Has anyone been to Lyric Restaurant in Yarmouth Port, Mass. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

    Yes, we went back this winter after I heard that Chef Toby Hill, formally head chef at Pain D'Avignon, was now at Lyric. Experience was mostly good, but not without flaws. Here's my report and some comments from others.

      So now you have me wondering if I should go. I was also looking at Five Bays Bistro, Wimpys,and Barnstable restaurant & tavern.

        Wimpy's is okay for a Family Style restaurant. Not great, but not bad. Barnstable Tavern is VERY hit or miss, mainly miss. And I haven't been to Five Bays in so long it's not fair to comment, although my experience there was very good.

            maybe 10 miles east I highly recommend Fin. Ask for the table on top of the stairs for 3-4 people....

              Almost next door is Inaho for fabulous sushi. The best on the Cape and several exchange students from Japan have told me it's even better than what they get back home. Nice room in an antique Cape also. I wouldn't totally sign off on Lyric yet, however, as chef Toby is very well respected and it was his first week or so at Lyric when we last ate there. Fin in Dennis village has great food but I'm not a big fan of the rooms as phelana is.

                    Ok, we made it last night. We started with a bottle of Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand. Shared a bowl of gingered carrot soup with crime fraiche and pea greens. It was very good and we both enjoyed the ginger. I kept dipping the focaccia into it. I had the hangar steak with blue cheese butter and Lincoln log fries. It was excellent and cooked to my liking and the portion was size with fine with me. I loved the way the fries were stacked like Lincoln logs. It made a beautiful presentation. My partner had the mushroom pasta with sausage and fennel frawns on top. It really had great flavor and the portion size was fine. We passed on the dessert menu , I thought it was boring. Also, the entree menu was very limited in my opinion.
