New Year's Eve Special Menus & Offers
We are offering a pre-fix ala carte dinner. More details to come soon!!
Food was very good, though a bit pricey. The staff was very accommodating for my daughter's dietary needs. portions could be bigger but all of the food was perfectly prepared. Ambience was great in the restaurant and the grounds around it.
Everything we ate off of the lunch menu was delicious and filling. Everyone in my party loved the experience.
Food is always fabulous at Rats - totally understand that they are doing an outstanding job in terms of staying safe.
Just wish there was a communication about how cold is is inside as all the doors & windows are open.
Rats is wonderful even with the restrictions of Covid. I have eaten there twice recently and it is a treat. This week I had the soup special, cream of mushroom. I highly recommend it. We had 2 different sandwiches--turkey crossant and chicken salad. Lovely!
Always our favorite place
Food was great
Amazing setting! But the food is just fine - not great. Ok, but it misses the mark for being anything special. And, service was only so-so. Sort of hard to justify the price then, except the setting is so spectacular!
Socially distanced tables. I perfect setting. Ample portions. Nice waiter. All good ( escargot a tad bland - took home and doctored w garlic & parsley - just saying )
Great meal and excellent service. They have a large beautiful patio with tables well spaced.
It was a wonderful socially distanced thanksgiving place. The grounds for Sculpture was a beautiful backdrop. Service was a little awkward but I think the waiters were new.
We had Thanksgiving dinner in the restaurant and it was outstanding. Impeccable service, great drink menu and an incredible meal.
Since we couldn't join our families for Thanksgiving during Covid, we went to Rats for their four-course Thanksgiving prix fixe menu, and thought it was lovely. Each dish was well prepared, from a butternut squash soup to caesar salad to a pasta with wild mushrooms to turkey with all the fixings. I would absolutely recommend Rats for a special occasion.
The Entire Meal was simply Perfect!
The Preparation and the Meal was Wonderful
My Compliments to the Chef.
The Service was simply Outstanding!
My compliments to the Staff at Rats.
Thank you Yale for the lovely review!!
Perfect as always !
Absolutely beautiful place! Service and food were both very good despite the fact that it was Thanksgiving.
Birthday ... room was cold and very bland no pictures
great food in an excellent environment , highly recommend
It was the first time I went there. I took my girlfriend and we were thoroughly impressed. We enjoyed also looking outside and seeing the statues.
A little too cold inside bar area which cuts down on ambience, heaters needed
Always enjoy going and at these difficult times you’re doing your best.
A lovely place for lunch - nice atmosphere - great french onion soup and hot apple cider!
Such a lovely experience - was sat in a corner on a beautiful couch. Server was lovely. Food was fast and delicious - had the branzino and mother had french onion soup and side salad. Yummy bread served before and the restaruant is soooo unique! Outside seating looked like it had heaters and it was nice to see the sculpture and coy pond
Could use a few more heat lamps. Was just bit cold.
Otherwise was great!
Ambiance was unrivaled sitting outside under moonlit night beside a lit and reflective pond view. Service was excellent
Beautiful and rustic atmosphere. Absolutely wonderful.
Beautiful place, great service, unique atmosphere..
Gourmet food and reasonably priced.
Romantic upscale elegant
Beautiful surrounding and outdoor dining available. Food was expensive but delicious.
Excellent venue. The koi pond is beautiful and food, ambiance and service were exceptional
Pleasant, beautiful, wonderful food.
We really enjoyed having dinner at Rats following a 4+ hour walking tour at GFS. A few drinks were just what we needed following the long walking day. The menu and overall service was great! The food was prepared in adequate sized portions to allow a good meal and then enough remained for some to take home for later. We have been to Rats previously and this was even better than the last time. We hope to be back again in the not too distant future.
We've been to Rat's before and I'm glad it is still very enjoyable. We were celebrating two birthdays and we went for lunch. We ordered the cheese and charcuterie plate. We were a party of four and it was just right as a starter. Steak Frites, burger and turkey croissant all very good and plentiful. No room for dessert. We did have a full bottle of Prosecco so the tab was rich but that was our choice. Service was good and friendly staff made it a fine celebration.
Amazing food, scenery and building are beautiful, service was excellent. Covid precautions seemed good and outside area was comfortable with heaters.
great place, wonderful ambience and the food choices were both creatively inspired and just as importantly, quite delicious! Very friendly and attentive staff and the layout of the restaurant is absolutely lovely
Always a great experience and meal at Rats! We love it!
Such a lovely setting, and the food was amazing as always. Even though it was cold, we had bundled up in layers and did not feel the cold at all.
Rat’s is not only beautiful, the food is delicious, there is an excellent selection of wines and the front end and wait staff are professional and knowledgeable.
Beautiful restaurant, amazing stuff, delicious food! I’ve been longing to have a dinner this good!
What a wonderful birthday meal for my sweet husband! I was worried it was going to be too crowded and not covid safe, but it was perfect. They took every precaution and we felt really comfortable, they spread out the diners throughout the restaurant and we were far enough away. The food was superb as usual. We have been hesitant to go out but this was a big day and it was nice to feel spoiled with a meal out
We had the lunch special for restaurant week! Food was delicious!
Thank you for dining with us!!
