Good food, nice view

Situated on the Town Green, Whitfield's has a nice feel and provided a good meal. We went for lunch and while the menu isn't deep with a large number of choices, there is enough to please most palettes.

When we entered the restaurant, we had no reservation. The hostess grimaced visibly, and indicated that there might be an issue. The place was empty and half empty when we left. The food was simply okay, with a unexceptional Tuscan bean soup, steaks that were not cooked to order, cheesecake that was shapeless, and generally food that was not exceptional... More

Four of us had lunch at this establishment and quite enjoyed the meal and service with one exception. My fries were brown and greasy like they had been sitting for a while and put back into the fryer to warm them up. Not right for an establishment charging these prices for lunch. I noticed that others at other tables having... More

A birthday lunch that started with cocktails made to order. Then we waited quite a while before our server returned. Maybe they were short staffed? Ordered apps- shared the dumplings (one or two weren't cooked thoroughly) and the calamari which was fantastic. Our main dishes arrived quickly (almost too quickly). My sister's lamb burger was excellent but not cooked in... More

Love this restaurant. My husband and I come here for special date nights and anniversaries. The atmosphere is very nice. I love the menu and it always changes with fresh and inspiring additions. GreAt location too. The Guilford green us beautiful and it's fun to stroll around afterwards.

We have eaten at Whitfield's many times. This restaurant is very popular with the locals. It is reliable for a good, not great meal. We ate outside on the back patio. Very pleasant overlooking the art gallery and mobile sculptures in back. Our food was good. We had truffle fries (good but room temperature.). Thai Calamari very good ( adequate... More

Traveling with friends we decided to have lunch at Whitfield's on Guilford Green. We were greeted nicely when we walked in and quickly seated. I ordered Kale Salad with Salmon that was excellent. One of my friends had a Thai Salad with shrimp which she loved and the other had a vegetable and gouda panini which she enjoyed. We highly... More

Nice place, small, but cozy. Fish dishes were good, wait staff was excellent and very attentive. Try the lobster risotto.

Whitfield's is a very pleasant place for a quiet lunch by the historic Guilford Green. The quiche was to die for, priced at the higher end of mid range. All in all a pleasant experience...we will go back again.

Visited Whitfield's on Saturday evening with my wife and daughter. While we were seated promptly, it took 30 minutes before our waiter took our drink orders and this was after I got the cocktail/wine list myself from the bar. Our waiter kept apologizing ("sorry for the wait", "thank you for your patience") the entire evening but the poor guy had... More
