Local establishment Food bland, busy bar, I am sure there must be better food in the area - it is New Jersey - pass on the food, even the lentil soup was bland and mozzarella sticks were dismal Have a drink

Food was so so. Had chicken Marsala. Nothing special. There is a pizza oven. We sat near this and it was noisy. Pizza was ok. Overpriced.

Nice atmosphere, so-so food, and somewhat removed staff. The restaurant is a historical building with a lot of charm. The food is average, nothing really stands out. The staff just seems to be there for a pay check, not customer centric.....

The entire place seemed dirty - no vacuuming, tables sticky, visible food on floor. Waitstaff impatient and unpleasant. Food took a long time to come out and was lukewarm. Awesome setting - such potential!

While we were excited to come here because it is charming Chester and the place looked interesting. Inside it was a nice atmosphere but the food was average at best and pricey for what you received.

Dined here for lunch a couple of times. Loved their arugula salad with pear, goat cheese and apple walnut vinaigrette along with grilled salmon. One of the times, there was an issue with their grill and I asked whether they could pan sear the salmon....More
