With the many dining options on Nantucket, you should avoid Company of the Cauldron. The meal was bland, poorly prepared and much was inedible. I would be embarrassed to serve the meal we were served. I expressed my dissatisfaction to the chef, but he was...More

Description
Owned and operated by Chef Joseph Keller
The Company of the Cauldron
Is a unique dinning experience! Quindesential old school hospitality at it's finest, Price fixe "dinner only" Menu changes daily
If you want to feel as if you have your own private chef, make reservations to dine at The Company of the Cauldron. Located in the heart of Nantucket's Historic District, the abundant charm of this small red building with ivy-covered windows invites you to enter. Inside the doorway massed flowers greet you. Just beyond, tables glow softly, lit only by candles. The kitchen is open and can be seen from the dining room. As French cafe music gently wafts in the background, sweeping you away to a romantic French cafe, where the dinning experience is meant to be shared, and the food and wine fully enjoyed in fantastic company.
The menu features classics and elevated comfort food that have been refined and developed over the years of his culinary career, and is reflected in his many cookbooks.
