We had reservations for a Thursday night, and I'm glad we did. The place was full at 7:30pm. Parking was easy in the lot behind the building. I had the 1/2 shrimp entree with polenta and roasted red pepper sauce, and it was delicious! It...More

We have been coming to Duckworth for over five years and the quality of food has been persistently fantastic. Must try their Lobster Risotto and their Seared Duck Breast. For mushroom lovers, their mushroom soup is exquisitely balanced.

This is a wonderful place to bring your wife for a special occasion. The service is top notch and the food is tasty and elegant. Our dinner was delicious. It is best to make a reservation ahead of time.

Small, intimate restaurant with outstanding food, much locally sourced. Everything on the menu is amazing...husband is chef, wife makes unbelievable desserts. Open only for dinner and busy, particularly during the summer season. Full bar selection and excellent wines...highly recommend.

We just returned from our first visit to Duckworths. We found plenty of parking spots available along the side streets near this bistrot. We made 6:00 reservations two weeks in advance, and were promptly seated. Everyone was so friendly and helpful with suggestions. My husband...More
