    The entire dining experience was beyond expectations. My dinner was extraordinary! Every component of the plate complemented the other with exquisite flavor and truly perfect preparation. Even the cocktail was a step beyond great. The staff was congenial and helpful and the ambiance was pleasant as well.

    The food was outstanding. We really couldn't pick a favorite. We love how they use seasonal ingredients. The fiddleheads, were a first for us and we loved them! The rack of lamb was cooked to perfection. The Shrimp Carbonara was delicious. The veal bacon was a nice compliment, The veal dish was delicious. We had a guest that needed gluten free and they were more than happy to adapt.

    Our server, Mark, was attentive and friendly and Chef Dan made sure we were happy with our meal. My husband and I both had a mocktail and I highly recommend the spritzer. Also, get the Saratoga sparkling water- it’s worth it! We started with the cream of Baltimore soup which had a perfect level of spice. The duck was amazing and my husband loved the Delmonico steak and crab cake. For dessert, the pina colada pavlova was delicious and my husband loved the chocolate dessert. We especially appreciated the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Thank you for making our anniversary special!

    Overall, the food was excellent, and the pricing for this quality of dining is on the moderate side - not especially high. Everyone at the table loved sampling my osso buco. The chef's take on shrimp carbonara was inventive and well enjoyed. My sister, whose birthday we were celebrating, loved her Marseilles (look it up on the menu). I'd like to try one of their steaks next time in. The ambiance was relaxed, not stuffy. Chef Dan, the owner, stopped by our table for a pleasant visit. However, the wait staff seems to need more training. Our server was either new, or filling in due to the large parties he mentioned taking place on a Tuesday evening. He did not know anything about the wine list, nor did he volunteer to find a somm (if one was on duty) or someone else on the staff who might help us order wine. Once our food was served, he disappeared for the balance of the evening. There's a difference between being attentive and hovering, but he was neither. We mentioned that we would be sharing an app and a salad, but apparently that message was not passed to the runner who brought the food and almost literally dumped the app plate in front of me, without any sharing plates. Also, the same runner bizarrely collected my unused and untouched silverware after the app course, so that I had to ask for a new set up when the food arrived. He did not do this with everyone. I expect that like so many restaurants the Inn is navigating decimated staffing levels, due to both finding experienced wait staff and trying to stay on the black side of the margin. At the end of the meal, no one was upset or disappointed - quite the opposite - but one would hope that this restaurant would aspire to upping its attention to detail in serving to meet the level of its food. Well trained wait staff greatly enhance the experience of fine dining, and well trained does not have to mean pretentious. But the Inn is definitely worth a repeat trip.
