Very Good, But Not Great

While visiting family in the area, we had dinner at The Recovery Room. Located close to Lawrence and Memorial Hospital, this is a nice little restaurant that specializes in Italian meals and pizza. The dinning room is light and casual and the servers are friendly and helpful. I wanted to order... read more

Recovery Room is one of my favorite places to go on a Friday night, especially in the winter as there is not an outdoor seating area. If you like salads, bistro dishes and gourmet pizza, this is your place. My favorite is the Capri Salad with Parmesan chicken, greens, and corn- YUM! My husband prefers their bistro pasta dishes. Great... More

New London is just down the road from Mystic, CT and while we loved the Seaport, we wanted to get away from the tourist traps. The Recovery Room proved a delightful find. Recommended to us as a place locals eat, the pizza and appetizers were reasonably priced and had enough of a coastal twist (Clam pizza! It was good!) to... More

We just moved to the area and this is our go to place for pizza and cocktails. Outstanding customer service (Denise & Patty) is consistent and the food and drink well worth it. Highly recommend this place!

One of the few pizza plaves tjat dont use a frozen gluten-free crust. They make their own and it is one of the better ones I have tasted. They have gluten-free pasta options too.

Arrived on a thurs night after 7pm.. Crowded but seated after 10 min there was just the two of us. The food is always outstanding however we can def relate to the lack of interaction/interest in their customers. We witnessed our waitress on her cellphone having complete conversations while sitting while we waited with our drinks empty. Also our meals... More

You can hang out with the Lawrence and Memorial medical crowd. Big deal. The food is mediocre. It is also rather crowded.

I stopped by for quick lunch with a colleague. Sauce for pasta marinara was yummy; pasta itself was under done and I would have loved bread for sauce. Salad for starter was decent, not too much dressing. My colleague enjoyed well made turkey club for lunch. You could do worse.

Great salad and pizza close to New London hospital, hence the name. Good service. Some creative choices on menu. Convenient for hospital visits but worth a trip anytime.

If you like the idea of the Soup Nazi, then this is the restaurant for you. Your waitress will snarl at you, drop your food off as if you are an annoyance, never to be seen again. Beware of leaving an appropriately small tip though. Management allows the staff to refuse to wait on customers that have previously failed to... More
