My wife and I recently dined at Creative Cooking in Westbrook Ct, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We opted to sit in the formal New Orleans style dining room which is decorated in a classic period style. Other options for seating include the more casual bar area and the outside front porch. The dinner menu is quite extensive and contains... More

We had a lovely dinner here. The best part was a Thai shrimp appetizer. The meals were quite substantial- we each had a gumbo, one with chicken and one with shrimp, in a bowl with a lot of rice and beans. Very tasty, but the two of us could have shared one main dish. Service was very attentive; nice ambience.

The food and service were excellent. The interior of the restaurant was beautiful, but it was a warm summer night and we decided that an outdoor table on the front porch would be nice, and it was. The Gumbo soup (chicken or seafood -we had both) was outstanding. Don't miss the tomato vinaigrette salad dressing. Main courses were substantial and... More

Not much to not like. The food is great and the amount is adequate. A little pricy but the food is worth it.

We got reservations at the last minute for the corner booth in the restaurant. My wife and I wore our wedding dresses their and everyone gave compliments. The staff was very polite including the owner. The food was very authentic. I have never tasted bourbon chicken and red beans & rice that tasted that good in my life. It was... More

Nice restaurant in an old house with great food and service. What more can you want! Live music some nights which sounded pretty good.

I came here last year for brunch. It was gross so I never returned. Some friends really wanted to come for dinner, so I decided to give it a second chance. Glad I did!! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was hip. We went on a Friday evening while a live band was playing in the bar. Was fun... More
