“Good fresh food”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This restaurant has recently opened in May 2014. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with several intimate eating areas, nice and calm and different to other restaurants in the area. The food is freshly cooked Italian dishes. We had clam linguine as a half portion which was a nice size-not like most American sized portions. The restaurant was not too busy so the service we experienced was friendly and efficient. Laura, the waitress was very good and the chefs accommodating. This was one of the most enjoyable meals we experienced on Cape Cod, not overwhelming with excellent quality food and service.

“New chef makes Lyric great!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Past reviews were mixed but when I saw the new chef was a well known chef in the area, I booked immediately. Food was fantastic. Duck was cooked perfectly and the gorgonzola walnut gnocchi gives new meaning to melt in your mouth. All while a live pianist and singer set the mood. Make a reservation now before the word gets out.

“LYRIC is back on track”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We have been going to Lyric since it opened 5 years ago and found it to be a breath of fresh air on the cape. Great food and an intimate and elegant atmosphere. Unfortunately, last year after a new chief took over, the menu and the food became very disappointing. Well this past week we heard that for this season, a new chief was on board and the menu had been almost totally revamped, now having an Italian flair and decided to give Lyric another try. Very glad we did. They now have a great menu with food was excellent. Hand made gnocchi with a fantastic sauce, creamy risotto with Italian ham and peas and beef carpaccio just to mention a few. If you are looking for an intimate and cozy restaurant with great food and light entertainment, try Lyric. You won't be disappointed.

We had dinner twice at the Lyric. Food was excellent and service great. Especially enjoyed the singer and pianist who performed Jazz on the Saturday evening.

“Prix fixe dinner portions are very small!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We ordered prix fixe dinner and the portions were very small and I am not a big eater!. Salad was delicious (what there was of it). Linguini with clam sauce VERY rich and overly salted by too much bacon and a creamy sauce. I didn't mind that it was app size because it was enough! The pumpkin soup was pretty good (would be better without lemon in it). Pumpkin bread pudding delicious!
Service was excellent. Food ok......just didn't know prix fixe means scaled down sized portions on everything!
