We have been enjoying the fine dining and fabulous atmosphere at The Cooks Shop for many years. We enjoy the escargot and shrimp as an app and we split the lamb chops. The signature salad which comes with the meal and the garlic bread make it a perfect meal. We are always made welcome and special when we dine here.... More

Wonderful service, just all around great... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many years and the food is consistently good. It is located down a flight of stairs and the atmosphere is both intimate and cozy. The menu has not changed much over the years but why change a good thing. The prices have not changed much either. I have celebrated many milestones here... More

We chose this restaurant for our girl's night out. The owner was extremely accommodating as we are nine woman who want a round table. We all like to be able to easily communicate and we find that the round table is the best way. The table was only supposed to seat 8 but they made an exception and set for... More

This restaurant has been around for years and there is a reason for that. The food and the service here are always top notch. It is a very quiet place to just sit, have some wine and enjoy while having and excellent meal. It is worth every penny.

Alfie was our fabulous waiter. Our food and service is always so consistent at the Cook's Shop! Our steaks are always cooked exactly as we request and the salad is yummy! The smell of the garlic as our pasta was cooking was phenomenal. We ended with a Cook Shop kiss drink! What a way to spend an evening with friends!

They offer a variety of high end food choices. If you like pasta, fish or steak this is the place for you. The service is excellent and I am never disappointed. A great place for a special night out.

Candle light dinner, great atmosphere, very good Italian cuisine. Value is also good. Reservations required most of the time. A must try for good Italian.
