    The surroundings are quite elegant, and it's quiet and very pleasant. Perfect for a group of old ladies. The food was excellent, and the prices right!

    Had lunch here with a friend. He ordered fish and chips and I had the tomato soup with brioche croutons..delicious. And the chicken salad..which was fairly generous serving and included baby tomatoes, and bacon and brie cheese. Parking is easy and service was good and it was relatively quiet and easy to have a good conversation

    We had a 7:30 reservation. Salads were delicious and generous. Mains were slow to come out but very good. After food was served we lost everyone’s attention. We’re not offered coffee or dessert after we had to flag people down for boxes and then had trouble getting the bill. It was like employees were tired and just wanted to set up for breakfast and go home. That could be improved. Thank you!
    Menlo TavernResponded on March 16, 2024
    Hi Mary , Thank you for sharing your constructive criticism with us! I am sorry you felt less than welcomed at the end of your meal. I have discussed these points with our team to ensure a comfortable dining experience for the duration of your stay.

    we had a delicious dinner with two couples. the food was excellent and they had a variety of dishes to satisfy every palate. I dined on the cornish game hen and had a butter leaf leaf salad to start. the Game hen was perfectly cooked. Others at my table had the salmon, casaulette (vegetarian) and the Menlo Burger. All were delicious. we started with Calamari Fritti and a flatbread (pizza). the atmosphere was perfect. we were able to have a conversation while dining, and the service perfect. we will be back.
