Restaurant came highly recommended and we drove out of our way to get there.
It is quite small , but popular and people are lining up even with reservations. Most people, like us, come for the water view and wait for table by the windows.

After a while we did get a nice table and enjoyed our food. I had the Tuna Tartare and my husband had Lobster Bisque and Fish and Chips.

Valet parking only, the parking is very tight and they want to control it....

I had the best crab cake I ever had here. The Barramundi Milanese was superb as were the oysters. One of our friends had the tuna steak which was just OK. It was over cooked. The ice cream desserts and the homemade blueberry pie were delicious. Unfortunately, because this is a small restaurant, it is very NOISY which seriously detracts from the dining experience. Service was good.

We’re happy you enjoyed your time with us! Sorry to hear about the tuna and noise level. We do have sound absorbing panels throughout both visible and not. It is something we try to prevent. We hope to see you again soon!

Maybe I just ordered the wrong dishes. The Caesar salad was totally uneventful and the linguine with clams was underwhelming. A lovely location, a nice space but it just didn’t deliver for me.

This restaurant offers a very New England experience. Rowayton is a small fishing town on the coast of CT between Darien and Norwalk. The bay is filled with docks. The restaurant is built on one of them. On nice days, you can eat outside. Otherwise, try and get a table next to the windows. The fish is excellent. We had oysters and the spicy tuna tartare for appetizers. we then had a classic lobster roll. It was a perfect sunny afternoon meal.
