We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. The staff, as always, were pleasant to talk as well as the other guests. When we sat to eat the service was the same and food was top notch. Thank-You for a great evening.

Went for an early Valentine’s Day dinner and was a great experience. The staff asked if we were on an early Valentine’s Day date and when we said yes they moved us to a more private table. The staff was extremely pleasant and attentive.

Service was amazing. Food was good, lobster Newburg was skimpy, left my husband a little hungry still... Overall the experience was wonderful and we will definitely be back.

This is a beautiful restaurant. It is well appointed. The staff in the atmosphere are superb. The drinks are prepared well and the wine list is more than adequate. The food was not up to the level of my expectation but it was nonetheless good. I had the fettuccine black ink squid as my entrée . I thought it was somewhat flat and sour tasting. I thought it could’ve used garlic and perhaps even cheese. There were an over abundance of red tiny peppers and the crab meat was small and did not compliment the dish as it should. My wife had the Atlantic cod which was good and flavorful. Overall my experience was good there, I think that if I eat there again I’ll be more discerning about what I order from the menu.

This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Period. And I've eaten in a lot of restaurants. The carrot soup was superlative. Waitstaff attentive but not intrusive. Cozy and quiet. Fantastic!

Loved the atmosphere and very elegant. They were accommodating us when we wanted to sit near the fire which made it even more romantic for my birthday getaway with my husband. Food was amazing! Afterwards we went to the bar area and the service was just exceptional!

Amazing meal and vibe!!! The fresh warm bread starts the meal off right. The lobster newburg is a must!!! We all have different succulent fish dishes. We were too full for dessert but could've had all of them!!

We had a fabulous dinner on a Wednesday evening. The service was excellent; the waitstaff was both knowledgeable and personable. We have some food sensitivities that they handled with care and we still enjoyed excellent food.

After making reservations 2 months in advance for New Year’s Eve I was excited to eat at the Krebs. Their menu was lovely. I called and asked if they planned to have a price fix menu and they said they didn’t know. I would not have booked had I known that two days before- when it would be too late to cancel and book else where, they would have a very limited menu with a big price tag. Then when we arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and went to the bar, we ended up waiting an additional hour before we were brought to our table. Apparently the people at our table were not leaving even after getting their check.
Rather than putting us at another table , they made us wait an hour.
Sadly, it looks like we will never go there again and that’s a shame I was so looking forward to it

The was a special Menu for New Year’s Eve and it was a bit limited. The food was good but for $75 per person not including drinks or even coffee it didn’t feel like much of a deal. It took a while to place our order and when deserts were brought out we were not even offered coffee.

The salad and bread were the best parts of the meal.

The location is nice and parking on the street was no problem at all.
