Flatbread Company(978) 834-9800
CUSTOMER COMMENTS: Hey! Flatbread pizza company is a GREAT restaurant! Forget all those other pizza joints, even if they do deliver. Flatbread has the BEST pizza I've ever eaten. And you can take that to the bank. Plus the ambience is wonderful. The restaurant is in a converted mill building in downtown Amesbury near the falls on the Pow Wow river, and the place is cozy, funky, and down-to-earth. No corporate logos anywhere. Plus they use natural, organic ingredients; excellent salads, desserts, and wine and beer. My wife and I don't go anywhere else for pizza any more.

Italian-American Fare
Customer comments: This was perhaps the worst dining experience in my lifetime. Pasta with Campbell's Tomato Soup would be better. My wife and I tried it again saying lets give it another try. Worse than the first time. The restaurant is either too big, the staff untrained or the chef is from Japan. This place has never heard of quality control. Be warned stay away and tell your friends. Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me!

Grassfield's Food & Spirits
207 N Main Street, Andover, MA 01810-3109
CUSTOMER COMMENTS: I like steak and I love salmon. As far as I'm concerned, this is the best restaurant around. Their honey-glazed salmon is always Excellent. We are just back from Norway (where salmon is THE business) and while eating salmon THERE, we were longing for salmon from Grassfields. The Filet Mignon or steak tips are mouth watering. They have an extensive wine menu and the servers/ bartenders are always first-rate. If they would install outdoor seating (for the warm spring/summer nights), it would be PERFECT. But as far as what they DO, they do it flawlessly.

Consistantly good food. Great family restaurant
CUSTOMER COMMENTS: APRIL 2002: Had dinner recently at CedarCrest in Lawrence. The food was tremendous and the pricing was outstanding. The meals include soup, salad, main course, potatoes/rice and vegetable, coffee/tea and dessert. I had a wonderful lamb chop dinner (biggest lamb chops I have ever seen) and it cost $16 for the full dinner. We will go back n a regular basis. I highly recommend it.

CUSTOMERS COMMENTS: Beware of the Veal Cutlet Parmesan. It's Not Veal. It's pounded out Pork.
They don't even have the courtesy to mention it on the menu and the wait staff won't alert you.
We went on a Monday night and four of the party of six ordered the haddock. It smelled so bad we had to return them. The waitress was appologetic but the management didn't show their face.
Never again
Customer Comments: Must be a matter of timing & shifts, have eaten at Kitty's many times over the past year & found the food as well as the service good, especially by one waitress, who after noticing my steak was cooked to perfection waited while my boyfriend checked his & other members of our party checked their dinners. She returned with 2 steaks perfectly cooked & delicious and took time to converse. Especially fond of the broiled haddock w/bread crumbs. Definitely returning.
Debbie of Wilmington
CUSTOMER COMMENTS: It is true about the veal cutlet parmesan. It really is pork cutlets. How can they get away wth that? We just got back from there this evening. Their tomato sauce is always great and for the most part they haven't lost their reputation..........but c'mon......what's with the 'veal cutlet' we're paying for and not receiving? I'm really upset about the 'false advertising' and paying for something we are not receiving. I think someone should make a phone call either to the manager in Kitty's or maybe take it further. I mean what if someone was allergic to pork? They would have a law suit on their hands. Shame on them.
