This restaurant is very popular and has a loyal following. The food is creatively prepared and tasty. There is an extensive wine list. The atmosphere is good for couples and singles.

Visited DeWolf restaurant this weekend for drinks and dessert. We were very disappointed to say the least. Out of 3 desserts, only one was edible even after sending one back twice! This used to be a great restaurant. What happened? I won't go back any time soon.

The much touted prix fix menu that day was uninspired, so we reverted to the regular menu. The posted menu outside did not match with the menu offered once we were seated.The wine we initially ordered from the wine... More

While we were in Bristol, RI we decided to stop for dinner at the DeWolf Tavern. It is in a restored stone warehouse. The menu looked good and had a decent variety of entrees and lighter dishes. My husband wanted to try the Naan Pizza and I got the Hake stuffed with crab and baked in a banana leaf. The... More
