I would have given the highest rating. The food was amazing, the service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was very romantic. The one thing that almost spoiled our night was the way we were treated upon arriving. We had reservations and were told our table was ready. Another couple walked in after us with a different name and immediately a... More

You might consider sitting at the bar for a glass of wine before meandering through to the dining room. The small alcove by the window is a wonderful, quiet place to sit. The larger dining room is sort of so/so. A nice variety, though, somewhat limited, of delicious entrees are offered. Note: The service can be inconsistent. In fact, my... More

My husband chose this place for our 15th wedding anniversary as a surprise. Thursday night so not crowded, noise level low, a little difficult to read menu due to low lighting but we are both age challenged menu readers, so.... we made do. Server was pleasant and subdued, no "my name is blah blah and I'll be taking care of... More

Visited during Family and Friends Weekend, this is a 4 star restaurant. Food is served attractively in a timely manner during a time that was very busy. Wait staff was very professional !

The food is always good. The appetizer crab cakes are a favorite of many and can serve as an entree for smaller appetites. I seem to always get a fish dish here and have never been disappointed. The chocolate mousse is excellent and a hearty portion that serves two easily. The inside can be noisy and dark--when weather permits we... More

We were brought here by friends who are regulars. The room is lovely and quite upmarket. The service was excellent. An appetizer of 2 salmon sliders was first class, as was the tomato crostini. After that we shared a rack of pork which they kindly divided onto two plates. We can see why our friends come back so often.

Our family has been dining at Food 101 for years. We've celebrated birthdays, graduations and other special occasions. The menu is limited, but the food is fantastic! There is a way you can rate a restaurant and for me it is with the consistency of the quality of the food. Every time we go it is spot on...no matter what... More

What could be better than a casual restaurant that serves excellent food??? We chose to sit at the bar and dine on wonderful crab cakes (Best Ever!) and a side order of fries… The dipping sauces are awesome (especially the horseradish!) If you are anywhere in the area, we suggest you make a special detour to eat at this restaurant.... More
