I had very high expectations of The Cook's Shop after reading many reviews, and also my pleasant phone experience in making a reservation. We thought the restaurant would be packed, even on a Sunday night, but surprised that it was about half full. My friend asked for a side of Alfredo sauce with his appetizer, but we learned the chef... More

Had the best experience here for an anniversary dinner with my boyfriend. The waitstaff was amazing, very attentive and friendly, and gave good recommendations. Could tell they were very experienced. The food was amazing as well, especially the bread and salad we had to start. Pasta was also great! Cozy and intimate setting, make reservations! I will definitely be going... More

My husband and I went for dinner here on December 28/16. He had made reservations ahead of time which was good as it was busy as usual. We were seated rather promptly the server took our drink order and when she returned she took our meal order. We ordered the shrimp, escargot with mushrooms and Parmesan cheese as well as... More

The atmosphere here is very intimate and the staff are warm and friendly and efficient. We came for my wife's birthday dinner and were pampered like royalty. The food was not only delicious and prepared properly but priced well and served up hot. Very enjoyable and we will be back as often as we can.

This place is a quiet, small, dimly lite restaurant that offers high end service and food for a very low price. You have to love garlic to eat here, fair warning. The only down side is that you MUST have reservations and a few days in advance normally. I suggest the egg stracciatella soup and ask to have a bowl... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant with our friends for a 50th birthday celebration. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were aware that there was another seating after ours. As has been our past experience, the food was exceptional but the attitude of the waitress was not. From the moment she approached our table her comments centred on... More

I'm never disappointed in the Cook Shop. Have gone there for 20+ years and have never had a bad experience or meal. Love the garlic smell!
