I had one of the best meals yet at Bailey's. They tend to have a very limited vegetarian menu but this time we had a few choices and they were delicious. The pakora was outstanding. Liked the ethnic tilt to the specials.

We have been to Bailey's multiple times and always had a great meal. We were VERY disappointed this last visit. We brought 4 friends because we wanted them to experience it. The chef was new and the food changed completely. It now has more of an Indian flair that I am not a fan of. Menu selections were VERY limited and they ran out of the only special by 8 pm. I would not return unless they hire a new chef. I had to appologize to the friends we brought for the change in menu and style of food. None of the 6 of us would ever return.

Nice farm to table in Ridgefield. We were looking for something different & the food didn’t disappoint. Small place, so seating is cozy & can get a little loud.
Would definitely recommend to others!

A friend and I went here for dinner on a Friday night. We are vegetarians and wanted to share a couple of things and ended up splitting 4 appetizers. No meals, no dessert, just 4 appetizers (small to normal size appetizers, nothing crazy). On 4 separate occasions the staff commented on how much food we were ordering, and then should they pull up an extra table for all of our food, and we probably wouldn't want dessert because we had eaten so much. At some point I said "hey, you're kind of starting to make us feel bad here". It may have been in jest, I don't know but by the 4th comment we both felt pretty uncomfortable. So, we would probably not return here, which is too bad because the food was actually tasty.

Good food - terrible service. It took 2.5 hours - arrived at 6:30 for a reservation and left at 9:00pm. The host took two people before us (without reservations), including one who arrived after we were already inside the restaurants. After 30-40 minutes at the table, I finally asked for a server. As we were in the middle of our appetizers, the server informed us that they were out of the special we had ordered 45 minutes earlier.

We really loved the food and the wait staff were all lovely. The food was top-notch, excellent quality, excellent menu. We will return when we are in the area. I was hesitant to give it 5 stars because it took them a really long time to serve us and we were going to a show. We arrived a little late for the show.

Lovely little hideaway walking distance to Ridgefield playhouse. Food is creative and farm to table. The cornbread with melted butter is a great way to start but the Zucchini fritters are a must. Definitely will be back regardless if we are seeing a show.

We both did the tasting menu. Partner’s food was very good but mine was not. Soup and black cod were very small and it was the tail of the fish. Disappointing. His clam dip and veal were very good. Very nice interior.

Scallops entree was not as good as scallop starter which I have enjoyed in the past. The peas were not cooked and scallops were drowned in a tasteless tomato purée.

Affogato is a great way to have your coffee and dessert in one.

The menu is always enticing; broad in scope even with just a few offerings. In this instance the Korean bbq shirt rib was a special and was certainly special (see photo).

The food was excellent. Service was a little slow and we were seated next to a group of eight who were extremely loud and the men were very vulgar with their language.

Great little date place to go with my husband! Food was delicious, I had the crabmeat grilled cheese and my hubby had The pastrami, everything is locally sourced. Restaurant was very clean and well kept, which is so important for me. Would love to go back and try dinner!
