Food was delicious. Nice view from the restaurant

I've eaten there twice. If you can get a window seat, there is a beautiful view of the water in the distance. The food was good and the variety was sufficient. A little pricey but you would expect it by just looking at the place. Service was good. White cloth vs. red checked vinyl sort of tells the... read more

We visited in the off season and were seated right away for breakfast right in front of the window with the most amazing view. As we were the only people in the restaurant at breakfast time we felt as if the chef was cooking just for us. The coffee was delicious, my omelet was perfect and could have fed two... More

A group of us went for New Years Day brunch. It was outstanding! There was some confusion about price, the Manager promptly took care of it and we had an awesome experience.

Staying here at the resort is truly relaxing. The food was so awesome, we never had to leave to get a meal somewhere else. As a matter-of-fact, I even had some entrees twice just because I won't be able to come back till next year. We invited friends from Stonington (which is full of good restaurants), and the view at...

Delightful vistas with very pleasant food white bean soup and salad and a lovely angel hair pasta, but it's the location that wins the day. Plenty to chose from on the menu both in the restaurant and the Bistro. Worth a visit.

We were a party of 4 on a Tuesday evening in the off season, So they weren't very busy. The filet mignon was delicious and cooked perfectly, the crab cakes were delicious as well. Our server was pleasant and tended to all our request. The food is a bit pricey, but was cooked, served and presented perfectly in a beautiful... More

Not quite sure how this got voted as the best brunch in the state, but maybe the voters were fooled by the scenery. The spot is beautiful and the view is gorgeous. The food was average Sunday brunch fare, nothing great. Eggs Benedict, omelet and carving stations, bacon, sausage, toast, etc. The lunch type fare was NOT very good. When... More

We went for our anniversary in October 2015. The wait staff was excellent. The food was expensive and of poor quality. The $ 36 veal chop was meant to be medium rare and was medium well. The 2nd entre was veal with mushrooms and was so salty I swear it had anchovies. I didnt even take the leftovers home. The... More
