We made our annual visit to Arborvine for my birthday . The ambience is delightful with the antique decor. The hospitality is top notch from the hostess to the wait staff. The food is superior but the only complaint was that in the room where...More

We had the Caesar Salad, Capons and Duck with the Duck breast being excellent and the Capons just very good. We look forward to a repeat visit and a check of some of their local seafoods.

We stopped here for an afternoon break and enjoyed a cocktail, a beer from Deepwater, and the calamari. The calamari were perfect. Crisp, lightly breaded, and delicious. I will come back for these many times!

We were very impressed with the service and menu selection. Our salads were so fresh with a variety of local ingredients. My husband said his crab cakes were the best he had ever eaten. My halibut was truly delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

A special place! Staff remember you they are friendly but not 'gushing' or overbearing - special rooms mean privacy and a feeling that this is 'your place'. Decore is one of good taste and simplicity. All in all it is a place you can enjoy...More
