We celebrated our son and daughter-in-laws 20th wedding anniversary plus wife's birthday. We dined in the Wine Room. It is quite impressive with attention to detail. Our server was very nice and attentive. The drinks were generous and dinner was 5 star. The owner visited us along with the bartender who were gracious and funny. I am giving this restaurant...

lovely bread & the butter had smoked salt on it (I don't like unsalted butter) which tasted like bacon (but it wasn't). Be prepared to pay A LOT for dinner. $12 for off brand brut & $15 for red wine! Portions could be a bit bigger for the cost IMO.

Four of us had dinner at Mulvaney's B&L last night and it was a gastronomical delight! We sat outside on the patio. We tried multiple starters and main course and desserts and every bite was absolutely yummy. The service was perfect. Our host, Patrick Mulvaney and his wife Bobbin we charming. Can't wait to go back.

Our dinner at Mulvaney's was to be a birthday treat but the visit was ruined by a large loud raucous group next to us. We could not have a conversation, we could not hear our server, we left with ears ringing. The food was outstanding, service was excellent, the overall ambience was very fun. We asked the manager if it... More

We are sitting in the restaurant as I write this review. Beautiful quaint atmosphere with a tree covered canopy patio outside. We just had a pleasant conversation with the owner, she was very helpful and welcoming. The staff are very down to earth, friendly and efficient. The food is excellent.
