My friends and I were in search of a restaurant for dinner during the Berks Jazz Fest and my friends who were with me were musicians who had to perform; The restaurant was full and had reservations the entire evening, but the owner was kind enough to make seating for us at their bar area. Bravo! We will be back... More

We always eat here when visiting family. The food is always wonderful. Manhattan clam chowder was excellent with lots of clams. Crab cakes were out of this world and the coconut cake is outstanding! Can't wait to go back again.

This restaurant is located in the basement of a small row home in West Reading, which though the tables are close together, it's still an amazing dining experience. The food is very good, but wouldn't call it exceptional. The service was fantastic. A little expensive for what you get, but overall, you will have a pleasant dining experience.

Had the pleasure of eating at Mom Chaffe's for first time, with a group of friends, and the electricity was out! The staff handled it with such grace, never skipping a beat and managed to deliver excellent meals, by candle light, that were enjoyed by all. Had the tuna steak, it was a moist, tender, melt in your mouth delight.... More

The sauce/gravy was bland and under seasoned as was the chicken. The grouper was cooked perfect but had no flavor what so ever. I also tried... More

Both the portion sizes and quality of the food exceeded our expectations. Our server, Aaron was on his game, and really knew the menu and specials. Just a few comments....the food was great!...the...

It was six years ago since we been here. My wife and I are celebrating our 20th anniversary and we decided to come back. Our waitress Rose was outstanding and on top of things. The food was great! My wife got the steak with mushrooms and I had the Orange roughy. Both were cooked to perfection. Then we had dessert... More
