This is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. The food is always good, but the magical part is the location and the space inside. It feels like a private dinner party in a secluded room on a cobblestone street, with all candle light, and often a harp player at dinner. How can it get better than that? The... More

Yes, Nantucket has plenty of good restaurants, but this one stands out. The food is delicious; the service excellent; the small space is comfortable and cozy. And it's consistently like that, I'm guessing because the chef is also the owner. The menu is fixed, but it's posted on their web site ahead of time so you can decide if you... More

If you are looking for an amazing romantic dinner and ambience that is intimate and tastefully done, this is the place for you. OK...,So let's start when you first enter this small, elegant establishment. The decor is eclectically whimsical, yet truly adds to the setting. "Way Cool" for all you hipsters!!! The kitchen is open and everyone in the restaurant... More

Terribly overrated. It's price-fixe and we happened to hit "surf & turf" night (how 70s is that?). Set menu is $70 for 3 courses: a single scallop is your appy, dessert is sponge cake and a scoop of unremarkable vanilla ice cream placed on a sort of peanut/malted milk sauce. The entree was HALF of an already small "lobster tail"... More

I came to this restaurant after finding my initial destination was closed on Tuesdays; I walked in & asked for a table & the host said "let me check because we have already allotted the food for this eve"- huh? Turns out that this is a pre-set menu for a set price & wow was it terrific! I turned up... More

On our latest trip to Nantucket, I wanted to find a place my husband had never been to before (he summered in Nantucket while growing up). This was no easy task, and was surprised when he said he had never been to the Company of the Cauldron when we walked passed by the apparently warm and inviting decor one day... More

As a long time summer visitor to Nantucket(50 Years), I have been to many restaurants. Since the Company of the Cauldron opened many years ago, the quality of the cuisine and the service levels have always been 5 Star. It is rare that a restaurant can keep these high standards over so many years. I love the Prix Fixe menu,... More

Had a last minute invite to Nantucket and wanted to take boss and his wife out for a fabulous dinner as a thank you. After research and some reassurance from locals, we went to Company of the Cauldron. What a treat, what a fabulous meal and everyone left saying they were so glad I pushed to go there ! The... More

This is the 20th time we have eaten here. It is always good and consistent even though the menu changes weekly. Sometime you can be sitting right next to a celebrity, last week it was Eric Dane. The owners work in the restaurant for each meal seating and make sure everything is perfect.

We were really looking forward to "Lobster Four Ways" tonight at Company of the Cauldron. This is the every-Monday-night fixed price lobster fest of lobster bisque, a (small) lobster cake with a (small) wedge of romaine with a very good dressing, an enormous lobster claw and half a tail with a couple of sauces and German potato salad, followed by...
