Diner Reviews
  • "It was a rainy night and an empty restaurant (only two other tables and almost no one at the bar). Food was fair. Bar was quiet. I had tuna which was done as ordered-rare, and a ceasar salad which also was much too large for 1 person. Others had mandarin chicken salad which is always good but too large for one. Service was attentive. Wine on the menu was not available (take it off the list). View was poor, patio was not available because of the weather. I will try again when the sun is shining and the restaurant is humming. Front lobby was soaked Need to pay more attention to drying out the carpet when it rains. I was here three weeks earlier for a private party and it was beautiful, especially since the affair was both outside and inside."

  • "2nd year of Birthday dinner here and very nice again. When good weather, great outdoor dining but but a challenge to get outside table. Reservations required."

  • "The food was good - I cannot say great. I always like for my food to come hot and it wasn't... But I have been to Splash before and I will go back."

  • "Service started off poorly. Didn't seem to matter that we had a reservation, we were told it would be 20-40 minute wait. We did actually get seated after 20 minutes, but they seemed overwhelmed and never even offered us the opportunity to have a drink at the bar. Thank goodness food was excellent and we sat on patio, so it ended positively."

  • "Great table, Great service and Great food. The waiter was awesome and didn't rush us at all like some places do. Special Drinks should be in larger glasses and not watered down for the price your paying. that is my only negative comment."

  • "We had an 8:00 pm reservation for a party of four; we were seated at 8:25 PM. The view from the patio was terrific, and when the food finally arrived, it was also sensational. However - and it is a very big however - the service was probably the worst I've ever seen in a restaurant in Connecticut. We ordered appetizers, which came relatively quickly, but then there was a 50 minute wait between our appetizers and entrées. Moreover, I noticed that none of the other diners on the patio, numbering at least a dozen, had food on their tables. It may have been a kitchen snafu, or something else, but it turned a lovely night out into a debacle. And when I complained (at least three times) to the managers, my comments were not taken seriously."

  • "This past Saturday evening we arrived at Splash 5 minutes prior to our reservation time. The two hostesses appeared disorganized and had trouble even finding our reservation. There was no air conditioning in the restaurant and other diners were remarking how the kitchen was "badly backed up". We were not seated until nearly a half hour past our reservation time."

  • "We had a great time at Splash. We made reservations for 530p and were able to get a nice spot outside on a nice night. We had great appetizers, food and drinks. The service was perfect - not too fast where you feel rushed, yet not too slow either. And of course the view is amazing. Would highly recommend, though it is on the pricier side! "

  • "We were very disappointed in our experience at Splash. Parking was an issue and an attendent rudely yelled at me when I almost turned the wrong way while looking where alt parking was located. We made reservations and we still had to wait 45 minutes for a table on the deck. Our waitress kept disappearing. When we finished our apps we were still holding menus and hadn't ordered yet. Our dinner came almost 2hrs after our reservation time. We sat with empty water glasses several times and had to ask for them to be filled when staff finally passed us. We watch several waitstaff step over other patron's napkin that had fallen on the floor 20 min prior before one waitress picked it up. The food was good but not worth the agrivation. "

  • "Despite being able to make a reservation on Open Table, we arrived at Splash and it was closed. The hours on the door said it was supposed to be open and there was no sign or explanation. We also tried to book by phone the week before, got a recording that allowed us to make our request and leave our phone number and email... Never received any response. This is just sloppy management and rude. No way to treat customers. "

  • "We were very disappointed with this restaurant, after initially being very excited to have scored mother's day brunch reservations. There were way too many tables shoved into a small area, and the brunch was located a very far distance away from the tables. Not to mention I booked it after reading the website, which stated that brunch was $38, and it was in fact $48 that day... I did not learn this until the bill came, and had many upset family members at this moment. The waiter hit my husband in the head with a wine glass and barely apologized. We will not be returning to this restaurant, despite the beautiful views. "

  • "I would not recommend. It was disappointing compared to visits in years past. It has gone mass market with mass market service and jet takeoff level noise."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "It was a really nice scenic place the buffet was full of great foods. The only bad thing I can say is it's not easy to get to the buffet from the dining & porch setting. Too much traffic to get through people who are coming in to be seated and people who are leaving the restaurant and then you have the people who are trying to get to the buffet and coming back to there seat from the buffet, in a very, very tight spot. Makes this very hard for old people who have trouble walking. I am sure I am not the only one who has been disappointed with this set up. "

  • "Went with my family for Mother's Day brunch. Waited 5-10 minutes to just check in with the hostess, then another 10-15 for our table even though we had a res. The view is really great, although the decor could be updated. Unfortunately once we sat we waited even longer to be acknowledged by the waitstaff. Luckily, a waiter took pity on us and got our drink orders and directed us to the buffet even though we weren't in his section. The buffet was relatively good. It definitely needed to be cleaned up and organized as the restaurant was packed and some things were looking picked over. Unfortunately our actual waitress was slow to do anything, we asked for water twice, 15 minutes to bring the check, 15 to get the check etc."

  • "Overbooked, people herded like cattle, chaotic, dirty, below average food, waiters show little interest. Very disappointing. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Food has changed in style since last visit which was some years ago. The Calamari salad had a bit more heat than we recollected but was still delicious and the menu was skewed to more asian fusion flare. All the food was done to perfection and the meal was enjoyable. Specialty drinks were fabulous way to start - highly recommend the coconut mojito. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I had made a reservation online and they were kind enough to call me to let me know the time I had scheduled was past the time they stopped serving brunch. They were able to get me in at an earlier time."

  • "8:00 reservation. "It will be just 10 min." 40 mins. later we were seated . No "sorry about the wait " or anything. Very noisy. Our waiter and the food was the only saving grace for us. Probably won't go back."

  • "Splash has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Westport - it has the perfect location, wonderful food and is the ideal place to kick start summer!"

  • "I actually drove by the entrance since there were no lights and the restaurant is not viewable from the main road. I arrived for an 8:30 reservation and upon walking in I realized I was the only diner; yet I tried to remain objective. The service and the food were decent, but the server, the maître d' or both were smoking cigarettes somewhere; perhaps at a backdoor...unfortunately the smoke smell was noticeable."

  • "First of all showed up at 8 o'clock for my reservation and was told there were no tables available so i had to wait....Whats the point of the reservation then? Then found a piece of plastic netting in my mussel appetizer and was told by the waiter that it was just plastic..no big deal. Food was great but probably wont go back, there are plenty of other restaurants that will satisfy with better service"

  • "There was a strange old school italian vibe going on. We've been to Splash many many times over the years, and it was really odd. Bright red napkins, all the specials were Italian (and the one we got reminded us of school cafeteria food.) The old menu was still there, but the execution was not what it has been in the past. Disappointing."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Arrived at 6:30 per our reservation and there was one couple on the deck and one in the dining room. We asked to have a glass of wine on the deck then eat our dinner inside, she agreed to this begrudgingly, as if this was a huge imposition. The wine by the glass was a good selection. The Firecracker spring rolls and the macademia swordfish both exceptional. My companion's sole was also delicious. The service was beyond bad. We waited 15 mins for our wine once we went inside and ordered it. We waited close to 30 mins for our dinners. At this point ther was only one other couple in the dining room. Our waiter never checked back after our dinners were served. The food and the location made the evening, the service almost spoiled it."

  • "We have been coming to Splash for more than 5 years but this was the most annoying experience we had with the "host" at the front desk, who was anything but a host! We were kindly (!) reminded that the "outdoor seating was not guranteed" and if we wanted to have a table outside we should "leave" and come back in 1 hr. When my husband said it was my birthday and he did not appreciate the attitude of the host and asked for the manager, there was an outside table ready in 10 minutes. Actually many more tables were available within the 10 minutes of our seating. This negative interaction impacted our whole experience. Not happy!"
