An enjoyable atmosphere for a special occasion. The menu is small limiting main course choices to four or five items. The food is good and nicely presented but over-priced in my experience. Pricing is ala-carte and one should plan on spending around $100 per person. We have been to 506 two times over the past year. Both were enjoyable and expensive. The service was very good on both occasions.

Can't believe we've never been here for as many years as we've lived in Arlington. It was a fantastic experience and we'll be back for dinner, HH, brunch often. Food was excellent as were the cocktails. They even made me a drink that wasn't on the menu. The staff is very professional and courteous. They promoted social distancing, but in style.

We have dined here a few times in the past with great results and this visit did not disappoint. We were celebrating our anniversary and the complimentary glass of champagne was a nice touch. The bartender in the Van Gough bar was very nice and made delicious drinks. The waitstaff was attentive and made substitutions for side dishes. They did not rush us and we were able to enjoy a leisurely dinner. We were very pleased and will return again.

The restaurant has a very unique feeling to it. The Charm of this vintage setting is refreshing, calming. The menu is very simple,the Chefs change things up on the menu so it's a surprise when you arrive. Micki was our Waitress she's been there for several years, an was very professional,an knowledgeable about what's going on in the Kitchen. We came from a wedding had an hr to kill so grabbed some Cocktails an headed to the courtyard. For us we Love dressing up, but not necessary. I'm on the Metabolic Diet an Micki was able to offer ideas and still achieve a fantastic meal. Highly recommend it.

Wonderful experience, but were out of champagne on a Sunday at 12:30, so no mimosas or celebratory drinks. Not good for customers and no profit for business! Both food and service were outstanding, so all was not lost!

As always- a lovely experience. We had 3 couples...and were seated in the diningroom at the central table.
The "new" chef was visable and did walk throughs through the entire restaurant to check on the guest's meals. Attentive hostess.....warm greeting and farewell. Friendly waiter....loved the extra touches of the small appetizer and sorbet between courses. A luxurious and wonderfully paced meal.

It was a great eating experience. The food was delicious. The young man who waited on us was so friendly and kind. He had a wonderful smile. Service was great. I love the house. It was comfy and cozy. Beautiful! My friends and I have been friends since the early sixtys. We meet for lunch every other month, and we will certainly be coming back toSanford House.

The food was beautiful in appearance, fresh and prepared in a manner that brought out the unique qualities of each dish. The serving sizes were generous and the prices appropriate. Service was attentive without being overbearing and the setting understated, warm and inviting. Definitely worth returning again and again

We are big fans of the Sanford House and dine there frequently for special occasions. We were a little disappointed in the fixed menu and our server was not up to Sanford House standards. Having said all this, we will definitely be back!

Exquisite food, truly gourmet. Arlington is fortunate to have a restaurant like this. Service is a little leisurely, but this is not a place that you want to rush in and out of. The waiter was thoroughly knowledgeable about the dining options and the wine.

Food was not as good as usual. We had reuben sandwiches and they were quite mediocre. Meat piled in center, thick empty border of dry bread, a bare trace of saurkrout and very greasy. Usually the food is better prepared. Do go--the atmosphere is lovely. Just don't have this sandwich!

Made over reservation online about three weeks in advance. It was easy to do so. Upon arrival we were greeted very professionally, seated right away, and the remainder of our brunch went superbly. When leaving, were invited to walk the grounds to view the Christmas decorations, etc. We’ve been very pleased with Restaurant506 at the Sanford House each time we’ve been there and will continue to be repeat customers.

The crab cakes were great but there were too many potatoes. I enjoyed the coffee as well as the refills. Service was excellent. At the end of the meal, we were provided a pleasant look at the guest rooms. We really like the Sanford House and will visit there again.

This restaurant is a MUST for holiday dining in Arlington. The food quality was fantastic and the service was great as well. We enjoyed the meat and cheese board appetizer, entrees, a bottle of wine, and shared two desserts for our party of 4 and still spent just over $80 per person including tip! Seating is limited and the tables are pretty close to each other, but the noise level is still fairly moderate.

I can't recommend this restaurant enough during the holidays. It feels like you're stepping onto the set of a Hallmark Christmas movie!

Outstanding food in a lovely setting. Mickey, our server, was wonderful! In spite of taking care of quite a few tables she made us feel like we were her only customers. Stellar service. I can highly recommend the French onion soup, smoked brisket and goat cheese ravioli, the crab cakes and the red snapper. I’m quite certain everything on the menu is equally as good as the dishes we had. This is one of my two favorite restaurants in Arlington. If you’re looking for a fine dining restaurant in Arlington, look no further than Restaurant 506. I highly recommend it!

The foos quality has gone downhill in the last year and servings smaller. Used to have the best crab cakes but they are now very mediocre.

Won’t be back anytime soon. Hopefully they will get things back on track
