My wife and I dined here with some family members and the meal and service were all adequate. Nice middle-of-the-road place. The 4 of us had appetizers, wine and entrees, all of which came to just under $150. Priced about right for the quality of the food, which was good. The ambience in the restaurant is nice and generally pretty quiet. Our server was attentive but not pushy or overbearing. Overall, we had a nice dining experience. I've seen other reviews that indicated the staff really rushed people through their meals. This was not our experience at all. We were perfectly comfortable to take our time and we were there on a Friday evening. We've been here a number of times and have never felt rushed.

This restaurant is living on its past reputation. It has been going down hill and now
The Briars is now at the bottom of the hill. Will not frequent it anymore.
The waitress was in a rush to take our order and rushed us through the meal. She
was leaving at 9pm along with the rest of the restaurant which emptied out.
Decor has not been refreshed in over 40 years and the food is at best unimpressive
and tasteless. (no flavor) Pappardelle stuck to itself, veal tasteless, steak was just ok,
salad thrown together, and presentation was non existent.
To say it's not what it used to be, would be an understatement.
Will not be back and advise others to do the same.

we were seated for our 7PM reservation and then things went downhill
rushed us to order and when we finally received just the 2 soups they were cold. the 4 salads came while we sent the soup back which came back lukewarm, really???
Then the wait began
at 8:30 we finally asked the man in the vest who appeared to be somewhat in charge but was sitting drinking at the bar while his frantic staff attempted to keep up with a backed up kitchen, this exchange prompted him to send the harried waitress over to offer an excuse and a drink. Our table had ordered soda so a drink was not what we were looking for, we wanted our dinner. 20 minutes later we got up and left.
NO ONE NOTICED!!! too bad it used to be good, Stay away!
