Description: Amy's creative approach to combining ingredients results in an intriguing and delicious menu. Enjoy a memorable fine dining experience while relaxing in our rustic cobblestone walled restaurant and greenhouse garden room. Our broad wine list and extensive selection of spirits will provide just the right accompaniment for your meal. And as a reward for eating all your veggies, you should treat yourself to a delicious homemade dessert.

We actually dined upstairs at the 'Other Woman', the tavern above the Perfect Wife which is owned and operated by the same people. The French Dip sandwich was one of the best sandwiches I ever had and the Howling Wolf (vegetarian dish) was so good that I could see myself going back just for that (I rarely find vegetarian dishes...

The food here was just about alright although we thought the vegetables a little too raw for our taste. What we didn't like at all was the noise! Too much clatter from the TV and too many people trying to make themselves heard above the racket. The atmosphere may have suited young people but we oldies found it a bit... More

In Manchester it may be necessary to make reservations depending on the season. This is one restaurant you can make reservations via Open Table which we found helpful. I had a Sesame Tuna with Asian Vegetables and it was perfect. My husband's dish was also very good. The atmosphere in the "restaurant" (not to be confused with the Tavern) was... More

Ok so there are 2 places to eat. There is a downstairs more upscale restaurant and then the tavern side where we are that was more casual and comfort food. We started out with a bowl of squash soup that was awesome and got some of the eggplant fries which were really good. I got the perfect wife sliders which... More

Menu offers a wide range of choices, perfectly prepared and nicely presented entrees, lovely atmosphere and a very friendly and helpful wait staff. Family-friendly environment. The evening that we dined there, the clientele included a number of families with remarkably well-behaved youngsters. Very enjoyable.

We had dinner at the "other woman", which is the "tavern" part of the restaurant. it was ok - nothing to write home about. Little things - like bringing water, or coming by to check on us takes away one star. The food was ok - my wife had the swordfish, and I had the burger. But for the price,... More

The Tavern menu ( the other women is the tavern part upstairs on the parking lot level of the Perfect Wife) is more to our liking - casual yet upscale too and priced reasonably. We had a great time and our waiter - Tanner was gracious and understanding of we older folks . We surely put him to the test... More
