From the time we walked in and couldn't get a table I was suspect. Went to the bar and both staff disappeared. Let me explain that we were both dressed appropriately for this upscale place and just wanted to relax and catch up over a dinner by the water. Well, the restaurant host showed us a great table and all... More

Great location but that's the only positive comment I can say about our recent dinner. The service has really gone down hill and the food was just okay. When ordering our wine the waiter suggested we drink the bottle of white quickly since there were no more wine chillers available. It took 25 minutes to get a cold basket of... More

We ate here for dinner recently and were disappointed with the prices and the quality of the food. $9 for a glass of wine or a cocktail; average price of dinner was $30. Salads are not included in the price. Dinner servings were less than adequate. The shrimp dinner included only four large shrimp, along with some lemony rice that... More

Although the location is beautiful, I wouldn't go there again to have lunch or dinner. The food, although presented nicely, is just not good; overcooked, poor quality food. The service is also poor with the hostess being so rude, we almost left before we dined. Drinks are way overpriced, as is the food. Much better places to dine on the... More

We stopped here after a long day at a summer festival in another town. We ate on the outdoor patio. The restaurant affords views of Long Island Sound. It is a pleasant way to while away a few hours. We tried clam strips with fries and Cesar Salad with shrimp. Everyone loved the food, portion and quality. The waitstaff is... More

Had dinner last night in the main dining room. View is spectacular! That's where it ends. Food was bland and unimaginative. My tenderloin was tough and accompanied sides stone cold. One exception was the New England clam chowder, which was thick and creamy. Server was very professional, efficient and saved the evening by taking my entree off the bill.Would have... More

My prior experience with this restaurant was lunch which was very good. This time five us went there for dinner and had a wonderful meal. The resort itself is very nice and the dining room is beautiful and dramatic because it's entered by walking down a flight of stairs into an airy bright and elegant room with large windows with...

We went to the Goodspeed Opera House and were looking for a nice meal to end our day. My husband researched area restaurants and found this gem. For this caliber restaurant it is not at all expensive but certainly five star! Admittedly we have been here only once, but our meals were extraordinary, the service wonderful and the views spectacular.... More
