We've had a 2nd home here for over 20 years. When I come back to town, it's time to gather with family & friends. For lunch, Ingredients is the best place in town, hands down. Am surprised it doesn't hit your overall ranking higher but my guess is because it is a bit pricier than other lunch spots. However, it is definitely worth it! Less informal but also good for lunch is Cafe Cravings. For dinner, Ingredients & Aqua (open only for dinner) are the top spots. Another new one called Margaux's Table (open for dinner only) looks good but I haven't tried it yet. Just thought folks would like the opinion of someone who has eaten at all these spots for years.

You can’t go wrong with Ingredients. We had friends from out of town and decided to go back. We hadn’t been in a while. It’s quaint, the service is always great and the food excellent.

Ingredients is a good local restaurant that I can depend on for good service, good food and being reasonably priced. Ingredients did not disappoint me this week for a casual lunch with a classic tomato basil soup and a grilled cheese sandwich (great on a cool day or any day). I would recommend Ingredients.

I had not eaten here before and am always anxious to try a new place in WBL. A friend suggested we eat lunch here with a friend visiting from South Carolina. The fish tacos were fantastic- and the staff took great care to accommodate our friend who needed a gluten free meal.

The last couple of times we've been here there was nothing new or tempting on the menu. Lots of pasta dishes and some interesting salads, but would have loved a nice lamb chop or pork done in an interesting way. There was a fish special on a warm potato salad. The potato salad was interesting and very good but the fish was just so-so. Worst was the service. We sat for 20 minutes without anyone coming to take a drink order. We had to ask 3 times for olive oil for the bread. We probably won't be back.
