Foreign Affairs is no longer and has been replaced by a BETTER restaurant Black Arrow in the same space where Foreign Affairs was.

We celebrated a friend's birthday and the food was excellent! The scallops were wonderful! The half order was plenty! The chocolate cake was delicious!! The cake was enough for 3 people! The coffee was rich! We had a relaxing fun time!

Thoroughly enjoyed a recent birthday celebration at Foreign Affair. If you are lucky, it's one of those places 'where everyone knows your name.' Great wine list, and bartender Shannon's is a mixology wizard. Delicious fresh, local, farm-to-table food. Amazing presentation. Friendly service and personalized attention....More

My wife and I had a very nice dinner recently. Good food and wine, great atmosphere (cozy fireplace), and very nice waiters. However, even though the restaurant was less than 1/2 filled, the noise level was unpleasantly high (most it coming from the less-than-full bar...More
