Lovely setting - overlooking the Housatonic River below Lake Zoar - modern airy - different seating areas to choose from -

Luncheon Menu was limited - few choices - Beer selections also small -

But the ambiance was quite nice - food adequate service quite attentive

Sunday Brunch was a lovely experience overall. Menu was limited, but thoughtfully put together. For appetizers, the fresh tomato and mozzarella with basil pesto was refreshing, served with white bean salad on bed of fresh spinach leaves. Clam chowder was quite good. The cheese plate was a little disappointing with only a blue and two soft cheeses, served with crackers and some whole grain mustard. Could have been improved with a nice cheddar (rather than a second soft cheese), and perhaps fresh apple or grapes. For the entree, the goat cheese omelet was delightful, cooked just until perfectly set and served hot, the breakfast potatoes made with baby potatoes, roasted red peppers and onions were delicious. The salmon with roast fingerling potatoes and onion garnish was cooked perfectly. The french toast plate with eggs proved a very generous serving, and delicious. Dessert selections were varied, but we all had to have the french chocolate mousse cake, which did not disappoint. Please note: certain beverages are not included in the brunch pricing: mimosa and bloody mary are $6, "bottomless mimosa" are $12, Cappuccino are $8. Restaurant is laid out to take full advantage of the river view, which was spectacular. Live jazz in the lounge. Wait staff was attentive but not overly so, we enjoyed a leisurely brunch and did not feel rushed. A very pleasant afternoon, and we will come again to this hidden gem. Don't let the Seymour address put you off; easy access from Trumbull, Monroe, Shelton, Ansonia, and Derby.

If you're looking for outstanding cuisine, look elsewhere. It's the ambiance and waterfront atmosphere that overshadows all else. Bar creations a plus!

I ate there with a relative who was familiar with the place and likes it. I was surprised to see my favorite French seafood soup on the menu and based on the description decided to try it. It was fine, except 1. It was almost all shrimp and mussels, 2. Some pieces of fish were strong, 3. All the fish was overcooked and rubbery 4., There was no saffron, 5. There as no fennel and 6 It was loaded with lemon juice. Even if you called it an American fish soup, it was still AWFUL.

The other people I was with seemed to like their food and then service was good.

After a satisfactory visit a couple of weeks ago we encountered. A real disappointment on our recent visit. While We had very nice service we couldn’t really believe the poor quality of the lamb burger or even the basic classic burger. The pork nachos, always a favorite, were appealing to the eye but had an ingredient change that was strange to the taste. The explanation was that they were trying to change the cheese to eliminate a melting problem. Bottom line would be they need to tighten up the extensive menu and work on quality of some basic items.
