Quaint place to share lunch if the wait at Red Lion Inn is too long. Food was just average in size, taste, and overall creativity.

Selected this restaurant based on reviews. The service was attentive, but the food was average. The chicken special was lackluster. The fish was fine. One person in our group had the beef tenderloin and said it was excellent. The gelato was top notch. If in the area again, would give this place another shot.

A very nice meal in the evening before a show. Rack of lamb was the best ever, a generous portion and reasonably priced. My daughter, who is a vegetarian, thoroughly enjoyed the gnocchi and Caesar salad. Service was attentive, not intrusive.

I enjoyed a delicious dinner (a very generous starter was enough for me). The dish was beautifully prepared and the service wonderful.

We were looking for a place to eat prior to going to the theater and Trip Advisor pointed us in this direction. Made a reservation. The place is small and reminds me of an old established Greenwich restaurant. Service was prompt with just the right amount of caretaking (not too little; not too hovering). And the food was most excellent.... More

My wife and I agreed that the menu was interesting, and the food was very good. The service was attentive and friendly. I don't know if it was exceptional but it was certainly well above average. The restaurant is on the small side and am not sure if could accommodate a large group but it was perfect for my wife... More

We decided to go to this "out of the way" location to avoid hustle and bustle. We had a window seat and enjoyed our meals and the service. Definitely recommended.

Great food in a relatively small space. Reservations are a must for dinner, especially during the busy summer season. We enjoyed a delicious dinner prior to attending a play at the nearby Berkshire Playhouse. We shared a gnocchi appetizer (on special that evening) which was yummy, followed by Maine style crab cakes and salmon served on a bed of Asian... More
