An excellent representation of Italian eatery. We arrived as a large party of 13 and food delivery was prompt and excellent. From service to food quality, I will be back. As a friendly warning, the carrot cake is not big, its monstrous.

We went for a thanksgiving weekend lunch and had a great experience. The venue was surprisingly expansive and charming; quite suitable for events. We started with carpaccio (thickly shaved parmesan, fresh arugula) and a delicious calamari (sundried tomatoes and shiitakes were a great counterpoint and not overpowering of the calamari). We immediately honed in on the house made pastas which... More

This was our first time at LockKeepers, but it wont be our last. Nate was our server and he was fantastic! The quality of the food was amazing. My son and I both had the black garlic gnocchi with Maine lobster, it was incredible! We both raved about it. My husband had the lasagna, and my other son had the... More

Dinner with the cousins is always a good time. So glad we chose to come here. The atmosphere and decor was beautiful. Sherrie was very attentive and happy to help us make our dinner selections. The food was wonderful.

Stopped by restaurant with a work colleague and enjoyed a series of appetizers including a delicious arugula salad, nicely dressed with Parmesan slices with a fresh lemon dresssing. Mussels were delicious as was the beef carpaccio. Drinks were decent sized and service was excellent. Sat in bar area which offered a comfortable vibe and a few flat screens to watch... More

Every single menu item was delectable, perfect temperature, and expertly prepared. I was there with a party of 16 - so I had a bite of almost everything on the menu! I have eaten at Michelin 3-starred restaurants around the world, and I believe Lockkeepers ranks among the best. The service was impeccable, the ambiance perfect - not too formal,... More

Wanted good food with nice ambience. Lockkeepers fit the bill. We shared Frank's Salad, with gorgonzola, pickled onion, roasted red peppers, greens - very tasty. For our main course, we got Pork Saltimbocca with fontina, prosciutto, risotto cake. It was extremely good. Also, got the Black Garlic Gnocchi, with Maine lobster, leeks and goat cheese cream - delicious! Alas, by... More

My husband surprised me with a date here for our 11th wedding anniversary. It was amazing. The staff, service, and food were all superb. Really enjoyed the ambient atmosphere and the attentiveness of our waitress. We both ordered steak and it was cooked to perfection. Definitely would come back for a special occasion.

This spot is top notch. We go fairly often. Can't believe I haven't raved before. Just so lovely. I love Frank's salad to start, often share. Bread, tapenade = wonderful. Fresh made pasta dishes (seasonal favorites) are delightful. Steaks are beautifully prepared. Service is professional, attentive and informative on the offerings. Valet is free. Ambiance is charming.

We haven't been to Lockkeepers in ages. Pleasant surprise. Spacious dining room in rustic style. Friendly and efficient wait staff. Drink and wine order taken promptly. Sausage stuffed pepper was chock full of tasty sausage and a mild-mid tasting pepper. Yum. Cesar and Arugula salads fresh. Calamari with sun dried tomatoes delicious. Pork chop Saltimbocca outstanding. Prosciutto and cheese well... More
