The food was exquisite. It had a lovely atmosphere and the waitress was very nice and attentive without being pushy. The mousse cake was one of the best desserts I've ever tasted.

Antique Table never disappoints. I particularly like the Manchester location for the ambiance especially when their outside deck is open. Food is consistently good as is the service. Great experience!

My 3 girlfriends and I had such a delightful evening at your restaurant on July 20th. The food and service was amazing but must of all the host/Manager, Oscar, (I think that was his name) went above and beyond. He came over to our table several times to see if everything was as it should be. We will definitely be back and “spread the word” to family & friends! Lorraine OHare/Topsfield, Ma.

They were a little short-staffed, so we weren't attended to like customers would be normally. Not really something they can control right now. Other than that, everything was great. It was the most relaxing meal we've had in a long time.

There was absolutely nothing that wasn't perfect. The waitress was fantastic. The food was amazing. The dining area made us feel like we had our own private dining nook. I like this place better than the Salem location. But they are both great places to eat and drink. I will highly recommend this restaurant and will bring guests back with me. Thanks for making Mothers Day really great.

This was our 2nd visit, the other in Feb. We like this restaurant very much and have recommended it to others. Every food item was excellent and service was great. On this particular occasion, there was a very noisy group in the “fireplace room,” which was the next section over from us. It made it difficult to carry on a conversation until that party left.

Busy night but the waitress was great considering how many tables she had! Due to this, service was a little slow. Food and drinks were great! Ambience is nice and tables are far enough away so you don’t overhear the tables near you. Can’t wait to go back.

Really nice place with friendly and attentive staff. Appetizer and both main courses were delicious. This will be our new "Go To" place for special occasions. The dishes were spaced out enough that we could enjoy each others company without feeling like they forgot about us or feeling like we were being rushed. Definitely a place to relax and enjoy.

Dined on a Wednesday evening. Our waitress, Grace, was wonderful. She was very attentive, and the service was excellent. The portions were a good size but found the menu to be limited in appetizers and salads. A la cart for salad was a disappointment. I wish it came with the meal.

I think a “no cell phone use” policy would make a dining experience much more enjoyable. We had a table of 5 directly behind us use a cell phone on speaker to call, sing and chat with family. This lasted for app 5 min and was not stopped by anyone responsible in the restaurant. It was extremely rude and did affect our dining experience. This aside, we absolutely loved this restaurant.
