We were a party of four and sat in the front room which like all of the rooms is cozy and romantic. Because there are few tables, the noise is low which is a luxury on the Cape. We had a great waitress who really knew the menu, as well as, the specials and was very attentive. The Inn serves great and varied martinis and a good wine list. Three of us had the delicious escargot appetizer while the fourth had a creative caprese salad that also included strawberries. The only criticism was the kitchen ran out of the puff pastry for the escargot, and we weren't told in advance. Two of us had seafood curry, one rack of lamb, and one seafood stew. All main courses were excellent. The inn serves expresso and cappuccino , also hard to find on the Cape. We split two desserts including a flourless chocolate cake. It was a great evening. They are only open long weekends in the fall.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant! From the moment we walked in the staff and atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food was FABULOUS and the service exceptional. I highly recommend the escargot appetizer as we as the scallops and halibut entrees. We had a great time and if you're on the Cape don't miss it!

Extremely disappointing. Went here for dinner on what we hoped would be a special night. Service was slow and inattentive. We waited on the waitress more than she waited on us. Atmosphere is classy and is really what you are paying for as the food is nothing to write home about. My wife and I are both foodies and we were not impressed with what we were served. I know the management likes to respond to negative reviews as if they were scolding a child for not eating his or her vegetables but if that was the case at Bramble Inn one could not blame the child. At $30 per plate every part of the meal should be exquisitely and creatively prepared. The food we received was minimally prepared and uninspired. Unseasoned mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus, also unseasoned. The scallops were fresh and nicely sautéed but the sauce underneath them was lacking in flavor. We also found the seafood curry to be quite plain. The appetizer salad we split was on par with Panera Bread. All said and done, if you can overlook the food and hit or miss service, this is a charming little place to enjoy a romantic evening. We won't be coming back.

We had high expectations because it was highly rated by Zagats, but we were disappointed. The food was tasty, but the portions were small and overpriced. Worse, the service was below expectations. As we were a party of 6+ a 20% tip was automatically added and we felt it was undeserved. Given Bramble Inn's reputation, we expected great food and great/professional service. I'd say the quality of the food was 4 stars, the price/value was 1 star and the service was 2 stars. The food was good but overall the experience disappointed us.

We were very disappointed with our meal. I order scallops, which were very pricey. Three scallops arrived on small bed of lettuce. I thought it was the appetizer. My wife's swordfish was over cooked. Service averageWill not go back.
