Express lunch is wonderful. Quick service, nice menu, reasonably priced. Very convenient to Westport shopping. My "go to" restaurant for a quality lunch when I don't have a lot of time.

The food here was good, and the atmosphere was very nice. I would have appreciated a more extensive and thought-out cocktail menu, though.

This downtown Westport restaurant is a favorite of ours; it has several very pleasant areas to dine in: a cozy downstairs bar area that's not too noisy for conversation, a sidewalk terrace, an upstairs dining room with french windows, and, our favorite spot in chilly weather, an upstairs bar where you can watch some dishes cooking in the pizza oven....

Good service, mussels on the salty side, but nice broth. Excellent sauce on tilapia. Tasty, not overly thickened, chowder.

Was only here once but we had a very good meal. We were in a hurry because we had to be somewhere, but despite that, the servers and kitchen responded well and we received prompt courteous service. I had the sea bass and my husband had the lamb chops. Both were very good and didn't take long to prepare. I... More

The only thing on the menu which is still the same from the original menu is the steak and fries with truffle aioli. Other than that, I don't return anymore. I've watched the place go downhill. Menu changes, rude staff. I went there during the week, asked the manager why my unseasoned undressed Caesar salad was worth 26 dollars; he... More

I didn't have a great meal here, but it wasn't awful either. It was higher priced than I would have paid for the quality of the food and service so that a bite out the experience for me. The service wasn't bad, but again it wasn't great. I can only give this restaurant 3 stars even though I was really... More
