We drive two hours to dine there for lunch. In my opinion the best restaurant in the tri-state area. Never disappoints and always exceeds expectations.

hands-down still the best restaurant in the area, New York included. Perfect service, and excellent touches throughout dinner, from the amuse bouche to freshly baked pretzel bread to shooters of milk and chocolate for dessert, also can't go wrong on any of the appetizers or entrees, especially the steak for a main course. Make sure to have the Arethusa ice creams, either next door or in the restaurant, creamiest around. Make your reservation way ahead.

I’ve been to Arethusa three times and they never disappoint. A little pricey, but worth it.

Dinner and appetizers were good. The potatoes and dessert was very dry. Service was good but we were not asked if we wanted more drinks. We were only given one piece of bread while other tables got extra. The tables were a little to close together and it was to dark.

Was pleasantly surprised to find gourmet dining in the mountains of CT
Other then the not so friendly host at our arrival it was a five star experience
He certainly could have been more welcoming ,hopefully our next visit will find a more personable host
The service and food was very good
Worth a visit !

Had Sunday lunch here on a rainy day. First time at this restaurant. Great food, efficient and courteous service, nice inviting atmosphere. We’ve had ice cream at their shop next door multiple times in the past. After lunch , we went across the street to their bakery to take some treats home with us. Highly recommend all three places. Quality products. We’ll definitely be back for dinner at the restaurant. Five Stars.

Everything was perfect. The food was delicious (try the lobster avocado salad) and the service was great. Can’t wait to go back.
