Loved this place - a top favorite of wonderful dining experiences! If you want something unique, a bit European with New England thrown in, with thoughtful, creative menus and exceptional ingredients, this is it. Loved everything they served - I don't think you could go wrong with anything they offer. If you don't eat meat, notify them in advance, and... More

It is different....they usually post in morning what they will have in evening. Whatever it is that's your dinner but let me say IT IS FABULOUS. The sauces are spot on, the food never over done and if they have seafood .....get it. It is full quickly so you should try to get a reservation if they will take one.... More

The hype on this place is HUGE. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its reputation. While the food was good, it was certainly not exceptional. The entrée was an uninspiring sirloin served with fingerling potatoes, circa 1990. The blue cheese on the salad, the shrimp, scallops and clam app, and the cheesecake dessert were the highlights. But, again, underwhelming... More

By hubby and I dined there recently. We have visited the island on numerous occasions and this was the first time we could get reservations. The meal was superb! Our meat was the best ...melted in your mouth. BUT....those interested need to remember that it is a set menu, so there are no "swaps'. Also, just wine...would've loved a cocktail... More

Everything about our meal was amazing. Each course was delicious (including the best crab cake I've ever had). Wine selection was fab, and reasonably priced. Given how much it costs to have a merely good meal on nantucket, this was simply wonderful.

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
