I had heard so many great things about Huntley Tavern that I was so looking forward to it. It's a charming building, but w/ zero views - you face a car wash. It was nice that they had valet parking, but really not needed since the parking lot is right there with plenty of spaces and it's just as easy to walk w/o having to wait for a valet to get your car.
Staff was friendly and we were seated right away since we had reservations and it was a fairly early seating time for a Friday nite - 6:30 PM.
Everything on menu is ala carte which I hate as I feel restaurants do that to jack up the prices. We ordered the scallop dish and the brick oven pizza. The scallops arrived and there were literally 4 medium to small sized scallops with 2 tablespoons of cous cous nothing else came w/ the dish. We ended up ordering a side of mashed potatoes. The scallop dish was $28 and the mash potatoes another $8. The food was tasty, but not amazing and for $36 a plate I expect more. My husband ordered the brick oven pizza - it was too chewy for my taste and again the dish was overpriced.
Staff was lovely but they have too much staff and no one really managing your table. We had one person take our drink order, another brought us bread, another took our dishes away, another who brought the food, but of course when my husbands soup was brought it it came w/o a spoon. I had to flag down a Manager just to get a spoon for him as no one was watching the floor. It seems that once someone did their one task for you they left the area. I prefer to have one person overseeing my order and my need's during my visit.
They do have a very long list of wines, but they are sorely lacking in the fancy drink section. I ordered a glass of red wine - it was $13 for a glass and when my glass came it was filled to maybe 30% - for the $13 I felt they should have been more generous w/ the wine. My husband chose a fancy cocktail out of an extremely limited choice offering - his drink was also $13.
Overall, this place was a real disappointment and it will be along time before I'll go back - it's just too darn pricey for what your getting and the prices don't seem to align w/ the quality nor the service.
