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.

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 read up on the Chefs, husband and wife, prior to our dining experience. My wife and I travel for restaurants and I can say that this choice was spot on perfect. The food was fantastic! The wait staff attentive and pleasant. Gave us an opportunity to meet with the chefs. Chef Hatfield and his wife (Quinn and Karen) were... 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

This restaurant is absolutely great! The table settings, the decor and the atmosphere are superb! A professional staff, high class table settings, wonderful energy, immaculate restrooms and the most important part, gourmet food!

Every single dish was excellent. The portions perfect, the plating artistic. Even the bread was delicious. A foodie's delight - the price tag commensurate with a fine dining experience. The room is large with an open kitchen, tables not so close together that you feel intruded. Service was polite and helpful, not effusive. All in all a wonderful evening. Two... More

OK here is the scoop on this very famous place, now in the space formerly occupied by Citrus. All reviews will tell you how wonderful the food and service are - and they are so very correct. I ordered the squash soup and the sea bass. Both were excellent. There is an excellent vegetarian selection also. The place is expensive... More
