Great food - Dated interior

I have been to Cygnet many times over the years. The food quality is fantastic and the presentation is equally as good. They have seasonal menu changes which never seem to fall flat. Their chef is truly gifted and worthy of praise. The waitstaff have always been friendly & knowledgeable about... read more

We have been to Cygnet a number of time over the years, and find that it has been overall a very good place. However, recently it seem the service quality had dropped off. We hadn't been in about 18 months, and decided to go back for a celebration. We got a table on a banquette and the passage between tables... More

This charming and posh restaurant in Beverly Farms is decorated with panache but still retains a cozy warm atmosphere. The food is prepared to the highest of standards with the menu changing with the seasons. Cygnets never disappoints; I feel extremely comfortable recommending it to friends as a choice to consider when we are dining out. I always get great... More

I generally love Cygnet, especially in winter when it feels like a cozy get away. The dining area, while not large, allows privacy but also intimate seating with upholstered booths. We went first week of February after the latest onslaught of snow for a night out with friends. We all selected an array of options and drinks. We were greeted... More

Cygney never fails to deliver a charming quiet upscale tavern atmosphere. Food is alway solid, cocktails and wine list as well. Nice and cozy in the winter and nice w some windows open in the summer. We love sitting at the bar for a quick bite.

wide variety of menu items from beef to seafood to vegan. I had the pumpkin bread pudding with molasses sauce and whipped cream as my entree and the waitress didn't bat an eye. all 7 of us were tremendously leased. Can't imagine going anywhere else in the area for special occasions.

We took our daughter here for dinner during parents' weekend at Endicott College. The Cygnet has an absolutely charming atmosphere. It is classic old New England with warm wood, beautiful fabrics, and soft lighting. While not large, the menu offered several choices that appealed to each of us. Some of the highlights from our meal.....butternut squash soup, pear walnut and... More

In Beverly Farms center, Cygnet is consistently great. Dollar oysters weeknights 4-6 are a big draw, outdoor terrace seating in the summer, local parking isn't bad. I tend to order combinations of appetizers there that have included beef tenderloin tataki, roasted figs with blue cheese and balsamic honey dressing, pepper crusted tuna sashimi, sometimes gazpacho, Caprese tomato salad with mozzarella,...

We had lunch in the cozy courtyard surrounded by plants, flowers and art on the walls. The quiche of the day was excellent, as was the pasta with chicken livers, bacon and balsamic vinegar. Not cheap at $12-13 each, but worth it. The interior is elegant and wood-paneled with an impressive bar.
