Maybe it was a little ambiance, maybe the service, maybe the food...but I found all of it to be fantastic! It was a delightful lunch, certainly one of the better ones in recent memory. The grilled vegetable panini was large and delicious, the au jus sandwich was well liked, and the ice tea fresh brewed. The server was really friendly,... More

Been to Bailey's quite a few times over the years and I must say that our most recent visit was exceptional. The farm to table concept prepared by a CIA trained chef is exactly what this community needed. Most of the restaurants in Ridgefield are generally OK, but the food preparation and bountiful flavors at Bailey's was more akin to... More

If you haven't been to Bailey's in a while you will be in for a treat/surprise. Farm to table menus seem to be the rage in leading restaurants and Bailey's has joined the club....with positive results. The menu is flexible depending on season and availability and the chef is not afraid to take risks. If you are a fan of... More

The meal was very good. One of the better I've had in Ridgefield in a while, but the prices are extremely high. Dinner for 2 was almost $100 when everything was tallied up, so it's not a place that I'd go to more than a couple of times per year. But they do a good job. The place is absolutely... More

I have been frequenting this place for some time now. The fresh combination of delightful fresh foods amazes me each time. Obviously the winter is a challenge for fresh produce but they consistently do the best with what is available. The spring/summer/fall menus are the best in town. Local produce of the freshest available is the norm here. Consistently flavorful.... More

My husband and I had such a pleasant meal at Baileys Backyard. I was a bit nervouse bringing him here as my husband is very picky about his food. In that he is truly a meat and potatoe man. Vegetables beside brocolli hardly ever pass his lips. But on seeing the menu even he was hard to chose between all... More

Went for brunch with a girlfriend. Menu had a nice variety of typical Americana foods with a fresh flair. Innovative and casual. Service was very good.

Bailey's has been in town for a number of years, but just recently gave themselves a makeover which included their menu, as well. Love the new additions, the service is always wonderful, and the new décor is cozy and inviting.

There are too many restaurants in Ridgeifeld and most of them are just O.K. so its a great treat to find that the newly conceptualized Baileys is so good. I used to eat there for its straightforward food but now its completely redone. The CIA trained chef has a sure hand with all the courses. The pork belly appetizer melts... More

We went to Bailey's before going to a show. The place is very nice and cozy. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The wine list was good and we had a Cotes de Rhone that was tasty. They are family friendly and had plastic cups with straws for the kids. I like the farm to table concept so I... More
