Who knew? My husband and I were using a Christmas gift certificate from my sister. I had chosen this restaurant from the 10 or so she had done research on. I ski at Okemo and Ludlow is only a 45 minute drive from our home...More

Front of house is warm, knowledgeable, professional yet very personable. Same goes for the wait staff. Kitchen pumped out amazing fare all night, and cocktails and wine list were on point. The portions are surprisingly good for a more upscale place, not that we complained....More

Love the Downtown Grocery. Excellent food, service, and libations. You won’t be disappointed. We enjoyed offering from the special menu but have also eaten the flatbreads and salad. Never had room for deserts.

Came for the prix fixe dinner on New Years Eve and can't have imagined a more delicious meal to kickoff the new year. Still dreaming about it in March. If they still have it on the menu, you must order the oysters (appetizer), lobster ravioli,...More

This “city” quality restaurant has been a go to place for many years now but I can’t help to feel that the husband and wife team has many distractions with the new restaurant they opened next door (Mama’s). It shows in the service and effort....More
