The Cider Press has been a favorite for us, a "go to" place where we always count on good food, good service, always. Last week we joined several friends for dinner on a week night and were very disapointed. Our server seemed annoyed, perhaps tired, but in any case she was not friendly nor did she seem to be pleased to be working. Most of us ordered from the evening specials and we shared the lobster stuffed baked haddock. Several others ordered the same dish. We all found it very very dry, the fish was brown around the edges and the flavor was boring and uninteresting. We understand it is nearing the end of the "season", but if a restaurant is going to remain open for the locals as well as for tourists, the food should be the same quality all the time. Some of our dining friends mentioned this is not the first time they've had poor quality food there, but this was our first and only bad experience. We are hoping management will read this and take note.....the server should easily have seen the fish was not up to their standards and perhaps made an offer to replace the meals? If she is the owner though, it might have had an influence on that. At any rate, we will consider carefully before dining there again any time soon; a bit expensive to have left so much food on our plate.
