My boyfriend had reservations here on July 4. We waited in the adjacent bar, Thoreau's, for a short time for our window-side table. The bar was warm, and rustic, and the dining room was inviting and elegant. We would have been able to view the Wequassett Resort's fireworks display over Pleasant Bay directly out the window, but it had been canceled due to Hurricane Arthur. When we arrived for dinner it was already raining hard and quite windy.
After ordering, our server brought us an amuse-bouche of chilled soup; it is so rare for a restaurant to have them anymore. I had the lobster and mushroom ravioli as an appetizer and the caramelized day boat scallops as my entree. They were both very good. For dessert we shared the soft-baked maple cheesecake, which was not at all heavy. With our check, our server brought a cellophane bag with two fresh madeleines to take home.
Service was attentive, and the food was very good. Servings are not large, but that did not come as a surprise. I would definitely like to return when we could appreciate the lovely views and the terrace.
