Do not go to this restaurant. The service was very slow. After an hour dinner it took 45 minutes to get a cup of coffee and our bill. I had lobster linguine and it was like cafeteria food. The owner was "supervising" the lowering of shades in the restaurant because someone had complained about sun in their eyes. It takes... More

The food was very good the service friendly and efficient and there is plenty of seating on or near the terrace which gives good views onto the water.

We are out-of-towners and wanted to dine at this restaurant based on the reviews. We arrived at around 5:30 pm. The restaurant didn't seem too busy at the time. We stood by the door while the party in front of us got seated near us having been told by the host that they have to order an entrée to dine... More

We come back here as often as we can. The Menu is a short one; always the sign of a good restaurant. The food is excellent because the kitchen staff know what they do best & the service is excellent too. A super view of the Annapolis basin is a plus & is free!! Highly recommended by a trio that...

Stunning location/views. Excellent service, even better food. I've visited this lovely place every time I visit the area (3 or 4 times now in last 10 yrs). Still owned/run by same people, same owner/chef. Most recent visit was 18 Sept. 2014.

I visited with two friends. The food was alright but the evening was soured by the waitress who gave perfunctory service and rushed us out the door at the ridiculous closing time of 8:30pm.

This restaurant puts Annapolis Royal on the culinary world stage. To begin our evening, Angela accommodated us ( our anniversary celebration) by seating us at the most perfect table for 2. We were so pleased with our choices- the pan -seared scallops, most delicately prepared, as well as the encrusted haddock with scallop combo were both exquisite...we haven't had spaetzle... More

Our gracious servers and host clearly wanted to please. They certainly did!! Restaurant Compose's food was fresh, exquisitely prepared and served with graciousness. My husband and I had no reservations but we were able to sit out on the deck watching the sun set on the Annapolis River and enjoy the best dinner in the whole town. What a treat!

I am not from the area but was there unexpectedly on business so decided to eat there. Was told by a less than friendly hostess that they take the last table at 7:50 but she had checked with the kitchen and they said it was okay to seat us...it was 7:53. Here's a tip, we are from out of town,... More
