I've owned a home in the area for 5 years now and it astonishes me that any town so close to New York--a major destination for fine dining--would have so many restaurants that look wonderful and inviting but have menus that may have been created the Eisenhower administration. Granted, Community Table is a bit more expensive, but not exponentially so. That said, the menu is inventive and different, the plating is beautiful and portions are relatively small but appropriate so that after eating an appetizer and a main course with a glass of wine, I was pleasantly satisfied rather than stuffed.

Community Table was a gem in an area which is becoming known for good food. The local, creative menu included something for everyone. Their cocktails were innovative and the wine & beer list was quite good. We enjoyed going there for dinner or even just drinks after an event. This restaurant and its place in our community will be missed.

We ate here to celebrate a friend's birthday, but also because we heard the very sad news that they're closing on 5/15/17, so we wanted to enjoy one last meal here before the doors closed for good! The food has always been amazing, and very creative, using local stuff as much as possible. It's utterly fresh and expertly prepared, with everything popping, crunching, flaking, or melting in your mouth as it's supposed to do. The decor and ambiance is clean and sort of contemporary with rustic materials; it's a trendy combo and well suited to the food they serve. They also have a "community table" where you may be seated with others you'll meet as you eat – pretty neat! We're sorry to see it go, but hope another establishment picks up here where Community Table leaves off, with equally stellar results! Thank you, Community Table!

It was my first time and I brought my grown son because he likes unique food. We weren't disappointed. Every item on the menu was unique and we loved our meal. It was quiet so we could really talk. Service was superb. The accommodated my gluten problem. I highly recommend it.

The food is really imaginative, the hostess is delightful and efficient, but the waiter was completely useless and the bartenders were far too busy being sociable to do their jobs. The problem with many of the staff is that they don't have much interest in the diners. Yet despite this, the food is so interesting that we go back because of the chef and the lovely Briana , who always makes you feel welcome.

My husband and I visited Community Table for the first time on Easter Sunday, 2017. Our meal was absolutely heavenly. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable, perfectly pairing wine to my appetizer and entree. He answered all my husband's question and gave us ample time to decide on our courses. We will remember this excellent meal for many years to come.

The food was wonderful. The staff helpful. Our reservation was for a mid April Friday at 9 which we pushed back to 8:45. (They serve to 10 on Fri/Sat) By 9:30 we were the only people in the dining room The staff was great offering us desert and coffee but it was very clear we were the last thing between them and the door. It may get better as summer progresses but if you want a relaxing meal now get in by 8:00

We had an excellent meal where everything served was delicious. We were big initial customers, but after the bar opened began to feel increasingly unwelcome. I have to say that this was a very quiet Friday night, so it was always to book a table last minute. If we could repeat our recent experience on a regular basis, we would be back as regular customers.

My wife and I celebrated my birthday. Food was wonderful and service excellent. While the atmosphere is very nice, I dont care for the dining arrangement for 2 along he wall. Too close to your neighbor. Can hear their conversation and if the couple is doused in some kind of body perfume, say good bye to your tastebuds.

I couldn't love Community Table any more! The food is outstanding—truly one of the best Scandinavian restaurants I've ever dined in, including many in Scandinavia. The vibe inside is like an escape from America into Scandi cosmopolitanism. Cocktails are alone incredible. If you think potato chips and poached egg on Elk tar-tar is showing off, think again. It absolutely works. Whether it's a simple dish or some wild concoction like the formerly mentioned, the food is beyond delicious....it's a total experience.

Community Table never disappoints. From to appetizers to the main entrees and ultimately the desserts each course was better than the previous. The desserts were simply amazing. Our server was very personable, attentive and explained how each dish was made with precision. Even the servers who plated our desserts explained each item on the dish as they placed each one. This is definitely a restaurant not to be missed!!

Expensive for NW CT but well worth it. I would prefer classical music rather than the bad music I heard, or at least good pop like Cole Porter and Gershwin songs. Service was very good and also liked the relatively small portions. Food including bread was great. Not my first time nor my last. I will be back. Already recommended to a friend looking for a place to celebrate 50th anniversary.

Usually go to Market Place in Woodbury, CT but decided to give this place a shot. Unfortunately our visit did not go so well. The food, while phenomenal, can not overshadow the complete lack of cordial service by the staff. We had 5:45 reservations and were rushed out of the restaurant before we even sat down. The waitress whose name I don't know because she didn't introduce herself was rude and very off putting. One instance in particular was when our $19 appetizer was cleared from the table while we were still eating it. The waitress also often blatantly interrupted us while we were speaking to each other in order to repeatedly asked without due time if we knew what we wanted to order. This was not a good experience and I would not come back.

We pass this place often and to be honest to took some research to learn that it was not a food pantry, or a cooking class facility. I took my fiance here for his birthday dinner and he was very excited. So excited that we did not control ourselves with how much we ordered. The food was great as was the service and the fact that it's provided by local farms is a bonus. I also, appreciate when a bartender knows what they are doing and can create a fine crafted drink.

Two things to note:
- The flatbread that is served with the cheese is not what I would consider a flat bread, it is more like a crisp. This probably works for the best though since you do not get stuffed so easily but they should consider changing the name.
- The dessert that we picked was "different", It was made with a beet pure, it was interesting and refreshing but if you are looking for something sweet you might want to get the chocolate mousse.

I made an appt for 2 @ 7 pm - I got contacted TWICE to make sure I would keep this appt.
Then when I arrived I was told that we would be having a 'very long' wait because the a couple came in 45 minutes late and 'my table' was given to them.....I guess one can be really late and still get seated? BUT someone who actually keeps the appointed time gets shafted?

We ate dinner at the bar....there's gotta be a better way to reward people who abide by apps and others who take advantage.....at the very least the woman seating us at the bar could have offered us free drinks for the inconvenience....it's a way to make for better neighbors??

Great restaurant in Litchfield County. We went on a quiet Monday night and sat in the bar area, which has a lovely ambience. The food was excellent as was the service. Best bread we've had in a while. Desserts were also spectacular. I'm not sure how the dining room side of the restaurant would be since it was closed that night, but the bar area, even when full, was reasonably quiet and you could actually have a conversation. A lovely place to dine.

We have recently become new regulars to Community Table, finally got around to write a review. The food is unique to say the least, this chef is doing things you won't see anywhere else around. Fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere and the service is top notch. And if you love wine like we do make sure you talk to the host Todd, he pulled together a mini wine tasting for us on the spot. Truly a hidden gem of Connecticut!
