I love a Sunday buffet brunch, and
was pleased overall with everything. We sat in a booth which was designed with an archway to enter through and gave the impression we were in a private dining area - very unique and nice. The food choices were OK. My husband was impressed with the meat selections, and the omelet was great! The bagel area had tons of good toppings, but the bagel was just OK. Personally, I think a brunch should always include fresh fruit, but there was none offered."

Sophisticated, usual AND
delicious. Highly recommend."

Had a $20 for $40 coupon so
decided to try it. The atmosphere was warm, friendly and comfortable. We sat in a booth against a wall, very private and relatively quiet, a weekday night. Don't know how it would be for kids, seemed more a place for grown ups but there is a kids menu so might be fine. Service was good, attentive but no hovering. Drinks were top brands without asking. Lots of choices, appetizers, starters, salads, small plates, entrees and sides, not to mention the desserts. We both had the cod special and it was very good. A little pricier than some, but not a lot and well worth it. Menu is available online. We will definitely go again."

We liked finding a new spot for
brunch, especially in Litchfield. And for being in Litchfield in the fall, it wasn't too crowded! Unfortunately the restaurant itself is all inside with no view or outside light, except for several outside tables. The food itself was good, with a variety of breakfast, brunch, and dessert options. We thought it was a very good value for $20 each."

this is the 5 or 6th time I have
eaten here and each time it is consistently really good. The steaks are always done perfect. Love the falafel app, homemade fries are delicious. We love it and made it one of our favorite places to dine.."

The food was good, not great. We
ate here on a Friday evening at about 7:30 PM and everybody was very nice and helpful, unfortunately our waitress was not very attentive despite being a very nice young lady. I'm certain that we will return at some point, but because of the service we won't plan to return soon."

the pictures from the official
website make this bistro look very upscale. It's not unless by upscale you are referring to a cafeteria. There are TVs on the wall so you can catch the game and a large bar. The room is spacious but not warm–good for friends & beer. However, the burger was one of the BEST I've ever eaten. It's made from angus beef and the fries were hot and perfectly cooked. I asked for a medium rare and was served a medium rare burger on a soft delicious bun. These burgers are large and juicy so you can split it with a friend unless you are really hungry or a gourmand. They also serve fish, but the smell of it was so strong it made me worry."

They need to make outdoor seating
more appealing. It is too dark inside."

Very consistent service from all
incredibly helpful staff. Enjoyed dining on the patio. Every brunch item was delicious."

The Monday night prime rib special
is a solid winner at 99cents an once served with flavorful mashed potatoes and veggies. Weds. nights it is 20percent discount for Seniors on all regular menu items...can't beat that. The bistro is also a wonderful atmosphere with very attentive and friendly service. Every order is made fresh so sometimes the weight is a bit long but worth the weight. Go for a special occasion or just to hang out with friends at the bar for small bites. great addition to the area."

We had an okay experience at
Bantam Bistro. There was one large group in the restaurant and a few other scattered diners, but the dining room was barely alive. The decor was really dated, borderline depressing. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The menu was pretty good and the food was GOOD. My salad of arugula, beets, grapefruit and goat cheese was pretty good. Then I had bucatini with shrimp and clams which was tasty, although very, very spicy. I like spicy food but this was a notch more than it should have been for restaurant fare without the warning. I wouldn't go out of my way for this restaurant."

The only thing holding them back
from a perfect score was the fact that it was too hot. Broken AC or they knew about it but it was like walking into an air conditioned room when we left and walked outside. Might have just been able to open the windows and/or doors. We will be going back despite the heat - great meal"

Although the appetizers were
excellent including good salads and steak tartar, some of the main courses were mixed in quality. The wait staff were highly attentive and pleasant but the wait for the food was unacceptable despite a near empty restaurant."

I attended a brunch buffet for
Mother's Day...the food was nicely presented...the atmosphere was beautiful. Although nicely presented...the actual food flavor was a bit lacking...and in this I mean that it was a very simple flavors, nothing was creatively made for this menu."

First time back with the new menu
and food...all the food was excellent...service OK but a more professionalism would make for a better dining experience."

Amazing food and terrible service.
The waitstaff hardly paid us any attention."

Bantam Bistro has excellent food
and atmosphere and it was interesting to find out the chef came from Boulders Inn where my husband and I use to go to celebrate our anniversary for years. The atmosphere is awesome in that it has a casual feel to it and you can have a romantic dinner while others are enjoying themselves with their family. The service is excellent in that the staff is attentive to your needs and very personable. It is hard to find a restaurant where everything is excellent from (drinks,apps,dinner to dessert) beginning to end as well as staff and atmosphere. Our only disappointment was they may be removing their key lime pie from the menu which is the best we have ever had."

We were at the Bantam Bistro for
the first time on Easter Sunday for their brunch. I realize we shouldn't rate a restaurant on such a busy day and normally I would take the food with a grain of salt, no pun intended. The Service was from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm we had a reservation for 1:15 when we went through the food line at least four of the entre's or vegetable dishes were empty (long lines) the dishes that were available were overcooked or dry. There was an omlette, waffle, and pancake bar that was backing up the line. When I finally got to the meat slicing station the ham was dry and the lamb was more than well done. I will try the restaurant on a slower night I've heard it is good bud I couldn't see spending $80.00 plus drinks."

Bantam Bistro is contained within
the Litchfield Inn. We visited on a Saturday in mid-March. No problem getting a table...we suspect that dinner is the busier mealtime at this restaurant. We thought the food was good and reasonably priced. The dining room was quiet during our visit...very nice if you want to have good conversation with your table mates without shouting to be heard. Very attentive wait staff."

We have passed the Bantam Bistro
about a hundred times in the past few years as we live in New Milford and travel to Litchfield and Torrington for shopping trips and entertainment. We finally decided to give it a try. Our food was excellent (best french fries I have ever had), our service was better than excellent. Unfortunately, we were next to an extremely large group that had several loud individuals that made it very difficult for my wife and I to hear each others conversation. It continued for the entire dinner as they seemed to be in for the long haul. However, we will not be discouraged, and we will return for another dinner very soon."
