"Went there for lunch with a friend. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Extensive wine list. Creative cocktail list. Would love to come back, even if only to try their cocktails. They provide each table with a sampling of 3 (Italy, Spain, Greek) olive oils and their homemade rosemary bread. We ordered the truffle mushroom croquette, the Provense mussels, and a 3 crostini tasting for appetizers. Some of the best things we've ever eaten! Enjoyed the salmon tartar and paella del mar just as much as the appetizers. Finished off our incredible meal with a dessert crostini and chocolate pot de creme. Wish we had a restaurant this good nearer to our homes. Definitely willing to travel to come back to this gem of a restaurant!"

"Went to dinner at 8 North Broadway. Although it's a small restaurant and the tables are a bit close together, it had a nice ambiance and seemed a bit bigger than it was. Ordered the Salmon Gravlax. It was fresh and delicious. For the main course I had the sizzling Spanish Octopus. Although it was good, the dish was extremely small, seemed to be better suited for an appetizer than a main course dish. Had the Panna Cotta Brulee for dessert which, although had a nice flavor to it, tasted mostly like a Creme Brulee with lemon juice in it. The food was fresh tasting and I would consider coming back again, maybe this time for lunch."

Since welcoming its first guests in 1773, The Red Lion Inn has earned a reputation for outstanding food and genuine country hospitality. Those traditions are continued today by Executive Chef Brian J. Alberg, whose kitchen features contemporary cuisine that is rooted in the region's history and harvests. Emphasizing the use of fresh, local ingredients and a huge proponent of buying locally and sustaining the region, Chef Alberg regularly updates the Inn's menus to reflect the bounty of each season. Guests choose from the elegant Main Dining Room, the cozy Widow Bingham's Tavern, the casual Lion's Den pub, or, in warmer months, the flower-filled Courtyard. The wine list offers 450+ selections, and has received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for ten consecutive years; Sommelier Dan Thomas helps pair wines with meals. *The Inn accepts reservations for the Main Dining Room only.

"Stayed at the Red Lion Inn and went to dinner in the Red Lion Dining Room. The decor was old elegance and cozy. Although the drink I had ordered was aweful, the house white wine I ordered was delicious. Had the mussels for the appetizer. Very tasty. My main course dish was the pork confit. It was outstanding! The meat just melted in your mouth. Dessert was delicious but the coffee was bitter.
Ate breakfast in the dining room. Waitress was pleasant but seemed distracted. I ordered cream for my coffee but got skim milk instead. Ordered eggs benedict. Good but I've had better. Took forever to get another cup of bitter coffee along with the check. If I ever came back, I'd consider going somewhere else for breakfast."
