. If a place excels, I will post it as such, even noting minor missteps. But if a place is deserving of poor marks, I will post that too. Yes, it is subjective, but I've eaten in some awesome low and high end places, and I've eaten in some horrible high end and low end places. Please accept my and the other less than wonderful reviews as constructive criticism and use it for the betterment of your establishment. I hope you succeed in that task.
