The oysters, octopus and goat cheese salad were all delicious. The lobster risotto was soggy and the steak was not well prepared.

Unusual menu. Good service. Very stark and too loud. Apps, entrees and drinks very pricey. Not a good value compared to similar restaurants.

We were celebrating a special anniversary ( indicated at time of reservation) & hoped for a more memorable evening such as our previous experiences at L’escale & Artisan.

Thanksgiving dinner for two was a lovely experience at La Plage. We were lucky to be seated by the window and enjoyed a spectacular sunset view. I highly recommend the oysters which were very fresh and delicious. The service was amazing. This is our 2nd time there, and we will be back.

The food and the service were outstanding. The only drawback was the excessive noise level. It was hard to converse with my wife who sat only a couple of feet away, of a large table of heavy drinking women next to us who made an obnoxious amount of noise. Given the crowded amount of diners, we were not able to relocate away from them.

My family and I booked a table for seven at La Plage for Thanksgiving. To start, Riley was lovely to accommodate our request to change our reservation just two days beforehand. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, airy, and did not at all make anyone feel at risk of being on top of strangers. The closed in patio had stunning views of the water and easily socially distanced from other patrons. The staff were very well trained and accommodating, even replacing a salad that needed modifying within minutes. Each course was expertly prepare, delicious, and more than enough food for each of us. We kept remarking how much we were enjoying ourselves and what a perfect spot it was for the holiday. We will definitely be returning.

This was our second visit to La Plage. We were greeted and welcomed back by the friendly hostess. Since it was Thanksgiving, the menu was prix fixe, but had plenty of choices for our party of 4. Every course was excellent and we were even given turkey sliders to take home for our leftovers. We will certainly be regulars at this wonderful venue.

The menu is very limited, not enough options. Price are very high! $24 for a pizza? Ordered the black bass and salmon, had no taste at all. This was very disappointing especially for the high prices. Such a beautiful location but not worth the money

The food, service, and view are outstanding. My husband and I have been there twice--most recently to celebrate our anniversary. We shared an excellent bottle of wine recommended by the waitress, and a cauliflower and hummus appetizer. He enjoyed the lobster risotto; I enjoyed the bass. Both were beautifully presented and delicious. The service was excellent.

Food was very good, however waiter was NOT attentive. I made reservations through Open Table and SPECIFICALLY asked that a surprise dessert be brought to the table for my husband, as it was his Birthday.
When nothing came and I had to flag down the waiter for the check ($150. plus tip), I told him about my previous request and asked him if he had been made aware. He answered no, and after checking with the hostess about said request, brought a dessert with a candle as we were leaving. The surprise was by that time ruined as the discussion took place in front of my husband. No apology either. The bussers took better care of us than the waiter.

Everyone wants to love whatever restaurant is in this fantastic spot - but La Plage really missed the mark. At brunch we ordered a dozen oysters. Waiter brought 6 oysters, at the same time as our entrees. We had to ask for silverware, food was purely 'ok'. My avocado toast with eggs was nicely presented but the bread was thin and very dry. They may need to work out the kinks - because it would be a shame not to love this space.

Dinner was good. Steak was cooked to my preference (medium-well). Could have used more non-seafood options on the menu.
Service was great once seated.

This was the best dining experience we’ve had in years! The food and the service were superb. I had the roasted veggies with hummus, pomegranate and pepitas; the farro salmon; and the panecotta for dessert - all beautifully prepared and delicious. My husband, who, as an accomplished non-professional chef is very difficult to please, was extremely happy with the halibut. We will be returning to La Plage as soon as possible!

Magnifique. The setting has always been brilliant and continues to set the standard for Fairfield County waterfront dining. Food was fresh, appropriately sized, and thoughtfully prepared. Prices are reasonable relative to the quality of the experience. Expect to take your time — if you’re in a rush, you’ll be frustrated — service is unhurried. This is a luxury experience; enjoy it.

La Plage is the newest iteration of the restaurant currently at the Inn at Longshore. The location can not be beat- water views and lovely setting at Westport's Longshore Golf Course. We started with an interesting cocktail named "Smoke on the Water" which was delightful. Among our choices were Superfood salad with shrimp and buttery Maine lobster rolls, served with side salad, coleslaw and French fries on a seaweed brioche. Everything was spot on delicious and we were given samples of the focaccia- laced with fruits, OMG these were wonderful. Service was efficient and friendly- the house was about half full. As three folks in our 60's & 70's, we decided to eat inside as the diners on the patio had little kids and it was quite noisy on a cooler afternoon. We split the molten chocolate dessert with pistachio gelato- compliments of the house to celebrate a birthday. Attention to detail and light and bright decor made for a lovely spot for Sunday brunch.

Finally a great restaurant has arrived at this location. Great views with fabulous food. Brunch menu is wonderful. We had the smoked salmon with capers creme fraise and dill pitsa, the sirloin steak with sunny side up eggs with pomme frites, and the halibut Benedict with citrus hollandaise. All absolutely exceptional. Great selection of wines by the glass and cocktail list.
