Food was delicious, server was delightful. It was off season, so we had no problem getting a table. Had a lovely conversation with the server.

This restaurant has received high marks over the years, and we have wanted to try it for some time. Our visit at 5:30 on a blustery Sunday in late March was a disappointment. It may be that the restaurant is counting on its previous very high rating. My half duck was good but not great; somewhat tough, the sauce sparse,... More

We dined at Once Upon a Table for brunch. The menu selections were interesting and tasty, but a few more choices would have been nice. I would prefer some more plain items, though I enjoyed my quiche. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was pleasant.

On a chilly evening, on a snow covered early spring day we had a delightful early supper in the sunny porch-like dining room at Once Upon A Table. Our waitress was friendly and helpful, the menu was full of tempting choices and our meal was great. Escargot pie was a light and tasty treat for an appetizer. Caesar salads satisfied... More

Good local produce used for dinner. Small wine list and not many choices for dinner. We went in Feb and it was cold in the small dining room.

This restaurant is located in the mews (a pedestrian alley), just off Main St., not far from the Red Lion Inn. There are wooden tabletops over cranberry cloth tablecloths & cloth napkins. It's an intimate space as there are only 11 tables. The lunch menu looked promising. My friend & I decided to order 2 different lunch entrees & split... More

We happened upon this great little eatery on a recent visit. We were seated in a wonderfully sunny corner. I had the turkey sandwich with cranberry aioli on sourdough. Fresh sliced turkey and the most wonderful bread perfectly toasted. My boyfriend had the chicken gorgonzola on a focaccia roll and said it was wonderful. Perfect serving size for a lunch.
