The Spread has an interesting menu, capable and friendly service, solid wine list and all in a comfortable space. Live music on Sunday evenings add to it with 50% off wines. Go there soon and often. Get lots of things and share.

Fabulous meal on Fat Tuesday! The special, holiday menu was a delight, and the fish I ordered was prepared perfectly. I will definitely return.

I love the food at the Spread. There's not a bad choice on the menu. I highly recommend ordering several dishes for the table so everyone can share and try different plates. I highly recommend the grilled corn off the cob and meatball apps. The duck medium size plate is to die for. I myself ususally get either the kobe... More

Been meaning to stop in here for some time, and finally did on a Friday night recently. So glad we did! Sat at the bar for a few hours, trying different drinks, appetizers, and $1 happy hour big, fat Copps Island oysters! Yum! For dessert you must try the hazelnut creme brulee...wow! The bar itself is made from hickory slabs...just... More

Whenever I'm in Connecticut, I make it a point to have dinner at The Spread. The menu is creative new American cuisine, you can tell the owners and staff love what they do there. The food is served tapas style. Dishes you must try are the: gnocchi with veal, seared pork belly, Brussels sprouts and the steak tartare. But whatever... More

It's strange to write a review of a local favorite place since I think of Trip Advisor for vacation experiences, but I can't keep quiet about The Spread any longer. I LOVE this restaurant. I have been eating and drinking here since it opened almost three years ago and it has consistently delicious and creative food and a very good,... More

Spread has charm and is inviting once inside. Has a laid back vibe. They give you some yummy cornbread to start with soft creamy butter. The plates are old China all mixed together and the silverware is in a mason jar. We ordered eight plates f or four people which was plenty. Highlight were the pate, the duck, the truffle... More

I went here for brunch this past weekend and was there with 4 adults and two small children. While it was mostly adults, kids were there and it wasn't loud. We got there when it opened and hardly anyone was there, but by the time we left it was completely packed. French toast, bacon and mimosas($8 each or unlimited $19)... More

Went with my family (including) my two year grandson for Father's Day brunch. Had to wait five minutes to be noticed by the manager who was laying out menus while avoiding eye contact. Seemed to be hung over. Our server, Dylan, was friendly and attentive and took the drink order quickly. The issue, however, was that our food took nearly... More
