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 had a low key bachelorette brunch here this weekend and the staff was so attentive. The volume was perfect for chatting and the food was delicious!!

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.

Food was decent. Service just OK. Waiter spilled cocktails on us and should have comped the round or offered a desert, but didn’t. That was disappointing.

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!

This was our first time here and we loved how inventive the food was and we enjoyed the beer and wine selections. Great place! The only thing is that the portions run on the small side.

If you are looking for a restaurant with an outdoor dining space, this not the restaurant for you unless you like sitting on on sidewalk along the curb. That was very dis

Two of us ordered the trout and one ordered the Branzino fish. All three dishes were overcooked and dried out. Not much flavor. No one gave us a wine list so we just ordered whatever pinot they had. It was served very cold. It took forever to get dinner, we had to ask for it, service was slow. Very disappointed that this $250+ dinner was so mediocre. It was highly recommended to us but we will not go back.

We would recommend Bailey's, but not for their vegetarian dish, which was overpriced and poorly prepared.
The scallops were excellent.

Lovely meal, nice wine. Pork chop was tender and very flavorful. Hot Pot seafood, unexpectedly light and delicious. Creative chef. Service was spotty, had to track down wait staff for another glass of wine and the check. Prices are high. $145 without tip for 2 apps, 2 entrees and 4 glasses of moderately priced wine - so not for an everyday meal in mosts budget.
