Reopening Mothers Day weekend May 8h, 9th, 10th If you want to feel as if you have your own private chef, make reservations to dine at The Company of the Cauldron. Located in the heart of Nantucket's Historic District, the abundant charm of this small red building with ivy-covered windows invites you to enter. Inside the doorway massed flowers greet you on the antique bakers rack. Just beyond, tables glow softly, lit only by candles. The kitchen is open and can be seen from the dining room. Classical harp music wafts in the background three evenings of the week. Romantic ambience abounds.

Incredible Meal

We ate here on Saturday evening, July 26th for the 8:45 seating. We started with the lump crab cake, which was absolutely to die for. The Beef Wellington entree just melted in your mouth. The flourless brownie with cherry gelato left us craving more. The romantic ambience of this restaurant is... read more

This classic Nantucket bistro is always a great experience. Few restaurants on Nantucket, Martha's or Block Islands can match much less exceed its service, ambience or food, none all three in my extensive experience. Hint: Place your reservations WELL in advance.

My family has been coming to Nantucket for 51 years. Somehow my parents found this amazing restaurant when it opened in the 1970's. Every summer since we enjoy an amazing dinner here. We also celebrated my parent's 50th anniversary here. The setting is intimate(love the harpist)and the food is consistently delicious and creative. Everyone who works there is very welcoming...

This is the best restaurant for a special occasion. Lobster Mondays are amazing...and another night we ate there was equally amazing. The wait staff are so cordial. The food is so delicious. Each course is masterfully prepared and then plated so artistically. Yes, its expensive but its worth every penny. And its small but they have a way of making... More

For our first night in Nantucket, I figured we would be tired from the trip (true), so we made reservations at Company of the Cauldron where there is a different fixed menu each day. The menu was chosen with care to highlight fresh, seasonal items. Food and service was top notch. Recommended!

Company is always excellent. A time or two each season, we look over weekly menu selections and pick a date which we want to try what is offered. Wine selection is always good and wait staff knows the pairing well with what is for dinner. Highly recommend CoC at least once a season!

This place does a fixed menu. The week's menu is posted -- so I encourage you to go buy and pick a night where you see something you might like. We had an amazing 4-course dinner there. A harpist played through the meal. Try it, you will like it.

This landmark restaurant, now over 40 years in the same romantic and atmospheric space, is a favorite to return to again and again. The food is superb, the hospitality welcoming and warm, the atmosphere (only about 30 diners) quiet and congenial, the music (harp) lilting and lovely, the mood understated and romantic. This is one of those little gems that... More

By far the most sophisticated meal we had on the island during our week long visit. Unusual concept -- a set prix fixe that changes every night. They post the menu for the week online and outside the restaurant. It must be fun for the chef because he/she can be inventive and creative every night. One person in the group... More

A very nice, small restaurant, intimate. It was a little crowded, due to it being restaurant week. We misunderstood the menu, and thought there was a choice of salmon or steak. I actually had the salmon for the appetizer, and steak with yucca fries for the entree. When we realized our mistake, Andrea, our waitress asked if we ate meat... More
