Excellent! They have a Tandoor oven.

Wonderful seafood with an influence of India. The grits had a lovely pop of mustard seed and exquisite cheese. The salmon was the best I've ever eaten-and I've eaten a lot. Subtle flavors, lovely execution. The only downside was the service could have been a wee bit better.

Great ambiance, neat decor, white tablecloth, a perfect setting for a perfect meal. The dishes have an Indian touch, but yet it's not an Indian restaurant. Appears to be American fare, with light Indian spices. I highly recommend the Tandoori pork chop, which is served with spiced cauliflower.Companion had steak sandwich was on Naan bread. Great cocktails to go with... More

We sat outside, overlooking the water. Very pleasant staff. We had appetizers and drinks, and enjoyed both, especially the little flatbread pizza with smoked salmon and cream cheese.. Interesting old building in an old town, nicely refurbished.

unpretentious surrounding right near the harbor belies great attention to quality in food and service. Lunch there was a thoroughly pleasant experience

This is a beautiful place, seating inside and outside for lunch and dinner. The food and service are superb but it comes at a price. I had a lunch there last week that was pretty reasonable, especially sitting on a beautiful patio overlooking the ocean. My mother and I went there for dinner last month and had also a wonderful...

We arrived in Bristol on a Saturday night and needed a restaurant with bar seating so we wouldn’t have to wait all night. The DeWolf was recommended to us. The wait was only 30 to 40 minutes but we decided to eat at a bar table anyway. The first table was right by the door between inside and outside and... More

I love the stone walled atmosphere here. It's very cozy, which is a nice contrast to many beachside restaurants that are more breezy. This is a true tavern. I love the indian fusion going on (also a rarity). Must have: the cornbread brussels sprouts, and the cauliflower appetizer.

Walked in on a Saturday night without a reservation and was greeted by the kindest young man;Andrew. He was explaining directions on the phone patiently to a patron who was late for their reservation. A young woman, appeared to be the manager, gently touched his shoulder and seamlessly inquired about our visit. Jennifer immediately sat us at the bar in... More

Absolutely delicious. Nice fusion of seafood Indian cuisine. Loved the cumin spiced cauliflower. Even better... The chickpea flour breaded shrimp appetizer. We wandered in not knowing what to expect- very pleasantly surprised.

When we moved to Rhode Island 10 years ago, DeWolf was our favorite restaurant. We used to go there all the time. It had been a number of years since we had eaten there and thought it would be a fun place to spend our anniversary but turns out we were wrong. We just had the worst dinner we have... More
