Thought we would give Apricot's one more try for Easter. What a mistake. This is an unfriendly, poorly run restaurant with food that was barely eatable. We were served room temperature white wine and butter that had been half eaten by other diners before placed on our table. When we asked for replacements, we were given a look of astonishment - how dare we! The crab cake was made with imitiation crab - which is unconscionable in this restaurant. It consisted of all imitiation crab and breadcrumbs, producing only a salty taste. The lobster/crab bisque was served with drippings on the sides of the bowl with some hardened bisque on the rim. Not very appetizing.....The entres didn't fare much better. Leg of lamb was very tough and the promised mint sauce mentioned in the menu was not on this dish. And when we asked the waiter about it he said he hadn't tasted the dish so he didn't know what kind of sauce was supposed to be on the meat. The salmon and the ham entres were totally unforgettable, Boring vegetables with no flavor. The apple chutney that was to accompany the ham turned out to be apple sauce spread over the slice of ham, with a overpowering taste of clove.
Eager to have something good, we ordered three desserts. The lemon bar/torte that came with a very tiny drizzle of carmel had a good lemon taste, although a drizzle is not, in my opinion, ""served with a carmel sauce"" as described in the menu. The apple crisp was burned on the bottom, with absolutely no flavor at all, and the chocolate mousse cake didn't impress.
Our experience was topped by an icy stare given to us by the host as we were leaving. Not one word was said to us - not even a thank you.
Definitely will not be returning to this restaurant.
Pros: Nice views of Farmington River if seated by a window.
Cons: waiters do not know the menu;unfriendly atmosphere
