“Valentine disappointment”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

I was thrilled when my husband booked this restaurant for Valentine's day. We have eaten in most Mystic restaurants but this was our first time at Latitude. I enjoyed my meal very much and, of course, the quality of food has to be uppermost for any restaurant. My husband wasn't so pleased with his choices but still enjoyed the food. The reasons I can't rate this restaurant more highly are, in no particular order as they say: the restaurant is terribly lacking in atmosphere (next year, please at least have a rose in a vase on the table for valentines, or offer ladies a single rose to take home), perhaps have a special valentines cocktail to offer to guests eg a kir royale, offer guests coffee at the end of the meal and check that there's nothing else they might want before presenting a bill, clear the plates from one course before arriving with the next and expecting diners to hold their plates in the air while you put down the next course, think about whether it might be possible to help guests with coats and offer to hang them up before they are seated because it feels very tacky to have all your winter clothes hanging on the back of your chair and on the floor around you. These comments are meant to be constructive. The chefs are being let down by front of house. You need to make diners feel a bit special and lose the conveyor belt mentality. Other Mystic restaurants are much better at that.

“Terrible place to stop...keep going”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We went there for dinner and it was quite disappointing. The lobster panini was decent but we waited for over an hour for our meal and it was lukewarm when it arrived. The service was poor and the table next to us had a terrible experience....they had been there for over 4 hrs for dinner. There were very customers so I don't know why the service was so poor but the food was also. Maybe they were short staffed. In any case, we won't be returning.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

We received a voucher for a free chowder from the Seaport and it was that thought that kept me walking around in the cold as long as I did. It was totally worth it! That chowder was delicious! Then we had burgers and fries which were also delicious and the special ale. I couldn't fault it. The pub is very welcoming with lots of interesting stuff on the walls and the staff were super friendly. If I'm ever in Mystic again I'll definitely be back here.

“What a surprise”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

We had driven by this restaurant several times and never thought to stop until a Taste of Mystic lured us in. What a delightful surprise! Even though the restaurant was packed a table for us was found by a window. The service was prompt despite the crowd and the food was delicious. We have been back since and not disappointed.

“Okay Buffet”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

My family and I decided to go there for Thanksgiving this year, because the menu sounded fabulous. As always, if it sounds too good to be true at such a reasonable price, it probably is. Although there were all the choices advertised, the quality was not great. The turkey was so salty I couldn't eat it. Very disappointing when that was the main reason I went. The other items were all only okay. The restaurant was very, very small for the number of people, and the layout was not at all conducive to a buffet setting. You had to walk past all the guests coming in to get to the buffet and then again to get to the dessert area. Too cramped and uncomfortable. Food average. I would not go again.
