We didn't know much about this restaurant before stepping inside on a bitterly cold night just minutes after it opened. It was warm and inviting and menu looked enticing. And it was just what we needed after a long day in the cold. There were...More

We moved from the Upper Valley in 1986, and have been back a number of times. We have very fond memories of D'Artagnan's back in the day... For this visit, we tried to find a similar fine dining experience to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary....More

Bait n switch....didn't come close to living up to what the WebSite "promised. Waiter was "off"...food delivered in wrong order...sometimes without basic ingredient. We tried...won't try again.

Carpenter and Main is a quaint and elegant restaurant with delicious food. Our service was great as well. While the price isn't cheap, the food is tasty. We dined here on Dartmouth graduation weekend which meant that they had a special set menu. They had...More
