We tried this on a groupon offering and very very pleased with the local atmosphere. Certainly exceeded my expectations. Chris and Joe have been working on this for 5 years and have a great niche offering. The food is excellent and well presented. Although the menu is limited, it is sufficient to give variety in it's offering. Try it....I think... More

OMG. This was such s great meal it's hard to put it in words. First off, book in advance, this place is super busy and you need a reservation . The decor is a bit bohemian but the food is divine. I had the pear salad with goat cheese... superb. My husband had the beef tenderloin that we would rate... More

We were a group of 16. I had a fennel salad and a curry lentil main. Both were free and tasty. Best meal in the area over our 3 day conference. Service is a little slow, so be careful if you are in a hurry but do drop in.

My second time going this month as the food is delicious and ambiance is great. Problem is that it seems little energy is spent on training the servers/ ensuring they can handle the table load. The servers I've had thus far are really kind and helpful but don't seem to have much regard for service standards. It was a full... More

We bought a Groupon to try this place. It was nice to go for a summer drive to and around Wakefield. We like that the food is locally sourced. We liked sitting outside on the patio. We do wish it was easier to see in advance what was on the menu. We had the burgers and they were quite good.... More

I have been to Chez Eric before, but this was the first time in a while. I had a pan seared trout, while my guest had lamb... The trout was excellent, large, with a delicious marmalade glaze, and great fresh potatoes and veggies to accompany. The lamb was good, but not as good as the trout. We ate outside in... More

We had a Groupon that gave us a $20.00 discount. I had the beef tenderloin and my wife the lamb chops. Both were tender and enjoyable along with the broccoli (less so the beans which I found to be undercooked but my wife enjoyed) and mashed potatoes au jus. My wife had mashed and seasoned sweet potatoes, of which I... More

The little yard is great but I was cold and decided to go inside. Anyways, yard is a 4 out of 5. However being a little bit of a foodie, there is no wow factor and certainly won't be dreaming of the plates I ordered or tasted. So my husband had the duck which I obviously tried but lacked some...

We had a good, quick and very nice dinner in the pretty garden. Service was super-friendly and food arrived very fast, which was great as we were very hungry! Good menu variety.
