Description: Quinn Hatfield's deft touch in the kitchen shines through on his short but dead-on, market-fresh menu. Appetizers are playful: Fabulously fleshy charred octopus is offset by a citrus-candied orange rind, and an updated croque madame features fresh hamachi, along with proscuitto, quail egg and out-of-this-world brioche. Main courses are uniformly excellent, be it juicy pan-roasted seabass, meaty duck breast that eats like a steak, and luscious, mint-crusted rack of lamb. For desserts, Karen Hatfield outdoes herself with the molten-centered house specialty chocolate peanut butter truffle cake, which is worth every decadent calorie its name promises.

I recently ate here for a business dinner that I was hosting. The restaurant was very understanding about our (traffic-caused) delayed arrival. Our server was outstanding. He was extremely helpful with menu and wine suggestions and very knowledgeable about them, too. His service was attentive without being obnoxious. The meal was one of the very best I've ever had.

Visited Hatfields for a dinner party in one of their private rooms and had an awesome time. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and professional. The food here is definitely Michelin star quality, the most memorable dish has to be the 36hr braised short rib, it literally melts in your mouth, I didn't know it was possible to make short... More

We were early birds at Hatfield's arriving at 5.30 pm on a Saturday night. The dining room is bright and airy, and we sat at a booth with a great view of the kitchen. Everything about this meal was perfect; the food is amazing with great flavor combinations, service is friendly and efficient, excellent wine list with some unfamiliar (at... More

I had a great adventure ordering from a prefixed menu. Wow! I had some scallops with a bed of plum sauce and chop nuts. It was a wonderful combination of flavors exploding on my mouth! Cheese cake was very good. Portions are relatively ok for the prefixed menu. I will be back soon, Michael Dergar

We went to Hatfield's on a sunday evening. We arrived at 20:30 and we were the latest guests. The restaurant is very nice with plenty of space. The restaurant wasn't fully booked and after a while it became more and more empty. We chose the prix fixe menu and started with a cocktail. The sashimi was just delicious, the octopus... More

My wife and daughter met up with friends here for dinner. The meal was excellent and we had a great view of the kitchen behind the glass wall. Service was impeccable and each dish was pretty damn good. I'm not sure why I'm not giving this 5 stars but something just didn't make it the perfect evening. I'd recommend the... More

This has got to be one of the top 5 meals I have had in my life. As a self-proclaimed foodie, I do not say this lightly. We went there for our 10th anniversary dinner, made an early reservation (we are early dinner-eaters) and got the best seat in the house, if you’re a foodie: the booth directly facing the... More
