This was our 1st visit to the Monastery Restaurant. We bought a Groupon about a month ago and thought we would give it try! Reservations were required in order to use the groupon. I made my reservation the week before but then called that day to say we would be late. No problem! Great!!! When we arrived we were the only customers. The workers were all sitting at the back table. It smelled like were smoking. It smelled like fresh cig smoke not stale or old smoke. That was our first experience. Our server Ian was excellent. Super nice and very attentive. He brought fresh bread, apples and havarti cheese to our table. It was delish! He answered all of our questions and then we ordered. Although our food was very good, the portions were extremely small in relation to the price. Even with the Groupon, we felt that we paid too much. The bathrooms needed a little attention also. So it wasn't that the food was bad, it was quite good. It just was overpriced and the cig smoke didn't help matters either. While we were there two other couples arrived also. I overheard one of the other couples say 'that would would prefer more food and not dessert" when asked if they wanted to order dessert.
