Unfortunately the service was really bad tonight. We took another couple to dinner because we had told them all good things about the restaurant and we were excited for them to try it. The service was so slow. We ordered 2 appetizers that never came. The waitress said the order didn’t get into the kitchen. She rarely came over to our table. It felt like we were being ignored.
Dinner finally came 1 hour 15 minutes after we sat down.
Appetizers would have been very helpful since we sat there that long.
We were very embarrassed that this night we took our friends. I know they will never go back.

We were there on Valentine's Day so we expected it to be busy. The food was sensational, the music good. The service was a bit slow, but that was to be expected on a major Hallmark holiday. The waitress was pleasant, did her job well, and was as attentive as was possible under the circumstances - I'm not complaining. I would absolutely recommend it.

The food is very good and consistent however, the service on the last visit on Valentine’s Day fell short. People that arrived after our party of 4 received their appetizer before our table. Our Salad appetizers arrived at the same time as our entree’s even after we brought the delay to our server.

Our server name was Claire. She was very attentive and explain the specials. The food was very good. I had the salmon which was very good. My wife is a vegetarian and the menu does not meet the needs. If they could include some vegetarian dishes it would be great. Here’s hoping they read the review.

The Fairview never disappoints. We had a great meal with great service. And, since it was Saturday evening, there was a singer playing guitar which made for some really nice entertainment.

The food was fabulous. It was New Year’s Eve and very busy. Service could have been better but it appeared they were short handed. Waitress was very nice and very apologetic. Would definitely return.

Spent New Years night at the Grill at Fairview. We had reservations and was seated right away. Our server Mindy was very good and made us feel right at home. Mindy made sure we were aware of all the special. Our food came out in timely manner and was excellent. We both had the haddock plate. First time there under new ownership. Will plan on going back again real soon. Thanks for a great evening and New Years dinner.

Hadn't been to the Fairview since it reopened under new management. We were pleasantly surprised. The overall experience was terrific. The service was A#1. Good pour of wine. The shrimp cocktail was excellent 6 shrimp cooked and chilled perfectly.
The seafood casserole was excellent and so was my wife's salmon salad.
I hope they keep it going!

The parking situation at this location is so ridiculous that we couldn’t even get inside to enjoy our reservation. We had a 7:30 reservation on a Saturday night. When we pulled up, there was a line of 6-9 cars in front of the restaurant and wrapping around the corner into a lot. These cars were all left running with their hazard lights on. There was a small “valet only” lot across the Very narrow street by the sea wall. That too was full, and in addition to being full of parked cars, there were also 3 more vehicles that were empty and left running, halfway in the road, presumably by the valet. There was only one young man working the valet, and he was in WAY over his head. I can’t imagine how long people were having to wait to get their cars back when they were trying to leave! There were no other options but to self park...parking was so limited that valet was the only choice. We waited for approximately 10 minutes before we could get a hold of the valet to park, and then he wanted us to leave our car halfway in the road across the street from the grill, running. It was at this point that we decided to run ourselves...far far away from this nightmare. We never even set foot in the door because the parking situation was so abysmal. Next time it pops up as an option to book, we will steer clear.

I had come to have an early dinner about a month and a half ago with an old coworker of mine. The grill at the Fairview Inn was his choice. I knew then after the dinner that I wanted to return. I took my wife and my cousin for an evening out in the Fairview Inn did not disappoint, from the service to the food the live music everything turned out excellently. The reason for the four star review is, in life nothing is truly perfect. I will definitely be returning my wife will probably bring her friends and my cousin will probably bring some of his friends.

Lovely view. Friendly staff. Welcoming atmosphere. We sat indoors but there is plenty of outside seating on warm days. The prices are reasonable. Food was very good. There were 4 of us and each ordered something different. Salmon, rib, salad with grilled shrimp and scallops. Everyone loved their meal.

I hate giving bad reviews, but had dinner there Saturday night and ordered the same menu item which I thoroughly enjoyed when I ordered it back in early June - seafood casserole; portion much smaller, fish was dry, over cooked and barely no sauce. Stuffed mushrooms and calamari apps were great. After dinner we sat at the bar and waited 25 minutes for 2 martinis; def should have been another bartender on duty. I’ll try it again next summer cause I really like the setting.

The chef is more creative in his offerings than most restaurants at this price point and the prices are extremely reasonable. I love to eat healthy with lots of vegetables and the fish selections were great. Bok choy, peppers with the fish were great. I'm gluten free and this restaurant accommodates my dietary restriction with creativity and interesting food. I'll be back.

Our server was excellent with a great personality. Very attentive but not overly so. Food was creative and delicious, and brought out within a reasonable time even though there was a wedding reception going on. Salads were fresh and tasty. Although there was a valet, the parking was a nightmare because the valets were so busy, but I assume it was because of the wedding reception. Prices were very reasonable, and space was nicely decorated. Absolutely would go here again.

Food is good. Front of house is terrible. Bring someone in the get this right. Everyone is enthusiastic they just don’t know what to do! Wine list needs to be updated. Place needs to
Decide whether it is a bar or a restaurant. You can do both but not in the same room! Music was way too loud and destroyed all hopes of conversation. Drinks took 20
Minutes. One food order forgotten. Get the front of house working and this will be a great place as the food was very good.

We had great service from our waiter. He was pleasant and extremely accommodating to our party of 6. The bartender, however, could have been a bit friendlier. We felt like we were bothering her when we asked for drinks, even though we waited a long time to get her attention. Food was excellent, so we will definitely have dinner at The Grill at Fairview again.

We’ve eaten here several times before since under new management and this was our best evening. Service was prompt and well paced. Our family group of four shared a salad and steamed mussels appetizer that were quite good. We all had seafood entrees, which were also well prepared. Decent choices for craft beers on tap. We’ll be back and hope to score a table on the deck on a nice summer evening.
