Ok. When we come up to the Lakes Region we typically eat at Canoe in Center Harbor and we love it there. We went to Lavinia's because the Inn we stayed at included a $50 gift card for dinner at Lavinia's. $25 for Chicken Parmesan is insane- one breast of chicken on a bed of mushy, over cooked pasta. $12...

The evening started out oddly when nobody greeted us at the door and we waited a few minutes for the hostess to show up at the podium. The problem appeared to be that a server did double duty as hostess. After being seated right next to another couple in an otherwise empty room, our server took our drink order which... More

How could we not enjoy ourselves on a lovely July early evening, sipping martinis and eating house made potato chips. This spot was lovely, allowing us a view to the harbor and we had a wonderfully pleasant server who had to go in and out the front door to serve us and check on us. Eric did so easily and... More

Valentines weekend. Table for two at top of stairs in window seat overlooking Mt Washington at dock, lighted at night. So special. Great food, lovely waitress. Wine, dessert. One of the best dining experiences my husband and I have enjoyed in 17 years together.

The folks at Levinia's have done a fine job on all fronts. Starting with the warm and stylish atmosphere that is both casual and upscale at the same time. The service is friendly and professional, and most important the food is very good. I especially like the creativity of the Menu, different than many of the other places in the... More

While staying at the Sutton House B&B in November we tried out Lavinia's just down the road from the B&B. We used the Open Table app to schedule our dining reservation. Within the hour we had a confirmation call and we were given a summary of where we'd be seated. We were lucky and were seated next to one of... More

We live in the surrounding area and have been to Lavinia's a few times. Tonight's dinner was the best. My husband and I both had the haddock entrée and it was delicious!! Started with the Brussels sprouts as an app and that too was delish. Server was friendly. Decor is lovely.

Call ahead for seating availability. It's fun to eat in the bar area too in case they do not have dinning room tables.

On Labor Day Weekend I planned to go to Lavinia's to enjoy a duo that was booked for entertainment. I knew the duo was to play that evening and was excited about being able to have dinner on the patio as I enjoyed the music. However, I called ahead to confirm the start time, only to discover that the restaurant... More

My husband and I visited Lavinia's on a recent trip to Lake Winnipesaukee. We were staying at a nearby B&B so we came here for dinner on one of the two nights we were in the area. Our meal was excellent (I had the salmon on zucchini noodles and my husband had the flat iron steak). Both entrees were perfectly... More
