PAIRINGS palate + plate
Our plates, which change based on seasonal availability, extend from gourmet to comfort. Each dish is prepared with ingredients strategically paired to intrigue and invigorate, to stimulate and satisfy; just-baked breads and desserts, freshly rolled pastas, slowly braised meats, à la minute sautéed seafood and churned daily ice creams, leave no palate untingled.
Sit back. Relax. Sip. Rekindle. Dine. We welcome you into our house with open arms.
Everything about the place is great. Owners pay attention to every detail. Food was awesome, so was the service!
Love this restaurant so much ! Everything is always special - kindness and joy abound
To start the evening off, we were greeted with smiles and pleasant conversation by the owners. The menus presented to us had a "Happy Birthday" written on the top...we were celebrating one of our birthdays....very nice touch. Our server, Sara was exceptional ! One of the best servers we have ever had. Very pleasant and knowledgeable about the dishes. The salads were beautiful to look and tasted as good as they looked. The homemade bread is light and buttery. Tuna Tartar was exceptional, nice and fresh. All of the fish ordered by three at the table was fresh and cooked superbly. My short ribs were so luscious and the vegetables were fresh and cooked to perfection! Homemade desserts were also very tasty and ....loved the ice creams. Wonderful food, service and lovely evening.
Food was great, service was good
Above and beyond! We were celebrating a work anniversary. The owners made a personalized menu that read Happy Anniversary! So thoughtful❤️. Our waiter Jay was very attentive!
The seasonal menu gave us plenty of choices, especially for me, I am gluten free.
Always a wonderful dining experience. The encrusted salmon was delicious!
Outstanding - food, service and atmosphere!! Came here for a BD celebration which happened to be their 4 course Wednesday dinner - every course was 5 stars!! They even made a a special printed BD menu and personalized the dessert course for celebrant. I can’t wait to come back again. Perfection!!
Great food. Wonderful atmosphere.
Lovely, as always, from the minute we walked in the door. The food never disappoints, the service is impeccable...We just keep coming back!
I'd give this ZERO starts if I could. Husband and I are foodies and appreciate local, national/international dining. This restaurant is all pomp and no circumstance. The space is nice, separate rooms- but that's as far as the positives go... Food is extremely subpar (scallops were rubbery) fish was moderately acceptable. Glazed carrots/haricots were mushy and drowned in sauce, masking the taste of supposedly fresh vegetables. The poached pear salad contained bacon, and for a vegetarian (as stated when reservations were made) this was unacceptable. There was no apology from higher management, Multiple online reviews state the restaurant does not consider restrictions, allergies and food sensitivities- and they certainly do not. And it was vastly vastly overpriced for the portion and quality. I'd recommend making a reservation at any other restaurant.
The food is very well prepared. Wife had the stuffed chicken and crab cake app. I had tuna app and duck. All were well prepared, chicken perhaps a bit salty. Service was attentive, young staff, maybe a bit too fast since he seemed to knock a few things over at our table and the one next to us.
Have dined here a few times, and will go back. Very nice atmosphere, and BYOB.. bring a nice bottle.
Great menu and customer service
The ambience was nice and the waitstaff were friendly. The food was not special for the price that we paid. It was well prepared and tasty, but not remarkable at all.
Outstanding Meal! We had dinner on Saturday night to celebrate an anniversary. The welcome was warm and the food was delicious. They offer an amuse bouche to start which is such a nice touch. All courses were first rate: soup, tuna tartare, pork chop and eggplant tower. Dessert was a selection of ice cream and sorbet. The hosts also sent over a platter with "Happy Anniversary" written out in chocolate along with some small cookies. An elegant end to a divine meal. Since it is BYO the value is outstanding.
We love Pairings. The food is very good but what makes it special is the comfy tables and high back booths, the fantastic service, the special touches like offering a palate cleanser, and the quiet atmosphere where people actually speak in lowered voices, unlike so many places these days. Most of the food is top notch and the menu is always changing. It’s not cheap but the special occasion feel to the restaurant makes it worthwhile to us.
excellent food high prices limited menu noise from next table of six people threatened to ruin a beautiful evening
Always a pleasure to have dinner at Pairings hosted by Vincent & Carol!
This has always been a special place to go for a special reason. Birthday and anniversaries in particular. It was my friend's birthday and we had such a great time last year, we thought great to go again. It always feels so special and never rushed. The staff are always so thoughtful. The little extras with each of the meals makes it an event not just a meal.
Delicious food and wonderfully hospitable customer service! Can’t recommend this place enough. I would give them 10 stars if I could.
I can't say enough about our dinner at Pairings. The service was excellent. The food was one of the best meals I have ever had. The staff was super friendly and I loved that we did not feel rushed to leave even after we had dessert. Would recommend Pairings to all!
The food was excellent and the service was very good. Not your everyday menu! A lot of thought is put into their dishes.
It was our third time there and have never had a bad dish. No liquor license so it’s a BYOB.
Great food and service, as always. Pairings does not disappoint.
I booked Pairings for my husband's 40th Birthday the morning of the celebration, we were welcomed by lovely hosts/owners. I have left the note for them while booking and asking them for some accommodations. They went above and beyond to meet and exceed our expectations. Food was delicious, restaurant was beautiful, clean and quiet, everyone was able to talk and hear each other. Thank you and we will be back for sure.
We were very warmly greeted by the owner(? Assumed), given a choice of tables, and upon glancing at the menu, immediately noticed a personalized message wishing us a happy anniversary. Our waiter was happy to supply his personal recommendations as well as answers to any questions we had about the menu. We both ordered the entrees that he recommended: pork chop and salmon.
I started with the scallops which were cooked perfectly, nicely seasoned, with a light sauce. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the tuna tartare, as well as the salmon and a few tastes of my pork chop. My pork chop was outstanding. I do not eat pork often, but this chop was the most tender that I have ever had. My husband agreed. The sweet brown sugar glaze (slightly caramelized), was delicious and not at all overpowering. The broccolini served alongside was tender with a wonderful garlic taste. (The pork is served with mashed potatoes, which I have no doubt are heavenly, however, I opted for a double portion of broccolini instead.) Biscuits that are served are so fresh and clearly homemade. We regretted only eating one when they were nice and hot, as we ultimately ate the second ones when they had cooled anyway.
The desserts sound amazing! Unfortunately, we were stuffed! Next visit will consist of 2 appetizers and dessert, or entree and dessert. I will not leave without trying one of their decadent desserts!
We were presented with a platter with “Happy Anniversary” written in chocolate and biscotti (clearly house prepared and very fresh).
We highly recommend Pairings. So looking forward to our next visit!
When we walked in, we were greeted with kindness. This was our first time here and it won't be our last. We were given menus wishing us a "Happy Anniversary" which was a classy way to start our meal. We loved all the ways they work with our food allergies and everything was delicious! Loved the bottles of water on the table too. Pretty much a perfect dining experience.
Great place but we’d like to see the menu change up have tried everything needs refreshing!
Our friend got us a gift certificate at Pairings, which she said was her favorite restaurant, and now we know why. My husband and I absolutely loved the food and overall experience at Pairings. We will definitely go back to our new favorite place.
Perfect dinner in all ways. Or dinner was delicious. Never any complaints when dining here.
We went to Pairings to celebrate my Mom’s 90th birthday, the owners and staff were wonderful. They all made my mom feel special and were very accommodating to my grandson and family. The food was delicious, the pork chop outrageous! We all agreed the cheesecake was the best we had anywhere.
Everyone was very happy.
Birthday with a friend
Lovely atmosphere and comfortable seating. Was there on a Wed night when it is 4 course price fixed. Plenty of food and very fresh and delicious. A very enjoyable meal
4 course Wensday is a steal
First time here and it was a home run- excellent food, service and ambiance, right in the middle of a happening area. What more could you ask for? Go there!
An exceptional find. Interesting offerings, well prepared. The Personalized Birthday menu and desert were nice touches. The palate cleansing sorbet before the Main course was well- done. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience.
As always, everything was delicious from beginning to end. The service was smooth and professional. This is one of our favorite local places!
Pairings is the first restaurant we think of for a special evening! The food is delicious, service attentive, nd the hosts are always delighted to see us. We are always treated so beautifully.
Long wait for entrees and appetizers were below par- haven’t been here in a while and they eliminated some of the best options for appys. Coconut shrimp were stale and chewy. Very disappointed that appropriate wine glasses were not presented for a very fine red that I brought. Standard “genetic” glass - not impressive for what is considered a wine pairing culinary experience. No one seemed to care after we expressed our disappointment.
