Excellent staff and food. Best Caesar salad I ever had. My friend had the chicken piccata and I had the seared scallop special...if it wasn't considered rude I would have licked my plate. We both agreed that we would go back again.

Nothing fantastic, but overall we were happy with our meals. Watch out for the tuna plate. It is so small of a portion that you could not even consider this a starter.

Even for 5:15pm on a week day, this place is very busy. The specialty cocktails were very tasty. The sea scallops with blue polenta was a mixed bag. The sea scallops were cooked perfectly but the polenta was gummy, not the creamy texture it should be. The salmon dish was cooked very well and side was tasty.

Had a delicious dinner with 3 friends. Started by sharing the Korean chicken wing appetizer. I was a little skeptical but they were very good. A tad spicy but just a tad. Our entries were fish tacos, steak tips and chicken under a brick. I had the fish tacos. They were delicious but be aware that the sauce on top... More

Haven't eaten at Romaine's in a year or so. It was always my favorite place to eat. Had dinner there last night. Had scallops on blue corn polenta. Only four scallops and the corn polenta was incredibly bland for $27. My hubby did enjoy the haddock. The restaurant was freezing cold as well. Not sure that we will be running... More

A favorite go-to restaurant. Whether to eat at the bar or celebrate special occasions. The food and service are reliably good. Especially love the fried calamari and creme brûlée.

We have frequented Romaines at least once a month for the last several years. The food is always good, but the service is spotty. It finally dawned on us that we never see the owners of this neighborhood restaurant. There seems to be high turnover of personnel and limited recognition of regular customers. They even eliminated the rewards program. Never... More

We enjoyed all our choices from salad,drinks,main course,to drinks and after dinner coffees. Service was excellent! The prices are high, but I really felt like it was worth it. We will continue to attend with our favorite friends. Thank you

My wife and I went to Romaines last Friday night at the suggestion of another person. Needless to say we were pleasantly surprised. She ordered the Chix Piccatta and I ordered the Tips & Frites. Both dishes were AMAZING!!! The Sirloin Tips were cooked to perfection and had a great seasoned taste. My wife loved her Chix Piccatta. She cleaned... More

I won't leave a long review for this one. I will just say that I highly recommend this place if you want consistently tasty, well put together food in Northborough. Although there are some dishes that I have been more in love with than others, I can't say that I have ever had a dish here that I have not... More
