We went for our anniversary. My husband asked for a table with a view and we were seated at the window on with views of Pleasant Bay. The service was impeccable from waiting in the tavern for our table as we arrived early for cocktails before, to the manager Ehab who made it special by having a card from the resort and staff congratulating us really nice touch. Our waitress was pleasant and gave us wonderful service as did the bus people I have a pet peeve about sitting with dirty plates in front of me and that never happened here and no one tried to clear early either you never felt rushed. The food was fabulous from the wild mushroom risotto appetizer to the Halibut and Black Cod! We then ordered a dessert to share but staff surprised us with a little Happy Anniversary dessert with candle then our dessert arrived then they finish your meal with chocolate truffles and chocolate mandolins which were all amazing! We probably will forgo ordering dessert next time! I would highly recommend this restaurant for as special occasion as the prices are high for Cape Cod but definately worth every penny

You start off with a spectacular view. Food is some of the best on Cape Cod and presented very well. You are not rushed through your meal. We have been here twice and each time had a great meal. It is on the pricy side for the Cape, but well worth it. We will continue to come back here each time we are on the Cape.

My second trip to the Wequassett's principal restaurant. Overall a very enjoyable experience. The highlight is the high ceiling dining area with wonderful views of the Chatham coastline.

Food and service adequate. Servers were engaging and well prepared. For the Cape and excellent alternative.

My only complaint...for the second time, they seated us at a round table that was entirely too small for our party of 8. Make sure when you reserve that you get an adequately sized table.

Was this helpful? Please let me know.

Staying at the Wequassett resort, we obviously wanted to try this fine dining restaurant. We are not early diners, so we arrived at 28 Atlantic at around 9 PM. Even though the place was not full and there were plenty of tables vacant across the restaurant, we were seated at one of small tables in the back of the restaurant which meant one of us had a nice view of the restaurant, one of us had the 'nice' view of the dividing wall between 28 Atlantic and the adjacent Thoreau's bar & restaurant. During the entire evening, we were the only guests actually dining at this row of tables in the back. As we didn't have a reservation and suspected the other tables might have been reserved, we didn't ask for another table but when we saw the restaurant get emptier and emptier we thought: who would seat guests at a very small table in the back of the restaurant when not needed? We had a pleasant evening, however, our frustration in many restaurants in North America is that we often fail to understand the seating policy: we have had many occassions where we spotted a vacant seat but when the hostess said something along the lines of 'I've just walked around and there is nothing available at the moment.' In all cases, we got the vacant table but it's just annoying and not customer focussed. Anyway, we were dissappointed that also 28 Atlantic suffers from this and seated us at the smallest available table which later on also turned out to be inconvenient for putting the plates on as there simply was hardly any space. Then, the food was good for both the starter and the main course. Our waiter was friendly and flexible when we wanted to have an ingedient substituted. The what we suspected was the head waiter was very friendly and helpful as well; the rest of the staff could losen up a bit. For European standards, the timing of the food was fine; however, at some stage the head waiter came to report that the main course was underway (we had no issue) so probably something had not gone according to plan. All in all a great location - inside & outside - good food, friendly staff and good service, but a lost opportunity re the seating. Taking the reputation and price level of this restaurant into account, hence an average.

Had anniversary family gathering at Wequassett Inn and main dinner at 28 Atlantic. Had to spend a bit of time in planning and discussions with multiple staff but what a terrific stay and dinner. Breakfasts were good and main dinner @ 28 Atlantic was 10 out 10 by all measures. Salmon, steak, cod, lobster---all perfect.

Suggest you do spend the time to ensure site/staff understands what your needs are and your effort will very likely be rewarded with an outstanding dinner and experience.

All had a fabulous time !!
