We are not staying at the hotel with the restuarant, but was looking for an early dinner. They don't open until 5:30, but we sat in lounge area and had an appetizer until entrees were accepted. The food was delicious, we started with the beef...More

A cosy fire, "old New England style" decorations. The salomon and the lam was great. A nice central and different alternative at Kendal

Had a late dinner here while on a business trip. The place is small and cozy. The service was good as was the food. I had the Kale-quinoa salad (which mostly worked) and the double-chocolate cake (excellent). The prices were what I expected. Make sure...More

A very small restaurant with a short menu and small-minded cuisine. I ordered the $23 organic chicken and was served one very small chicken breast in a oddly buttery/sweet sauce (not the red wine sauce advertised), a tiny side of mashed potatoes, and perhaps five...More
