With only a few tables service should have been very attentive and was not. Waitress never asked if we wanted more drinks after the first glass of wine, didn’t offer dessert so we had to inquire, and when one meal was over cooked did not handle the situation well. The appetizers were very good but the over cooked burger pulled my rating down.

Went for a Sunday Brunch and everything was excellent, food, service, drinks. There was an accidental spill at our table and I was treated like a house guest, given a dry shirt and my own was laundered. Just outstanding service, and you realize that they truly do appreciate your business.

The restaurant was nice. The staff was great and definitely knowledgeable with the menu and food items. The price was too high for what was offered for a brunch. Disappointment in the dessert items and tea was an additional cost as well. I would go back for a main course meal and for the ambiance, I would pass on brunch,

I would highly recommend if you want something "smart casual." The host was lovely. Our waitress was a bit pushy and although great at her service, she lacked personality. The food was delicious. Portions are very small for what you pay, but nice for a special occasion.

I was traveling with my husband to Lexington to visit my son and his wife and decided to stay at the Inn at Hastings Park. Absolutely outstanding hotel perfectly located. Helpful, friendly staff who go above and beyond to make sure you have the best time. Our room was spacious and luxurious, quiet area. Perfect for family, romantic getaways or business. Due to COVID-19 the front desk delivered our continental breakfast each morning. Also dinner at the Meeting Room restaurant at the Inn was above and beyond our expectations. My husband had the lamb and I had halibut both were perfectly prepared. The dessert was scrumptious. Very talented chef and pastry chef. The service was impeccable. We will definetely come back next time we are in the area. Highly recommended. Five stars.

Our first time dining at Town Meeting and it was a wonderful dining experience. Our service was outstanding and the food was terrific. The cocktails/wine were top notch as our server expertly paired for us. Dessert isn't something we normally get but happy we did! Not too sweet and espresso was dynamite. The ambience is gorgeous and it feels like you are having dinner at a friend's home. Unique and wonderful, we'll be back soon!

We ate outside on the front porch for lunch and enjoyed a lovely meal with beautiful ambiance. The staff did everything to make us comfortable - blankets, heater, hand warmers. Everything we tasted on the menu was delicious - lobster fritters, calamari, lobster rolls, Caesar salad... All COVID precautions were taken - we were very impressed.

Nothing is easy in the time of this pandemic but eating on the Town Meeting porch on a 45-50 degree night was a pleasant experience. The service was excellent, the food was excellent (for the most part) and they did their best to keep us warm. We had a small propane heater next to our table but the biggest help was the blankets they supplied. While the food was mainly delicious, we did have two concerns. The steak frites was on the small side and the entrees don't come with sides. So while the salmon was very good it made for a very small meal.

We did Sunday brunch on the porch and it was a lovely setting and great service. We started with the lobster fritters which were very good and split a nice spinach salad with cider and bacon dressing.
We both ordered the hash with poached eggs. I don’t know that I’ve ever had anything so completely bland anywhere . It was absolutely devoid of any seasoning or flavor.
Not sure that I’d return.

Everything was very good. Food was delicious, owner was passionate, stopped at each table, truly cares about the food and keeping patrons happy. The primary waitstaff person didn’t know how to pronounce some of the entrees or wines — seemed under educated in the world of food. That said, we are in the middle of a global pandemic and I can imagine staffing is difficult. Everyone was very nice and food was amazing.

We had our 13th anniversary dinner here, outdoors on the front porch, and there were blankets and a mini-heater provided for the table. It was dusk, there were dim porch lights and low music playing. It was a beautiful fall night. We ordered cocktails (The Bitters are Coming and the Champagne pairing) alongside appetizers and soup, which were all amazing. The Lobster Fritters were seriously the perfect bite of food - served with a sweet pepper jam, they were fluffy and airy and so full of flavor! I've been thinking about them since we were there!

Our server was fantastic, and when I asked her to just bring me a perfect red wine to pair with my steak frites she did just that, with a warm and robust French Bordeaux that I ended up ordering a second glass of. My wife got the salmon for her entree, which was one of the best prepared pieces of fish I've ever had (of course I sampled!) It was served in a mustard cream sauce and had a horseradish and parmesan crisp baked onto the top of it, which added such a nice texture and slight hint of kick. I'll order that for certain when we go back!

We thought we were too full for dessert, but ultimately decided to split the beignets, and were ultimately convinced to also split the homemade take on a s'more! I'm happy we were convinced, and since the wine pairing with dinner was so perfect, we asked our server to surprise us with dessert drink pairings, to which she brought us three different aperitifs to sample and judge alongside our dessert, which was the perfect way to cap of a fantastic evening.

I rarely write restaurant reviews, but, both my wife and I said that we need to shout to the world in any way we can how fantastic this place is, so, here you go. It's amazing! The food was perfectly prepared, the timing of all the courses was comfortable, we never felt rushed, but also didn't wait long periods of time - service was warm, knowledgeable and attentive! Five Stars all around.
