“3 great meals in last 3 visits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

A nice quaint place to enjoy a romantic night , great meal with servers there to please. The rooms aren't too large and they leave space between the tables so its not real noisy. We haven't sat outside yet next time.

“wonderful building with a story”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This old house was built around 1820 and served as an underground stopover for slaves coming from the south. It has a bar and multiple dining rooms which are very attractive. We just had a short lunch there. The wait staff was very friendly and took us on a "tour" of the house, which included a cupola with just one table for a couple to have their own little hideaway and enjoy dinner with a view.

“Delicious, Beautiful, GF friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Unexpectedly accomodating- salmon on local greens with goat cheese fritters for me and burgers on GF buns for the kids with Fruit kabob sides. Gorgeous atmosphere and beautiful story behind the building. So happy to have found this absolute gem in the lakes region!

“A treat in a small town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Lavinia's is located in a beautiful home built in the early 19th century. The house itself is elegant but the food and atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. They advertise themselves as 'casual dining' and it is exactly that. Center Harbor NH is located on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee and Lavinia's overlooks the lake too.

“elegant lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We docked our boat and walked up to this restaurant. We had a nice table outside. We just had a burger and a turkey and brie wrap, but they were both very tasty. The fried pickles as a side were yummy, as were the onion rings.
