LockKeepers Restaurant Review

: Polished wood, plush carpet and elegant but comfortable décor welcome guests to LockKeepers. The menu features a myriad of house-made Italian fare (think pastas, rich sauces and freshly baked breads and pastries) alongside steaks, chops and seafood. Start with the beef carpaccio drizzled with white truffle oil. Then refresh your palate with the salad of heirloom tomatoes. Follow it with an al dente pasta: lobster-filled ravioli topped with a creamy lobster sauce, limoncello fettuccine surrounded by shrimp, spring onions and asparagus, or lasagna. We also recommend the veal Marsala and long-bone pork chops. For dessert, there’s oft-changing gelati and sorbetti, but the tiramisu is a must-have mainstay. LockKeepers’ wine list is well crafted. Cocktails are handcrafted using traditional and specialty techniques and ingredients, resulting in libations such as the basil peach Bellini. Table service is educated, friendly and efficient. In the summer, enjoy the views from the patio or reserve one of the private spaces, including a sommelier room for intimate meals.
