Good experience

Food was very good. Service was excellent. Nice setting overlooking the Farmington river. Could use some sprucing up . Napkins stuffed in doorways to keep out drafts as an example.

While we were visiting friends in the West Hartford area, they took us to Apricots. They had been there before, but it was some time ago (years). We had reservations, but they weren't necessary as the restaurant was virtually empty except for the bar. That should have been the first indication that something was amiss. The men ordered rack of... More

Started off fine, but then....We have eaten many times at Apricots, great setting, decent food until this weekend. What a disaster. Starting with the appetizers, chopped salad fine, but clam chowder cold and flavorless. Then total chaos. 70 percent of the entrees came out cold, not warm but cold. Risotto was mush, patted down on the plate with a spatula.... More

One of the best (if not the best) restaurants in the Farmington area. It is located on the Farmington River and during the summer months has outside dining with a fabulous view of the river. Staff is always very pleasant and accommodating and the food is exceptionally good – never disappointed!

We brought a friend in from CA. for dinner, and as usual sat in the pub/bar area. We still like the place but noticed that some things seem to be looked over. The menu is perfect, a good variety and priced favorably. Things that I think need to be looked at are the flatware needs to be upgraded, it is... More

Could not have asked for better ambiance for a luncheon next to the Farmington River. Leisurely lunch with family, reasonably priced wine by the glass. My aunts shared the chicken salad sandwich, they enjoyed it and there was not a split plate fee which was nice. The fries were flavorful. I had the spinach salad, strawberry, walnut, goat cheese salad.... More

Located on a river, this was a lovely place to have an ourdoor lunch on a perfect and sunny day. I had a Black Angus burger with cheddar cheese and sweet potato fries. This burger should be included in the book a friend suggested I write: HAMBURGERS I HAVE KNOWN AND LOVED. I like my burgers rare and that's what... More

Surprisingly poor service. Charming location by the river but a bit run down. We mentioned that it was a special occasion when making the reservation but there was no indication that they had understood the importance of that evening for the two of us. We were seated at a table for four. The wine service was unsophisticated. Low energy wait... More
