We stopped for a late lunch in the snow. We sat at the bar. The bartender was friendly and made us welcome. The lunch area was packed and a little noisy. Great food especially the tapas.

Went there for a Valentines dinner with hubby last Friday. The menu was dull and unappetizing. The fish special was Skate, ugh who wants to eat a ray fish? I went with a salad with salmon. Not very exciting. Husband went with short ribs and loved them. The service was even more disappointing. We had cocktails, I asked for Cosmopolitan... More

We've been before and had passably good food on multiple occasions. This time, it was crowded as ever so I assume others we're having good food and we just chose poorly. I'd suggest avoiding the fried artichokes that were soggy and completely flavorless except for the portions that were doused in an acrid lemon goop. The chicken with brown rice... More

The service and ambience could not have been nicer. The food was quite delicious with good proportions. I am a fan of restaurants who understand proportions are integral to the dining experience. We were contently well fed and enjoyed all the courses.

We just popped in for a drink, the food looked great so we ordered apps- delicious !! The service was great, all the bartenders helped each other so there was literally no wait for any questions and they were quick to advise on great beer choices. Our apps were wonderful and the vibe in the bar was lively and positive,

All expectations were exceeded. Dined in the Restaurant - Food was very good, Service was very good. We chose different menu items so we could share them. It was great to have such fresh vegetables in the dead of winter. Nothing dissapointed in the least. We were seated for an early dinner and did not realize how the place had... More

For special occasions, we dine at the Terrapin. It not only never disappoints but even exceeds expectations. There are two Terrapins in this converted former church, the restaurant and the bistro. We have only dined at the restaurant. In every aspect it is a fine dining experience, the food is some of the very best we have had anywhere and... More

I drove by this place all the time and had never eaten here. Finally went for a birthday dinner and was not disappointed. 6 of us ordered different things and everything was amazing. Winner of the night was Gnocchi with butter and truffles!
