Went here for lunch to celebrate our anniversary. Luncheon menu is diverse, we stated with a peach salad, my wife had a lamb burger, while I had the curried chicken sandwich. Both were tasty and nicely complimented by a glass of wine. Dessert was great, do not miss the rice pudding with the peppercorn ice cream The interior of the... More

The story behind this site is amazing. The owner converted a Roman Catholic church in a restaurant and Inn. There are many tongue in cheek references in the layout of the establishment (the back of the bar used to me confessionals, for instance) The building has begun to show it's signs of wear and the same with the staff. Turn-over... More

We only eat here a few times a year as it is pricey but it is also a very fun yet elegant place to dine. Brunch is terrific and more affordable than dinner. Beautiful renovation from the church it once was. First class all the way!

Last night we found this place on Tripadvisor and gave it a try. What a find. The sword on a panzanella salad was unusual, wonderful, delightful and original. Every element was perfect in preparation, presentation and taste. Perfect. One of us had the daily fish special on a bed of cooked kale and a corn meal like layer. Three wonderful... More

Each of the past 5 years, I've typically eaten at the Belfry approx. 4 times- always with a reservation and usually hosting guests/ family. The food is always good. Previously I found the atmosphere a bit stuffy and the owner's reception luke warm to chilly, but the food made it worth it . Fast forward to this past month- Same... More

A very different menu. Unfortunately I can't go back, unless I check the menu again.maybe I'm not fancy enough haha. I had tried once couple years ago and I had the same feeling. Sorry

Highly recommended for the excellent food & drink selections, great service, and live piano music on Fridays and Saturdays. The architecture and decor of the venue is lovely as well. The swordfish was perfectly cooked (in my experience, it's very rare to find a place that can get it right), and the duck bolognese was delicious. The cocktail menu had... More

The interior is unique. Hard to stop staring. The outdoor seating is designed to match the interior theme; full of flowers and details. Menu options are prepared with a modern twist. Prices are typical of vacation spots.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while searching for a parking place. Well restored old Catholic church (so we were told). Not at all crowded. Nice patio for outdoor dining. Food was really good too. Great wait staff- friendly and informative.
