Our take away dinners on New Year’s Eve were excellent! My escargot was so delicious, and my hubby’s lamb chops were fantastic. See you soon! Happy New Year!

We had made reservations for 10 family members for a boxing day dinner. The storm of Christmas 2022 prevented out of town members from driving to Wellington and we had to cancel. Thanks to East and Main they opened up the next day to accommodate...us. The service and food was outstanding. Thankyou for saving the day... we'll all be back again.More

Was there celebrating a friend's birthday while visiting in Prince Edward County. The staff were very attentive and friendly, the cocktails and food excellent. One of the best restaurant meals I have had in a long time. Would highly recommend this place.

Had the Blackened Atlantic Salmon which was very nice but the very plain white (jasmine) rice served with it was absolutely cold. The salad accompanying it was good. But we noticed that a 20% gratuity was automatically added to the bill, which we weren't aware...of. THEN, when we went to pay at the cash the waitress didn't seem to be aware of this gratuity charge practice, pretending to know nothing about it. So we would have ended up paying a 40% tip, if we hadn't been careful.More

Our salmon is served with an orzo pasta salad and is meant to be cold. We are glad you enjoyed the rest of your meal ans our apologies for the bill oversight.

From the moment we came in the door, servers were engaging and welcoming. Our entry of warm olives,almonds and grilled sourdough was unique and very tasteful. Our mains of ravioli and chicken were scrumptious and the sauces on each dishes were perfect! Our servers were...exactly as attentive to ensure a perfect dining experience! Well done and thank you for a lovely time. We also appreciated the local wines on the menu as well as the locally sourced ingredients in the menu selections.More

Just across from our inn. Very delicious food and and extensive and excellent wine list, including 2009 Keint-He Pinot noir. Mushoom ravioli had a rich and flavourful sauce. Service was slow - apparently short-staffed. A heads up or acknowledgement would have been nice.

The food and the service were both amazing. We were in Prince Edward County for the first time and a friend recommended this restaurant. So glad she did. The menu is not extensive but yet it was difficult to decide what to order - it...all sounded delicious. Very generous servings. We enjoyed salad apps - baby gem Caesar salad and heirloom tomato/goat cheese salad. For the mains, my husband ordered the steak dinner and I had the creole jambalaya. We can’t say enough about how delectable the food was. The downside is it can be difficult to get a reservation (book as early in advance as you can) and reservations can only be made by phone. I left a message and waited for a call back to confirm availability, BUT it was well worth it. Make the reservation and enjoy.More

It was a very disappointing meal. The staff was not very friendly. I asked to have my French fries substituted and was told no substitutions. I was allowed to pay for an extra side. I was fine with that. But they insisted that I still...had to take the French fries. Our meals were cold when served. The waitress never came by when the food was served so we could order more wine. It was just very upsetting. My daughter was joking that the place should be called ‘East and Mean’. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.More

Beginning to end was great!! The hostess was funny and friendly, our server was top notch ...on a very busy Saturday night out she remained friendly, very accommodating on requests and extremely fast on getting drinks, dinner and all the extras. She got up on...a chair to get the perfect picture for our memories with no hesitation. off the menu... blackened salmon, steak, burger n frites, ravioli, chicken everyone loved their meals, all came as ordered and served fresh and even more than expected. The steak medium rare was cooked to perfection and the salmon was amazing!! Will definitely be back and highly recommend!!More

I get that times are challenging. Having said that, it is unlikely I will go back to this restaurant. First, they pay little attention to their phone answering system. In the past they have lost our reservation and this year despite two messages they still...messed up our reservation that left us waiting an additional ten minutes resetting a table for one extra person. Why have a messaging system if you don’t use it? Secondly, they need to find a better way to screen COVID vaccination requirements. Having patrons stand outside waiting while someone notices them is rude, not to mention inconsiderate of patrons with mobility challenges. Finally my dinner was just ok, not worth the price paid. The service was also just ok. At the end of our meal our waitress told us to take our time, but then started grabbing plates that we had stacked for her, telling us there were people waiting for our table. Again, very rude, unacceptable service, and not worth returning.More
