Again another wonderful dining experience . Thank you all at Chamard! Joan and Peter
Really pleasant atmosphere and great burgers and pomme frites! The cozy fire just added to the ambiance!
Tuesday night's Burger Night brings us to Chamard. Can't beat the price, $18 for an AMAZING burger with pomme frites and a side salad with a glass of their Stone Cold white or red. Worth the 30 minute drive for us, despite the lack of attention from our server. The restaurant was busy for a Tuesday with only 2 servers (that I noticed), which meant in the inattention (hence the 4 stars). But, I would definitely go back, especially if they keep this special ongoing!
Country dining, good food and wine. I was surprised how good the Cabernet from Clinton was. Very nice atmosphere
First time here. Was a birthday celebration. What a GREAT Place!!! There Burger was FANTASTIC!!!!
Highly recommend you go here and enjoy the wine and food; especially now that its starting to get warmer and you can enjoy the outside area.
Chamard has great ambiance and service. Our first courses were decent but the meal went downhill from there. The dishes were both very under seasoned and since the chef thinks his food is the best of the best there was no salt on the table to add to the plate to make it palatable. If a chef is going to leave salt off the table he better be putting the most perfectly seasoned food out, not the case here. We had the steak frites and pork schnitzel. The dessert was the icing on the cake (no pun intended). We order the profiteroles with Arethusa ice cream. I am glad the only reason we got dessert was because of the ice cream, otherwise the profiteroles tasted and had the texture of week old pastries, not edible. The wine was nothing to write home about, therefore, we will not be making a trip back.
We went to Chamard to celebrate my Mom’s birthday and it exceeded my expectations. We started with the wind tasting and enjoyed the live music as well as the wines we tried. Then we moved to the dining room and had a perfect table that wasn’t too noisy which is what I had requested. I thought the cheese and charcuterie plates that we ordered as starters were very nice and we all enjoyed our meals very much. I particularly recommend the duck and their Cabernet Sauvignon!!! The property is beautiful so I look forward to going back in the summer and fall. Perfect place for a special dinner!!!
One of our favorite day /evening venues. We love everything and everyone in the place. A gem of a vineyard and full service restaurant. It’s like arriving to a favorite friend’s home to share the day/evening with. Good conversation matched by good food and wines. Thank you!!!Joan and Peter
our reservation was cancelled due to us getting there late because of traffic issues so I can't comment on the Bistro -- but we did manage to grab the last table in the tasting room and had a great experience! our server was friendly and attentive and the food was GREAT -- that mac 'n cheese is to die for! my boyfriend is still dreaming about their burger as well -- a great place to go on a dreary weekend afternoon ... just know that it does get super crowded so I would recommend making a reservation in the Bistro if you want to eat -- otherwise, have fun just hanging out and doing a tasting -- the wines are really good!
Met a friend for lunch. Great food and beautiful atmosphere. Will return for dinner.
Excellent service as always. Flatbread was exceptionally delicious.
Delicious foods, all meals were fabulous. Gorgeous setting and great staff. Can’t wait to go again!
What a real Treat. We arrived about an hour before dinner went into the Tasting room, spoke to the bartender, explained what we were looking for in a wine she suggested Stone cold Red. It was a great choice. We sat down to dinner had crab meat appetizer, my wife had Gnocci and I had the duck, again excellent. It was such a pleasant experience. It was just starting to snow as we left making the whole dinner even more romantic. I recommend it to anyone who likes Time Well Spent
It was my first experience and overall excellent; I’ve already recommended it. The waitstaff were amazing; warm, friendly, yet professional and accommodating.
The food was astounding....absolutely delicious. It was well prepared, beautifully presented, and very flavorful.
The only downside to the evening was that the tasting room was quite loud and too busy to actually take part. We just ordered a couple of bottles to start with before dinner. The cab was excellent!
Lovely spot, excellent food, and our service was first-rate.
Chamard Vineyards is amazing and never disappoints!! Our favorite spot!! Food is amazing, service is wonderful and the ambiance is perfect!! Add a great glass of wine and this place can't be beat!!
Beautiful location. The waitress was so sweet and accommodating. Great food and wine. Only downfall is the portion sizes are on the smaller side (as to be expected with bistro dining).
Amazing place been living in connecticut for 35 years wish I had found this place sooner. One Side is a wine tasting area and the other a beautiful dining area overlooking the Vineyard. food was excellent and so was the wine. The waitstaff was also excellent and attentive will definitely be back soon.
We always love coming!!!
I really enjoyed the food and surroundings...the wine we had was excellent and the food was terrific.
Good wine and meal. Fun date night.
We have been to chamards many times and every time feels like a new visit...the charm of the dinning area...the staff..and of course our meals have all been wonderful ...always looking forward to visiting again...thank you for such a nice change in the restaurant business....
Friendly staff, great atmosphere and amazing food and wine.
Food was excellent as well as wine
We always enjoy visiting during the spring, summer and fall for brunch.
This was the first time we had dinner and it was fabulous!
The seared tuna special was amazing!
We very much enjoyed the live music in the tasting room after dinner. Staff is always so friendly and welcoming.
Thank you for a much needed date night!
We come here often and the food and service are always great. This night it was about zero degrees outside and the room was a little chilly, other than that it was a great meal.
Our favorite place to go for an excellent meal. Friendly staff and excellent chef.
Great every time!!
Went for a Christmas friends gathering. The food, service and ambience were exceptional. Would go back in a heartbeat.
this was the best lunch i have had by far. We stumbled upon this great find and wanted to stay all day! The place is beautiful and the food was delectable. However, the reason for this review and the recommendation to others was the waiter. We had Cooper, and he was truly one of the best waiters i have ever had! Attentive, knowledgeable and made you feel as if you were his famy member. A tremendous asset to your restaurant!!!!
I loved the lunch menu and was excited to try this restaurant. The flavors of the food were great but the portions were a bit small for the price. We also felt as though the waiter seemed inexperienced. The wine is delicious (as it should be with the winery being right there). I will definitely go back and recommend to friends.
This was our second time visiting Chamard. The food is good - a solid "B". We are not big-portion-people, and totally appreciate fine dining, however we both left feeling a little...well, hungry.
The lamb in cassoulet was delicious but again, a little light on the meat, heavy on the beans. The cod en papillote was a tad dry and not very interesting; the vegetables were nearly non-existent. Having recently relocated from California, we were pleasantly surprised by the wines. Charming vineyard and tasting room.
Excellent food especially the steak frites. Could use a good Pinot Noir on the wine list.
We celebrated my father's 80th birthday at Chamard. It was the perfect setting. He's from Italy and grew up on vineyards. Being on this beautiful property put a smile on his face immediately. I live in Brooklyn and booked this based on other OpenTable reviews so I hope this review will make another family celebration a memorable and happy one.
Sea bass and gnocchi were excellent. The only issue we had was ordered cod and was given gnocchi. Either case the server corrected bill. Will plan to return and try again.
Service was excellent!! Waiter was friendly, professional, enjoyable and efficient. Had a very good meal and enjoyed the setting.
Was a bit pricey though, but we may try again on another very special occasion.
Might suggest offering complimentary wine tastings with dinner. Could go a long way in helping to chose a bottle with the meal.
Delightful evening with friends. We arrived at sunset and enjoyed a spectacular sky above the pond. Inside, we were seated at a comfortable table for 6. We started with the sparkling rose, which was lovely. When we ordered 18 oysters, we were told there were only 6 left. A very apologetic waitress brought us a complimentary shrimp cocktail. Our salad and dinner choices were all varied but all wonderful. The menu is varied enough to satisfy all. We enjoyed the Stone Cold White with dinner. Our server was helpful and attentive. This is a special place to relax and enjoy fresh flavorful food with friends.
Beautiful setting with excellent food. Overall wonderful place which I will definitely be going back again :)
A pretty place both inside and out. Some house wines ( risling) good, service professional, food nicely presented.
We had celebrated my Wife's 40th Birthday 4 years ago at Chamard where we had a private wine tasting party in the cellar which was just awesome. Since then, we have gone back to enjoy dinner with our children. Driving the hour from New Canaan is worth the investment of time, as Chamard is a special place for us. We just went again on Saturday to celebrate her 44th and once again, another homerun with the great food and staff!!!!!!!!
