Food was delicious! Nice leisurely lunch with the hubby. Wait staff was top notch. Very covid friendly atmosphere. They know what they are doing there and take all the precautions. Will be back with the “girlfriend’s soon!!

This was our first time. It was a great experience. Many things coming out of the kitchen looked great and we cannot wait to go back again and try other things.

Really enjoyed the primitivo red. May have needs the best red wine I have ever had at a vineyard. Great ambience. Food was tasty but my only complaint is the piece of grilled chicken that was in the sandwich was half the size of the bun. Was the smallest piece of chicken on a sandwich.

Most delicious and amazing meal of my life! My husband and I went here on my birthday on New Year’s and the specials were incredible. I had the rack of lamb and my husband had the lobster squid ink pasta. We loved the wine flight and the desserts as well. Highly recommend for delicious food, wonderfully romantic ambiance, and prompt and attentive service! We will definitely be back.

We live in Deer Park, NY, however, we've celebrated our anniversary three different times by having a fantastic dinner at Chamard Bistro. The first time there was before Covid, so we also did a wine tasting. I highly recommend Chamard both for their wine and food. The women who seated and served us were lovely. Very nice atmosphere!

The food was outstanding except for one dish. The Parisian Gnocchi I expected to be a savory dish, however, it was very sweet. It didn't taste bad, just not what I'd expected. Other than that, the wine, the fireplace, the service, all excellent!

Unfortunately, not usual best, duck and salmon were dry and steaks meh. With spending that kind of money pretty disappointing, especially for my pops 89th. Newsletter with special menu doesn’t say (unless I missed it) serving only after 2pm. Waitress is phenomenal though.

We had a lovely lunch here on a Saturday. Wait staff was friendly and very helpful, and food was delicious. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Chamard Dry Riesling, and bought 3 bottles to take home! We'll surely return.

If you’ve never been to Chamard you’re missing out! This is one of the best restaurants on the shoreline! The food comes out looking like a piece of artwork and it’s beyond delicious. And the staff is so friendly and bubbly!! I have many dietary restrictions and they always accommodate me with a smile. The grounds are beautiful too! I love this little gem in Clinton, CT

We loved our meal at Chamard Vineyard! The atmosphere was very relaxed and quiet, and we appreciated how the bistro staff handled seating. There was enough space between customers to allow us to feel comfortable! Our meal was delicious and filling, and the wine tasting flight was perfect. Definitely a great place to visit!

Servers were fantastic, food was excellent. Actually better than excellent. Wines are all good at Chamard.
Its a great place for a special lunch or dinner. They had us in a "private" room that would probably sit 12 comfortably. It was a nice surprise for our group of 8 and much appreciated. It made our little celebration feel that much more special.
I would give six stars if available!

We had a fabulous 50th anniversary meal. The salad, the duck, the chocolate pot de creme were all outstanding. I can't wait to go back there for lunch to try one of the amazing-sounding sandwiches!

We started our meal with the cheese platter. The cheese was excellent, but we would have been willing to spend a few dollars more for larger servings of the cheese, almonds, hot baguette and honeycomb spread that were featured on the platter. My husband had the Salmon Entree, which was served on a bed of veggies and cooked perfectly. We shared the Farm Burger, Pommes Frittes and Mac and Cheese. Loved that the Farm Burger was served with a fresh green salad with a tasty vinaigrette. For dessert, we shared the Dark Chocolate Mousse in the chocolate shell with caramel sauce and whipped cream-Absolutely delicious! Enjoyed a wonderful bottle of the Estate Rose with our meal. Kathy was our server, and she was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back again!

The food was good. The community is still recovering from COVID and the service could have used some more folks working but that is the new norm. Quite honestly my only “complaint “ was that they sat us boxed in a corner against a high half wall so we had no room to move and lacked any sort of view. I would understand if they were trying to space folks out or if the restaurant was full but neither applied. We had reservations and they just sort of stuck us in a bad spot.
I would go back and hope they continue operating as it is a nice breath of fresh air in terms of theme and location.

The same relaxing atmosphere and warmth, we always go to Chamard for. We’re Always greeted warmly, and shown to our table, which in this case was near the fire. So Cosy! Dinner was great and cooked to perfection. Love the very French specials! The only thing I would wish for would be a little more variety of main Entrees.

Pleasant lunch. Hamburger delicious but cooked a little more than the requested medium rare. Chicken sandwich tasty but chicken breast somewhat dry. Potatoes frites were yummy and presented attractively. Too bad portion not too generous. Service, even though understaffed was efficient. Pricey.

Chamard Bistro is our happy place. CarrieAnn is fabulous and always makes us feel like we are the only ones there. The food (scallops/steak/schnitzel/burger/duck) was delicious. The ambience in the tasting room is cozy and warm with the fire going. It is a real gem.
