We came in on a snowy Friday evening. Though I called ahead and was put "on hold" for so long that I finally pushed the red button, when we arrived there were still scattered empty tables. We were asked if we'd like to dine upstairs which we agreed to. So glad we did! It was immediately quieter, more secluded and... More

DryChicken sliders and greasy potato fries. I was disappointed. Our server appeared miffed at our request to order and then refill our drinks. For sure she was not pleased with the $5. Tip on the $29 tab. A real disappointment.

Enjoyed the eclectic decor and atmosphere. Friendly staff. Salmon Niçoise salad with fried onions, turkey burger on gluten free bread, jambalaya all were excellent. Nice selection of local beers. The focaccia with salsa was great. Nice dessert selection. All moderately priced and casual.

Sweet Lorraine's has been a favorite restaurant of mine for years! I have very good memories of the food and the service since childhood. However, I took my Dad to the restaurant last Tuesday, we were all but forgotten. We were seated at 5:00pm and waited 30 minutes for a server. I asked three other servers to at least give... More

Although it was a very busy night, the service was very efficient, friendly and cordial. The fish and chips were a fried tilapia that was lightly breaded and a huge serving with a special tartar sauce. The best fish and chips we've ever had! I also ordered a side salad and was surprised to have pickled red onions on it... More

The restaurant was smaller than I thought it would be. I called ahead to see if we needed reservations and the young lady I spoke with was probably the nicest person I have ever spoken to on the phone. Our waiter was very nice and friendly. The drinks and food, I thought was just. ...okay, especially at the prices they... More

We had a very tasty dinner at this beautiful restaurant. We were so thankful that they take reservations. The chef has been dedicated to using local ingredients for many years. She is highly acclaimed for creating fabulous seasonal dishes. This restaurant is a must for foodies and locavores.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner, starting with the server. She had a chicken dish and I had the steak. Neither of us wanted the potatoes and bread, but we were given other options-fresh vegetables. We shared the "ala carte" salad. My steak was plentiful and cooked to perfection. My wife's chicken was a bit overcooked, probably microwaved,... More
