When our host, a year-round resident here, suggested where to go for dinner this was at the top of his list as it is one of the few restaurants opened all year long. Three of had dinner there on a busy Friday night (we had a reservatiion - necessary) and sat in the "gallery" - our table was fine, and waitress was wonderful. Food excellent - we shared a watermelon and feta salad, I had the salmon special - delicious; and other main entrees were vegetarian eggplant dish (there is good selection for vegetarians); and the duck - with an excellent sauce. We even had dessert - yummy rhubarb crumble; martinis fabulous too. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Our first visit. This is not only the best restaurant in Provincetown it is on of the top 10 in USA. You must make reservation forget walking in without one as it is always sold out. Service very good from reception to waiters. We had lobster risotto which was to die for. The chicken liver pate was fantastic. If your a foodie you got to visit this place

Had a great night last at mews.

Our friends got us a gift card we were excited to use but when I called a couple days in advance, mews was all booked for the week except for the first come bar area. We went right at 530 opening but the bar was already full. I beleive, caroline, the hostess was really nice and fit us in for the week at a table. Thank you

The downstairs dining area overlooking the beach and water was beautiful

Our server, ben, had a great personality and was very knowledgeable. Service was very good.

I would probably give the food a 4 star. It was very good but the ambiance and service bumped it up. The pork belly risotto app was delicious. My duck was good but the sauce could have used a little something. My wifes almond crusted cod was also nice. She found the sauce a little sweet. I liked it. It was very rich. Should have taken bens advice and went with the lobster risotto. Wish we had room for dessert

I really wanted to give a 3.5 but alas I cant so I gave Mews a 4....had dinner at Mews this past week with two close friends who had just gotten married. Yeah! Surprised them with a dinner at Mews. The service was kind of spotty and impersonal for the price of the food. Our table was looking at our empty glasses quite often. Maybe we were boring but for those prices....
Three of us had the filet which we were told "was the best on the island". The cut of meat was excellent and cooked perfectly but just was lacking in any "oomph". I know I will get some scowls here but Carabba's filet has more taste and seasoning. I guess I expected to be overwhelmed but was just left with....meh.

Haven't been since 2007. We were seated upstairs for dinner with friends. It was our first time there, didn't know about the downstairs seating area until later. Looking forward to trying out the diningroom this October. The dinner was memorable enough that we would like to repeat it.
