“The Latest Chef has taken this fine restaurant up one notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Having eaten here several times, when attending the local theater, we always have had very good meals. This time we were delighted that the former sous chef has now taken over after a period at the Publyk Restaurant in Bennington, VT. He has a fresh and innovated take on the salmon, with a light sauce on a perfectly grill fillet. The pasta was very good as well. The only thing we missed was an expresso, but the pressed coffee was very good.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Mezze was a great find, with delicious local and seasonal dishes. The service was attentive and knowledgable. The restaurants is divided into a few rooms which makes for a more intimate space. Our dinners were really outstanding.

“great food, limited menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Three of our party of 4 were very happy with our dinner. The 4th person said he had to settle for a dish because there were few choices. It is a limited menu and I, too, would have liked a few more options. That said, the pasta dish both my husband & I had was terrific. The waiter was friendly and helpful and quickly poured more wine when our friends commented on the short pour in their glasses. Prices are a bit on the high side.

Food was very good as well as service. Menu was limited and pricey but worth the experience. Local produce and very fresh and organic food.

Food is well prepared and plated. Portions are excellent - not too big but very satisfying. A great place to go in Williamstown.
