I have been to Cafe Routier several times now and have never been disappointed. I enjoy the dining room but the bar seating is great too. The food and service is outstanding we even have a favorite waiter that we ask for now. We will be back again and again even with a drive of almost an hour from home. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, definitely a gem!!

We had a nice time at Cafe Routier. We were seated when we arrived. Our server was a little pushy even though we asked him to give us a few minutes to get seated and talk a little. The food was good. My hanger steak was very tough but ok. The wine was great.

Cafe Routier is our favorite restaurant, which we visit often. The new menu is creative as we’ve come to expect, and the service, as always, outstanding. Two new menu items we tried - the eggplant/short rib appetizer, and wild boar bolognese entre ,were exceptional! We enjoyed a cozy booth with wonderful service, but we missed Art, who runs the bar. We can’t wait for our next trip to Cafe Routier!!!

Cafe Routier remains one of my favorite restaurants in Connecticut. The cuisine is inventive and consistently good. The staff is thoughtful. I've been going there for many many years and I am never disappointed.
