Fantastic from beginning to end. Dined back to back evenings and the food was excellent. Service was old school. This place is like going back in time. Drinks were great and wine list is good as well. Had not been here in years and can't wait to return.

This was a unique experience and is a must-go recommendation. The food is superb and I cannot recall a better meal if pasta is your desire. The menu is large with plenty of veal dishes, but I had a superb fish dish of haddock, Italian salad, and tiramisu. Food: excellent, 5/5. Service: superior in all respects, 5/5. Atmosphere: Beautiful, charming,... More

Beautiful inn. Combination of Cheers, where everybody knows your name, and The Sopranos, due to the food and atmosphere. Highly recommended. I had the special veal breast and it was unusual and very rich broth.

Kind of a combination of "old skool" and "today"--the physical place, the food and the service/waiters. Clearly a "good 'ol guys" place. Seems like most of the customers know the service staff well--homey for sure. The food is better than "good enough" but not Pete Lorenzo's #2. Similar in some ways but less elaborate. Good though and worth repeating. Given... More

I have been going to The Homestead for more than 25 years, and the food is consistently good. The tender steaks, traditionally hang off both sides of your plate, and are tender, sweet and done to perfection. There are no menus, and you server will tell you what "I have tonight." The dining room is old, small, and has not... More

There is something comforting and reassuring about a restaurant willing and able to pull the curtain aside. There is no man with flashing flames or booming PA systems here. There is good food the way Dr. Leoni had it coming home to Mrs. Leoni. While not fancy the fair here is just the way it should be... yes, it can... More

I hadn't been there in a while, but met friends there a few weeks ago and loved it. Looking forward to going back. The next generation is doing a great job. They haven't changed any of the classics and have even added some great specials. I had a venison filet in a red wine sauce that was perfectly prepared, and... More

First time there since change in owners Different vibe/a couple different waiters, clientele. Roast chicken, my usual dish, was not quite up to par (another friend ordered and felt the same). The place looks refreshed though and everything else was delish.

My fiancee has been coming here forever, and I have for about 10 years. The food is excellent - steak or chicken cacciatore - the decor is original. You step back into time...a more elegant time...and enjoy delicious fare! Great little bar and excellent service!
