Reservation made easily w/opentable. Reserved table available a few minutes early. Ordered the merguez (excellent) and caesar salad (avg) for apps. Entrees were all excellent: chicken piccata, beef bourguignon, and flounder francaise. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. Service was ok; secondary waiter was more attentive than...starting waiter. Desserts were great too (chocolate mousse cake and key lime tart). Will definitely return. Great place for date night, out of town guests, and special occasions.More

My husband & I met 4 friends for dinner. None of us had been here before & are very glad we found it. The food was excellent as well as the service. We sat inside. The tables are socially distanced & with clear dividers between...them. There were lots of good entree choices. I had the crab cake with the mushroom ravioli. For dessert - shared the key lime pie with my husband. The bottles of wine were at half price which was a great value. Another item we all appreciated was the quiet ambience. It was so easy to talk to one another. This is a neighborhood gem!!More

Always a favorite, this locally owned restaurant and wine bar shines, even in the Pandemic. The food is just terrific, even in grab and go for at. We can attest to crab cakes, blackened scallops, steak au poivre, pappardelle with beef Bourgogne. Love supporting a...neighborhood gem like this.More

An older restaurant with furnishings that provide a quiet ambiance that enables subdued conversation. A restrained menu that provides selections for most palettes. A similar wine list but one is able to match wines with courses by the glass or bottle. Service is discrete and...friendly with informed suggestions for food and wine matching. All food is prepared on premises so has fresh and original flavours. I asked for my steak to be rare and was delighted to find it perfectly cooked as requested. A very pleasant evening with my wife to celebrate.More

Went to an excellent lunch with m son (celebrating an adult birthday) and 2 old friends. Started with nice bread sticks (with oil and balsamic) and then we had the shrimp bisque (very good); shrimp ajo (also excellent); and main courses were the lamb burger...(moist with great fries); mushroom ravioli (outstanding); and chicken picatta (also very good) and finished with 4 desserts--all outstanding (cheesecake; banana cream pie; key lime pie; and tiramisu). Not the cheapest, but very high quality--especially pleased by chef prepared desserts. Worth a trip (we came in from Maryland and DC)..More

In a word, our meal/evening was perfect! Idylwood Grill is a restaurant my wife and have frequented over the past 10 years or more. It is a quaint space with a great menu and a relaxed atmosphere. The seafood linguini is a “go to” favorite,...but I think I tried their Filet Mignon au poivre that was FABULOUS! I think I reserved another restaurant for my French Steak Frite, but I’m so glad I had Idylwood’s! My wife and I were BOTH saying we thought about how good it was today during our workdays. If you’re looking for a nice place to have a relaxed conversation with your spouse and/or your best friend over great food and drink, this is a place you must try. You’ll be glad you did!More

Our group of 20+ tries to get together the last Wednesday of every month. In August we chose Idylwood Grill. We ordered from the days menu, and most of the dishes were ordered by one member or another. Everybody was satisfied with their meal. I...my take other friends there later.More
