The atmosphere was of a very small restaurant that packs the people in. Reminds me of a hole in the wall in NY, but I kind of like that. Not a lot of room when you are waiting, but you do not feel too crowded at dinner. Service was slow, especially for the drink orders. Food was reasonabley priced (mid... More

Went early, 5 pm as I had missed lunch. We had a Groupon coupon, $80, and wanted to use it. Nice view of Guilford Green. We enjoyed watching the dog walkers. Overall, location on Guilford Green has much to recommend it. I ordered filet mignon and was not impressed. I have had better at numerous clubs and Davenports in New... More

We have lived in the area for a long time and never been in this restaurant...I got a Groupon, so we went! We were not disappointed at all. The atmosphere is quiet and lovely. Now, we did go on a Wednesday evening fairly early (6:00ish), but it was a calm and lovely place! The tables are very, very close together.... More

We have dined here numerous times and never once have we been disappointed. I would recommend you make reservations as the restaurant has quite a steady clientel . For not being a steak house we always are amazed what a super job they do on their filet mignon, it beat out prime cuts in some of those high end steak... More

Atmospher are ok but the value for the dinner was not there. Been there several times and never come away feeling like we had a great meal at a reasonable price. We eat out three times per week.

We wanted a lighter dinner, so we asked our server about the burgers and her response was not what we were expecting. She stated not many people ordered burgers for dinner. Well then what did the table next to us have, yes burgers. Not impressed with the burger lacked flavor. Will not be going back anytime soon.

Last night my husband and I decided to get a sitter and take a much needed night to ourselves. We headed to Whitfield's since we had heard the food was good. We arrived early, 5:30 so it wasn't too crowded-although by the time we left at 6:30 they were packed in like sardines(fire hazard?) We had to wait to be... More

Every couple months or so we keep on returning to this restaurant. The food and the service is always great. Probably the best restaurant in Guilford.

Went there the other night as I purchased a Living Social voucher in order to take my mother and father who live in the area. The hostess was very nice and seated us promptly as we came right at opening. Our waitress took a few minutes to get to us, which initially ticked me off, but Michelle ended up being... More

We love Whitfield's. Before we moved to Guilford 12 years ago we had a lunch there after a morning of looking at several houses. The lunch was spent sitting by the front window looking at the glorious Guilford Green and by the time we left we knew we were going to move to Guilford. The restaurant has gone through a... More
