“Oh SO perfect!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We went on a Sunday night. The restaurant was quiet. Our server was very young, but exceptionally knowledgeable. He tuned into the fact that this date night was way past due and went out of his way to ensure we had the most exceptional evening. The Chef also went out of their way to bring us little "extra's" and recommendations of pairings etc. This evening was quite perfect! We will be back!

“Kitchy. Nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very good food. Painters Hall is one of those "hidden gems" that every downtown seems to have.
They often present specials for holidays like a couples Valentines dinner, or the Barrielicious event. All the meals are prepared just for you.

Best service in town.
Classic cuisine, not many choices but all great.
Wine list a little weak for the quality of the food
