The food was delicious and the portions were sizable. A good variety from pizza to sandwiches to nice dinner selections. The meals are always cooked fresh so sometimes it is a small wait but it is well worth it.

Someplace Special is a cute restaurant tucked in Putnam, CT. I have been there several times for special occasions. That have an interesting assortment of entries, salads, appetizers, pizza, and desserts. It is a must try for new people, and a great place to continue going to.

The interior of this restaurant is very nice - a bit upscale looking but also comfy. Waitress was courteous but not friendly - a bit too much perfume. Clam chowder outstanding. Sandwich and steak were good. Don't bother with the onion rings.

This was our second trip back to this gem in Putnam, revisiting it after three years. Due to the hour, 4 pm, it was uncrowded, although there were diners seated outside taking advantage of a sunny 75 degree day in March. My eggplant parm portion was ginormous with more than half heading home in a doggie bag. Husband enjoyed his... More

rated as poor due to long wait for food - service(staff) was fine but the wait for a grinder and chicken salad was intolerable for a Friday at 11:30 - there were 6 patrons in the rest. when we were seated.

Food and service are good. Nice brick area outside to dine. Outside area is right on the street, so loud motorcycles can be annoying...

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 doesn't... More
