Nantucket Restaurants

Company of the Cauldron

Fodor's Review

In this tiny dining room, a sconce-lighted haven of architectural salvage, chef-owner All Kovalencik issues only one prix-fixe menu per evening (Monday's, priced slightly higher, is lobster-centric). Fans gladly forgo choice when the chef's choice is invariably so dead-on. Rundowns of the weekly roster are available online, and a typically tantalizing lineup might span rosemary-skewered shrimp with Tuscan melon, beef Wellington made with wild mushroom duxelle, and a combo

of chocolate ganache and chocolate gelato (don't hold back!). While cherry-picking the menu for recurrent faves, cognoscenti also tend to book on nights when Mary Keller plays her celestial harp.

No Choices -- No Worries

This was a truly memorable dining experience. The set menu is posted for the week outside the restaurant and online, but based on our experience I would imagine everything is good. We had beef wellington, which was excellent. There is also a very nice wine list to compliment the dinner selections. The vanilla panna cotta dessert was also delicious. The atmosphere is very cozy -- almost like eating in someone's home. The service was a little

stilted, but this may just be a function of everyone in the restaurant eating at once.

A Bargain!

Probably one of the finest dining experiences I've enjoyed. I chose this restaurant based on the excellent reviews, and both my date and I were thrilled. Be prepared to sit a little close to your neighbors, but the atmosphere lends itself to privacy. The service was excellent, albeit a little dry. Smile and enjoy yourself! We did!

I'll have what she's having!

Don't be put off by the single choice of nightly fare, this is the best meal we had on Nantucket. Each course was better than the one before and a perfect complement. Our entree was was fantastic! Call ahead to hear menu. Ambience is dark, low-key, romantic-- but not necessarily quiet.
