We met the owner when he was working at the Chatham Bars Inn on Cape Cod and traveled about an hour with another couple (friends with the owner's mother) for our first meal at Home. Personal acquaintance aside, we had a wonderful meal. We sat in the back room away from the bar and it was quiet with lovely, non-intrusive... More

Our meals were very good (salmon over salad and a chicken wrap. Most of the items on the menu are sandwiches, wraps and salads. Their entree offerings were fairly limited. But the food we ordered was excellent. The restaurant has a large bar area, which was packed the night we visited (Thursday), but the dining area at 6:45pm was empty.

My sister and I headed to Branford for some R&R. We stayed at a cute B&B on the water and before we arrived I did some research on restaurants in the area. Home got great reviews so we decided to try it and boy, were we spoiled. The food was fabulous. The restaurant is set up with three sections. When... More

Food was terrific and the server was completely on-the-ball and attentive. Our group of 6 stayed for a longer than normal time because it was a gathering of friends who don't see one another often, but were never made to feel hurried or unwelcome.

I wish we had eater. Here earlier in the week of our vacation - we would have gone back multiple times! The service was excellent, the atmosphere was inviting (lighting, seating) and the food was outstanding. We had the hummus to start and it was so tasty; the crisp pita triangles and fresh carrot strips were perfect accompaniments. I had... More

Just kidding - unfortunately we live too far away to make it our new favorite place. But we would if we could! The place is terrific. Nice atmosphere (choice of bar/bistro, comfy lounge or traditional dining room for seating) with jazz Muzak playing. Very good service and awesome food! I had the Angus sirloin tip gnocchi - wonderful! My wife... More

The chef here is a genius. I've been to many restaurants and I normally find a few things that I really want to order and spend about 5 minutes deciding between them. Here I was at a total loss because absolutely everything on this menu sounds absolutely delicious. Lobster Rockefeller Mac and cheese pretty much sealed the deal. Top that... More

Not only do you immediately feel at "Home" here, but the menu is always great. They have a seasonal menu so it's always new! I couldn't wait to try the new Green Pea Risotto. I didn't leave anything on the plate! It was so delicious! Also, the huckleberry lemonade in a mason jar was to die for! The servers are... More
