we waited for quite awhile......not prompt with asking if we needed anything, it was a holiday so we gave them the benefit of the doubt....was not overall very happy with the whole experience.overrated and expensive for the quality of food we were served......hazelnut tart.....???? the only thing hazelnut about it was the measly little hazelnut plopped on top of brick hard tart.......waht a ripoff and word of mouth travels......just for the future!!!!!

We returned here after many years and were pleasantly surprised. The greeting was very warm. Wishing Well is old time class with some kitchen updates. The $25 Sunday special is a great value for a three course meal.

A very classy restaurant. It isn't for those with a light wallet. The food is well prepared and presented. There is plenty of varous entrees to chose from on the menu and the desserts are also quite delicious. Many rooms with one in particular having a cozy setting.

Very old building. I don't know if charming or outdated applies. Food was good, not great. Service was very good. One of those places that regulars swear by- a local institution. However, it has a musty smell that signals that it may have turned the corner- not in a good way.
Probably worth at least a drink in the ancient bar area, and make your decision then.

Excellent food, excellent service! No matter what you order, no matter when you go. Great food and great proportions. Owner walks around the tables to make sure your meal satisfactory. Unbelieveably excellent!
