Fare is a little bit atypical but it's pretty much aimed at people seeking nouvelle cuisine. But we'll go back regularly because the food is good enough to deserve our return visits, the service is good and the prices are competitive for Westport.

I don't come here often but I've always had a good, solid meal here. They have a nice outdoor patio and a very diversified menu. I've had their chicken dishes which were excellent and a burger which was good, although unexceptional. Decent service but a bit too much of a scene at busy times.

Had a decent meal and the service was fine. Atmosphere was cozy and interesting. Had lobster mac and lobster rolls. The servings seemed diminutive but pricing wasn't oppressive. I've been back for drinks and found it enjoyable to relax here with friends. Worth a stop if you're looking for a new place to try. I think you'll enjoy it!

Time and time again I can rely on this great place. The food is always consistant and the drinks are wonderful. The staff is super congenial, the patrons are fun to talk to, and the ownership just makes it a point to meet and greet everyone.

Once again we had an enjoyable and tasty dinner here. Once again we ate on the porch (enclosed and heated in cold weather). Inside is just too noisy. Lemon Drop Martini to begin was made just right. We shared 3 small plates and each was good. Scampi cocktail at $14.95 had 4 nicely grilled shrimp. The Pizzets at $12.95 had... More

I'm a big fan of this restaurant. It's not cheap. But it's consistently delicious. I highly recommend the Arthur Ave spring rolls and the black truffle burger.

The calamari appetizer was very good, but then the main courses arrived. Both my friend and I had awful dinners. I had the short ribs which were hard-to-find among a sea of mashed potatoes smothered in sweet and sour sauce scattered with unrecognizable vegetables. My friend had fish which was equally smothered but in garlic and a pile of chopped... More

We had the opportunity to visit our daughter, niece and a few of their friends in Westport, CT. The trip included lunch at The Spotted Horse Tavern, which turned out to be a treat for all. The salads were delicious. The Gray Goose Cobb was enjoyed by two of our group, while two others enjoyed the special of the day... More

Nice place to have dinner with a friend and catch up. The food was very good. I had the Spasta with shrimp...which is spaghetti squash instead of pasta. It was awesome and much lighter than pasta. I'd come back again for sure (once the construction across the street is complete!)

Thank Debby D
