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.

Why did we wait 35 years?????

Without a doubt THE BEST meal we have enjoyed on the island since we came here on our honeymoon! The real deal is that either they were booked or the menu did not work for both of us.

We have dined here multiple times and have always left completely satisfied. The food is exquisite and the wine list is strong and reasonable. What makes the experience is the service. Every team member with whom we interacted was kind and helpful. Check the menu if you have strong preferences since it is a set meal, but, if it looks... More

Nantucket is a small island with a few great restaurants and a lot of very sophisticated palates. The 6 or 7 elite restaurants staked their claims long ago and must consistently innovate in order to survive this competitive environment. Over the course of 35 years it would be near impossible for the fare at any particular eatery not to fluctuate.... More

We ate at the Company of the Cauldron as a special treat on our honeymoon trip to Nantucket and I'm so glad we did. The evening's menu was perfect and did not disappoint at all!! If we weren't in polite company, I would have licked my plates clean but I didn't want to embarrass my husband! The seasonings were just... More

We've eaten your several times upon recommendations. Both times the food was extremely good. Yes, it's expensive but the food quality and preparation is out of this world.I wouldn't take kids but this is a very good place to take a significant other or spouse. Leave the girlfriend home and spend the money on the wife

We visited Company of the Cauldron on October 7th based upon a recommendation from a fellow visitor who’s visited Nantucket every year for 20 years. We held high expectations but in hindsight wondered why one set-menu all served at the same time was a good idea – when have you ever had good food at a wedding or corporate function... More

Consistently excellent, it's amazing what this team accomplishes in the tiny kitchen. Fresh ingredients and lots of creativity go into every dish. It's always a fixed menu, but I wouldn't have it any other way. If I could only give it just one more star...

We had a quick walk from our Inn, and despite the rain and wind, which actually added to the ambiance of the restaurant, it was a perfect evening, I would not have wished for better weather. The cobbled streets were shining from the rain and the little lamps outside looked so good from inside. They had just one seating the... More

Outstanding! We visited for the first time during restaurant week and were not disappointed. Wonderful food and a great atmosphere. Would love to go back next time I visit the island.

We dine occasionally at the Company of the Cauldron and I am not sure why we don't go more often, because it has great food, a comfortable setting, a good wine list and fine service. How much more can you want in a restaurant. We were four and to a person we all thought we had a great meal. Again... More
