They had many gluten-free, vegetarian and locally sourced options and a nice wine list. It was very quiet mid-week with only a few diners. Staff was attentive and friendly.

I had lunch as part of a day package at the spa. You wee able to choose an appetizer, an entree and a dessert as part of the package. The lobster roll truly was one of the best I have ever had. I had to use my ork to eat some of the lobster off in order to pick it... More

we had an early dinner before a concert at MGM grand. The food choices were good; they list all the fat and caloric content so it makes you think about what you are eating. It was quiet, the service was excellent and food pretty good but not outstanding. THere was a wedding in the ballroom next door but noise wasn't... More

My husband and I, having an unexpected overnight stay in the Norwich area, asked a couple of people where we should go for dinner and were told "the restaurant at the Norwich Inn and Spa." I read the dinner menu online, and made Friday reservations for 8 PM, with great expectations. Unfortunately, the only thing "great" about our dinner was... More

The hostess had us wait a solid 7 minutes (yes, I timed it) while she took a complex, multi-person room service order before we were seated. The restaurant boasts a buffet, but the tables do not allow a clear walking path from the back room to the food, so it's a difficult zig-zag balancing act to your table. Food was... More

We ate here while staying at the adjacent inn. We had a 6:30 reservation and were promptly seated. The restaurant itself is quite elegant and somewhat Victorian. After being seated, we were brought two rolls and the menus. We perused the menus and decided on a bottle of wine. Then we waited...and waited. I am not impatient by any means-if... More

Average, but too rich food. Tofu dish very disappointing. Terrible, obnoxious waiter, overly "friendly", intrusive into our conversations.

Have had breakfast lunch and dinner here several times. Food and drinks were delicious. Service was excellent. The shrimp cocktail with lemongrass was outrageous and the melon balls drink with the girls after our spa services were so darn good YUMMY!
