We arrived with our reservation and they said sorry we do not take Open Table after 3 pm. There were 7 of us including a baby. This us totally unacceptable.

Used to love going here, one of the restaurants I made sure to support through COVID, mostly takeout. VERY disappointed and will not return. Saw tables being served liquor - NO food to the table for the hour and a half we were there. Sat outside while some man was smoking a cigar in the patio. Servers allowed it, apparently he is a "regular" so it was ok. Disgusting to smell while eating, never mind it's against the law. Gross. I was a server for 20 plus years, couldn't believe what I was seeing. Sad.

Great food just a bit old fashioned inside, I think it’s more suited for a very older crowd. The food was good though no complaints with service

Dined on the patio. Music was far too loud and difficult to talk around the table. In addition, the route 1 traffic added a fair amount of background noise. Would not hurt to put a fence between the patio and route 1 to reduce background noise and add a little ambiance.

It was nice to visit the Lafayette House again. We've not been for a while since Covid, like everyone else. Hard to see so many restaurants so quiet. We try to hit them all up as much as we can, rotating around. Hope to be by again in a few months. Thank you for your great service and warm hospitality. The Noel Family

We went for an anniversary dinner on a Saturday night and sat out on the patio. They had live music and string lights which created an enjoyable atmosphere. I got the filet, which was fantastic. My fiancé got the salmon which he said was “okay”. My only complaint was they were obviously understaffed. We were seated in the back and waited 30 minutes without anyone coming over. I finally called a server over and she took our drink and food orders and checked on us somewhat frequently thereafter. The table next to us had also been forgotten about and had to speak up to get their orders taken. Regardless, the pros of the night outweighed the cons and I would definitely go back for that filet! Just hope they hire a few more servers!

Service was slow and the specials menu on-line was different from what was offered the evening we went to the restaurant. I was very much looking forward to a Prime Rib, which was what was listed on the on-line menu and disappointed to find out the restaurant was not keeping this page up to date on their web site. The beer selection was poor...nothing on tap and the service was slow despite the restaurant not being that busy.

I always enjoy coming to the Lafayette House and Monday March 2nd was no exception. The food was great and our waitress Wanda was wonderful. We were not rushed and had a very leisurely lunch. We will be returning soon.
A note of interest: My husband and I had our wedding reception there 52 years ago.
People are still talking about the Filet Mignon we had for dinner.

The food and menu here has not changed much over the years. The serving staff seemed to have seen a better day. Our waitress was older than dirt, paid zero attention to us. She never brought water after 2 requests, but mysteriously delivered a second round of drinks that nobody ordered. Still waiting for our water. She never cleaned our table after dinner. Tried to get her attention repeatedly without success. We were attending a show up the street and had to ask 2 other servers to get her attention so we could get our check. One of the worst serving experiences ever experienced.

With that said, all 3 of our dinners were perfectly cooked and delicious. Too bad all was ruined by the service.

Very quiet Tuesday night but enjoyed our table near the fireplace. Lafayette stuffed mushroom caps good for sharing even though there were 5. Rack of lamb cooked to perfection and looked so pretty on the plate that it warranted a picture. Broiled scallops very plentiful and delicious. No room for dessert tonight.

I enjoyed the meal. Large portions were very good. Service was prompt, drinks were well made as well. Only downside is the restaurant is old (part of the charm I guess), and a little facelift would help.
