Food was excellent and wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Great wine list. Wait was a bit long and room can get noisy. But overall, very good experience.

Dined here twice for dinner during our stay at the Cloister, once in a large group and once just with family of 3. Food and service was wonderful both nights and tried several different dishes. Will definitely return if we are in the area again.

Beautiful view of the river and food was perfect! Pasta was good. Truffle peas are phenomenal. Full drink menu. I had a Mule. Great kids dinner. Wish they had fish as an option for kids. Our waiter was excellent and very attentive.
