Seafood | Newtown, Connecticut

Still Great and always meets our expectations for fresh, good service. If I have to find something to improve it would be a little more comfort on the seating (chair pads would help, especially on the bench). Still no side salads, only BIG ones which are too filling for 2 people and who wants to be too full for dessert, especially when their cannoli's are scrumptious? More

Mediterranean | Woodbury, Long Island / Hamptons

Came with my wife for a quiet dinner, with Liz as our server. Liz and our food were great, and would have been 5 starts across the board if not for a couple of dining pet peeves I have. Hate it when dishes are collected before everyone is done eating, especially when there is only 2 of us. And there was this busboy, only she was a woman, who literally asked me if she could take away my espresso after having one sip. She may have tried to take things away from the table 17 times, whcih we both found bothersome and kind of over kill. More

We go to Henkelmanns for special occasions and between the bartender and the waiter (I wish I had his name) it is always great. Of course the food is always very good and the restaurant is very pretty especially around the holidays. More
