“Overall Very Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Went here for the first time for Easter dinner. Our party of 6 all ordered from the fixed price menu. Every app/salad, entree and dessert that we ordered was very good! House wine was also good, as was the service. We look forward to returning and trying the regular menu!

Service always friendly and fast, lots of neighborhood regulars, good specials and reliable staples. Love the blue cheese walnut salad as starter.

“food quality not consistent and staff coudl improve”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Food is ok on some days, bad on others, above average on another. Every visit is a different scenario. One of the only places in town to get food, but I prefer to travel to fairfield or milford.

“Good food, wine list needs updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We were out with friends last night at "O" Bar and Grill.

Menu is nice, good variety for any appetite. Small plates/tapas were interesting, although not spanish. we tried mushroom risotto (creamy and flavorful), spring rols and buffalo chicken bites, all good and small enough to not spoil your appetite!

Main courses were also good, burgers, steak and fish tacos were had by our party and everyone enjoyed their food.

The only real complaint was the wine list is way out of date, and server was not familiar or skilled. List had 2005 and 2007 California Cabs, among other choices, and the server brought out several 2010's. If we hadn't pointed it out, we would have been served these young wines but would have been charged for better wines. I chalked it up in part to server inexperience, he did try, but did not understand the wines, and to management not being on top of their product. Ended up with a 2006 Cline Syrah that was good, but the entire process was very dragged out and took away from the overall experience.
