We've been to Splash many
We've been to Splash many times. They've added some new items to the menu which make it even better. I beleive that a number of them are from their sister restaurant Baang. I had the tenderloin scallopini which was wonderful. There were six of us and most people had the swordfish or the sea bass which are both great. The calamari salad is always a winner. Our waiter was very helpful describing the new dishes on the menu and the service was excellent. We come back again and again because we have never had a bad or even average meal at Splash!

A great find that always wins
As usual Splash made a big splash. Excellent fish dishes that are unique and delicious. But, their great food doesn't stop at the main course, I highly recommend their deserts as well.

If you have time for a short
If you have time for a short drive from Rte 1 and want a beautiful setting/view and excellent food, this is the perfect place. As usual, there was a mix of regular and more ambitious options on the menu, never boring and very delicious. I enjoyed a wonderful, hot cauliflower soup and a sort of tempura tilapia with salad. Everything was excellent. The service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. And the view of the beach was spectacular.

Excellent Food, Poor Service
I had made reservations (for 4) through Open Table for 7:30 PM on a Saturday night but it took close to an hour to finally be seated.
There was too much chaos at the front desk with arriving diners demanding their reservations be honored.
Once seated the great food made up for the frustrating wait.

Very reliable for a large portion, nicely served and flavorful.

Consistently great food but...
Love the food here and the location on the water. Ask for an outdiir table when making reservation in summer. The only draw back to this restaurant (and I have been going there for years) is the time it takes to get seated at your table. They can't seem to guage reservation times well. Sometimes I've waited 20-30 minutes for a table like this past Saturday night.

Lovely Spot for Brunch with Mum
Had a wonderful, memorable Mother's Day Brunch this past Sunday! We'll be back again for the next special occasion, and we also want to try a summer dinner here.

What a great place!
Didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The food was great!

Very nice dining experience. Everything was very good. Waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Food was timely and very good. Everyone in the dining was impressed. Definitely more casual than formal.

Great brunch. A little spread
Great brunch. A little spread out in the sense that food was on one side of building and seating on the other, but overall experience was great!

We moved to Manhattan recently, but made a special trip to Splash in Westport over the Memorial Day weekend, because we wanted to be reminded of "home"...and we were not disappointed. Spilling out from the restaurant onto the beach is such a bonus for our kids, because it gives them a bit of playtime after a satisfying brunch.

This Birthday Brunch was the Best!
Took a family member to brunch at Splash to celebrate a milestone birthday. The food was wonderful, the service was attentive and we both had a delightful time overlooking the boats sailing on the Sound. I hope to return soon!

Midweek lunch @ Splash
We ate lunch outside on the deck on a Wednesday. The view was lovely. The waiter was very attentive but not overly so. The food arrived within 10" of ordering. Presentation: good. Taste: very good. Contrary to other reviews the service was very good. I would recommend Splash to a friend. The outside signage could be more visible. Only one slight complaint. The waiter took away a glass of iced tea but never asked if my guest wanted more. Yes, I would go back to Splash.

Very Pleasant Evening
After reading many reviews, I feared poor service and a noisy dinner but a great water side view. It couldn't have turned out better. A table on the porch which we got right away was quiet and not in a traffic pattern. The steak was ok but the swordfish was outstanding, perhaps the best I have had. The waiter was outstanding as well. It turned out to be a very pleasant evening and a great water view.

Splash Is Still Good
Splash is still a nice place to celebrate a special occasion, overlooking LI Sound and the Westport shoreline. Outdoor seating is at a premium and difficult to obtain, unless you come early or late. However, sitting inside was pleasant and the sound level was manageable. The food is still good, although it has fallen a few levels over the years. Service is very spotty. Our waiter was trying to be somewhat attentive, but was too busy to properly attend to us. Drink orders were delayed or missing, requests were often overlooked by the busboys. Three appetizers, three entrees and three desserts was more than enough food for four hungry adults. Do not end your meal without trying their wonderful chocolate pagoda, a Splash creation.

Eat on the deck
Beautiful view, lovely light, quiet, fine food. what's not to like? Although described as noisy, this doesn't apply to the deck, at least on the Monday night we were there in July.

Splash was perfect for a romantic birthday celebration. We had a gorgeous view of sailboats and blue water from our window-side table for two. Our waiter was knowledgeable, polite, and efficient, his recommendations were excellent, and our service was impeccable. The food was superb; we started with clams from the raw bar that were the freshest we ever tasted. We had one of the evening's specialties, the baked Bass, and one of the regular entries, the tenderloin steak, both of which were excellent. Upon making reservations earlier, I had asked if a candle could be added to a dessert. Without further reminder, the lighted candle appeared on our shared creme brulee . I look forward to our next celebration at Splash.

Met a friend at Splash for dinner based on another friend's recommendation. It was excellent. We were there early on a Tuesday (6pm). The bar was busy. The pictures of the restaurant on their website give it the appearance of being a bit more "plush" than it really is (I just noticed the flimsy aluminum chairs), but was still very nice. The view of the water was beautiful. The food was excellent but the service was even better. Our waiter and assistants helping, were outstanding. He/they could not have been more attentive and nice. Living in both NYC and CT, this restaurant reminded me more of a NYC place, mainly due to the prices - quite expensive. But will go back.

Great outdoor dining experience
Excellent food situated on the water front at Westport, tasty & varied seafood menu

Great view from outdoor porch.
Great view from outdoor porch. lower level patio was not open, so we could not have cocktails outside. Food was good...not great, but good enough to go back.

I have been to Splash numerous times and it has always been exceptional. The view of the Long island Sound is beautiful. My friend and I were seated for roughly 20 minutes without our waiter approaching us. Finally the hostess moved us to another table and said a waiter would be over immediately. After another 10 minutes a waiter did not appear so I was able to get the attention of the busboy who took our order. Our food was delicious. We had the mussels to start, shared a generous portion of the calamari salad, and both had the Sea Bass. The Sea Bass was cooked to perfection and the coconut rice cake was very flavorful. By the end of dinner we still had not seen our server so we had to walk into the bar to fetch our bill and pay.

On the Water
A delightful place to have lunch on the patio overlooking the water.

Splash is known for its seafood. The menu is limited, but the food is very tasty. The service is slow, so don't go if you're in a hurry.

Perfect for Visitors to Area
Beautiful weather added to our experience at Splash. Innovative menu which was carried out quite well. All four of us were happy with our choices.

We are regulars and have never
We are regulars and have never been disappointed by Splash. The calamari salad and spring rolls are a favorite in the appetizer list. The Sea Bass is always excellent as are the mussels. The service is always attentive without being intrusive. The noise level inside can be pretty loud, especially when the bar is full. Sitting outside on a nice evening is a treat.

I came to the restaurant to
I came to the restaurant to give a send-off to my older daughter and the Splash employees made is really unforgetable through little details (and sentimental inscripton on our desert), through caring yet non-invasive presence; and of course, attending to my request of a vegan option of food. My guests and I were truely impressed!

Fabu place for lunch or early dinne
We sat on the pation with a stupendous view of the sound. Shared 3 appetizers and splurged on dessert - Warm homemade blueberry tart - fabulous and worth the calories! Feel like you're part of the country club vib without the dues!

Service better than other reviews
My husband and I had dinner at Splash. The food was excellent - I had a NY Strip special and he had Sole with "forbidden black rice"...whatever that it. It was delicious though (as were the drinks), especially the sangria. The service was strong. I don't remember the gentleman's name. I was a bit skeptical going in because of the poor reviews on the service, but he was attentive and super nice.

Good food but disappointing service
We enjoyed the apps and meals very much; however our server was disinterested and appeared to lack personality. We weren't offered drink refills until the meal was nearly done despite needing them much earlier. Beautiful view from the porch.

First time for brunch
My girlfriend and I were blown away by the variety and quality of brunch options. I actually made three trips to the buffet line. Our waitres Georgia was extremly plesant and attentive and the wait staff was quick to remove used plates so we could go back for more. I have already told a number of friends and will definitely be going back in the future.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Never have a bad experience here. Food and service are always great. The surf and turf special was outstanding. The calamari salad is a must for us. The swordfish is always a winner. Our waiter is always helpful and attentive. No one rushes us out the door.

Splash, a Westport Institution!
For the food, ambiance, view and exceptional service Splash far surpasses all of their newly opened institutions throughout the Westport/Stamford area. Paul, our waiter was excellent as well as our seafood dishes (Ahi Tuna and Lobster Risotto). Definitely will be back at this wonderful location, especially in the spring and summer season on their patio!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
While it was not traditional Thanksgiving ambiance at all, we were very surprised to have an outstanding holiday buffet luncheon there. Except for the green bean casserole (undercooked) and the stuffing (mushy and bland), the food was abundant, fresh and delicious! It was a bit strange to walk to another room to get food and then back, but it was well worth it. The service was quite good as well considering the crowd there. Will return for sure!
