Good Eats, long wait

Something Special has great food, that is undeniable. The service sometimes in my opinion is slow. I don't always have lots of time to wait and most times things are ok. But there have been several times in the past that I've had to ask for my meal to go because I've run out of time. So if this... read more

The food is good but a bit overpriced. I will be honest and say that we have only eaten there once after the new owners took over the rest. You need to ask a great deal of questions before you place your order as when I ordered a greek salad, I did not ask enough questions and had anchovies in... More

Have had lunch there a couple of times. Food was good, prices are reasonable but the dessert was wonderful. A type of chocolate cake with a delicious filling. It was presented as it was done by a pastry chef.

Outdoor sitting on a nice day is enjoyable . Putnam CT is relatitively quiet so not much traffic noise . There is a restaurant across the street which also has Alfredo dinning . Waitress was nice . Folks at the next table had other items from the menu and both asked for a doggi bag so the portions appear good... More

The portions are big, the variety is great and the atmosphere is nice. The outdoor seating is very nice also but the inside is more comfortable. Always a good meal for a decent price.

BEST ONES I'VE EVER HAD! Fresh, REAL ingredients, perfection! I've been coming here for 15 years. Since they've re-done their facade it has improved a lot, but the food has always been great. Their taco wraps were always a favorite of my friends, the Asian Chicken Salad is by far my favorite salad, ever!
