"I was disappointed with the Boarding House. I have wanted to try this restaurant for a long time, and figured that Restaurant Week would be the perfect opportunity. I should have skipped the RW menu and just ordered off the regular menu the food would have most likely been better and probably less expensive. They were crowded, but I'm sure they always are. The service, was good, though nor great and we waited quite a while for our entree. I ordered the salmon entree and the vegetable with or was so salty I could not eat it. As I said, overall, quite disppointed."

"We had an amazing experience celebrating two birthdays here. We were struck by the ambience right away. Alpana was in the house and that was nice to see. We had a lovely corner table with excellent service and complimentary glasses of prosecco and a small dessert surprise."

"We've tried to come a few times and finally planned far enough in advance to snag a table during restaurant week. Great deals were being offered, but we ended up ordering off the regular menu. The stuffed calamari app and sturgeon entree were phenomenal and servers friendly and attentive. As much as we loved the food, I may have loved the building, ambience & decor even more. Considering this was among the best dining experiences ever, the price was well justified. An absolute gem not to be missed."

"We have been wanting to go to The Boarding House for some time and Restaurant Week seemed perfect. When you first walk in, the bar takes up the whole first level, loved the look of the whole ceiling having the suspended wine glasses. We took an elevator up to the 3rd floor dining room. The building is an old brick building with large windows facing Wells, they left the brick exposed, furniture has a Victorian flare with a modern palete and hundred of wine bottles suspended from the ceiling. I thought it is very inviting and had a romantic charm. Our waitress was great and very informative. We did go with the RW menu which was definitely on the safe side but very good. I had the Hen and Polenta Fries, the seared Salmon and the dessert of 3 cookies. My husband had the Mushroom Risotto was wonderful. Our friends had the Sunchoke soup and the half Amish Chicken, they all enjoyed the meal. We did the wine pairing which was so well done. We is come back again and try other menu offerings."

"Wow, we had a great evening. The food was perfect. Service professional but unobtrusive. The restaurant is gorgeous. We will be back. I might just have to have the same meal again. Sunchoke soup and salmon with green curry sauce."

"Our experience was amazing at The Boarding House with great food, great wine, and the hostess who greeted us and checked our coats was very nice. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive, and the whole restaurant did not disappoint. The whole experience was a little over-shadowed by the hostess who got our coats for us before we left, who wanted to argue with us when we told her we were only given one claim ticket for three coats. She insisted that she would have been the one to check them (it wasn't her, it was a different hostess... she even challenged the time we arrived) and insisted that we had more claim tickets. This whole situation was not a big deal, and we were not making a big deal out of it, offering to find them ourselves to save her the trouble, but she immediately got an attitude with us. We described the other coats to her, and she finally found them, and rudely showed us that the claim ticket was still attached to the hanger and said, "your other number was 409, by the way," as if we were supposed to know that. It was sad that after such great food and wine at such an amazing place, all we could talk about on the walk home was the inquisition about the coat check. Great place that I highly recommend, just make sure you grab all claim numbers for all coats that are checked."

"Nice wine list, charcuterie and cheese was delicious. Service on the 1st floor was great, dining room server was lacking customer service skills. A glass of dry white wine was served nearly at freezing temperature and rather than offerRestaurant week menu was tasty. The espresso covered Gelato was delicious."

"Another lovely dinner at the Boarding House--well-prepared, perfectly seasoned food and exquisite service combined for an enjoyable night out. I especially liked the wagyu beef tartare and mushroom risotto, and the espresso gelato bombe was perfect. Special thanks to our server, Brian, for going out of his way to ensure our satisfaction."

"We had a memorable meal during Restaurant Week. The decor, with wine glasses over the hostess station, and wine bottles as lighting in the upper dining room, was great fun--nice playful touch. The upstairs dining room had such magnificent huge windows. Service was impeccable, and food perfect. Go and enjoy!"

"We tried this spot specifically so we could try several things at a fixed price. The appetizers were especially good. We did the wine pairings as well - each glass was wonderful. We enjoyed the experience overall but keep in mind this is a pricey spot."
