Great menu

Tasty treat await the patron as you will find numerous items to either quench your thirst or feed your hunger. The staff is humorous and attentive. The atmosphere is pleasing and relaxing, and that's the point. Come in relax and enjoy.

The first time I went was in the summer and the seasonal menu was delicious. However the next time I went, it was the winter menu, and I was very disappointed! I thought the menu was very limited and overpriced for the small servings.

Took my husband to The Fireplace for father's day. We used Open Table for a reservation, and the hostess called to confirm in the afternoon. We arrive on time, and I got a bad feeling right away. You enter through the bar/fireplace area, yet the host station is up a small flight of stairs. It is hard to know what... More

Full disclosure: My wife and I went to this restaurant because my son works there. He wasn't working that night and went with us. Trust me, I would have gotten a seat at the bar anyway. I expected a nice place with good food because my son wouldn't work there if it didn't offer quality, and this is a strip... More

Not a bad place in Washington Square. Some interesting cocktails, okay beer list. Seem to focus on local food, liquor, and beer which is cool. We had fries and the chip basket. Chop basket was really good with kale chips, sweet potato, and regular potato chips.

Interesting menu. Food well prepared. Service is always first rate. They were on the verge of selling to a New Haven Pizza chain but backed out. Maybe looking for a better deal. Knowing that they came close to selling makes one wonder how long they will be around for. If they go it will be a loss for Washington Square... More

Brought some out of town friends to this local gem and no one was disappointed. The menu is great with plenty of tempting options covering everything from healthy eats to comfort food. I ordered the cod on a bed of spinach and it was delicious. Everyone else at the table was happy with their meal. The waiter was very engaging... More

A friend of ours invited us here for brunch as a highly recommended locale. When we got there, they at first acted as though they had not gotten our reservation. Our friend had made it: she had tried and tried to call on the phone, but kept getting cut off. She then used the Open Table online booking service. The... More
