    The service was poor. The server was very nice…but didn’t check back with us often enough. Waited too long and decided to skip dessert. Had to ask the greeter at the front to get the check. Went to the restaurant for my husband’s birthday…was a flop.

    We hadn't dined here for a few years and were impressed. Everyone enjoyed their orders, commenting on how delicious the food was, and I appreciated the server's eagerness to find out how to adapt some of the dishes to make them vegan. The adapted dishes I ordered were equally delicious with very fresh ingredients. It was wonderful to have the option to sit outside although outside there isn't as pleasant as dining al fresco on Green Street at another restaurant we go to often. But there's little, if anything, The Arbour can do about that. And the food and service were fantastic! Can't wait to go again!

    We’ve been to the Arbor a handful of times since it opened and it has remained consistently good, both in terms of food and service. Whether you want to grab dinner and drinks at the bar or be seated at a table we find that both are comfortable ways to dine. Last night we made a reservation and brought some friends with us. We were seated at a booth and the glass partitions between the booth made for a comfortable conversation without a lot of background noise. We all enjoyed our meals and cocktails. Our friends commented on how lovely the ambience is and they will now be returning customers. The prices here are comparable with what you pay elsewhere for the quality and selection. The menu has a good variety with something for everyone.

    Must visit for anyone interested in Farm to Table. Flavors were great on my Watermelon Drop, Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad, and Burger. You can taste the care in each and every bit. Lorna, our service was right on time with refills on waters, and was knowledgeable about the menu. Place is beautiful. Exposed beams make a intimate and welcoming setting. After sunset the place flickers with candlelight accentuated with warm lighting. Visit for the food and experience.

    Food was quite good, salads were fresh and delicious. Entrees lacked finesse, bucatini was heavy on the everything so was similar to a cheesey tomato pasta one might make at home. Duck was $42 but breast was dense and tough so not well prepared as most duck breast is quite moist when prepared properly. Confit leg was yummy but clearly the easier one to pull off. Other than that we enjoyed it. I Have a feeling the experience would be better inside, as we sat outside without a table cloth.

    The food was excellent. Took ten minutes for someone to come over for a drink order even though the restaurant was not even half full. Most of the staff was standing around talking amongst themselves. Once the waiter did come he came often enough to be acceptable. The food was better than expected. My wife had lobster risotto which she thought was excellent, and I had the steak which was perfectly cooked.

    Although the service was haphazard at best, the food itself was the biggest issue. All of the food was too salty. The greens in both the Caesar salad and the salmon salad were warm and somewhat wilted. The salmon itself was overcooked and dry. The prosciutto in the melon salad was sliced too thick and the melon itself was unripe and tasteless. The portion of butter that arrived with the bread was almost totally melted and smeared all over the plate. At the end of our meal a gentleman in a suit interrupted our conversation to inquire how our meal was. As we were all trying to formulate a response he strode off, stating "Well, you had a good time anyway." A true statement, but unfortunately our enjoyment had nothing to do with the restaurant.

    Food and service overall was good, but a little on the pricier end! We got the ribeye for 2 which was $145. The meat was very juicy and tender. The value was okay given the portion. It came with tomatoes on a vine and some baked potatoes. Alone, I feel like we would’ve been hungry without the complementary bread + appetizers. We ordered the lobster risotto as well ($52). Value was okay as well given the portion and taste, which was on the saltier end. The last thing we got was the pasta paparadelle, which comes with pesto and burrata cheese. Very flavorful and thought that was good ($27), not too salty and creamy with very big portions and pasta tasted handmade. Service was okay! We had requested for a birthday dessert but it never came for my mom. Complementary was good, but came upon request even though I heard that they usually fill it without us asking. Overall it was not bad! But I wouldn’t come back very often, only for very special occasions.

    We had a wonderful evening at The Arbour. The service is always outstanding. Judy was our server and she was excellent! SO attentive and friendly. She took the time to look at my guest's photos of a new house they bought and I know Judy was so busy! My guests had never been to The Arbour and were pleased. The apple salad is excellent as were the desserts. The salmon salad was "ok" as well as the chicken. Our guests enjoyed the sole. I will go back.
