Harbor Lights is the premier seafood house located in East Norwalk, CT. Located on the Norwalk Harbor, it offers well-prepared, attractively presented and sophisticated fare. Open year round, the glassed-in terrace allows for a comfortably heated dining experience in the winter without losing the outside dining experience in the summer. Our long dock in front of the restaurant provides plenty of room for boaters to tie up for lunch or dinner, and the dining room affords fantastic sunset views. Harbor Lights has been bringing the fresh refined flavors of the Mediterranean to Diners in Fairfield County for over a decade. The Prime sunset seating and views of the Harbor, the breeze, the um-brella-bedecked outdoor patio, unparalleled service and incredible food make this waterfront spot hard to resist.

Harbor Lights was great - - as usual. We come back time and time again.

This was our first visit to Harbor Lights. It is a beautiful location right on the water but that seems to be most of what this restaurant has going for it. The accoustics were terrible. It is just one big room and it was very loud. I will say the servers were lovely and polite and gave us good service. We were there for Thanksgiving dinner. The appetizers our group ordered were fine but the turkey was awful. It was some of the driest turkey I’ve ever eaten. And no cranberry sauce or gravy to soften the blow. In addition, I thought $490 (including tip) for 5 people was pretty steep, even with 2 drinks each (for 4 of us - one person just had water). We will not be returning.

Food and service were very good. Reservation was for 4 people and when two of us arrived we were not told that the other two people were already seated. They found us at the bar waiting. Following that, the rest of the dining experience was very good. The next day I rec'd an email from Open Table telling me the restaurant had canceled our reservation because we had not shown up. I then sent Open Table a message to correct this, which they did, and I rec'd an email
in return.

We had a family celebration at Harbor Lights before Thanksgiving. Our party ordered the pear salad, a dozen blue point oysters, shrimp cocktail, the halibut, and the seafood stew. The kitchen also made a lovely vegetarian risotto at the request of the vegetarian in our group. Everything was delicious. We also ordered Malbec and Pinot Grigio and they were very good too.

Went on a Tuesday night which was perfect as it was not crowded and my elderly mom and friend could hear! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. Even got a bottle of wine 1/2 price, which was an added bonus. I recommend going during the week when it is quieter, unless you are looking for a busy atmosphere! Great service as well.
