Love love this tiny gem in our town. The restaurant is small and intimate. The food is amazing, sourced locally. Try the prix fixe menu on Thursdays or the amazing brunch on Sundays.

This is a tough place to get into so it is essential to book ahead. It is well worth the visit. The food is all sourced locally and the imaginative combinations make every meal very special. Great for special occasions and Brunch on weekends.

The prix-fix night dinners used to be a culinary adventure in an otherwise pretty limited gourmet landscape found in lower Fairfield county. The first two courses were mainly vegan inspired colorful combinations of fruit and salads, roasted baby carrots with something or ricotta on toast with hairloom tomatoes as well as gazpacho. Albeit very good it just was a bit... More

Foie gras was the best I have ever had. The fish was superb. The octopus was cooked to perfection. The steak was succulent. Chocolate soufflé was out of this world. The waiters are so attentive and kind cranberry pecan bread is great. Butter is wonderful.

The Schoolhouse is one of my very favorite restaurants, and has been consistently excellent now for many years. The chef is devoted to local sources for the best and freshest ingredients, and he prepares and presents them with imagination, flair, and absolutely delicious results. The restaurant was really an old-fashioned one-room schoolhouse; it's charming, but often crowded and sometimes noisy.... More

Tim LaBant is an amazing chef and whips up some really unique and flavorful creations here. It isn't cheap, not an everyday visit for my budget, but well worth the splurge! I especially love brunch where there is an amazing hot chocolate like you would get in a cafe in Paris. With every meal, you NEED to save room for... More

I have been going to the Schoolhouse for the last five years and have had my taste buds tantalized every time. Aside from the wonderful atmosphere, excellent customer service, the food is incredible. The chef creates dishes I could not possibly dream of. Thursday night is a great night to go for their tasting menu. All the ingredients are incredibly... More

Went there Thursday evening and had the prix fix menu, which was fantastic. The best duck confit this side of the Atlantic. The preparation and combinations are perfect, all created from local farms and sources. Will be going again soon.
