My husband and I ate at Winfield's Wed, Sept 4th and definitely did not find it a very good dining experience. The restaurant is small with such low ceilings, it's almost claustrophobic. It was not especially attractive and too many tables for the space, making conversation with someone who was only 18" away very difficult. It was so noisy, that everyone felt compelled to shout in order to be heard, making conversation almost impossible. And the room was too warm, even tho it was a cool night outside.
There was no beer on tap, only bottles and one in a can. My mixed drink was fine (lemon Drop Martini). My husband's pork chop was nice, but not extraordinary. I choose two appetizers for my meal. The Salad with tenderloin was tasty, tho there wasn't a choice in how my tenderloin would be cooked. I happen to like meat very rare, so the 'bordering on raw' meat was fine with me, but I can imagine many would have been unable to eat it. I also ordered the Lobster Mac and Cheese, as I had heard good reports about it. The best I can say about it was that it was really, really hot, even 15 minutes after it arrived. It did have lobster pieces and did have pasta, but no cheese that I could see or taste, just a greasy buttery look and taste. My best guess is that it was heated way too long, and perhaps at too high a temperature. A real disappointment!
On the positive side, the service was wonderful. Our water glasses were constantly being refilled, our waitress checked back on us a few times. I didn't return the mac and cheese, because by the time I was able to eat this very hot dish, I did not want to spend the extra time waiting for a replacement. We were anxious to leave the noise and warmth. This is pretty sad, as we are here for a relaxing vacation and want to have a leisurely, enjoyable meal with conversation. And it's nice to feel that it's been such a pleasant experience that we might want to linger for an after dinner drink. This had happened the previous night at the Mohegan Cafe (which, tho crowded, wasn't nearly as noisy). And Thursday night, we had a wonderful meal and dining experience at Harry's. I would not return to Winfield's and could not recommend it.
