We were really looking forward to going to toppers after reading great reviews and having visited other Relais & Chateaux establishments. However, although the service and staff were great, the same sadly cannot be said for the food. It was restaurant week and therefore we had the $45 dollar menu - chicken burgers and small steaks were on offer -... More

This was not a standard visit as it was a 90th (surprise) birthday visit involving 10 family members, so we were in a semi private room off the main restaurant area. However, service was its usual excellence at Toppers. The food also conformed to its high standard especially the "short ribs" entree. Several of the diners found the duck portion... More

We found Toppers by accident, during a drive around Nantucket. Post-season, so only a few diners were on the patio, and we discovered quickly that it was on the upper end of the price scale. One of our party had the burger, the rest of us had clam chowder with a side. Asparagus was tasty and fresh, my 'frites' were... More

Did the chefs tasting menu. Everything was inventive, beautifully presented and delicious. We were not disappointed. The blueberry soufflé desert was memorable. Service was first rate.

Food is top shelf, interesting preparations showing taste and technique. Service is adequate ,but a little disengaged, while not being attentive. They also try very hard to sell things, caviar for example without seeming to understand what is being offered . The sommelier was not pleased that our wine selection was different from his suggestion, he never seemed to get... More

Beautiful scenery, excellent service, fabulous fare made this outdoor lunch worth repeating every time I'm on Nantucket. Try the Wau-tini, but don't even think about driving in summer traffic afterwards.
