Though I grew up only a mile from Scarborough Fair, this was my first time dining here - for Thanksgiving dinner - in the 33 years the restaurant has been open. The building architecture is unusual and alcoves are nice. But bring a sweater as the opening door and windows make them cold. The rest of the restaurant is nice... More

My husband and I came here for dinner for my birthday. The restaurant has a somewhat rustic atmosphere and the layout of the restaurant is very unique with dining alcoves going up the stairs. I called two weeks in advance to reserve an alcove which I highly recommend doing as you feel like you have your own private dining area... More

You would hardly notice this place if you were driving by. However, we came for our uncles 80th birthday. They organized a Sunday Brunch. Everything was done very nicely. The decor was very rustic. I would love to come back for dinner.

Scarborough Fair is our favorite restaurant!. The service is fantastic, the food is amazing and the experience is a must for those who have not visited this gem of a restaurant! My husband ordered the scallops for his entree, which is a given for him. He said he's never had them better at any other restaurant. I ordered the salmon,... More

As you enter this restaurant there are stairs going up on either side with tables for diners on ascending levels so that, when seated, you feel as if you are in your own little alcove and not crowded next to the other diners. There is an area for larger groups and an octagon room for private parties also. Menu choices... More

Just love the atmosphere at the restaurant. It was our 49th anniversary and they prepared a quaint side table full of little valentines and, as an added treat, gave us our dessert free. Overall the meal we had was very good-to-excellent. My wife started with the escargot in a puff pastry that she said was divine. I started with the... More

Nice private spaces for people to have dinner. The food was very good and priced accordingly. We had a great time even after the lights went out due to a car crash down the road. It took out the electric pole servicing the street. Very romantic candle lighted dinner.

We just had a wonderful dinner there. Our server, Rob, was fantastic. He was ever-present but not hovering. First server in my life to ask before he brought the check. I know ordering a house salad is boring, but this one was just perfect, fresh lettuce, and properly dressed ( I like to taste the veggies as well as the... More

Made a reservation a week in advance for one of their coveted alcove tables only to be seated right next to the front door! I may have well ate in the parking lot. With the prices they charge they should forgo seating people right next to the door. It's very tacky. Makes you feel like you never even enter the... More

Beautiful place, we were seated immediately in a alcove table & had a nice view. Our server Dan was very prompt . Must try the spanakopita , very good. Filet mignon was very tender. Shrimp Athenia was good. Portions good size Mike (owner) gave us a tour & told us the history of the restaurant. I was surprised w/ a... More
