The atmosphere is dim and noisy. The food, while good, was very overpriced, as are there drinks. The service was mediocre, at best. The waitress was more concerned with brown nosing than actually serving our table. All in all, for what the price is, go to The Guild Steakhouse. More selection, better food, better drinks and better service than here.

Good foodie food....hand cut fries served with yummy truffle oil infused dipping sauce. Everything was tasty. Pan seared scallops served with a lobster and shrimp risotto topped with a glazed arugula was a generous portion and delicious! The restaurant location and decor are not as nice as the food and I think there may be a ventilation problem because my... More

Great Italian food and wines are very good. Have wine specials at the bar only. The price is fair and usually can get a table without a long wait.

We came here for Restaurant Week and our experience, contrary to others', was excellent, from the crab cake and duck tacos for appetizers, to the trout and salmon entrees, sweet desserts and even the lemon basil soda. Service was cheery and efficient, and if there was one thing I didn't like, I thought our clothes took on the smells of... More

Nice restaurant, tucked back away from busy street. I wasn't wild about the décor, kind of dark. And it was loud and hot. That particular day the ventilation system must not have been working because it was smoky. Food was good, with limited menu items.

We dined at the Wooden Spoon with friends. The food was great, but at the time, they charged extra for their "home made bread". Our waitress did not seem to like her job. When we were served butter it was flavored with maple syrup-yuk. Then when asked to give us plain butter, she said something like well this is Vermont... More

Great food. Friendly staff. A tad pricy but the food is very very good. The menu is very limited but the items on the menu represent a wide variety (seafood, tapas, etc.). Would highly recommend it for a date night before the movies.

The food was good and creative. The atmosphere was nice. It was close to our hotel and the local Higher Ground concert venue. The price was fair. Not cheap but not a rip-off either. The service was good and helpful but maybe lacked a bit of warmth. That being said, they were nice enough to some places around when we... More

We dine out a lot and tried the Wooden Spoon Bistro because of a Deal Chicken deal. Our first impression is that this is a bar that serves food. It was pretty noisy on a Wednesday night. We were put in a small booth by the door and that location was subjected to wind blasts whenever folks came in the... More

My wife and another couple dined here last night. Service was good and the atmosphere was, well.... bistro. Other reviewers complained about lack of choice, but IMHO, you cannot do 100 things well. I always prefer a restaurant that has fewer choices because I know they they will be focused. If I want choice, I'll go to Applebees. Instead of... More
