Beautiful Sunday brunch outside with the opportunity to order a few delicious items from the dinner menu.
We were celebrating my mom’s 80th birthday and you were so kind to make sure she would have a safe space in your restaurant. Thank you for being so accommodating and the food and cocktails were all absolutely delicious!!!
The Cottage never disappoints!! Great food and excellent service.
Amazing spot. Highly Recommend it. Great food and drinks.
We always love a meal at The Cottage and our most recent one celebrating my birthday didn’t disappoint. The service from Melanie is always friendly and professional and leaves us enough time to enjoy the great innovative food the chefs make! We ate outside this last time due to caution over COVID and it was pleasant and felt very safe. Don’t miss the wagyu brisket Baos and the pastas made fresh. My daughter and I ate every bit of the mushroom farro appetizer and the salmon dish! Desserts are awesome too!
Fantasic as always!
Always a reliably good experience!
Superb. In all ways.
The Cottage is awesome.
Cannot go without having the Broccoli & Squid.. Branched out and tried their Beets - they are outrageously good! The bread and chilled/peppered butter (come on... eat some Gluten!) is great for making sure you don’t miss a drop of sauce (in the broccoli and in any dish you order). Salmon and Cod were both outstanding. We shared Cheesecake for dessert and... hard to meet a dislikeable cheesecake but this one is truly outstanding. Chef Brian is hands on and it shows! The staff is cordial and attentive. Hard to beat The Cottage!
Major dispute about the wine. They have a circular stamp on the wine menu which crossed out the first digit of the wine price. So the $80 bottle of Barolo that I thought I ordered was actually $180. Slightly out of character for 4-top splitting 2 appetizers and half the people having the 1/2 order of pasta.
Everything was wonderful, except that is is always a bit drafty and cold in the front room.
Go see Will! Brunch was wonderful.
We love the cottage. Food is always excellent.
Could not have had a better place for a valentines day date!
Great food. Can get loud at peak times but service is excellent.
The Cottage is the best restaurant in the area. Simple as that.
Food did not disappoint. Quaint environment.
We had an absolutely wonderful dinner at the Cottage. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was fun to sit and watch the Kitchen staff do their choreographed dance of cooking, pacing meals and keeping up with the demands of a Saturday night. It was completely mesmerizing. As I told my husband walking to our car, I simply can’t remember the last time I had a meal that was so yummy, satisfying and surprising. The last meal was a few years ago at Eleven Madison. We couldn’t believe this was our first meal at the cottage and we can’t wait to go back! Thanks so very much!
This is our favorite place in town and we’ve never had a bad meal there till the other night. Menu was very limited, not what is listed online, the food was so over salted. Big disappointment but will always give it another try bc it’s always been great. Btw, heard this from others that it has not been consistently good. Too bad bc it’s a gem.
I’ve never been disappointed when dining at The Cottage. Typically, I like to dine at the bar and table service is great if I have more guests. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the food menu is eclectic and delicious. The Cottage is definitely one of my favorite go-to places in Westport.
Beautifully presented food in a intimate yet inviting setting. Service was perfect! Stand out menu items include the tagliatelle, the sundae dessert, and the cod. Will be back!
We went for my wifes birthday and everything was outstanding. Food was excellent and it was an overall fantastic meal!!
Unfortunately our experience was lacking. Expensive & slow service...our entrees took awhile to arrive & were cold. Disappointing.
The food is creative and delicious. The cod was perfect; lobster pasta delicious; incredible appetizers. After dining in Westport for 30 years, I believe this is the best restaurant in Westport.
Amamxing staff and NYC quality. Best restaurant in CT
We really enjoyed our experience at the Cottage. The food was very good, the atmosphere was charming and the service was excellent. The only drawback was how close the tables were to each other. Other than that, we had a delightful evening.
Inventive, fresh food for brunch. Leisurely pace.. depending on where you sit it can be noisy
The Cottage never disappoints.
Inventive cuisine, graciously served. The ambiance is cozy, yet vibrant.
We had bacon and eggs as a starter, served in precisely opened egg shells...delicious.
Love this place, I want to go there every night for dinner.
Reservations We booked in advance, and we’re very excited to have dinner here. The restaurant is very cozy, clean, and felt very professional. The room, unfortunately, is tiny, and as a bigger guy, I bumped into the table next to us, trying to get to my seat. Also, the lights were very dark, and the music was loud. I notice a lot of people within other iPhones to read the menu. Another thing I notice is or appetizers did not come out at the same time and unfortunately wasn’t even close. The food was amazing and worth the wait. I did note on OpenTable it was already anniversary dinner, and they did make it a point to read the note and surprise my wife when dessert came out with a candle. I think the restaurant is excellent; it’s a little bit of a tight fit and a little dark and look forward to going back.
Subpar experience. I’d been once before and couldn’t wait to go back. I decided to take my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and what a regret.
The manager and our server were very kind, but there was no coming back from this mess which likely stemmed from the kitchen.
From the moment we got seated, it probably took about 20 minutes to place our order. We ordered 4 appetizers:
-Blue Cheese Toastie
It took over 45 minutes just to get the deviled eggs and sashimi— two items that are served cold!
Another 45 minutes go by, and we receive our second two apps, blue cheese toastie and wagyu baos. The kimchi to the wagyu baos had zero flavor which was disappointing. When our server brought these apps, he did apologize for how long everything took and said he was firing the ticket for our entrees in the kitchen immediately.
Another 20 minutes or so, and we get our mains.
-Kabocha Squash Agnolotti
Both were barely warm at best, nowhere close to hot.
The agnolotti pasta dough and filling was mush— it literally looked like a ball of burrata. There was nothing that resembled raviolis. The lobster spaghetti was cut up into small pieces, it looked like the pasta from a Lipton’s noodle soup mix. At this point we didn’t want to send them back since everything took so long. We were there for 2.5 hours and just wanted to leave. It was extreme loud and we had trouble hearing each other speak.
Sadly it was not the birthday dinner I had envisioned and a very long night.
Good times great value!
great food as always. I find he menu a little limiting, so may not rush back for a bit. Music was interesting - Zeppelin kind a loud when I walked in. ALl that said, the Cottage is my favorite restaurant in FF COunty - hands down!
It was our first time at “The Cottage” and it is our new favorite restaurant! We live in Westport and can’t believe we haven’t gone their sooner. The food was outstanding , creative and delicious, only using the very freshest and finest ingredients! We also loved their music choice playing in the background. Our only small complaint was we sat in the room where the bar was which was a bit louder then we would gave preferred and more cramped with guests hovering at the bar which was right next to our table. That said the bar and bar co tail menu are great !! For next time we will definitely request the main dining room. The service e was also perfect ! Thank you The Cottage for a wonderful evening and making a birthday celebration more special !
Always hits on all points. This is one of the consistently best restaurants in the region.
Every meal I've ever had here has been nothing short of excellent — especially love how they prepare vegetables and seafood.
The cottage was great. The food was really tasty. We had the foie gras, deviled eggs, chestnut soup and we shared the prime rib. They were all very good and the prime rib came out perfectly. We had a great waiter, he suggested a wine for a pairing with the prime rib (Nebbiolo) which was perfect! We'll be back :)
Food was delicious,however, the entree was petit and probably a luncheon size!
always the best of the best
This was our 3rd visit in two years. (We live about 1/2 hour away from the restaurant.) The food was again delicious. Our server, who was lovely, professional and helpful, warned us that we were over ordering, which we decided to do anyway. The foie gras was great as was the tuna tataki. My husband loved the deviled eggs and I thought the do-it-yourself steamed pork bun was terrific. The one dish which was only good, not fabulous, was the pasta with truffles - too rich and it could have used more flavor. The chocolate and peanut butter sundae was really good and weirdly addictive. Looking around, all of the tables that ordered it finished every last bit in the bowl. We did end up bringing our last dish, a hamburger, home as leftovers. We warmed it (and the fries) the next night. It was truly one of the best hamburgers my husband and I have ever had. I can’t wait to go back to the Cottage again!
I love the way The Cottage innovates, rather than serving the same old combinations and dishes. All the ingredients seem to be extra fresh and of good quality. Tables are very close, but the ambience is friendly, Service is always accommodating and pleasant. There are two rooms to the restaurant; one contains a long bar, which is where the seat people when they are crowded. They're usually crowded, so I recommend reservations. And, BTW, their portions are large. And their coffee is great.
