Was here for a fund raiser and was very pleased with the experience. Food was excellent with a wide variety of choices. Live music lent and extra special feel to the evening. Good wine selection as well. Wait staff was very attentive and just plain fun.

The food here was excellent, The Onion Soup Lafayette was a wonderful version of french onion soup. The baked brie was delicious with fruit accompaniments, although smaller than I expected it was just the right size for one. The Yankee Pot Rpast was lovely melt in your mouth meat with a popover and some red cabbage with just the right... More

My favorite place to date. Oldest Inn in NY. Great food which you get plenty off for the dishes are a good portion. Fine wine to go with the meal. Place is filled with history for history buffs. The atmospher cozy. Great for a date, haning with friends or family and perfect for those special occasions.

Enjoyed a very nice lunch. The table side Cesar salad is amazing. My friend had the shepards pie which looked delicious. The building is beautiful and cozy in its historic glory.
