I've only eaten there once and I see lots of people liked it, but I didn't. I had clam chowder that the waiter was really pushing. It was watery, much too thin. Restroom is kinda creepy.

Both my wife and I loved the food and service. This is a very small restaurant so make a reservation. Many people visiting on this Columbus Day were turned away or couldn't get a table until 8:00 pm. My wife said the steak she had was the best she had in a long time. The pork tenderloin I had was... More

Just when the leaf peepers had filled every chair in the waiting area of the Red Lion Inn, and the wait for lunch was at least 1 1/2 hours, we escaped the crowd and found a hidden gem "Once Upon a Table. Although our waiter had worked at Alice's Restaurant he was funny and professional. The food at lunch is... More

My wifte thought the name of this place was interesting, so we stopped for lunch. While perusing the menu, the couple next to us raved about the Cuban sandwich, so I agreed to try it. It was very good, and we proceeded to talk about other restaurants with them giving us tips for Philadelphia.

Recommended by friends and we owe then a thank you! Small space (make a reservation) but not cramped. Laid back, yet welcoming greeting and service. Menu is limited but not limiting, all dietary prefs are accounted for. Our wine was very fine, our food was prepared with care and absolutely delicious, everything is fresh & seasonal. Save room, don't pass... More

A tiny restaurant that seats 25/30 people inside and 16+/- outside (weather permitting). Prompt, courteous staff seated us & took our orders. The clam chowder was full of clams & bacon enhanced the flavor. The crab cakes were delicious as was the salad that joined it. The Chatham chix salad was so very good and the salad yummy. The portions... More

It was a Sunday night and they kept turning people away - so glad I called ahead. When I called, I was given instructions on how to find the small restaurant tucked into a pedestrian alley next to Yankee Candle on Main Street. The intimate dining room seats about 30. One group had a small child and a highchair was... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinner tonight. He had the crab cakes and I had the roasted duck. Everything was delicious and the waitress was excellent.

This restaurant was probably one of the best little hidden surprises that we have encountered in awhile. We were out in Western MA, and started to get hungry. This place was suggested to us by one of the locals. It is right in the center of town, which is absolutely adorable. We had to wait probably 15 minutes for a... More
