Stopped by for desert after dining at Irish Bar across street. You cannot be seated inside if not ordering dinner. We ate in lobby at patio tables. Great deserts. They have a takeout bar in lobby so we got lasagna to go. Want to come back for dinner, they are very popular.

Going to lunch with a vegan can be a challenge but the birthday girl requested the restaurant! And totally enjoyed her lunch. My experience was similar. Great sandwiches and salads!

Met a friend for lunch (first time for both of us) at this bustling Post Road restaurant. The salads were great, the waiters were attentive and helpful, and it had a very friendly atmosphere. I will return!

Great place for Sunday night dinner, awesome lunch (especially in the Summer with their outdoor seating on the patio) and they have an amazing take out deal, with great portion sizes. My family has been going here ever since I can remember (about 20 years). Their service is wonderful and they are very accommodating.
