The reviews look good online but I was disappointed with the quality of the food, which was mediocre given the prices. The crab cake had very little crab and way too much breading, the bread with the meal was some tasteless pita and my salad was mundane. My dinner partner liked the meat loaf, but it was super rich. We split a lemon tart, but it was so sweet all I could taste was the sugar--no pleasing lemon bite.
We had solid service and the interior was somewhat charming but also more bland than I expected for such an historic spot. Everything I read led me to believe that we'd get an elegant high end meal that justified the cost of about $50 a person (modest ordering at that) but I've eaten at spots in the Greater Hartford area that receive no stars from publications like Hartford Magazine that are much better (and cheaper).
