Anniversary dinner

My husband and I went to Alfreds Victorian for our anniversary. The restaurant is an old Victorian style house, with a lifelong resident, so the story goes. The food was good but the portion, mind you, seemed small, probably because it is considered fine dining and proportioned to standard, unlike... read more

The warm greeting by Robin made our visit feel like we were visiting a very good friend. Outstanding food with excellent service. The atmosphere is charming and old world feeling enhances the wonderful flavors of the pasta dishes, and the excellent salmon dinner.

Great food but expect to pay a little more as it is fine dining. Great place to celebrate those special occasions. Atmosphere is cozy, wine selection is excellent and food is beyond what we expected. Fresh herbs are used in all of the choices we made. Very flavorful menu selections and save room for the desserts or at least share... More

We have had the opportunity to dine in restaurants throughout the nation and the world. Alfred's Victorian is one of those memorable restaurants that you will recall at some point and remember the delightful meal you had in a perfect environment. The menu is a mix of styles, not Italian and yet, not American ... enough to keep you interested.... More

Beautiful old Home but cold in more ways than one! I had a table side salad and it had a huge hair, the manager gave the server the works and it clearly was not her hair. My husband had a steak that was to be medium it was rare, and I had Alfredo that was so tough and had little... More

We've gone to Alfred's for at least 10+ years, but hadn't been there for a number of years. I was expecting a menu with some classics & many new items. Not so much. It was mostly the same appetizers, same entrees & the exact same desserts. I got the surf & turf, which was the special. Our robotic server didn't... More

Awesome atmosphere, great food, great hosts. Steak Diane is wonderful as where the specials. The owner gave a brief history of the building. Apparently it is haunted!

What a great experience we had. Attentive waitress, delicious soups and appetizers, and what atmosphere! The Steak Diane was delicious and so tender. The ony minor complaint is my husband and our friend ordered theirs medium rare and it was overcoioked but still tasty and moist. But OMG the Cherries Jubilee was truly a wonderful end to a grat meal!... More

4 couples went for a quiet meal and conversation. Over the phone, the reservationists said we'd have a private room with an oval table. We were thrilled as we all wanted to be able to converse with each other about some sensitive issues. Upon arrival, we were seated in a room with others who were dining. And seated at a... More
