We recently had dinner in the more casual seating area in the bar. My husband's steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. I chose one of the specials, and our server (who obviously was still learning the menu) did not describe it very well. It arrived as something pretty different (ingredients were accurate - assembly was not). I was a little... More

We ere invited to a rehearsal dinner here. The service was impeccable from start to finish. Drinks were served quickly and staff was extremely attentive. The room was elegant and warm, although a bit noisy when all were seated. The food was carefully served without rushing. Obviously this place is used to these kinds of events and we would go... More

We love to go to RJ Julia's and often eat lunch at Allegra after we've browsed the bookstore and the shops. Have sampled the shrimp scampi, sole francese, various frittatas, all of which have been delicious. Servers are always pleasant and knowledgable. You can't go wrong here!

My wife and I stayed at the Inn, which is technically attached but in same building, for a couple of nights. We dined at the restaurant for both evenings and the experience was very enjoyable. Food by Chef Silvio was excellent and the selection was great. Staff was courteous. Room was clean and comfortable.

You are first greeted on the outside with beautiful flowers which invites you in. Once inside you are greeted by smiling and courteous staff. Service very prompt and food is well prepared and full of flavor. There are always specials and many dinners to choose from the menu. Great wine list as well as a fully stocked bar. Rooms can...

Cozy semi casual atmosphere in the bar/lounge for lunch. If you are contemplating getting a chicken dish when you can have that home get it as they have the most delicious moist buttery chicken I have ever had! Girlfriend loved the shrimp scampi. Martinis are expensive… $10 but made correctly as ordered Due to the fact that three other women... More

My husband and I have been to the Café many times. The food and service is always excellent. We've celebrated our anniversary there many times and the staff always makes it special for us and has even offered complimentary champagne.

We were invited back for a reception after an internment at the cemetery in the pouring rain. We arrived at 10:55AM and the doors were locked and all were left standing in the rain and freezing cold. We were a group of about 35. We could see people inside but they did not acknowledge us. How heartless could they be!... More
