My mother had to return the salad because of an allergy. The chef just covered the ingredient, brought it out, and slammed the plate on the table so the food flew all over. He rushed back to his open kitchen and shouted at us from there. Apparently my mother not wanting to go to the hospital for an allergic reaction... More

It has been literally years since we ate there. We were with another couple hoping to enjoy a nice dinner out. The woman of the other couple wanted a steak, but requested that it be medium/well or more. Her health did not allow her to eat less cooked meat. The waitress said that the chef would refuse to cook her... More

This is a favourite stop for us and we try to visit every other month or more depending on travel plans. The menu is limited to a few items but they are always wonderfully fresh and seasonal. We have had a few parties here as well and never been disappointed.

It's best to make reservations to eat here. We did get in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. You can walk through the garden while you wait for your food. It's like eating at a private home. The menu is unknown till the chef does his shopping. There are several choices to pick from.

Our lunch was an occasions of four friends who had a few years to catch-up on. The food was good and service staff delightful. The owner showed up in the dining area after about an hour and was rude and obnoxious - best describe as having the personality of a week-old urine sample !!!!

A fascinating outpost, Molly Ward Gardens! We stopped in for a midweek lunch and had the entire restaurant to ourselves. There were but two employees, who were gracious and friendly. The menu (delivered on a large rolled over whiteboard) was 5 choices brief and tempting from top to bottom. My Lamp & Sausage was delicious with a perfectly medium rare... More

This was to be such a special occasion. The food was good and the gardens were beautiful. When we asked simply to have the meat cooked a bit more, the head cook was insultingly rude to my entire family. It was an embarrassing and frankly mortifying experience to ever be spoken to in such a rude manner. I can't understand... More
